Søstrene Zappa (PIF 27)


Søstrene Zappa er en duo av Geirr "Dr. Herb" Larsen (sang/sampling) og "Night Nurse" Solhaug (sang/sampling). Som det spilte de inn alt som finnes av Søstrene Zappa. 2) ble innspilt i 89 i Oslo, hvor bandet flyttet til i 88. På denne var Pål Lind (sang, ex Peder pong & de kåte, The Release Party med mer.) gjestevokalist. Lind har medvirket som gjeste musiker for dem ved flere anledninger på 90 tallet. Musikalsk er de mest inspirert av ska og reggae. Søstrene Zappa er et rent studio prosjekt som aldri har hatt konserter. Duoen har blitt ett kult fenomen pga av sin til tider sære humor og vanvittige evne til å klippe sammen lydsamplinger som ikke kan brukes i lag for deretter å få det til å høres helt naturlig ut.

I nedlastingen finner du deres "Radio demo" (låt 1-14) og en som heter "Mono demo" (låt 15-17). I tillegg får du begge låtene som er offisielt utgitt (se diskografien).

Diskografi:
1) div artister - Can A Butterfly Smash A Wheel ? (Bodø raa raak klubb BRRK 2) lp 87 inkl: Vi går en tur
2) div artister - Tiddelibom (Bodø rockeklubb BRKCD 9402) 3xCD i eske 94 inkl: Løyle

Sorry no English translation because if you don’t understand Norwegian you wouldn’t understand the humour inn the lyrics, and that is what makes Søstrene Zappa so much more than just another band/duo/artist.

Untitled (PIF 26)


Untitled came in several cover variations, all made by Runar Karlsen.

De pravity (et bein). After being in several experimental Bodø outfits like “ “ Part, Remi Langmo teamed up with Jon Hveding. They had a whole bunch off names on their projects/duos/bands. Most off them is to be found on the Bla bla vol. 1 compilation cassette. One off these projects was De Pravity (et bein). They did a concerts as a trio including Buster from “ “ Part, but on this contribution they was a duo.

After a while with several names they ended up as PLX-15 and were a pre-techno duo (later trio) that released several cassettes and was included on compilations. Got not much attention since they was before their time. They toured a lot but without much success, so they broke up.

Langmo has after PLX-15 broke up, been solo artist under several names, like Remi and Wiipoor Will. He has released cassettes under both those names. Before, at the same time and after DE Pravity (et bein) broke up, he was in bands like The Gate, X-omatic, Manna, Humdinger and H.C. Electronic Orchestra.

Hveding moved to Oslo at the end off PLX-15. There he has been in a lot off bands like Behind Bars, Wantoslam, Bøyen beng, Crossbreed, Drunk a.o. They was all into punk and HC and they has released several albums, except Wantoslam that has tracks on compilations too look back at. Especially Bøyen beng toured a lot, also in Europe. They even had a minor commercial hit with the track “Månebarn”. After moving back to Bodø late in the 90`s he startet postpunk outfit HumdinGer. Later he quit to be a fulltime member off the reggae band Manna, and still is.

Fâlx Çèrebri. For more information visit his MySpace, you find it here.

Famlende forsøk. The band was started early in the 80`s and have since released a lot off cassettes and two LPs. They have also several tracks on compilations. Started as a band heavily influenced by the Industrial Records wave of band from the 70`s, like Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle and others. They soon left the trademark off their origins and have since that, never looked back. FF plays a strange and experimental music somewhere between Faust and Einstürzende neubauten, with a heavy dose Nurse With Wound and has not ever sounded like any off these bands. They sound like FF, that’s it.

Before and at the same time as they was involved in FF they has played in several bands and solo projects. Most off them are on compilations or on their own releases on the bands label Shit Tapes that changed name to Chaos some years ago. Off all this side bands/projects I assume that The Smell Of Incense is the most well known.

Here are som links that might be off interest; #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9 #10 #11

Dan Mc Kinney. I could not find any info about McKinney on the internet. There is a piano player with the same name, but I don’t think it’s the same person.

