TESTBILD!-MUSIK I NYA HENRIK MÖLLER-DVD:N

Friday, September 4th, 2009

“Det fina med de här filmerna (och även andra av Möller) är att de med små produktionsmedel och på kort tid lyckas genomborra svåra frågor som ensamhet, utanförskap och förnedring. Den svarta humorn är förfinad och visar ibland upp sig i sin extremaste form. Hade dessa filmer gjorts med en större produktion tror jag inte det hade blivit lika bra. Råheten förstärks bara genom att man märker och känner av den låga budgeten. Filmerna verkar också gjorda med stor kreativ lust och energi som exploderat i dessa små obehagliga och fantastiska verk. Ibland är det bara våld och död. Ibland är det rena poesin.” / SMOGG

Senare denna månad släpps Henrik Möllers DVD “Kaninhoran och andra barndomsminnen från Malmö”, som samlar det mesta och bästa av hans kortfilmsproduktion (innehåller alltså inte Malmö-filmerna som gjorts tillsammans med Video Direkt.), till exempel “Det trötta hatet” som visas ovan och de ritade Rufus-filmerna. Testbild! medverkar med en del musik på DVD:n. I vissa fall är musiken specialskriven (som till menyerna), men i andra fall används låtar från skivorna. Det är inte Friendly Noise som ger ut “Kaninhoran…”, men vi gillar Henrik Möller och vill gärna tipsa om att man kan förbeställa DVD:n här.

FIVE YEARS OF FRIENDLY NOISE

Tuesday, February 19th, 2008

In March it’s exactly five years since our first record, “Friendly People Making Noise”, was released. We will celebrate this jubilee by a whole bunch of events this Spring. It all seems interesting and fun, we think. For interviews and/or more info contact us first through e-mail: friendlynoise@gmail.com

* In March it’s exactly five years since our first record, “Friendly People Making Noise”! We will celebrate this jubilee by a whole bunch of events:

* First, on Wednesday 5 March, there will be a release party at Allmänna Galleriet for the second issue of film magazine FLM where Friendly Noise again is responsible for the musical content: Sarto will perform live, we will DJ, and videos for “Clouds in transit” by Testbild! and “I look out for you” and “ICA Lappis” by Action Biker will be shown.

* Then, on Thursday 27 March, there’s a Friendly Night at Debaser Slussen, where Testbild!, Most Valuable Players and Differnet will perform live. The same night we hope our two new records will be available for the first time: “Splendid Isolation” (FYN 068), a compilation of a selection of songs from our 2007 mp3 series, and “Hesperian Puisto”, the long-awaited debut album from Action Biker (FYN 069). Don’t miss the Action Biker interview in the new issue of Bon, issue #42.

* And that’s not all, Friendly Noise will also host a club in Stockholm with live music and DJ:s. It will be the first Tuesday every month, beginning in April, at Sugar Bar.

Other news: The three latest Friendly Noise albums are now available via Radio Khartoum’s Friendly Goods which means much much better availability in America from now on. Also, “Day for night” by The Dreamers are now distributed in Japan, through Quince!

DET HÄR ÄR VAD VI KALLAR TVÅ RÄTT LOVANDE KONSERTKVÄLLAR

Thursday, October 4th, 2007

Kristoffer Poppius i dagens DN På Stan:

Kissing Mirrors
Debaser Medis, fredag kl 19-3
Det är i mötet mellan de tvärflöjtspelande oskulderna från Södra Latin och texterna om sex, död och petit fours som det uppstår något intressant. Pretentiösa elvamannabandet Kissing Mirrors, med kapellmästare Per Johansson i spetsen, gör musik av helt andra skäl än att hänga i replokalen och kanske få släppa en platta, och är självfallet alldeles för bra för Sverige.

The Dreamers

Stacken, onsdag kl. 21-1
Sarah Nyberg Pergament, mer känd som Action Biker, och Kevin Wright, Always, har duon The Dreamers ihop, och att få den där lättheten att inte bara bli en kuliss är så svårt. Men i bossastunderna låter de som Englands bästa band, The Montgolfier Brothers, och i “A Place I Know” glömmer man bort längtan efter Sveriges dito, Eggstone.
