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......

Giftig Spindel.mp3 (mix: johno)

+lyrics

The brilliant premise was to write something along the lines of E-Type. Per Stenbeck joined us for a bit until he tired of us and left. Peen was home sick. johno was also sick but joined anyway. A new addition to the gang was the new kitten that alternated between sleep and general mayhem. In order to get some kind of vocal track Adam employed his usual trick of just improvising from a book.

This time the song was about phtography and the first verse is pretty much straight from the book. It wasn't very interesting, but we got some good tracks and melodies but no real chorus and no good vocal takes. We decided to save it for future use at Mad's insistence. During uppsamlingsheatet we finished it.
