February 26th, 2022, we performed at Gyllene Cirkeln on Sveavägen in Stockholm. Guests that evening were Janne Schaffer and Anders F. Rönnblom. As the Russian attack on the Ukraine had occurred only two days before the concert, Anders wanted to perform his song Europa Brinner. So we learned the song that day and played it in the evening. It felt so strong that we decided to record our own version and this we did just a couple of weeks later, with both Anders and fab songbird Amanda Örtenhag guesting. Göran translated the Swedish lyrics to English.
Released in February 2022, this single comprises two songs. Astronomy Domine is our very special version of the first song on the first Pink Floyd album. A bit of a challenge, but I think we did it justice. The second song is one of ours: Asteroids. So both songs have a kind of spacial theme. The “special” with Asteroids is the guest guitarist – Janne Schaffer. Janne has had a long career since the beginning of the 70’s working as guitarist and arranger for various artists (ABBA, Ted Gärdestad), as well as songwriting for the Electric Banana Band and his own many solo albums. It was fantastic to have Janne onboard for Asteroids!
A year ago we were asked if we would like to interpret an Anders F Rönnblom song “Hon Håller Ut Över Vintern”, which was originally released in 1971 on the album “Din Barndom Skall Aldrig Dö”. The song has now been released on Rönnblom’s 3-CD 50th anniversary album. The interpretations are being released to streaming sites one by one, and ours is out now.
The album Blackbirds is now out on streaming sites. In addition to all the songs on the vinyl Blackbird album, four more great tracks have been added: Arnold Layne, Lucifer Sam, Here I Go and the weird and wonderful Bike/Ted Balding with the Weather. You can find the whole album on Spotify (link in the title above), iTunes and YouTube.
