Seeing that the jubilee is next year, there has been a renewed surge of interest in Ping’s whatabouts and whereabouts. This is hardly surprising, given the spectacular nature of the artistic outlet you are about to receive. But ladies and gents, you will have to hold your hoses for a little while longer.
In the meantime we invite you to have a peek at what occurred in Brown Lagoon studios an evening in June, when the renowned Arctic throat singer Señor Baj joined us for some Pingoleeze pop-music propulsion. A display of craftsmanship, this classic little piece was composed, arranged and recorded in an eight hour sitting. (As usual, if any failed or aspiring states want to use the melody for national anthem – please give us a heads up in advance!)
While waiting for next years world wide twenty year Ping appreciation festivity, what better pastime than cooking up songs for the coming album? Tentatively titled “The Zigzag Manoeuvre”, a sobriquet destined to attract a variety of misspellings, the album is rumoured to contain a plethora of anticipated hits such as “Milk your mom!”, “I’m running in your tights”, “The usurpers of the afterlife” & “Picture of my cock”.
As many of you know 2014 was a rough year for Ping. Our studio for thirteen years burnt down, combusting most of our equipment and instruments. Amazingly – one harddisk with our recorded material survived! Still, it has taken time, money and effort to find a new place and rebuild everything. We are currently in a good groove and looking forward to share new material with you, as well as play some gigs!
