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......

At this point a pick-up session was absolutely required. We had two songs that weren't finished and another that wasn't cut nor mixed.

We went to Peen's and forced him to finalize the cut of Big Mama Blues and then we continued with the unfinished songs. Jonas and Maria were sympathetically partying in Malmö where they had moved, with Maria calling a few times to make sure we were making progress. Mad was sick but both wrote lyrics and sang regardless.

Adam was sober for some reason (preggers?) but entertained us all with his laughter, his vocals and the Holy Bible!? that was our last resort for lyrical inspiration for In the Night. Awesome!

johno improvised a workstation on a box and managed to work in spite of all the Ouzo consumed. Without Jonas and his camera we had to improvise. What to do in the future?
