Träd Gräs & Stenar - Live Kafe 44 Stockholm 13/5-2000

Here is a live tape by TGS from one of their Stockholm gigs at punk venue Kafe 44. The sound is quite good but for my taste Bo Anders leads are a bit low in the mix, but that doesn't affect the music. Here you have a chance to hear and experience the TGS live experience with both generic rockers and unworldly uber Psych trips rarely heard or witnessed since the heady late 60's and early 70's. The opening jam, the 15 min version of "Sommarlåten" (Summer song) and Persson sound song "Till Indien" will blow ya socks off. I want to dedicate this post to the living memory of Torbjörn Abelli and I want to give my heart felt condolences to his family. Please share this super rare live tape with everyone who might/can appreciate it. Now psych out........

I want to tell you that Swedish psychedelic/minimalsit Bass legend Torbjörn Abelli has died . May his good psychedelia and warm heartedness not be forgotten. A true real people dude who never compromised when it came to playing psychedelia. He was fortunete to have success late in his career and played some of the best and deeepest psychedelia ever witnessed on this earth. I was fortunete to see TGS live several times and experienced their psychedelic magic in person. Torbjörn you will live on in the hearts of fans of real psychedelia. To see you again one day.

Arbete & Fritid - Håll Andan 1979

More Swedish Psychedelia and or Avantgarde rock. Arbete & Fritid (Work & freetime/leisuretime ) were a band that kind of sounded like a mix of Swedish folk music, Free jazz and minimalistic Psych of Terry Riley. Very original and unique in many ways but somehow they have slipped the attention of  Psych fans. This album features the rythm section of Träd Gräs & Stenar, more specifically Torbjörn Abelli (Bass) and Thomas Mera Gartz (drums) . Tracks here of special interst are "Dorisk drone" and "Thulcandra". These are deadringers for the psychedelic trance trips you expect from Träd gräs & stenar at their gigs when they let loose to speak..amazing stuff. Now I'll let you explore this SWE psych rarity and trip away...........