Martin Howard Naylor. Could not find much info on Mr. Naylor on the internet. So here is a quote for you written by Dave Henderson in the mid 80`s; “After a brief flirtation with classical music Naylor built his own synth and started experimenting with sound. Setting up his own cassette/video label, Sorcerer Sound Productions (34, Bassingham Road, Wembley, Middx) he developed his own sound system and becoming a member of the London Musicians Collective he began to experiment with eastern instruments. A sample of his work can be heard on the Cause For Concern cassette compilation 'A Sudden Surge Of Power' (see CFC) and information and other tapes can be obtained direct from SSP.” From Dave Henderson’s “Wild Planet” series in Sounds, between 1983 and 1984.

Ny gate. Pop band that came out off the ruins from the punk band The Gate in Bodø early in the 80`s. On vocals they had Peter Pogo and the lyrics were a mix between punkish socialism and pure love songs. Ny gate was a good live band that got out a cassette and then a mini LP before they broke up. They was among the first bands from the punk/post punk area out of North of Norway to tour in Scandinavia. The band moved to Oslo at a late stage off their career, but it didn’t help them. They broke up late 80`s.

System liliput. For more info, look at the last blog entry before this one.

Termisk sammenbrudd. Before Ny gate had broke up Peter Pogo had a project called Termisk sammenbrudd. This was a synth outfit that he started as a duo with Kmysle. After their debut concert it has been a solo project. As that he has done a few concerts and made ballet music for a ballet that Amanda Steggell made.
Petter Pogo as Termisk sammenbrudd (Foto; Linn Stemland)
He had played in one off Bodøs first punk bands Hjertesvikt A/S before Termisk sammenbrudd. He quit after Hjertesvikt A/S had released their split cassette with The Gate. After Ny gate broke up he was involved in several Oslo bands like And The Balcony Fell, Bøyen beng, Pogomax, T-zers, Schweinhund a.o. Most known are his time in Jokke & Valentinerne, that later had line up changes and ended up like Jokke & Tourettes. Jokke is probably the most known composer off rock in Norway during the last 20 years. After his tragic death there has even been a road called up after him in Oslo. After this he has played in several bands like Valentourettes, SS Bondevik, Ronny Pøbel and in St. Thomas backingband, among many others. He has a silver medal in the Norwegian airguitar competition NM i luftgitar (!).

Vous. This was a solo project from Johnny Larssen. First he released two cassettes under his birth name, one off them was a split release with Martin Howard Naylor, before he ended up as Vous. As that he did a concert and then not doing music for several years.

Before he went solo he was living in Narvik, Norway. Here he was involved in several bands. Two off these has gone down in the history of Norwegian music as worth mention. First off all he was in the punk band Kriminel Ungdom. They changed their musically style to postpunk and had several line up changes before they ended up as Krim. U. As this they were on the cassette compilation “Null problem” and became a big underground band. At the same time he played in the progrock influenced band Slakt. They got out an album and then broke up. Since then they have had several reunion concerts.

He moved to Bodø early in the 80`s and went solo. After a break from music he came back as bass player in the postpunk influenced band Den tid…den sorg during the 90`s. Since then he has played in several bands in the more or less postpunk area from HumdinGer to Blaakraft among others.

System liliput - Harpa (PIF 25)


There isn`t much to say about System liliput, because the person behind this solo project clearly doesn`t want too much attention to him as a person. He wants his music to speak for itself. And it does. One off the best D.I.Y. tapes in the pop aera during the 80`s released in Norway.

It was mostly sold in Stavanger aera where Geir Vasseng is living. He plays every instrument as well as sing and has written all off the music on this mini album. As far as i know this is the only release, and it`s a shame. The world needs more pop like this.

"Harpa" came out on Vassengs label Geva Tapes & Studio in 1984. The cassette included six inlay cards. They are all scanned, as well as the cover, and included in the RAR (with the music) you can download at this blog. Soon after the release off "Harpa" the track "Gatelangs" was included on the compilation tape "Untitled" on Requiem.

