Well, today is a good day to restart our news-column. Jon Øyvind Nordby, our bassist, has quit the band, and we're re-founding our original trio line-up - with Marius on the bass guitar. A brief summary of the band's personell evolution so far: Morten, Marius and Bjarne founded the band in 1998. Tord Ø. Knudsen joined the band on the bass guitar in late 2001. Tord quit in July 2003 to go to school in Liverpool. Jon Øyvind Nordby replaces Tord in October 2003. As mentioned, Jon Øyvind quit today - to focus on his work in two other bands - so we, being Morten, Marius and Bjarne, are now re-founding our original trio. Marius puts his electric guitar on the shelf, and picks up the bass guitar.
