Saturday nights show turned out good. Even thou the PA firm forgot mikes and cables - we used every tric in the book to get decent sound. Fireball Steven did a great show (congrats on your birthday NIC!), so did we. Especially thanks to Thommy Borssén and his great piano skills. Video will be out later this week on YouTube.

WHAT A WEEK!

Had our first show Friday with our new bass player Henrik and he came out with wings! Not much time left over to record our upcoming album at the moment, but it will be done when it's done. 24 tracks are recorded thou. The Redneck Festival was cancelled due to some trouble between the staff and the local police and our Swedish audience will soon know through TV and papers. We have a couple of new videos out on YouTube from Fridays show at Tollered. Our concert schedule grows as we speak. I'm doing my 40th radio show this week and after that I will have a break running reruns instead. Don't miss me at Nostalgifestivalen at Vårgårda on June 8 where I will be selling vintage microphones and other 50's stuff!



Vintage microphones

28/4/2013

PROGRESS

Couldn't keep myself from the stage last night so I crashed 3 Sparks show and sang with Hot Rhythm's Tommy and prev. bass player Roine along with Tommys son Anton on drums. Anyway - progress on the new album is this: we recorded 24 tracks which I'm now are adding vocals and guitars to. Then piano and saxophones are up, but it all takes a lot of time alongside my regular job so my guess is that the album wil be out until September 2013.



Vintage microphones

5/4/2013

VINTAGE MIC'S!

I have updated the site where I sell vintage microphones (both with original and modern insides). So take a peek. If not for all the awsome designed microphones!

He will be in the band until a new bass player is introduced. We shared stage with the great Red Barn Rumblers & Maggie Mae. Great snowy night (we played for 4,5 hours) and a great snowed in audience!

23/12/2012

NEW BASS PLAYER NEEDED!

We've been on a stand off for some weeks due to lack of a stand up bass player - although our former member Roine is still with the band until a replacement is found. I've taken some time off in January to write new songs and we'll be on the road shortly with a new album.

MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

ROCKING A 10th CENTURY CASTLE

Wednesday our beloved bass player Roine suffered a medical condition that forces him to leave us. He's gonna be fine but needs to take it easy from now on. So now we're looking for a new stand up bass player. Meanwhile me and the Mrs went to Öland and did a singback show at Slottruinen outside Borgholm. Awsome castle from the 10th century and we used the same dressingroom as (previously) Johnny cash, Bob Dylan, Abba, Count Basie a.s.o.

Talking to me?!

I had loads of fun yesterday at the Bebop-a-lula Festival. Great show, good management and nice company by Gugges Enmanna (amazing show in our hotel room!). First class show by Fireball Steven and his band too. The show was recorded and there will be a video clip here as soon as I receive the audio from the festival management.

Next up is our 25 year anniversary show with my old 60's punk band PSYCHOTIC YOUTH in Gothenburg! More info at www.psychoticyouth.com.

08/29/2010

Yesterdays show at the annual Gothenburg Cruising went well. I started out with a sour throat due to the cold and moisty weather, but after 1 liter of coffe and a couple of shots of whiskey I was back on track. You can watch a video of the song "Higher" on this sites video section filmed by Mary West. Thanks to Tony for taking great photos.

Looking forward to next weekend and the BE-BOP-A-LULA festival. Not to often I can pick the very best of my live tracks (as we mostly play 2-3 hours a night). It will be a great show! Stay tuned.

08/19/2010

An article about Fridays show at Tollered can be read at Lerums Tidning.

08/14/2010

The evening at Tollered went great. Around people 300 showed up. Considering the village is about twice the size it was a hit. I will make a new effort next summer to extend. The same goes for the debute "backing track" show in Uddevalla on Saturday at a private engagement 60th birthday party (happy birthday Katarina!). First time out without the band backing me up. Missed the guys - loved the response.

08/13/2010

08/12/2010

There was a half page story about tomorrows show in our local paper Lerums tidning. Got a gig on Saturday where me and my wife are going to sing and play guitar to backing tracks for the first time ever! It'll be interesting. And tomorrow morning between 10:00 and 10:30 I will be talking on radio station P4 Gothenburg about the new album and upcoming shows.

On this Friday August the 13th I have rented the old dancehall at Tollered (at the far right end of the school and soccer field), 28 kilometers outside Gothenburg towards Stockholm. On stage you will find RED WEST & HOT RHYTHM, MARY WEST and THOMMY BORSSÉN. On stage at 21:00 and show ends 23:30. No entrance fee. Big parking space. Bring your dance shoes!

08/09/2010

08/03/2010

We didn't make it further in the contest of Svenstoppen Nästa. Maybe it was due to my BIB's (heh heh)

But you can watch a nice video of our performance at my video section.


07/14/2010

Holy smoke! We won the partly competition of Svenstoppen Nästa. Here's a link to the radio show. The time is between 10:00-11:00 Wednesday July 14th and in two parts. The semi competition will be held on July 27th.

07/12/2010

Tomorrow I will participate in a music contest which I never belived I would enter. But much has happened since The Playtones won a TV broadcasted dance-band contest, and I see my participation as a chance to meet new listeners and have a few beers with my friends which will come to the amusement park where the contest called Svenstoppen Nästa is held.

07/10/2010

The new album is now available at your local record store. Or you can find it at any online store.