No download anymore since this cassette is now available here. More info about the rerelease here.

various - REQ 013 (PIF 24)

Not released, only test pressing exists. Should have been released by Requiem Productions, but never did. This 7" EP from 1989 Includes;

A1 Njurmännen – Injured by Punishing Gods
A2 PLX-15 - Ode til en kjær venn
B1 Sadomaoistan – Terrorland
B2 GX Jupitter Larsen & The Haters – Forvandle


There exists only ten copies as test pressing off this record. Due to lack off money the record didn’t make it longer than to this white label test pressings in 1989. Originally was this EP to be included in the fanzine Requiem #44.

The Haters contribution was titled “Forvandle” (Norwegian for; change, transformation) on the master tape that Requiem got. On the official discography the contribution has changed name to “Bangoog”. What title is correct, I don’t know? I have used “Forvandle” on this vinyl ripp.

I guess that GX Jupitter Larsen & The Haters are so famous that readers off this blog is familiar to them. PLX-15 has been presented on this blog before. If you need to know more about the Haters and PLX-15 follow this links;

In August 1986 Skoglund quits and they continue as a trio. This line up make and preform a rock opera. First performence was in November 1986. Same month they recorded their first 7" "She's A Fucker". After 1987 i don`t know much. This is it; Doll quit after a while somewhere during the 90`s and the rest have recorded under the name Rotten Beak in a short period of time before they took back Njurmännen again. In 1997 they had a break, since then they have been back with two different line-ups. Any additional information on Njurmännen is more than welcome.

Sadomaoistan was a band from Tromsø, Norway and was startet in 1985. Originaly they was musically a mixture off geniale dilletanten movement from Germany and more dark industrial music like Laibach and Coil. The track on this compilation is from that time. The band moved to Oslo late 80`s where they was a cult band among the more fetish/S&M/Gay communitys.

In this period they released their first (and only) cassette "1. Mai 1985 > 1. Mai 1988“ (Requiem) in 1988. It was described as the Norwegian answer to Laibach because off its mix between fetish, music and lyrics. In the first period the band included among others; Ivar R. Friis (R.I.P.), Jørn Bårtdgard, Halvard Haldorsen and Bjørn Rune Haugsbø. Haugsbø had quit the band before they moved to Oslo so the cassette is done as a trio.

Later they ended up as a more or less solo project for Halvard Haldorsen and musically they was changed into more techno and rave oriented music, even described as industrial acid house. At this time Haldorsen had friends and musicians with him in studio as well as on stage when he needed them, so call it a band would be too stretch the meaning off the world too long.

Haugsbø is now active in the solo project Immigrant. Haugsbø has also played in Tromsø band Trafo. Haldorsen was also a DJ at the gothic club Kjettersk kjeller, and probably still is. Haldorsen, as Sadomaoistan, has done several performance/concerts together with Genitalia. Fetish in every way was exposed at anyone who took the chance. Even did some TV shows on a smaller TV channel. Haldorsen has since then worked a lot with TV both in front off the camera and more on the production side. Haldorsen later in the duo The Machines.

Hopefully a complete discography;

PLX-15 - Kort prosess (PIF 21)


(Foto; Morten Andersen)

PLX-15 - Kort prosess lastes opp her på grunn av mas fra fansen :)(Loaded up here because off requests.

Duoen oppsto tidlig i 85 da De Pravity (et bein) skiftet navn til PLX-15. De besto da av Jon Hveding (gitar/tangenter/perkusjon/
cello/sang/rytmeboks programmering/bass) og Remi Langmo (sang/tangenter/perkusjon/rytmeboks programmering). Disse laget et repertoar bestående av til tider punkete synthpop, som i ettertid er blitt betegnet som pre tekno. Sommeren 85 spilte de inn en tre låters demo hvor bidraget på 3) er hentet fra. Etter dette får de med Lars Nicolaysen (gitar/trommer/tangenter/sang/rytmeboks programmering). Som en trio konsert debuterer de på Gimle 13/12-85 under en støtte konsert for Afrika.

