Q from memami04: Did you feel comfortable by doing Demos at Tits&ass again. Or do you like doing songs without Demos anymore?

Since I’m writing a bit for Marie there has to be some kind of demo around. I love doing simple ones at T&A.

Q from shneedelwoods: Writing songs & making demos? Solo stuff or brilliant new rox material? any plans yet?

I’m writing for Roxette, myself and GT. You never know what’s gonna happen, do you? Better be prepared….

Q from RoxAnna1978: how do you feel abot the songs (demos) you have recorded now-do they sound good?

Do they sound good? Are you joking?

Q from elcondetin: What’s your mood nowadays in the demo writing/recording world.. uptempo slow -mid? How feels writing for Marie again? natural?

Nothing’s changed. I write anything. Anything to please me. Been writing some duets though (for a change).

Writing songs down in St Tropez.

Another day at Tits & Ass. 3 great chords, 3 great songs. MP is pumping out his talent as always.

  1. I did something similar on my site, but with news articles regardinings new album. Gather these Per´s comments is also clever idea. Will link this article to my site too. 😉

  2. @Sascha

    Well, why not? We still are not sure how many tweets/pics/clips will be while recording, so it’s still unknown how much space it will take. But I do hope there is much more to come and it will be cool to read it once again when the album will be out! Would love to also get much more in-depth diary from Per – for exemple which song was recroded when and in what kind of version. That would be something!

    And as we all know – Per writes such diary and even draws there. Scans, Man, scans! 😀
