Mieszko tribute by Matte

Category: 100% Nasum
Posted: Wednesday, 17 January 2007 17:51

As most of you probably know, Mieszko ran a studio called Soundlab together with Matte from Millencolin. They started with a shitty 8-tracker and developed their skills and upgraded their equipment with time until they had a real studio with Steve Vai's (yes, THAT Steve Vai!) Pro-Tools system.

Well, obviously Soundlab is not a studio in the same active way it was today, it's more of Millencolin's headquarters and from time to time recordings are made.

Later this month Matte is releasing his soloproject/new band Franky Lee's debut album "Cutting Edge" on Burning Heart. The first singel/video "The world just stopped" is his tribute to Mieszko. I didn't realise this until I read the lyrics and got tears in my eyes.

I think it's safe to say that it wasn't just the former Nasum members who lost someone, a lot of friends in Örebro and elsewhere are missing Mieszko, and Matte who was such a close friend to him, may be missing him more than others. I remember having a phone call with Matte close after the Tsunami and he was a wreck not knowing what to do with the company and all the booked recordings and the bills and all that.

I'm glad that it all sorted itself out in the end and that Matte could make this album and get his feeling out of the system and write his "Mieszko lyrics".

I've known Matte for soon 20 years and he's always been a nice guy, from the days we used to skate together outside his house until these days when I always can rely on him when I need to borrow some mikes and shit for my recordings.

So this is the way that I honor you, Matte. Thanks for everything.

Here's the video for "The world just stopped". More info at http://frankylee.com

Another piece of Nasum disappeared

Category: 100% Nasum

Today I met up with Jon who came to get his Nasum bass amp. It was almost to the day two years since we last unloaded it in the rehearsal room for the last time.

And today it was brought out for the last time. The bass amp has been stored away lately so I haven't really had it in my sight during rehearsals, but in a little, little way I feel some sort of sadness that it disappeared. It's a little bit of Nasum going away from me.

I still have Mieszko's set up facing me each rehearsal (as it is in use) so his "Shift" sign is looking at me, and I have my "Shift" sign stuck on the bassdrum so there's a little piece of Nasum still left in my surroundings.

More merch or no more merch?

Category: 100% Nasum

Although I have said as replies to questions here and in emails that I won't print any more merch, I have come to question that decision. Perhaps I should do another round of shirts.

The biggest reason why I decided not to do more merch has been that I am very tired of having half my home as some sort of merch warehouse with boxes and boxes of t-shirts and hoods (they are the worst space consumers there is!). I am - or should I say I was - very tired of spending so much of my time packing things and going to the post office and all that stuff.

Also, it sort of felt like I was "milking" Nasum by continuing doing merch for such a long time. I mean - the band disbanded over 18 months ago.

Never the less, I can't ignore the vibe I get from people. You want more t-shirts, that's pretty obvious. So I am leaning towards doing some more, perhaps even a new design. I am sort of into the idea of doing a "Grind Finale" type of t-shirt in time for the 4LP release (which should be soonish), and if I'll do that - well, I should do something else.

Consider this a survey of some sort. Let me know in the comments which prints you like and I'll base the order on that. Not that any print made before the "Grind" design is not available and I am very reluctant towards hoods!