Kort tid etter på nyåret 86 spiller de inn From Ritual To Romance med Petter Pogo som produsent. Pogo spiller i tillegg gitar på enkelte låter på denne utgivelsen. Fra denne er bidraget på samleplaten 5) hentet fra. Etter en konsert på Gimle 3/3-86 slutter Nicolaysen. PLX 15 debuterer som duo på Studenthuset i Tromsø 19/4-86, hvor de spilte oppvarming for Wow, en besvimte og Sadomaoistan. Denne konserten blir etterfulgt av en rekke konserter, blant annet Troilltampen 11 og 12/7-86, før de tar en pause høsten 86.

I Februar 87 starter de opp igjen som duo av Hveding og Langmo og spiller inn Kort prosess. Herifra er bidraget til 7) hentet fra. Deretter tar de seg en pause igjen før de har reunionkonsert som oppvarming for Glass 26/12-87, som trio inkl. Nicolaysen. Våren 88 hadde Hveding flyttet til Oslo hvor han og Hans "Mini" Svendsen (gitar/tangenter/sang) tar navnet PLX-15 våren 88. Kort tid etter var Langmo inkl. i denne trio utgaven av bandet. Disse rakk å spille to konserter i Oslo. Derav en på en støtte konsert på Blitz 29/5-88 for Anti viviseksjonen i lag med Race Against Time og So Much Hate, mens den andre var i lag med Sadomaoistan på No Dogs bar på Vålerenga. Etter denne konserten flytter Langmo tilbake til Bodø hvor han blir med i X-omatic som var Nicolaysen sitt nye band.

Hveding og Svendsen fortsetter som PLX-15 i en kort periode før bandet tar en ny pause sommeren 88. Nå skulle det bli en pause fram til romjula 94 hvor PLX-15 som duoen Hveding og Langmo gjorde to låter som en demo. Har etter dette kun hatt sporadiske øvinger, fram til duoen hadde konserten på Nordland Musikk Fest Uke sin årlige Ballroom konsert på Sinus 8/8-98. Etter dette kun vært samlet en gang i september 2003 hvor de spilte tre låter som trioen Hveding, Langmo og Nicolaysen under PLX-15 navnet på deres manager Tore Stemlands 40 års dag. I det siste er kravet om nok en gjenforeningskonsert økt i takt med mytene om duoen/trioen PLX-15.
(fra deres siste opptreden noensinne....i allefall hittil. Foto; Linn Stemland)

Hveding og Langmo hadde spilt under flere forskjellige navn før PLX-15, og siden har de spilt i lag i første oppsettene av både Manna og Humdinger. I sistnevnte ble også Nicolaysen med etter hvert. Hveding har hatt en lengre karriere i Oslo band som Bøyen beng, Behind Bars, Wantoslam, Harry Krishna og karmakammeratene med mer. Nicolaysen er kjent for solo prosjekter som Skjit-Lars og Nervøse lidelser foruten å ha spilt i Terror for Jesus, Bleah og nå er i både Humdinger og Blaakraft for å ha nevnt noe.

STOPP PRESS: PLX-15 er bekreftet for reunionkonsert på Bodø HardCore Festival i tidsrommet 20-25 nov 2007. Kommer tilbake til nærmere dato og sted når det foreligger.

NY INFO, lagt inn 18. november 2007; PLX-15 spiller onsdag 21. november på Gimle i Bodø som headliner på dag to under Bodø HardCore Festival.

The duo PLX-15 became a reality in 1985 when De Pravity (et bein) changed they’re name to PLX-15. They was then Jon Hveding (guitar/keyboard/percusion/cello/vocals/rythmbox/bass) and Remi Langmo (keyboard/percusion/ vocals/rythmbox/bass). They made a bunch off tunes that was a plce between punk and synthpop, later described as pre techno. In the summer of 85 they made a three track demo where they’re contribution to 3) is from. Soon after they was a trio including Lars Nicolaysen (guitar/drums/keyboard/vocals/rythmbox). As this trio they had their first concert at Gimle 13/12-85 under a benefit concert for Africa.

