The Movements biography
Based in Stockholm, Sweden THE MOVEMENTS was formed in 2001, initially influenced by and exploring musical terrotories similar to the garage rock of the 60's. Pretty soon their compositions took on elements from other stylistic expressions as well; and tinges from spacerock, psychedelia, punk and pop music started finding it's way into their sound.

Originally a five-piece consisting of David Henriksson (vocals), Thomas Sundberg (drums), Daniel Eriksson (bass), Christian Johansson (guitars) and Gustaf Gimstedt (keyboards), the band expanded to a six-piece in 2002 with the addition of Kalle Kulenovic (guitars); and this line-up started getting a lot of attention in their hometown Göteborg, and became known as a wild live act.

Kulenovic left the band in 2003 though, and The Movements chose to continue on with 5 members.

In 2004 they released their first material with the 6-track EP Drag Me Up through German label Lonestar Records. Besides finally having a commercial product available this production helped open up the European concert market for the band; and to this day Europe in general and Germany in particular is frequently visited by The Movements when on tour.

In 2006 their first full length album Oats of Grain was released on Alleycat Records, and in 2008 the single The Battle Of Being In Love was issued through Parkeringshuset Records.

2008 was an important year for the band due to other events though, as bassist Eriksson decided to leave. His replacement came in the shape of one Daniel Pettersson.

2009 has been a busy year for the now slightly revamped band. At first the album The World, The Flesh and the Devil appeared in the spring, courtesy of Alleycat Records. And in the summer of 2009 their second full length album of the year was issued on German label Sulatron Records: For Sardines Space Is No Problem.

This latter production, honouring Swedish astronaut Chrsiter Fuglesang, featured a number of local musicians in a one-off expanded line-up.

Drag Me Up
The Movements Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by AtomicCrimsonRush
Special Collaborator Symphonic Team

2 stars OK, here we go.

Something different and not very prog like, this is a psych journey throw back to the 70s sound of The Sonics or 13th Floor Elevators. Each song is a short burst of psychedelia, trippy and loud with blasts of organ and spacey guitars. Look for no solos or virtuoso playing, these guys just crash out one tune after another. They get in, deliver and get out, without fanfare or admirable guitar playing. The sound is under produced, pitchy and rather like a garage band. The songs are raucous and feature lashings of ultra violent organ and jangly aggressive guitars.

Drag Me Up is about teenage rage with distasteful angry vocals and sonic amp effects. The drums bash constantly and there is hardly any bass, it is mixed down. The guitars are boisterous and unfriendly.

It's Time To Go is another short sharp shock of maxed up psych. The party surf music continues on I Feel Groovy. Cool guitars are mixed with ground down organ and a vocal stating "my head is jumping and my heart is pumping fast".

The shrilly sound continues on Give You Head with obscene lyrics "I'm Gonna Make you scream!" and you can guess the rest. They won't win any awards for lyrics. It is raw and aggressive on CCTV and the riff is like 'GLORIA' or The Kinks or Them for that matter.

So that's the EP. Raw and short and not very sweet. 2 stars for the sheer fun!

For Sardines Space Is No Problem
The Movements Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator PSIKE Team & Band Submissions

4 stars Here we have another interesting release offered by the Austrian Sulatron Records label. THE MOVEMENTS are from Sweden, formerly known for making garage rock music with a retro touch. They established their reputation by extensive tours through Europe delivering kick-assing live performances. This album is differing though because a kind of space prog production mixed up with krautrock and folk elements. The concept is made around the story of Christer Fuglesang, the only Swedish (and even nordic) astronaut so far. The album title 'For Sardines Space is No Problem' is said to be the motto of his astronaut class at NASA.

After having trained since 1992 for his voyage he was part of a Space Shuttle Discovery crew in the end starting off at 10th December 2006. This awakened some interest in space travel in his native country of course and inspired the band to record a tribute album. As for the genuine chronological order it all begins with A Birth Under The Northern Sky accentuated by a crying baby - a folk tinged theme played by organ, deep percussion, clarinette, violin - all the instruments are serving a magical solemn mood.

Mother, Some Day I´m Going To Be An Astronaut - this song shows a young boy expressing his wishes with confidence at first. And the band interprets it with heavy psych rock - even getting close to punk. Soaring wah wah guitars and lush spacey synthesizer elements all over - later gliding into a hallucinogenic section initiated by weird vocal contributions. Growing up our young astronaut then continues In The Footsteps Of Gagarin - the famous russian cosmonaut who was the first person in space. An excellent dramatic organ work is striking here - the song has much of fellow countryman Bo Hansson as for my opinion - well done!

I assume the psychedelia/folk coloured Trapped On Earth is expressing the long waiting period for an astronaut until it's ready at last - where the dark mooded slowtempo Go Now My Friend (Out Into Space) perfectly reflects the last exciting (certainly frightening) moments before the lift-off initiates. Fuglesang had two space walks over the course of the mission - That Is The Wrong Bolt Christer, Standby is provided with a looping gliding behaviour here and some radiotelephony dialogues - probably even original recordings from the flight.

Worked out with obvious krautrock leanings and considering the flute Ministers Of Space reminds me of Kraftwerk's hit 'Ruck-Zuck' a little bit. Nice one anyhow. 'I've seen the earth, I've seen the stars, but I haven't found my home' - at the end we are left in suspense. Infinite space meets nordic melancholy. The last one The Grasp Of The Kings' Hand Is Not Enough is a psych folk song where at least the musical aspect is expressing a rather happy optimistic mood.

Surprise - surprise - THE MOVEMENTS are almost unrecognizable on this album - not only because they invited several friends with a quite unusual instrumentation. As for that a lot of details are to discover - in most cases not until after several rehearsals. A diversified effort with a well thought-out and implemented concept - excellent musicianship on top of it. Really enjoyable.

P.S. important sidenote: Fuglesang is crew member of Space Shuttle flight STS-128 - the lift-off is announced for the 29th August 2009! The band had asked him to participate in the recordings but he couldn't find the time for that. So at least he promised to take this tunes with him - covered on his i-pod.

Drag Me Up
The Movements Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator PSIKE Team & Band Submissions

2 stars The first sign of life from this band around singer David Henriksson in 2004. Five musicians from Sweden which are deep in 60s garage rock here. 'Drag Me Up' is an EP consisting of six short songs with a total length of less than 20 minutes. This is technically quite good but not a challenge for a prog music fan de facto.

The title song offers a nice melodic refrain - some little psych flowers are growing here and there. Immediately a feeling comes up like being placed back to my youth. The wild Time to Go gets near to punk rather - Henriksson screams his head off.

The band offers straightforward heavy rock (n' roll) songs spiked with vintage organ contributions. Later THE MOVEMENTS crew will expand the stylistical bandwith - as for this one it's not more than a collectors/fans item though.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
