New video

Yes, we made a new one:

And damn, it took forever to make :-).

Saturday, December 15, 2007


Just checked some of our new friends on Myspace and found this band called the_rudderless_symphonies. And it's rather good! Electro-indie with some nice programming stuff. And lazy Saturday, went to Props with my son and jpg-masta, read a few hundred pages in a Dalziel & Pascoe novel and ate the leftovers from the Christmas lunch they're having in my house today. So now it's a glass of red wine and then off to bed.

Twisterella the boat

There's been a lot of talk about the Danish Crown Prince going on stage with Led Zeppelin Jam last weekend. I'm not really a fan of the Royal Family, but at least it made me think of one of my all time favourite bands, Ride. The reason being that the Crown Prince used to like them too (I can't remember whether I heard it on the show he did with Alex Nyborg Madsen in 1995 (?) or read it in a review of a Ride album, but that's not really important anyway). Here's Twisterella:

It also reminded me of one the best concerts I've seen this year, Kirsten Ketsjer at the Yoyooyoy-festival somewhere in Copenhagen NV. So here's Kronprinz Frederik The Boat:

And damn, I'm tired.

Hangover of the week

Company Christmas thing + Soundvenue release party = my head feels like the sound of this song:

Great cover btw (and I miss 120 minutes!). And yikes, going out tonight again.

Epidemic dreams

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Yes, it's that time of year again. So.... a few presents below (and a fabulous family photo with yours truly looking like a tired old sod and Mikkel looking like he's trying out for a part in The Three Musketeers ;-)).

The first song is a new one, it's called "Epidemic dreams" and it's kinda odd (compared to what we usually do). And it reminds Camilla of sleep and purple teddy bears, which I guess means that she likes it or something.

Epidemic dreams

And do you remember the "Baby cool" video? Well, if not, I can tell you that it was recorded backwards and then reversed again, which meant that we had to do a backwards version of the song too. For some reason (and it's rather sad, when you think of it) we liked the backwards version better than the original, so we reversed the kick drum again to give it some "rhythm" and here it is (think dance meets shoegaze, I think).

Baby cool backwards

AND: There's some old stuff too. The first is the very first recording we made as pierre on my birthday (23rd of April) 2000. It's called "Petite" and it includes crap instruments and the somewhat funny lyrics: "you and me / nous sommes les morts petites". The second was recorded about a year later, it's called "Sea shell mind" and it's about a slightly weird girl we once knew (one of my ex-girlfriends to be exact :-)). And the guitar intro is so cool (in my view, that is). Neither song contains much singing (it's Mikkel's voice!), but a hell of a lot of weird shit beats (and the sound quality is bad, bad, bad, since it's very demo, but there you have it).


Sea shell mind

OH: And a video for "Cry for a shadow". Heather shot the footage in New York and Mikkel turned it into a video (and it's good, methinks). And thanks very much to Heather!

Have a good one (December, Christmas, New Year's etc. :-)).

Spain (part 2)

Oh yeah, that was one heck of a trip! Klaus&Kinski has got to be the nicest band in the world and their friends were extremely nice too. I spent my time: driving around with Marina and Alejandro while listening to indie music; seing Klaus&Kinski play two concerts; eating tapas and paella; drinking beer; and being a DJ here (I mainly played Nordic and German groups, such as Familjen, Håkan Hellström, Je M'appelle Mads, Ingenting, Bob Hund, Peter Schilling and Blumfeld). So summing it up, it was just basically four days in heaven. And here's another band from Murcia:

They're called Schwarz and Myspace is here. Also check out Alondra (who was ever so nice and ever so generous with drinks :-)). And playmovil (which is the other band of ever so nice and ever so talented Leandro from K&K :-)).

Tuesday, November 20, 2007


Yes, I'm off to Spain (or not now, Thursday morning, but still, soon enough). Off to visit Klaus&Kinski and do some DJ stuff too :-). And to celebrate, here's a video:

I actually reviewed the album a few years back (and I kinda liked it).

This song has so much sentimental value that I can't even begin to describe it. And it's a great song too :-):

Crap election. I miss Anker Jørgensen. And songs like this one:

Friday, November 9, 2007

Yeah, yeah...

