Thank you Berlin. I’m not sure what I made, but I know it sounds like Radiohead, Underworld, Primal Scream and David Bowie. I tried to stay true to my surroundings, I got to play in the sandbox with cool toys – Neumann mics, a 1965 Yamaha Concert Grand piano, the Roland Jupiter-6. I made some awesome new friends, and most of all, I got to see the world.
I’m not sure what happens next – a video, remixes, maybe even a vinyl pressing. All this shit costs money – my money. But I feel blessed to have these choices, and the funds to make them – and I’m excited to release these songs to the world.
Much love to Holger Luken (drums), Philip Morton Andernach (bass guitar, guitar, synths) and Matthew Brown (guitar, engineer & co-producer) for their contributions, and to Simon Berckelman at Golden Retriever Studio for hosting us.
I love being an independent musician, and of course, I Love Dick. (not really).Β New music coming soon.
