      Everything's fake if it's real, no one taught me how to feel.

    Influences and Teachers:
    For my rock stuff: Dinosaur Jr., Velvet Underground, Sunn O))), Mr. Bungle, Peter Brötzmann, Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band, Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention, Syd Barrett, Low, Tool, Tortoise, Earth, Ween

    For my folk stuff: Espers, Feathers, Leonard Cohen (his early stuff), Nick Drake, Will Oldham, Sibylle Baier, Syd Barrett, Low, Eric's Trip

    For my electronic stuff: The Knife, Fever Ray, The Third Eye Foundation. Portishead (Third), Coil, Sunn O))), Earth (the early stuff), Low

    It all intertwine somewhat though.

    (I am perfectly aware that neither Sun O))) and Earth or Low are electronic bands. Non the less Sunn O))) and the early Earth are one of my main influences for the experimental ambient and noise stuff I do, and generally a lot of my own tracks are inspired by the mood Low creates with their songs.)

    Hobbies and Interests:
    Music, art and role playing in WoW

    Releases:

    Old projects I was a part of:

    Janosch - Inhere Outhere (EP)

    Janosch - Holesong (Featuring on the compilation Danelectro)

    Menfolk - Double Date (Split single with The Unit)

    Menfolk - Are we enemies (Split EP with Barra Head)

    (Menfolk - Colossus (Album, where I helped compose a few tracks but didn't record anything))

    You won't find much of this on YouTube but if you do a search for Janosch on Last.fm, Menfolk on Bandcamp, or use Spotify or similar you'll find it.

    In Janosch I did bass, lead guitar, backing vocals, contributed to the compositions as well as some additional lyrics.

    In Menfolk I played one of the two basses as well as contributed to the compositions and some lyrics .


    And my latest projects- the first is a duo that beside me consist of Jackie Rasmusen, the last three mentioned are solo projects consisting of home recordings:

    Electro Jar

    Jacob Læby

    Flystyrt

    ...and for such a long time


    Which can be found, listened to and downloaded for free on Bandcamp. Further more some releases can be found on Spotify and similar online music services.

    (For various stuff composed and recorded by me check out my SoundCloud page: Jacob Læby's profile - Listen to music)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    To feel the bass, you must think like the bass, be the bass, become one with the bass.

    Stop trying to play the bass and let the bass play you instead!

    Do what the music dictates you to do shall be the whole of the law.

    Also remember rhythm is the path to the low side.
    Rhythm leads to the melody.
    The melody leads to joy.
    Joy leads to love.

    Love is the law, love for the music.

    Signature

    Jacob Læby
