5 years giving the middle finger 2006-2011

In December 2006 we put out the third issue a fanzine called Skitliv! In that zine we included as a free christmas gift, the first recording ever with Warvictims. It was not only the first Warvictim record but also the first record in the D&R stable.
That was five years ago, time flies. We printed 100 canvas bags with our logo + a band list of all the bands we've worked with so far to celebrate our five year anniversary. These bags was given away and sent to bands we released, labels and distros we worked with + a few dedicated d-beaters who's supported and helped D&R through the years. We had never survived a week if it were not for all of you, so thank you very much!

We now have ONE bag left and we give everyone the same opportunity to buy it. The first who email us will also get it!
Update: GONE!

Kissan Päivät #2, fyrtal i fanzine (in swedish)

Denna blaska låg i postboxen veckan innan jul och jag har dåligt samvete för att jag inte peppat fler folk till att köpa Kissan Päivät förrän nu. Vet inte varför jag förtjänar gratis lektyr, men jag tackar och bockar. Klart ett av de bättre zinen jag läst på mycket länge, rekommenderas varmt! I början av 2012 så är nog ännu ett höjdar zine tryckt och klart. Jag väntar ivrigt. Nån som har ett ex till övers av Levande Begravd maila mig. Släng på ett ex av senaste Ex Ánimo och du har fyrtal i svenska fanzine. Svin bra att folk laddar papper!

Surviving the storm...

A storm (Dagmar) swept across Sweden around Christmas, while I was up in the mountains, and I had to build an igloo and wait for better weather. As you might imagine, I've been without internet the past few days. I took a few photos before the camera batteries died.

This picture was taken from inside the snow cave. Cozy little "house" with enough space for two. At night you could hear the wolves howl.

Soundtrack: November - Sekunder

Top 10 on It's A Trap!

Here are my top 10's for 2011.

Kalender Für Alle part 24 of 24

Then was the exciting conclusion finally here, the last episode of Kalender Für Alle. Hope you had as much fun as I. I'm in the mountains now during the holidays, resting and having a great time. Just to get as far away as possible from the shit (christmas celebrations). But I have to admit one thing, I also have a tradition every year on this day. It is to watch Bad Santa, it's the closest I come christmas. Perhaps the best way to celebrate a day like this. Previous years I've always been in the studio, recording, but not this year. Okey then, gotta go, have a nice day my friends wherever you are! Outside it's snowing and it's time for some breakfast.

Jul i den kungliga huvudstaden... (in swedish)

Det drar ihop sig till firandet av Jesu födelse i vårt avlånga land. Jag skakar på huvudet och ifrågasätter folks dubbelmoral och hela jippot som sådant. Det damp hur som helst ned ett julstämningsfullt mail ifrån en god vän i Stockholm här på morgonkvisten. Jag tyckte att det var en så vacker och skön beskrivning av hur julen gör sig påmind på en tunnelbana nära dig:

På väg in till stan nu på tbanan.... Julen är här...en kvinna som bryter på finska ylar om änglar o jesus och att dans är synd. En man som ser ut som tomten i nedpissade kläder satte sig i samma fyrkant som henne och muttrar o skrattar högt och ljudligt. Dricker folköl från Ica. God jul"

Soundtrack: Tsjuder - Desert Northern Hell

Kalender Für Alle part 21 of 24

Swedish documentary from 1995 about animal rights with Refused (no english sub).

"Jag undrar hur dem har tänkt sig i förlängningen om att låta alla djuren leva fritt. Vad händer då? Om dem bara...ligger och själv dör på gatorna...och...ja...jag vet inte hur dem har tänkt sig det där".

Citaten haglar fritt.

Bill Hicks the American

Too tired to do anything, to alert to sleep so I sat in front of the TV, hoping to fall asleep last night. I zapping around in a few minutes in anticipation of Seinfeld would start before I turned on "En komikers död" (American the Bill Hicks story) on Svt2. I've never heard of Bill in the past but the little I saw of his shows were accurate, sometimes very dark and brilliant. He was a sober drunk who's not hypocritical in that he liked magic mushrooms and other drugs. Of course, he died prematurely of cancer. Such a waste.

