Some friends of mine did a band before I even met them. They were rehearsing and rehearsing but performing very little for different and weird reasons (from illness to laziness). They kept on playing in their place, a former barn outside my hometown, Banyoles. In this place that could be in the mid-west of the US (but it's not) they became faster and more intense. Somehow their music got condensed into something very essential of what they are. All this years of rehearsals condensed in every song.
