Almost over…

2015 is almost over.

I remember some moments. In the beginning of the year we decided to bury the band No Jive. To find a new drummer and start all over again was to much for us. It was a hard 45584_142896819080035_100000791522440_186622_5297987_n[1]decision but we had a hell of a funeral celebrating with food, wine and belly dancers.

I went to London for an exhibition and an event for expert educators.

I bought a new acoustic guitar.

I celebrated my birthday with a 70-ties inspired party in my garden with 50 guests. There was an open unplugged stage.IMG_0581

The band Krakel Zpektakel decided to celebrate the reunion with a big party and played live at PSB in the beginning of September.

I started to study technique and astronomy and in October I went to nothern Norway to meet astroscientists. In november I went back to Norway for a conference and to visit two awesome schools.

The band Lokalbefolkningen had a couple of gigs and welcomed Lina as a singer but 39503_478255433134_648963134_6661916_5479529_n[1]decided to slow down and take a break at the end of the year.

Some people make promises for the new year. I don’t but I know what to focus on.

I will spend more time in the studio when my studies are over.

The band Krakel Zpektakel will be number one.

I hope Lokalbefolkningen will wake up, if not I’ll search for a new coverband.

Music for the ladies

Spent the weekend rearranging an old hit by Krakel Zpektakel.

This one is totally different from the original and so much better I think. Still in progress though…

Yesterday I listened to Pär Enqvist band.

Swedish rock with interesting lyrics.

Listen to their new album at Spotify.

In “I dina ögon” you can hear my voice in the choirs.

Krakel Zpektakel live again

After almost 30 years we met again.

Not girls anymore but grown up women with different experiences of life…

We played a lot at clubs in the eighties, only our own material.

Then kids, love and families suddenly were more  important and we went different ways.

2014 we met again and recorded two songs from the past. without rehearsal and in December we played live at a party…

The video is from that party. We’d only played together three times before this evening and the ladies haven’t got instruments at home for practicing…  I think they did great!

Nowadays we meet regularly playing, having dinner or just have a couple of drinks, I’m very happy about this, these ladies are really good friends and I enjoy hanging out with them. So much laughter…

We’re planning to have a reunion party at the end of the summer, and will invite all the friends from the past…

I look forward to that.

After all these years…

The ladies go live

Yesterday I and the band Krakel Zpektakel were invited to a party with musicians to play and jam. After three rehearsals we were ready to play two of our old hits. We were a bit nervous and we had to explain to the audience that three of us haven’t even got instruments for practicing. After the circumstances I think we did a great job! The ladies can deliver.

Two other bands also played a couple of songs and then we started to play in mixed constellations. I joined the jam in Highway to hell, comfortably numb, Du hast, Wish you were here, Baby love, Still got the blues, Sweet home Alabama and The wall…

It was great fun and I’m so impressed by the awesome musicians.

The band who hosted this event is Rockrus. Check them out here http://rockrus.se/

KrakelZpektakel / Asatron

Spent a lot of time in the studio recording an old song from the female band Krakel Zpektakel.

I played in that band back in the eighties. I recorded it from the memory, it’s only available on cassette tapes and I haven’t got a player for that… When I started I thought it should be a piece  of cake but hell no… To create the sound I had in my head I spent many hours testing and mixing… Tonight I sent mp3’s to the girls for feedback. If they like it I’ll publish it but I’m not sure it’ll be an ASATRON track… It’s in swedish and Asatron never released something in swedish before… I think I’ll publish it as a Krakel Zpektakel / Asatron song… But first I need permission from the band…

By the way… Krakel Zpektakel is planning to start rehearsal again, after all these years… That’s awesome !

I’m slowly recovering from the backache. I’ve been treated with dry needling and pills. Feel much better !
This weekend I met the girls from the ancient band Krakel Zpektakel. We had a crayfish party and after a couple of drinks we decided to try to play together again. We have a lot of awsome songs from the past and it’s a pity to let them sink into oblivion.
Today was rehearsal day with Lokalbefolkningen. Two gigs booked, the 5th and 6th of September. The first one is a private party and the second a local festival, Myrsjöfestivalen.
Next week I’ll play with No Jive again after summer vacation.
In the studio I have a heavy project going on but I need some more inspiration….

This picture is taken by the photografer Roland Aalto. Krakel Zpektakel visited the vernissage and enjoyed his photos yesterday. Awesome!

I love these early mornings…

That’s what I call rock! The music compound “Ormen” celebrated 35 years yesterday. Five bands on stage. Edgar Quartet, Swordflames, PMP, Bodies and last Lokalbefolkningen. I’m impressed about the quality and  how the musicians delivered energy. Among these musicians I was the only woman. I wonder why. When I passed the bar I got a big surprise. The drummer and bass player from my old female band Krakel Zpektakel showed up to listen to us. That made me really happy and at the after party we had serious discussions about putting the band together again.  Maybe next year there will be more women on that stage… Lokalbefolkningen did a great gig again and I’m proud of being a member in this band. We started with Bimbo witch is very rough in our version. We only played uptempo songs this time and it was very hot on stage. I had a great time and the audience called for two extra songs. When I came home at four o’clock it was daylight and the birds had their own rockparty among the trees. I love these early mornings…IMGP4855IMGP4864bIMGP4863

World Premiere

Krakel medel a

The first song from the female group from the eighties is released.

We were four young girls with dreams. We played together in the eighties.

We made our own music and rehearsed in a little summer house.

Sometimes we had a brass section consisting three young men.

We played live at clubs in Stockholm. We were proud, we were strong…

But the we woke up from the dream and the band split in the late eighties.

We got kids and families and new dreams.

This summer we met again for the first time since we split.

We decided to record two of our old hits.

We went into the studio without rehearsals. We hadn’t even listened

to the songs. They’re all on old tapes and we hadn’t recorders…

We tried to remember the chords and surprisingly quick we nailed the first song.

The other one was a bit harder but after lunch we recorded that one too.

I brought the project home to my studio to finish the vocals and mixing.

And yesterday we decided to release “Antingen Eller”

One of the first songs we ever made.

The bands name is

Krakel Zpektakel

and the members are:

Drums Kattis Söderström

Bass An Britt Falkbäck

Keyboars  Tora Lane

Guitar and lead vocals  Åsa Girgensohn

All the music was made by me. All the members wrote the lyrics.

Antingen Eller Lyrics Kattis Söderström, music Åsa Girgensohn

The other song we recorded is not finished yet, but will be soon…

Listen and download Antingen Eller for free.

Help us to share if you like.

So many people talk about reunions… – We should meet and bla bla bla…

And everyone know it’s just words…

We didn’t just talk…We really did it! And that’s what we’re most proud of!

The reunion of Krakel Zpektakel was a big moment for me.


Thanks to Johan Hackman and Rickard Ahl for support in the studio.

Thanks to all good old friends who encouraged us!
