FILM MUSIC & RELEASE SHOW - 13-01-03


Good new year.

I spent the holidays with friends and family in the lovely village of Lur doing absolutely nothing.
Reading books about Glenn Gould and playing with children and dogs. Hope so did you.

The new film This is Martin Bonner by Chad Hartigan is playing at the Sundance Film Festival
and I am very happy to have the song Fistfighters and Steel on the soundtrack.

March 23rd has been booked in Oberhausen, so I´ll be coming down to play a show
as the 12" release of The Fall of Discontent comes out.

I am very glad to have Jonatan Knut working on the cover of this re-release.
I love his art and am utterly thrilled to have him on board this ship.

Hey då ! B

SUMMER NEWS - 11-08-03
Folks,
Summer is turning to august and the heat is beating down like a
drumstick on my bare belly. I have written songs, a few really great ones.
They are being recorded and hopefully this will end up on an album
released in december just in time for the tour.



I am recording at a theatre. A place I have been working at a bit lately.
They´re closed for the summer and have lent me the whole place.
I record on the actual stage and I must say it´s very nice. They have a great
coffee machine and I have made a little den in the corner with a mattress and some
blankets if I feel like sleeping. A truly mellow and slow recording process this time.
Very much not at all in tune with my personality. Interesting.

It is never too late to be in a bad mood.
