Service lived forever...

Service - free zone, pop lab, gang turf, permanent vacation. Never an object, always a territory. That's the lesson I've been teaching. In that sense I gave to you my life, my ambition, my hope. And some haine of course.

And as promised, Service is deterritorialising. Both are carbon, remember: the diamond turns into pencil, tracing nomadic paths. And the music becomes weapon in the hands of new partisans.

Now take it, it's yours.

..................................................

"Why so hard!" - said to the diamond one day the charcoal; "are we then not near relatives?"

Why so soft? O my brethren; thus do I ask you: are ye then not - my brethren?

Why so soft, so submissive and yielding? Why is there so much negation and abnegation in your hearts? Why is there so little fate in your looks?

And if ye will not be fates and inexorable ones, how can ye one day - conquer with me?

And if your hardness will not glance and cut and chip to pieces, how can ye one day - create with me?

/F. Nietzsche

CD album

Available on CD, iTunes and Spotify.

The new master piece from Kortedala's suavest, the true genius of Scandinavian indie crooning, the uniquely literary pop man from the west coast of every continent.

"'I Know What Love Isn't' is my debut album. After spending a decade making records of loosely connected stories and sounds I finally made an album with one story instead of ten. A story that is not new, but essentially human. The story of the grey areas of love that you have to excavate and explore, using the process of elimination, to maybe not find out what love is, but at least get a bit closer." Jens Lekman

Memoarer som i sin hårda men krackelerade poesi svävar längst ut på kanten, kongenialt med den erfarenhet som gör allt för att undslippa beskrivning. En urban ond saga för sann att ljugas ihop. Konkreta sånger hos den som alltid bär dem inom sig.

En biografi skriven liksom av sprickorna i folkhemsfasaden. Stockholms topografi, sedd från undersidan.


I rummet in till vänster står liten tv.
Tror att den är trasig för den visar bara myrornas krig. Han tar en 5 millimeters Poscapenna, skriver över krigande myror, " I varje hjärta armt och mörkt". När lägenheten byggs om flyttar han och hans boyfriend ut. De flög förbi, lyste upp mitt hjärta.
Där hjärtat är varmt vill jag bo för där känns allt mindre fult.

Alla sitter i en bil
Ingen bryr sig egentligen om någon annan än sig själv.
Fast lite obehagligt blir det när Deme öppnar väskan han snott ifrån Pickupmannen. Väskan innehåller bara vassa saker. Tur att du inte följde med gubben säger nån.
Jag sitter mest och är skitförbannad på att jag inte blev insläppt på Public Enemy.
Ingen kan köra bilen.

http://fulaedith.blogspot.com/


Utgiven i samarbete med Emotion.

Jonas Thente i DN:
"Någon har slagit sönder ruta på kiosk. Öppnar väska lastar i allt godis jag kommer åt sträcker mig på tå, vill till chipspåsar längst in. Skär sönder lillfingertopp på väg ut. I lägenheten lägger jag ut godis på golv sätter en bit tejp på fingret kryper ner under ett täcke vi hittade i en olåst bil. Täcket rosa låg i svart sopsäck det har små och stora blodfläckar på. Vi orkade aldrig tvätta det. Jag somnar."

- Den heter ”Svart sopsäck” och visst manifesteras snittet mellan Stefan Jarl och Gullan Bornemark ganska väl här. Ett genomgående grepp är det där att beskriva skeenden som vore de regianvisningar till någon annans liv. Fula Ediths kanske – hon som bara nästan är diktjag för någon som bara eventuellt använder henne som alter ego.

Så har vi hela uppsättningen bifigurer. Mona Lisa Overdrive, Tefatssystrarna, Ormskinnsindianen, Röd, Target-flickan, Santa Junky Doktorn på Östermalm och Turknäsan. Med flera. Man anar Jeff Noon, William Gibson, Banksy, Los Bros Hernandez och Kathy Acker nickande någonstans i kulissen, och det är beröm.

Så bygger Josefin Hinders fram en surrealistisk hyperrealism som är så absolut nu att den får i princip samtliga andra samtidsskildrare att skämmas lite.

"I'm slowly moving out of my old apartment to be homeless for a few months, and for the bonus cd I recorded a handful of songs as a last concert for these old brick walls. This is the cd you get if you've pre-ordered the album. It's called Kalendervägen 113.D and it has two unreleased songs on it "The Rain Has Got To Fall" and "Our Last Swim In The Ocean" as well as a couple of songs from Night Falls... and a Paul Simon song from Graceland I thought was suitable.

