Rod performed a sort of rivival concert at Loppen this cold
night close to X-mas eve. As might be expected the majority
of the audience was middleaged former hippies like myself!
But I was pleased to see quite a lot of younger persons also
- people who wasn't even born, when I attended my first Alrune
Time stood still at Loppen when the band of grey old men performed
a vital 8-song set from our past youth. For me it was exactly
like being at one of Alrune Rod's gigs in the early 1970's.
Even the psycodelic spotlights was the same. A nightmare for
a photographer working without flash, but very impressive.
But what a delight to listen to this legendary Danish rock
band playing so well after all these years. You should have
the buttom of this side, my live shots of Alrune Rod from
the 70's can be viewed).

have seen Danish flower-power rock band, Alrune Rod,
perform many times in the early 1970's. First time I photographed
them was at HIP's "beat feast" at Rebæk Søpark
Second time I brought my camera with me was at the same lake site,
but three years later.
