If you wonder why it has been so quite on the front so can I tell that reason is our new upcoming releases. We have been working day and night to get everything together.
Maldito Primitivo was a band with Sabu, his two sons and various talented musicians...
The Dalecarlia Recordings also includes music from the album Aurora Borealis and some exciting live material with Bortalaget and Björbibandet. All recordings from my old high school.
News / Nyheter 28th of June 2008 (A Swedish version will follow below)
The rolling MELLOTRONEN shop will visit the festival PARKFESTEN 2008 outside Nora (örebro) the 12th of July. Hope to meet many Mellotronen friends on this new festival which we hope will be a yearly tradition.
We have just released a new and fresh double CD edition of KULTIVATOR - "Barndomens stigar". The CD will be available at our stand at PARKFESTEN as well as 1000 of other CDs, LPs and DVDs.
Talking about DVDs so is the editing of the mighty MELLOBOAT 2008 DVD done!!! The result is beyond all expectations!!! Hoping to release the double layer DVD in the end of August.
At the same time will our two releases of unreleased material with Sabu Martinez be available. Yes you have heard this before but now is it actually the truth!!! Believe it or not....
Here comes some important dates: 26th of September, 24th of October, 19th of November and 5th of December. These are the dates to remember if you are in the Stockholm area during the fall and wants to visit the MELLO-CLUB at Café Edenborg (Stora Nygatan 35, gamla stan). The coolest place in old town. We wil offer new arrivals of LPs, CDs, DVDs, fresh coffee, food, beer and music performed by interesting musicians. What can be better? See you all soon I hope / Stef.

Den rullande Mellotronen-shopen kommer att anlända till Nora den 12:e Juli. Där är det premiärdax för den nya festivalen PARKFESTEN. Hoppas att så många som möjligt av våra Mellotronenvänner dyker upp.
Med stolthet kan vi meddela att KULTIVATOR - "Barndomens stigar" äntligen finns i remastrerad dubbelutgåva. Den går att beställa i web-shopen men finns så klart med i vår ambulerande shop som stannar i Nora.
Klipparbetet av den kommande DVDn från Mellobåten 2008 har gått mycket bra och vid en genomgång tidigare idag så blev det gåshud vid flera tillfällen. Med lite tidsoptimism så finns dubbel-layer DVDn ute i Augusti precis som våra nästakommande utgåvor "Burned Sugar" och "Winds and Skins" med Sabu Martinez som har varit på G sedan 2004.
Som ni minns eller kanske hört talas om så var det fantastiskt trivsamt på Café Edenborg den 7:e Mars tidigare i år när vi hade förfest och PIU spelade så fint för alla oss 140 som klämt in oss i gamla stans coolaste café.
Nu har storchefen själv, nämligen Carl-Michael Edenborg erbjudit mig att ta över Caféet en dag i månaden. Så den 26:e September slås portarna upp för MELLO-CLUB. Förutom levande musik så kommer det att finnas mat, öl och skivor till kaffet. Övriga datum är 24:e Oktober, 19:e November och 5:e December. J det var det hele / Stef.

A hectic time is over and I want to thank all wonderful people who joined us at our 20th anniversary cruise. The passangers, the artists, the crew, media who supported the event with 100% and of course Silja Line for letting this thing happen.

Anyway, SOLID GROUND, FRIENDSHIP TIME and ASOKA will perform on the Rock at Sea cruise the 10th of March. For those of you who wants tickets can I tell that if you are contacting email@example.com and tell her that you are a MELLOTRONEN FRIEND then you can easily get a ticket for 50 SEK (instead of 565 SEK which it costs for other passangers)
On the boat will at least 15 other bands perform. One of them is BUDIGE which will be a highlight for me and for Anders Berge of Solid Ground!
NOVEMBER will take SWEDEN ROCK by STORM the 8th of June at 6:15PM.
The 4th of August will Morte Macabre perform at the KURI PROG Festival in Estonia. Kuri is an Island outside Tallinn. KURI means EVIL in the Estonian language. Best of all is that EMMA NORDENSTAM are included in the Morte Macabre line-up.
