Too valueable to throw away. ;o)
Our singer Catherine Klier left our band because of her duties as mother of a little doughter. Cathi joined the young Band in autumn 1996, it was a very amazing and creative time and as you shurely can imagine we all had a lot of fun playing live and doing CDs with her.
We recorded our last shared concert, played on the 9th of November. It will be available as 'official' Bootleg in a limited edition at the end of the year. When exactly will be anounced on this page.

Beside new pictures and a new live date we got a Quicktime Video of our Song Wake up, recorded live last autumn, for you to download.

Klaus found some old 8 track recordings in some dark corners of his office. We recorded them in early '98 in our rehearsal room. Three of them were mixed in the studio today and one song will be uploaded on our treasure page every month. The first song is called Ikarus.
Our homepage is moving to another server. It will remain accessible under http://www.tftt.de, so this information may only be interesting, if you're experiencing any problems. Please send me an email if this is the case. Thanks!
(04-25-2001) TREASURE MP3 UPDATED
A new mp3 is uploaded on our Treasure MP3 Page (whatever that means *g*). At least it means that you can get it right now, but if you prefer a CD, your desire possibly will be satisfied with the 'Roll over Germany' Sampler, which should be released this Summer. It will be available in Germany only, but if you're interested drop me (Pablo) a line and I'll figure out how to manage.
The Marburg gig is cancelled.
We've been in the studio once again and finished the recording of a new song, which will be released on a sampler. The exact date is not known yet. We'll keep you informed on this site or on our mailinglist. I plan to put it on our HP for you to download, too.

(01-06-2001) OUR NEW CD
People told me that it's hard to believe that we've just released a new CD, because it's so hard to find on our Homepage. I hope it's a little easier now ...
If you want a copy please ask me. If you want to download some MP3's first, klick on the image above !
(01-03-2001) MP3 DOWNLOADS
Our MP3's can be found on our discography page !
From now on our MP3's are not longer available on MP3.com. The main reason is that they want you to give your complete home address if you want to download any offered song and want you to allow that this information may be passed to others. That's not the way we wan't to distribute our music, so we decided not to use this service any more.

It's all so quiet, it's all so still... Summertime seems to cut a big hole in whatever people call the internet, but that's not a reason to stop writing songs and record CD's, right? If things go well, a new record can be expected around 2000/01.

Hi, someone asked me why this page is in english. I know it's pretty unusual and irritating for a '.de' domain, so I decided to put up (at least) some pages in german. A german news and biography page (the 2nd will be a different, much longer text) have been added and no, I will _not_ translate the lyrics to german ;o).
Just in case you're wondering why I haven't done this before; the main reason is that I was to lazy, the 2nd reason is (you might have guessed it already) that we wan't to become International Superstars. Yeah, that's right ;o)))

O.k. it's time to reveal a little secret. One of the three tribute albums we'd contributed to, is dedicated to Ron Sexsmith (check out our gallery for a snapshot). It was meant as a birthday present to Ron, and if you're really quick, you may ask for it on the RonSexsmith mailinglist at onelist.com or contact us, if you're not brave enough, to do it on your own ;o). The CD contains about 76 minutes of great music, half of the songs are Ron Sexsmith songs and the other half are compositions of the contributing artists. Try to get a copy, it's definatly worth it!

The date in the 'Ambiente', 12-11-1999, Bad Kreuznach we're going to play a *calm* set. This means that the songs would sound slighty different from what they normally do. It was great fun to turn them upside down. Expect the unexpected. BTW we'll play TAR from RS ... hehe ...
We had some problems with our counter on the Index-Page and with our Guest-book, but I hope it is fixed now. And don't believe everything you read!!
