THE FOOTBALL MATCH ON TV
In October 2008, my friend Francesco rang my bell: “Erlend Øye from Kings of Convenience is at Tinkitè”, our favourite café, just round the corner , “grab your guitar, hurry up!” !
I (Andrea) was in my flat in Ortigia, watching football on TV: I wish that was my job, but it was not, unfortunately: I worked as a graphic and web designer, producing T-shirts through Kalle, together with my friend Angelo Bianca, distributing in some ‘indie’ shops around Italy and online.
Erlend had stayed in Siracusa for a while and used to come regularly, it was great to show him around. It was only a couple of years later, when Erlend moved to Siracusa, that we decided to start a merchandising project for Kings of Convenience.
