If you are a musician or band and you are not making live video with properly recorded audio, you are missing a great opportunity for exposure and your fans are missing a great experience they can enjoy from their living room.

If you make great music and perform LIVE please email me samples of your music and you never know, I might just make the material for you.

Peoples & Schmidt are the founders of abandinabrewery, a regular live music event held in a brewery. Music ^ Beer ... simple! We also hold great concerts in our shop. In both cases we record each event to be enjoyed at a later date by those whom attended and those whom never.

We are converting two further rooms to studios and our intention is to be the best at making live recordings.


Maeve O'Boyle to release some seasonal classics in HD quality to enjoy this Christmas day!

Please email Gordon (in English) to: with your full name and address. You will receive payment information and a download link for your HD downloads.

.... When performing live at The Whitehouse, Christmas 2012, Maeve received requests to play some Christmas classics. So appreciated were they that Maeve was inspired to make some studio recordings of just those very songs. 

Merry Christmas from Peoples & Schmidt & Maeve O'Boyle

AVA Media RipnPlay 2TB **New Features**

I plugged in the 'NEW' AVA Media RipnPlay (from 10,000 kr) today. The rest of the system consisted of AVA Maestro-50 (3495 kr) and a pair of LINN Unik speakers (4000 kr), 10 seconds later I opened my UpNp control software from LINN (Kinsky), selected RipnPlay as my player, chose a track and played Mumford & Sons (Babel 24 Bit). BAM!!

The sound stage is amazing, the clarity is amazing, even the timing ... amazing! What an amazing player and remember this is not just a digital streaming UpNp controlled source product but even an automatic ripping NAS with 2TB of on-board storage.

**it's amazingly simple ... anyone can rip their music collection automatically with it and stream to their HiFi after a 30 second demonstration**

The chassis is machine from a single nougat of aluminium and with an anodized finish looks and feels amazing, but this chassis protects from unwanted noise and acts as a heat sink so 'No FANS'.

''Not only does it store all of your music …

LINN's New Klimax Exakt System **IN OUR SHOP**

Well the Exakt system does fit in rather well in our shop and straight off I must confess it literally blows away our Akubarik system which I have been quite in love with these last months ... that's even with the Exakt system optimisation off.

At the price you would expect the huge performance improvement but it's depressingly (due to the price difference), demonstrably simple and true with LINN, if you pay more you get more!

First up is Emily Barker and our own recording from Her concert in the shop here just a week ago. What's instantly noticeable is that I can't stop listening and really don't want to interrupt Her by switching track. That's a great indication that something is very right. The bass is way too heavy so we move the speakers out from the wall (we had pushed them in for the concert) and as well as clearer to follow and understand, we get an amazing sound stage. A few more position changes, level then exactly the same distance from the back wall…

Modern thinking, modern materials and fantastic performance ...

I found this little beauty after a hot tip from Peter Tolebjär in Borås. With wild claims about it's performance on US guitar forums with Martin guitar owners declaring their very expensive HD28's & D35's are lying unused in their cupboards, it seemed worth while  getting a hold of one.

After some research into where I could actually buy this guitar, I tracked it down to St Johnston, Co Donegal, Ireland ... a tiny Irish village and coincidentally birth place to both my Mother & Father (I'm Scottish but I guess you could argue ..)

Quite simply I am forced to buying this amazing piece of innovative Irish craft-work and hopefully will confirm distribution over here after my factory visit on 6th January.

To be honest I haven't played it as much as my own fancy Martin's but I am stunned by how amazingly 'correct' it is! Add the benefits that it rarely needs tuning (doen't expand and contract with air conditions), never needs service to adjust the n…
Just to avoid confusion please be aware that Emily is also playing our event ''abandinabrewery'' here at Bibliotek Brewery, Gothenburg on 30th November. Tickets are already reserved for that event but please feel welcome to join the list should anyone cancel. Tickets are transferable but not refundable.

