With a past like that he is almost a legend in the Swedish prog/psych scene. This is his 1st solo LP and here's what he says about it in his homepage :

"Songs in Swedish, acoustic instruments, written after the 5 years being a drummer in a very loud and exited electric agitation, rejoice-, right on and revolutionary shamanistic music group like Pärson Sound/International Harvester/Träd, Gräs och Stenar. There was so many words that was not sung, on my part, so I had to write some songs. Both sorrowful and happy. The friends Roland Keijser, Torsten Eckerman, Nicke Ström, Torbjörn Abelli, Thomas Lundqvist, Bosse Skoglund, Bengt Berger, Anita Livstrand, Jakob Sjöholm, Sten Wallin, and Kära of course, play together with my voice and acoustic guitar, violin, african drum, cither and other sounds. Only one electric tune where I try to play the electric guitar."

Highly Recommended!
