From purple to orange
I know the albums are the most important thing in a bands career, since they'll be around forever and will be judged by everyone who's interrested. By now I guess most of you know that I prefer to play live than recording in a studio. To me, playing live as an artform is much more interresting and I'm dead serious about it. Especially nowadays when you "don't sell any records" anymore, it's more important than ever to have a winning concept. By that I mean, bring out the best in the band and try to hide the not so strong sides of the band. If you can manage to do just that and present a nice package (your package) to the audience...you might get successful after a while? The thing I can tell you about the "Powerplay tour", is that HFMC is still getting better for every gig and to me that's a sign of a band in good health. The thing I'm most happy with about the HFMC gigs, are the warm feeling, or atmosphere we've been able to create together with the audience, almost like an interaction between us. Thank you guys...you're the best!
By now my "purple days" are over and I'm slowly turning orange. I can honestly say that when it comes to the music, I'm not the least worried about the upcoming TFK tour. If you think of the gigs we've done so far (Sweden Rock Festival, Night of the Prog), according to me, it's like we've reached a new level - it's an intensity and hunger that hasn't been there before. With those gigs and the one in Gothenburgh now on saturday at Slottskogen goes Progressive and the rehearsals afterwards, I hope TFK will be able to serve you a musical experience far better than we've ever done before. At least there's one thing I'm sure of, the visual aspects of this tour are beyond everything in the history of TFK. Ladies and Gentlemen - this can not be missed! Join the movement...the orange revolution...witness something you've never seen before - The Flower Kings "Banks of Eden tour"
