Trad Gras och Stenar biography
TRÄD, GRÄS OCH STENAR evolved in 1969 from the bands PÄRSON SOUND (1967), INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER (1968) and HARVESTER (1969), which were all playing important role in the Swedish experimental rock scene. The first line-up of TRÄD, GRÄS OCH STENAR concisted from Bo Anders PERSSON (gtr, voc), Arne ERICSSON (kb), Torbjörn ABELLI (bs) and Thomas GARTZ (dr, voc).
The group had concerts in small Swedish towns with loud voice and psychedelic visual shows, focusing on improvisational, minimalist and trance-oriented performances, which soon granted them a cult status. Their music resembles classic krautrock, like the material of German band AMON DÜÜL. At year 1970 the band was participating in the legendary open-air festival Gärdesfesterna, which was documented on the double LP "Festen pä Gärdet" (Silence SRS 4603). The band stopped being active after year 1972, but they had several re-unions, and from 1995 they again started to tour in Scandinavia, continental Europe and also at United States. In year 2009 they released a new album "Homeless Cats" with Bo Anders PERSSON (gtr, voc), Jakob SJÖHOLM (gtr, voc), Torbjörn ABELLI (bs, voc) and Thomas Mera GARTZ (dr, voc). After album release both Torbjörn ABELLI and Thomas Mera GARTZ sadly passed away, but the band has continued to give concerts with Sigge KRANTZ and Reine FISKE.

Review by DrömmarenAdrian

2 stars This record is underrated! I am saying that and afterwards giving it two stars. I really don't think it is so bad you probably think it is. With one star I mean that the music totally lacks good intentions. That is almost true here ? but just almost.

Träd, gräs och stenar's first record with this new name from 1970 features Bo Anders Persson (guitar, violin, flute, song), Arne Eriksson (piano, cello, flute), Torbjörn Abelli (bass, harp and flute) and Thomas Mera Gartz (drums, harp, flute and vocals) and contains six(or seven) songs. This music is heavy and I can recommend two of the songs. First "All along the watchtower"(6/10), a Bob Dylan cover which perfectly shows us how Träd, gräs och stenar want to play rock music. Thay have a groovy sound which you can drown in or take drugs to (perhaps they did). The other song worth listening to is "Sanningens silverflod" (Truth's silver river") (7/10) which is beautiful and has caught the nature, a spring in the forest and some singing elves. This song ends up in a little political but bad sung bit "Riksdagsman" (Swedish MP) (4/10) about the hypocrites who rule our country. Two more songs won't give you headache: the cover "I can't get no satisfaction" (4/10) which is much too long and bland and "Svarta pärla" (4/10) which could have been made much better. It has some good ingredients such as a jew's harp, a melancholic folky feeling and a nice and mystic text (here bad sung). Two tracks are awful: "Tegenborgsvalsen" (2/10) and "All makt åt folket" (0/10). The first sounds like a hooked up vinyl record and the second one is just noise from "lergökar" (Swedish very simple ocarinas).

As a conclusion I would say this isn't rubbish, but it isn't good. There are som interesting track you should listen to but just listen to the rest if you are insterested in how bad music can be if you don't try to sound well. Definitely something for you interested in the Swedish "progg" movement or perhaps if you like Krautrock, I don't.......

Review by DrömmarenAdrian

2 stars The Swedish "progg" movement contained both prog rock bands and political rock bands and it was a political left wing movement that was very big. Träd, gräs och stenar was a stripped and improvisation based band sprung from Harvester, International Harvester and Pärson Sound. They made two 70s studio records of whom I think this is the most interesting. I admit they were talanted and quite lonely with their sound and if you try them perhaps you'd like them. My listening to their music was interesting but I'm not very impressed.

If you'll find this record, listen to the first two songs ? they are good. "In kommer Gösta" was made famous of another swedish progg (and prog) band Philemon Arthur and the Dung but this version is heavier and better (3/5). "I ljuset av din dag" (3/5) is a hippy song with a nice mood and a melody but still their unpolished sound. I my opinion they should have been more pretentious. "Solen går upp, solen går ner" (0/5) is a totally meaningsless rubbish and "Våran vila" is perhaps political but it is hard to hear the lyrics(2/5).

