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......

Mad had a bunch of inspirational songs from the 50s and 60s. Adam was drinking from some weird bottle in a brown paper compost bag. johno was wearing a very dirty shirt. Peen was the engineer.

Maria wrote some lyrics and Jonas did camera duty. The goal was to get a really compact vocal harmony and a nice boogie / swing feeling. We have no idea what the title of the song actually means, but it sounded good. But Limpan has an Amazon with racing stripes and is headed downtown...
