And now it's official.... [Mar. 9th, 2006|02:04 pm]
Ross Tregenza
It's with a heavy heart that I have an announcement for you...

After six years of wonderful chaos, I've decided to retire Goteki. We've had an amazing time, met awesome people and travelled all around the world. We'd like to thank all of you, for making Goteki the crazy rock n roll adventure that it was.

Our final performance will be at Elektrofest 2006 on the 30th of April, so we hope to see some of you troopers there.

Why? Because as the Hagakure says, a timely, dignified end is important in all things.

Will we be back? I wouldn't be surprised, but not as Goteki. We're addicted to music and I doubt I'll be able to walk away from it. Whatever happens in the future though, this IS the end of Goteki.

Thankyou phuturestars, and goodbye.

Ross Tregenza, Goteki
March 9 2006.

I'm sorry to hear of the end of Goteki, but glad that is was a worthwhile time for you. I am glad that we will have the honour of playing with you at your last gig, and we will do our best to ensure the send off is huge!

In the future I look forward to hearing any of your future projects.

All good things must end when they have run their course. The light that shines twice as bright burns half as long.

Shall hopefully see you at Elekrofest. Can you play Eye of the Tiger again and I can pretend it was Norwich with the sound cutting out again :]

Rest in peace, Goteki. We still love you.

Anyways, best of luck for any upcoming ideas or projects, which I'm pretty sure you already have. All of you.

This makes me sad.

Goteki has put some amazing music out there and that music is
not going anywhere. It is a strange thing to mourn a band's
potential and future releases.

But, you know, ends are just new beginnings. Goteki was
wonderful but the music doesn't live in a band name or lineup.

Now, I look forward to seeing what comes from you in the years

In a very selfish way I'm glad I only missed the last year or so.
It's kinda' sad though. Whilest I don't think you should stop making music in any way shap or form I do think you lost faith in Goteki.
I think hitting restart is a very healthy thing to do, it can only shake you up and make you more creative. No baggage, no expectations, just the music you wanna' do!

No way?! This cannot be allowed to go on. This moment of temporary maddness must be squashed before it's too late!
What about the new E.P? Will that still be coming out?

I'd love it if you could send me a track. Your favorite :)

I can't get into any of the music on your site.
