Lars WallinEver since I heard “Didjerama” with Jamiroquai the first time, I’ve been a fan to didgeridoo playing. I made som brave attempts to play myself, but I never really managed the circular breathing…

Lars Wallin and his tribe invites you to great didgeridoo based music. With this chewed out eucalyptus tube, you can produce incredibly cool sounds by blowing, talking, shouting and whatever you like to create music. The songs below shows a lot of different techniques.

It’s a wonderful mix of music that you can listen to here; everything from three chord punk rock to back beat reggae.

Lars Wallin also has a very characteristic voice, that sometimes sounds like a mixture of Dylan and Manu Chao (it’s bound to be unique then;-))

Lars has been on tour frequently and visited most parts of the world. He has also played with Chris Bailey.

Planet Trash

Planet Trash
Planet Trash is from the left: Wille, Kåre, Myran and Parne.

Planet Trash is a band that always puts me in a good mood. This is oldschool hardcore punk. Their direct lyrics with their very clear way of expressing themselves shoot like arrows into my heart. They are not afraid of criticising the USA and their wars. The guys have been playing together since 1994. A few changes of members, but they have kept the pressure, the pace and the aggressiveness. They sing in both English and Swedish, but personally I prefer the English songs better.

During the years they have recorded quite a few songs and also participated on some collections. One of my favourites is on “Röjarskivan 2 (andra spyan)“: “I’m only here for the booze”.

In the music world of today you’ll seldom find punk rock in the nice rooms. Does it belong there? Well, you can decide for yourself. Planet Trash do belong in my nicest room anyway.
This autumn they’re going into the studio to record some more songs.

Here is a taste of punk rock at it’s best:
Chaos inside
God’s army
Now it’s our turn
Skolan är tråkig

HighrideI’m sitting here, the last day at work before the vacations, with a real cold…yes, I usually save them for my vacation. With a heavy head I am going through some tips, sent to us here at Meadowmusic, and finally I land on Highride’s Myspace page. Finally some music that clears up the pipes!

I’m hit by a Rock’n’roll energy that I really feel in my whole body. The singer Peter has a special voice, and sounds almost like he is swallowing the words, or like he is singing from deep inside. Together with grinding power chords from the guitars, this sounds surprisingly unique.

One comparison that strikes me is the one with Danko Jones. Maybe not with the same energy (but who can beat that?), but then again, I haven’t yet seen Highride live.

Stefan Lundblad & Hyrda Knektar

This is three chord rock, this is nostalgia, this is punk rock and this is truly great! The memories from my childhood room with the Swedish punk rock band Ebba Grön on loudest volume possible, charges towards me at high speed. However, this is not Ebba Grön with Thåström at the mic but Ebba with Fjodor screaming “profit” on the recording from an apartment from “Ebba the movie”!

That’s what it feels like to listen to Stefan Lundblad & Hyrda Knektar! I just enjoy it Sooo much and I’m Sooo happy that there are still artists out there creating music like this!

I’ll post three songs for download and listening. I’m afraid that the last creation “För nära kanten” (“Too close to the edge”) is of poor quality, but I’ll include it anyway… anyone who’s heard the bootleg “Where were you at -77” of the Sex Pistols will consider the song high quality stuff ;-)

Now. Turn up the volume and rock out!!!

Cowboy Prostitutes

I almost got beat up once, way back when, when I thought The Cult sounded glammy…I still think that Ian would be a great glam vocalist;-)…but I do not hesitate to say that Cowboy Prostitutes sound glam. And very wonderfully glam at that! The last time I heard this type of rock, at this accomplished level, was when I listened to Hardcore Superstars debut album.

Cowboy Prostitutes have recently released a new album “Swingin’ At the fences” that will be released in Sweden, Germany, Austria and Switzerland!

Listen and download from the new album:
