Is this the best it gets...

According to his blog former Budapest frontman John Garrison is currently writing songs with Danish singer/songwriter Mads Langer. Budapest (?) you might ask? Aside being the capital of Hungary, Budapest was a British band that in the early 00’s released a fabulous single called Is This The Best It Gets? and a pretty decent album (though it didn’t fully meet my expectations) named Too Blind To Hear. In case you’re not familiar with Mads Langer either, he burst onto to the Danish music scene in 2005 with the beautiful and emotional debut single The Breaking News, which (I believe) was written as a response to the 7 July 2005 London Bombings. And this year his cover of the Olive track You’re Not Alone has been getting massive airplay in Denmark. Anyway; it should be interesting to see and hear what comes out of this rather intriguing collaboration!

the album came out in 2002 - isn't that the early 00's or should we make a compromise and call it mid-00's??? ;-)
