Growing Smaller – the missing song

•June 10, 2014 • Leave a Comment

Back in 1997 we recorded 14 songs for the Growing Smaller album. One of them didn’t quite seem to fit the track order and we weren’t totally happy with the chorus so only 13 songs made the album.

Some things just take time – after 17 years of incubation we proudly present: The Clown

The chorus backing vocals were re-recorded in June 2014. Everything else is from the original sessions in 1997. The mixing & mastering were done faithfully to the vibe of the Growing Smaller album.

New editor on the team

Besides playing, a musicians life is filled with daily chores such as replacing molten bass strings, swapping charred drum heads and optimizing the aerodynamics of guitar picks. All that maintenance work leaves very little time for the all-important task of being visible in the media. We thought we could use some help bringing Trusties-related news to all the modern media including Facebook. Therefore we decided to hire a long-time fan to run the Facebook show for us.

Please welcome Mr. Teemu Pennala – our new Facebook editor!

Shocking news: Suti got fired! Or did he quit?

•September 14, 2012 • 2 Comments

The public fighting has begun, soon moving to the court room.

The band had this to say: “Suti is such a big diva, he didn’t fulfill his part of the toilet cleaning duties at the studio. His equipment rack was such a mess with all those unreliable tc electronic and Mesa/Boogie boxes and it was so heavy that he couldn’t lift it by himself, always needing someone to help drag it around”.

Suti responds: “You guys didn’t share the pizza fairly at the backstage, the shrimps belong to the fastest player, everybody should know that, especially the bass player! “.

Bass player clarifies: “No, that was the deal with the salami. There were only three shrimps, besides.”

Suti: “F..k it, I QUIT!”

The band: “You hog all the shrimps at Aquaplan gigs anyway, so YOU’RE FIRED!!”
