Johan Norberg's favourites

Post by sound world »

Anyone here? :mrgreen: Helloooo.....(echo...echo...echo)

Johan Norberg - He was the guitarist on ASCHE.

The whole article about 'ten records that changed his life' is worth reading https://vi.se/artikel/s0YwQ1ww-a0j2LRwp-473e3
You can get a Google translation

Here's his No. 1 (translated to English)

'We's music columnist Johan Norberg became obsessed, found comfort, found hope - and understood what he was pre-programmed to do. Here are the ten records that came to change his life.

1. Stina Nordenstam, And She Closed Her Eyes
In 1993, I was hired as a guitarist for a recording with Stina Nordenstam. I was impressed by her definite ideas the first day in the studio. When I started playing, Stina said gently but very seriously: "No, it should not be like that". She was 23 years old, I a ten years older, a little professional studio musician but in that moment I got a chance, and took it. I asked her to show me her guitar, the one she tuned in until two strings broke, and I removed strings from my guitar to understand. When the record was finished, my image of guitar playing and music had changed fundamentally. 20 years later, when Sweden's pop writers listed the 100 best Swedish records, this one - Stina Nordenstams And She Closed Her Eyes - ended up in first place.'

Still someone reading here, Dave. Although the facebook post about this article inspired me to take a look at the messageboard. :mrgreen:
