I bought this 7” a couple of days ago. The emotional content of these songs is so high and strong I feel this is a contender for record of the year. Spin it, buy it, playlist it! Gävle i mitt hjärta. #CrookedLetter026 #CrookedLetter

SHIIIIIIIIEEET! Somebody’s runnin’ around the internet teasin’ people in the middle of the night.

Last weeks I’ve been workin’ on an animated music video for Sugar Clouds. It’s done. I recently premiered it at a local art exhibition. All of y’all photophobics who don’t go out much. Rest assured, it will be on Youtube too.

You’ve been teased!

#FlagsOfNationsYetToBe

Thu, 04 Jul 2013 11:49:00

Some years ago, each time watching a film was brought up on the agenda a dear friend of mine suggested one particular film every single time. I ducked it cause I understood it was about some ol’ singer/songwriter from Texas.

"Yawn!" I thought.

Of course I had not yet heard this brilliant artist’s music. Once I did, of course the film came on and I was blown away.

The film was “The Devil And Daniel Johnston” and from that day on I take it as my mission to show it to everyone I can. Last night I preached the gospel to a dear friend. I think she’s born again and I celebrated this morning sitting down at the piano just after morning coffee.

Whilst waiting for my new music to be released this summer I’ll let you in on some of my favourite records and my personal stories connected to that music…

Part 2:

Green Day - Dookie (CD)

For years I had been running from door to door in the neighbourhood on freezing and dark winter evenings selling lottery tickets. I had been spending hot summer days breaking world sweat records in stuffed animal costumes whilst filling helium balloons and cleaning windshields at the drive-ins of hamburger joints. All this trying to finance the coming trip to Canada with my ice hockey-team. We were gonna play tough, big Canadians in a tournament in Toronto and also get to go see  The Maple Leafs play an NHL-game. A big thing for a little dreamer on ice.

The time came, the money was enough, we made it there. We kept our game up surprisingly well against the Canadians, however, inconveniently the NHL was on strike so we missed out on that treat.

Instead we got time to go shopping. In a Toronto shopping mall Green Day’s “Dookie" ended up in my possession. Our team brought home inspiration to totally unexpectedly go on and win the league later that year and I brought home a long lasting little plastic treat to help me with inspiration and direction after realizing I was not meant for greater things on ice after all. Mats Sundin and Billie Joe Armstrong nodded at each other in silent and mutual understanding as the door swung.

Whilst waiting for my new music to be released this summer I’ll let you in on some of my favourite records and my personal stories connected to that music…

Part 1:

Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit (7” vinyl single)

It’s my birthday, I put the record I just got from my best childhood friend on the record-player. Some dark, sludgy, drunken, sinister sounding music comes out of the speakers. How my friend heard about this new band I have no idea. Maybe the staff down at the local record store Skivbutiken gave him a tip. Never heard of this Nirvana band. 3 blurry faces on the cover. I was still an ignorant kid and the music spinning was fundamentally different to anything I ever heard.

The song playing was the B-side of the Smell Like Teen Spirit 7” single called Even In His Youth. And it was love at first listen that quickly grew to potentially everlasting as I realized I had been playing it at 33 rpm instead of the supposed 45 rpm. I went from feeling severly and pleasantly dark and sludgy to being distinctly and pleasantly punched in the stomach at the tilt of an rpm-knob.

So there you go, not paying attention to side A vs. side B and correct speed of vinyl singles can lead to surprising discoveries. And after that, of course, I turned the record. On comes the opening riff of Smells Like Teen Spirit and BAM! My teenage years and post-teen years to come had a soundtrack that would stick with me. And Even In His Youth remains one of my favourite Nirvana songs.

Tiger - Chikan Remix (The Deer Tracks)

As some of you may know I’ve sometimes made an appearance in the live get-up of The Deer Tracks. Time came to make a remix of their incredible song Tiger. Hearing the result David of the Deer Tracks commented: “It’s the sickest thing I’ve ever heard” and dubbed it “The Psychosis Remix”. So enjoy!

The Chimneys Have Been Sealed

You’re still a little soft around the edges

Your weary head on your old old bed all day long

Whitebearded, kind on noone’s mind in crispy winter air

You lost your cool you’re such a fool and so last year

They loved me, I loved them, how could they? I tried hard

They must see I cannot go on without them

You had it coming quite some time, what’s old will be replaced

They let you keep that long red gown and it somehow saves your grace

As you hop up on your favorite deer to make one final round

Thinking they should still honor you and treasure what you’ve done

They loved me, I loved them, how could they? I tried hard

They must see I cannot go on

But this time you’re not bringing presents

This time around their wish is not your deed

Guess this comes around when kindness counts for nothing

So this time around no rhymes, clues or leads

The chimneys have been sealed

Streckad hand över oss

Streckad hand över oss

Lägger band och drar streck

I sand som ingen silat

I jord som inget ger

Det finns en stig som vissa ser

Ett slags förbund

Den som går där ska inget säga

Om hur lite han vet

Aldrig darra på handen

Streckad hand över oss

2 dikter

Min hyresvärd har satt för fönstren här med plast
Fast morgonkaffet värmer inifrån
Och morgonduschen värmer utifrån så fryser jag
När jag tänker på alla kalla vindar som fått fatt i mig
Emballage mot fria tankar
Mitt bagage bönar och svankar
Kom in i mig!
Vi blir ett ikväll
Du och jag mot framtiden
Gå direkt dit utan att passera nu

—-

Jag kan vara poet utan förlag
Jag kan vara entreprenör utan företag
Jag kan vara konstnär utan duk
Jag kan vara känslostyrd med kuk
Jag kan vara speciell i en likriktad ström
Konceptuell i en kaosartad dröm

Fan of the week must be @Alexander Ceci Forsberg. I can’t help but liking his recent plays. And my positioning right before Oasis and hot on Bach’s heels. Thanks for listening Alexander! The grand price is a big warm hug.
