Week three

Mon 10/2

I overslept and missed the train, nice professional work.Shit. Well I'll guess my apology was accepted. It was only me, Tommy & Make at the rehearsals anyway. Jani was sick and Tony did some recording at Tico-Tico for the European version of the best of collection. I spent the evening checking the Band of Brothers-dvd stuff and go through a couple of episodes, which I'm sure you're all very happy to hear. Actually I could tell a little bit about the keys for this album for those of you who are into techtalk. In addition to the usual pile that me & Tony use (that would be some Kurzweils: K2000, K2500 & K2600XS and Korgs: Karma & Triton) I got a Clavia G2 and the Roland JV2080 I used on tour, however I don't know how much we'll use them. I'm also gonna try to play at least part of the organs with my friend's Hammond C-3.....we'll see about that. The fun in using a real hammond is that I'll have to play all the stuff a half step down 'cause we use a Eb tuning normally. Ok, enough jibberish.

Tue 10/3

Today was probably the laziest day ever, or at least the most unproductive one. Inspite of this we listened to a couple of new songs from Tony, and we'll start to work on them tomorrow. After the rehersals I went over to Make's place with my laptop and the whole evening was spent playing poker online. Nerdy bastards :) We both did however win some cash as well so it's a pretty fun hobby. Some sauna back at the cottage, and the day was done. Nigthy night.

Wed 10/4

Woke up feeling a bit of the flu coming on, seems it's my turn now. The day pretty much went by in a haze and I went to bed straight after the rehersals. I was pretty much knocked out until the next morning.

Thu 10/5

Still feeling like shit, fortunately Make brought some cough medicine etc. so during the day I started to feel a bit better :) We went over to Jani's house in the afternoon to have a short meeting. Later on me & Make dropped by a friend of ours to discuss some poker & gambling issues. I picked up a couple of movies before heading back into the woods. We only have two weeks left of the rehersals so we'll probably pick up the pace in order to get everything ready before the studio starts. Time to rest & get well.

Fri 10/6

The weekend is coming on and I'm almost out of the flu. Our drum tech Tapsa drops by during the day and we play him some of the new songs. All day goes by in the same fashion as the rest of the days this week, which is not good. This weekend hopefully gets us all rested because we can't afford to "lose" another week like this = we didn't get enough done this week. In fact we hardly got anything done. Next week I'll have to record some more keyboard tracks to a couple of songs we've been recording for the European best of album. I'll probably record some of the stuff at the rehearsal camp and maybe go over to Tony's house and play some stuff there with him. Whatever, we'll see, it's time to head on home. Yo!

Achtung, ein konzert,