I really like this quote from one of his acts about flags and freedom:
"Our emotions are running wild and our minds have stopped man. That flag burning thing, god did that bring up some retarded emotions... The flag! The flag! They said we can burn the flag!!! they didn't say that, they said if a guy burns a flag he probably doesn't have to go to jail... For a fucking year! People going... "Hey buddy, let me tell you something... My daddy died for that flag!" Really? I bought mine, you know they sell them in K-mart, three bucks. "He died in the Korean war for that flag." Well want a coincidence! Mine was made in Korea! He didn't die for a fucking flag, it's just a piece of cloth, he died for what the flag represents and that is the freedom To Burn The Fucking Flag!"

Anyone who knows where I can find out more about Bill Hicks? Shows, movies, books? If you, like me, didn't know about Bill, wanna get a good laugh or just want to know more then I can highly recommend this documentary to begin with.

Never mind the twenty-first century - F.T.H #1

A lot of people asked me over the years how I got in touch with punk for the first time and what bands I started listening to. So here you are, for the first time, I have compiled a collection of some of my first favorite bands/songs from back in the days when it all started. As you can imagine, it was impossible to pick all the songs that I wanted to, this is only a small selection. There is probably no immediate surprises or songs you never heard before, but this was at least the beginning for me.
The year was 1992 and I had listened to hard rock (Iron Maiden, Kiss, W.A.S.P, Twisted Sister, Ac/Dc, Metallica and more...) since kindergarten, so I already had a good foundation. The first contact I had with punk music and punks was via a friend's older brother and his wild smoking/drinking skateboarding friends. He lent me three LPs that changed my life forever. It was the "Sex Pistols - Never Mind the Bollocks", "Ramones - Loco Live" and "KSMB - Aktion".
I was hooked after that and had a constant craving for more. Every now and then I went to our local record stores Guntans, Skivbörsen and Skivhörnan where I spent a lot of hours, maybe days, listened and bought new records right up until all three stores closed down. This is my life, this is the only thing I know...

