After some concerts in 1997 presenting songs from "Art of Complex Simplicity", Harald and Jostein asked some of the musicians to form a new Kerrs Pink. The first line-up was with Freddy Ruud (keyboards) ex-Electric Wonderland, Per Øyvind Nordberg (keyboards) ex-Kerrs Pink and Knut R. Lie (drums) ex-Høst.
Per Øyvind left the band just after a few rehearsels because of his job situation.
Next one out was Lasse Johansen (keyboards) - a very qualified piano and organ player. Freddy asked his old playmate in Electric Wonderland - Lasse Tanderø to be the new vocalist. From 2000 an excellent vocalist called Tracee Meyn guested Kerrs Pink on concerts and on the Tidings release. Tracee is originally from Los Angeles and have her vocals on a couple of Steve Vai CDs, then called Tracee Jones.

The Tidings CD released in 2002 contained 3 long compositions from Harald  and from Freddy. The seventh song Le Sable s`est Écoulé was a layered song mixed by Harald at his home and it was created just from a soundcheck drumtrack. Keyboard-parts from Hour Glass, some strange vocals from Lasse and Tracee and speeches from Martin Luther King and John F. Kennedy was pasted in different places.

Jostein, Freddy and Lasse Tanderø came up with the lyrics.
Kerrs Pink made a lot of improvisations on the rehearsels in the first 2 years in 1998-2000. They had a lot of fun! And if you want, you can here some of the stuff below. Taped on a cassette-recorder...
