INTERVIEW: Takida (Sweden)

Takida are one of Sweden’s most popular rock bands going and having just recently finished their ‘A Perfect World’ UK and Europe tour in support of their latest album I caught up with guitarist Tomas Wallin to discuss this, their origins and what lies ahead in the future for the band and much more…

Can you tell us about your formation back in 1999?

Robert gave me (Tomas) a phone call and asked me if I wanted to join his band. We were a three-piece back then. We wrote our own songs from day one and we worked really hard to get our demos out. There have been a few members in the band but me and Rob are the only original ones left.

What made you decide on the name Takida and is true that this is taken from a character in a Japanese anime series called Nagareboshi Gin (It’s called Silver fang in Sweden)?

Yes, that’s true. Robert was, and still is, a very devoted Silver Fang fan. When we had to have a name for the band to put on the cover of our first demo (old), he suggested Gohei Takida. We shortened it down to Takida and that was it.

STEARICA CELEBRATE 20TH ANNIVERSARY WITH NEW 20 MINUTE AND 20 SECONDS LONG TRACK ‘20YRS’


STEARICA_2017_1 medium.jpg

This year marks the 20th anniversary since Turin-based instrumental trio STEARICA began to play together. Yes, they met as kids in school! Their many years of friendship and musical collaboration have allowed them to develop their almost-telepathic tightness onstage, in which they seem to play as one three-headed beast.

 

 

To mark the occasion, they have undertaken a single-track musical odyssey of 20 minutes and 20 seconds duration. It encapsulates the passion of 20 years of playing together and their shared love of combining primordial rhythms and infectious melodies with avant-garde stylings.

 

 Produced by band member Francesco Carlucci, 20YRS features guest appearances by Eros Giuggia on alto and soprano sax and Franz Goria from Fluxus on vocals.
