Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the lobby of the hotel where we stayed during the recording sessions, there was this big wooden elephant. This elephant became a kind of symbolic for how it felt like to be reunited and playing together again as a band after almost 14 years.

People say that an elephant never forgets. And like the proverbial elephant our band discovered its own collective memory during the two days of our stay in Antwerp. We didn’t need a single sheet of music. Right from the first note it popped back into our heads and we played the tunes as if it was only yesterday!
