It’s a post-Gogolfest Monday, and I’m wrung out. My body is sore from dancing, brain sore from stimulation, throat sore for screaming songs outside. I do, however, have a new love, and this would be the old Swedish punk band Ebba Grön. I found out about them when talking to a friend about all great things that also happen to be Swedish. I would love to be able to get some of their lyrics translated, because right now I am mostly digging the way they sound, not being able to speak Swedish and all (it’s among one of my many faults, I’m afraid). Their Wikipedia page says that this one time, their bassist totally fought back against a neo-Nazi with his bass. It rarely gets more awesome than that.
Det Måste Vara Radion – Ebba Grön
Same In Any Language – I Nine
Fa-Fa-Fa – Datarock
Kosili Mi Sino – Soncekliosh
Sun King – the Beatles
Crossroads – Cowboy Junkies
Hold Music – Architecture in Helsinki
Got My Mojo Working – Muddy Waters
Same Shirt, Different Day – Tin Hat Trio
Flyktsoda – Ebba Grön
Don’t you just want to be there, in this video? I do:
And since we’re going with the whole Swedish goodness angle and I am in that kind of mood, here is one of Sookie’s dream sequences from the second season of “True Blood” (if you are, say, in Britain and not caught up with the show, do NOT watch this, there is a spoiler here):
Eric and Sookie are like… cream cheese and capers together – delicious.
