2 by bukowski released their first single with Kid Moxie Hot Summer for Inner Ear Records. Watch the video on Blog della Musica…

Greek born, Berlin based duo 2 by bukowski have returned with their first new music since 2005’s Yzordderex, Hot Summer / Beast’s Breath is the first of three 7″ singles the band will be releasing this year. Available now from Inner Ear Records.

Let’s go back in a time for a bit, before 2 by bukowski had a name, before the Wire Nightmare, before even the infamous “Practice Session 0” at Studio N between George, John and Nik.

It was sometime in 1996 and a band called Tiger had released a single called “My Puppet Pal”. George had just bought the record and brought it over to John’s place to listen to. The single came with a sticker of its cover which George gave to John who stuck it on his white Aria bass. For that reason that bass has since been and is still known as The Tiger. At some point, after having used it on several 2bb recordings, John upgraded his bass and gave The Tiger to Achilles who was cheap and would take whatever you gave him.

A few years down the line Achilles passed The Tiger on to his cousin. The cousin eventually moved to L.A. and became the very keen musician Kid Moxie, all thanks to The Tiger’s magical powers. It’s Kid Moxie’s voice you hear on “Hot Summer”. So it goes with full circles and so it goes with magical musical instrument folklore.

2 by bukowski current members are Achilles Charbilas and George Malamidis.

Testo Hot Summer – 2 by bukowski

Broken watch, lazy clock wasting time
Laying round dreaming bout when you were mine
She said, goodbye to the city and hello boys
Now she playing blues piano in an ice cream joint

Hot summer, you caught someone else’s heart
Hot summer, you caught someone else’s heart

Homecoming queen yay hold her a parade
Wholesome, lonesome, but make sure she’s awake
She’s got a thousand yard stare and a hundred degrees
A devil on your shoulder and an angel in jeans

Hot summer, you caught someone else’s heart
Hot summer, you caught someone else’s heart

We had a dream
I don’t want to wake
We had our time
We had our day
I wish it was
I wish it was
I wish it was longer
Open your eyes
I don’t want to wake
We had our time
We had our day
I wish it was
I wish it was
I wish it was longer
