Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Winterhalter started as a bedroom project back in the metaphyical 50's. Shaun was seduced by Jerry Cornelius in his room and started to work songs into a sweat. After developing an addiction to music, he found solace in Tower record's mid-90's slogan "no music no life". He then proceeded to ruin most relationships because of release dates and deep insightful lyrics.
Following the fantastic 50's, in the 70's the I-ndie music boom brought to Singapore 100SGD copies of coldplay's rare EP. Shaun "shit" Soh ( as he was known after a knighting by Eldric, after his adventures with jerry cornelius) decided to start a rock group.
It was not until the 80's when the boom was at its most ripe, that he found the rest of the memebrs that would join this group. Nick was in a Record store in Ang Mo kio, comtemplating buying nirvana's bleach for the 100th time. This was because NIck being a tunesmith was very particular about Mastering quality of "lovebuzz".
As for Daren and Marcus they had joined this music group with as much reason as the smell of rubbish.
In the 90's the group (shaun and nick) went through several hardships, moving spices to and fro, junk ships enroute for the antarctic expeditions. Daren had been a student at Miskatonic University until an experiment concerning supersitions testing in coffeeshops kitchens set him broken.
He was found hungrily chewing on dried chillis to quench his hunger. Shit and Nick had to distract him with a pack of marcs and spencer's vinegar chips in order to be restrained. After being left alone, Daren regained his full abilities of speech and thought. his first words were: "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn". Although puzzled, Shaun and nick were able to identify the phrase as one used by crazed students at Miskatonic University.
The three of them met marcus in a small spanish restaurant al fresco. They had gone there to look for demon babies who had fed on their mothers, Marcus (who had a strange inclination to chewing carrots with whiskey) was one of the first to bring an angel baby instead at the frustration of the three.
After an hour of conversation. It was decided that Jerry Cornelius was right. That rock music has its place in our hearts.
The name winterhalter was chosen after herbs that were found along serangoon road, there were used by the Niephites, who were a group of urban naturalists (concrete being part of mother natures' bosom) to attain higher states of consciousness caused by total damage to frontal lobes. Long term usage cased total corpus callosuem degradation.
The name comes from the season "winter" and the attractive "halter" top that ladies wore during the 1920's to celebrate the Tiet holidays in the northern most mountain vietnamese tribes.
