Q - "NRG"
Jens and Brother Toby's first own artist record release.
These 12 songs are written and produced by the Gad Brothers.
Jens was fascinated by Prince these days, the "Minneapolis sound" was his focus, other artists like "St.Paul", "The Time", "Sheila E.", were amongst his favourites.
Everething was done on Frank Farian's 3M and Sony 32 track digital multitrack machines. samples were edited on the samplers but then recorded. mixes were done from the multitracks onto 2 dedicated mixing tracks on that same tape.
Jens' distorted guitar sound was produced by a modified blaupunkt tube radio.
Frank was interested in Jens' advanced production and recording methods. vocals were recorded through a dictaphone
or a drum mic. This album - especially the tune 'don't pull me down' were heard by funk legend george clinton who ordered the 2 brothers on his stage on one of his gigs. also prince has heard their stuff and was intererested - so the rumours go.
