IT'S FINISHED!

We're back from Norway, with the finished master on CD. Cant believe it's all done. And cant believe how inspiring and frriggin tiring it's been. not least because we were doing near 10 hour days in Duper, but also the fact that we really packed in a whole of other stuff as well, The Lost Weekend Festival on some small island off Bergen called Askoy, the crazy rides we spent hanging on for dear life in Jorgen's tiny BUT FAST (he insists) speedboat. Bergen fishcakes... the foosball games... Landmark and the many hugs from the crazy, wonderful people we met who far outdo us in their passion to make or help make music, regardless what the deal is. Oya festival, sonic youth... shining... kill... meeting Martin of Jaga. Our little apartment in Bergen. Sharing a room with the guys in the Oslo hostel, ALL four snoring pretty much different riffs, polyrhythmic and polyphonic too! Jeez... So many memories in so short a time. My sentences getting shorter cos this whole intense experience and the long plane ride home has been too much... i'm knackered and will update you all more on the final tracks on Blank Walls and photos of our trip soon! after a 12 hour snooze maybe....
