A super big congratulation to brother Chris and his newborn baby girl Nathalie not to mention mother Shara who pulled the bravery of labor off! Nathalie is a such a charming young lady you just melt. Her parents are quite proud and should be! Welcome to the freak family, Nathalie.
Paris. My Viking butt finds itself on a harsh railway station seat. Soon about to jump on a train to Tours to do a little bit of playing there tomorrow with buddy Christophe Godin. Last night the Eklundh family arrived from an utter kick ass vacation in Greece, far away from all the teargas jazz in Athens. We spent time sailing the Ionian Sea, swimming in caves and driving around. A tiptop time indeed and a potent battery charger for an intense upcoming second half of 2011. (more…)
A somewhat hysterical woman is screaming as I get off the transfer bus. “Bangkok? Passengers for Dubai? Dubaaaaiii? Baaangkok?” I ask what the screaming is about. Yes, I am going to Dubai. Show me your boarding pass, she yells. I don’t have one. Need to find the transfer desk. She is almost on the verge of a nervous breakdown and I still haven’t got a clue of why the hell she is shouting like a maniac. Well, I ignore her and mind my own business. Usually works best.
First of all a big hip hip hooray to Björn and Sofia and their now extended family! The 3rd of September Sofia gave birth to Sindre’s brother Josef! (Freak Kitchen V. 2.0 is not far away now…) Congratulations, family Fryklund!
On the road again. We are about an hour away from Paris after a funny gig at the Hessenhalle in Giessen, Germany yesterday. We were a bit worried the local promoter had booked a slightly too massive venue since we always had a somewhat tricky time getting ourselves heard in Germany compared to the surrounding countries. We were wrong. It turned out to be a groovy evening. Myself, Björn and Chris are most grateful for everyone coming out to see the show! Spread the word so we can come back soon again. Lots of gratitude to Kig, the organisation taking care of business. (Man, those home-made feta cheese burgers backstage made a vegetarian blissful and then some). (more…)
