>Supporting the scene

Advance Patrol is yet another band who has decided to release its new album El Futuro via The Pirate Bay – for free, fully legal. Click here to download.
Also visit their web where you can listen before download and if you like it, give these guys a few dollars at their paypal adress. I haven’t even heard the album yet, but I still contribute with 100 SEK to support their cause. This way the money ends up where they belong – with the artists!

Cool thing is that Advance Patrol, who was unknowingly being used against The Pirate Bay in the trial, this time own the music themselves, meaning they can do whatever they want with it.

The hiphop group known as Advance Patrol will release its new album on The Pirate Bay today. They will do so to spread their music to as many as possible, and at the same time discredit the prosecution against The Pirate Bay, a prosecution where Advanced Patrol has been used as a scapegoat in the circus around the court proceedings.
– We never asked to be plaintiffs in this case, Gonza from Advance Patrol explains, they used us as scapegoats in a fight in which we don’t wish to participate. We refuse to be used in a war against our fans.
– You cannot legislate away file sharing, Gonza says. Those who fileshares our music are also those who appreciate it the most. They are my friends, and friendship is something to be valued highly. That’s why we’re giving away El Futuro to the internet, to our friends.

>Roadburn 2009 – The videos

The Roadburn Festival 2009 in Tilburg, Holland, was amazing. “Four days of food, smoke and fun”, as The Grass Company puts it. And a little bit of music as well…
I will write a report for Sweden Rock Magazine later on, but for now enjoy the videos I shot with my tiny Canon Ixus 75 camera.

>Promoe – Svennebanan lyrics + mp3 + video

>Personally I think Promoe lost his vibe back on the White Man’s Burden album (2006), but he’s always on point anyway. Read the lyrics (in Swedish…) and enjoy the genius video. It says pretty much everything about Sweden’s disgusting average Joes… Hate them!

>Right now: Listening! (Roadburn Pt.1)

I’m leaving for Tilburg, Holland, and the mighty Roadburn Festival on Wednesday. Here are some of the bands I’ll be worshipping a couple of days from now.


Ufomammut opens up the festival at 4 PM. This is Stigma, opening track on the extremely fat Idolum album.
Listen to the doom apocalyse beginning at 03:35.
Thee mighty riff!

Endless Drifting Wreck.
Like Joy Division in space…

Rose Kemp!
Beautiful. Cool video as well.

Black Sun!
Disintegrate To Khrist.

No Evil.

>The Wire Magazine – One of the best yet


A couple of years ago I was a fanatic fan of The Wire Magazine, easily one of the best music magazines ever. I remember being so bummed about not ever being able to find all the cool records and artists they wrote about (this was before the internet boom and I lived in a shed in a forest of darkness without money, food, water, air, earth, fire… kind of). All I could do was sit at home dreaming about that stuff, in the end making music by myself and in a way trying to simulate what I imagined some of those records would sound like.
Looking back it’s obvious that The Wire made a huge impact on me and the way I listen to music. I discovered so many great artists – artists that I still rank super high today. It’s the kind of stuff I always return to. Check the covers below and you’ll see what I mean… I worship most of those bands and their creative efforts.

Somehow, when record labels started making use of the internet for real, I kind of lost interest in that particular kind of obscure music. Damn stupid move. Nowadays it’s easy as fuck getting hold of the stuff they’re writing about, but back then it was kind of a drag.
Every now and then I return to my collection of magazines, or I simply buy a new copy and just get going with listening to and ordering some really cool albums from artists I’ve never heard of. The Wire has that effect on me – it inspires and makes me want to listen to music. It doesn’t speculate about uninteresting shit like family tragedies, abortions and mindless crap like that that has got so little to do with music and so much to do with profit, wanting to sell loads of magazines to loads of idiots. No, The Wire deals with quality and reality, pretty much like the amazing TV series
Way before music like Sunn 0))) became the latest hype among sheep, The Wire was writing about the most extreme sounds of the underground. The first issue was unleashed in May 1982 (!) and started out as a jazz magazine (“jazz, improvised music and…”), and then gradually expanded its content to “modern jazz” like noise, avant garde, techno, dub, drum’n’bass, rap and experimentalism. The tagline says it all: Adventures in modern music.

Now pay tribute to the kings of experimental coverage by visiting the Wire site, read the fresh Sunn 0))) interview and perhaps consider buying an issue or two. It’s well worth it.
Come to think of it, the modern online record store equivalent of the magazine could very well be Dotshop… Check it out as well. Then go b.a.n.a.n.a.s. with your VISA card.
