Blood Red Moon.
Performed by The Hives.
Written by Randy Fitzsimmons especially for Swedish movie Cirkeln (The Circle) from RMV Films. The movie (and books) tells the story of young witches in a made up town that bears an uncanny resemblance to The Hives native Fagersta.
Black And White band! Black And White photos! A no brainer really.
The exquisite binder of paper and ink that you currently hold in your hands is the first ever issue of THE MONOCHROME CHRONICLE (yes, all capitals). It contains (you guessed it) black and white images and words from Yours Truly, all-time-fave-international-stand-up-guys-and-rock-sensations The Hives and we hope it is the first in a long series of similar products. The idea is to well...discover different corners of Hive Manor, See the Hives crowd as they await their heroes, See The Hives play scrabble or enjoy a cold lager. To show off The Hives in all our motionless Black and White glory in images that may not be accessible to the average Joe/Jane, and have The Hives write a few words to go along while we re at it. The possibilities are endless and the endless possibilities are exciting ! The only thing limiting our creativity is the fact that the page is flat.
Our sincere hope is that this will be a way for us to feel connected to you, Dear Fan, when we are not touring, screaming in your faces, sweating on you or sprinkling your ear canals with sonic shockwaves made of 24 carat monochrome rainbows. So let this be something to have and to hold that you can keep after all your hard drives have crashed. Real shit. Like the love letters between your parents that are not a long deleted email thread. Long live this physical object made from the trunks of trees and the ink of squids.
