Punky's Dilemma was formed in 2001 by Mikael Calner (lead vocals, guitar) and Hanna Calner (backing vocals, percussion, ...) and today includes also Camilla Sjeren (keyboards, piano) plus live-members. They had released two songs at Labradors "Sound of Young Sweden #3". They usually play in Malmö at Inkonst, KB, Glassfabriken etc. They released a home-edited-ten-track CD, 'Scandinavia, that could be found at Rundgång record store, Malmö, and somewhere on the net.
Shelflife Records, from San Francisco, published in the United States an EP with 6 songs, "'Neath The Staring Skies", that, accoridng to the company, "immerses the listener in haunting male-female vocal harmonies echoing through layers of folky acoustic guitar and sparse but well-arranged bass, piano and percussion. To truly appreciate the sum of the parts, you'll want to sit back and let the waves of emotion wash over you. The band's name is taken from a Simon & Garfunkel song and Mikael Calner's songwriting shows some S&G influences, hints of Belle and Sebastian and 60s folk pop. "
In 2006, Punky's Dilemma has been recording in the Aerosol Grey Machine Studio with Christoffer Lundquist and they have published Echolon.
Olof Wallberg, a man of great speed and also an enthusiastic Televinken imitator and Joakim Olofsson, the slowest man seen on earth, met each other when playing the same basket ball team in Lund, Sweden. Nor Olof or Joakim was the coaches first pick of choice so they decided on quitting the lay-ups for music. Maja Agnas, a dalkulla from Leksand was fed up with scatting and playing in bands containing nobody but her family and relatives. She got down to southern Sweden with her trumpet hidden under her big jacket in search for a band. She met Petter Holmberg, as taken from the novel, Of mice and men, simply a guy too strong for his own good. They hooked up with Olof and Joakim and the band was almost complete. An album was recorded at AGM studio with the fabulous Christoffer Lundquist behind the wheels. But the band was still not happy. After a while of thinking they discovered that they needed a bass player. Johan Ådahl, a neighbour of the bands private hairdresser, turned out to be exactly what they were looking for! And the band was formed. The opposites Olof, and Joakim always had their minor quarrels about tempos of the songs. Therefore the name of the band was quite obvious, Fight Family.

On May 5, we will release Metro Jets’ soundtrack to the brilliant Swedish movie ”Rolling Like a Stone”. Metro Jets’ first single was released the same day we started Junk. So you could say that we continue our 1-year party with this wonderful follow-up. You can listen & buy the Metro Jets EP at CD ON. Release on iTunes will follow soon. For more info on Metro Jets, go here, or check out their page at My Space.
– It’s called Junk.
– I can’t hear you!
Everyone loves New David. That will stand clear May 8, when he will make a great performance at Mosebacke, Stockholm. Yes, the crowd loves it, and so do I. After a gig you can hear people in every corner asking where they can buy his music. Joined by six musicians, New David will play songs from his upcoming album (only weeks away from release now). We are all stunned. If New David continues to play this great, we’re forced to release a live album. At the moment, the album is being mixed. More info about the release coming up as soon as the mixing is done. In the meantime, check out some pics I took with my mobile on our Flickr page. You find New David’s two earlier releases in Junk Musik.
