The cd, Bibelpreik, was recorded at Sigmunds Groove Farm, an MC-club in the outskirts of Haugesund which also included Oddny Regina Larsen, Åse Johnsen, Per Bachman Jakobsen, Nina Cecilie Eikeland, Christine Larsen and Kirsten Kvinnesland. In the summer of 92 Bibelpreik was released. During this time Harry had moved to Oslo working with the videomedia and a video for Oddnys Sang was made by him and Svein Morten Hagen. The first limited and numbered edition of 600 sold quickly out and a second and third edition was made while Askild, Oddny and Kirsten came over to live with Harry and record the cd Pisspreik in Bootleg Studio in Oslo.
Guestmusician on this release was Andrej D Nebb under the pseudonym "Macaroni" of DePress and Holy Toy fame, a polish artist living in Oslo with huge succsess with his own projects who has known Harry since 1984 and by accident came into the studio to talk to Kirsten. The next release came out in Norway on the highly acclaimed label dBut. Høgdapreik was the cds name and it included the famous norwegian telephoneterrorist Svend Høgda,- going out and in of scandinavian prisons the last 25 years for terrorizing the norwegian police after an incident where he was very badly beaten by the police the telephone became his choice of revenge on the police. Now the policeacademy in Oslo calls fake phones to the police for Høgdameldinger(Høgdamessages).
This release was declared genius in the aftenpostens morningpaper but when the eveningpaper came out it was clear something shitty was going on as it then had a very negative article on the groups collaboration with Svend Høgda and the whole estblished recordindustry take distance from it and after Høgdapreik had been one day in the shop the dBut, the label recived a letter signed by 17 high court lawyers from one big lawfirms in Norway on behalf of the label Sonet demanding to recall the cds from shops in two days or "serious" action would be taken upon dBut. Between the lines it was threathening the label with huge economical sanctions. The reason for this was the top of the cover which was a parody of the classical german label Deutsche Grammophon Schallplatten logo which Sonet had the distrubutionrights for in Norway. So there were no other option for dBut than take back all the distributed cds from the shops.
There was a lot of great press for Høgdapreik but the momentum was off course gone long before dBut could agree with Sonet on how to cover the DGS-logo. It took about two weeks before the album was out in the shops again,. this time with a big black CENCORED-sticker (with the cheapest glue at the market). This was off course a big financial drawback for Per Platous label dBut (which he later idealistically gave away for free with the backcatalogue to the people around the Palace Of Pleasure). Oral Constitution gave in 97 out a 12" picture disc with a real terrorist - Souhaila Andrawes http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suhaila_Sayeh (the only surviving member of the 1977 PFLP Mogadishu hijacking of a Lufthansa flight 181 after GSG 9 stormed it-the pictures of her-bloodied and shot on a stretcher carried out on a stretcher showing the V-sign).
It was this failed hijacking who led to the suicides of the RAF members Andreas Bader, Gudrun Ensslin and Jan-Carl Raspe at the JVA Stuttgart- Stammheim prison. Some say they were executed some say they killed them selves. The album was pressed in a very limited edition and sold quickly out. That was their last release until they were invited by noise-legend Lasse Marhaug to contribute to a 2 x MC compilation dedicated to the norwegian MC-movement during the 80s.
It was a part of an exhibition curated by Marhaug of the tapemovement in Lydgalleriet gallery based in USF Verftet Bergen. The exhibition was open from 15 oct 10 to 14 nov 2010. The track is called Six Minutes and the compilation is called Kassett. This time Askild & Harry joined forces with ex-Aarabrots Jon Øvstedal.
