Latest Album or Single release:
- What’s the story behind the new song?
Björn is always trying new things this time he had the idea of making a quite straight forward rocksong. Most of the time we mess around with a new song in rehearsal and sort of form it together, but this time björn had a totally finished song in his head and knew exactly how it should sound.
- What inspired you to put together a new [album or single] & what it is all about?
I can’t really speak for björn but I think we just want to evolve, try new things and see where we will end up! We do not have a plan what the next album should sound like. But it must be better than the last!
- Will you be touring to support the new album? If so, when?
As soon as this pandemic crap is over we are ready to tour! We want to play al over The world and as soon as we get The chance we Will! Playing in front of People is what it is al about!
- What is your song writing process?
Usually björn has a idea that we tweek or mess around with a bit. But hopefully we will contribute al three more and more when it comes to writing in the future
- What’s your first thoughts when you get up on stage?
Maybe a bit boring but am I tune and is everything setup so people can here us (don’t forget the cable or have the tuner on mute! Doh !)
We are always well rehearsed so the performance part is just fun!
- Where was the first venue you played?
Personally? Some kind of school lgathering in the middle of the eighties on recorder (metal!) on bass? A rock concert in a church (!?) around 93. With björn? Uhm in a park in our hometown in the early two thousands?
- What is your most memorable moment from any live performances?
Aah yeah fun stuff do happen! Drunk ladies that try to dance to our not that dance able music and falling down in a heap! The classic ”play skynard /creedence/whatever when we really just want to play our own stuff.
- Describe the atmosphere when you’re performing
Since we rehearse a lot nerves is usually not a problem. We are exited of course and work hard to deliver a really good show! But the atmosphere is really relaxed, we add jam parts to songs and make changes her and there if we fell like it or we think the audience is up for it
- What band would you like to perform with the most?
Good question! Of course zeppelin or Metallica or ac/DC would be cool but we would settle for any band we can hangout with and where we just can have fun. The performance part is just a small part of touring.
- Will you be touring in the United Kingdom any time soon?
We want to play everywhere! United Kingdom is definitely up there a great excuse to try UT British pubs at the same time! As soon as the pandemic is over we are setting up a tour and the UK would be awesome!