I know I wrote about him before. But there's a new song by Bakers at dawn on Myspace. And there's a new EP coming up (and somebody get him a record deal, please!).

The Luyas, Said The Gramophone's hottest Canadian band of 2007, and hot, hot, hot they really are. Three great songs on their Myspace, one of which is also featured below.

The Oscillation

And why the hell hasn't anyone told me about this band before. It's dope, psychedelic and at times beautiful. Or perhaps I just miss Stone Roses, Charlatans and Primal Scream? But still, please go listen to Head Hang Low!

I'm slighty ill today

So I've been listening to the new (old) Neil Young, which is alright, though I'm not quite sure it's the masterpiece people tell me it is. And some cool shit from MC Esoteric found via imageyenation (love that place).

Which reminds me of us...

...smoking through the foreplay. This is old hat, but I'm posting it, because:
1: I have the worst hangover after a company thing last night.
2: It's the best opening line of a song ever.
3: Mas Gambios is the best album ever.
4: Herman Düne played the best concert I've ever seen.
5: I've convinced Jakmik that they're fantastic too :-).

The Static Comes From My Broken Heart

Wednesday, October 24, 2007

And crap apparently doesn't come alone...

First, the goddamn forthcoming elections, then Liverpool FC losing to Besiktas. And now the return of Aqua!? And I'm all out of beer! Someone take me somewhere nice:

(where they're not fond of Smashing Pumpkins either, thank you very much).


Elections on November 13th. And that most probably means four more years with A. Fogh which is a tough one, if you ask me. Still, I'll do my best and work voluntarily for a friend of mine who's a member of another party. But that means bizarre working hours for the next three weeks, since I also have a "normal" job + a few things to do with ONBC. So Bob's your uncle, I might as well capitulate, emigrate or whatever. And listen to this while I do so:

Monday, October 22, 2007


I'm so unbelievably tired. But what a nice weekend! Concert on Friday: splendid company and the band called Lasse & Lasse was rather cool. Recording on Saturday: went swell, we just need to fix some minor details. And the rest of Saturday was very nice too, friends came over, and we had Vodka Lemonade, beer, red wine and burgers and listened to music from the good old days :-). And on Sunday we moved all our (and mostly epo-555's) gear to another studio. And screw that, I wrote about them before and I nicked the song from Pitchfork, but I adore it, so I'll post it anyway (and it used to be my mother's favourite song, so I've heard it a million times, when I was a boy).

I'm on fire

Thursday, October 18, 2007

etc. etc....

Loads of things to do this weekend. Tomorrow I'll be going to klubklub to hang out with friends, listen to some music and get the occasional drink. And Saturday we'll be recording the last bits and pieces for a hotter than hot cover version of a song from 1981 (and we're almost talking disco here, so we're very excited!). And after that we'll hang out with some other friends and perhaps get the occasional drink there too :-).

And two songs by the motifs (rather cool, Australian, sounding like Pipas).

Coast Is Clear has the rather nice tendency of bringing good news. In this case it's the fact that the entire new, and not yet released, album by Sambassadeur is being streamed on It's called "Migration" and it's marvellous. A bit more simple and a bit more organic, perhaps, than what they're usually up to, but just as melodic and beautiful as always. So we're digging it this evening for sure.

Agent Ribbons

I've been listening to this band for the last year or so. It's not the sort of music that I would usually listen to, but somehow this got to me. It's a mixture of folk, pop, lo-fi and cabaret and it's just great really. And the voice of the front singer (Lauren Hess, I presume, otherwise Natalie Gordon, since they're the two members) is wonderful (and slightly odd in a cool way, if you ask me). Two songs below. And Myspace.

Edit: not two songs here, since the fileden is mocking me (aaargh!). But downloadable via Myspace.

Yay, the DAMPFBAHN! remix compilation is up on da net! Look and download here! Loads of cool bands appearing, such as Zvook Mescalin, Forest & Crispian, A Kid Hereafter and etc. etc. And we appear too (and had so much fun doing the remix :-)). And I have my son this weekend, so I can't go, but DAMPFBAHN! is actually playing at Lade's Kælder tomorrow. Along with Bodebrixen. So do go and dance and kill, as they say.

