Skull Defekts

are Sweden's answer to the States' Sonic Youth and the Netherlands' The Ex and one of the centerpieces of the Swedish experimental rock scene. Since their creation in 2005, The Skull Defekts have taken their base of classic rock with massive guitar riffing, and infused it with their interest in circular composition, drone, tribal music, Indian ragas, '60s minimalism, and experimental music from numerous ages.

If you were stranded on a deserted island you would...
take these three books along:

Nan Goldin: «The Devil’s Playground» / Richard Coleman: «I Was Just Leaving: The Artwork of Richard Colman» / David Shrigley: «The Book of Shrigley». No literature, only stuff to look at.

Alan Vega - Saturn Strip

I love this album. Good to listen to when I get high on rotten coconuts.

Brian Eno - Discreet Music

Perfect to listen to in the dark trying to sleep.

take these three DVDs along:

Kenneth Anger’s complete works. Need to get some occult stuff in paradise! / Dario Argento’s box set. Psychedelic horror movies are never wrong. / a DVD including nudity. Well, if I’m alone I need some digital ladies company, no?

take these three games along:

I guess I'm alone so... a football would be enough.

start to learn these three things:

surviving / not missing things at home / that space is the place!

subscribe to these three newspapers / magazines:

The Wire / National Geographic / The New York Times

miss these three things the most about living in a city:

gigs / restaurants / life

invite these three persons for a weekend:
