Konsertrecension: Månskensbonden sings his ostrobothnian countryside great

It is in the ”Somran”, ostrobothnia, for the summers, as Markus Bergfors gets the strong feeling that the whole body starts to carve. Restrained and ticking on the disc, but here it builds up a roar, and the singer accentuates trumsignalerna with the arms and torso.

Just before he has been sitting at the piano and sung his translation of Bruce Springsteen's ”Factory”, I think he calls it ”Fabrikin”, and now it is that he unfolds into a Swedish-speaking finn glesbygdsrockare of the corresponding format. Or at least a källarversion of Håkan Hellström or Moneybrother.

There is an immensity in the shoulder, despite the fact that everything is so small. Perhaps because there is so much in the small utsnitten of life as he sings.

he overturned the microphone that goes into the bass drum, and falling over again when he tries to put it back without losing momentum in the music, which provides a heartbreaking illustration of the epic rockmusikens conditions in tiny clubs. But the gang in the back of the bar is silenced, in fact everything since, and in the stripped-down encore of ”Our wasteland” in just two without bass and drums, it is actually completely silent.

He calls himself Månskensbonden for all those who are trying to keep life in the countryside in the evenings and nights, while they have a day job in the city earning a living. A name brand, but rock ’n’ roll connotations, but it opens up a long series of depictions of a very special part of the world, where the house of prayer and a straight edge-hardcore can fight for the young souls and the moped is called the mopon.

born in the ostrobothnian Kvevlax a generation later, though with less of the rich minesweeper and a stronger gravity. Not least in the singelsången ”Stormin”, about how the civil war still living in the people, with clear memories of who was on which side and who was executed. That evening, gästad of the same Iiris search results with the given who sang the duet on the album, and in all idleness a very moment one would wish that many more could experience.

in Addition, yet a example of that something big is growing in the Swedish speaking Ostrobothnia, where Månskensbonden obviously set in the same point as Vasas Flora and Fauna, Rickard Eklund, and just Iiris search results with the given. Was for different, but equally entrenched in their ways to tell, in their own language.
