I want to ride my bicicle ...

We have now taken down the photo gallery with snaps from New York City to be replaced by something quite literally 'second place ...'

Warm welcome to all for the opening of Christer Hedbergs photo exhibition with competing cyclists from around the globe with shots from when they 'almost' won! Really great exhibition ...
As usual great music will be played on our LINN systems & yes we will be playing Queen ..

Also as usual and becoming quite a tradition here - the fantastic combination of music, folköl (not strong beer) & maybe even some white wine ...

GoGoBot ''Sea-Saw-Series'' in 24 Bit ...

Let's face it, it's the music that matters ... it's the music that touches us! We of course want to listen to our absolute favourite artists in the highest possible quality. That for many of us means buying a great system with the best digital or analogue player at the heart of the system then getting a great installation. ''Rubbish in, rubbish out'' is a well known term for us that prioritise the source product in a system. But don't forget, the ultimate source is the format itself & the recording ... ''Rubbish in, rubbish out''! For older recordings that is usually the rare first press vinyl but for new recordings .. it's the original digital recording which is done at 24 bit rate in the studio.

LINN have already done the deal with Universal to release their back catalogue & of course have their own library but
Peoples& Schmidt have also been busy!

We hope confirm, next week, our first exclusive contract for 24 Bit release…

Chatting to Gordon today about the recording process ...

Interesting ... people try and squash everything into a certain range but a guy from Canada whom Gordon respects and is looking to, Chris Potter, is doing things differently.

All of the music, all of the time, no clipping at any frequency ...

''Letting the music breath''... Chris's use of dynamic control & mixes are second to none''

Have a listen ... amazingly good!Click the above picture to play!

Permission takes time ... but now we have it ... the start of the external signage for the 'New' shop ...

Maeve O'Boyle & Gordon (Gogobot) visiting the shop today ...

Nice to get a visit from some proper young stars and amazing musicians ... feel the abundance of enthusiasm. Gordon is just an awesome all round producer/mixer/musician ... Gogobot will be huge but I'd say he'll take other bands and artists a long way. We played some of his latest material on the Klimax system .. amazing!

And that's not all ... perhaps an amazing Live concert on it's way to Peoples & Schmidt humble premisses. Gordon is trying to get his friend (James) and lead singer of Glasvegas to do a gig in the shop ... that's be awesome! He does a great acoustic set and if he plays 'Daddy's Gone' here there are going to be tears!

Lets cross our fingers that Gordon has convinced him!! If James actually turns up when he is supposed to is another thing ... laugh

Have a nice weekend // Martin

'Klanger & Spår' this evening from 5:30 pm

**The usual perfect combination of 'folk öl' (not very strong beer) & music :) **

Welcome to 'Klanger & Spår', from 5:30 pm tomorrow: a music listening evening where anyone gets to play music that means something to them for whatever reason ... you can simply play or share your thoughts ... preferably on vinyl though we have been known to let some digital music through (bring a USB, we don't have a CD player)!

I'll be alone on this one as Christoffer, Musician/producer got snatched up by Depeche Mode for their next album. He'll be back in one month or so and hopefully with great tales and influences from Depeche, NY & LA ... for our next 'K&S' evening.

Music & Politics ... this is well done!

& If 24 Bit Tom Petty didn't impress you enough hear is some more great 24 Bit from LINNrecords...

Just when you thought ... announcement about Universal Music couldn't get any better, we are proud to announce the addition of some of the best jazz music of all time to, including two Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winners: John Coltrane and Duke Ellington and Grammy Best Jazz Vocalist Award winner Diana Kräll.

Tom Petty ... Now available from LINNrecords

Klanger & Spår founder moves on to Depeche Mode ...but he'll be back :)

Big congratulations to Christoffer whom just got the job for Depeche Mode new record (click on the picture above for information). He flies out to LA in a weeks time so I'm afraid you have me as the host until he returns. Hopefully we will get a Depeche 'klanger & Spår' from him when he is back.

So I'm thinking next Thursday (22nd) evening kl 18:00 for light beer & great music. Klanger & Spår as presented by me :)

Latest from Bruce Springsteen

I read the newspaper this morning (GP) and seen Springsteen had a new album out with 4 of 5 stars from their ''slightly'' biased critic. Always worth checking out Mr Springsteen so I did just that and ... ''I like it''.

Bit folky, both with text and music. Think the big man has been listening to The Pogues, which is never a bad thing. Click the above picture to link to SPOTIFY

Anyone that has still not worked out how to play Spotify to their LINN DS player either from LINN SONGCAST (virtual soundcard) or using Apple AIRPLAY please give me a call. 0708948229 or email

My Irish friends cousin ... Time to get these boys over to do a gig in the shop!
