FJORTON TIMMAR BACK TO SKÅNELAND
“Idag har dock ett nytt klipp gjort entre - Anders Flanderz! Han uppträdde på torget i Kristianstad igår och Signe fick gå fram och lägga pengar i hans hatt. Sen dess har hon haft dille på Anders Flanderz. Youtubeklippet ovan har hon kollat på kanske 35 gånger idag. Och så kommer det såklart tusen frågor om Anders Flanderz ovan på det. Varför har Anders Flanderz glasögon? Varför har Anders Flanderz ingen hjälm? Varför ropar Anders Flanderz? Varför går Anders Flanderz omkring i affären? OSV.”
“Today, however, a new clip has made contractors - Anders Flanderz! He appeared on the square in Kristianstad yesterday and Signe had to go back and put money in his hat. Since then she has had craze of Anders Flanderz. Youtube clip above, she has watched maybe 35 times today. And it will of course a thousand questions about Anders Flanderz above it. Why did Anders Flanderz glasses? Why did Anders Flanderz no helmet? Why cry Anders Flanderz? Why Anders Flanderz around the store? ETC.”
LIVE DVD SUM UP & MY OWN STUFF COMING UP!
I wanted to make a little Live DVD to sum up one year of being a cover band out on the streets! Could be nice to have a little something for the people to bring home after watching me play on the streets and people have asked for recordings, so I thought a little live DVD would be just perfect, also what you see in my videos today is my first version of the set-up, I have tons of new ideas on instruments and mechanics so I wanted to sum up that first version too.
Not long after this idea came up, an Oskar came up to me in the streets and asked if he could film me some day so we hit our bags together as we say in Sweden and together with Oskar’s friend Dennis we did some 2 camera live footage one sunny saturday, the 5th of may. They are young, hungry and very talented film people so I am just very thankful and happy! Oskar wanted to do the star wars song as a little extra for himself and that’s the thing in the video below, the actual DVD with a bunch of songs and people’s reactions and comments will be out in a while. More about that later!
Some years before I buildt this lonely orchestra we had a band for 5 years called Detektivbyrån in which I wrote around 50% of the song material (check out some songs I wrote the whole or half of here: KÄRLEKENS ALLA FÄRJOR , EN ANNAN TYP AV DISCO , GENERATION CELEBRATION , OM DU MÖTER VARG , E18 , LYCKANS UNDULAT and there is more out there).
Before the band died I had about 20-30 songs/song ideas which was meant to end up on a new album but there never was one so I kept the songs and now I feel I really wanna do something with that material and also I’ve been writing a bunch of other songs too during the years, everything from instrumental to singing to screaming! An old friend of mine, Lasse, called me the other day and told me he would like to record my orchestra, he studies sound technology and right now they are working with old school recording, like only 8 channels available and such things so we’re gonna do one of my own new songs in a very fast and small recording session, it’ll happen soon and I’m really looking forward to it! We have 6 hours and I have a crazy arrangement in my head on a song that started out as a new Detektivbyrån song but became a singing song, so we’ll see what happens! I haven’t felt for recording my own stuff for several years but suddenly I feel it’s gonna be pure fun - New times!
Stay cool, be warm!!
