Out of these 6300 and 8500 views, I wonder what percentage of those were from Mike and Si_mon.

Seriously - nobody cares. It's not funny, and it never was. You're embarrasing yourselves.

I know, we don't take ourselves serious too. At least not anymore. We were 15 when we started The 004 and really enjoyed recording music
as teenagers. Lighthouse was recorded for my father who has a aggressive from of a brain tumor. This year is about
celebrating our friendship (with the photo book and compilation CD), because we had a happy time in the band. It's also an emotional year
because Lighthouse is very special and personal for us.

Will there be any signed copies available? Maybe a special limited edition with a vial of the sand Janet used in the I Hate This Part video?

Janet: “There was quite a fuss about my sand scene. I had to play supposedly angry and I rubbed the
sand just over my body. And if you look how they made the scene in slow motion, it looks like there’s coming milk
or chocolate milk out of my boob or something.”

Exclusive interview with Kelly from The 004!

Image

What are your feelings celebrating 10 years of The 004, do you still love singing?

Yes, I still love singing! I can't believe it's been 10 years already. Time went by so fast. It feels like yesterday that we were recording in Mike's bedroom a.k.a. Mike records.

That's a long time indeed! People from all around the world got excited hearing your voice again on the Lighthouse song released on YouTube and Twitter this summer. What is your favourite thing about being a bandmember?


My favourite thing is sharing these moments and making memories together. That you could look back and say to eachother "Do you remember...?".

What song would you like to cover next, or are you planning on returning to writing your own songs?

At the moment I don't have any plans. I still enjoy music and listen to it everyday.

What kind of music do you like best? Is it something slower and more emotional, or faster on the dancefloor?

Both. It depends on my mood!

Image

What inspired classic compositions such as Desert Sand? You have always been a very skilled songwriter, is it something that comes naturally or takes a lot of time?

My inspiration comes from feelings and emotions. Music is a great way to express yourself. Not just a love story, but also having a good time with friends. It can be serious, but it doesn't have to be. And that's what I love about music. It comes naturally. You shouldn't force writing.

Which is your favourite 004 song and what is your top song ever by any artist?

My favourite 004 song is Get Sexy. The song is fun, the video looks good and I think as a group it was a turning point. It just became a little more and better! I don't have a top song, because there are too many top songs, haha!

How about the Mike & Kelly duet? It was very interesting having the two pillars of the 004 doing a song together. Is it something that could happen again in the future?

It was fun, but not something we'll do again anytime soon.

Alright. You mentioned Get Sexy as your favourite song. Many love I Hate This Part for it's video, but which video is your favourite and how would you describe the creative process of making an 004 video?

For favourite video also Get Sexy, haha! It was the first video we made with help from the outside. And let's be honoust, with the green screen and everything, it just looks really cool. Especially if you think about how we started.

When you made a temporary split from The 004, what motivations were behind this heartbreaking decision and what on earth convinced you to return to the group after all?


At one point the 004 felt more like a commitment than just having fun with music. So I decided to temporary stop and wait until it felt good to be in the group again. It should feel natural and not forced.

Thank you for this great opportunity to interview you, Kelly! As a final note, what advice would you give to young aspiring musicians based on your experience?

Fill your heart with love and kindness and stay true to yourself!

Let's celebrate the release of Greatest Memories together! This book has probably been the longest and most difficult project for Mike to write, consisting of carefully crafted text written in collaboration with the other bandmembers. Spread over 80 pages featuring high quality photographs , this book is also accompanied by brand new soundtrack TEN (2015) meant to be listened to while reading.

Please PM me or Mike if you are interested in ordering this book. A brand new interview featuring the legendary queen Janet will also be released soon!
