Album Notes
Katzen Kapell is nothing but one of Sweden's most original and unusual bands.
When the musicians come together they create a sound that transports the listeners to unimaginable musical realms. Their original compositions evoke suburbia melancholy, oriental romance and the Rounding of the Belly in a tango. Every instrument and sound that you could never imagine in combination, comes alive when the band plays their first notes and instills a dual sense of comedy and boldness.

The unusual combination of instruments certainly creates a truly original sound. Catharina Backman Accordion and vocals, Eva Lindal violin, Magnus Andersson organ, wurlitzer and vocals Kjell Nordeson marimba and vibraphone, Lasse Lundbom drums and percussion, Gustaf Hielm bass,(on this record Peter Adolfsson plays bass).

Katzen Kapell have toured in Sweden and given concerts in The Netherlands, Belgium and the US. They have also performed with vaudeville artists and in theatres in Stockholm and released four CD's "Katzen Kapell" 1994 and "Alla hatar min man" 1998 (out of print,sorry!) and two recent releases from Ragadang Records: "Si Tu Veux" (2007) and "Maximalism" (2008).

About the CD "Katzen Kapell" 1994:

"Admirable, colourful!" Le monde de la musique

"One of Sweden's best bands" Camilla Lundberg, (Expressen)

"The melodies come to rest on tantalizing notes, which other styles of music regard as trivial. Just beneath or above the firm keynote where everyone expects a familiar sound but what they actually get is an almost-note, a long kiss which brushes the lips, a strong stimulus and a quite sorrow. The music of Katzen Kapell appears to be invented the moment it is played compared to many other music that is mature but soon antiquated". Ingmar Glanzelius, (Dagens Nyheter).

"The voice sounds of Swedish innocence at the same time as the accordion bites into the rhythms of authentic Argentinean Tango....Katzen Kapell offer a musical treat of high class.
Eva Clementi, (Dagens Nyheter).



to write a review


I didn't know that tango could be so capriciously seducefull - but then again i guess that this is not our average Friday night Ballroom-danceband ..... unfortunally . Humor does still belong in music .


Katzen Kapell
Uno de los mejores discos que he escuchado en los últimos años.
La fusión de folk, jazz, tango, ..., es casi perfecta, en temas maravillosos excepcionalmente interpretados.


Things of of Lounge Lizards, Frank Zappa,
I discover this CD on cdbaby. What a great music!
I can hear all the themes i love.
Things of of Lounge Lizards, Frank Zappa, even Mr Bungle Stories...
Could it be a new concept for progressive Bjork?
Very original music on classical basis, perfect played!
A must have, i'm convinced.
