Got some stuff I've been thinking about ordering for a long time.

7" A Place To Bury Strangers - Keep Slipping Away
LP Crocodiles - Summer of Hate

From Germany...

I got a new 12" from FlexiWave today. I also realized I have missed out on a 7" from the same label. I will have to get it next time I order from KernKrach.

12" Die Fly Die ‎– Standing On Mermaids

Egoist...

Last night, Kent invited all their fans to Eskilstuna to listen to the new and final album by the band. It's being released tomorrow. My buddies F and F went there and they say it sounds a lot like the two latest releases. I haven't really listened to Tigerdrottningen. I guess I should do that. I got the red 7" today. Figured I might as well get it...

7" Kent - Egoist

Closing time...

No call for alcohol. Well, at least not for me. On March 17, 1986, Depeche Mode released Black Celebration. I still remember that day. We passed 30 years yesterday. Amazing. I also found out, Kollaps Records is closing down the store. It's a real shame, but I do understand the reasons why they decided the time had come. I've spent a lot of money in that store. I've met a bunch of great people in that store. I've spent so many hours in their store, it almost feels like a second home. Both stores that is. I'm sure gonna miss it. I know they will do a lot of stuff in the future. I wish them luck in their future endeavor. Those guys have introduced me to more than half the people I hang out with these days. I owe them a lot. Jonas and Mattias, you're fucking awesome. Both of you.Thank you for everything. I'm sure gonna miss the store. You can still buy records from them via their webshop. You should. Always support people who loves music.


Saturday...

Jonas and Mattias at Kollaps just put out some stuff from their own private collections. I got these today;

LP The Danse Society ‎– Demos Vol. 1
LP James Rays Gangwar ‎– Dios Está De Nuestro Lado
LP Modern Eon ‎– Fiction Tales

 
 

Without You I'm Nothing...

I was so close to pick this up just a few days ago, but for some strange reason, I decided not to. I corrected this today.

LP Placebo - Without You I'm Nothing (Yellow clear, 180 g)


Twice A Man

A long long time ago, I went to the theatre in my hometown to see Twice A Man. It was the Driftwood Tour around 1988. I loved it. It wasn't at all what I expected though. I recently got to see them at Södra Teatern here in Stockholm. Tonight, you can go see them at Klubb Nalen. Not doing that, but I am going to see New Order, tomorrow.

LP+CD Twice A Man - Presence


Beyond the Beyond

A long time ago, people started exchanging their vinyl albums for CD's. I am in the process of going the other way. Because I can.

I went by Jonas at Kollaps today. Brought home:

LP The Weathermen - Beyond the Beyond
7" Doric - Doric

 
 

Kernkrach and beyond.

For years, I've been keeping track of all my record purchases at Last FM. Last FM is being re-designed and I've lost all the info for 2015. They can stick it. I will stop using all their services and keep track of all my stuff here instead. 
 
So, here is the first post. 
 
Last weekend, I attended the fifth annual Kalabalik på Tyrolen. It was freakin awesome, and I even bought some nice records. I even got to buy some stuff from Mr Kernkrach himself, Jürg.LP
 
Kollaps Records in Stockholm is a great place where I've met some really awesome people these past few years. Come to think of it, most of the people I hang out with these days, are people I've met there. 
 
Ok, so this is what I bought today.
 
LP Mängelexemplar - Heim und Garten
LP Dada Pogrom - Kolophonium
 
And I might as well add the previous stuff from 2015.

What can I say... I love vinyl...

You can't always get what you want...

We all know that, right... I should try to be here more often. I do have things to say at times. Perhaps not right now. I'll just blame the pollen. I really hate the blooming of the birches.
 
I'll just skip that part and ask if you think you might be able to buy happines. I wasn't sure until I bought this:
 
It's a Fender Jaguar FSR. It's got blocks & bindings and a matching headstock. It's the most beautiful Jag I've ever seen. Surprisingly, my Telecaster FSR has been my number one the past two years. It's  my go to guitar, and I must say I'm surprised I used it more than my Gretsch. Now I need to switch out my Jazzmaster for a white one and I would love to find a white Jaguar Bass too. A white Jazz Bass would do the trick, but the Jag is the one I want. So, you CAN buy happiness. At least some kind of happiness. 

Losing the battle...

Today is the day when you should reach deep down in your pocket and donate just any amount to any charity.
 
Rest in peace Kristian.
 
 

May the 4th be with you...

It's been ages. Probably more than ages... I've been busy, and I think I actually forgot I used to write something here every now and then.
 
First things first. I want to show my respect for Sir Alex and Paul Scholes from Manchester United. Hats off to you guys. Even though I am a Gunner at heart, I will miss Sir Alex. Same goes for David Beckham who announced he is retiring from the game.
 
Sweden beat Canada in the quarter final last night. What an amazing victory!
 
I currently working on two projects. Dirty Grounds and NMA. The latter is coming here this weekend. I'm looking forward to play through the songs a few times! Dirty Grounds will be recording a few more songs before we will put them on Soundclound.
 
