TRIBUTE TO THE SPOTNICKS - LIVE - IMPORT - CD
Tribute To The Spotnicks members who have been in the band since 2008, are Kent Brännlund (guitar), Göran Sanfridsson (bass) and Stephan Möller (drums). These three guys decided to carry on by keeping the spirit and the music of the SPOTNICKS alive, but not by covering and copying the music. They want to pay tribute because there is only one Bo Winberg and one Bob Lander for them who cannot be copied. Fourth member of the band, playing lead guitar, will be Ove Lindell.
Their well-received debut-concert took place on 30th March 2019 too – right after the SPOTNICKS’ final concert. They will perform “live” on stage as well as on CDs. And now let’s take a closer look at these four guys:
STEPHAN MÖLLER (just 69 years young) played drums since the late 50s in many Swedish bands and also for many musicians. He has been a teacher for forty years now and, from 1978 on, played with the SPOTNICKS from time to time, on stage as well as in the studio. He officially belongs to the band since 2008.
KENT BRÄNNLUND, born 1961, started playing accordion and bass at the age of nine and guitar at fourteen. He worked with Swedish dance bands playing in pubs, at parties, weddings, at birthdays etc. Since 1988 he is an educated music teacher at Malmö Music Acadamy. He still works as teacher now. In 2008 he came to the SPOTNICKS, recommended by Stephan Möller
GÖRAN SANFRIDSSON, also born 1961, also played in many Swedish bands. He is an educated musician (playing cello, double bass, saxophone, accordeon, mandolin, baroque flute, steel guitar, banjo, guitar) and worked as studio musician at the Swedish TV for many years. He is a music teacher since 1982 and came, also recommended by Stephan Möller, to the SPOTNICKS in 2008.
OVE LINDELL, born 1956, was guitarist and singer with the SPOTNICKS from 1978 to 1982 and from 1984 to 1992. Then he was the lead guitarist in the band PAPA’O – also a band of former Spotnicks-musicians – from 1992 to 1998.
Fortunately their debut concert was professionally recorded and a selection of seven songs from that concert make up this debut-CD, which is a limited edition.
