Sandström "Om det inte händer nåt innan imorgon så
kommer jag" CD.
been reading this swedish author Sara Lidman and in one of her books there
is a passage where a wooden balk is trying to persuade a crofter to go
get a rope and hang himself to prove that he has dignity and the farmer
retorts: "Yes, tomorrow, I will come if nothing happens before tomorrow".
Reading that really shook me up. My granddad (on my moms side) hung himself
in 1968, upon realizing, after having been in debt for years, that he wasn't
gonna be able to continue being a farmer. The swedish government stole
all the natural resources from the north, from it's own people, they ruined
families and stole their land, the trees and the ore and funded the industrialisation
of the south with the immense profits. Smallholding was more or less extinguished
in a few decades and my grandad fell victim to this development. He caught
tuberculosis right when he started managing his own farm and never made
up for it. It's a long story but I reduced it to 64 minutes. Musically
it's a pretty wide spectrum but with a strong focus on telling the story,
capturing the time and the culture. Anyway, my mom thinks I've succeeded
and she should know, she lived through that shit, you know. I started writing
it inbetween recording and mixing of 'The shape of punk to come'. It's
been three and a half years. It's out at the end of May. Make sure you
get yourself a copy. Get one for your grandparents too. There's probably
still a thing or two they can tell you about this world.
