'Gogobot' latest video!

Last of the Sea-Saw series ''We are here'' is maybe their best video to date! Why not use ''Songcaster'' to listen through your LINN system while you watch:

Some Pictures of Lady Claire Martin concert!

Big thanks to everyone whom attended our first Jazz concert. It's not every day that you sit in such a small venue and listen to big artist and 'wal' was she good! I have some recordings which will go on youtube soon but for now I'm afraid it's just pictures from the evening!

What's funny is i have been trying to place the name 'Gareth Williams' (pianist in Gareth Williams trio) since I booked the event and of course now I know ... he is also signed on LINNrecords and has his own album ... ironically I already own it!

Big thanks again to everyone and hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. We still have 'signed' copies of Claire martin 'A Modert Art' for sale from the shop or for postal order. Drop an email if you would like one: 150 Kr.

Tony McManus


Big thanks to Göran Berg for inviting me to see one of the most fascinating gigs of my life by a man widely acclaimed as one of the worlds best Celtic acoustic guitarists .. Tony McManus.

Click on the picture above to check him out.

When you find yourself pointing and laughing at a performance you know it's just ridiculous and something special! I seen Joe Bonnamassa last year and yes he plays really fast, incredibly fast and is really amazing ... Tony is like Joe Bonnamassa but with 5 times more musicality ....

Had a good chat with him afterwards and he has played several times with Tommy Peoples (on my Dad's side, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hebBrG8cLbs) and says Tommy is his hero ... small world.

So I told him I worked with LINN & it turns out he has played as a session guitarist on many of LINN's recordings for Calum Malcolm but a long time ago. We talked about what LINN are doing with studio master music, how LINN won Record label of the Year, a Brit Award and their impact on the majors like Atlantic Records. Tony was very interested and told me about a classical piece he has recorded ''Bach Chaccone in d-minor''. Going to ring Gilad this morning ... this has to go out on LINNrecords ... I mean he is from Glasgow and is a musical genius ... of course he should go out on LINNrecords!

You can check out Tony for yourself this weekend as he is special guest for 'Majornas 3DJE ROTE' that will play their album release event in one of my favourite venues in Gothenburg, Nefertitti. (http://www.nefertiti.se/program/?view=1422). Turns out they are also inspired of Tommy Peoples and some of the band members are in a local band called 'tommy's people' ... this is a very small world!

Joe (Joe Peoples) runs the best bar in Ireland ... unchanged ... well since I remember and I was in there first when I was about 4 years old ... there is still is no sign on the wall to say it's a pub, just a half open door ... funny place but anyway it will be interesting to tell Joe how famous his Brother is 'abroad'!

The Sound Sofa! Soffa m. akustikfunktion

Big thanks to LK Hjelle for the new DUO sofa & very nice tables too!

Lets face it, for the most of us, we will put our best system in our living room and we will have to convince our better halves that it will work aesthetically. Peoples and Schmidt feel the best way to do that is too prove it will work so we have fantastic LINN systems in every room ... and what's different from the average shop is that each individual room not only sounds great but looks great thanks to our partners whom supply our luxury interiors and artwork.




Welcome to our shop where its easier to convince your partner to buy that great system you have always wanted! In any other shop she/he would be dragging you away & saying ''you must be joking darling'' ... Laugh ...

The DUO sofa from LK Hjelle was designed by 'Norway Says & Hallgeir Homstvedt'. By zipping up the panels (integrated acoustic panels) on the back and sides of the sofa you create your own quiet space where you can relax to listen to music, watch a film or read a book in piece while normal noisy family life continues behind you.

A silent Oasis in an otherwise noise polluted life ... great! When you feel for being more social, simply zip down the sides again and you have a great looking functional sofa.

Let us demonstrate what it does for the performance of our LINN system in an otherwise hard and difficult room (our own Majik room) ... it's very impressive!

The DUO sofa is beautiful but it's also a high performance solution.

Available for purchase from Peoples and Schmidt.

Idol

I love idol ,,, just brilliant ... How can you NOT like it?

Here are my reasons why I love idol!

- People take a chance, put themselves in the firing line, not just in front of a few friends or family but the whole Country ... They stand up on TV and sing! Seriously how amazing is that ...

Of course some people are shot down, mostly just by being told the truth but for the talented ones, they emerge from probably the most vulnerable position they will ever put themselves in to be totally reborn. Watching these moments blows my mind .... It's just wonderful ... I can't help but be happy!

- Then the music ... these are seriously talented people, some of the performances are amazing ... totally emotion filled. They are on TV, in front of an audience and they are desperate to do their best ... I can't begin to imagine what they are going through but sometimes with the better performances you feel it ... I find it hard to describe how happy I get just watching so for them ... well Nirvana when they get it right ...

- Then the comments ... Have you seen how happy Alexander Bard gets with a good performance ... he literally hops in his chair, Laila Bagge falls in love ... check her eyes and how Anders Bagges nails describing what's good about something ... the tone, the register, the pitch, the timing, the blick ... the performance. You can watch how their lives are effected by music.

So why am I rambling on about idol well because that's what it's all about ... what music can do for you, the emotions it can bring to the surface in everyone. Music is important, it can positively impact your life if you let it ... it can change your life!

It's all about feelings! Why do you think so many young people get through the stages ... simple they are so fresh, so talented, so unpolluted with 'what's good or bad' they feel there way through life, everything is new and interesting and of course it strolls through in their performances. Susan Boyle is by no means young but perhaps her sheltered life prior to 'Britain's got Talent'' is in some way similar ...



My favourite TV moment of all time was Susan Boyle! 76 Million hits on youtube say allot but not as much as the performance!
