Illdisposed In Asian Tsunami

Posted on February 12, 2008

Everyone knows about the recent disaster in Asia on Boxing Day. What you probably didn’t know was that Jonas Kloge, the bass player from Illdisposed was on holiday in Phi Phi, Thailand at the time the terrible tsunami struck. Fortunately he managed to get himself and a little boy safe on top of a building before escaping up on a mountain. An email from Jonas says: “I was in a restaurant when lots of hysterical people suddenly came running into the place. Everything was chaos and at first I didn’t know what was going on. I went to the door and looked outside, at bit confused, the sight was shocking. Huge waves were filling the streets with water and the palms were breaking like matches. Water filled the restaurant and partly broke the staircase which led to the roof of the building. I climbed up the broken stairs and when I reached the top of the stairs I saw a woman and her 2 children struggling in the water under the stairs. I climbed down the stairs again, reaching out for one of the kids, carrying him up to the roof of the building where we were safe so far. Fortunately the woman and her other child were saved as well. On top of the building I could see how the wave destroyed everything, houses crumbled and trees broke. When the wave disappeared we ran like hell to a nearby mountain where we spent the night.” All at Roadrunner are relieved to hear he is ok and saddened by the massive losses suffered by so many people.