If you liked the two first songs perhaps you can try "Rock för kropp och själ"(2/5) - the monster of this record. It is a minimalistic jam that runs for over twentytwo minutes. For me it is very monotonic but somewhere you can hear really good guitar being played. If you like minimalistic things or Krautrock this could be something for you. I'm more up to symphonic, folk and eclectic prog or political "progg". Träd, gräs och stenar intended to sound living and careless. Their message was: "everybody can play!". TGOS could play but ? they didn't. This was to carelessly build for me. Even if this record only could get two stars from me I think it is their perhaps best record ? better than their first and better than Harvester Hemåt.

1 stars The total submersion in marmalade seas

Now this has got to be one of the only times, where I've witnessed the sound production decrease with every release. The first couple of albums spawned by this act, though under a different moniker, were recorded in the 60s, so throwing stones at them for being muddy and fuzzed out during that time, is like accusing a fish for being wet. On this one they had morphed into a new name, which translates into Trees, Grass and Stones. They still sound like they're playing in a bog with home-made amplifiers made out of mosses and bark, and whilst that may be considered a trait if you were one of those up and coming young punk bands from the English suburbs towards the end of the 70s, the feel of this particular album makes this listener think of a doomed drug venture a la Hunter S. Thompson running wild in a Swedish field with a run down mic strapped to his forehead.

It's a a shame really, because during the first two cuts here we are treated to the charming Kraut sensibilities of this band with the somewhat distorted dragging chug rock wafting over you like a regular ghost of bearnaise sauce. The band wades through the open sound planes with a careless attachment to structures and beats, though still maintaining the proper up link to what essentially fuels this kind of music. So what does? Pure sense and feel for the given moment for lack of a better phrase really.

What bugs me about these two "compositions" is that they're not really theirs - even if they do their very best to add that special Swedish Krautrockabillyish delicate swampfolk thang to it. Personally I think it is rather unimaginative, which is a word I use sparingly around these psychedelic Scandinavians. The thing is, that throughout every single step of this band's natural progression, there's been a laissez faire - do whatever you feel like attitude prevailing - yet still firmly rooted in a way of thinking that inspires every other band member to pick up their feet and roll with it, give me some!!.... Satisfaction!!! As much as I try, I feel totally unmoved by this release, and that has (almost) nothing to do with the poor recording techniques wielded, but decisively more to do with the lack of inspiration and mind fuel. Take the Stones cover of Satisfaction for example: This has the feel of a teenage garage band playing at the local high school after one too many Bacardi freezers. Yes they're jamming - making up stuff as they go, - and as much as that is my thing (in fact I openly admit to being a sucker for music based around improvisations), - this effort just falls flat on its face like a dizzy Bambi on telescopic stilts. Bahh!!!

The only redeeming facet of this release, is the interplay happening between the drums, guitar and bass. These are old friends, and you can certainly pick up the odd traces of the band's infancy, and this listener does so with a big fat smirk on his face. Come to think of it, it is the only thing worthy of praise here really. Otherwise the badly produced whimpering pseudo English and Swedish vocal sections along with the feel of total mass retain syndrome in the upper regions of the binary brain functions - also known as brain melt in the studio caused by drunk like a skunk and tripped out squirrel like behaviour - all of these combined amounts to a complete clusterf*ck beyond expression.

I'm being a bit hard on these guys, but quite frankly I only do so, because I have come to expect so much more from a group that single-handedly gave birth to an otherwise completely monopolized German produce, which is the overpowering, earthshaking and shattering, jello-like, fire breathing and totally mind engulfing sonic mistress also known as Krautrock.

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

3 stars TRAD GRAS OCH STENAR evolved out of the band INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER, in fact all four members here were in that earlier band. These guys carry on the spirit of INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER who were very innovative, in fact i'd call them trail-blazers. They had a psycedelic style with lots of jamming. This particular album is posthumously released and is a live record from the very first Garten Festival held in June of 1970. This was the first so called alternative or underground music festival of it's kind held in Sweden and TRAD GRAS OCH STENAR were a big part of getting it organized which took over a year. All the bands that performed here were outside of the commercial music industry and they all played for free and helped in every way they could. The government back then was conservative and there were so many road-blocks in getting this approved that they finally decided to do it illegally. They advertised it heavily hoping that if many people showed up the police would let them carry on. Well even in setting things up the police were frequent visitors and many arguments resulted but in the end the concert went ahead in the pouring rain. The owners of the field decided to let the concert go ahead and the police were instructed to keep the hippies on the field and when it was over those involved with the concert were procecuted. TRAD GRAS OCH STENAR had the honour of performing first. This was all recorded by a man who was a friend of the band seated near the front of the stage. He used a tape recorder with a microphone. This was before the band had released any albums so this really is their first recording.

