Goteborg and Budapest shows went down pretty well this weekend.
Wed even had some reviews from the Gothenburg show. See if we can review those on our scrutinized press section. Look for that.
On the menu today otherwise. Keep mixing songs. Pelle and Vig in studio to lend a prefessional ear to our mixer guy Pelle?! Gunnerfeldt that is.
Me I just mowed the lawn.
Take it easy keep it greasy.

Brought the house down in Ostersund.
Great show, 5+ ratings, fun afterparty etc etc.
I did not try the mooseshaped mooseburger. I don't eat meat see.
Take it easy until Gothenburg. Sit tight.

So the London shows went down really well. Played the 100 Club and Hoxton Bar and Grill. London has proven to be classic Hives turf so no real resistance was expected but... one never knows with the fickle islanders of the British Isles.
Thought that I would describe with my own words what happened but I think I will leave it up to someone else this time simply because I agree with these two reporters who wrote this and I am tired after the tuesday and wednesday meltdowns.
Here we go:
The Times – “The new songs sounded smarter and heavier than ever. A triumphant return indeed”
Daily Star – “They used to be our new favourite band, now they’re the best band in the world”.
Yeah, so I agree wholeheartedly with both Mr Times and Mrs Star (they gotta be great reporters and have an eye for proper rock'n roll don't you think?) and I would only in addition like to say "Thank you!" and "You're welcome London!".
