"here back in Buenos Aires

after more than three months touring...

so nice to slow down and relax a bit."

Those were the first words coming from an email from Anla after

another long tour around Europe but there had been many other tours.

Day 10. After a long train delay in Mannheim we were confused and

exhausted and not remembering where the next destination would be.

Mannheim had only offered a hard floor as bed and no sheets, and this

is in the middle of winter time.

Of course this experience gave us the idea that we should or more

precisely MOST do a record together which concept would be:

Travelling. Like an audio travel guide. Plus we are all big fans of

the Travelling Wilburys.

We thought this idea to be one of the best one on this tour so far. In

the train we were listening to Future Days by CAN.

Day 4. Moving backwards a bit here. We caught Anla working on

recordings in his hotel room. This was in Stockholm and one of the

better paid gigs, with hotel rooms for all of us.

Anla was interested in the sound coming from the heater in the bathroom.

So he started recording it´s sound using a dictaphone. It sounded really

interesting and was made into a long fade at the nights gig in


That same sound you can hear on the record.

Day 6: Copenhagen: Here traditional town flavors, located bookstores

can be found all around. Beer capital town some might say. Weather was

not on our side and the trip took close to 12 hours but was all worth


I think it was Siggi saying something along the lines of: "Expensive

but worth it!"

Helgi also remembering that time in the late 90s when touring with

Reynols. Back then we did gigs with small card paper boxes as main

sound source.

Day 8: The Keukenhof Gardens, Leiden, Holland. We decided to invite

some local musicians to the bar, as we had a few days off we took

advantage of doing a few outtakes. Some of it appears on this record

but we can't tell you where as the track listing got mixed-up by the

recording engineers.
