We spent most of Saturday on Pepa’s ranch. Pepa is the bass player of Z Ničeho Nic and he lives on a hill in the forest outside Strakonice.

Our Czech mini-tour with Z Ničeho Nic started off in Prague at the Matrix club. The Matrix is a huge venue that could hold over a thousand people, and it has a great sound and atmosphere. We got there in time thanks to William’s cool new smartphone navigation system, and were greeted by Honza (Z Ničeho Nic singer) and Jirka, a friend of the band who volunteered to be our guide during these 3 days. (As it later turned out, he had just been out of hospital after being hit by a train, hence the nickname Train Buster.) Continue reading
The Czech trip was awesome. A detailed tour diary will follow soon, now we’d just like to say thanks to Honza and Z Ničeho Nic for organizing all this, Jirka the Train Buster for being our guide, and all the people who came to the gigs. Díky!