Soon after in the winter of 86 they recorded “From Ritual To Romance” with Petter Pogo as producer, and he plays guitar as well on some tracks. From this MC both tracks on 5) are fetched. After a concert at Gimle 3/3-86 Nicolaysen quit the band. PLX 15 has they`re first gig as a duo on Studenthuset in Tromsø 19/4-86, where they played support for “Wow, en besvimte” and “Sadomaoistan”. Several concerts followed, including playing on the Troilltampen festival 11 og 12/7-86, before they took they’re first break, autumn 86.

In February 87 they started up again as a duo of Hveding and Langmo and they record the album “Kort prosess”. The contribution to 7) is from this album. This was followed by another break. Late autumn 87 they was back as a trio including Nicolaysen and played a support concert for “Glass” at Sinus 26/12-87. In the spring 1988 did Hveding move to Oslo where he was joined by Hans "Mini" Svendsen (guitar/keyboard/vocals) under the name PLX-15. Shortly after this happened, Langmo followed to Oslo. This trio played two concerts in Oslo. First at Blitz 29/5-88 on a Anti viviseksjon benefit gig together with “Race Against Time” and “So Much Hate”. The other concert was as support for “Sadomaoistan” on “No Dogs bar”. After this Langmo quit and moves back to Bodø where he joined Nicolaysen in his new band X-omatic.

Hveding and Svendsen continues as PLX-15 a short period before the band takes a new break in the summer 1988. At christmas 1994 they was back as a duo off Hveding and Langmo and recorded a studio demo, before they took a new break that lasted to they played at the “Nordland Musikk Fest Uke” concert “Ballroom” at Sinus 8/8-98. After this they has only got togheter one more time, and this time as a trio off Hveding, Langmo & Nicolaysen in September 2003 at their manager Tore Stemlands 40 years birthday party. Rumours tell that they maybe will play again this year but nothing is confirmed yet.

Hveding and Langmo had before PLX-15 plaed togheter under several band names. After the first break up off PLX-15 they have played togheter in the first line-ups of bands like Manna and Humdinger. In Humdinger they was in the second line-up joined by Nicolaysen as well. Hveding had a long history in a lot off Oslo bands like “Bøyen beng”, “Behind Bars”, “Wantoslam”, “Harry krishna og karmakammeratene” among others. Nicolaysen is well known for solo projects like ”Skjit-Lars” and ”Nervøse lidelser” and played in bands like ”Terror for Jesus”, ”Bleah” and is now playing in both ”Humdinger” and “Blaakraft” to mention a few.

TERROR FOR JESUS (PIF 20)


TFJ kom som et blindskudd i mørket vinteren 1990 og forlot moder jord sommeren 1991. En kort hektisk karriere med en håndfull konserter, mye latter, god drikke og en legendarisk 7" innspilling som skulle komme ut 11 år etter bandet ble oppløst. Vil du vite mer så les her. Pønk eller HC, who fucking care, dette er rett fra levra høyoktan PØNK uansett innsnevring. Liker du høy musikk som er brutal og vakker på samme tid er dette bandet for deg.

"Introducing YO! CORE" kom ut på Requiem Productions i 10 (ja du leste riktig ti) eksemplarer på ekstra tykk vinyl i 2002. Den kom da i en plastpose med et hefte med historien om bandet og de som hadde vært innvolvert i det, samt en badge som bare finnes i 10 eksemplarer. Utgivelsen var selvsagt utsolgt før den kom fra presseriet og er i dag en av de sjeldneste norske platene som finnes.