The "Julie Rmx" reminds me of Wayne Wonder´s summer smash "No Letting Go" with it´s charictaristic percussion. Strange, I know.

"...Anti-War..." is kind of a sequel to "...Riots?" from the album. This time Eros´ arrows hits Jens in a demonstration against USA´s war in Iraq. Pure pop close to "Black Cab" musically.

"...Hammer Hill" is a romantiziced look-back on Jens´young life in the Göteborgian suburbs. Contains samples from a bootleg someone made of Jens´gig in the unofficial mini-festival on the camping of the small Emmaboda festival. A nice guesture to his early fans? Genius.

”A Man Walks Into a Bar” prooves again who´s the nation´s funniest and most clever text writer.

CD EP

Three tracks of uppermost class and quality, marking The Embassy´s excitingly uncertin position between their first album and the future. "Information" melts over you softly as "Flipside" takes off as the ultimate package holiday pop setting straight for the dance floor, complete with jet motors trailing the skies. Then "New Plans" hints forward for the things to come.

The sleeve is picturing a live show situation with the least popular and least successful band coming of the Madchester scene, and the back side reads a curious clue concerning the disappearence of The Embassy, written in 1924.

All this in a way capturing or not the complexes and paradoxes of a radical pop art activist duo, whose music seems to be more confidently relaxed, warm and generous the more the band is floating into violent stances and communicating in ambiguous codes.

This limited edition (2.200) Ep is Jens Lekman´s farewell to his alias Rocky Dennis. The first track probably is the reason Jens involuntarely got his alias from the start, as someone a long time ago mistook the name in the title for the artist´s. But it actually was the name of the severely disfigured boy Rocky Dennis and the song is the story about him and his beloved blind girlfriend, in the form of a farewell letter as imagined by Jens. A movie called "Mask" based on their true story was filmed in 1985, starring Eric Stoltz and Cher.

Att kalla denna skiva för pop vore fel. Det räcker ju knappt att kalla den för musik. Missförstå mig inte - undersköna toner, stämningar och rytmer skvalpar genom rummet. Vi talar inte om nåt knepigt oljud eller konstigheter. Tvärtom är det en väldigt inbjudande skiva. Öm och personlig. Som en ny vän som berättar hemligheter för dig. Det är bara det att Erik de Vahls verksamhet för mig ter sig som något mer, eller åtminstone annat, än det som vanligen hamnar på de skivor som finns på butikernas hyllor. Secrets Adrift förefaller vara en metod, men också ett tillstånd. Ett sätt att... ja, ni vet. Men, och detta är viktigt, musiken i sig är inte intellektuell utan mycket emotionell. Tillfällig, övergående, men speglande. Fast jag kan förstås ha helt fel.

"När medvetandet får slukas och uppgå helt i harmonier och dissonanser kan man för en gångs skull känna att det inte bara är intellektet som vill ge sig av uppströms och sätta sig på tvären, utan att även känslorna och kroppen är med på det. Eftersom det mesta av min musik är improviserad vid inspelningstillfället kan man kanske tala om någon slags omedveten närvaro. Låtarna har vuxit fram oplanerat och spontant och är inspelade utan respekt för form och struktur. Musiken bygger på en strävan efter inkonsekvens." / Erik de Vahl

CD EP

A truly extensive debut EP that shows off Jens´s different modes. Both big, sample based arangements and intimate acoustic tracks. "Pocketful of Money" is loosely based on Beat Happening´s "Gravediggers Blues" and "Someone to Share My Life With" is a TV Personalities cover.

The EP hit big. It spent 22 weeks on the singles chart and peaked at no 11. Both "Maple Leaves" and "Black Cab" were radio hits.

Tracklist:
"Maple Leaves"
"Sky Phenomenon"
"Pocketful of Money"

CD EP

Three different modes of Franke: pop tune, heavy horror trip and ethereal beauty. All the tracks were remixed and remastered several times before satisfaction was reached. This thing eventually proved a swedish classic.

7" single

The single was released at the time for the second Hot Service party in that hangar at Valand Art School. That night The Studio made their debut stage appearance, and due to drug related time judgement problems the show was delayed until four in the morning. The palm tree on the cover could be seen sprayed on the walls of Göteborg at the time.
