Great music..!

I went to see Brian Ritchie (the bassplayer from Violent Femmes) play (on some japanese flutes and rocks) at Grand Rokk last night. There he performed with bassist Skúli Sverrisson, saxist Óskar Guðjónsson and drummer Matthías M.D. Hemstock. Brian started by himself, and after two songs (or so) the rest of the band joined. The music was dreamlike, mantras and ethnic (or something..!). Then they performed two songs from the Skúli and Óskar cd "eftir þögn" ("After Silence"). Man beautiful stuff. And Skúli was great as always. And of course the rest of the band was great to..! But I don't think they rehearsed "too much" for this concert though.

A great concert to cut a long story short. The encore was a John Coltrane number, Living Space.

Now I want to see a full concert with Skúli and Óskar playing the suff from "eftir þögn".

This post was in english for my friends in Århus! ;)
