It’s time to announce that yes, there will be a Liminals vinyl record! A limited edition of 250 copies, so if you one want make sure to order here. This week we will send it to the manufacturers and then hopefully release it by the end of August.

On December 6 we had a small Friendly Noise Christmas party at the art gallery Detroit in Stockholm. A very nice day with glögg, gingerbread biscuits, presents, live music by Luva, Ring Snuten and Komponisten, premiere screenings of the new Testbild! video by Pontus Lundkvist (which will be included on the “Aquatint”, the forthcoming Testbild! album), and Sebastian Rozenberg’s new videos for Parker Lewis and Luva.
We also gave away 50 copies of a 12 page fanzine in A4 format where we, amongst other things, try to explain our release ideas for 2009 . Here’s a pdf of it for those of you you weren’t there (it’s in Swedish…), and here’s about 30 photos from the party.

Dags för novembergången av Friendly Noises klubb, då vi har bjudit in:
Live: SARTO. Gammal Friendly Noise-favorit. Senaste gången vi såg honom live var på Friendly Noise/FLM-tillställningen på Allmänna galleriet i mars. Det är ju jättelänge sedan. Sedan dess skivaktuell med bästa Förmögenhet-versionen på “Har du hört den förut?”-samlingen.
Gäst-dj: JOHAN NEIJ. Från bloggen Jo/No’s Audio Delights, vars inriktning är “an eclectic smorgasboard of sounds from all over the world”. Kolla till exempel upp hans mix “Pop as in Pop! J as in jazz!”
