Mungolian Jet Set fellows Pål Nyhus & Knut Sævik take a moment to visit with XLR8R’s
Inbox en route to Shangri-La. The Norwegian jet setters remember the King of Pop, discuss
the delicacy of “promiscuous self-service,” share Bee Gees trickery, and design plans to grow
fat on Italian food. Their forthcoming album, We Gave It All Away...Now We Are Taking It
Back , will be out August 18 on Smalltown Supersound.
XLR8R: What are you listening to right now?
Knut Sævik: On top of my turntable is an '81 album from KANO called New York Gang, and
I’m getting into Reinhold Glière’s “No. 2” and “No. 3” symphonies. The last few days I’ve
been listening to Alf Cranner, a Norwegian singer and composer.
Pål Nyhus: As this is written hours after hearing about the death of MJ, it's a kind of weird,
spacey medley of his voice in my head. I guess he is kinda trespassing all our souls now.
