Yikes! This is what happens when you come to America. You have to deal with “that flu” or “that stomach virus that’s going around.”
In America, we’ve been taking so many medicines for so many years, and ingesting vitamins and obsessing about germs and sanitizing our lives that now, after generations of cleansing, someone gets the sniffles in late October and by December, everyone’s got the fucking flu.
Meshuggah’s Jens Kidman has the flu, and last night, missed the band’s set in Atlanta.
“This flu means business,” says the band. “He has been forbidden to even speak. He’s mute for now. We will play [tonight, February 12, in Georgia] anyway. So memorize the lyrics and bring your very best growl, Atlanta. You will all be Jens tonight!! Let’s make this happen! We hope he’s back tomorrow, or it’ll be vocal duties Charlotte!”
That actually would have been phat to witness.
I hope video from this show surfaces soon.
You know, that gives me an idea. From now on, when an awesome band loses its singer, before getting a new one, they should just tour and just toss a wireless mike into the crowd, and let people pass that shit around.
Just cut the mike between songs, so no jabrones can yell “San Dimas high school football rules!” or plug their blogs.
