Bengt Berger – Kjell Westling: Live in Stockholm 77

1942 -? Bengt Berger & 1959 -2019 Kjell Westling - Roland Keijser

CE11 – Released on october 6, 2008

Bengt Berger and Kjell Westling did a live radio broadcast in 1977 and released it on vinyl. This is a cd rerelease. The music we played is improvised, restless and of very high density (many notes in short time).

Ett Minne för Livet (A Memory for Life) was a muscian’s collective in Stockholm during the seventies, part of the progressive music movement in Sweden. Iskra, Spjärnsvallet, Vargavinter, Archimedes Badkar, Bitter Funeral Beer Band and Bolon Bata were some of the bands taking part, giving concerts on their own and together. We even put out some LP:s under the “Ett Minne för Livet” label.

Bengt Berger and Kjell Westling were two of the central musicians during this time, playing in several of the groups. We did a live radio broadcast in 1977 and released it on our own label. Not exacly easy listening, but give it a try – you might like it.
