New Mimas member

Hey guys and girls.

Friday morning and I had just turned on the computer. My phone is right next to me (ofcourse) and all of a sudden the beep that signals an incoming text message is heard. Expecting it to be a notification that my mobile account is in minus I was pleasantly surprised when I read the message. It went:

" I am now the father of the most beautiful little girl"

I guess some of you can guess where it came from.

The new Sigur Rós track!


Well. In 2000 my dad, Albert, introduced to Sigur Rós' Ágætis Byrjun. An album that completely changed everything in music. And if you ask me, one of the best albums ever recorded. We went to their Airwaves gig in Iceland in 2001 and it was mind-blowing! Back then they didn't tour with Amina, so it was only the four of them on stage. Now, after seeing them playing 7 different concerts, they have only grown stronger and stronger, and Sigur Rós have also gained an audience they fully deserve. Over the last couple of years they've been recycling a lot of their material. If you ask me '( )' and 'Takk...' have some great songs, but also a few 'not that good..'. In my opinion!

Thats why Sigur Rós' new single gobbledigook is so great. You can still hear it sounds very much like Sigur Rós, but they've taking a very different direction. That direction suits them well, I love the new single. Download it here!

Three cheers for the fellow Icelanders.

You're probably bored on Wedensday.

Come to musikcaféen in Århus and see us (we are mimas) supporting Jeniferever. It will be great fun, and we'll get drunk afterwards and kick your ass in foosball. Don't believe me? Come see for yourselves.

The picture is of the amazing Jeniferever. Listen to them here!

Oh yes! The tour... I forgot!

Guys, sorry.

I forgot to tell you a bit about the tour! Up for it? No? Well, I don't care!

It was a great trip. Although we had some shows cancelled at the last minute. Instead of one show we got offered another in London at a venue called Bedford Park. And it was interesting! We talked our good friends Lakes into doing it with us! And as always they were awesome! Jamie their lead singer drank a whole bottle of rum during that night, and was very rock! Love him. We played our set and it was rather cool. Everyone, including us, enjoyed themselves! The beautiful Edd from the amazing Prego showed up and we stayed at his place, as always when in London. We love that man.

Next morning we had some great English Breakfast and drove to Oxford to play at The Cellar for the 3rd time. We played with the amazing This Town Needs Guns, who are on the equally amazing label Big Scary Monsters Records
. We had a very enthusiastic crowd, and handed out many free CD's and soled some T-shirts. As always the sound was amazing, we owe that to our friend Jimmy, who put us on. He is also putting us on at the cellar for the 4th time on September 4th! Be sure to be there! We also stayed at Jimmys and his wives place. Or I slepped in the car. I'm allergic to cats and dogs (and horses). But thanks anyway Jimmy!

Next morning we left Oxford 10.30 am. We were supposed to be in Bury st. Edmunds for a live recording session at Old School Studios with our friend Jason (Listen to it here at Breakthru radio). Guess what, we we're stuck in traffic for six hours!!! What the fuck!? I've never seen anything like that. The line of cars was just so long.. incredible sight. And some very boring hours! Jason was very cool about it though, and we did the session when we arrived at 8 pm (Yes, it took us nine and a half hours to drive from Oxford to Bury...) Look at these amazing pics from the studio!

We finished the session at 1 am and then drove to Norwich to visit our good friend Annie Catwoman. It was preety late but it didn't keep Annie to get some beers out of the fridge and a bottle of whiskey (on my request). We drank it, had fun and went to sleep. The next morning we got up and went into the center of beautiful city of Norwich and this is how our manager looks like:

At the local diner we had, of course, English breakfast! I think it was our 3rd time there, so they are getting to know us. As always Gert and I orderes the Super Deluxe which always kills us:

After dying and resurrecting we walked around Norwich with Annie and saw the amazing cathedrals. Stunning. Unfortunately we had to leave Annie, Oscar (her cat) and Norwich as we had a date with Edd Simpson and his girlfriends Debbie from Drowned in Sound in London. The night was amazing and we got very drunk. Daniel got lost in a park somewhere in London and slepped on a bench, spooning the homeless, and Lasse fell asleep on the way home to Edd. Fortunatly no one got hurt. Hoorray!

Other than this, I don't have much to say.

See you in September.

Thanks to all the guys and girls who listened to our gig when we supported why? this wedensday. We had a very, very good time! And also a big thank you to why? for being such a nice bunch of people. Hopefully this won't be the last time we're supporting them.

By the way, on our way home we ran out of gas! So Gert and I had to walk to the nearest gas station to get gas! It took an extra hour, so we were preety tired when we got home at 4 am in the morning.. But hey, it was worth it!

Love to you all, and all for love...... (?)

Cherie-a, Cherie-e, Cherie-i Cherie-o, Cherie-uuuu!

Boys and ladies!

Mimas will support Why? at Loppen in Copenhagen this Wedensday (May 14th). This is probably my favorit band, and if you don't know them, you should seriously check this group out! Their Elephant Eylash record and the new Alopecia record are mind-blowing.

Click on the following why? quote to go to their myspace:

jerking off in an art museum john till my dick hurts
the kind of shit i won't admit to my head shrinker
not even in a whisper to my own little sister
i just act like a dick and talk shit when i'm with her


Mr. Roommate live?

54 minutes in...
