played his third job on the same day, 1. of May 2005, on this occation as a support
artist before Rød Mor. The only thing I knew about Kenneth
Thordal before attending this night's trible concert, was that Rune
Westberg had done the mixing of three of his songs on his most recent
album, Skåret Ud I Pap, released on 8. April 2005. And of
course that he had got rarely seen good reviews in the press. Enough for me to
buy his record, - I just hadn't had the opportunity for that yet.
I was supprised
to hear Kenneth's lyrics, - a very interesting mix of the style
practiced by other great Danish rock poets. The music is far from mainstream popmusic,
you have to listen to it several times, to get into Kenneth's universe
- a sign of deeper quality.
He gave a ten song set, nine of them from the new
album, and one song (Blæs os omkuld) from a single release
from April 2002.
I had a talk with Kenneth backstage after
the concert and he gave me a copy of his album (see at the bottom of this page).
I'm looking foreward to following the carrer of this unique artist.
The Set List:
03. Jorden går under i morgen
05. Læg dig op ad mig
06. Det er dig, der er stor
08. Op i røg
09. Blæs os omkuld
10. Toget til Island