* SEX PISTOLS; the first punk band I ever heard and it made a huge impression on me, although I think that they had the ugliest cover I've ever seen. At least compared to my old records such as Iron Maiden and Kiss. Sid Vicious was my biggest idol for several years and I had the same black haircut, leather jacket and a necklace that he had. Still think that this is one of the best punk/rock albums ever.
* DEAD KENNEDYS; they had a different and unique sound/style and I loved Jello Biafra's vocals. For some reason I imagined that he was mentally ill. Haha.
* RAMONES; kings of "4-takt" with countless hits. Ramones is the living proof that simple three chord songs are the best. "Now I want to sniff some glue" was The first song I ever learned to play on bass. A really hard song to learn, especially on bass I tell you.
* KSMB; the first punk band that I heard singing in swedish. I had only listened to swedish pop and Magnus Uggla previously. KSMB was so much rawer and they had lyrics I could relate to. The song "En slemmig torsk" stand out among their other songs. It was hard to decide since they have so many great songs, but this song spun a few extra rounds on my stereo when I was 13 years old.
* CHARGED G.B.H; it was by a local band named Ultima Fule I drew the attention of G.B.H. They did a cover of "Knife Edge" and I thought it was so damn hard. The singer Reine later introduced me to many other great bands, not just G.B.H. and not only punk music.
* BLITZ; a little side-track was the oi punk that came and went during the early years. I have alot of other favourites like Infa-Riot, Business and Attak but it was always Blitz that made me want to go out and fight. Someone's gonna die tonight!
* BAD RELIGION; I fell in love with their logo long before I even heard the band. I was often questioned by teachers and grown-ups when I had my Bad Religion t-shirt. The early stuff with BR is the best, but I also think that both "Suffer" and "Against The Grain" are two really good albums too.
* ASTA KASK; next to Mob 47 Asta Kask have been one of the most influential swedish band on me. I thought they played extremely fast and their lyrics spoke directly to me in some way. They just had that perfect sound, hard to describe, but I loved it. The swedish language made ​​it easier to sing along and it affected more than the english bands. I have probably played covers of most of their songs during my youth. To see Asta Kask live in 2003 was absolutely wonderful since they have always been close to my heart.
* MISFITS; it was the same story as with Bad Religion, I had seen the Misfits skull months before I heard the music. My friend's brother had such a sticker on his skateboard, so I knew it would be hard, and I was not disappointed. They looked so dangerous on the band photos and I had the same hairstyle as them over a period. Misfits grew over the years and by that I mean that their songs from the 80's is the best and that it only got better the older I became.
* STIFF LITTLE FINGERS; without any expectations I borrowed "Inflammable material" from a good friend around -94. He was very fond of his new discovery and thought I should give them a listen. This is by far S.L.F best album and it's a great record to bring on tour. The last time we had it in the car stereo was on our Japanese tour.
* THE EXPLOITED; I'm probably one of few that really mean it when I say that I think that Exploited is great. It was really hard just to pick one song, they have so many, like all the other bands. Haha. I had plans to tattoo the Exploited skull when I turned 18, but one of my best friends did it before me. Maybe it was for the best cause I had not wanted to have that tattoo today. It was also because of Wattie I cut my first mohawk. Another memory I have is when my mother had been in Stockholm for the weekend and came home with an Exploited shirt. I was happy for months, imagine what little was required at the time.
* RIXVÄG 40; a local band that I guess that many of you have not heard before. It was difficult to select between them and Sector Sexs (also a local band) since they are at least as good, if not even better. I really looked up to both bands and it was them who made ​​me want to start playing music from the very beginning. Rixväg 40 was the first punk band I saw live and that's the main reason why I picked them. They played at a youth center (in exactly the same youth center where I only one year later took my first chords) where they had 13 years age limit and I was only 12. My older friends kindly opened the back door for me. I managed to see two songs before the working staff threw me out, and so it continued through the whole concert. That night I fell asleep with the world's biggest smile on my face, I had a weird feeling throughout my body, a feeling I never had before. I was in love with punk. Such a cheesy ending...

Oljudet 2,5 gratis mixtape och A-lagsalliansen (in swedish)

Dubbelplatta lokal hip-hop finns nu att ladda ned helt gratis HÄR!

Challe Warvictim och Orbkod -11 återfinns bl.a med ett par spår på mixtapet. Gratis är gott, sen om du gillar/hatar ripprapp är en annan femma. Fick en skiva av A-Lagsalliansen igår också, där lägger jag en vers om vad jag har i "Mina lurar" när jag är ute och promenixar:

Har avancerat upp min freestyle till en mp3
och mina lurar är rätt kräsna dem vill ha kvalité
det är tidens tempo den här gubben hänger inte med
och lära gamla hundar att sitta, är knappast nån idé
det finns inga dåliga väder, finns bara dåliga kläder
så länge jag har min musik trotsar jag alla väder
frösön runt jag klockar in på en timme,
förösker lyssna på så mycket som jag bara möjligen hinner
en klassisker med black sabbath eller ac/dc
eller varför inte nån av allan edwalls vackra visor
some kind of blue, disclose och tiger lou
giftgasattack, john colltrane och radiohead
allaywan funkar lika bra som mobbade barn
och en svart natt kräver nifelheim eller watain
förra veckan fick jag nya spår från el parador
en perfekt mix mellan jävligt soft och jävligt hårt

Refrängen snodde jag rakt av från Bob Hund.

