Been working as a production sound mixer for a friend. Played some gigs in Denmark. Yup.
Will be heading to New York with a choir in a few days. Mostly modern classical music.
Found a clip from one of the very first Reverends concerts. This was somewhere far up in the north of Denmark. Kinda cute… we’ve changed somewhat since then. Highlight: Jens having trouble with his amp, lifting it up and letting it drop. Good times.
An exceptionally well-written book from a versatile writer. Six different stories ranging from historical maritime fiction to grim post-apocalyptic tales. With variety in genres comes variety in quality, however. The thriller part of the sextet was surprisingly uninspired compared to offerings such as ‘The Pacific Journal of Adam Ewing’, ‘Letters from Zedelghem’ and ‘Sloosha’s Crossin’ an’ Ev’rythin’ After’. These were quite brilliant, with the latter employing fantastic futuristic vernacular.
The novel is in reality a short story collection with a play on form. The attempt to connect the stories with hints of reincarnation and birth marks seems a bit forced and unnecessary. More important are the themes of subjugation, power lust and more, which run throughout the book.
Not sure how this will work as a movie, but I am very much looking forward to seeing Ben Whishaw from BBC’s The Hour in the role as Frobisher the composer.
Here is a facebook link to The Reverends’ gig on Saturday.
Update: We had a great party. Thanks to Evi for coming to the show and singing a few songs.
was out walking 5.72 km in 1h:12m:10s using Endomondo.
The Reverends are playing a gig at the Faroe House in Copenhagen on March the 2nd. If you are in the area, do come down.
