Happiest Place / Sweden / 2021
Everyone who reads this most likely have the same reason to do this & know what it’s all about. As said in previous sales pitches - Gothenburg is the centre of the universe. It’s a bold statement, but it’s possible to make it fairly un-challenged because everyone more or less knows that it’s true. There are a few essentials pieces who give these words credibility - but no one ave proven to be more bearing, more of an essential cornerstone than Neutral.
Dan Johansson & Sofie Herner are known under variety of different names. Be it Herner’s Leda or Johansson’s Sewer Election - or in groups such as Amateur Hour, Enhet För Fri Musik, Heinz Hopf or whatever - it’s nonetheless the foundation on which we stand, which we have their efforts to thank. This was the feeling I had when, as a weeks fresh 18 year old entering the door of an industrial estate in my hometown to experience my first Neutral show in 2016. An earth moving & essential experience for me, in many ways.
Originally released in 2017 on cassette in 50 units total - now you can enjoy the live experience of Neutral in high-end lo-def, which holds up perfectly after being remastered for vinyl from the original tape.
300 copies on 180g vinyl with a retrospective insert (containing comments & recollections from Sofie, the promoter Johan Sahlin & Mattias, yours truly) & images, in equal low-def!.
