Tom Petty - Don't Come Around Here No More

For around two weeks ago so we had to really celebrate a visit from no less than Tom Petty! It certainly was not last night he was here last, kind 20 years or so. That one have been waiting for this moment and wow what a gig it was. Tom Petty and his Heartbreakers rocked really at Globen and offered the entire registry when it came to selections from his musical treasure chest (check the setlist below).

Of course the camera went up, but only the portable camera, the "fine" camera had to stay home this evening. But Micke Sandström got the chance to shoot for real, so I take the opportunity to show some of his pictures, see below.

Thomas Earl "Tom" Petty (born October 20, 1950) is an American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He is the frontman of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and was a founding member of the late 1980s supergroup Traveling Wilburys and Mudcrutch. He has also performed under the pseudonyms of Charlie T. Wilbury, Jr. and Muddy Wilbury.

He has recorded a number of hit singles with the Heartbreakers and as a solo artist, many of which remain heavily played on adult contemporary and classic rock radio. His music, and notably his hits, have become popular among younger generations as he continues to host sold-out shows. Throughout his career, Petty and his collaborators have sold 60 million albums.

Here are some pictures from the show, first my mediocre.

Here is some professional photos from the master man "Micke Sandström"

Todays tune "Don't Come Around Here No More" is a song written by Tom Petty of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and David A. Stewart of the Eurythmics. It was released in February 1985 as the lead single from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' 1985 album "Southern Accents".

The background of the tune:

The original inspiration was a romantic encounter that Stewart had with Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac. On The Howard Stern Show, Dave Stewart explained that the title's phrase was actually uttered by Nicks. She had broken up with Joe Walsh the night before, and invited Stewart to her place for a party after an early Eurythmics show in Los Angeles. Stewart did not know who she was at the time, but went anyway. When the party goers all disappeared to a bathroom for a couple of hours to snort cocaine, he decided to go upstairs to bed. He woke up at 5am to find Nicks in his room trying on Victorian clothing and described the entire scenario as very much reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland. Later that morning, she told Walsh, "Don't come around here no more".

Candlemass - The Sound of Dying Demons

Today we serve a real double penetration, first this week's album and then a bunch of photos from the band's release party .... erm double penetration sounds a little crazy there, but who cares.

Candlemass is one of the pioneers of doom metal, with the iconic album "Epicus Doomicus Metallicus", released in 1986. Now the band has recorded what Leif say will be their final studio album, "Psalms For The Undead". They still plan to play live, for how long is still unknown.

Psalms For The Undead is the 11:th album and to be the last to feature vocalist Robert Lowe, who has since been replaced by Therion/Krux singer Mats Levén for touring purposes. In addition, keyboardist Per Wiberg (Ex-Opeth, Spiritual Beggars) would also join the band on stage for these live shows.

The album continues in the same familiar path without any significant excesses, the album is the catchiest overall songwriting Leif's done in the past 10 years. Even Rob sounds excellent, it's perhaps the best he's sounded to date. The tunes have a real blazingly melodic with heavy, doomy riffs. And in overall this album is a real highclass Candlemass album a must if you dig this.

Now that the doomsday bells are ringing for the last time, I put in this with a great satisfaction that Candlemass choose to end with the flag on top, an extremely worthy bookend for an incredibly impressive journey. Regardless of how much time you want to waste wondering if they will stick to the ultimatum, but I really hope that they do.

In conjunction with the release of the album, arranged Candlemass a concert (release party) at Debaser here in Stockholm, of course, I was there. A concert that really were of good standard and lots of classic tracks were played, a complete musical enjoyment.

Here is some pictures taken during the evening.

My friend Jojje with Leif

Todays tune "The Sound of Dying Demons" is taken from the last record "Psalms For The Undead". A tune that is very true to its title, as it’s slow, heavy and epic as hell.

Thank you, Candlemass, for all these years and countless hours that are spent together with your wonderfully epic doom. Things simply are not going to be the same without you.

Dropkick Murphys - Johnny, I Hardly Knew Ya´

 Today Dropkick Murphys plays at Gröna Lund, Stockholm Sweden!

 I heard it was a ball.
Me and Stones were home, Im planning for Getaway and Stones is sitting an doing some piece of art. Hm a big is angry cos a pen just fucked up his other painting was... a cock.....uhm lemme show u :p

Back to Dropkick, they released their latest album last year named "Going Out Of Style",

that was their 7th album.

 "I think our goal is to be the AC/DC of Celtic punk rock. The worst thing we can do to the local fans who have stuck with us is to all of a sudden try to be Fall Out Boys with bagpipes."

Al Barr commented "We've always said we're like The Ramones or AC/DC with what we do; if it ain't broke, don't fix it. But at the same time, we have to keep challenging ourselves. And if we find that tunes we're putting together for a record are boring us, we're not going to record them."

More info @

Im going to show u a tune from their 6th album "The Meanest Of Time".

Folks, This is Dropkick Murphys!

Cheers, Thetania
