I AM BONES
ARTIST / BAND: I AM BONES
SONG (MP3): BUILDING HOSPITALS
ALBUM: Wromg numbers are never busy
FILE UNDER: Rock / Indie / Hardcore
INFO: Am Bones' primary engine is Johannes Gammelby.Since 2001, he has written countless songs in his bedroom and recorded them, playing all the instruments himself. However, this is not your typical bedroom-DIY-lo-fi package, the intention was to write aggressive pop. Anti-indie, if you will. (Define 'indie'?! ed.) It is all about seeing how far it is possible to go, in one given direction, with a short attention span.Thus, the debutalbum succeedes in combining hard-core, folk, hip-hop, new wave and just plain ol' rock 'n' roll.In order for the album to be realized, Gammelby recruited fellow morningsider and long-time friend Torsten Larsen (Larsen & Furious Jane) as producer on the album. additionally, long-time drummer-icon Piet Breinholm Bendtsen (18th Dye, Test, Rhonda Harris) and bassplayer Gaute Niemann from your future-favoriteband, Spleen United, were recruited. The ad hoc band recorded the basic tracks for Wrong Numbers Are Never Busy and Torsten and Gammelby finished the recordings themselves over the course of the summer 2005, adding vocals and more guitars and so forth.
