Hi everybody,

although I love it so much I haven’t been to the Forum for many weeks now and I am sure I have missed a lot of great songs. But my love Maha has been very ill since January and to be honest she’s even worse now than she was then. So I’m on duty 24/7 (that’s at least what it feels like) and I don’t have the time (and even more the peace) to come here and I’m afraid that this will go for the next weeks, too..

Some of you may remember that Maha does all the sound jobs on my songs and since she’s unable to continue this at the moment there is sort of a mixing bottleneck. And, of course, she can neither act in our videos. I could ask a friend (a former studio owner) to do the sound stuff, but that would take the rest of that little optimism she still has.

So there will be a small waterfall of songs and videos as soon as she’s OK again , but in order to have you remember us for the time being here’s the last project we’ve finished so far (in late 2018 when life was still carefree). Again it’s a very funny thing (at least if you share our and our friends’ sense of humour.. .) and we had an incredible lot of fun working on it.



VIDEO (with lyrics)

AUDIO (with lyrics)

AUDIO (on Soundcloud)

Warning: The intro is looooong, but if you skip it you will never get to know what a dream recorder is and what all men (yes, you, too!) usually dream about in their sleep. And you'll miss Maha's awesome appearamce as a TV host.

The song is a rocking little thing, telling two incredible stories - these are the musical data:

Basic style is _ROAD_OR.STY (Fast Even 8ths Blues w/ Organ ), but I changed quite a lot and actzally kept only bass and organ RTs:

RealDrums in style: BluesBBEven8^01-a:Snare, HiHat , b:Snare, Ride
(Replaced by own drums using MP Power Drums)

RealTracks in style: ~579:Bass, Electric, Blues Roadhouse Ev 120

RealTracks in style: ~584:Guitar, Resophonic, Rhythm Blues Roadhouse Ev 120
RealTracks in style: 580:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Blues Roadhouse
Ev 120
Instead used these guitar tracks: RT 582, RT 1718,RT 1719

RealTracks in style: ~674:Organ, B3, Background Blues Roadhouse Ev 120
(Special usage of the organ here: re-generated it on an additional track and swapped channels on it)

Maha and I would be happy if you enjoyed the whole thing.

All the best,

Stefan

What an odd and delightfully intriguing video! Really dug the overall quirkiness of this. Very fun sounding song too, the drums do play nicely with the rest of the instrumentation. Thanks for sharing!

First of all, very sorry to hear that Maha is still not feeling good! Hopefully that will sort itself out soon.

On to the video, brilliant! Loved the concept, and the intro and outro is fun.

And also really enjoyed the song and the performance. I’m fan of your guitar playing, nice phrasing, tone, and you never overplay.

Best to you and Maha.

Stefan...
I always look forward to seeing your videos...
Even though I often have to pause or rewind...
to see all the quirky things within the video smile...
I pray Maha recovers quickly so we can all be blessed with more of your creativity!

Good thoughts for Maha.

This was so much fun. I think my favorite of yours. I had a Laugh Out Loud moment when the first dinosaur appears screen right. Surreal. The lyrical story is very funny too. Band sounds great, and the vocals, harmonies, and leads were right in the pocket. A big time.

Hi Stefan ...

I, too, have been absent for most of the past few months for the same reasons as you. I can fully fully empathize with your situation. First, Di and I wish the very best for Maha ... a full recovery, and soon. We will keep her in our prayers. She is so talented and I know, from our personal messages, she is a wonderful lady and wife.

The song and video are terrific!

Ich liebe alles über dieses Projekt ... deine Vorstellung und deine Endübergabe. Einfach fabelhaft!

That was too much fun! You are not only a gifted singer and musician ... you are s a complete and wonderful entertainer. What a great video and song!

Wishing both of you the very best.

Alan - Di, too!

Maha: Wir hoffen, dass Du sich völlig von deine Krankheit bald erholen. Du und Stefan sind gute Freunde zu uns.

Hi Stefan,

I'm so sorry to hear that Maha is still ill and suffering. All my good thoughts go to her - I wish and hope she will be fine again soon!

I liked the video a lot - you really have your own style which is very recognizable and it is always fun to see and hear what your great imaginative mind has created.

Thanks a lot for sharing!
Will

Stefan,

So sorry to hear about Maha's illness. I hope she recovers soon.

I always enjoy you humor. This was great--the funniest set of lyrics I've heard in a long time. I enjoyed the video too. Hahahahahaaaaa!

Thanks, Herb, I really appreciate your kind words. Yes, it was a lot of work, but most of all a lot of fun. And what's an old fart supposed to do instead ...?

Dear Jim,

And thanks a lot for your very kind words about my videos - yes, after I designed the general layout of everything I take a lot of extra time to [*****] up things with all thos 'quirky' (I like that word) details, and I am especually glad, when viewers takle the time to discover them.

Once again, thanks a lot, Jim, and all the best to you and yours,

Stefan
