UPCOMING AND SOLID GONE CONCERTS

We are alive and thriving this summer. Two nigts ago we played one cramped club and it was pretty packed ! Hysteria, combined with dancing, shouting and generally loving vibes occurred. Great for our health, musically heartwise and financially.
Sunday 19th we will play on the "Kleppeloen Kultur" festival. Look it up and ready your car, bike, feet or public transport.
Then on the 29th of june we play at "Extremsportveko" in Voss. One of the most beautiful landscapes in our beautiful country. Hanggliders all over our heads and skaters, kiters, daredevils and assorted weirdness to nourish our senses. Like science fiction come alive. Join us.

ALBUM DUE

Rubberheads of the world, some news coming up. We have spent this spring finishing our album. It will be releaded in autumn and will probably bear the festive name "Tongues Of The Moon".
We have recorded it pretty much live in the studio and we are proud of our playing. The plan is in work and this includes the vinyl pressing, which we would love to see on two 12" singles. Time and purse will tell.
Titles of songs are like "Full Freezing Moon", "Dancing Darkness", "Left For Dead" and other assorted happy tunes. :-) Save up for the occassion.

XMAS CONCERTING
So this is Xmas, and what will you do ?
Another year over and soon wishes come true.
The Rubs are playing, songs with a beat,
and if you show up, it's good for your feet.
Cementen is the venue, show up or be lost,
amongst bills and duties, less pleasure than cost.
18th of december, the night will glow hot.
In the midst of winter you'll be right on the spot.

MAGIC MOODS

September 12th we will play some Tunes& Rhythms at Folken. The evening is a celebration of this legendary venue and their reopening after some heavy duty facelifting on the interior front. We hope the atmosphere doesn't get to modern to stimulate some serious magic moods.....smile emoticon

AFTERMATH

After a festive concert at Lydbølger we have all been vacationing. Soon we'll start rehearsing some new music for further public appearances and recording. Searching inside and being stimulated from outside is the two main directions of inspiration. It is like doing strange dreams while being awake. Hope you enjoy what will be shared. As for our friends from Tunisia, be welcome in spirit and who knows, maybe in the flesh, some day.

LYDBØLGER-16th OF JULY. JOIN UP, OR SURF ALONE !

As earlier mentioned, we will perform our musical magic on the sixteenth of july. Lydbølger is the best kind of festival ever. Situated by the North Sea with endlesss beaches, waves galore and music into the night. Tents, trailers and cottages make up a homely and friendly camp and all over there is all kinds of activity, surfing, kiting, hanggliding, yoga, reasoning and relating. We have some new tunes for the occasion and we aim to make people dance, feel and think simultaneously. Be there, you should..........

WE PRESENT: NEW DRUMMERMAN

This spring has seen an important change in our line up. Gaute Risa, a long time friend of us has been persuaded to join, at last. Gaute is such a versatile and playful drummer that the vibe and groove of our music has been lifted to satori-level, that is; two inches up from groundlevel yet grounded. Your chance to watch us and enjoy the machinery of our engineroom playing from Arne Jakob Hidle's bass and Gaute's drummery, will be on july 16th, at Lydbølger Festival. Join up or surf alone.......

CEMENTEN

Tomorrow we gather upon the stage at the venue CEMENTEN. Having rehearsed some new songs, we look forward to playing before an audience of eager listeners and keen dancers. These new songs go further down the dark lane of dystopic tales, psychodramatic romance and danceable rhythms. Be brave, show up.

Concerts galore

New performances on the go. First up is one at Folken, our local and legendary venue in the centre of Stavanger. This is where we released our first album in 1999, and do we indeed remember that one with fondness! We partied as if it was....1999.
This one involves no new record, but new songs we promise. "Better Days" has already become an internal favourite among bandmembers and others push their way to our own top ten.
Lydbølger so enjoyed our last performance that they have hired us for this one too. That means a crowd of joyful, active people. Surfers, kiters, hikers, experience-seekers and generally vital and optimistic people.
In short: OUR KIND OF PEOPLE.
The date is friday 7th of november and you are welcomed to join us and the welcoming crowd.
Yours DonW
