Spinning to Danko Jones "Wild Cat"

March 30th, 2017

Earlier today spinning to Danko Jones "Wild Cat". Just perfect while training, but do not believe I will play it several times - if listening til Danko I will be playing the old stuff.

Spinning to Johnossi "Blood Jungle"

March 2nd, 2017

What to do when I fall asleep together with #3 at 19:00 and Elin wakes me up at 22:30 telling me that I still sleep and needs to prepare for bed (after having tried to wake me up twice). Well, I got up and headed down in the basement to do what I had planned this evening anyhow, some alone quality time on the spinning bike. Listened to the latest album by Johnossi "Blood Jungle". Good one, served the purpose and I might even listen to it several times while working out (did also listen to the album at work today).

...And (finally) Justice For All....on Tidal

November 18th, 2016

...their whole catalogue now available ... https://listen.tidal.com/artist/8405

So now I can default back to not only AC/DC when the "new" music is nowhere to be found or no good.

Anvil live at Oak Metal Club

November 6th, 2016

Yesterday together with Anders, Espen, Roy and Sverre - Anvil live at Oak Metal Club. Some might have seen the documentary "Anvil: The Story of Anvil" (a sequel is actually soon to be released according to blabbermouth.net). So we headed to Oak, just a 5 minutes drive from where I live to see Anvil live. And concert at Oak is something special - just see how close we where to the band

Enthusiastic crowd

Legs in front of me

Spinning to Kvelertak

May 30th, 2016

Today, 47 minutes of rock'n roll, the new album Nattesferd by Kvelertak. Quite ok, I think I need to give it a few more times of playthrough before it really gets under my skin.

Doing as requested by Brett Anderson (Suede)

February 8th, 2016

Brett Anderson did say when he was a guest at Skavlan that he still did believe in the concept of an album, not just single songs. So to follow up I have now listened to Suedes new album Night Thoughts. Enjoyable, but not totally my cup of tea.

Marcus & Martinus in concert

December 20th, 2015

Yesterday at Bjørkelangen, Marcus & Martinus in concert...

The fans...hopefully they will consider this as the icing on the cake and we can get on with our lives without the constant nagging of playing Marcus and Martinus every time when driving the car and let me decide what music to play.

Spinning to Samsaya

April 25th, 2015

Yesterday I was spinning while listening to Samsaya and her new album Bombay Calling. Did enjoy it while working out, has a couple of potential hits as well. Simen did previously ask me to provide more details about each album I listen to, to much work, instead providing a link to a review of the album

And here showing how easy it is to loose focus while working out. Just by reaching out my hand I am able to grab a beer, or booze for that matter...trying to stay strong.

Rowing to Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts

April 6th, 2015

Yesterday rowing while listening to Scott Weiland and The Wildabouts and their album Blaster. Was actually not aware of it when picking the album, but I have listened to him a lot before when he was part of Stone Temple Pilots. Anyhow, Blaster, quite enjoyable, but not really work out music. Not really sure if I will listen to the album several times, but I won't turn off the music if it comes on the radio.

Spinning to The Sonics

April 6th, 2015

...The Sonics are an American garage rock band from Tacoma, Washington, originating in the early 1960s.[1] Among the Sonics' contemporaries were the Kingsmen, the Wailers, the Dynamics, the Regents, and Paul Revere & the Raiders. Their aggressive, hard-edged sound has been a major influence on punk, garage, and hard rock music worldwide, and they've been named as inspirations by Nirvana, Bruce Springsteen, The Fall, and other major artists....

"This is the Sonics" was released just now, and was quite enjoyable, might listen to the album several times when working out.
