Marianne made the score for this short film, produced as a promo piece for TV2 in Norway. It´s also a nice instructional video for you kids out there, demonstrating how people used to communicate in the olden days, by writing “letters” on “paper”, with a thing called a “pen”.
dittoslo.no reports from Katzenjammer´s first ever (!) festival gig at home in Oslo on June 21.
The website analogROCK writes about the song God´s Great Dust Storm:
“The power that lies behind this piece of music doesn’t stop there. If, like me, you struggle to grasp the story through Katzenjammer’s poetic lyrics, you can still feel the haunting story through the pain, suffering and the begging of forgiveness that pours through the tones of the band’s harmonies. When I listen to it my mind paints a picture of someone being whipped up by a whirl wind of spirits as they are tortured with unimaginable pain for the sins they have committed before being eventually cleansed and forgiven. Yeah I know, that seems incredibly deep from a single piece of music and even I’m shocked at where it took my imagination but that’s what this song can do. It is more than just a track to pass time whilst you sit and stare at lolcats on Facebook. This is music that opens the door to your imagination and shows you a world that existed way before the lazy days of fancy smartphones and stupid memes.”
The rest is here
Marianne picked a reasonably representative selection of all the goodness that is the “Images Under Construction” trilogy of EP´s, stuffed it all onto one CD, and released it in Germany this month. At the moment there´s just eight copies left at Amazon.de, but apparently more are on the way. Go get it!
While Marianne has been in Austin, TX for SXSW, Sol and Anne Marit played at the World Cup in Oslo´s Holmenkollen. Temperature difference: 50 degrees celsius.
The summer is starting to shape up, katzen-touring-wise. Here´s a tidbit: Katzenjammer are joining Die Ärzte as main support in Bremen´s Burgerweide on August 24th. Check out ticket links to the right–>
