Malmöfestivalen, Malmö, Sweden Aug. 21, 2006 (Øresund Space Collective, Rev. Vince Anderson, Dungen)

From Aural Innovations #34 (August 2006)

We left Copenhagen about 17 to head over to Malmö. It was easy to find and we arrived in perfect time. Ola was sitting their waiting for us. The others were coming by train. I ate some food and then headed over to see Dungen. There were quite a lot of people and our friends from the Carpet Knights, and Martin and Tom from Denmark were there as well. Dungen played a pretty cool set with two long jamming pieces and the rest pretty straight up. They are a pretty unique band and have a great guitar player. They played for about 65 minutes. We just hung out and talked with our friends while we waited and listened to Reverend Vince Anderson from Brooklyn, NY. He plays pretty cool gospel blues and tells stories. He was very entertaining.

Anyway, 21:20, we, the Øresund Space Collective, hit the stage and were setting up the gear. It all went pretty smooth and we were sitting around talking. We only had a monitor and line check with Beatte, no real sound check. Anyway, I went and changed into my alien mask and orange jumpsuit and we hit the stage at 22 sharp, with some space sounds and then straight into a sort of folky riff in G by Sebastian. The first jam we were sort of finding our feet so to speak and trying to get the monitor sound right. I could hear everything except Magnus. It was not loud on the stage at all, which was really nice. I dedicated the first one to some young kid who was hanging out at the front when we soundchecked and wanted a song dedicated to him, and then he was not even there. Ha... out sniffing glue. Anyway, the 60 minutes went by really fast but it was a cool laid back set. I never felt like we reached any peak intensity but just played well. Very spacey synths. Ola had a new Kaospad2 and played the Fender Rhodes a little bit. This was the first time he had had that at a jam session in a long time. He could not hear it in the monitor though and never really got it high enough. The last jam was the best and we really had a cool groove going that we had to cut short... damn.. Anyway, a great 60 minute set. Everyone we talked to really liked it as well. It seems to be a success! A fun a cool night in Malmö.
