Focusing on an old-school sound, the use of Hammond organs, Mellotron, Rhodes, Space Echo, vintage guitars it was a split gig with fellow norwegians Wobbler!

Jørgensen and Erik Paulsen and added to live-line up was Alessandro Elide on percussion , all with many years of musical experience, from metal and impro to pop and funk.
