So, the album's been out for a while. Have you listened to it yet? Any thoughts? Any favourites?

I'm personally thrilled with it - a lot of the songs are more 'epic' and emotional than the ones on Tillbaka till samtiden, and the band's sound has really grown more layered/complex while still remaining catchy and powerful. I especially love the Hjärta, Sjukhus, and Vals För Satan bit of the album.

I asked vertyshka from vertycons to make icons from "Generation Ex"! I got permission to share if anyone is interested. :)

Please credit. :)

"Box 1991-2008" collection [22 Sep 2008|04:29pm]

Any thoughts on the new teaser image on the official site? I know that official news will probably appear in a few days' time, but it's fun to speculate. :D Going by the '1991' date, I'm hoping that they'll have Jones & Giftet and Havsänglar tracks... and then all the b-sides that haven't been collected in B-sidor 95-00, maybe? And of course things like Nålens öga...

Helsingborg [03 Jul 2008|12:09am]


Finns det nån som ska gå på konserten i Helsingborg? Funderar på att åka, men det är lite tråkigt att alltid åka ensam, så jag tänkte försöka hitta andra fans som ska dit. Själv är jag dansk och bor i Helsingör. Men om det finns nån därute... :)

Anyone going to the summer tour? [16 May 2008|10:24am]


I'm an Australian girl *thinking* about coming over to Sweden to see kent in July.

I'd be going to the shows in Helsingborg and Gbg and I'm looking for other fans living in these cities (and presumably going to these shows) who I could possibly stay a night or two with on your couch or floor.

I flew over from Australia once before to see kent at Hultsfred two years ago -- maybe you're even one of the people I met then? :)

Och nej, jag kan inte svenska, men: jeg har studert norsk i noen år (og bodde der ett år òg,) og så er svensken min ikke /helt/ dårlig...jeg kan nok forstå kent tekster! :)

If you think you might like a foreign guest and obsessive fan briefly in your home this summer, I'd love it if you left a comment and maybe we could email a bit and get to know one another.

Tack så mycket!!

Pics from Vaasa 01/02/08 [17 Feb 2008|11:41pm]

[ mood | drained ]

I posted these back at kent.nu, but maybe I could share these in here too. Just to warn you, I'm overly obsessed with Martin, there's a lot of pics of him. People don't take photos of him enough for my taste so when I finally got my Nikon with me I made sure I have something to drool at. Okay, enough with this blabbering. We all love Kent and so on. Some more than others ;) Enjoy.

tusen tack vi äslkar ni! [05 Feb 2008|01:05pm]

I finally saw them! Last night was incredible even though there were many old, drunk, idiot poeple from Oulu, yeah the gig was here so what else could you expect? well I knew poeple from Oulu could be annoying but the crowd last night, most terrible ever. There were many rude people, stepping over you, stepping on your feet, crusing in finnish (sayin how swedes suck and so no) seriously, if you cannot stand swedish nor swedes, why the hell would you like to come watch a swedish band and then expect Jocke to talk in english or finnish? fucking idiots! They are from Sweden we were in Finland and last time I checked our country was fucking bilingual which means you can use Swedish or Finnish here. Other than some stupid poeple, the gig was amazing. It was everything I ever thought it would be and even better. The guys were energic, happy, great. Jocke kept telling jokes, laughing and at the end of the gig he threw his writs-band to this fan who asked to have it...What else can I say..I laughed my heart out, jumped, cheered. Took pictures and 13 videos, shame I didn't get to meet them, I don't think anyone did, they just disapepared lol.But they did come back 2 times, after the first comeback like half of the crowd went away cause they thought they quit and back they came hahhaah <3 and the best thing was, they sang both Socker and 747!!!! Gaah *dies*

var så god och följa migCollapse )

Tourdates for Summer 2008? [23 Dec 2007|02:44pm]

Hey, I'm in the United States but I'm going abroad to Europe for the summer for college. I am desperate to go see Kent live! I've been a fan for over five years now and I cry inside at the fact they never come to North America. So, I was curious if anyone had any information on tourdates that may show up during the May or June months? I know they'll be in Norway in July, but I leave June 20th.. Any information about other shows would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks! :D
