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......

Love Removal Machine.mp3

Vi samlades hos Mad o johno runt en l�t som de gjort nyligen i Ableton Live. L�ten saknade s�ngmelodi och text. Vi sp�nade p� ord och texten blev tillslut s� k�nslig att inspelningen fick v�nta tills dagen efter f�r att inte f�rst�ra festst�mmningen.... Mad sjunger o johno l�gger st�mmor. Adam �r en �nglak�r. L�ten beh�ver ett nytt namn som passar... F�rslag?

Bonus fr�n denna kv�ll �r en improviserad version av The Cult klassikern Love Removal Machine featuring Adam och johno.
