I decided to blog about my three "it" songs on one of my publishers' blogs today. These are three songs that inspire me to write, and of course I took the opportunity to slip a little about APHND into the mix somewhere. Do go take a read: http://lyricalpress.blogspot.com/2011/01/music-that-moves-me.html

 

Of course I still can't make up my mind whether I like Die Alone more than To Die in your Arms (I feel those songs are somehow linked), but Pill Head has been sticking in my head a lot over the past few days since my digipack arrived. My only complaint: Sal, there aren't enough songs!

 

I've been educating some of my friends locally, and so far the response has been very positive. Even my husband, who is notoriously difficult, agrees APHND has great music.

Nice! you need to let us know when you are heading to NYC. We also plan to go maybe later this year but more than likely next year. we want to spend at least a week in the city and meet up with people from the TON board, etc. Ideally we would want to go when there are gigs as well but we would need advance notice of course to pull that off. Who knows, maybe we will be there at the same time. I'm heading to Las Vegas for work the end of March...too early probably for any APHND gigs there around that time

It's the plan to eventually cut ties with my homeland for a few years. I'd like to spend some time in a number of places, and if all goes according to plan, I'll conceivably be able to work from anywhere in the world. At any rate, I'm trying to work to the point where my content editing pays enough to make this sort of lifestyle worthwhile. It's going to get there. Just early days still. But first on my list is a visit to the US. I've friends in San Francisco and I **definitely** want to spend some time in NYC.

you are not planning to come this way (Europe) anytime soon?

I hold out a vain hope that some of these bands can eventually visit South Africa. About the biggest event we've got happening in Feb is Rammstein's whirlwind tour. Sold-out performances already. But we've got a lovely alternative scene happening. So much more than when I was still playing, and its great seeing some of our bands starting to make headway overseas.

really nice Nerine. I can so much relate to not finding a band that you like for a long time. For me it was always and above all TON and then the Sisters, maybe a couple bands in between. Now we have APHND and Seventh Void, different but both great and I am just amazed that these two bands emerged as they did. There is hope for us after all:)

Thanks, Mike. I'm definitely going to look for opportunities to promote APHND whenever I get the chance. I daresay my friends are breathing a sigh of relief that I'm not blathering on about the other topics that seemed to be a bit of a stuck record through most of last year. Just really chuffed right now that I managed to get press interest for a national paper here in South Africa. Everyone I've played the music to so far has liked it.

awesome blog Nerine, you are a really amazing writer.

i agree that there should be more songs on here because every song is amazing and we all want more. but we all have to be patient and more will soon come. so far i have to say Serial Killer is my fav song, and When Crows Descend Upon You is a close second.

Thank you. Did you see the "invite" I received to follow the fundie's blog? I'm still having a quiet chuckle. Why do people assume that I need "help" when I prefer to be morbidly happy? I get all my best stories from the dark corners.

your blog was awesome, word for word I agree , music has the same effect on me as well
