In the spring of 2020, Fanfar! releases the debut album with Cantona Gut System. Robert Johnson and Johan Skugge opens your mind to dreams that your ears have never heard.
A few years ago, the legendary band Robert Johnson and Punchdrunks closed business with a worthy end, the masterpiece Morte di Seeburg. The obvious central figure Robert Johnson even went so far as to sell his guitars and intended to devote his free time to boxing and snooker. But then again, it’s okay to change your mind.
Together with Johan Skugge, who was also a part of the last edition of Robert Johnson and Punchdrunks, Robert now returns to the cinematic music – but with the new band Cantona Gut System all the controls has been turned a few more turns, in every direction. The debut album Yoko: The Best Beatle will feature music that hasn’t been heard.
American indie pop masters The Mommyheads releases the album Future You on Fanfar! this month. Now comes another strong outtake from the album; the video “Mutual Enemy”.
What is the song Mutual Enemy about? This is what Adam Elk, songwriter and singer of The Mommyheads has to say:
Mutual Enemy was also a labor of love. It’s a take on the current geo-political climate using the same stop-motion technique using animated toys? Spoiler alert: We give Robert Mueller a chance to tell us how he really feels at 2:16.

Mutual Enemy can be found on the album Future You, released by Fanfar! on August 30, 2019.
The first video from The Mommyhead’s upcoming album is as captivating as it carries an important message. Will “Woke up a Scientist” be the big hit this fall?
“Woke up a Scientist”, taken from the forthcoming album Future You, is a song about hope and the will and ability of young people to change our world. “Woke up a scientist” not only has a current theme, it’s also one of The Mommyhead‘s strongest songs.
‘Woke Up A Scientist’ is dedicated to anyone with an unbounded Imagination. In this case, my son literally woke up one morning and wanted to be a scientist. I filled in the lyrical gaps with my own interpretation of how the world could benefit from rediscovering the fearlessness of it’s own inner child.

On August 30, 2019 we will release the new album from The Mommyheads, Future You.
Delirium Bullonate is the new single from Robert Johnson and Punchdrunks. The song is taken from the critically acclaimed album Morte di Seeburg.
Robert Johnson and Punchdrunks is one of the world’s most respected names in instrumental rock. Few have passed on the legacy of Link Wray with such grace and at the same time managed to bring in influences from Italian horror films, as well as pioneers of synth music.
The band’s eleventh, strongest and – perhaps – last album, Morte di Seeburg, is film music for a film that never reached the cinemas. The perfect soundtrack for your inner Italian 70s thriller.
The song from the album that might best sum up Robert Johnson and Punchdrunk’s entire career is Delirium Bullonate. Today it is released as a digital single.
This may well be one of the band’s very best songs. Enjoy!
