margaret's hope - 2 Songs

I've wanted to upload some of our stuff for a long time now, so it feels that now is a better time than never. These two songs date back to the year 2006, and they were recorded entirely by ourselves (well, by Alex, to be honest).
You can stream them right on this page, no need to download anything. I hope you like this music which we created about 3 years ago, which is actually a very long time, especially considering that we didn't keep up with it. I am back in Taiwan now, and so everybody is in a different place. Still, I treasure these few pieces that serve as footprints to what life felt like in our adolescence, the things we valued the most. And I admit that I am still dreaming of a life grounded in arts, musics, and simply doing the things that you love to do... If all else fails, then at least having my own bar and having other people perform, play music or theater. And - why not in Taiwan?
These two songs are called "Phürditsch" and "The Fine Art of Balancing Nine-Inch Squared Balls (In One Hand, While Standing on the Other)", they are not the best we wrote but were easiest to record at the time when I was about to leave the country for Taiwan in 2006.

這是我之前在德國之樂團的兩首歌,style 大概可以描寫是後搖滾樂或所謂 Emo,可是我們卻沒有歌手。 樂團名稱 margaret's hope,這個名字來自我以前喝過的印度紅茶,產生地田就叫為 margaret's hope,好像以前老闆娘之名字。 我只覺得名字聼起來很不錯,而且讓聽者想到 "Margaret 是誰呢? 是不是因爲失戀而寫歌?" 呵呵。
我很希望你們會喜歡,歡迎留言! 我也很想繼續做音樂,不過我正在臺灣, 其他樂團員都住不同的地方,事實期望不能太正式。
兩首名稱為 "Phürditsch" (不是真字,我們亂寫我們德文方言一個説法,意思大概翻成 "For You") 和 "The Fine Art of Balancing Nine-Inch Squared Balls" (開始的吉他 riff 我在瑞典想出來的,而夜裏時不斷地彈,也許腦死我的室友 ;)。
