Bo Anders Persson

Love Is Here to Stay


CD version, housed in a digipack sleeve including a booklet with in-depth, informative liner-notes and pictures. Subtitled 'The Early Works by Bo Anders Persson 1965-1967"' these works by Bo Anders Persson presented on this record were written between 1965 and 1967, before he started the experimental rock band Pärson Sound. All but one track is previously-unreleased. What is the origin of this strange, un-place-able music? What is its place in history, in the unfolding of important conceptual ideas, turning musical modernism into something wider, more mysterious and blurred? From where comes the lightness of touch, and how does the transient nature of the sounds correspond to the sense of mourning hidden within the music? What makes the music so exciting and loaded is the feeling of change, both in the actual performances and in the atmosphere of the rooms where the pieces are played. The sounds move freely within the minimal, repetitive structures. There are spaces for breathing and dreaming, turning inside and outside, and a sense of being in between positions. Suddenly, the doors are wide open and radical experiments can take place.

"Before his stint as the guitarist of Parson Sound, Persson was an exuberant member of a local theater. He strung up tape recorders on wires, processed musicians and threw their own sounds back at them, prepared anything with strings on it, and talked endlessly with local composers like Folke Rabe or Jan Bark. These minimal compositions are more properly academic than his later stoner jams, but no less imaginative. Drone tones wobble tightly & expand your head slowly, as you might expect, but there's also moments of piano, flute, a female singer (who's admirably unoperatic)" Weirdo Records
