Having gotten rid of the experimental urges, there was a period of decent productivity. A six track recording device was procured, and a nameless demo was recorded, which was to be the last one featuring Tosk on vocals. This demo was never released in any way, as it was not exactly of ace quality (as usual). This demo is unfortunately not lost, but it’s doubtful it will ever see the light of day. After archiving this demo with their heads hanging in shame, Geir Love was introduced on the bass, a thing which had been sadly lacking so far. For some reason he never recorded anything with the band, but was involved in rehearsing and making songs which was to become yet another demo, which for some reason was titled Play My Ejaculele. This demo featured eight real songs, with the most powerless and thin sound ever put to tape, despite having bass for the first time in Liklukt history. At this point Tosk had left, so Tapir took over the vocal duties. Some of the songs from Play My Ejaculele were actually re-recorded with new lyrics later on, to be featured on other demos. PME was actually home printed and given away to interested parties, which were very few. The band doesn’t talk about this demo anymore.
With Geir Love gone, Liklukt was yet again the original two-piece, with Cigar on all guitars and bass, and Tapir on drums and vocals, which is the line-up which still remains today. In a sudden burst of inspiration, a new demo was recorded on the old six track device, which was to be the infamous first edition of the Sons of Svalbard demo. The sound of this recording was so bad that Tapir in desperation upgraded to completely new recording gear, and the whole thing was recorded again, this time with somewhat acceptable sound. High on the marginal success of SOS, the band followed up with the result of Cigar’s unnatural fascination of submarines, the Trapped on the Seabed demo. This was a step in the right direction again, and the sea theme followed the band on to the next demo, Into the Deep. All these three demos were printed in 100 copies and given away for free to interested parties. Then came a period of very low productivity, mostly due to logistic challenges. There is a follow-up being recorded as we speak, but progress is slow. This recording is supposed to be a full length, consisting of a re-recording of the entire Into the Deep demo, a re-recording of one track from the Trapped on the Seabed demo, and four new tracks in the same vein. This recording will feature a professional mix, and should be done before the end of 2011.
