The Scrum Diaries!

Finally time for a update!! (If anyone still is checking this blog that is...)


I've had a few months off. Went off into the woods true hippiestyle and kept out of everyones way...recorded some music and worked my last weeks at my old job.
Most of the time I hung out with this awesome lady (Inka):


And the rest of the time I hung out with this madame terror:


I took care of horses, cows, cats and myself...not much else to report there.


Moved for real to Gothenburg, started my new job as a bookbinder and here I am.
It feels good to be settling down some and I hope I can keep the gypsy in me tied down.

I've been doing quite a bit of playing live the last couple of weeks...did a double-set evening at the lovely Café Publik as Tsukimono a few weeks back:


Then I played the Malmö-festival opening for FM3 (great to see them again and to get me a third buddha machine).
Here's my gear all set up and ready to blast out the jams:


And then just the other night I had the fantastic honor to play at Release The Bats-headquarters:


There was a recording made and it just might find it's way onto here as a free download...we'll see!

I also had the honour to play drums with mr Viktor Sjöberg at Café Publik...there's a short video of that occasion here

There's a new Tsukimono-Ep entitled "Van Venue Hotel" coming asap over at It's a Trap recorded in the van and at the venues and in the hotels (ain't I just awesome when it comes to coming up with clever titles eh?) during the Japan-tour we did with Scraps Of Tape in June.

Also another self-released cd-r entitled "Smilence" is in the making, it'll be really nice when it's done. The "Red Red Wine" wineglass/cd-r will also soon be out on structures sonores...more on that when due.

We are also about to release our first release with The Colour Black, my collab with G from Repoman/DBHG/ex-8 Days Of Nothing/Ex-Skull Defekts. This will be a really really geeky and nice release...also more on that later!

Tomorrow a new band will see the light of day as I'm hooking up with (amongst others) Mattan from the amazing SMACKDOWN to kick out some nice punkrock!! really looking forward to it!!!

The new Scraps Of Tape album is in the making (writing songs) and it will be produced by Mathias Oldén of Logh-fame just as "TIACITAC" was...it'll be great to work with Kapten again.

Also some sad news: Recently I lost 80% of all the work I've done the last 2 years...3 new albums with tsuki and all the artwork for our latest scraps of tape cd "This Is A Copy Is This A Copy" amongst ALOT more stuff...there's still a slim chance I might be getting it back but right now it seems a little fucked.


There will definitly be more updates coming this fall so keep your eyes open!!

Much love to everyone!

Sugigt att höra om din (förmodade) hårddiskförlust! Mkt bittert.

Annars låter det prima med lantlig sommaridyll och kul att höra att Tsuki lever och verkar!

Ser mkt fram emot nytt material i lagom tajming till att hösten obönhörligt rullar in.