However, the greatest thing for me, is my upgrade to Reason 7. Reason finally supports MIDI. It's freakin' awesome!!!
 
Hm, this isn't very interesting. I hope you find something more interesting to read.

Silent night...

December 13, 2012. That calls for some kind of weird celebration in Sweden. I'm not gonna bother telling the story about my adventure as the gingerbread man. I will however share this for guide for my non Swedish friends.

Regarding my latest fascination, I might have bought two more guitars during the past 4 months. First of all, this beauty:
 
A very nice Fender Jazzmaster, Classic Player. I'm very happy with it. It was pretty cheap too..
 
Two days ago, I found myself a very nice Fender Jazz Bass. It's not stock. The previous owner slapped on a mirror pickguard. I'm not sure what I think of it yet. I'm gonna let it stay for now.
 
 
It does go rather well with my Jaguar, doesn't it?
 

Raw Power!

I don't know which is worse. The current situation in Belarus, or the fact that Pussy Power is on trial for their performance in a church. Freedom of speech is something we take for granted. For good and bad.

If you want to read more about Pussy Power, click
here.

There is an unpleasant wave of darkness moving through Europe at the moment.

So, I haven't really been in the mood to write anything here. To me, a blog should probably contain something interesting. This is obviously not the case here. This is just my personal space for ranting about stuff I like/dislike.

I guess it's a web based reminder of things for me. And I guess I'll keep it like that too. So if you're not interested in that, you should stop wasting your time here...

Last week, I just couldn't help myself. I had to get another guitar. I bought a Fender Telecaster 72 Deluxe FSR. It's got the smaller headstock and it's in arctic white. I wish I had the larger CBS headstock, but this particular guitar was really cheap, and it just looks stunning.



My friend Börje was asking if I left the dark side. Might be the case. The last two guitars I've bought, they are both white. I guess my black-guitar-buying-days are over...

There is a running joke among some of my friends. Question: How many guitars can you own? Answer: Just one more...

Which is rather true. I would like one or two more I guess, but now, I'm very specific. What I would love, is a white Fender Jazzmaster. It would be awesome.

Something like this:



I would change the pickguard though. I think it would look even better in black. And if there was a model avaible with a white headstock, I'd sell some of my old analogue synths.

Which I kind of did. I decided to sell my Roland SH-2. I don't really miss it. I still have the SH1 and the SH09. I might get rid of more of the old synth stuff in the fututre.

I went to see Social Distortion the other week. A great show at Cirkus. Which is an awesome venue to start with. And I got to see Alonso & Fas 3 which was even better. I never heard of Royal Republic before. Not a bad liveact. I was also attending Pearl Jam at Globen earlier this summer. Yeah, I know. Quite surprizing. Very good show. If the everyone would be as humble as Eddie Vedder, the world would be a better place. I'm sure.

Liberal animation or Animal Liberation...

It's been a long time. Been trying to clear up stuff that has ben lagging. Lesson number one. Never trust anyone. It doesn't really matter if someone is insuring you over and over again, they wouldn't rip you off. That's just words. Nothing else. I should have know better. Today, they are all so clear. Everything is very clear. If you actually do believe some people are liars and thieves, they probably are.

I can't say I'm surprised either. I was just hoping to be wrong. I wasn't. Not at all. it was worse than I imagined though. That was a surprise!

So, in short, never trust anyone! If you choose not to, you will be fine. It's not the way I would like to live my life, but it's the only way to be sure it won't happen again.

However, life is much better now. In every aspect. I decided to award myself by buying a new guitar. (Well, for the second time.)

So, here it is. I would like to say, it looks amazing!


This is the fab Gretsch G5120 lim ed in white. It is awesome. I'm getting to the point where even I am starting to think, I might have too many guitars. I bought myself a new Fender Jaguar HH earlier this year. It looks just like this:



That was my christmas gift to myself. I guess it doesn't count. But I will seriously try not to buy any more guitars now. Even though I must admit, I am planning on building my own Fender Telecaster here:
Warmoth Guitars.

I have also decided to let some of my old analogue gear go. I don't use them anymore. I will probably save some of them, but the Roland brothers, they will have to go.

Think different...

It's impossible to pass this by. A great mind just left us. Rest in peace Steve...


The Times are-a-changing...

They are. I can feel it. Just you wait and see. I can feel the storm coming. I can see it rising. It's worrying. I don't like it. Not at all.

After the storm... After the tearing... The aftermath. I'm curious and scared. At the same time.

Mad world...

What a strange world we live in. Some great things may happen, at the same time as something completely insane takes place...

The tragedy in Norway is one thing. It's all so sad, and my thoughts and regards goes out to all the people who might have lost someone in the tragedy.

Amy Winehouse is another tragedy. I think the whole world knew she would never make it to 30. It's very sad. It really is. I'm not a big fan of her, but I do recognize talent. And her unique way. With out the drugs. She was cool. Except for the drugs of course. She will be missed. I'm sure.


At the same time, two of my friends became parents. Big congrats to both of you! It's a nice thing to see that at least that very same week wasn't all bad. Something great came out of it too.

I think that is a great way of ending this right here, right now...
