Review of 'Painted Romans ...and Time!'

On 11 Nov Mr. Leonard of the highly respected 'The Weblog Of Leonard's Lair' published the very first review of the second Painted Romans album. I must admit to blushing while reading it . . . It's hard to explain the profound pleasure I take in writing, producing, designing and hand-making these items to people who appreciate my works: INDEED IT MEANS THE WORLD TO ME!

". . . he sounds like the Scandinavian answer to early Prefab Sprout."

". . . this gentleman deserves an award for being an honorary eccentric Brit. . ."

". . . there's more creativity in one song here then there is in a whole albums' worth of many big name, so-called 'alternative' releases.

Album due in 2010


(Mats Davidsen posing!)

It has become sort of a habit for P.R. to release something every 2-3 years, and the modern Romans of 2010 won't prove any different. Due later this year is the more experimental follow-up to 2008's 'Evil Wigs and Bedroom Moments', the album that "shook" the world with its strange poster slash download format. Yes, it was indeed a weird, yet genius way of releasing an album. General confusion seemed to soar high!

The process of making this album has been an ongoing, and head scratching(!) one for the last couple of years, and on this I've been joined by my dearest for vocals on my personal favourite song, and Mr Dahlø plays the drums on another (was extra with Evil Wigs...) Mr Jacobsen of We Are Monsters has indeed provided me with his kick drum idea on one, and myself have spent months and months glueing it together. Well, it is time, soon. . .

Up and at 'them!

List-mania!

Every year there are top-10/50/100-lists made by people who have been observing and writing about music and, I would imagine, nearly everything else including movies, electronic gadgets, cars, etc.
2009 was of course no exception, and Painted Romans' album 'Evil Wigs and Bedroom Moments' made its first list-appearence when Jon Leonard of the great Weblog Of Leonard's Lair featured it amongst his TOP 10 ALBUMS of 2009!

It was published on [sic]magazine along with several other Writers Top Ten of 2009.

Jon Leonard also wrote a lovely review of the album.
