“Hey, breaking up is an idea that has occurred to far too few groups. Sometimes to the wrong ones.”
It´s almost four months now since we released the Nazca LP. It´s time to tell you our plans.
Nazca has been a live unit since April 1998. The problem now, is longetivity and obscurity. It´s tricky to move on with new projects when the previous ones never got their dues. Our instinct is to push our babies out into the world and stand by them. By now, we have quite a number of them.
As a creative unit, it´s not healthy to look back.
What we will do now:
We are in the process of making our full back catalogue available online.
We hope to play as many gigs we can this autumn and spring next year.
Then we will stage a final Helsinki burial gig late March 2013.
Then that´s it, we won´t play these songs ever again. We won´t perform under the name Nazca ever again.
It might serve the material and confirm its worth. When everything is freely available all the time, it´s hard to see what´s around you. We love what is unobtainable and ignore what´s here. It´s time we step aside.
There will be no reunions. Nazca is over by 1. April 2013
We have no regrets, we had a great time making the DVD and the last two albums, we are immensely proud of our output.
We never pandered to anyone, we never treated our audience like idiots and we did our best to handle ourselves with friendliness, honesty and integrity.
We´ve been at it for almost 15 years. We might be overstaying our welcome.
We are so grateful to everyone who´s put us up, booked us for shows, bought our records, reviewed them on your website and showed up for gigs. Everyone who´s supplied us food, gas money, beer and shelter. Everyone who came up to talk after a show, all of you that has made Nazca such an immensely pleasant experience.
Thanks go out to (in no particular order):
