This is a collection of songs and sketches that either never got past the state of being poorly recorded or that were demo versions Volker made for the band to get an idea of what to do with the new material.
1. Fondling & Biting
Recorded in 2008 with the worst microphone i ever used.
Recorded in Estonia 2013 while writing the songs for our album "pale noise". We even took this one to the studio but it never made the cut into the final album.
3. Who am i alive for
That one was too depressing to be released. I wrote it for "witness me pass out" in 2011.
4. When my fingers are thunder
Must have been in 2007. Myspace was big back then, i wrote and recorded about 3-5 songs a week and uploaded them in a cathegory named "lofi of the week". I lost all the other songs when a hard drive died, no idea how i still got this one.
5. You leave
I recorded this one probably around springtime in 2012.
6. Funny soul / happy heart
While rehearsing a session for "they shoot music don't they" in 2012 we were goofing around on fragile soul / heavy heart. See how cheerful we can be?
7. That & this & everything repeats
This was a demo i made. The actual song ended up on "a cloud, pushed & squeezed". There is a video of this one on youtube as well, it shows how young we were back then....
8. Uncover its roots
Another demo i recorded to show it to the band. I remember sometimes i recorded a song before we got in the van to go play a show somewhere. On the road we listened to those demos discussing what to do with them.
This song never made it any further than to being a sketch. Still i used the lyrics and made grey formations out of it.
10. Invisible to you
In late december of 2011 i made this one for us to have a sad song we could dance to at a new years party.
