Hello fellow Loopers,
in this improvised blog the fish and I will be talking about the Herring King Band album that is currently cooking, and give you all the latest on what’s going on with the Herrings. Although we must be in the top 50 of popular Wikiloops bands, many Loopers are unaware that a strange royal fish is swimming around the Wikiloops seas.

The band was started in 2017 together with Gemmy, eGil, Whitedrum55, Arkrockstudio and it took about a year and a half to create and publish the Album here on Wikiloops. The idea behind it was to create songs together where we would fiddle a bit with the structure, bounce some ideas, change some stuff, you know, he old fashioned band way. Jams are fine and fun, but we craved something more. We wanted a proper album. We did not have a set idea what songs, what subject what style, the only thing that was mentioned that I was not allowed to play too many blues type solos. Cruel…I WAS DENIED!!!

The resulting shall we say “chaos” of creativity produced a collection of songs that I am personally very proud of – it’s a matter of taste of course – but I like it, and many of our fellow Loopers gave us good feedback, of which we are very grateful.

The first album can be found here https://www.wikiloops.com/album/13149-Herring+King+Band+Album.php
But if someone just wants to listen to one song then maybe give this one a try, one of my favourite tracks:

continue....

So a year and half later I started to get the itch again… this time I wanted to have some sort of idea behind it all, some sort of structure or story that would be the spine of the album. In the meantime, as often happens, the band personnel has changed, and we re-grouped with some old and some new faces, and we are already hard at work with new material. I will talk about the new members in the coming weeks.
The first song of the new album has been published, which is going to be song 12 of the album:

I just realized to my horror that the wikiloops player I embedded in the previous posts do not show on a mobile phone, so I changed them to regular links... now everyone can see them :W
