All my life I have been a fan! Always been a fan. I am getting star struck. Even star struck by the person that shows me great stuff. This Friday I became star struck by the person that showed me the band that have followed me for over a decade. A band that really if there were more concerts back then – and now I would follow them around. As a hang around. I would not think twice on doing that. I have thought about why I love their sound and tunes so much over so many years. It truly have been a band that have grasped them self to my heart for so many years that it truly dedication. It shows that this band reeks quality for days. So from the bottom of my heart;
Last week was destroyed like Alderaan! It were an explosion to the point of not being centered, but over the weekend the mind was settled back for good again. It settled also for going back in time, back to a time there I read MUTE magazine pages up and pages down.
For years I have been worshipped Ralph Myerz and the Jack Herren band – they became my «religion»! Ralph Myerz and the Jack Herren band made me give up all the crappy compact discs in my collection – the band were on repeat especially these tunes «Nikita» from A special EP, «Think Twice», «Savannah» from the album A special album, «Bergen» from Your New Best Friends, «1982 Robotdance» from Kill The DJ Album. It was a devastating funeral mood when the news about them breaking up as a band reached my ears, I just started to cry rivers. It was sad! They were my total first love when getting the knowledge about electronic music. For years I dreamt about the ultimate blood fan fantasy – the reunion of the band. It did happen and thank heaven for that! Ralph Myerz and the Kosmik Diamondz is a side project coming from Erlend Sellevold aka Ralph Myerz (SoundCloud link) the man that started this band – just want to make that clear so that there is no confusion. The sound has changed a bit though – and to the better! So let us hope the reinforced Ralph Myerz and the Jack Herren Band do not break up again – I do not know what will happen with me then…
