Although we seem to have not been very active recently, Petter and I haven't done nothing in the last months.
A little while ago we did a private gig in Rotterdam, and most of the times we did sessions together in my studio.
Many, many hours of material has been recorded, so it is be likely that we will do something with parts of it in near future.
For upcoming concerts we invited some friends / fellow musicians. Both gigs will be completely different from each other, so if you consider to come to see us, please think twice before making your decision which one you will attend. Or maybe combine both!
|Acid Mothers Temple.|
We will be playing as support act for Japanese space-gaze band Acid Mothers Temple.
For this opportunity we invited Tristan, aka Lama Waaien.
Tristan and I already played together a couple of years ago during one of the first editions of "Pletterij Impro Sessies".
Petter and I wanted to add some more low (by means of frequencies) to our music.
So, when thinking about an improvising bass player, I instantly came up with Tristan.
When we talked about a try-out for this show, we were warmly welcomed by Arno to perform at the Pletterij again.
Mäläskä also performed here with the "Uncle Jim's Cidney Factory" album presentation, back in 2016.
Because we will do a full show at the Pletterij on Monday October 22nd, we decided to do this as following:
Petter, Tristan and I will kick off with a try-out for the Patronaat gig. This first part is aimed to take approximately 30-40 minutes.
Then, after a break and some stage adjustments, we will come back with a second part.
Also inviting Bas Broekhuis (Broekhuis, Keller & Schönwälder) on percussion and vocalist Joost Verhagen (Grey Lotus) on stage.
We have never rehearsed or played together with this line-up, so on the day of the concert we are trying to find out if this is going to work. Really exciting.
In the case things work out positively, it might theoretically affect the Patronaat's line-up.
