JAPANESE TELEVISION – Lucky 7

“The thing I really love about the Durutti Column and this song in particular is the simplicity and space.

SAUROPOD – Lucky 7

“Bellman was an 18th century Swedish composer and poet, who basically sung of sex, drugs and music before it was cool. Performed seamlessly hundreds of years later by Cornelis Vreeswijk, who’s like all of Scandinavia’s coolest folk singer. And that ever-shredding nylon guitarist next to him.”
