Grus i Dojjan
This folk rocking outfit is celebrating its 36th anniversary 2006. The
grey panthers of rock, swing & punk are still touring and having a
ball. They are most known for the hit ”Kaffe utan grädde är
som kärlek utan kyssar”. They have released plenty of albums
along the way. The band is based in Skåne in the south of Sweden,
and their energetic showman, singer and mouth harp player Krutte Hedberg
is still crazy after all those years.
Hounds of Heaven
Shortlived country rock project, based in Laholm around 1975. Inspired
by Poco, Flying Burrito Brothers and of course, the late great Gram Parsons,
the mix of country and rock the band played didn’t have an audience
in Sweden at the time. Released the album Saturday Nite Special 1975.
Formed in Stockholm in 1996. The quartet shares the love of cajun, zydeco,
swamp rock and jambalaya & hot crawfish Louisiana style. They have
played in New Orleans and are currently very active in Sweden and on the
Stockholm club circuit. A Louisiana Saturday night party band from the
arctic bayou of Stockholm. www.cajunhurricane.se
