First Ever Live Show

We are LATE with the new version of the site (scheduled for next Wednesday), due to flu and all that. Sorry about this, but it will be published very very soon. In the meantime, here’s a little something on their first ever live show…

“I don’t know how it happened exactly, but we got this gig at a club called Backfisch, that mostly had death metal bands playing. The club doesn’t exist anymore, but I think the sign is still hanging there, the word spelled out with illustrated skeleton of fish.

The support band was called Autobaby, and I don’t think they exist anymore. There was about 50 people in attendance, maybe less, one of them a guy called Jim Holm, who worked at a booking agency called Infrarouge (I think… something like that…) and he liked us and signed us on, and started booking shows for us at slightly more established clubs. Later on he became A&R at Exlibris, a Danish language only label, who in the mid-nineties suddenly decided to expand their field a bit. So that’s basically why they ended up releasing A Triumph For Man.

Anyway, I don’t remember much about the show, except being super nervous. We probably played a few of the songs that ended up on Triumph, probably Panda and Wherever and maybe Wheels and Web. But certainly also a bunch that were never released. And probably shouldn’t be, haha.

We had a flutist play with us at that show, a girl called Hannah Heilmann, who is now an artist, working with performance and visual art. We didn’t invite many of our friends, because we were nervous I guess, haha. That’s all I can remember, I think.”
