Kosmik Boogie Tribe - We’ve Got The Cash

Way Out West is now finally over, a festival that one is actually looking forward to each year. This was my 11th year in Slottsskogen, Gothenburg. This time we got very mixed weather, I mean very mixed, not just rain that we usually tampered with, but now we also got thunderstorms that stopped building on two occasions, a storm that passed thru and collected everything loose with it, signs, tents, fence cover, ash trays, etc. It was not only misery, one festival day with sun :)

The lineup for Wow was as usually very varied, where Thåström was crowned as king of the forest. Iggy Pop an long-standing artist that still keeps rocking, a cruel concert from a awesome artist. Patti Smith delivered and Kamasi Washington had a fabulous swing. Besides this, it was a fantastic bunch of peoples that worked really hard to make this to be the best festival ever, and the vegan ice cream tasted surprisingly good, the food was ok to be vegetarian, but I sadly missed the test of the Eco Gin. Overall the score for this year's festival was high.

So let's leave the Indie/Pop tunes and call back the some Flat out guitar rock.


KBT is a five piece rock and roll group based in Oslo, Norway. Each member originally hails from different rural parts of Norway but have been living in the capital for ages and have all been part of different aspects of the Oslo rock underground as bartenders, sound engineers, band hosts, booking agents and the lot for years and years at various clubs and venues. They literally live and breathe rock’n’roll.

The members also contribute in different ways with recording artists such as THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE ZUGLY, LONELY KAMEL, BACKSTREET GIRLS, THE MORMONES, COCKROACH CLAN and others.

Today's tune "We’ve Got The Cash" is taken from "We’re Not Here to Fu*k Spiders", The third release from Norwegian quintet! The album is an incendiary slab of no-bullshit, gutbucket rock n’ roll.

Lykke Li – Never Gonna Love Again

Since the release of her debut EP Little Bit in 2008, Swedish chanteuse Lykke Li has become an iconic staple of the indie-pop world with a decade spanning career. With four acclaimed albums under her belt amassing over a quarter of a billion Spotify streams, Lykke has accrued endless accolades. From “Best Album of the Year” nods from the likes of The New York Times and Rolling Stone to performing on the renowned stages of music festivals like Glastonbury, Coachella and Lollapalooza. June 2018 Lykke Li released her fourth studio album so sad so sexy to widespread critical acclaim. Her performance at Way Out West will be her only Swedish performance this summer.

In 2016-2017, she was busy nurturing, liv, her love child with Andrew Wyatt, Björn Yttling, Pontus Winnberg & Jeff Bhasker – a project that allowed the collective to mutually have a creative outlet.

Lykke Li did perform in Slottsskogen on Saturday, August 11.

Today's tune "Never Gonna Love Again" is taken from the third studio album "I Never Learn", released on 2 May 2014 by LL Recordings and Atlantic Records.

Popsicle - Not Forever

Few bands have been so characteristic for their time as POPSICLE. With classic hits like Sunkissed, "Hey Princess" and "Not Forever" they became the soundtrack for many people’s 90’s. Now they are back and ready to take on Linné stage at Way Out West.

POPSICLE is a pop group in Piteå in Sweden, which together with THIS PERFECT DAY, THE WANNADIES and BRAINPOOL started the 1990s indiepop wave in Sweden.

POPSICLE may have laid the foundations of the Swedish indie scene, but it was not until four years later as the band played through to a wider audience, that they had their biggest hit - the single and today's tune "Not Forever" from the self-titled third album.

Iggy Pop - Lust For Life

There’s a reason why many consider Iggy Pop the godfather of punk – every single punk band of the past and present has either knowingly or unknowingly borrowed a thing or two from him and his late-’60s/early ’70s band, The Stooges. Widely acknowledged as one of the most dynamic stage performers of all time, Iggy Pop pre-figured both ‘70s punk and ‘90s grunge and has built a legendary career filled with both critical acclaim and fanatic cult success. Many say you should put seeing Iggy rock out on one’s “must see” list – his fans of all generations are the first to testify to that. This summer you will get the chance to cross him out on that list, as Iggy Pop will take his spectacular live show to Way Out West this summer.

Iggy Pop has released some 20 albums during his over 50 year long career. The first two of Iggy Pop’s solo albums after disbanding THE STOOGES were co-written and produced by David Bowie – collaboration widely discussed as one of the most epic musical alliances. Some of those albums produced anthemic sounds like The Passenger, commercially successful collaborations like Candy(with Kate Pierson) and hits featured in cult movies (Lust for Life, Repo Man and In the Death Car). His latest – Post Pop Depression – was released in 2016 and became a huge success. In 2010, Iggy and the Stooges were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. His latest piece of new music was a collaboration between Jarvis Cocker of Pulp and himself, where they both recorded a magnificent cover version of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds Red Right Hand for the TV-series Peaky Blinders.

Iggy Pop was performing in Slottsskogen on Thursday August 9.

Todays tune "Lust for Life" is a 1977 song performed by Iggy Pop and co-written by David Bowie, featured on the album of the same name.
