flameout recordings
            low fire:                          nasa dude:
    salvation is at hand                    ate her
not much going on right now - it is summer, after all, and there are more important things in life than
maintaining obscure d.i.y. labels that very few people know about and even fewer people give
a damn about (though i can't think of any such things right now). i've been reading nabokov & playing with klub
argot, the premier (not to say only) danish community of da-da noise makers, at the danish forma nova festival.
both of these activities are highly recommendable.

the nasa dude cd-r got some nice reviews - those of you who read danish can look at them here:
geiger &
undertoner. for those of you who don't know, "ate her" is a collection of (mostly) previously unreleased
songs by carl christian tofte, the "grand old man" of the danish lo-fi rawk scene. you can listen to some of the songs
the nasa dude myspace site.
the latest low fire release, entitled "salvation is at hand", got a pretty nice review & a pretty awful one.
share the nice one with you & forget the other one. 4 of the songs on this li'l ep can be heard on
low fire myspace site.

summer laziness aside, new releases are in the works. one will be a comp featuring works by various people
whose works i'm in love with, and the other will be another album of unreleased stuff by carl christian tofte
(he's got loads!) & i promise that this one will be even better (& in danish!). so stay tuned, and do not hesitate to
write me if you should feel like it.

best, niklas