Din punkmusik räddar liv! (in swedish)

För fjärde året i rad är det nu dags för Musikhjälpen igen. Fjolåret drog in strax över tolv miljoner kronor till "Barn är inte till salu", i år är det "Alla flickor har rätt att gå i skola" som står på menyn. Dem brukar kunna kulta med en och annan intressant eller rolig gäst i glasburen plus att man brukar kunna få höra musik som aldrig annars spelas i radion. Tyvärr har jag inte så mycket till övers för Kodjo och hans spex, man får försöka härda ut. Vad kan Vi då göra för att bidra? Önska en låt vettja, mer punk/hårdrock i etern för fan! Ös på bara. Och inga dåliga undanflykter nu.
Det närmar sig julafton och folk stressar omkring som yra höns och strör pengar omkring sig som om det inte fanns någon morgondag. Konsumtionen finner inga gränser. Lägg pengarna där det gör skillnad istället för på nå värdelösa julklappar som bara är ouppskattade ändå. Julen är dessutom en kristen högtid, står ni bakom sånt? Har precis önskat Jesus var en tomte med Rövsvett. Förhoppningarna är inte sååå stora men man kan ju alltid hoppas...

UPPDATERING; klockan är strax efter 01:30 och Pst Q klev just in i glasburen (pepp som satan) med en tavla som jag tänker buda på.

Tapes, tapes, tapes...

Here you have a bunch of demo tapes that I think you should check. My personal favorites are:
Total War
(Canada), Foat is one hell of a nice guy and he keep that d-beat rollin no matter what. Brutal raw punk sound!! Vinyl soon?
(Sweden), this demo is much better then the 7" I got some month ago. Better sound and much better songs. Nevermind the "members of..." or that it's the same guy who have recorded/mixed Ghost, Maim etc. Listen to the tape and let the music talk!
Avverkad (Germany), a new acquaintance for me. They got this great crusty hardcore feeling that I love.

There are those who call me outdated, well...fuck you! You told me the exact same thing when I continued to buy vinyl when the CD made ​​the entrance in the 90's. Look at you now. Fools. I have a few extra copies of Kylesa and No Hope For the Kids tapes if you are interested. 40sek + postage.

TBL - Minneslucka 2

Tages Banan Lager
feat. Thräshers (Shit Life).

Thräshin' up Östersund, dag 3 (in swedish)

Hemresan finns det inte så mycket att skriva om. Raka vägar, skog, tystnad, trötta kroppar och kaffestopp.

Klassisk vy i den bakre delen av Thräshwagon.

Landade i Östersund 15-tiden, körde direkt på tingan och började rigga. Peken Olofsson kände sig trött efter att han sovit nästan hela vägen hem så han la sig på scenen och vilade medan resten styrde ljud/ljus. Ingen rast ingen ro, direkt hem, gå på affärn, laga mat, styra, slafsa i sig maten, in på tings igen, kort soundcheck och sedan körde vi igång.
Dodeskaden gjorde lätt sin bästa spelning. Redan i Luleå blev jag glatt överraskad över deras senaste tillskott. Själv va det som att någon hade stängt av maskineriet för jag va så förbannat trött, less och på dåligt humör. Gjorde kanske en av de sämsta spelningar jag någonsin gjort men stämningen i publiken var på topp, typ begravningsvaka. Trots det blev vi inropad att köra helgens första extra nummer. Vi satsade på att vara klara så man skulle hinna hem till "En idiot på resa", det sket sig och vi var hemma strax efter 22. Skönt ändå. Vi tog en kopp te och gick igenom turnéekonomin. Sedan släckte jag ned och punksekten från Lule kollade på Smurfarna.
Det har varit en supersoft helg och vi planerar redan på att smäda södern nån gång i början av nästa år. Tack till Dodeskaden, Wallrides (trots att de bangade Ösd), alla som kom på spelningarna, för den goda maten och för taket över våra huvuden. Tack!
Jag är rätt nöjd idag att vi avslutade i Öset. Är inte direkt avundsjuk på stackarna som sitter i silver combin med x antal mil framför sig precis just nu.

