This is a site where I post reviews of CDs, DVDs, LPs, and concerts. I have been writing music reviews on and off since 1984. I ran a heavy metal fanzine from 1984-1988 called Metal Madness and have been a staff writer for Aural Innovations for many years. I have also contributed to Chrohinga Well (RIP), Bad Acid (RIP), Lowcut (RIP), Roadburn and a number of other zines as well. I recently moved to Portugal so please request the new address and do not send any music to Denmark anymore. Tak..

Boar, Deep Space Destructors, Øresund Space Collective- KB18, Copenhagen April 9th, 2016
This was a great night of space and stoner rock. Sadly
hardly any people showed up. Most of the guys from Måneskjold were there, Lone,
Thomas and Jesper (Gas Giant) and a few Finnish people to see the great bands
ØSC started the show off and we played about 75mins and a
really cool set. Nicklas from Papir was really amazing on this night. So
inspired. Jiri and Martin totally kicked asss on the rhythm section. The newest
guitar player to join us on a regular basis, Jacob K,also played some great stuff. Mogens had
trouble hearing but I thought he was great and the sound on stage was great for
everyone except for Mogens (who never complained until after). Cool set. You can hear it at the link below.
Deep Space Destructors was next and I joined them for the
entire show. I really love this band. I have reviewed their two full length CDs
and released and reviewed their last release that I put out on my Space Rock
Productions label. Nice people as well. The band stayed at my place the night
before and we hung out listening to records all night and got to know each
other. They had sent me their demo for their new album, which they played
nearly all of so I had heard the songs we played. It was so much fun to play
with them. Great new songs with cool dynamics. I felt like I added something
for sure. We closed the set with an uptempo version of Hurry on Sundown by
Hawkwind.. Their Finnish friends said it was one of the best shows they ever
played and I should be a full time member! Ha…
Set List: Return to the Black Star, Spacemind, From the Ashes. Journey to the
Space Mountain, Hurry on Sundown (Hawkwind).
Boar is a four piece psychedelic stoner rock band from Oulu.
They released a record last year called Veneficae on the Lost Pilgrim Record
label. I will review it soon for you. Anyway, the had a really high energy and
intense stoner rock sound and were totally awesome when they were jamming out
with killer bass lines and great leads from both guitar players.There was only about 15 people up front and
into it which was a pity as I thought the band was great. I
Set List: Poseidon, Sahara, Kraut, Trees, Featherless, Sand
A great night.. So many amazing shows at KB18 pity the place
is not nicer.
