Sin Fang Bous

Hey everyone. Hope you're all well. I havn't entertained you with some blabber in a while, so I thought now is the time!

I've been on holiday in Iceland to visit my family and show my kid to them and such. And of course to try and fully heal after our european tour + Roskilde Festival. So a lot of good food, relaxing and some very fresh air did the trick. It was also quite nice that I could afford to buy some stuff up there. Usually if I wanted to buy a CD up there I'd have to pay double of what I normally do, this time it was half. Natrually because of the very bad shape of the icelandic krona. Bad for the inhabitans, but good for me. So I bought Hjaltalín, Ólafur Arnalds and the amazing 'Sin Fang Bous' who I'm listening to non stop these days. You shold really try to give him a listen: (Oh yeah, we're all about the myspace!). I also bought some seasons of Family Guy and a good deal of 'Brennivín' which is like the icelandic schnaps, also known as 'The Black Death'. It's gorgeous.

Although I was supposed to relax and bath in the hot springs and stuff, I did a little work on a small UK tour in October. I'd love to tell you about the gigs, but I'm gonna wait till everything is confirmed. I'll announce it shortly though. Oh, and the London gig in August is cancelled, I'm afraid. The promoters kinda changed the conditions all of a sudden. So the 14th is on in Brighton again at The Freebutt. Sorry London-people.

Gert and I will be at Kenns place to listen to our recordings, record some backing vocals and mix a little bit. I can't wait to get started working on the record again. Good times.

Hello world!

Aahh.. Nice.. One week of normal-ness. Gert and I just got back from Roskilde Festival which was amazing. The sun shined the whole time (except at night) and you couldn't sleep longer than 7:30 because you would look like a meal in a tent. And that's not good at all! How are you gonna get girls if you look like a meal?

Seriously though the festival was lots of fun. The highlights for me were Nick Cave, Mono, The Dodos aaaaaaaaannd.... Slipknot! Well, maybe not them.. But it was fun and I was drunk, sooo..

It's really nice to be home, that's for sure! I'm here for a week and then I take of to Iceland for a week with my girls to visit the family there. Sweet. Lasse just went to the states this morning, and will be travelling there for a month. Lucky bastard!

So it's pretty much summer vacation in the Mimas camp. Yet, I'm sitting here posting on this blog, replying e-mails and sorting out gigs. And speaking of gigs, do you live in London? We'll be playing there on the 14th of August at The Cross Kings. Hope to see you there? There is also a rumour that we might be playing in Norwich in October..

Well, I'm just home from tour but still I can't wait to go on tour again. It's probably all the lack of sleep and long drives that are totally appealing to me right now..

Speak soon boys and girls!
