   Looks like I've started a tradition!

  • March 2018

For the second time (or year) I've been given the opportunity to do the POWER POP EXTRAVAGANZA at Swedens biggest amusement park Liseberg. Last year I invited my idol Paul Collins and the awsome american/spanish band Kurt baker Combo. This year I will do another sweep of the best bands around with Norways THE YUM YUMS and the Swedish legends SONIC SURF CITY! And my own band PSYCHOTIC YOUTH as usual :) The date is May 26th!

   10th Anniversary for Buckshots demise

  • February 2018

Today is my 52nd birthday and I'm stuck with a cold that won't go away. But I've started to write new songs for the next Psychotic Youth album so all is not bad. Also - we (The Buckshots) will do a couple of shows celebrating our demise 10 years ago! These things always ends up badly and I guess this will too :) Stay tuned.

   Happy Holidays!

  • December 2017

2017 has been a great year for myself and Psychotic Youth, with festivals in Spain, Germany and Sweden. Now we're getting ready for 2018 and start off in Norway with a gig along our old pals The Yum Yums. We have a new line-up, or "new" is the wrong word - Kent and Anders is back from the very original line-up (1985) on drums and bass! Then we have another Spain trip along with a short tour of Sweden with Duncan Reid and the Big Heads a.m.o. My 50's band Red West & Hot Rhythm will also re-activate itself this spring. So HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE and let's hope to meet in 2018!

   Heroes!

  • October 2017

When you get to share a bill with our bands personal heroes and the main reason why you do this sordeed deed - to me it's a milestone. Next gig we share the bill with Redd Kross and Lime Spiders. Can't express enough how much they've ment to me and the guys in the band.

   Winter's coming...

  • October 2017

Felt extremely nice to play at the TSOMD Pop Up Festival in Hultsfred/Sweden after our summerleave. Now we look forward to the Purple Weekend Festival in Léon/Spain in December, followed by a trip to Norway and then back to Spain after New Years. In Norway we will re-unite with our original drummer Kent who will join the band once more (left us in 1995) as our present drummer Tommy is moving away from town, but will be stand by if needed. So that makes 2 bass players, 2 drummers, 2 guitarist and 1 organ player alternating the band line up. It's like a big collective of people! In December I'm planning to start composing new songs that hopefully will be good enough for a new album in 2018. Cheers!

Helgoland is like nothing else... maybe Iceland in the summer. But that means unique and the Butterfahrt Festival is also unique as more than 500 people contributes a shit load of cash as supoorters to keep this festival going. More than 1000 poeple in the audience gave us a memory of a lifetime this weekend. Thank you!

  • June 2016

Expectations was high on Psychotic Youth as they entered the stage at Pustervik in their hometown of Gothenburg on May 19th. Old fans, new fans and old members lined up to perform songs from the 30 year old vault, including Kent Norberg from Sator doing lead vocals on his own song Good Times Are Gone which Psychotic recorde back in 1989. The show went great and the bar was raised.
