Per Gessles sorg hörs på nya skivan

För ett år sedan blev det klart att Marie Fredrikssons långvariga sjukdom satte stopp för den planerade världsturnén med Roxette. Det betydde att Per Gessles kalender plötsligt gapade tom och att dra ut på en turné med Gyllene Tider kändes inte rätt just då. Istället började Gessle fundera på att gö... (Source) April 26, 2017

In this short PR video #PerGessle talks about his Nashville project, that he wanted a fusion between Halmstad and Nashville; he wanted to include the Nashville sound with all the instruments and the atmosphere itself; the lyrics and Per's voice are in focus; he says there are duets on the albums and when there are 2 guys singing in a duet it's a special thing; he has a partly new band on tour: a pedal steel player and violin player are in the band too; the songs in this arrangement would sound differently, mainly Roxette songs, for example, It Must Have Been Love with a violin or so; but he still has to think the whole thing through. /PP Stills are from the video: (Source) April 26, 2017

Today it’s Record Store Day and on this occasion #PerGessle talks about one of his favourite records in a Göteborgs-Posten article about RSD and Bengans. /PP PG: ”One of my favourite LPs is from a splendid pop year, 1968. The debut album of Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood turned hot on the gramophone at home in Halmstad and helped to create an alternative universe that felt as obvious as necessary. Summer Wine and Some Velvet Morning must be among the most beautiful songs written (listen especially to Billy Strange’s string arrangements!). And Nancy & Lee's voices are both unique, sensual and cocky. All at once.” (Source) April 22, 2017

INGEN KLUNK! September 6, 2014


Tyvärr blev det ingen Klunk på Systemet pga problem med rätten till namnet. Nu kommer dock de ädla dryckerna att heta det fabulösa och lätt självklara namnet FRU NORDIN istället.
Det fanns ju en låt på EN HÄNDIG MAN-plattan som hette så, remember? Nu är hon igång igen och bjussar på sej själv via denna goda alkoholfria dryck.
FRU NORDIN VITT släpps på Systemet den 1 oktober. Och har vi lite tur så kommer den att finnas på lite olika ICA Maxi ställen i Sverige inom kort också. FRU NORDIN ROSÉ och FRU NORDIN SKUMPA ligger på lur. Stay tuned, folks! /P.
