Björn kleinhenz - head held high on fearsome pride
Accompanied only by the morning sun, cigarettes, coffee and the sheep outside the window he spent a few weeks of the long winter rescoring what is now . His girlfriend Yrsa forbid him to work in the evenings because of the scary thumping through the roof down to the living room where she was reading and talking to Humle. So it is very much a morning album. Being cut off from people to play with and with no proper instruments the whole album has a very homemade feel to it. Rythmical parts put together by bits and pieces. Voices instead of keyboards to add atmosphere. Using small means to add details to the arrangements of the songs. Or like a friend visiting from Germany said when seeing Björn at work in his studio: "Bastel Und Rauch Mehr Alter!". Which is of course not what . stands for. It is a phrase used a lot by American soldiers during the 2nd World War when sending letters home to their wives and girlfriends meaning "Be Undressed And Ready My Angel". In a way quite similar to Björn's hopes of Göteborg when he comes back from his year in exile.