Wow. And wow again. They're called The Glass Beads, they're from Liverpool and I'm blown away (Merseybeat/late sixties acoustic/psychedelic are the words to remember). Go to their Myspace. Now. Or some other day, but just go there.

Lazy Saturday

Coast is clear has the brilliant news that my favourite band Klaus&Kinski has uploaded three new songs. On Myspace. And one song below. And goddamn woman, went to Jægerspris yesterday for some company party. Which ended with far too much beer and yours truly doing Devo-like dancing and air guitar stuff to "More than a feeling". Corporate world's got to love me (but cool video):

Oh, the joy of children....

Today I went to some role-playing birthday thing in a forest north of Copenhagen (didn't have to take part in it, thank the lord)! And now, I'm watching the Danish Song Contest for children (as I'm writing this the absolutely horrible BliGlad are playing!!!). Luckily I found Broken Social Scene Presents Kevin Drew here (and it's great in oh so many ways).

Gato-el-Qiman & KDÖ

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

If we ever were to change our name, I'd go for that one. Not quite sure about the music though, but "opressions" is somewhat catcy (it's hip hop btw). And speaking of cats, I've always thought that they were sort of among the smarter animals. But apparently not, since one of the cats in my house just tried (for the third time) to jump through my closed window. I mean, wtf, birds do that, but cats?

Monday, September 10, 2007

Then on Friday night we went through to the arches...

Yes, thanks to the ones who showed up for the release on Friday (we enjoyed it very much!). And grazie mille to mista cool Zvook, who's the nicest remixer around and Line (our cello favourite ;-)). And naturally, emodreng og indiepige who has written a bit about it (and do download the two songs by Zvook and Electrojuice!!!).
And the rest of weekend was mad too. Fun, though, since it included: watching football, getting pissed, going to a party, then to Apparatet, then Gauss, then Louises, and, lastly, drinking red wine in a flat at 8 o' clock in the morning. All courtesy (or at least alongside) jpg-masta. And since Sunday meant a band meeting and a few beers with the aforementioned jpg-masta, I'm really tired today. But still, went to work and did ok, I think. And please, please, please, go check out Simon Gylden. The album's out and three new songs on Myspace.

Monday, September 3, 2007

Baby cool

Hell yeah, our next single (out September 9th) can be heard on Myspace. And we spent the weekend recording some new stuff + making a video which will be very, very nice indeed. Oh, and thanks a bunch to Line for helping us with strings! Line plays in this cool band.

And oh, oh, oh. One of the songs from the single is actually a cover of an old Beat Happening song. So check the most amazing live video ever made:

Completely forgot about this song. It was on my first tape which was some sort of best of 82 thing. And it's just great, it's got the right kind of melancholic feeling and then of course there's the sentimental value (being 7 listening to music in a small house in a very small town):

On a completely different subject (namely football) I got a black eye and my first red card ever for a very hazardous tackle last week. Apparently you don't get wiser, just because you get older.

It's German hip-hop (old school, old school, old school!!!), it's such a great song and it's such a great video. They're called Kinderzimmer Productions and me loves you long time. And visit Myspace. You can listen to their newest album "Asphalt". I would recommend "Kickstart mein Hirn", "Geh kaputt" and "Die Stadt die es nicht", and when I say recommend, I really, really mean recommend. Really.

Danish folk/rock/electro dude Simon Gylden has uploaded the first single from his forthcoming album "First Man on Venus" (out September 10th). It's called "Nosebleed on the Catwalk" and I quite simply love it. It's not as "weird" as most of his older stuff and actually rather rock 'n' roll (sounds like an alternative version of a song by The Rolling Stones perhaps?). But still, it's cool, cool, cool and here's where to go.

And a video (for an old song, which I love too :-)).

Da Adrenaline Remix!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Yes, our very, very cool friend Tatu has made a remix of "Adrenaline". Tatu's from Finland and goes under the aliases Darkboy / TAT200 (and he has a band with his brother called farm animals). Normally Tatu is more into experimental rap and trip hop, but the remix has a darker and more 80ies feel to it (at least I think) and I really, really like it! So hope you'll like it too :-). Get it here. And visit Darkboy / TAT200 here.

