kid ikaresque to me. crappy tape-recorded stuff for you and yours. click

BIG UP! that was pretty something, dear city of love! und danke nochmal,

- booking & freindship. thanks, stefan!
X IS FOR KISSES
11.03.09 - FROG BONE 1/2
ok...the tape release show(s) for the split tape
will apparently have to do without the actual covers,
since the print shop is a lame one, haha. but what the hell, exclusive
provisional covers are everybody's darling anyway, right? so björn
will perform some magic and everything will be finy-fine.

IS FOR KISSES]
12.01.09 - A LITTLE OUTLOOK
it's funny...people around me, let's say my age, they don't like wishing
each other a merry christmas. everybody think's it's lame. i realized
they compensate it by wishing a happy new year ...in quite an old fashioned
way, but i guess that's less lame. well, anyway: happy happy! new
so, what's ahead?:
a) i'm pretty much looking forward to going on tour with
Of Everything, the solo project of Bobby Burg, who otherwiese spends
time playing in bands like Make Believe and Joan Of Arc ("hui!").
that's going to be this may. there are some dates
b) i just finished editing a new album called "fingertier".
it's the outcome of a improvisation session i had in my room some months
go. some pretty raw stuff there, brace yourself! (°_°) it just
needs some nice artwork and then it will be ready for rocket launch. i'm
thinking cd and tape version...
c) + ! my friend Stefan will now be doing some booking
for me. welcome aboard, yo! get in touch with him for shows: stefan
|at| kolleqt.com !
23.12.08 - HOLIDAY HIT SINGLE
here's my little present for your holidays. i found
the key to a perfect christmas song. well, of course first of all it should
be 3 minutes and 30 seconds long (logo). and i reduced the whole thing
vital essence, the one instrument that makes a holiday smash hit. so enjoy:
Ikarus - holiday hit (glöckli2008)
