I would actually describe myself best as a guitarist and singer. But I've always been fascinated by good bass players. A new era began in the mid-70s when Stanley Clarke and others stepped out of the shadows of being only an accompanist and showed what it was like when the bass was used as a solo instrument. One of my absolute favorites was Wayman Tisdale, who unfortunately died far too early. There was so much vitality and musicality in his bass playing that you simply couldn't escape it. I asked Karsten if he would like to play a tribute song for Wayman with me. He said yes, and so the cover of "Watch me play" was born. A song that expresses exactly what I have quoted above. We hope you like it too.

I've always liked the music of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. On the one hand, because their songs had melodies that you could sing along to the second time you heard them. On the other hand, I like the voice of Tom P. His singing may seem unspectacular at first glance. Not bombastic, like Freddy M., or rocky, like Joe C., but honest and melodious in a very specific way. But the most important thing for me is that I have the same vocal range as Tom P. It was only a matter of time before I would do a cover of one of their songs. Karsten agreed. I wanted to make the playback a bit more rocky and bass-driven, but Karsten put a spoke in my wheel. His argument was that if my vocals sound so similar to Tom P., then we might as well try to get as close as possible to the original sound. I agreed with him and Karsten did everything he could to create another perfect mix. But maybe I'll do a reprise, a short instrumental with a different musical playback, we´ll see. ;-))

POOL was the band I was on the road with in the early 80s. The four recordings you hear now were made in our practice room in 1982. So more than 40 years ago. Of course absolutely Lo Fi. recorded with only one 2-track tape, a bit overdriven. Anyway. My voice is even stronger than today, that's what time brings with it. Nevertheless, these recordings don't deserve to spend any more time in a dark drawer. Listen in, if you like it, I'll be happy, if not just press stop.