AND.....if you feel like making a remix of our forthcoming single "Baby cool", you're still more than welcome. The files can be found here, the deadline for entries is August 19th, and the winners will be featured on Myspace in the two weeks prior to the release. So go fetch :-).

Classic of the week

The theme being nice music sounding somewhat like The Smiths. The Sundays is the obvious first choice, since their sound most definitely is Smithish. Nevertheless, I adored "Here's Where The Story Ends" when it came out, watched the video over and over again and had a teen crush on Harriet Wheeler (I'm having trouble seing why at this moment but what the hey).

And do you remember Gene? I didn't like them at first, thought they were very much a Smiths-ripoff, but somewhere along the road they grew on me (mainly due to their Roskilde concert on a drunken afternoon in 1995), so here's the "Olympian" video:

Savoir Adore

Oh, this is cool, matey: Savoir Adore, from New York, two members (Paul & Deirdre). And I haven't got the foggiest idea on how to describe it (but perhaps a mix between CYHSY, casio stuff, dreamy synths and pop?). And the songs are rather short. Three songs for download via Myspace. And I'm back from my holiday, yay :-)!

it hugs back...

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Received a mail from Too Pure with a short introduction to their Singles Club which they'll launch in September. The whole idea behind the club being a monthly release of a 7' single with two previously unreleased songs (500 copies only, so rather exclusive). The band of December is It Hugs Back which I had never heard of before, so I went and checked it out. And it's alright, nothing special, but alright still. For some reason they insist that it's shoegaze and Drowned In Sound even calls it "the soundtrack produced if Evan Dando and Kevin Shields were making love in a log cabin" (I'm more inclined to think that it sounds like a somewhat boring version of Mojave 3, but then again what the hell do I know). But check it out on Myspace, if you feel like it. And da video:

And now I'm off on vacation, off to beautiful South of Jutland (and just ever so slightly boring too, but don't tell anyone).

The Bracelets

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Found this band on Myspace (naturally). And it's terribly good, the keywords being country/post-rock/atmospheric indie. It's a trio (Tim, Lindsay and Ian) from Madison, Wisconsin and their not very informative homepage seems to suggest that they're practically done with their new album (so far they've appeared on a compilation and released an EP). Yes, so go visit Myspace. And watch this video (bad quality, sorry):

Oh, and visit the homepage too.

Classic of the week, part 2

Oh, since I'm the editor and since I didn't post while I was at Roskilde, you get this part 2 thing. When I was writing about Seigmen and their cover of "Som et strejf af en dråbe" I got to thinking that I really needed to do a Gasolin / Kim Larsen post. In my view they're the best thing that ever happened to Danish music, and I know it's sort of sentimental, because they're the ones that I (and most Danes my age) grew up with, but I still love most of the old songs, so what is a man to do. So here are three of my favourites:

This is me growing up and being social-realistic in the 70ies (although I like the original better than this live version).

The same as the above applies (and Mikkel and I used to play this song in our not very famous cover band Sylter Sylt, Bagagerummet 9, Støj-Band. AND we once got a few hundred quid for playing it at Pinden in Aarhus :-)).

I remember not being allowed to see the movie, because I wasn't old enough (and the original with the beats and stuff is better, but it's still a beautiful song).

And if I could (but I can't find it), I would have posted "Længes hjem", because if I had to mention an all-time favourite it would be that one :-).

Thursday, July 12, 2007

Classic of the week

Going to Roskilde suddenly reminded me of Norwegian band Seigmen. They played an astonishing concert in 1995 (as far as I remember they ended the concert with a very long version of their cover of "Som et strejf af en dråbe" which was just incredibly cool!). Before that they played this song (and watching 3000 Norwegians sing along on the chorus was almost scary ;-)):

The song is a cover too (of Norwegian band deLillos). That is almost impossible to believe if you watch this video of a song called "Tøff i Pysjamas" (but their front singer and main man Lars Lillo-Stenberg is cooler than most and it speaks for itself that he has a very large collection of Neil Young records :-)):

Wednesday, July 11, 2007

Back from Roskilde

Ooooooh yes, we're back from Roskilde. Or rather, we've been back since Sunday, but it isn't before today that I feel just slightly fit (and capable of writing here for example). I saw loads of concerts (or at least a few minutes of a great deal), and I kinda thought that there were many good this year. The cool ones included:

J Rocc from the Stones Throw Records-thing (his set was very, very cool, while the rest of the concert was extremely bad or at least really, really boring).

