Last night Yugen's rehearsals frantically went on in a quartet-style. Lacking our rhythm section, thanks to an obsessive and loud metronome, we went through some of the most intricate songs we'll play on the next Sept. 22nd in Milan.
Yesterday a trio version of Yugen (me, Maurizio Fasoli and Alessandro Cassani) rehearsed in a ghostly and hot Milan. I met the bass player Alessandro Cassani when we played together in Not A Good Sign, and he recorded bass for Death by Water cd. In this brief and (very) raw video he shows his skills as a fast-learner, playing a wicked pattern from Overmurmur "quasi a prima vista". Gosh.
Yesterday Yugen officially started rehearsing for their return on stage, next Sept 22nd at Casa di Alex, Milan, with the Canadian band Miriodor. Maurizio Fasoli, Alessandro Cassani, Paolo Botta and Francesco Zago got together in an underground site to read music from the last cd "Death by Water". Outside the building, a group of crazy wasps decided to give us some push (in particular our bass player Alessandro).