TFJ - Diskografi + cover

Terror For Jesus was a local punk act from Bodø that lastet little over a year between 1990 and 1991. In that short period of time they did a few concerts and a 7" EP recording. So why bother to give time to such a small part of the punk history? Well the 7" EP could probably had been one of the best Norwegian punk releases in the 90`s (hasn`t it been for it was not released before 2002). The band didn`t care for doing the right thing. They did what they wanted from Toy Dolls fun lyrics to lyrics Bad Brains or Dead Kennedys could have made to cover version of the most sold reggae 7" in Norway; "Svake menneske" (Weak people. About people who drink, smoke etc and how dumb they are. Norways first straight edge release, probably).

TFJ was into the game of punk to do what they wanted to do, when they wanted to do it. They got a lot of fans localy, but also some critics. Their band name means the same in Norwegian and English and was off course talk off the town for some religious fanatics.

Any how the band splitt when the fun became more serious than they wanted it to be, just after they had finished their debut EP (where they recorded several other tracks also, later released on a compilaton. For more info look at the discography). It should take 11 years before Requiem Production released it as a 7" EP in ten copys. Extra thick vinyl and a big booklet with everything you possible could want to know about the band + a badge made in ten copys as well. All in a plastic bag. Needles to say this is one off the rarest Norwegian punk releases ever.

SLUK (PIF 18)


I rekken av obskure og alt for lite berømte prosjekter/band kommer Sluk. Dette er et solo prosjekt for kunstneren Runar Karlsen. Etter å ha malt i mange år begynte han på 80 tallet også å utforske metal klanger i kjølvannet etter Einstürzende Neubauten, Stockhausen og Cage. En demo og stillhet. Før han kom tilbake jobbet han i lag med Olav Hagen (aka A Place to Pray) i noen år uten at det kom så mye ut av det prosjektet. Noen remixversjoner som Sluk var involvert i er å finne her og her.

Tilbake til Sluk og det nye årtusenet tar han inn elektronikk i lydbildet. Det har ført til en rekke nye komposisjoner som tidvis kan minne om et soundtrack til en Lynch film ala Eraserhead, mens det andre stunder lysner litt opp av tungsinnet og viser musikalske føringer mot Swans og Munch uten at man direkte overgår seg selv av lykke. Mens han andre ganger kommer med låter i krysningspunktet mellom noe Merzbow og Steven Stapelton kunne ha gjort hvis de noensinne hadde møttes i et studio.

Sluk er i tillegg med i grupperingen ”The Plastic Punk Project” som du finner musikk fra på Sluk sin Urørt konto.

In the series off obscure and not at all known projects/bands Paranoia is Freedom proudly presents Sluk. This is a solo project for the painter Runar Karlsen. After many years painting he also explored the world off music, inspired by Einstürzende Neubauten, Stockhausen and Cage. He made a demo and then it was quiet for over 20 years as Sluk. In the meantime he worked with Olav Hagen (aka A Place To Prey) for some years. From that period some remix versions has been put out on the big web, you find them here and here.

Back to Sluk and the new millennium. As Sluk he has now began to use electronics in his music. With that there is new dimensions in the music from Sluk. Sometimes it remains me of an alternative soundtrack to the Lynch movie “Eraserhead”. Other tracks could have been something Merzbow & Steven Stapelton had done in studio if those two ever got together in a studio.

Sluk is also involved in a group called “The Plastic Punk Project”. Music from them as well as Sluk is found here.

Give Me Your Horse (PIF 17)


GMYH sto på plakaten til Bodø HardCore festival #3.

GMYH var et relativt kortlivet hc band fra Bodø som eksisterte fra en gang i 2001 til engang i 2003. I løpet av disse ca to årene gjorde bandet flere konserter, og mot slutten av bandets eksistens en demo.

De startet opp med å inkludere; Peter Andersen (gitar) Espen Erikstad (gitar) Jon Severin Eivik Jakobsen (vokal) Gaute Johansen (trommer) og Sebastian (bass). Både Andersen og Johansen fortsatte mens resten forsvant ut av denne historien etter en stund, for å bli erstattet av; Mads Bye (gitar) Endre Njøs (bass) og Alexander Støver (vokal).

