“Let’s go to the town!”, drummer Alex Sowles says in the backstage room of the Loppen venue in Copenhagen. „The town“ in this case is Christianshavn, the neighbourhood around the club, with some nice canals, quiet cobbled streets and cosy bars. One of them, Eiffel Bar, is where we’re heading at for doing an animated session with California-based Ganglians. After ordering a couple of beers the four guys set up their gear in front of the coloured window, surrounded by Eiffel towers, French flags and other francophile memorabilia, and head into “That’s What I Want” from their current album “Still Living”. The crowd in the bar appreciates the surprise gig and gives them a warm applause. After some guitar tuning (the cold outside still makes the guitars go out of tune every two minutes) they get another song to hear: a marvelous rendition of “California Cousins”, where in the end two guys appear outside the window, wondering whether they should go in now. They do, finally, but too late for the Ganglians show.
