Back to Smelly

The rehearsing for the gig April 13th at Huset Magstræde is on. The location is Smelly in the north west corner of Copenhagen – the infamous basement  that leaves an equally  infamous smell to your clothes and your hair. Mmmmm… dead guinea pig with a touch of blue cheese and very old playing cards.

It’s a trainers park at Smelly. I’m sporting my Nike, Kristian is in Vans and Korff in Converse.

Turn up the click track for Mr. Korff.

Kristian is either: 1. buying in more guitars on ebay or 2. fixing back tracks.

“This is not a girl’s guitar”

… and that would be a Les Paul to be exact. Indeed a heavy infiltration creator with a testosterone loaded sound. Perfect for the rat suit vibe as long as the girl doesn’t have to play it! Aaron did an amazing job nailing the tracks and I’m thrilled with the sound of the guitar.

Knobs of the finest kind…

We recorded the guitar at Mark Plati’s cool and comfy studio in the East Village. It has such a nice vibe and being there feels like hanging out at a very good friends house. It was pure Danish hygge discussing subjects such as music, Danish pork, music and music in between recording.

You know you’re with geeks when your iPhone accidentally plays 0,5 seconds of a song in your iTunes library. Mario: Was that Morrisey? Aaron: The Smiths? Spot on boys…

Aaron’s custom made brown brick of awesomeness.

Be sure to check out Aarons band The Madison Square Gardeners. They are playing in Brooklyn at the Rock Shop February 24th so I get a change to see them live while I’m here – weeeee! They have an EP and a loaded tour calendar including SXSW coming up.
