We've enjoyed an incredible musical journey, since first being introduced to one another, on-line, back in 2009. Twelve albums in six years. Yep. That's pretty incredible.
The funny thing is, "on-line" is not only how we met, it's also how we've put together every song we've collaborated on, since that initial encounter. The two of us have never shared the same space, at the same time, out in the "real world". The group, Gypsies in Cyberspace, lives in...well...cyberspace.
Cyberspace is where we gather; it's where we communicate; it's where we create the music that keeps drawing us back to one another, because our collective Muse demands it. And this modern miracle called the Internet makes it all possible. That's the way things have to be when one of us lives in Glasgow, Scotland, and the other makes his home in the good, ol' U.S. of A.
From that perspective, we may be one of the purest "techno-bands" that ever existed. Technology created us, seven years ago...and technology has sustained us, ever since.
But we're a techno-band in modis operandi, only. Musically, we're anything but. Our governing philosophy, creatively, is: "Go wherever the song takes you." It's a philosophy that's led us down a myriad of musical paths, as the fourteen songs comprising this collection demonstrate.
We're also extremely fortunate, in that several amazing musicians have accompanied us, at various times, on our many musical excursions and explorations. They drift in and out, also Gypsy-like, through our creative endeavors. Three of them show up in various tracks on this "Greatest Misses" compilation. That talented trio is listed below, down near the bottom of this page. Thanks, guys. Your contributions are always welcome...and greatly appreciated.
We have no idea what our next album will be, or what types of music it will contain, but you can bet it will be forthcoming. That's the fascinating thing about Muses. They won't be denied.
In the meantime, we give you our "Greatest Misses: Volume 2". Enjoy...
Kev (Scotland) and Jack (U.S.A.)
