Artist: John Henriksson
Title: Thunderclown

2011 collaboration between the Swedish and Scottish artists. When Stockholm vinyl charmer John Henriksson heard the crackly, croony 'Charm Song' from the 2010 Momus album Hypnoprism he recognized a kindred spirit, for the Swede and the Scot both value intimate, lucid and serenely sexy tones. The collaboration began with John sampling obscure vinyl 45s from his collection then gathering Swedish and French musician friends to add live sax, organ, celesta, lapsteel, marimba and vibraphonette, breathing new life into these museum pieces. The compositions were then sent to Momus, who altered pitch, key and structure and crooned new songs over them.
