Just so you know why there has not been any update for a while: Jackie and I were asked to play a 20 to 40 minutes set on a Wednesday night in September with some friends in a bar. We think we could be playing these songs without too much hassle:
I was told that there would be a full drum set and amplifiers for bass and guitar. As we are but two people, I will play the Grand Stick to fill the spots of both guitarist and bass player while singing. Jackie has to get back into drumming within in the next few days, so I will be busy with tutoring her a little.
“Caveman” is not a full song yet. Once intended to be the second part of my opus magnum, writing stalled when I stopped actively working on the whole thing. About three years ago I made a short demo recording of it in Berlin. The lyrics have changed since, but are still incomplete. I will have to take some time to flesh it out and turn it into a real song.
Last Wednesday I failed at recording 天使 for various reasons. For one the fear to disturb the sleeping neighbours—they go to bed at eight in the evening—was very inhibiting to my singing; on top of that sleep deprivation attributed to rather sloppy playing. I also stared into the camera to often, which made for disturbing footage. I am going to venture another attempt tonight.
