FRAGEBOGEN: Kristoffer Hedberg (Easy October) [English version]

„Fragebogen“ is a standard interview with 15 questions around music plus a special task. This time it’s Kristoffer Hedberg, singer of the swedish band Easy October, who answers them.

*** Hier geht es zur deutschen Version des Fragebogens ***

First cd: The first CD that I bought for my own money was The Offspring’s album „Ixnay on the Hombre“.

First concert: Can’t really remember but I guess some blues concert together with my father.

First childhood memory related to music: My sister took piano lessons but I learned how to play „Love Me Tender“ before she did.

Favourite song at the moment: „If You Needed Me“ by Townes Van Zandt

A rather embarrassing song you like: „No One“ by Alicia Keys

Favourite song among your own: Usually the latest song I’ve written and at the moment that would be a song called ”Shake, Rattle and Cry” (will come on my next album). Otherwise I must say ”Rocket Man”. A song that was the ignition to the start of Easy October.

Favourite songlyrics: ”Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free…” from „Mr. Tambourine Man“ by Bob Dylan

Best concert: Damien Jurado at Pustervik in Gothenburg last year.

Worst concert: Any cover band at any bar.

Best concert among your own: Orange Blossom Festival 2015

Vinyl, cd or mp3? Vinyl.

Download or stream? Doesn’t really matter.

Clubconcert or festival? Clubconcert. Everytime!

Three songs that really have to be on your mixtape: ”A New England” by Billy Bragg, ”It Makes No Difference” by The Band and ”A Case of You” by Joni Mitchell.

An album you would NOT take with you to a lonely island: Anything by Avicii

Picture: „Probably one of the most important albums for me.“
