04January2006 New year's resolutions

So what is coming up this winter from the alog camp?

Two vinyl releases will bring alog back to their vinyl roots. First up is a long lost EP called "Islands of Memory" that was recorded the summer of 1999 in Malmø, Sweden. It was scheduled for release around the time of our "Duck-Rabbit" CD for Rune Grammofon. But due to unknown problems at the vinyl plant it never saw the light of day, and was lost boiling in the vinyl cauldron somewhere in Switzerland. This autumn we suddenly got a mail from Swiss record label Creaked that the original master had been found by chance in a messy office in Lausanne, hidden under stacks of papers and cds. They where shocked to hear that it hadn´t been released yet! So finally it is now ready after so many years of maturing (...or the world is possibly ready for it). It is covered in beautiful design from Big Magnus at Grandpeople (also responisble for the Catch that Totem design). Releasedate: february

Next up is the release on EN/OF label of our "Just Recording" album, which features all new tracks (except a few tracks previewed on the Totem compliation). Visual artist Anri Sala from Albania will do the cover artwork. Releasedate: tba

A few concerts will coincide with these releases. Confirmed is Malaga, Spain on the 17. february.

Phonophani will participate on a tour of Norway called "Generator X" together with other musicians and video artists in april. Around that time the self-titled debut album of Phonophani, released in 1998 on biophon records and long since deleted, will be rereleased on rune grammofon with extra material from this period. More information to come...

Rumors about the making of a follow-up album to last years Miniatures has also been heard around here lately, but is yet to be confirmed...
