In February and March I will be touring with Marianne of Katzenjammer’s solo project Dandylion in Europe, both opening for her and playing guitar in her band. It’s gonna be a blast!

NEW SHOWS THE SUPER EGO

In between recording two new albums I am doing a few shows here and there. Since I never was any good at keeping up the momentum of past successes I’ve hardly done anything to make sure people remember me from time to time. Now I woke up the other day thinking; I haven’t really playedContinue reading “NEW SHOWS THE SUPER EGO”

UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A COLORLESS VOLATILE FLAMMABLE LIQUID

Well, the remainder of our journey was a train ride back to London and then see what would be coming our way. Dead tired of moving along by putting one foot in front of the other we went for the solution of staying in. Staying in discussing philosophically interesting ways of recording musical albums. OneContinue reading “UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A COLORLESS VOLATILE FLAMMABLE LIQUID”

FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE

Ciao boys and girls, Oh how drunken man can get… It’s Sunday morning after too many days of drinking, dancing and playing. The only right thing to do is to walk the mountain and let out the demons. And eat junk food… FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE! Friday in Trondheim was fun. A lot of people, nice feedbackContinue reading “FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE”

BULLSHIT BULLSHIT BULLSHIT

“All you need is love”. A wise person once wrote this line. My opinion is that that’s Utopian. Still, I’m really working on believing in it. It’s not the worst thing that can happen. I mean, if we really believed in it I guess we’d get one step closer. “All I need is love” At this point I’m very openContinue reading “BULLSHIT BULLSHIT BULLSHIT”

DRY AIR

Hi, I’m back in Bergen after spending days in a car touring the Eastern part of Norway with Karin Park. It’s nice to be finally breathing the air of the West coast again. The problem with the weather on the other side of the mountain is that it is so dry that I have to borrow Karin’s moisture cream every day. Not thatContinue reading “DRY AIR”
