    Spotting ten modern instrumentals

    As we know, the instrumental era ended abruptly when the doomsday comet named “British Invasion” entered the skies in the early 1960s and turned the music scene upside down. Admittedly, other genres were also extinguished [...]

Sad to read about Svenne Hedlund's passing. The times I met him, he was always happy, humble with a nice subtle sense of humor.

We had an interview with Svenne in Now & Then #8 where he talks about Swedish pop life in the 60s and of course mainly about Hep Stars. He had lost his copy of the magazine so I was happy to give him some new copies. You can see him holding it in the slightly blurry picture.

Thanks for the music and memories Svenne.

Alan Vega – After Dark (album)

This second unearthing in 2021 from the late Alan Vega (1938–2016) archive, the posthumous After Dark (In The Red Recordings), is very reminiscent of Alan Vegas’ two-day improvisation with Alex Chilton, which materialized as Cubist […]

Finnkampen i sextiotalspop

What a pleasant surprise it was to reconnect with Dogmatics after so many years through their 2019 7” release She’s The One; a 1m44s pop knockout that Buddy Holly should have been proud of. The […]
