Bryan Ferry at Liseberg....

Liseberg, 27th May 2011

The last time I saw Ferry was in Mars 1977 at Scandinavium ....thirty-four years later he starts the concert on a low gear, but very soon we reach greater heights through his unique ability to create melodic sound carpets. Ferry is a gentleman in every way, and creates space for the excellent band to shine through the whole concert.

Best in show ....the whole show, "Slave to Love", "Avalon",
"All Along the Watchtower" ....and everything else!

Welcome back soon Mr. Ferry !

Mauritz Kaffe....

..en tvåa med rågbröd..

..35 years of patina...

I've been a costumer here since the late 70`s, and never been disappointed. Mauritz was for many years one of the few places where one could enjoy good coffee....then came a stilted "coffee culture" with a bunch of fancy names.
Unfortunately, it appears that Mauritz must move away under a near future, because of a hefty rent increase. So if you are passing Fredsgatan 2 ... go in and order a "Tvåa med rågbröd" (double espresso and a round bread with Grevé cheese), listen to the music, and enjoy this unique environment. Believe me....it's worth every minute.

Göteborg as became a [bad] joke....

Clarion Hotel Post, Göteborg

Now the results are clearly visible and the old post office in Gothenburg has been raped by this misplaced tower. Is this a decision of lobotomised politicians....or incompetent urban planners ? The old Post Office was an architectural unit...!
