Greystoke; The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes

I actually saw Greystoke: the Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes in the theatre back in the day. I thought it was a true masterpiece. At this time I’ve just seen some black and white Tarzan matinee flicks on Television. If they were with Johnny Weissmuller? I can’t really remember. But I remember sing som of these in color too. Maybe my mind playing tricks on me but I can remember watching these when...

Borgman – 2013 – A very odd film…

Once upon a blue moon, you come across a truly different movie. Borgman is one of those flicks where you initially start thinking about the meaning and significance of some of the events.

In Memoriam – Marie Fredriksson – 1958-2019

Marie Fredriksson was a pop-artist in Sweden long before she reached international success with...

Madman’s Choice – Vanity – 2017

I don’t know if Madman’s Choice wants to sound heavy or not. Or if they want to sound “out there”. I think they succeed with the latter. It’s kinda in the terms of Stoner Rock and it sounds like a long psychosis. A mild psychosis that is. There are plenty of bands where you easily can use the metaphor “high as a kite” for describing the music. Vanity has just a tad of that. I think it’s angled...

Nils Landgren Funk Unit – Funky Abba – 2004

Once in a blue moon a cover album worth mentioning pops up. To be honest, most of these are pretty unimaginative an boring, often just containing the song in a common arrangement. Of course, you can hear different voices from the original but everything else is usually quite the same. Funky Abba is different though. I should have realized that immediately when I picked it up as Nils Landgren doesn’t do anything but his own...