Måndag 5/12;
06:25 Frukost. 07:30 Avresa. 8:10 Tillbaka på kontorsstolen.
8:11 Kaffe.

Imorgon bär det av till Sundsvall...suck.

Thräshin' up Umeå, dag 2 (in swedish)

Per-Olof ville hellre stanna i Luleå och vara kaninvakt än att sätta sig i Thräshwagon igen och bränna ner till Umeå och veva. Vägen var bra mycket bättre så det tog inte lika lång tid som vi befarade. Va i Umeå vid 16, gjorde byn, åt en bit mat och unnade oss en käffe innan vi åkte ut till Charlies på Teg.

Fortfarande smått kaotiskt på golvet under vår spelning men det gick iaf bättre än igår. Lite knepigt ljud på Charlies bara samt att lyset hade gått sönder. Wallrides pallade inte riktigt med trycket och hoppade därför av helgturnén efter kvällens lir. Efter stängning tog vi oss en sväng på stan med våra västar.

Inatt kör vi en favorit i repris och sover på Skatefabriken i Vännäs. Jag räknar med youtube klipp på projektor hela natten lång. Just nu rullar Skateman vs Sportzman bara för sakens skull.

UPDATE: found a live clip of "Vacker Tass" from yesterdays gig in Luleå.

Thräshin' up Luleå, dag 1 (in swedish)

Vi kom iväg 9:10, endast 10min är beräknad avgång. Fint. Lillejohn klev ur tonårsdräkten, fyllde 20 och bjöd på tårta.

Vi stannade till i Strömsund för att kolla på Dunderklumen. P-O drog den bästa "Efter vi varit ute nu måste vi gå tillbaka till bilen". Hmmm, ja vart skulle vi annars gå? På lokala puben? Ut i skogen och leta svamp? Oj så vi skrattade.

Mindre roligt blev det när vi höll på att totalkrascha norr om Storuman. Ca 3mm ifrån döden, bra så. Vi fyllde tanken i Arvidsjaur (666kr) och kom fram till Luleå runt 20:30. Ösd-Luleå på 12 timmar i 60km/h. Tiden var mördande. Vi var dåliga med de andra banden, maten och sovstället var bra. Nu åker vi hemmåt, men först ska vi mellanlanda i Umeå. Ses på Charlies ikväll punksvin!

Jo, vi har fått en testmix av Fredrik på inspelningen vi gjorde för två helger sedan också. Låter gööööttmos. Häpp.

Kalender Für Alle, part 01 of 24

15 years ago this was the Swedish christmas calendar and I watched it every day at Ztv. I even have the original vhs videocassettes that I bought from Peter him self many years ago. The "Für Alle" concept have always been close to my heart therefor I would like to share this masterpiece with all of you. My plan was to upload a new episode each day in december last year until christmas, but it slipped out of my mind. But not this year, hell no. 'Nough said, enjoy yourself!

Det tredje världskriget A.K.A nätskeptiker del 2 (in swedish)

Axplock ur en djup och långdragen diskussion om framtiden mellan mig och en pensionär:

- Du menar att du ofta tänker på krig och förintelse?
- Händer väl. Tycker att det vore rätt skönt att jämna allt med marken en gång för alla.
- Hur tror du att det tredje världskriget kommer ta form? Teorier?
- Jag tror att det pågår redan, via våra datorer. "Dem" samlar just i denna sekund på fakta om fienden, samt sprider virus. Det är bara en tidsfråga innan helvetet bryter ut.
- Har jag aldrig tänkt på. Det behövs ju inte längre kärnvapen för att ödelägga ett helt land idag. I praktiken räcker det väl med ett knapptryck på en laptop.
- Du läser mina tankar...

Kort tystnad

- Varför får man alltid så ont i magen efter att man pratat med dig?
- Va vet jag? Du har väl ätit något olämpligt.
