I’ve played in different bands, different styles and with a selection of friends. Here are some of the recordings. The quality and style vary.
Karius & Baktus Instrumental
Drittlei – Drunk version: I made and play the bassline, melody, lyrics and vocals. Sjur is on guitar and back-up vocals.
En vise til mor: I made & play the solo guitar part, the chords created and played by Sjur.
Knuste Hjerter: I made and play both guitars, lyrics and vocals. Ole plays djembe.
Blue Moon: I play two guitars and melodica. The original tune is made by Elvis or some shit.
Paradis: I made and play guitar, vocals, bassline, melodica and lyrics. Sjur plays guitar and sing back-up vocals. Sjur’s friend plays drums (I can’t remember his name), plus a guy from Texas that was in the studio when we recorded added the bluesy guitar licks.
Travelling India: I wrote this while travelling in India, but the melody is based on a tune by an african, female singer (I can’t remember her name, but she died of aids).
Knuste Hjerter: This is an early recording of this song from a rehearsal. The song was only a couple of days old when this was recorded. I’ve written the song and play guitar, Knut plays guitar chords, Even (who doesn’t play djembe) plays djembe.
Morte Cerebrale – a rainy night in Soho: A cover song by The Pogues. Lyrics and melody by The Pogues.
Open Your Eyes: Bassline made by me. Kenneth on vocals, Anders on drums, Kalle & Tore on guitars. Lyrics by me.
Forlatt: This is also an early recording of this song from a rehearsal. I’ve written the song and play guitar, Knut plays guitar chords, Even (who doesn’t play djembe) plays djembe.
Drittlei – easy version: I’ve written the song and play the bassline (in other words melody, lyrics and vocals by me). Sjur is on guitar and sings along.
Just some guitar picking that I made up. The camera fell down when I hit the record button, but I didn’t care then and I still don’t care now.
Nu jävlar: an early punk tune we played when we had a band called Sublime Herrer. Anders on drums, Tore on guitar, Kalle on guitar, me on bass. Kalle and myself on vocals.
Sublime Herrer – kynisk svin: another early punk tune we played. Anders on drums, Tore on guitar, Kalle on guitar, me on bass. Kalle and myself on vocals.
Jegeren Gracchus: Another horrible recording from a rehearsal. I’ve written the song and play guitar, Knut plays guitar chords, Even (who doesn’t play djembe) plays djembe. Unfortunately I’ve never made a proper recording of this tune.
Jimmy Jass: Original melody by The Clash. I’ve made Norwegian lyrics to their song.
My acoustic version of M.D.C’s «I Remember»
There’s more crap like this on my YouTube profile. Look for Sublime Herrer, Max & Friends, Ghastly Gnat or Morte Cerebrale.
