Thanks! It's good to hear that the guys I wrote the site for, love the site. Gunnar loved it as well.

Now that I got you answering my letters, maybe you can answer some of the questions in the following letter. I wrote it a while back to the both of you, and never got any response on it and since I believe you are more of the creater of the duo, maybe the letter is more for you anyway.


Just wanted to let you know that I listened to the sound bytes to your new album that are available on your website. I wanted to know who sung the lead in 'Freak Like Me'? I LOVE that song. It's so unlike anything I've heard of yours. In fact, the whole album is a different sound for you. I think it's great that you guys can change you style so much. You guys have played everything from pop to rock to country to 50's classics (with your dad's stuff), now this (I don't even know what to call it -- funk?) It's neat that your audiences are a variety of different types of people of all ages. I love you you reach out to different audiences with your variety. I feel that it shows that you are true, talented musicians.

I love that you took some of your older songs and funked them out a little as well. It's neat to hear a different sound to the same lyrics.

I was wondering what inspires your lyrics? Also, is there any musicians out there that you may idolize or any musician that inspires your style?

Part of the reason why I ask is because alot of what you've done in a way reminds me of alot of what Bon Jovi had done, except that your music style is different in alot of ways. But look what he did with the song 'Living on a Prayer' and totaly twisted the sound and came up with 'Prayer '94'. Another thing, when I heard 'Why Oh Why', I was like, "this sounds real familiar, like I heard it before from a different artist." And I thought maybe Bon Jovi so I played back his album, Crush, and I thought that 'Why Oh Why' sounded sort of similar to 'Captian Crash and the Beauty Queen From Mars' in the way it starts out, but after playing back 'Why Oh Why' the chorus is quite different.

Anyway, wanted to let you know that I REALLY LOVE the new album, and I can't wait till it comes out. I've already got it on my Christmas List ;).

Much love and affection,
