I'll be moving over here:

The reason? Well, it's what I do most of the time anyway, so... And I'll still rant about crap football teams as Brøndby, Roma and Liverpool (though at the moment I'm loving St. Pauli), show videos and perhaps even reintroduce the concept of the erratic behaviour of a drunken man, 'cos it was kinda fun.

I'll also be drumming a bit here:

See you on the other side :-).

Ok, November...

You just made my day. First The Walkmen, and now this, sweet momma, it's cool!!!:

Friday, September 17, 2010

X sessions and more...

Damn, I'm tired. Rehearsing + a few beers apparently ain't no good on a Thursday. But good news:

And we'll be playing a semi-acoustic concert next Thursday on Nørrebro Bryghus, too.

But tonight: Doing stuff on Facebook, having a bit of red wine and writing some lyrics. And relaxing. And tomorrow just finishing the crap novel I'm reading now.

False Priest...

of Montreal streaming here. Naturally, I love it, funky shit, weird/cool lyrics and all that!

Tuesday, August 31, 2010


Yay, first "real" concert last Friday! And it went well, everyone was happy, we had beers and ended at Jolene's for a dance or two. Pictures here.

On Saturday we went to another party, had beers and a dance or two, too.

And forget about Broken Social Scene, this is what I'm gonna do on the 22nd of November!!!:

Old tuna...

Phew, I've been busy. Applications, rehearsing, filming, recording, rehearsing etc. etc. So have a look at this extremely funky site:

And watch this very, very, very sad video :-):

Farvel min Kjeld from Ærlige Manja on Vimeo.

Thursday, August 12, 2010


Off to record drums for two Boombox songs! And Tempomatador rehearsing tomorrow and Saturday (and then some dancing on Rust afterwards). Speaking of drums, check this song out (thanks Soundvenue):

Dungen - Skit I Allt from Mexican Summer on Vimeo.

Concert for the van...

That was fun, Boombox and Tempomatador both played 4 songs and it was such a nice party with a load of nice people. And check this out, it's the promo video for the Paper Planes Festival, yay!:

The Walkmen

This band is cool beyond belief, Lisbon out on September 14th (it's been leaked btw and it's brilliant!).

Tuesday, August 3, 2010


Has been pretty busy. Holidays. Recordings. Rehearsing. Writing lyrics. Drinking Italian Mojitos. Seeking jobs. So with the lyrics done and the holidays over, it's back to recording, rehearsing and seeking jobs only :-).

AND: Vega the 22nd of November, oh yeah, I'm sooooo there!:


Tempomatador is the new band name. First concert on the 27th. And small concert with both Boombox and Tempo on Saturday the 7th.

Tuesday, July 6, 2010


That was fun! Beautiful people, beautiful music, beautiful whatnot. Best concerts: Beach House, Pavement, Prince. Saw pretty cool stuff from Gonjasufi, Kellermensch and LCD Soundsystem too. Titus Andronicus and Motörhead played the same song 20 times. And C.V. Jørgensen was nice and comfy and just what you needed at the time.
Apart from that just hanging out and having huge amounts of fun! And thanks to CJ for the late, late, late mixtape ;-):

Wednesday, June 30, 2010


Off tomorrow! Nothing much planned, just:

I'll be bringing shorts this year, as it seems it'll hit 30 degrees.

I'll try to drink less beer and more water :-).

And I'll start here:

And end here:

World Cup Special 1994

Oh, the misery! Baggio played a beautiful tournament and Italy reached the final. And lost!

(I actually had to go powder my nose / cry a bit in the bathroom after Baggio's missed penalty :-)).

Friday, June 18, 2010

World Cup Special 1990

Oh yeah! Here starts my fascination for the Italian team. Or rather, it actually started two years earlier, when my father invited me to Germany to see the European Championships and Italy beat Denmark 2-0 (jpg-manja-Jesper and CJ will hate this, but I also won 800,- guessing the result ;-)). Anywho, in 1990 I understood tactics and since I'd always been a defender, I really liked the Italian cool defence, the technically skilled midfield and especially the role of the trequartista or number 10. Or in this case the number 15, here's a tribute to my all time favourite player, he was kinda strange, a Buddhist and had the weirdest haircut (hence his nickname "The Divine Ponytail").

