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”

THE TROUBLES OF TOURING

We were supposed to pick up a rental car, that was what I’d planned and then out of a sudden there was no car to pick up. Who screwed up? Well, I am not meaning to say that I am among the greatest of tour managers so I guess I would have to take someContinue reading “THE TROUBLES OF TOURING”

THE WILMINGTON ARMS

I had a meeting with a music lawyer. Discussing future plans… and me moving back to the UK at some point. The meeting was basically about having to build a new team around me that’ll help move things forward… (upwards and onwards) I popped by Fopp in Covent Garden to buy some CDs and cameContinue reading “THE WILMINGTON ARMS”

MONDAY A BLANK PAGE

We had those few beers. We went to Waganama in Camden. It’s one of my favorite restaurants, ’cause even though it’s a chain of restaurants they make good food and good food is what we like. I had my regular course of chili chicken and nudles and a Asahi beer. Harald ordered some duck dumplingsContinue reading “MONDAY A BLANK PAGE”

PASSING TIME IN THE LOO

I was hoping to have my regular coffee and bread this morning. Bread with chocolate toppings or whatever you Englishmen call it. I prefer the Norwegian made Nugatti, whilst a Danish friend of mine say Nutella is the thing, I couldn’t disagree more. But most importantly when it comes to my breakfast and the wayContinue reading “PASSING TIME IN THE LOO”

BUILD A WELL

Before leaving my home in Aalesund I wrote down lyrics for three new songs on my typewriter. I can’t remember the last time I sat down to see ink in real life take form of meaningfulness on paper like it used to do back in the old days when I was a teenager and lovedContinue reading “BUILD A WELL”

AVRIL LAVIGNE

Hello, Just got home from London. Wembley Arena. Avril Lavigne. Great show. Nice girl. Met her backstage. Beer. Baileys & Coffee. Guitar. Drunken harmonies. Empty corridors. Cold shower. No flush. New clothes. Brush. Out. Bar. No girls. Taxi. Bar. No girls. Taxi. Long conversation about football. Food. Bed. Thirst. Thirst. Thirst. -robert

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”

FAKE KURT NILSEN SIGNATURE

Ugg ugg, Is it so that every little lie can make huge differences with time? I just got home from, guess what, another three days in a car and a lot of ferries. It’s been a lot of fruit and booze, which causes earthquakes in my belly. And I met Kurt Nilsen look-alike “X” (I don’tContinue reading “FAKE KURT NILSEN SIGNATURE”

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”
