November 10th/11th

all tracks properly defined and recorded. a little magic mixing and mastering and there you go suckers: the second album will be out in less than a month. we’re thrilled, you ain’t. you should, though.


BACK TO WORK

the band started yesterday rehearsing seven new songs, five of which will be recorded in november for “traurige wehinach”, the follow up to “meat the fuck yous” scheduled to be released around christmas. numbers rehearsed included “2nd of december”, “maggie said” and a new 4 minute track tentatively titled “the white”. autumn shows to be announced soon. stay tuned. 


piling them all up

Two new songs

two more songs will receive they’re first joint band performance tonight. one’s called 1st thing in the morning, the other maggie said. now, no one knows whether they’re gonna make it on the forthcoming traurige weihnacht album. the FUS do have 27 songs to chose from to get to the standard 36-40 minutes of music an album should time at but – as sk_8 says – livefast has a gift for writing a lot a crap, it’s safety in numbers that saves him. one thing the band recently discovered is that they like doing studio work even more than they like playing live. in order to offer a live performance up to the band’s expectations, you need a certain level of setup, including a cool sound system, a great sound engineer, efficient roadies, a venue full of people, expensive gear and all that. these are all things that cost money and nobody is willing to invest money in the FUs right now. so the idea is, let’s make a second album which will rock the fuck out of any listener’s brain and then let’s start touring for real, supported by a real promoter. not that the plan has any chance of success, but that’s exactly what’s nice about plans: if they fail, you can always come up with new ones.

Record two actually kinda happening

so we did it. we locked ourselves up in a studio with a shitload of gear, a cool sound engineer and a bunch of songs. it went surprisingly well. five and half tracks done, four and a half or maybe five and a half to go before we can release the much awaited Christmas Record of the unfathomable Fuck Yous. in the picture, Molecole thinking Livefast’s guitar volume should be turned way down.