De fikk gjort en seks spors demo helt på tampen av sin eksistens. Det vil si den endte opp med fem ferdige låter, da låt nr to aldri ble fullført i følge Andersen. Line upen på demoen er forøvrig den andre og siste.

Andersen sier dessuten bl.a. dette om demoen; ”Demoen ble tatt opp på brødrene Bowitz sin hd-opptaker på Rockebadet (all takk til dem), og siden ingen av oss kunne skru noe særlig lyd, så ble den nå deretter. :)” og dette om bandet; ”GMYH var aktive i perioden 2001-2003 sånn ca. Spilte blant annet på OD-rockene i 2001 og 2002, samt Zoom i 2002. Etter det flyttet folk til alle kanter av landet. Det er vel uansett skjebnen til utallige band opp igjennom åra.”

Av de involverte har Støver gjort seg bemerket med soloprosjektet Binärpilot, mens Njøs har vært med i både Nagasaki og The Spectacle og spiller nå i Käthe Kollwitz.

GMYH was a short lived HC band from Bodø that was active sometime between 2001 and 2003. During these two years they did several concerts and on the end they did a demo.

First line up included; Peter Andersen (guitar) Espen Erikstad (guitar) Jon Severin Eivik Jakobsen (vocal) Gaute Johansen (drums) and Sebastian (bass). After a while some people quit the band, the second line up ended like this; Andersen and Johansen both become drummers and the rest was replaced by; Mads Bye (guitar) Endre Njøs (bass) and Alexander Støver (vocal).

This second line up recorded the six track demo. Well it ended up finally only with five tracks since one track never was finished, according to Andersen. Line up on the demo is the second.

Andersen says this about the demo; “The demo was recorded at the borthers Bowitz HD-recorder on Rckebadet (thanx to them), and since no one off us could use the equipment the sound became like it is. :)” and this about the band “GMYH was active 2001-2003. We played at OD-rock in 2001 and 2002, and at Zoom in 2002. After that the people began to move away from Bodø to other parts off the country. I guess it is the faith off so many bands through the history.”

Off those who played in GMYH have Støver made his way to cult fame with his solo electronica project Binärpilot, while Njøs has played in bands like Nagasaki, The Spectacle and now playing in Käthe Kollwitz.

Humdinger (PIF 15)


Humdinger ble startet på slutten av 90 tallet og hadde sin debut konsert på Mira kro i Skjerstad våren 99. De besto da av; Jon Hveding (gitar/vokal) Tommen Hveding (gitar/kor) Remi Langmo (tangenter) og Nigel Mowles (bass). Rytmeboksen fra første konsert ble rett etterpå byttet ut med den høyst levende Lars Nicolaysen (aka Skjit-Lars) som trakterte slagverket. Med hans inntog var han gjenforent med ex PLX-15erne J. Hveding og Langmo, i tillegg til T. Hveding og Mowles som ikke hadde særlig lang band erfaring. Jon Hveding vil nok mange huske fra band som Bøyen beng og Behind Bars og nå i Manna. Nicolaysen er urpønker med Norges første pønk låt utgitt på vinyl i USA (bidraget på Welcome to 1984) og nok mest kjent for det, spiller også i lydlauget Psykisk tortur samt flere solo prosjekter.

Etter noen få konserter slutter Mowles (og returnerer til England hvor han nå spiller i Miss Misery.) for å bli erstattet av Jens Hasselberg. Med det kom en av de mest rutinerte bassistene i Bodøs musikkliv inn i bandet. Hasselberg har tidligere spilt i band som Black Morning (Bodø bandet ikke det Australske) og FWJB, samt en rekke jobber som backingmusiker både live og studio. Denne utgaven av Humdinger fikk gitt ut bandets debutalbum i 2000 som kledelig nok het ”Humdinger” (visstnok et amerikansk ord for noe eller noen av høy kvalitet.). Samme året hadde de låten (hentet fra debut albumet) ”Musroom Men” på 7” ep samleren Fuckin' North Pole Punk Rock Collection vol.1. Etter dette skulle det gå noen år før det kom nye utgivelser.

