Grattis Sverige till 3 - 1 segern – Schlatan!

Norska gruppen SOT hjälper oss att i dag hylla fotbollslandslagets 3-1 seger mot Kroatien med låten Schlatan, som är första spår på deras debut-cd Kind Of Saltz från 2011. En platta som enligt gruppen tillkom på endast tre dagar!

SOT är en Zappa - Samla dyrkande ensemble som består av musiker från jazz, metall och pop-scenen i Oslo. Man jobbar i samma anda som svenska Nevärlläjf och Diablo Swing Orchestra.  Det vill säga ett hejdlöst och uppskruvat jazz-rock- kabarémusik-sväng på väg åt alla håll samtidigt. Miljarder idéer, taktbyten och teman följer i en strid ström och högt tempo. kind_of_saltz-18378297-frntl

Men SOT bjuder också på lugna och svävande partier  här och där. 

Om man snabbt vill skaffa sig en bild av vad det är gruppen levererar skall man lyssna på det tuba-kompade gitarrsolot i just låten Schlatan. Jo, tuba ingår i sättningen och den spelar en framträdande roll.

Need I say more?

Rekommenderas varmt!

Manskap:
Skjalg Reithaug - guitar

Här berättar gitarristen Skjalg Reithaug om bandets tillkomst:

6925The band SOT first started back in 1992 when all three of us went to
music high-school together. We where friends and enjoyed the same internal humor and decided to start this band. We never thought much about how this constellation of instruments are odd, it just happened
to be the instruments we played.

As we started to write for SOT we realized this was something original
and unique. We released a demo and had lots of fun with the music.
When high-school was over we all was busy developing ourselves in
different directions musically and geographically but we had the
occasionally SOT gig every now and then at obscure clubs and
birthdays.

Autumn 2009 I had some time off and Lars Andreas, the tuba player was
on a solo tour with lots of spare time. We then began to write sketches of new SOT tunes and collaborated trough the internet. The result was so amazing for us that we knew we had to do something with this. Leading to the creation of the "Kind of Saltz" album.

The groundwork on the album was done in three intensive days. Hard
work from early morning to long past midnight, then some beers and the
same procedure again. Lars Andreas and me then did some recording at home before we returned to the studio for three days of mixing. We are
extremely pleased by the end result. I love how every song has its own
mood, and the whole colorful, imaginative experience there is
listening to the whole album through.

2012 is going to be an exiting year for SOT! We have a distribution
deal for our album to all stores in Norway an abroad, we´ll go on a
two week tout in Sør-Trøndelag, Norway, we are playing in Krakow,
Poland on the Krakow Percussion festival, and we are going to start
the recording of our next album in January. All the tunes are ready so
I´m very exited to see/Listen? how this turns out!
