The gig at MX Rockbar 4/6 is cancelled .
To much drugs and alcohol might be involved in this event.Or was it to little of these substances?
Heard something about bigger events that's sucks all the attention like black holes. I'm not sure about that.
The good thing is that we now can concentrate on songs to the new album instead.
So what do we do between our day jobs?
Tweaking the craft, little by little,the main focus is on the repertoire for the MX Rockbar event with Cloudscape,Miosis and Astrakhan.
We did an excellent rehearsal on Saturday,but the Monday rehearsal became a total mystery.
A real nightmare,everything that could go wrong really manifested hard in to the moment.
And we never where there with the right timing .So we just have analyse the brain lag and get into the grove so to speak.
And it's not the Madonna 80s hit we working on. It's everything but that, anyway that's what we got to do.
So its the year of the monkey in China. Wish it could be a good year for a bunch of Swedish apes as well.
And from the well comes water that's behaves like our time here on earth...it slips away as we try to get a grip of it.
Even the most skilled tree - monkey lose the grip some time.
Not saying that we are skilled but we are slowly getting up in the trees again.And if the monkey king shall find his crown in the canopy that's the question.
Wow what a treat! But now it's done!Finally after all these years with to much junk every where. We threw out the old gears and a new area to produce drums was born.We call it the corner of separation. It's a place to work with drums in stealth mode.
And the best of it all was to get rid of those damned big speakers who was in constant war with me.Now we can get into production again.
Screwing and conecting tubes together,its like a little forest around me.
Im a like fucking plumber lost in this tubular mess.
No plumbing or screwing in the ordinary way.This is a test of a new hybrid setup for the drums.
Been there done that before, so am I just pulling of the same old experiment again and expecting a different outcome.
Insane! - yes probably, but with a new sample library things could actually work.
The kit were up and felt real good to play.
We plugged everything together in the mixer and play through some songs,
It's just died, after hours of tweaks and filtering we couldn't get the electronic toms to live.They just sounds fat and boringly dead.
Back to square one again.
Just woke up and got a rare moment of insight.
The spring is knocking on the door, ok not Heavens door, but it's on the way.
And with the warmer climate in the back we will set sails for,or anyway our coordinates will be calibrated to the southern part of the land.
We got a great gig in the sky, ok that's the limit!But we hope to reach that high.
Anyhow we shall be at the place called Mx Rockbar.Doing a prog night in Allingsås 4/6.
That's a great way to start a weekend in Sweden.Have a few cold beer's in the bar and check out the bands on this event.
Then you are prepared to do your tourist thing with ease. Your body is strengthened by the nutrients from the beer and your mind is hopefully assembled in the right order.So do it like a spa thing,prog night cleansing to shield you from the nonsense that's want to incorporate your mind.
Vine is fine but whiskey's quicker.
It's just the natural law of booze and pills
Not a great idea if you want to be around.
Yes we have been under the surface.
Life will find a way anyway so to say.
Personally I'm drained of all energy and slowly shaking my limbs after hibernation. But we just got new super strong material from the architect he provided with the last parts of the complex puzzle.
What is the puzzle? It's quite easy to see in the area of riddles.
Maybe you figure it out by now.
It's a bigger cluster of tunes on a material item.
1. It's not a wax roll
2. It's not a stone tablet
3. Ok its not a dvd but close to that
4. Its something that's spinns clockwise
5. Cat scratch fever is not on this one
6. 2 and 1 will do the act
Mayday, Mayday! another grey day, waits outside. Haven't seen the forecast for today but know it's grey.
We're doing a rehearsal to night an that's my beacon of light on days like this.
And we have an old friend coming to visit us. So we are doing a personal gig for him.
21.00 -22.30 Brother Ape plays Consert for Krulle
Location : Top sectet facility
The winter is finally present, we had a green Christmas but now comes the cold comfort from north crusing down on the polar vinds.
In this frosty environment
I spotted a fox near the heart of Stockholm,the creature was in good shape and went further down the boulevard .I looked at the faces of to men with lose hanging chins. Suprised we all pointed towards the animal shouting -That's not a dog!
No, that was not a dog,neither a mirage, just a hen snatcher,hm...how would a mash up of Foxy lady and Fox on a run work out, just wondering?...maybe there are some attempts for this on YouTube.
The band just had the first gathering for 2016,we didn't notice or felt some kind of mysterious smell of the animal in subject. And we have no plans to pic up any foxy tunes in the repertoire. Some retro spices have flushed through the hair of the ape during the Ep episodes , but If the first dose of music for this year will have that continuum, I don't know. The man in the know of this,works behind closed doors and haven't reveled anything of the matter.
