It all started when Petter got a guitar for Christmas. Most of his friends were in bands and it kind of annoyed him that he wasnÂ´t able to play any instruments. Two months later he had made his first songs and his friend Pål invited him over to record the songs on his fourtrack tape recorder. The recordings soon became a weekly ritual, and every Monday they would continue recording new songs of dubious quality. Pål would sometimes even make his famous lasagne, and when Petter went back to his apartment after an evening of recording, he would not have to eat for days.
The first live show was acoustic at a birthday party for a friendÂ´s older brother. Mads who was known as the loudest drummer in Hordaland joined in playing tambourine and drumming on a cardboard box. Pål played keyboard. The crowd of about 25 were mysteriously quiet, but applauded courteously. The infamous Father Police also played at the birthday party. The second show were at Hulen, which is a 350 capacity venue in Bergen. About 50 people had the pleasure of seeing Petter, Pål (extra guitar) and Mads (drums) playing five songs. With only one rehearsal it must have sounded fairly strange. Mads did not know the songs at all and Petter was excessively drunk.
Silje started in the band playing cello, but when the cello mysteriously disappeared during a thunderstorm she had to play keyboards instead. This autumn she is in Paris where she will study crazy artstuff and unfortunately will not be able to play any shows. Luckily the extraordinarily talented Sgt. Petter will replace her until she comes back. Sgt. Petter will play keyboard, piano and probably some guitar too. He plays on almost every song on the new Professor Pez record so the songs are hopefully familiar to him.
Gro began playing with us after a very late night drinking, when she claimed she could play the cornet. To our surprise she was very good at it too. And she could move around like nobody else in the band. When she is not playing in Professor Pez she does weird experiments on brains. She is also one of Hordalands (our norwegian district) best female armwrestlers.
In addition to this Ingeborg also contributes on the albums singing with her very sensual voice. She was originally recruited as a dancer, but due to stage fright she had to settle with singing on the recordings. She lives a quiet life in a nice blue house and likes to pick flowers.
Our albums are mostly recorded in our livingrooms. All of the persons mentioned above have put a scare into their neighbours whilst housing the recordings of very loud indiepopmusic. Except for Gro who lives in a very dangerous part of town where no one of the others dare to go.
