Okay, I wasn't intending to come back her tonight, but...

WOW

After my greatly anticipated first listen I'm a little shell shocked (in a good way)

The CD kept getting better and better - I thought Big Puzzle was going to be my initial favourite track, but then I got to Monsters & Men and now I'm not so sure.

I'm going to sleep on it and play it again first thing in the morning (lets hope the kids sleep in)

Thanks Nov

kiss


Ha!!! Yes!!! The girls definitely got it bad grin

I smiled when i read your comment about Big Puzzle and Monsters and Men smiley
Both of those were fave tracks of mine at various points on my TFK jouney!
So glad you're falling for them in such a big way Heather, it's great to see smiley

Enjoy kiss

Latest news from Roine!!

Lots of exciting stuff going on here...........


Summer is here - Schools out - ( at least in Sweden)
Thought I'd keep you updated what's cooking in FLOWERKINGS land.

Not much - in terms of gigs or new albums -
but A LOT - in terms of new music and touring.

Tomas Bodin just finished work on his new album "You Are" -
He have TFK oldtimers Marcus Liliequist- drums and Michael Stolt - Bass & Vocal
on it and as usual JJ Marsh doing the guitars.
Keep an eye open for the release - the where and when's will be posted soon on
Tfk website / + here .

My sideproject "Agents Of Mercy" will have it's LIVE premiere on July 10th at the "Night Of The Prog" Loreley Festival in Germany .
The Band consist of -
Me : guitars,vocal & keys
Nad Sylvan -Vocal & Keys
Jonas Reingold -Bass
Lalle Larsson -Piano & Keyboard
Zoltan Cs÷rsz- drums
Inger Ohlen - Vocal & Keyboard.

We're quite excited and a bit scared - it's gonna be great fun - come see us - and be aware you can catch Steve Hackett, Gazpacho, Arena, Riverside etc, on the very same festival.
In September we'll do a short European tour together with Karmakanic - and almost the same lineup will play shows in USA in October - but since Zoltan had other commitments we have hired the multitalented and likewise fabulous Nick D'Virgilio on drums for the USA shows.

(check - www.myspace.com/agentsofmercy )

The "other" little side project "Transatlantic" - latest news is I just finished my work with overdubs 2 days ago and am very excited about that too - it was LOTs of hard work - and it is not always easy to be creative and perhaps a bit daring and still maintain your own distinctive style etc.

Anyway I feel confident saying that ANYONE who loved the 2 first albums will love this one too - plus certain content on that album and LTD will most likely raise a plenty of eyebrows.

OH - and that 3rd side project - namely (possibly) 3rd World Electric -
We're moving ahead and things shape up very nicely.
It is a instrumental fusion, afro, jazz, electronic project by myself and Jonas in the drivers seat(s).
Any lover of 70's Billy Cobham, Weather Report, Return To Forever, George Duke will probably like what we do here.

It's groovy - it's electric - it's melodic - it's timeless.
More details soon.......and btw. we have some really cool hi profile players on it too.

How great does all that sound? smiley



OMG!!! To hear that the Transatlantic stuff is progressing so swiftly is fantastic news, as is all the rest of it cool

They have Nick on drums for the USA AOM gigs!! shocked cool
OMG!!! How cool is that grin

Does this guy ever stop?? Nope, obviously not! laugh
Which is good news for us lot !!!

Did you notice that the Welsh Wonder Woman put in an appearance there? shocked

And we didn't even roll out the red carpet rolleyes

( I was going to say "Welsh Wench" but thought better of it wink)

grin

Great to see you gracing us with your presence young (?!) lady

kiss

(By the way, try saying "Welsh Wench" very fast three times.........you can't can you? grin)

By the way, I'm being a bit lazy and demanding here but would any kind soul please send me a copy of "Agents of Mercy"?

I didn't really liked the singers voice on the clips I've heard and don't want to risk a purchase yet but there have been some encouraging reviews.

Pretty please?

I'm happy to send something in return.

Cheers

Nov

'Yes, miraculous if you ask me!'

'So we didn't encourage her, she took it upon herself to inflict her opinions on us'.

( I was going to say "Welsh Wench" but thought better of it wink)

'I'd have thought better of it, yet still said it...'

'Every word there is accurate, apart from the one beginning with y and ending with oung'

(By the way, try saying "Welsh Wench" very fast three times.........you can't can you? grin)

'I can, actually...' tongue



Personally, I'm wondering just how many times a day our Welsh friend says OMG!!! Does she drop syringes in work, or spill bedpans, and let out the obligatory OMG!!!
Does she dress Hasse's pressure sores, soothe his piles, and mutter to herself all the time OMG!!!
Just wondering.... lipsrsealed

Methinks we should run now Nov...(I'm not going on me own, it's dark out there!) grin

Agreed. An album that was a slow grower for me. Always thought it was good, but it took quite some time to sink it. It'll never make my top three, but it's climbed to a respectable position in my TFK album order, at last. cheesy