I mellomtiden forsvant Hasselberg, J. Hveding og Langmo ut av bandet. Etter flere personellskifter fikk T. Hveding og Nicolaysen med seg Steven Balmbra (vokal) og Johnny Larssen (bass). Sistnevnte opprinnelig fra Narvik hvor han bl.a. spilte i Krim.U. og Slakt. Fra 80 tallet bosatt i Bodø hvor han bl.a. har hatt et solo prosjekt. Denne kvartetten har holdt sammen siden mai 2004. De konsertdebuterte på Bodø HardCore Festival i november 2005. Denne konserten ble filmet og utgitt som DVD tre dager senere i november 05. Noen konserter senere så er vi i april 2007 og bandet har akkurat vært i studio igjen for å spille inn en demo. Så får framtiden vise hva som skjer med den.

Diskografi;

1) Humdinger (Humdinger) CD-R 2000

2) div artister - Fuckin`North Pole Punk Rock Collection Vol. 1" (Requiem Productions/Underground, 2000) med låten "Mushroom Men" fra "Humdinger". Platen kom ut i 300 nummererte eksemplarer fordelt på 3 vinylfarger av 100 eksemplarer hver. Fargene var rød, grønn og blå. Utgitt i samarbeid med Underground records. Hver av selskapene hadde sitt cover så det eksisterer ca 50 ex på hver vinylfarge med respektive selskap sitt cover. Covret som er brukt her er Requiem sin utgave.

NY INFO, lagt inn 18. november 2007; HumdinGer spiller torsdag 22. november på Sinus i Bodø på dag tre under Bodø HardCore Festival. Samtidig slipper de sitt nye album "What you hear is what you get".

Humdinger was started at the end of the 1990`s and had it`s first concert at Mira kro in Skjerstad in the spring of 99. The band was; Jon Hveding (guitar/vocal) Tommen Hveding (guitar/background vocal) Remi Langmo (synth) and Nigel Mowles (bass). The rythmbox used at the first gig was soon after replaced with the living legend Lars Nicolaysen (aka Skjit-Lars) on drums. With Nicolaysen in the band he was reunited with ex PLX-15 mates J. Hveding and Langmo. The other two; T. Hveding and Mowles, didn`t have much band experience before Humdinger. Jon Hveding is famous for his part in bands like Bøyen beng and Behind Bars and now in Manna. Nicolaysen had the first Norwegian punk track released on wax in the States with his contribution on Welcome to 1984), he is also involved in bands like industrial metal percussion orientated Psykisk tortur and sevral solo projects.

After a few concerts Mowles quit and returns to England and joins Miss Misery. He was replaced by Jens Hasselberg. Hasselberg is one off the oldtimers in Bodø scene. He had played in bands like Black Morning (Bodø band, not the Australian band) and FWJB, and a lot off session work both in studio and on the road for other artists. This line up of Humdinger released their self titled debut album in 2000. The same year they had a track from the album on a 7" punk compilation for bands in North of Norway called "Fuckin' North Pole Punk Rock Collection vol.1". After this it would be years before the next release.

(Current line up animated by Tiny)
In the meantime Hasselberg, J. Hveding and Langmo quit. Several person came and quited before a new englishman ended up in Humdingers line up. Steven Balmbra (vocal) didn`t have much band experience but enough to take over the fontman jobb. Johnny Larssen (bass) has his origins from Narvik where he played in bands like Krim.U. and Slakt. From the 80`s living in Bodø where he had a solo project under his own name (splitt MC with Martin Howard Naylor) and as Vous. This line up has been togheter as Humdinger since May 2004. They had their concert debut at the Bodø HardCore Festival in November 2005. The concert was filmed and released as a DVD only three days later in November 2005. Some concerts later we are in April 2007 and the band has been in a studio again to record a demo, so now we can only wait and hope.
