we waren zo lekker muziek aan het maken dat we een beetje vergaten de website bij te houden. Dus bij deze. en om het goed te maken een paar lekkere stukjes om te lezen. ze gaan bijvoorbeeld over ons nieuwste telgje Monkey Pop.
oh yes. its been a while. you did not see us, but we saw you.
we haven’t been gone, we just locked ourself in a cold stinky windowless room and recorded.
but we’re back. to play our 100th show. some might have changed a bit though! yesyes.
It’s not like we’re doing nothing. We participated in Luifabriek‘s modern society with a man called Tjeerd. “Lost Bear is an oiled machine” he sais. “they are freaking awesome” he sais also. anyway; There is a little something to listen and a little something to read. You better get started cuz it’s quite the trip.Three hours of heart onto one tape.
Serving suggestion: Beer in a can and a microwave-meal.
Time has passed and time has wasted.
A long time since we set foot on this online medium.
We have been doing nothing. Spent some time on nothing and wasted some nothing.
As for now and recent time spent we have been and are quite busy.
As you can see in the picture below a lot of precious cassette tape has been abused for our musical endeavours.
Tapes and songs, spazzy attempts of creativity and experiment, psychedelic outbursts, pop explosions and folk implosions.
Heaps of em. Piling up. Heaps and heaps. Big fat heaps. This just might become something worth waiting for.
Something close to a magnum opus. Something nearly awesome. Maybe even pleasant.
A double album, a triple cd, god knows it might even be a whole box set or never get finished at all.
All we know is it is costing a damn lot of tape, a freaking shit load of time, millions of gallons of beer, bits and pieces of our mental
health and don’t get us started on the brittleness of them 4-tracks.
Anyway, be patient and safe some money.
One year ago we released our record Shingolai on transparent vinyl. After that, we started writing a concept double album. 20 songs later, one of the drummers (Tammo Kersbergen, also the producer) split ways with the band. And when Tammo left, he took his hi-fi gear with him…
We decided to throw all the songs overboard and started writing/recording new stuff on 4-track cassette recorders. As a result of this, a full length album will be finished somewhere 2014. For now it’s also possible to listen to 4 of the new recordings on an ‘album preview’ called Baboon Deluxe:
A limited edition of 50 was released on Shaky Maracas last friday, while we were supporting Sebadoh. On the Bandcamp page you can also read the lyrics. Behold Lost Bear 2.0!
