Les Pickadoles Update

Les Pickadoles performed a blistering set at the Katrineholm Jazz & Blues Festival. Arriving from different parts of the country we gathered at Djulö Herrgård in the afternoon to get our tunes together. The site was crowded and the weather was really good. Some clouds, nice temperature around 20 C and no rain. We had a list of about 10 tunes that we rehearsed on the spot. As usual we had a rough idea of what we were going to do, but as always there’s plenty of room for spontaneous impromptu stuff. We had the last spot in the festival program so we took the opportunity to enjoy some fine jazz by Erik Hassle and Lars Jansson among others that were playing prior to us. We made a little remark to each other that their stuff really differed to what we were doing and we kind of asked ourselves, will this work concerning the traditional “jazz festival” sense? As we headed up on stage those concerns flew away like a little whinchat as the crowd gave us a warm welcome. It was a really mixed crowd with both old and young, men, women and others. Everybody got soaked up in the music! Me, I couldn’t remember what I was doing. Time flew. All of a sudden it was the last song and it felt like we just started playing. It’s always a blast playing with Gustaf and Morgan. Those guys can put out some earth poundering noise and rock out like freaks from outer space, but at the same time they have a fantastic sensibility and the ability to really listen and embody themselves with the music. Just wow! Can’t wait ’til next time!

Busat

This song is of the 2015 album “Beyond Horizons” with Thymeshift. Originally it was written for a project I called “Reinbear” and is a part of a sequence of songs I wrote  influenced by the different types of reindeers existing in the Sapmi language. A Busat-reindeer has large testicles or only one, very large, testicle.
