7. M. Hederos & M. Hellberg – “Been Smoking Too Long”
from: M. Hederos M. Hellberg / Gravitation Recordings / 2003
[This piano and vocal duo was born on New Years Day 2001. They both used to play in a band called Nyphet Noodlers and they were supposed to have a reunion in a studio but the others didn’t show up. To pass time while waiting for the others, they played some songs they loved. The engineer pressed the record button and the result was a record with interpretations of rock classics that stunned the audience. It is not often a cover version will give an old song such a new meaning, but with Martin Hederos sensitive and fondling hands over the keyboard and Mattias husky voice they create a sense of melancholy gospel and soul. They recorded a second album “Together in the darkness” and by then they had developed their own songwriting that well holds the standard. The recording is made in Silence Studio with Micke Herrström as producer. The recordings started of course on a New Years Day after a great party the night before together with friends and beloved. They played all over Scandinavia, Germany and France, went on tour with Ryan Adams and was support for Van Morrison. They were so popular they had to quit in 2002/2003 to have time for their ordinary lives! Martin Hederos is a member of The Soundtrack Of Our Lives and Tonbruket. Mattias have been playing guitar with The Hellacopters and Håkan Hellström and is a member of Nationalteatern.]
