1 more year - charts

watch out 2011 - it looks like you´re going to be replaced soon. And what a year it was in so many ways! I leave this to anyone´s guess without getting political or personal. One thing is sure, though: there´s a lot of work coming up for all of us; and hard working people need hard working musicians to help them escape from their day-to-day in an appropriate and inspiring way. may we all play our part. here are a few examples of who inspires us:

bauhaus - bela lugosi's dead
cambodian rocks - a2
paul mccartney - check my machine
tv on the radio - forgotten
david lynch - good day today
offwhyte - beta alpha
john jacob niles - go away from my window
anika - i go to sleep
stephan bodzin - sonnenwind
molly nilsson - won´t somebody take me out tonight

Little Girl (video)

This is a demo version of our song "Little Girl" from our upcoming LP "Second Painting". We think it fits the grey and cold atmosphere of Berlin fall/winter season perfectly, which is why we release this video now - before the song will be completely finished for our new record. Enjoy! And in case you´re sipping on long drinks in the tropics just imagine how sexy looking for love in winter jackets can be... or just have one on us.

Born in a Cell

This is your first impression of our song "Born in a Cell", which will be featured on our upcoming LP. The performance took place at .HBC in Berlin on saturday, Nov. 12th 2011. It marked the end of an amazing concert and we are glad to announce another show in Berlin on thursday, Dec. 8th, at King Kong Klub in Mitte. We´re going to play with Leila Albayaty and Benedikt Gramm and DJ Festmusik Auferlegt will once again spin some tunes for the party crowd.

Dear followers, 
different circumstances have led us to the conclusion to go on as a duo (without Andrew and Adriano). We are now facing the challenge to become deeper involved with our computers´ capabilities and EBP-fans can expect the band to sound live a lot more like on their recordings. We´re going to spend the next few months mainly on recording and producing the overdue first EBP-LP. Jan is going to perform a few solo-gigs in New York and all over the US during june. Fall will have us back with a brand-new sound and a fresh face for shows and releases. In the meantime you should check out our updated website, buy a shirt and/or a bag there, visit us on bandcamp and buy our songs there, and keep yourself updated on this very blog. Oh - and there is an Evol Bum Pearl flickr-account now, that feeds you with photos of the band´s life. Have a great summer. 
// Jan & Stephan
