Eirik and Finn from Twigs teamed up with Halldis from Side Effects and Markus from Paynbird to make some new and wonderful music. The band recorded several songs during the winter of 2005/2006. A three track single was released in April, featuring the songs Six Point Eight, Heart of Mine and Where the Fools are Haunted. In March 2006 Terje joined the band on guitar and keyboards. Later that year, Eirik sadly left the band. Heart of Mine was featured on the compilation cd "Bergen Rock City Vol 2", who was released in China. 10 000 copies were made for distribution there.
In May 2007 the "Six Point Eight ep" was released in China. On the ep you'll find the three songs from the first single plus Angelkisses, Token and I Want the Sun. In April 2007 Terje left the band to move to Canada. New man on guitar was Stig, a brilliant guitarist who can play some wild and noisy stuff, but also melodic when needed.
The band started to record a full length album in 2008, hoping for a cd release in 2009, but boy were they wrong! The cd was delayed for nearly four years due to major life changing events in the band members life. Over the last four years they have clocked up five births, five weddings and one funeral.
These major events have been the inspiration for the music on the cd. The title, "Colours Gone Cold", referes to the overwhelming changes that happen during our journey through life. From birth, love, illness and death. It deals with the choices we have to make and the sacrifices this brings. The last song, Materfamilias, written by the bands bass player is a personal tribute to his mother who passed away far too early. The cd has been dedicated to her.
Most of the songs were recorded in Tinnitus studio in Bergen, with Bjarte Ludvigsen as the engineer. My Misspent Youth had som help from good friends during the recording process, on vocals, keyboard/samples and drums.
In 2013 the band went to play in Glasgow and Edinburgh, which was great fun.
2018 finally saw the release of a new song.
