Three elder small-town boys with some growth rings (at least around their eyes;-) and instruments that sometimes creaks and bitches, in other words, a little rotten, have formed a trio of rhythm machine with percussion, bass guitar and keyboard instruments since autumn 2021. In german we are called, „morsch“
Behind them are Gabriel Gmür, Andreas Penkov and Frank Will as established and ambitious artists and musicians residing in the city of Schaffhausen (CH).
Schaffhausen is geographically located on the northern edge of Switzerland and is (as is well known) "an illusion, if you turn around it's gone". This is a quote from lyrics and one of our musical reference and starting points from the much appreciated "GUZ" aka Oliver Maurmann (another small town boy), who unfortunately died much too early. The song "sensibel" intersects two texts by Maurmann and reinterprets them musically. “there is no return”, the eponymous opener tells of everyday dissonances and impending dystopias, which do not mean retreat, but departure. Our answer: "we say yes to the modern world" and bow to a favorite song by F.S.K from munich and thank Thomas Meinecke for using the text. "(you made me ) sick" is our walk of hate against all the influencers' noses, in other words, shitty self-optimization capitalism, but that just doesn't swing that well as a line of text. "lonely" is inspired by the lyrics of "hüsker du song xy". "I'm sick" is our bouncer, lyrically it can be understood as covid-19 blues. Musically, the recording is a first-take piece, which characterizes the previous working method, which was determined by joint improvisation. The starting point can be a rhythm or a repetitive harmony sequence. Electric bass guitar, e-piano and other sounds and effects form a harmonic framework, which is condensed into an arrangement. Between expectation and distinction, we are happy to release by Ikarusecords, our first six-piece album „no return“, that is only digital available. From autumn 2023 we will be ready for the stage, see below for inquiries.
