You know writers that end up writing about writing? Or about not writing, or about just trying to write. Well, it’s hard to make a song about making a song. Some people I can say have succeeded in it, but not many. I don’t want to give it a try. I’d rather stick to something else. Not drumming about trying to do percussion.
Get to the point: We’ve been silent as hell, as we’ve been working our behinds off. The more you work on music, the more silent it seems to get. When you work it’s hard to keep on shouting about it.
Silence is good for our guitar hero Okko, as all the recordings are now over, and he’s concentrating on mixing and mastering the stuff the others played. He will soon be turning into wobbling pink mold in the corner of his house, as the solitude and too much mixing start to work on him.
But we have a solution: Releasing a record this spring requires other stuff, not just the music. So we’re taking Okko out of his house today, to go and see a few places for our promotional pictures, and some animals. It’s good to see animals every now and then, in between mixing and mastering. You’ll be getting a few glimpses of this process in a few days if we’re not eaten by those animals.
We’re also in the process of making a music video. Maybe several. But let’s start with one. To be honest I’d like to direct one myself. I have the right car for the great getaway scene (my friend’s old yellow car), and that’s about all I have. A Great start! Next I will need a camera.
