This week our pals The Cynz from New Jersey are coming to Sweden. Fronted by bombshell Cyndi Dawson – spoken word and poetry rock and roll femme fatale with an amazing stage persona – they´re a rock and roll tsunami that recalls the CBGB´s days and artists like Patti Smith and Jim Carroll. And now they´re playing with us in Eskilstuna, Stockholm and Uppsala. Can´t wait!

“Sorry it took so long, but we were just tuning.” Just like everybody else we were devastated to hear the news about Lou Reed´s passing. And now this quote from his Live Take No Prisoners album comes to mind. So sorry for having neglected this page for a while. But we´ve been busy tuning.

That´s what you´re here for

February 26th, 2013

Jörgen Lindström, Anders Sahlin, Bengt Alm, Chris Cacavas, Olov Öqvist and Hawk.

Just got the news that Steve Wynn persuaded Chris Cacavas to play his Green on Red classic That´s what you here for (which he wrote and then sang on the Gravity Talks album) the other night on their joint European tour. Apparently he (Chris) got worried that he wouldn´t remember the words to it. Maybe that´s why him and Steve Wynn ran such a slow (but very nice) version of it. Us Plastic Pals, we take no prisoners.
