Marhaug/Gustafsson split 7"
You thought 7" records were meant to contain pop music? Well, some people dance to other kinds of music, and Lasse Marhaug and Mats Gustafsson (The Thing) have shared a 7" vinyl, issued by Ukrainian Quasi Pop (2008). Marhaug plays turntable, guitar (I can even hear a guitar solo in there!) and collcts sounds on "So-So Green tea With Buddha", while Gustafsson plays slide sax and electronics on "Jag Vill Lyda Order" (ie I'll follow orders). Both tunes are tributed to Åke Hodell. That's a new name to me, but he seems to have been a Swedish fighter pilot, author and text-sound composer.
