Having been in such a panic trying to get tickets to the gig at hoxton. i eventually got there and saw Howlin' Pelle Almqvist on the phone walking around outside the venue. he was so nice he allowed me to interupt and get a photo and autograph from him! made the whole panic worth while.

And i love the second picture it's so funny because he looks like james brown- a soul singer with the cape

Så javla snygg!

Where: Adelaide, Australia

When: 2005 October Tour

Hives play Adelaide, Australia 2005. SHOUTING! JUMPING! GUITARS! THE HIVES! They tore it up in the same briliant fasion they do every night. My 16 year old self was in Hives heaven as Pelle wailed, The Dr. boomed, Vigilante and Nick down-stroke seizured, and Chris morse-coded with the urgancy responding to planet earth's SOS (re: today's state of rock n roll!).

Half way through the set, Pelle swung his microphone around by its cord at light speed. The flimsy adhesive tape bonding the mic to the lead suddenly gave way! The mic was launched into the crowd like a rocket to russia. It came right at me. In an instant, I froze up with fear and prepared for impact.

Whistling past my ear, it struck the woman behind me. Incapacitated, she made her way out of the crowd clutching her bleeding nose, laughing. Impressed at the woman's laughing boldness, I vowed to enjoy the show extra more on h! er behalf.

In the end everybody in the crowd had gladly become victims of trademark Hives dynamism...just some more physically than others.