Apart from Baggio the tournament was crap, though. Boring as hell and Germany won. And here's the sad story of the English exit:

World Cup Special 1986

This is fun :-). 1986 was the first "real" World Cup for me. I watched most of the games or at least saw the sports news and read the papers, so I was able to make my own statistics. Yup, it's slightly insane, but I just located 10 pages with my tournament facts:

1: I had my own grading system ranging from 1 ("bad") to 9 ("super fantastic world class").
2: I really liked Careca, so he became the best player of the tournament, ahead of Maradona :-).
3: Because of Careca, Brazil was my team (when they lost the game against France, my notes say: "ooooooooh noooooooo. SHIT"). Here's the game in question:

Naturally, I was also a fan of Denmark. And was really, really pleased that Germany didn't win (despite making a pretty amazing comeback like in 82). Here's the final:

World Cup Special 1982

Well, I looooove the World Cup, so I've decided to make a Special series of all the World Cups I've seen. Here's the first match I vividly remember watching:

It's well known for the German comeback and the insane Schumacher tackle on Battiston. Other facts from that year:
My favourite team was Argentina, because they had the coolest jerseys (I had a large poster from BP with all teams hanging in my room).
I watched the first part of the tournament in Denmark and the rest in Norway. And I really liked that Italy (now that Argentina didn't) took the trophy, as my father was a fan of Germany and you sort of never like the same stuff as your parents.
My Norwegian uncle named his dog Rossi after the topscorer of the tournament. Here he is in another classic from that year (and I'm pretty sure that I saw the game in Skive on my way to Norway, but I might be wrong on that one :-)):

Sunday, June 13, 2010

Oh yeah!

Brilliant week! Distortion was nice, the recording's been nice and even the jobseeking's been nice. And other things too :-). And according to some you're old, if you like Creedence, but I really like it, and check the guitar in this one, that's goddamn hot shit!:

Ten Feet Up...

And Norway was nice, indeed! Now I'm back to finding jobs that I'd like to have. And writing lyrics. While I've been doing that I've been spending a bit of time in here. It's Copenhagen X Sessions and it's pretty goddamn cool, check this out for instance:

And yay, Boombox did one too, which will be up later (and I'm very, very much looking forward to the Monkey Cup Dress session!!!).

And Distortion tomorrow, ooooooh yeah!

Friday, May 28, 2010


Soooooo busy writing mails to radios, writing applications, writing lyrics! And off to Norway tomorrow:

Sunday, May 16, 2010

Wee bit tired...

Here's a recap, to busy to write:
Today: Yay bronze to Brøndby! S
ending out new Boombox track "Gold".
Yesterday: Monkey Cup Dress had photo shoot at my house.
Friday: Uploading "Gold". Etc.
Thursday: Mixing and mastering "Gold" at Baby Factory.
Wednesday: Writing applications.
Tuesday: Rehearsing with Drømmenes Bodega.
Monday: Practising ukulele :-).

And been listening quite a bit to John Mogensen this week:

Sunday, April 25, 2010


Yup, turned 35 on Friday. Wonderful evening with friends, beer and dancing! Saturday on the other hand was spent with friends, beer, art stuff and crap telly! Today I've steered clear of the beer and instead written a near perfect pop song and had a long walk in the sun :-). And been listening to this:

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Thanks NPR!

The new Broken Social Scene!

And thanks Junip for a brilliant song, too!

Sunday, April 18, 2010


The Popfest was huge fun! We played pretty goddamn cool for a first concert, so we were very happy! And afterwards hanging out, drinking beers and for some reason Fernet Branca. And saying hi to Stytzer (always a pleasure!) and having fries with ooh ooh ooh ooh (always a pleasure, too :-)!).

Check this video btw, I'm guessing that the cameraman is, well a man :-):

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

And almost forgot...


Soundtrack of the summer...

This one, no doubt about it!!!:

Friday, April 9, 2010

Holy cannoli

That was one helluva Thursday! Eifel bar, then rehearsal, then Dyrehaven, McKluud, Jolene and Café Sommersted. So tonight=relaxation.

And check this out, that's the way to take a killer track and then just make it better, sweet momma:

Monday, April 5, 2010


Ain't it neat? Just hanging, coffee, playing guitar. And making mixtapes. Check them funky ass drums on track 3, please!

Saturday, March 27, 2010

Drunk girls...

New LCD Soundsystem. It's cool enough, but am I the only one thinking?:

And off to a wedding, yay!

Wednesday, March 24, 2010


I've started listening to KEXP. And oh momma, that's nice. Today, for instance, I heard both this:

And this:

Plus a huge amount of other cool bands. Rather much cooler than Danish radio, if you ask me.

Monday, March 22, 2010

Hell yeah...

New Boombox photos.

And stream the new Klaus&Kinski album on Myspace. Go! Go! Go!

Wednesday, March 17, 2010


They played this one this morning:

Pretty much perfect, when you're having a day off to write applications (which means copy-pasting / drinking coffee / playing a bit of guitar / sitting and looking out the window).

Thursday, March 11, 2010

Friday, please...

Yup, we'll be having a combined dinner / rehearsal with The Boombox Hearts tomorrow. Much fun, I think.

