You can dowload some of my albums from this page for FREE! I will add demo tapes and never before heard stuff later , when I find the time...and the tapes :-)
It's OK to copy/spread them for free (but not to sell them), you have my permission :-) I still own the rights to all my music, even though I've had recording deals in different countries. Since most of my records are sold out at the moment (in stores), I don't think that any company will mind all that much...
If you "want to HELP" financially, give a buck or two for the music to: Any poor people you see in the street or anywhere else. Many are "hurting", just help "someone" please!
Here are the free tracks from Liquid elev@tor

The album was available in a few versions, I don't even remember which one this was, but there you go. Industrial, pop and electronica mayhem. Some re-mixes were by Michael Wegar, others by Kalle Sinkkonen and a few tracks I recorded on my own, in my studio while I waited for the re-mixes.
In the bag
1 Be Bop Dun de Dum.mp3
(Release Waam 002) 1996, This was the first breakthrough CD since Waters (1982 Sweden-Canada release), ITB is a mix of electronica. Most instruments were played by hand though! We mostly used the sequencers as tape recorders, without quantizing anything, even if there are "some" loops.
The track God in my garage was on MTV Europe for many years! The track "There's a God in my garage" is also released by n'soul records in Hollywood, California, on their ELECTICA 3 1999 CD.
DJ's still think IN THE BAG still works because it's pretty timeless.
1 Box Americana.mp3
(2000, Release by Riverside Records RRCD 109, Stockholm). This is a rock/pop record, it has been on the air for 7 years now at least in the USA.
Luna Park (NEW)
1 Flowers in my hair.mp3
(Release 2006-7) Waam 009, New!)
This seems to become my most popular recording to date. My old friend and CO-founding member of Ben Antell Band, Sixten Sandvik plays the drums, and I (Ben) play all the other instruments, while the band were on vacation. The album is a mix of Hi/Lo Fi, it has a live rock feel. The basic tracks were recorded live in my painter's ateljé. I then did over-dubs until I was happy with the end result.
Blacklight Records, Kokomo Indiana, USA.
I had a high fever when I composed and recorded this track for Blacklight Records in one day.
