The material and compositions in the record, where created during the duo’s live performances in the course of the past 5 years, the improvisations and experimentations with their instruments’ naturally produced sounds while referring to and drawing inspiration from american sic-fi writer Philip K. Dick’s short-stories.

* HORSELOVER FAT is Phillip K. Dick’s alter ego in his book “VALIS”
Philip is a given name, derived from the Greek Φίλιππος (Philippos, meaning: “horse-loving” or “fond of horses”)
Dick (in German) translates into FAT
