I quit Arktika in 2010 and, although we never officially announced our disbandment,  amodestproposal played their last show in 2009. And ever since that time, not counting one very brief stay in Mannheim, I have not picked up my instrument again. Things happen and it just wasn’t meant to be, it seems. Do I miss it? Not really, at least not on a constant basis. It’s not that I feel bad about things. But in flashes, in short moments, the urge to pick up my bass and play some patterns and chords, returns. Those short flashes usually come from a record I’ve been listening to. Or maybe a movie I’ve been watching. Both happened it the past few weeks. (more…)

It’s always a strange feeling when somebody passes away. It’s terrible, when it’s a person close to you. It’s kind of weird, when it’s someone you only knew through records or as a performer on stage. Yesterday evening I stumbled across a terrifying tweet by Fat Mike of No FX, which was followed by another one by Fat Wreck Chords verifying the terrible news that Tony Sly, lead vocalist and guitarist of No Use For A Name and solo artist, had died.

Sometimes it’s kind of astonishing how I end up finding out about records. In this case I read about this band in a german newspaper, but what kept me reading wasn’t the review of their records but the fact that they have links to a restaurant in Munich which serves a mixture of japanese and bavarian food.

I have to admit I just can’t find the time to endulge into music as I used to be maybe 2-3 years ago. This might have several reasons, the main one being that I now have a steady job and because of my work schedule I’m just too exhausted to put too much energy into following who put what record out and who’s on tour and what’s hot and what’s not. But every now and then there’s things that I come across and I know I have to get my hands on that one particular record. I might not think so right from the start, but the more I read about it, the more interested I get. You might as well call me victim of advertisments. (more…)
