Welcome to the Scandinavian Cyber-Posten!
The Scandinavian Cyber-Posten is my blog for the band. Ever since I started reading The Machine's Pump on the Brave Combo website I've wanted my own blog. After all, I'm a creative and intelligent person and I have thoughts on a lot of things. Here's a place where you can read what I think about a variety of topics. I hope you enjoy what you read. If you have any feedback on what I've written, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Greetings, Scandinavian Fans!--------------------
The most common question I have been getting lately is "When are you going to get the new album done?" The short, flippant answer is "I'll get it done as soon as I can." The detailed, more accurate answer is as follows...
Back in November 2009 I talked to the guys in the band about the possibility of going into the studio the following January to start a new recording. They blocked out the time in their schedules and we set a date to start recording. We got the rhythm tracks done in a couple weeks. After that things started to get challenging.
The week after we finished the rhythm tracks I was in an auto accident. I was fine but my vehicle was totaled. A month after that the pump in my well died and required replacement. The following week my grandfather became very ill. Later in the year we had a mechanically-challenged trip to Kimberley, BC for a performance at the Accordion Celebration.
One by one, the problems kept coming. We were able to get a little bit of work done here and there but it's still only about half done. It's now 2013 and we're more than three years into this recording. Hopefully this summer we will have the time to finish up the recording and turn it over to David Conley for mixing and mastering. We still need to do all the lead tracks like accordion, clarinet, and sax. We also need to do the vocals. I promise that my wife will be singing a few songs on this recording.
I'll keep you all posted on how this progresses. It has been slow but I hope that the relaxed pace will produce an excellent recording.
