Now, to the pleasure of your eyes and ears only, the Throw Stones release concert is fully released as one big long fat playlist on YouTube!!

It was a magical show, and it felt really special to get to share the music on one of my all-time favorite stages.

Huge huge massive big very large thanks to Sun Mi Hong, Guy Tristan Salamon, Fuensanta ML, José Soares, Alistair Payne, Youngwoo Lee and Giuseppe Campisi who made the music come alive. And Attie Bauw made the music come alive on the CD. Johan Olsson helped me publish it on Loumi Records.

Thanks Frank van Berkel and Bimhuis for helping our music reach the ears of the pipo. Couldn't have done this all alone.
Long texts doesn't fit either FB algorhythms or my short attention span so let's leave it here. Most of all, thank YOU and YOU and YOU for listening and buying albums. That matters the most to my aging freezy nordic heart.

Big love from corona-capital of the world Sweden ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Heleen Berkhof and TRPTK made this cover art and it’s very a flattering portrait. The album is only slightly outdated. Is 2020 too much for you? For those nostalgic 2019 vibes, it’s on Spotify and for sale on TRPTK.com ❤️
