Kamchatka Mysteria Just Gets Eerier

In yesterday’s blog we wrote how our XaW Files search for our Andy Wolfhol had reached Kamchatka a few months after Kamchatka the band released their fifth album, called The Search Goes On.

X Files Style Mystery

Hi, it’s Wolf Whitzer, intrepid investigative newshound at the satirical comedy Greenygrey News (GNN) inspired by Wolf Blitzer in the CNN world.

The X Files style mystery deepened upon further investigation into Kamchatka the Swedish rock band, as their fourth album’s cover looks as if it foresaw the greenYgrey rebranding that was recently revealed.

The album cover features three totem poles, as the greenYgrey became three colours, and the three colours of the greenYgrey are all there: green, yellow and grey.

The Greenygrey Alibi

Suspicion for the greenYgrey cover entering the human world might fall on the greenYgrey in the human world.

However, the Greenygrey world was divided in 2011, with Grey spending it all exiled Down Under in a story documented in the legendary Werewolf of Oz epic virtual ramble across all the regions of Australia. It started 2011 in the Northern Territories, and ended the year in N.S.W. Meanwhile, Green was fighting for freedom in Blighty.

In fact, I found the fingerprints of a werehippo rather than a werewolf when I followed the clues trail to Wikipedia, as the cover art layout and design of Bury Your Roots (2011) is credited to Hippograffix.

Significance of Three to the Mystery

Investigating all the Kamchatka albums I made the elementary induction that there are three members of the band, and there are three individual subjects or objects on all of their five album covers.

So the three has been a consistent symbol for Kamchatka albums, with that significance most likely explained by the band consisting of three: Roger Öjersson – lead vocals & bass, Thomas “Juneor” Andersson – lead vocals & guitar and Tobias Strandvik – drums.

Colours of the greenYgrey

The five Kamchatka albums have a variety of colours. The first featured three birds in an orangeyred sky; the second had three octopuses in a blueygrey sea; the third had three balloons in a yellowygrey sky and the fifth has three divers in a blueygrey sea.

Moreover, there are other colours featured on the album covers which could also claim significance.

However, as the X Files usually had a little feature still unexplained at the end of each episode, the only album to be mostly greenYgrey was the one released around the time the greenYgrey rebranding was gathering pace.

Moreover, the greenYgrey rebranding had been finalised before the fifth Kamchatka album had been released.

Scullymulder used to think the truth is out there. Kamchatka are still searching, and so is the Greenygrey… in Kamchatka.

Here’s Kamchatka in some old style Greenygrey action:

Chicken or Egg, Pea and Mushroom Soup

Hi it’s Wolfgang.  No, our headline is not a breakfast, lunch or brunch menu, it’s to do with a couple of intriguing greenygrey questions I’ve been mulling over.  And the mull refers to thinking rather than drinking; it’s a bit early for a that traditional Christmas tipple.

Greenygrey Weather: Chicken or Egg First Type Dilemma

With greenygrey weather dominating much of Britain and Europe at the moment, with green and grey joined as one for most of the last few days, I was wondering if such greenygrey weather preceded the greenygrey, or if the greenygrey was created before such green and grey weather.

I didn’t get very far I’m afraid, and it will have to remain an unexplained greenygrey mystery.

Why Pea Souper?

And it also got me wondering why foggy weather received the name ‘pea-souper’ back in the 19th century, as it looks more grey and mushroomy than green and peay.

So I looked that up on Wikipedia, and it explained that a pea soup fog ‘is a type of visible air pollution, a thick and often yellowish smog caused by the burning of soft coal.’

Answering the Question, Questioning the Answer

So, I have learned something today.  Although pea soup isn’t usually yellow, I guess that it was the closest to a yellow soup there was at that time.

Now, I wonder which came first, the mushroom or the pea?