The Brian Jonestown Massacre (which was just cool to a point beyond belief, in my next life I want to be the tambourine man).

120 Days (which is just what you need when you're drunk to a point beyond belief).

LCD Soundsystem (for being them and the fact that I had great company).

Canadian videos

I don't know why I hadn't heard of Elevator to Hell (later renamed Elevator Through, and now just Elevator) before a few weeks ago. The band is an offspring of one of my favourite teen obsessions Eric's Trip, so I was kinda bewildered when I suddenly stumbled upon this other band that I had never heard of via Myspace. Anyways, it's not quite as good as Eric's Trip, but their mix between lo-fi indierock and some very psychelic stuff is interesting to say the least. They've released a very large number of albums, cd-r's etc. etc. (and they're apparently recording a new LP or EP at the moment) and you can hear some of it on their myspace. Or perhaps watch this video:

And here's some Eric's Trip too (this song is immensely cool, please listen to the drums!):

And what the heck, here's a Julie Doiron video too (very art girl stuff, but the song's a good one):

Sunday, July 1, 2007

Classic of the week

This week's classic is OMD's "Enola Gay". Firstly, because it's one of those 80ies songs that I grew up with, recorded on tape and basically just loved. And I still do, the synth melody is fantastic and the beat/drums/bass section is just...well cool. So here's the video:

Secondly, because ONBC made a cover of "Enola Gay" back in 2001 (actually we were called pierre back then, but that's ancient history now). At the moment we're sending it to the blogs that has written about us + our mailing list as a sort of exclusive treat (we won't be releasing it due to a broken down harddisk). Anyways, can't really remember recording it, but it includes Camilla's beautiful voice, a noisy guitar section and an "aaaah-aaaah" choir by Mikkel and yours truly. Oh, and since this is a blog too, it's added below:

And here's the wiki (nothing to do with the song as such, just a quick history lesson, if you didn't know it already).

Saturday, June 30, 2007

it's just details, don't worry about it

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

bakers at dawn is a one man project from Malmo, Sweden (the man behind it being Markus). He used to play under the alias Big Ship and relased one cd-r album on Canarie Records called "You Got Your Fathers Mother", which was really good. He switched artist name sometime last year, I think, but the style hasn't changed much (never change a winning concept :-)).

And the music is really cool, we're talking very, very lo-fi and melancholic, mostly acoustic, rock with some really catchy melodies. The songs below are my two absolute favourites, "Lay it aside" (synths extravaganza and the I-hate-myself-and-I-want-to-die feeling) and "Camera" (great chorus, superb ending, think Eric's Trip meeting an even sadder Swede). And on Myspace you can find (and download) some newer stuff too ("Ancestor contest" would be my choice of the day).


Friday, June 29, 2007


Yes, it's time for the quick introduction to Klaus&Kinski. It's a band from Murcia, consisting mainly of Alejandro (most instruments) and Marina (most vocals), with some occasional help from Paco and Daniel. I found them last year on Myspace and was immediately addicted to their sweet mix of pop and Spanish folk music with a slight hint of electronica. For that reason ONBC asked them if they were interested in making a cover/remix/whatever of our single "Shell for the mourning", which they were. They did what you might call a complete make-over and turned our rather simple song into a downbeat/upbeat/fuzzguitar version with a few new melodies included as well (and there was much rejoicing in camp ONBC :-)). Besides that they were also very kind and sent me a copy of their demo, which is just amazing. It consists of 17 of their own songs (+ cover versions of "Souvenir" (OMD) and "Here comes the sun" (The Beatles)), among which "En la cama", "Me vas a destrozar" and "Flashback al reves" are my favourites (if I had to mention just three). And now they've gone and made a video for the latter.

So go watch, while Klaus&Kinski flashes you through cars, beaches and refrigerators (it's a very good video :-)):
