Life is sorta shit right now. So what's better than some soothing depressing music? Well, it used to help, but no more. Still I will be seeing Bonnie Prince Billy tomorrow. On the positive side, I just had my birthday and it's one year closer to death. Good times!

Music is for the birds...

I really like Guided By Voices.
Everyone should own Mag Earwhig!.
GBV - Running Off With The Fun City Girls
(Japanese bonus track from Mag Earwhig!)
That is all.

More birds at Indietits

PJ at the Opera

So Pj Harvey was here last night. She played in the brand new wooden Oslo Opera to a packed house of hardcore ecstatic fans. She played a varied set of old and new songs. Among the standouts were White Chalk, The Devil, Bring You My Love, Send His Love To Me, Man-Size, Snake, Down By The Water, When Under Ether and the last song (and my personal favorite) The Desperate Kingdom Of Love. It was fucking loud. Too loud in some parts. I thought we would have "opera sound", but instead we got a rock and roll show in the opera. A kick ass rocknroll show. Polly wasn't shy about using pedals and making loud loud noise with her guitars and voice. The only thing that was louder last night was the crowd. The acoustics in the opera were superb.
Here is the world famous Crappy mobile phone picture extravaganza:

Yes she looks like an angel.Took a short video with my crappy crappy phone (thanks nokia!

So yeah, fun was had by all. Nothing but great reviews in the papers. "The show of the year" etc. The summer isn't over yet. Lots more great stuff on the way. Ignore or keep reedin' dear reader.

Time of the Season

I see it's about time to update this damn thing...

So it's summer here in Oslo and (almost) all is well.
Concerts galore. Burn out city.
A trip to Paris very soon and deafening music all summer long.

The Zombies - Time of the Season


One very sad note from Oslo. Spasibar, hands down the best music venue in Oslo is closing their doors. Where the hell will bands like Vialka, Gay Against You, Dj Scotch Egg, and Crash Normal play next time they are in Oslo? I was lucky enough to dj there too (takk!)...always a blast. No one took a chance on the bands Spasibar did over the last 3.5 years. It was totally unique. Not only with its Russian theme bar, but also with its clientel, bands and employees. A big hole will be left in the music scene here. Hopefully something new will come out of it. There is a desperate need. Spasibar closes its doors on June 30th. There will be a big blowout party though...

Some Siberian punk for you:
