In 2008 I got the opportunity to shoot this amazing musician, Susanna Brandin, back then going by the name of Winter Took His Life. I remember her being very kind and patient all through the shoot on and around Ramberget (which is a small mountain and park, with a view over central Gothenburg, Sweden).
Bonnie “Prince” Billy live at Bohus Fästning, Sweden.
In the main set they played “I see a darkness” which created an extraordinary momentum which totally captured the audience. The song was followed by the cover of R. Kellys “The Worlds Greatest” and it was the greatest ending of the main set anyone could imagine and everyone in the crowd was dancing and cheering.
All the three (!) encores were great. Including the one with Nicolai Dunger (where N. Dunger sung and played guitar, while W. Oldham sung some backups).
This one came out a little flat…but I like it anyway.

I’d heard of the Secret Machines, but I hadn’t gotten around to actually listen to them. But back in 2004(?) I found myself at a small music festival and they were performing. They created a nice wall of sound and a good groove, really pleasant. I remember thinking “this sounds so good, but I will be sooo disappointed when I hear this shit on record”. And I was.
Still today I’m no fan of the Secret Machines. But at that concert they kicked ass.
