Hospital Billy

A few months have gone past and my hands are healing themselves slowly. But my assets are not. So in order to help me pay for my hospital bills, I am trying to get folks to commission songs from h,hg.

If you spend $50 or more on any of the hungry, hungry ghost releases on our Bandcamp page, you will get a personalized song on the theme of your choice.

There is one song being made now and I would love some more, not only to help me pay off my hospital bills, but also to make an EP out of it!

So spread the word if you could..

It Rained. I'm Poor. But Not Alone.

H,HG played its first west coast show on Sunday, at the first annual East Bay Mini Maker Faire in Oakland. Complete with brand new Wagemann (now worse for wear from the rain). It was pouring. It was 10:30 in the morning. It was an experience.

In other news, this project will soon be a band again. And work on the album WILL commence. I love you, goodbye.

Friday, October 8, 2010

NUMBER THREE: grand duke henri, the creepy penpal

i'm giving away my kunst:

"Tone Deaf/Tone Deaf" - another re-recorded and re-arranged version of a song from 2006. This version, based on our live performances of the song in 2008, was recorded in early 2009 during the Cycloptic Myopia sessions.

The Quarter-Centenarian: new single-track release

In a beginning effort not to hold onto music for very long before i send it out the window, a new single-track release from h,hg is available entitled The Quarter-Centenarian which was recorded, mixed and mastered in August and September here in Brooklyn.

You can download a regular-quality version of the track, for free, or choose to download the high-quality version for one dollar. Both are available at our bandcamp site.

Look out for more single-track releases in the future. Thanks, love, alex.

montag montag

It's so hard to wake up sometimes. For years I have found myself on "very important missions" right as I probably should be waking up. In my school years once I even yelled at my mother as she was trying to wake me up for what was likely the fourth or fifth time, "I can't, I'm on a mission!"

This morning, I was practicing a non-existant Cat Stevens song in front of a mirror, naked except for a headband. And I was certain that I could not wake up into my actual life until I got that song down.

Maybe it's nervousness.

Come out and see for yourselves, I'm playing another HUNGRY, HUNGRY GHOST PLAYS ALONG WITH SELF-KARAOKE show tonight in Manhattan at The Delancey (168 Delancey St., between Clinton & Attorney).

It is part of some bittersweet irony-themed night called Laid-Off Mondays and apparently if you can prove that you got laid off, you get one free shot of tequila at midnight.. But I am playing at 8 p.m. So.. maybe have a shot before you come.

Probably talking to myself,

So. Here I am again, frenziedly playing here and there to no one. Working my langsam way up a ladder whose bars are invisible and which undeniably stands upon two levels, encroaching dangerously upon the absolute zero point of must-fall. Is anyone out there? I think I hate the internet. No, I love it...No, I hate it.. No, wait..

The show last week really sent my week into a bitter spiral toward my third sickness within 35 days. A depressing room of relics, empty but for the employers and employees and one of two of the other people who also played. A live webcam, but a terrible feeling of failure. I thank my brother and the sound guy and the one clapping guy on the barstool. I thank you. To top it all off, I accidentally decapitated my newest bandmate, the sweet Else Pappe...

Perhaps it's just the winter doldrums creeping into my skin, but it's starting to make the Germany shows in front of 15-20 people seem like stadium affairs. . . Here I am again!

Aye, but I've chosen it and I will do it. There are things on the horizons, new releases and the such. But as the base ideas for these have been changing rapidly and occasionally, I utter not a word. Except that there is a new song (likely not from an upcoming release) available on our myspace page.

O sweet Earth - usher in the Spring, I beg it of you and with it the conquering feeling of a warm day's work.

Love always,

Hello, good december to you, lovely heart-owners.
Tomorrow (Sunday, 9. December), we will be playing a very special three-song live set on Fritz Radio RBB here in Berlin and Brandenburg.
GMT+1: 18:00-20:00. EST: 12:00-14:00.

If you are in the area, the radio frequence is 102,6.
If you are not, then you should be able to hear the live stream from this link.

Then two days later, we'll be trudging our way to Hamburg to play aboard the MS Stubnitz, which we hear is some sort of insane musical party cruiser. That shall yet be seen, comrades. Anyway, if yr in Hambürsch, then come give a hoot. And perhaps a holler.

All the love I can scrounge out of the corners of my eyes,

US orders

hey if you live in the US and have been thinking or contemplating about or pondering to purchase our album you should order it from CD Baby at! it's easy and they are very friendly and helpful there. you can of course also still buy it from our website. even if you live in the US. or buy it from their store even if you live outside the US.

if you really can't decide, come to our SHOW on the 25th at the infamous Schokoladen. which would be a little too much to ask if you live in the US, then you should buy the album from their website. or our website. which doesn't mean that you per se can't come out to the SHOW.

Good day. Our new album is currently being manufactured and will finally see release on 5. October 2007 on Widerheim. The album is called "Sleeping English" and has eleven tracks, which we have semi-tediously been working on for more than a year now. The tracklisting is as follows:

1. Hundred Yard Reach 2. Seldom Am I 3. Complimentary Maps
4. Golden Boy 5. Sleeping English 6. Blind 7. Escape to Witch Mtn.
8. Bonhauser Allee (Don't Know the Words) 9. Exploder
10. The Magpie 11. We Are Melting!

The album was recorded in Moabit between June 2006 and April 2007 and was mastered by Tom Müller in May of 2007. The album artwork (which is beautifully extended in actual format) was made by the gracious Elizabeth Sargent.

More info about that soon! xoxoxo aleks!

hi everyone! we have new shoes! no what i meant to say is we have new SHOWS coming up. you can see the dates a little way down on the right. the show on the 23rd will be a rock show, the one after that will be more of a lounge show but rocking, too. also, the theme for both shows will be "dogs and lords", as a nod to 80s comedy movies. so feel free to dress up. -sven
