    As written on our webpage news section:

    After 6 years of playing together Farmakon part ways with guitarist Lassi Paunonen, without any dramatics involved. No replacing member is planned at the moment. The third album, carrying a working title "Syan", will be composed by the remaining trio. Second live guitar will be handled by Kim Wirzenius.

    No need to be sad. We aren't. And I don't think Lassi is either!

    Deal.

    We won't though, but you can always be sad.

    Would an acoustic MCD do.... ?

    We could make one. Guys? Let's make that acoustic set and record the songs!!! Then put it out free.

    I for one am all for it (an acoustic EP)! I wouldn't spit on some acoustic shows either... ;)

    Actually an acoustic EP would be awesome. Then again I'm a Farmakon fanboy so I'll say that whatever you do, even if it's utter shit. Which it won't be. But, you know.

    A slight problem is we wouldn't be able to use the 'Glimpse songs, which should make better acoustic versions

    Naah, I'm pretty sure there was the regular "No recording these songs for another label during next 5 years"-part. I think we have that one in the new contract also.

    You think you have it? Good gods, man, I didn't get where I am today by thinking I have things.

    And if so, just write some new AWG-esque songs. Call them things like "Rockery", "Fog", "Similar" and "Most Certainly Not Of Amoebas In Any Way Shape Or Form".

    :lol: Oh man Rusty! You somehow always manage to make my day with your witty humour and undesputed charm... How gay did that sound? Well I meant it anyway.

    That 5 years is almost past now. Besides, Guardians of Mankind recorded Gamma Ray songs which Imperiumi records published with the permission of the writers and label. I'm pretty sure something could be sorted out. At least we should ask Lee or something.

    Hmm.. Let me add some pointers:

    1) I want absolutely no contact with Earache
    2) All the publicing rights to the songs are theirs anyway, making a real MCD for sale would benefit them.
    3) However, making acoustic versions to be released unofficially in internet.. why not :heh: I don't think they'd care anyway.
    4) Then again, if we'd make official acoustic versions only of Robin songs (+ maybe a few new originals), we'd have all the rights for them and we might benefit something out of it.

    It would be fun to play acoustic versions live. But there's this little drawback, that none of us owns a decent acoustic guitar...

    Oh, now I know how this works..

    You could always record a kind of double-EP thing, release the Robin + new songs as one paid-for EP and do an unofficial online release of the AWG songs as a second EP with a Paypal account set up for if any kindly souls wish to make a donation to the band, especially since the proceeds of that would go straight to you and not a label/distributor... but maybe that's too much hassle to do.

    At the moment it'll most likely be a about four songs, of which maybe one remake of a Robin song. Others would be completely new. Unless we'd "acoustisize" The Prism as Matti suggested :loco:

    So, Lassi leaves Farmakon... barely a mayfly's lifespan later, Peter leaves Opeth, the band from which Farmakon stole all their ideas... I smell something suspicious. Out with it, boys.
