Giving my latest song to Krakel…
Maybe I’ll release it but if not, you can hear it here.
It’s called Crazy.
Krakel just released an Ep.
You can hear it on Spotify…
The band, Krakel, found a new bass player! Mr. Johnny Mild is perfect! Now we’re speeding up. Preparing for the release of an Ep and later a single. We’re working hard arranging the music and we’re very proud. The release is very close… More info https://krakel.co
Asatron’s collecting ideas for the next recording, but some of the ideas nowdays go to Krakel. I love playing with Krakel! I long for the release gig…
The 7:th of April Stockholm was attacked.
A man drove a truck. killed and injured innocent people and crashed into one of Stockholms most visited stores.
It was a terror attack. Stockholmers were shocked.
My daughter works in that store and I’m so happy she called me to tell she was all right before I was reached by the news on media.
The days after the attack people came to the Place with flowers and candles to show respect to the victims but also to share love and show that we’ll never let things like this change us. A big love manifestation took place and policemen, firefighters, doctors and nurses were hailed as heroes. The leaders of Sweden spoke of love and freedom and the people of Stockholm were praised for their actions in Connection with the attack.
I was a bit shocked by the incident and cried for the victims but I also felt something else. So many people showed love and consideration and stood united in love, not hate. We opened our hearts that day…
My way of dealing with this awful attack is creating music.
The lyrics includes fragments of things I heard people say and I’m so thankful that i have regained faith in humanity.
This song is called Together and it’s dedicated to all of you who choose love.
Vacation = studio
Created this one in my head and recorded it in two days.
Hope you like it too.
Did you know I was once a professional choir singer?
I worked in church choir and for one year I worked with the famous Swedish radio choir . I was one of the singers when we performed a requiem by Sven David Sandström för the first time in Berwaldhallen in Stockholm. Tonight I listen to the recordings from the Concert found on spotify. Memories are coming back to me… There was protests outside the concert hall… the lyrics by Tobias Berggren was inappropriate they said and definitely not for young girls to sing… there was high security and rumors said that the event were under bomb threat. The music is both very beautiful and sometimes awful, just like the lyrics. “The memories of the fallen” was inspired by documentation of German and French Nazi persecution of the Jews marketers, the paper Svenska dagbladet wrote. The concert was broadcasted live in Swedish radio and recorded and released as an album, now available on spotify. Sven David Sandström was rewarded with the Nordic Council Music Prize for this requiem. Want to know more? read here. Want ti listen? Listen here.
To me this is much more provocative than punk or death metal… Both the music and lyrics describe the horror when families were put on trains for the last journey towards execution… No toys were allowed on the long journey…
A different kind of gig…
Yesterday I played at a party. Just an acoustic guitar and my voice. To celebrate my 80 years old mother I sang and played a song instead of a speech.
After nine days he suddenly came back!
The hope has left me and I just begun to accept that he probably was dead…
When I got out of the car I heard a tiny little “meow” and there he was. Wet, dirty and thin….
I dropped my bags on the ground and hugged him, crying of happiness.
I’ll never know what happened to him but I know I love this little animal.
