These guys have really captured me just recently. Their eclectic brand of ludicrous jazz rock is just... well it's everything I love all rolled into one easy sound! I'm listening to their reunion album "Kaka" for the first time as I'm writing this and the narration is inspired - very Stanshall-esque. As for the music itself... sublime! These chaps are complex yet listenable, loose but structured and are having far too much fun to be bothered with pretension. I think they're destined to become firm and longstanding favourites of mine.

Snorungarnas Symfoni, so I have nothing more to
say!

Ta.

I just don't know why it's taken me so long to discover them. It really does feel as if ever there was a band created JUST for me then Samla Mammas Manna would be that band.

He is! Saw TFK live a couple of years ago and he did a cracking percussion solo in the middle of Devil's Playground. Cracking good stuff!

Btw - is that DVD any good?

Im ordering Cos(Belgium) first album, I have never
heard before. Will give you a yeah or nay when I give
it a spin.
Sure you are already familar with Herbie Hancock's
Headhunter already, funky and smart!
Also you may find interest in Axiom Funks
Funkcronomicon(Parliment, Funkadelics, Bill
Laswell, Sly Stone, Buckethead, etc).

And of course you are famiar with Picchio dal Pozzos
debut already.

Might I also suggest Grovjobb - Vaternas fest for
some real Swedish prog around the turn of the
century!

YoU dda manNN!

Are you joking? It is amazing. The DVD was shot in Sweden in a theater with only a small audience. It's like a studio recording, with a stellar sound quality. They play only epics and long songs: Truth will Set You Free, Garden Of Dreams, Stardust, Silent Inferno, Humanizzimo, Circus Brimstone.

Fantastic!! I never cared for TFK's poppier stuff - it's only the epics I listen to their albums for. Wow... sounds like I may have to invest in this DVD. After I've got that Magma trilogy one.

One of my favorite bands from Sweden! Måltid and Klossa Knapitatet are both excellent albums, I just love their totally absurd vocals

Have you heard Kaka? I'd say it's just as good as Måltid and perhaps even better than Klossa Knapitatet!

I much prefer their debut over 'Klossa Knapitatet', but then those are the
only SMM albums I have.

A decent band one couldn't call unoriginal!

A fine band, capable of the most intricate and delicately wrought prog yet they never take themselves too seriously. They have toured with the mighty Yoshida Tatsuya of Ruins on drums, which must have been a combination to make your fillings rattle. The Von Zamla albums are pretty good too, lots of whimsical humour and virtuosic playing.
