15.10.01: The gig at Café Stjernesalen (Det Akademiske Kvarter, Feber-festivalen) was one of our best conserts ever! The setting was good, and the songs are really starting to come alive when we play. Good response from the audience too. It's gigs like these that makes us smile for days.

The response was very good this time also, and playing the same night as contemporary composers Andreas Meland (computer cut-up music), Nils Økland (Harding fiddle)and Ole Henrik Mohn (Harding fiddle) was an honour for us. Andreas played two remixes of our song Even out the curves. We loved them both. All the people at Safe as milk, especially Kristian and Andreas, are incredibly nice people doing important things for the Norwegian underground scene. It looks like we are going to play at Uka in Trondhem sometime between 11-14 of october. Cool!

03.07.01: We are doing all we can to promote ourselves so that we can play a lot this autumn. It takes a lot of hard work and many phonecalls every day. Playing gigs are the main focus for us now. People are starting to get interested in our music, and I hope we will play many gigs in the comming months. Musically we are also getting more and more focused. We know now that it is not a smart move to play all sort of styles. It is more fun to do what we do best. The songs we are playing now are melodic, slow and beautiful, but also with some nasty guitars!

10.05.01: We are looking foreward to play at the Safe as Milk-festival in Haugesund 28.07.01. The quest quartet will share the bill with Jazzkammer, Ring, Lasse Marhaug among others. In the first week of august we will probably also play a gig at Blå in Oslo. This is a gig booked by Andreas Meland from Safe as Milk, sort of a party after the festival. I am currently trying to book us some dates this autumn in Stavanger, Kristiansand, Bø, Oslo, Bergen and Haugesund.

25:03.01: Home received very good reviws in the local newspapers here in Bergen. It seems like our new musical direction is the right way to go.
