In 1998 Françoise Cactus and Brezel Göring made a tour in Japan. Françoise became addicted with a little rabbit called My Melody. It is a little white animal with a red hat, on which it has a huge flower. In Tokyo is a whole shop with My-Melody-merchandise, so she bought tons of items there.
Back in Berlin we decided to call our next record My Melody. The music should be like the rabbit: a lot of melodies, with a cute, soft sound... The sound finally was rougher than expected: We bought an old 8-track-wheel-to-wheel on the flea-market and recorded the whole record in
our flat. The voices where recorded by Miele at the Rauchhaus-Studio in Berlin and the final mix was made by Kurt Dahlke at the Atatak-Studio in Düsseldorf.
Another plan for the record was not to allow instruments bigger than the size of a hand - besides of guitar and drums.
