is the Norwegian ex-jazz, now Nu-Balearic duo consisting of Pal «Strangefruit» Nyhus and Knut Sævik, who source nominal dance music from a smogasbord of slow motion beats, cosmic chants and pilfered bits of disco, prog and soft rock.
You can`t go wrong with those vocals.
Mashed-up with the Wagner theme from «Apocalypse Now».
To cheer me up.
The perfect cruising song.
Perfect jogging tempo.
Nokia's Alarmer tune. It’s a bit a lame answer , but it’s actually quite nice and subtle.
At Roskilde. In the early 90s. Not exactly the best concert I eever saw, but more correctly the scariest. It was very dangerous and totally slamming.
When drunk: «Go Bang»; when pissed: «Radio Morrocco»; when passing out: «Daddy Lolo».
And that awful «fuck you» song by Rage Against The Machine.
Still have not found those...
I don't think I fell in love with someone specific to it, but I can recall it being the soundtrack to a particular time when my male hormones really started to grow out of control. I remember it being a perfect soundtrack for those times.
Torgersen is a famous doctor and comedian over here. «Det Var En Gang» is a children's song that used to crack me up when I was about four or five. I remember laughing while laying on my head on my parent's couch listening to this on a 7". It's got lyrics that deal with sounds mixed with words and that was what I found funny, and in a way my first sonically psychedelic experience.
Then I’d prefer that my favorite DJ – whoever that will be then – would play a proper set of my favourite tunes to a crowd of my best friends dancing and continuing on...
Ganim's Asia Minors is an obscure, possibly persian/turkish group from the early sixties. «Daddy Lolo» is indeed a bonkers but utterly charming tune. It's from one of those «Jungle Exotica» compilations that came out in the nineties. This song should conclude my funeral too.
For the wallet: «Yesterday»; for sheer excellence: «Nature Boy».
