New York, October 31, 2012
This track was planned as a Halloween Special for our show at Mercury Lounge NYC October 31.
But then SANDY happened - hands down a superstorm that turned everything upside down.
So, right now downtown Manhattan... no electricity, no show. Hope you are all doing ok out there, and that we can all meet at Mercury Lounge for the planned MARATHON set when the dear city is back on track.
Meanwhile Brooklyn Bowl invited us to come over there and play a set in the opening spot for Big Freedia ;-)
Everybody seem to be helping each other out.
Well, here is the new track for free download - enjoy!
(Please note - this track was made long before the storm happened, and any possible relation to the sad events of the last days is absolutely random and unintended. Hope you are safe and sound out there).
And of course, also make sure to check out the remix by Listening Center aka. David Mason. One of our favorite drummers, producers, composers and friends!.
