For this record FS Blumm has written some of his most light-hearted tunes, accompanied by NY trumpeter Luca Fadda. Wonderful guitar and double bass lines are accompanied with processed toy instruments and found objects. The new dimension of this album is the collaboration with Luca Fadda who places digitally processed trumpets on top of Blumm's material. These improvised elements add a new live feeling to F.S. Blumm's music and creates a less melancholic mood than previous records released on labels like Morr, Staubgold and Plop. There are two 15 minute pieces on this album: one is `Ricke and Dina`, the other is `Giorgi and Lucy'. `Giorgi and Lucy' was inspired by the last piece of a live set at the `epistrophy' in New York on December 1st 2006 where Luca Fadda and F.S.Blumm met on stage. éRicke and Dina' is based on a performance done in front of a childrens-audience during the presentation of a Peruvian fair trade collection of children`s wear at the belleville-store in Berlin on the afternoon of Oct. 1st 2005. This 3 hour live set has been carefully recorded by Lupo. Then F.S. Blumm did some overdubs in his 7 square meter storeroom (guitar, bass and tons of toys) and sent a CD-R to New York where in the spring of 2007 Luca Fadda recorded all the effected and uneffected trumpets on all tracks at Jason Chandler`s Studio.
