about

Calling his solo project 'MyKungFu', this singer/songwriter talks of the heart's plate tectonics and muses about the deafening calm of lost love. Domi Schreiber's compositions on 'romantic archeology' dig continuously into the many layers of romance
and bring up almost a dozen of intricate musical artifacts.
Domi Schreiber considers the eleven Songs on 'romantic archeology' as just a snapshot and keeps continuously reinventing his music on stage with varying formations. Performing as a duo he receives help from an accordion (from former East Germany), an old typewriter, an ancient babyphone and a glass of water. As a trio the audience is treated to Kettledrums, and mouth percussion, while the quintet formation gets
supported by the raw power of drums and bass.

'MyKungFu live to me is always some kind of magic hat - I love musical collaborations!' says Domi Schreiber.
Domi Schreiber was born 1973 in the city of Bern. He grew up in Basel, hit puberty in Solothurn, went to school in Biel and discovered his fascination for the guitar in Geneva. He eventually studied music in
Zurich, joined his first 'real' rock band 'HNO' in Aarau and finally lost his heart to the city of Winterthur. This is also where he met singer/songwriter William White.
While touring Europe with William White's Band 'The Emergency', Domi Schreiber had already worked on a few songs of his own - yet it was still not the right time for MyKungFu to come into its own. Since April 2009 it has grown to a full-fledged solo project with regular shows on stages all over Switzerland and neighboring europe.

'romantic archeology' was released March 12th 2010

Track Name: Everything is good
everything is good
as long as i can stay out in the woods
everything is good
as long as i can stay out in the woods

i’d be the happiest someone
if you could ever see me
i’d be the happiest someone
if you could ever love me
i’d be the happiest someone

everything is good
as long as i can stay out in the woods
everything is good
as long as i can stay out in the woods

i’d be the happiest someone
if you could ever see me
i’d be the happiest someone
if you could ever love me
i’d be the happiest someone
if you could ever see me
i’d be the happiest someone
if you could ever see me cry
if you could ever see me cry
oh...
i’d be the happiest someone
if you could ever see me
i’d be the happiest someone
if you could ever see me cry
oh...
Track Name: Substance
the thing that keeps us safe
is a little bit of substance
and substance is a fading thing
it appears in many shapes
in pills and love in jars or popsongs
substance is a fading thing

but it’s all so wrong
if we carry on
it’s not for very long
it doesn’t run that deep
if we carry on
it’s not for very long
it’s not the thing that comes for cheap
it’s the bitter stuff
that makes the body burn
the lack of substance’s pushing through
pushing through
pushing through

once i’m the the ride
there’s no blinking to my thinking
maybe i will learn someday
suddenly awake
everything seems oh so clear now
how could i assume that you would stay?

but it’s all so wrong....
Track Name: Panic
Well i tried and tried to pretend
that i was doing right
but i was going wrong
did i all that for nothing?
for nothing?

We are side by side still trying to talk
to each other but we don’t find words
did we all that for nothing?
for nothing?

NOW I’M SITTING INSIDE BUT
I DON’T WANNA HIDE
BUT YOU’RE GONE AND YOU’RE NOT COMING BACK
AND I FEEL LIKE I’M NOTHING
I SAID I’M NOTHING

ALREADY KNEW I’D MISS YOU
WHEN YOU WERE STILL AROUND
I COULDN’T SAY I LOVE YOU
WHEN YOU WERE STILL AROUND

ALREADY KNEW I’D MISS YOU
WHEN YOU WERE STILL AROUND
I COULDN’T SAY I LOVE YOU
WHEN YOU WERE STILL AROUND
Track Name: Do what you do
we seem so small and still and gone
so blue, so blue from far
something’s right when nothing’s wrong
so true so true
so far

i’ll let you go, let you do what you do
please let me know, that you do what you do

See your eyes so black and blue
so soft, so hard from far
something’s right when nothing’s wrong
so true, so true
so far

i’ll let you go, let you do what you do
please let me know, that you do what you do

i’ll let you go, let you do what you
please let me know, that you do what you do

do yeah what you do
do what you do
do what you do yeah
what you do, do what you do
