Pachanga Boys Present: We Are Really Sorry A Roadtrip from Cologne to Cheesetown, Boottown, Coffeetown and back again. Narrated by the truly fantastic Dessagne Twins from Saint-Etienne

After a couple of humble appearances on Kompakt Total compilations and the first trilogy on their own label Hippie Dance which was made out of marimbas, rhymes, time and a mysterious girl named Christine, Pachanga Boys look back in their own history to present their first full-lenght album, an exhaustive recollection of their adventures on and off the road while finding their way to true Pachanga enlightenment... But first, they want you to know that they're really sorry.ÊA psychedelic Western Disco Audio Book was quite clearly the obvious format choice for a tale this colourful, this entrancing, this irresistable, and that's what the Boys – knowing what they know – wanted the experience to be. Formed by Superpitcher and Rebolledo, this tag team is famous for bending time and space, with the boys balancing exotic spices with hearty flavours, enticing any old mood rebel to take a big bite of happiness. Feeling inspired by old country and folk records, they also opted for a narration to link the album tracks, performed by the truly fantastic Dessagne Twins from Saint Etienne. Together with the masterfully staged music, those two give you first-hand impressions of the Pachanga Boys' everyday life spent between Cologne and La Pitaya from 2009 to 2012, a life consisting of big city nights and mountain weekends, strange markets, dubious cantinas and powerful rivers, riding bikes and driving around in German cars. Old machines, a wide range of percussions, vocals and field recordings form the sound palette of this simple story true to the Hippie Dance ethos: freedom before anything and everything goes. Here some testimonies: ÊOnce upon a time, on a sunny day in the beautiful country of Mexico, we found ourselves on the backseat of the Pachanga Mobile... Cruising around the moutains around Xalapa, taking a ride to Boottown, having a snack at Cheesetown and taking a sip at Coffeetown... Aksel put his sunglasses on, Rebolledo turned his superfancy car soundsystem on... After that we can't remember anything... Just a trippy hypnotic outerspace experience throughout hippie claps and dance vibes. We came out of the car not knowing our names anymore and thinking "are these guys humans ?"... The Pachanga Boys said : "We are really sorry". But we said "Thanks... for everything".

- Saschienne Ê When normal people just seeÊYOU,Êthe Pachanga Boys seeÊDOUBLE YOU.ÊThat's right,ÊME is good, but DOUBLE ME is truly fantastic. Dear Pachanga Boys, the Twins were born under your era and, like a prophet, will still be spreading your superfancy stories around the world (even after you retire to Las Vigas). - Julienne & her Truly Fantastic Dessagne Twin from Saint-Etienne Ê If I met a stranger from another planet right now and he would ask me "what is the most exciting and mind-blowing music on earth?", I would tell him "listen to this : Pachanga Boys,ÊWe are really sorry, made in the year twenty twelve". And when I would meet him again a few years later, I'm sure he would tell me "you were right... Pachanga Boys... A possible future." Anonimous