Help an amazing young artist to the TOP!!

Please support SCOPE, whom played our shop just a few weeks ago by purchasing His debut single, Lovestruck, featuring Maeve O'Boyle. Yesterday it was Top10 on UK iTunes Hip Hop charts and Top 200 (149) in UK Top Charts. Amazing!! The goal is Top 40, deadline Sunday!!!



SCOPE Played the international MOBO (music of black origin) awards just two weeks ago and here is some footage. Remember to put Youtube quality to HD (bottom right on the view screen)

If you are gonna do something you may as well go all out ....

Every once and a while you gotta look at and adjust your goals. Every once and a while new opportunities pop up, ones that perhaps you previously had judged to be unrealistic or simply out of reach.

So Peoples & Schmidt are looking for the impossible. A new central location in Gothenburg with space of course for an amazing LINN showroom like we have today but also for an amazing music studio and event room for up to 300 people. 

The story is simple, NOT a technical explanation of watts, Class A or B or C or cables, NOT hokus-pokus miracle torques on screws or guru touches but rather a demonstrably better music experience, on-site ... from the artist, the recording to the playback. 

The goal is to start with an artist in a room with the best recording equipment and finish in another room with the same amazing performance through your playback system. The visitor can experience an amazing LIVE performance, witness the recording and post recording processes and listen to the result, rep…

Nice Pipes!

On the bright side look at the latest music playback system to arrive at P&S. Very exact but not 'Exakt' if you get my meaning?

SCOPE meeting the founder of the MOBO awards


SCOPE LIVE at Peoples & Schmidt, 2013

Lewis (SCOPE) played our shop  a few weeks ago and is making new industry friends fast with the help of Toytownrecords

He is of course playing LIVE at the MOBO awards and hopefully I'll get some material for you from there but here is a nice picture of SCOPE with the founder of MOBO

I should really be an interior designer!

Alan Williams, 'bless his cotton socks' ... asked me ''why do you have a beautiful shop like this then put pick-ups and prices in your display case in the wall''? 

Sometimes that man had a point ... whiskey & anniversary glass ... Better? 

Some more pics from today's LINN rooms at Peoples & Schmidt.

And yes that is my brand new 5000 watt mega lamp, to left of Akubarik speakers in blue, that you can see in the picture. What a beauty!!

Little treat for those whom seen 'SCOPE' here first ... little bugger has got a gig at the MOBO awards*! If your good, your good ...

SCOPE played here a few weeks ago in our shop and is obviously destined for better things and it never took long. 

He has been asked by the founder of the MOBO awards to play live at a special party to be attended by industry giants.

Here is a video they made yesterday with an acoustic version of SCOPE's upcoming single 'Love Struck', guesting the one and only Maeve O'Boyle. (Maeves's brand new album is now out on LINNrecords in 24 Bit. BUY HERE)

I love P3 'musikguiden' since discovering it a year or so ago on a long road trip from Stockholm to Gothenburg. The marvelous 'First Aid Kit' were playing their favourite tracks.

Last nigh was Glasvegas turn to chose the tunes ... well done James & Jonna!


How a cornet can get you killed!


Translation (as good as it goes): In the picture we see five Men. Four of the Men hate the fifth and the threat of violence hangs in the air. The reason is obvious; the little Man to the right is playing cornet, shit-loud, right in the face of the others.

He has even taken a belt over His kidneys which allows Him to come up in abnormal volume levels without any flaws in the performance. We do not know how long he has been there and played, but everyone who heard the potential sound pressure of a cornet, at distance of two decimetres, understands that every note is cutting through the bone and marrow of the poor other musicians .The man who is most vulnerable and whose eardrums have already sprung a leak is sitting down with an impressively bad posture, like a lost man praying. He sits poised at the edge of the chair with thighs pointing down and with prominent shoulders and arms hanging almost paralysed by His sides. Right beh…