Stream the new Serena Maneesh, btw.

And I'm thinking that this will be an indie disco floorfiller this year. Sounds like New Order meeting noise from hell meeting disco and a weird beat:

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

LCD Soundsystem

Yup, there's a new one out. It's pretty goddamn cool, if you ask me, rather Beatles- / Lennon-ish in a good way!

And back to coffee and Orhan Pamuk. I really don't know, whether I find his novel "The Museum of Innocence" well written or appallingly badly written, but I'll give it a hundred or so more pages before deciding. Lazy Tuesday, oh yeah!

Sunday, March 7, 2010


I've rediscovered Chromatics (the DJ played a song after the Beach House concert):

And done nothing this weekend. Just a bit of laundry, some coffee at Kalaset and writing lyrics for yet another sad song :-).

Wednesday, March 3, 2010


Beach House, dancing, Grotten / mixing Boombox, 20ies party / Bang & Jensen, rehearsing, Props / job, rehearsing / job, rehearsing, Harbo Bar. That's my calendar since Friday, so just a wee bit tired today. So I've taken the day off just to relax and do some cleaning and that sort of thing around the house.

And I think I forgot to mention that I bought this mighty fine book by Sarah Bodil Hansen (very cool drawings, if you ask me).

Thursday, February 25, 2010

Beach House

Tomorrow. Loppen. It's gonna be sweet.

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

World sick etc.

Broken Social Scene all over the net. And the new song here.

And two new songs by Klaus & Kinski. And a new album out in March, yay!

Now back to Champions League!

Saturday, February 20, 2010

Charlotte Kalla...

I love The Winter Olympics. Especially Cross Country Skiing and Ice Hockey. And I'm always hoping that the Swedish athletes will win. Like Charlotte Kalla (gold the other day). Or Anna Haag (silver yesterday). So I'm gonna skip Rust tonight and watch stuff from Vancouver, while sipping some wine and writing lyrics for a song with a Chinese / Morricone sort of theme.

Friday, February 19, 2010


More pictures here. And the trip was cooler than cool. In more ways than one, as it was 3 degrees below inside, when we arrived. But after some initial technical problems, we played and played and etc.. And recorded quite a few pretty cool songs.

And the house and the surroundings were magnificent (and we made pizzas in the stone oven :-)). Oh, and Halmstad seems a nice city. And the trip was almost a complete fail, as the we were stopped by the police for driving a car without proper papers (fault of the rental company, though, so we were allowed to drive on). And Saturday started with a leaking gas oven, which was a bit scary, to say the least (and nauseating, too).

And for the last two days I've been recording bongos, tambourines, shakers and whatnot with Mikkel. And drinking beer while doing that, so completely knackered today. So apart from perhaps going to Rust din Røv tomorrow, I ain't gonna do nothing this weekend.

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

Tonight's the night...

Or actually, no. But on Friday Mikkel Max & Drømmenes Bodega will be going to Sweden to record as many songs as possible! I can't believe how much I'm looking forward to that, it's gonna be splendid and then some. And right now, I'm making a cd for the trip. This one's on it:

Sunday, January 31, 2010


Yay! And double yay! I've been trying to find this song for ages (couldn't remember the title):

And what a beautiful night. Köttbullar at Kalaset, and then Props, Drone, Oak Room, Gefährlich, Understellet. And snow, snow, snow.

Friday, January 22, 2010

Submarine sessions...

Ui. Mikkel Max og Drømmenes Bodega. Or 3 of us, anyway. Playing in a submarine. It's pretty nice, methinks :-).

Wednesday, January 20, 2010


Wild day. Due to the financial crisis I didn't get my contract renewed, so now I have until May to find out whether I should find a new job or work fulltime as a musician for the rest of the year. Hmmm, dunno.

And Boombox will be playing the first concert at the Copenhagen Popfest, yay!

And stream the new Beach House, pleeeeease! It's soooooo great!

Sunday, January 17, 2010

1:18 and onwards...

I would like to be the dude in the middle. And I might just keep on posting about Warpaint, it's a very, very, very cool EP (think Blonde Redhead, The Cure and psychedelia and then just buy it).

And momma, I'm tired. Beers on Friday. Rehearsing and beers yesterday.

Saturday, January 9, 2010

I think I'm in love...

Or, not really. But the bass player is pretty hot:

And the song is extremely cool, too!

Friday, January 8, 2010

Back again...

New Year's was great. And then just recording. Soooo.... Two new Boombox Hearts songs via this blog.

And TIRED! Managed to make Pasta Puttanesca and now I'm just gonna relax. Read some P.D. James, perhaps. And sleep.

Oh, and watch this video (via It's a trap):
