Songs in Swedish, acoustic instruments, written after the 5 years being a drummer in a very loud and exited electric agitation, rejoice-, right on and revolutionary shamanistic music group like Pärson Sound/International Harvester/Träd, Gräs och Stenar. There was so many words that was not sung, on my part, so I had to write some songs. Both sorrowful and happy. The friends Roland Keijser, Torsten Eckerman, Nicke Ström, Torbjörn Abelli, Thomas Lundqvist, Bosse Skoglund, Bengt Berger, Anita Livstrand, Jakob Sjöholm, Sten Wallin, and Kära of course, play together with my voice and acoustic guitar, violin, african drum, cither and other sounds. Only one electric tune where I try to play the electric guitar.

Excellent stoned acid folk LP.

Thomas "Mera" Gartz -

Thank you for posting this. I love all the Pärson Sound, International Harvester, Harvester, Träd, Gräs Och Stenar stuff. I did not know the other projects existed.

I have one record posted that may be of interest to these fans. It is at http://divergentsound.blogspot.com/

It is a Träd, Gräs Och Stenar live record that was released a few years ago. The sound quality is a little crackly though, but a very good record.
