It’s Release Day!
If you’ve pre-ordered the album, we hope that Mr. Postman will drop it off at your doorstep soon! We have received the CDs on Thursday and are working shifts to get your orders out as quickly as possible 🙂
To celebrate today, we are releasing a new video from that same live performance at the Cavern Club: A mash-up of “Please Mr. Postman” and the instrumental “Wipe Out”.
We remember singing “Please Mr. Postman” with our equally Beatles obsessed high-school-best-friend ALL THE TIME. We knew it wasn’t a Beatles original but we first heard it performed by the Fab Four and were hooked by their version. John’s raspy voice, the tight backing vocals, and a subject matter every teenager could relate to. Only that we weren’t waiting for a letter but rather the next text message 🙂
When said best friend came visiting us in Liverpool a few years ago we spent hours reminiscing about that time and remembered all the songs we used to sing during lunch break – ‘Please Mr. Postman’ of course being one of them! So off we went to our rehearsal room, grabbed a guitar and had a little go at it. It was a beautiful moment!
A few weeks later we decided to add the song to our Cavern setlist and started performing it with the guys. It was so much fun every time. We can’t quite remember how on earth we came up with the idea to inject a bit of “Wipe Out” into the arrangement but it worked :-D. It quickly became one of our favourites to perform!On this note we want to give a big shout out to Callum Williams (bass and backing vocals) and Charlie Skeggs (drums) for not just their badass playing but for making our time on and off stage so fun and memorable!And of course to Papa Rudi and Michaela for filming, editing, mixing, producing and releasing this bad boy. True team work as always ♥
The last few months have been dreary to say the least, so to be able to create and share music with such an enthusiastic and loving audience has been one of the things that kept us sane this year. We hope our music was and is able to give you some happy moments, too.
We are already back in the studio, recording new original music, filming new videos and preparing a whole lot of things we can’t wait to share with you in 2021. With this live album we are able to end 2020 on a really positive note, and we can’t thank you enough for the many pre-orders and the reception it has already gotten from those who listened early in the MLT Club.
We hope this album brings you as much joy as it does for us.
Take heart, take care, and stay groovy!
