Oh Ghost - my GF just started touring with him (well she did the last European tour and finale in Mexico at least...), responsible for changing over his masks/outfits (amongst other things...)
That's insanely cool. Consider me very jealous. Would love to have a beer with Tobias one day.

I loved all 31 seconds of this song as a kid.

Before it went all fucking depressing.

Wasn't that on the old mobile ads continually? MTV as well as Republica, "Ready to Go!" for pre-paid phones. Can't remember the network as they changed hands so many times. Even worked for telecoms when I got older. Certainty went from independant to bought up from carrier to carrier.

I sold their agents air-time. Was fun explaining to people that their kids were looking at porn as their bill was HUGE for getting 6.50 pounds a minute for the fact it connected to a satillte.

(connection to the carrier meant I could discount, still 4.50 a damn minute though, they nearly always paid).

I remember it from a Levi's advert around 1995. Mobile phones looked like this back then:

Oh they looked like that even earlier. Missed the Dr.Who finale as rang my best mate in school and said his order of condoms were ready, to his mother.

She immediately rang my house to complain. As I mentioned my mates father was high up in telecoms, nearly the top. He got my mate (his son) a paid job for a new venture making a website for it. Unknownst to to me I'd changed his voicemail to "hello this is <redacted> and I am gay!". That went down badly he was absolutely livid with me. Back when passwords were all '0000'. Everyone was doing it, not good for business though.

EDIT: not proud of that, just what people did back then for a laugh.

Ah the old days of the wild west of phones. Mobile the size of a shoe on your belt.

Seeing the bill, thinking "Oh fuck" and then finding out about SMS. Then thinking "Oh fuck again". texts were rare and expensive.

Damn, this LP really sounds like an EDM JRPG. Getting some Dot Hack vibes from this as well. 🖤 Dark0
