Uusi EP "Humble Machine" pihalle 24.5.2017!

Electric Monk - Humble Machine EP

A year passes like nothing, but here we are: We're finally releasing the last songs we wrote with Ville! The three-song EP "Humble Machine" will be released digitally on Wednesday 24 May 2017. We will hold a record release party on Friday 26 May at Elmun Baari, Nosturi with magnificent punk orchestra from Kallio: God Given Ass. We will release the EP's opening song "Electric Monk" as a YouTube single a week earlier on Friday 19 May 2017.

The EP "Humble Machine" consists of three songs: The opening song "Electric Monk" is a cynical tribute to Douglas Adams that travels from funky verses to psychedelic middle part. The second song "Brother" is dedicated to our late trombone player Ville Nissinen. The EP's last song's ("Big Bang Boom Boom") name and riffs are our homage to John Lee Hooker.

Me ollaan vihdoinkin saamassa julkaistuksi viimeisiä Villen kanssa tehtyjä kappaleita! Kolmen biisin EP "Humble Machine" ilmestyy digipalveluihin ke 24.5.2017. Saman viikon perjantaina 26.5. ollaan keikalla Elmun Baarissa Nosturin alakerrassa kalliopunk-orkan God Given Ass:n kanssa. Esimakuna laitetaan jakoon YouTubeen jo viikkoa aikaisemmin eli 19.5.2017 EP:n aloittava "Electric Monk"-biisi.

"Humble Machine"-EP sisältää kolme rallia: Levyn aloittava bändin uusi nimibiisi "Electric Monk" on funkin kautta psykedeelisille poluille päätyvä kyyninen kunnianosoitus kulttikirjailija Douglas Adamsille. Toinen kappale "Brother" on omistettu syksyllä 2014 menehtyneelle pasunistillemme Ville Nissiselle. EP:n päättävä "Big Bang Boom Boom" taas nostaa hattua John Lee Hookerille niin nimensä kuin riffiensäkin puolesta. Näin on pöytä tyhjennetty vanhoista biiseistä, ja uusien kynäily pääsee kunnolla käyntiin.