"Frihetsdans I D-Moll" is pretty much the band jamming repetively over and over. "Tegenborgsvalsen" is more of the same only the jam is much shorter. "Lifeforce #3" builds very slowly. Drums to the fore as it ends. "All Along The Watchtower" is a Bob Dylan track made famous by Hendrix. It took me quite a while to even know this was that song. Lazy guitar and vocals help out. "In Kommer Gosta" kicks in with vocals before a minute. Catchy stuff. "Satisfaction" is another cover this time of THE ROLLING STONES hit. It's okay.

Well it's in part because of the sound quality, although it's not bad. Maybe it's because it's live or maybe it's the material but this doesn't come close to being as good as INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER's debut. A good album though and maybe more important because of it's historical significance on Progressive music in Sweden.

2 stars More Trees Grass and Stones

The band Träd, Gräs Och Stenar (Trees, Grass and Stones) has existed since 1969, and even before that the principal members were together under other names. While they could hardly be accused of flooding the market (this is only their fourth studio album), the band has to be admired for their persistence and longevity. Released a mere seven years after the 2002 album "Ajn Schvajn Draj" this is widely regarded as the band's final album. While co-founder Thomas Tidholm is absent, the rest of the original line up is here, together with Jakob Sjöholm who has been in the band since 1971. Reine Fiske adds additional guitar on one track.

Bo Anders Persson provides vocals on the opening "Punkrocker", a song which is in so many ways the antithesis of punk. This brooding, riff laden dirge oozes atmosphere in a Neil Young sort of way. Indeed the song could have been lifted from Young's nod to punk "Hey hey my my" on "Rust never sleeps". Vocals are rare on the album though, Jakob Sjöholm's contribution on "Pondering wondering" being their only other appearance.

The rest of the tracks are guitar dominated instrumentals. The intrusive drumming on tracks such as "The Railway Engine of the People in Irresistible Motion" are symptomatic of Post rock, and while there are similarities with that style at times, the music is generally too dynamic to be labelled that way. That said, the band do include drone type effects through the multi-tracking of the guitars.

At times the performances are a bit too basic, the overall effect being of a bunch of guys bashing something out without too much concern for the quality. Sometimes though, the simplicity works, and the music becomes reasonably rewarding if seldom remarkable.

I notice that the band are listed here under the sub-genre Psychedelic/Space Rock. Being unfamiliar with their early work, I would not presume to comment on that allocation. There is though little of that style here, the music being closer to Krautrock, Post Rock or even avant-garde. As such, this is not an album for the masses, and should be approached with some caution.

Review by Frasse

3 stars Keeping up with their unpolished live-sounding aestethics, this is TRÄD, GRÄS OCH STENARs new and probably last album. Mainman Bo-Anders Persson has announced his retirement at an age of almost 80 years.

Mostly, this is remicient of their INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER days of minimalistic jamming but it's the more structured songs that shine here (even more so in the company of the noodle- tracks).

"Punkrocker" is a song by TEDDYBEARS originally released in 2000. It's already one of the most covered Swedish Rock Songs, TEDDYBEARS themselves having done two more versions.

"Summer Disco" is indeed a Disco instrumental but I was still surprised to hear it at a Stockholm nightclub.

"Wedding Reel" sounds more like another Swedish Prog group of the 70s, the newly resurrected KEBNEKAJSE.

"Pondering Wondering" is the only song with vocals (this time in Swedish) apart from "Punkrocker"

Of the jam-tracks, the mellow "The Most Beautiful Part of the Dream" and druggy "Unexpected Encounter in the Mushroom Forest" are the best.

Review by philippe

2 stars These are very obscure, archaic live sessions from this 70's psych rock collective. the sound recording is really poor, garage and amateurish (sometimes provoking an absolutely painful listening) but we have to try making abstraction of this and infiltrate the intimate compositions and improvisations delivered. The opening tune represents the highlight of the album with an epic stoned soundscape, starting as a CAN song with obsessive rhythms, then transformed into a dense, melancholic acid 'trip" with fuzzy guitar solos and attractive melodies. It's closed to weird krautrock jams without experimentations. After this deep spaced out free form composition the musical quality declines with absurd songs as "Dibio" (a such "ridiculous" humorous short composition for acoustic guitars and naive hyppie like vocals) or the grotesque folk- ish "munfiol". "Var vila" is not a more serious affair, including heavy guitar riffs with ultra sick voices but the melodies really rock and try with a certain success to catch the essence of freaked out psych rock classics. An explosion of sounds for the best and the worst.

