The Whiskey Sessions started when three old (by this point) musicians met to get reacquianted and drink som whiskey. The whole think quickly turned into a recurring even about booze, music, and on-the-spot creativity. We get together, pop the cork, and get cracking on writing a song. The goal is to compose, write lyrics, perform and record an entire song in a single evening, preferably before the neighbors start banging on the wall or the audio interface burns up.

We often mix and master when we've had a chance to sober up, but we are proud to challenge ourselves to achieve all of this in a short period of time. And it's a lot of fun too......

Needle In The Haystack.mp3 (mix: johno)

+lyrics

Mad and johno tried an outing with people from outside the usual crew. We went to Askim and visited Per. Also visiting were Therese and Jay. We wrote a country song under the influence of large amounts of alcohol.

Jay contributed a lot of the country feel and the acoustic guitar performance. Per played bass, johno was the engineer and electric guitarist and together they nailed some solid harmonies. This was Mad's country debut, courtesy of vanilla vodka. Therese offered general moral support for the morally retarded.
