Best Things in General 2010
bob hund, NWOBHM, finally getting Danzig, Touring with Nerverna, recording "Monty Python", recording new Nerverna album, Can, GR†LLGR†LL and a lot of that other Witch House or whatever young people call the music of DJ Shadow and Massive Attack nowadays, Brian Eno's German era in the 70's, Grindcore.
And books; I've been reading a lot this year, I'd say 50 books or something. And I've been writing quite a bit. If things work out, it'll be a busy 2011.
Look for Mattias Alkberg to release a new album with Neverna in 2011, along with a split album with Pascal and who knows? maybe even a new Bear Quartet record as well.
