The new album will feature a sticker with a note prompting purchasers to send a text message to Universal, entering them into a contest to win an MP3 player pre-loaded with unreleased tracks from the artist.

we had the last days a forum + calender access problem due to
service provider's maintenance work.
the graphical redesign of www.molvaer.de had nothing to do with that!
webmaster Thorsten was able to repair the impact in incredible fast manner. thanks for that!
btw: if you want to know how Thorsten looks like, what his hobbies are and
which basses he prefers,
visit Thorsten's homepage and have an eye on german handcrafted Ritter-Basses -
I've tested the "classic" often and can say without reservation: one of the best choices you can make
.... although I prefer furthermore
graphite neck-through basses with Kahler tremolo (!).
see also about my earlier bass tremolo hobby of mine at an argentinian friend's page.
and yes: Kahler is up again and availible! order your complete trem or just single parts at axeparts.

first impressions of NPM's solo tour in words & photos from Skien

4. February 2005
the new Laurent Garnier record "the
cloud making machine" was released yesterday.
guest appearance: Bugge Wesseltoft
norsk newspaper 'aftenbladet' published an article about
Nils Petter's solo tour & the upcoming album.
fabulous Anne made a rough summary for us non-norwegians (with question marks....about the content):
"it says that this Remakes album is Molvaer himself who is remixing stuff of other people (Frost and Sidebrok and others). It's not people who will remix _one more time_ the stuff of Molvær. (This album is coming out in February.) So it seems that the discussion in the forum was based on a misunderstanding...
THEN in fall 2005, Molvaer will release a new solo album with new compositions and he's also working on the sound track of this french movie "requiem"
thingie becomes more molvaerish:

Pål "DJ Strangefruit" Nyhus again on the web @
Horten Jazzclub, Norway.
Anne's brief summary: "It says that on his next gig, Mr Pål Nyhus will make a full striptease and then whip Jan Bang. It is also about this nomination that Pål got last year for "best DJ in Norway". Then that he had during several years this radio show on NRK Petre that the big heads decided to delete. So it was a big revolution is Oslo, with people throwing stones and burning cars."
