Now the band is releasing a single, whose title track was originally recorded by Ulf Dageby of Nationalteatern. Gallret (‘The Grid’) is taken from the soundtrack of the iconic film Ett anständigt liv (‘A Decent Life’). In Robert Johnson and Punchdrunk’s version, the original has been moved around; things have been added and things have been subtracted. A punky and respectful treatment in equal parts. Ulf Dageby is a fan himself and has of course given the project his blessing.
This is sampling taken to a new level.
The B-side rocking smoker And The Devil On Guitar is written by the band’s latest addition, bassist Tobias Einestad.
This single is a foretaste of an upcoming studio album.
For this recording, Robert Johnson and Punchdrunks are Robert Johnson, guitar; David Silva, synths, bass and drum programming; and Tobias Einestad, guitar, bass, drums, synths and horns. Also participating on Gallret are Ulf Dageby, Martin Hederos, Conny Nimmersjö and Per Melin.
Release date: 20th of October, 2023