Review by Evans

3 stars Well, i can't be too hard on it.

Psychedelic garage music with political interludes? If you have read my review of "Träd Gräs och Stenar"'s self-titled debut album you might know that i'm not a very big fan of the band. For 1970, it is not very original, The Velvet Underground were doing the very same thing, only better, on their "White Light/White Heat" album in 1968. Actually, that is a pretty good way to describe the music played by Träd, Gräs och Stenar during this period, the sound/noise ratio is very much the same as on "Sister Ray", and the length of the songs were usually about the same. The jam feeling is pretty similar to that album by the velvet underground, but they lacked the originality and pure force that The Velvet Underground had so much of. Plus, the songs presented here, while some of them do change a little during their running time, are very stretched without there being much to will them with.

The sound quality is atrocious as well, and while it is supposed to be a live album, don't expect an experience like Yessongs or Seconds Out, i think that at most, there must have been 15 people clapping for these guys.

This is heavily psychedelic, repetitious, and rather noisy, music, but since there is a time and a place for that as well, i will give it three stars. Plus, there is something charming about the way the band just moans "aaal aaalooong the waaatchtooweeer..." and make it actually sound like they are yawning.

Review by Evans

2 stars Now, this is a pretty stupid album..

No, really. Träd gräs och stenar is an album made by swedes who really thought that they were doing something cool. Definitely a terrible band in any way imaginable. No one really knew how to play an instrument, and no the songwriting is terrible throughout all of side two, which is the only part the band wrote themselves. Out of these 4 quite terrible compositions, "Sanningens silverflod" is the most interesting, being a not totally unenjoyable psychedelic track, but after that follows some of the most freaked out, in a bad way, music i have heard. It's not even particularly avant-garde, it's just silly, in a very pretentious way.

Side 1, however... is a little more interesting. It consists of two cover tracks, psyched out rather seriously, and extended as long as... well, as long as Bo Anders could hold his guitar without falling asleep, i guess. Now, don't expect anything revolutionary about these two tracks. They are just as lazily performed as the tracks on side two, but since the material from the start is a lot stronger, they can only really mess them up to a certain degree. To get an idea of what it sounds like, think about what Gong were trying to do on "The isle of everywhere", for example. Now, imagine it 10 times worse, without anybody being able to play guitar like Steve Hillage, and with the Riff from "Satisfaction" repeated over and over, only faster, for 12 minutes straight. And with terrible sound quality.

Personally, i quite like side one despite of the lack of variation, and when i'm all by myself, i like to do "the Hippie-dance" to All along the watchtower and just space out for a while.

Not the best there is, but if you're looking for something seriously psychedelic, then you might find something of interest in it after all. (But try the live album "Gärdet 12.6.1970" instead, if you can get your hands on it).

Review by Axel Dyberg

1 stars This review unlike my others will be short, because I have not many words to say about this terrible album.

Träd Gräs Och Stenar are a Swedish psychedelic rock band from the late sixties. I knew that this album did not have any ratings and decided that it would be a good thing to buy it and review. Well I regret paying 2 dollars for it in the bargain bin. This album is the epitome of terrible, not only due to the amazingly disgusting sound quality, but also due to the fact that the songs on the A-side are jams that not only utilize boring chord sequences (The Am-C-Bb-C chord pattern on All Along The Watchtower gets a bit boring after 4 minutes. Well it lasts 8 here!) and the songs on the B-side are studio jokes that go on forever without lasting more than 5-6 minutes tops.

'All Along The Watchtower' is the best song here, and would be the only reason to listen. But the crappy quality of the sound drags it down with the rest of the songs, and the microphone for the singer isn't adjusted right either. You can barely hear the vocals. Now, the song might had been good had it been 3-4 minutes in length. But it drags for 8 minutes with a 6 minute guitar solo that is so extremely boring you'll most likely find yourself skipping the track without hearing it fully once. I love long guitar soli (Willie The Pimp is 8 minute long and really stuns me) but this one is a major failure.

The same goes for the second song. And the B-side is more like a 15 minute joke than anything.

Overall, a really dissapointing album. I'm usually very generous when giving ratings, and often overrate a lot of albums, but this one is truly one of the worst albums I have ever heard. I do not recommend you to buy this, as it has nothing going for it. There is no progressive in this, and there's nothing spacey about it either. It's a garage-esque jam CD that never goes anywhere. Ugh.
