I decided this morning that I don’t update this site nearly enough with my thoughts about music, in fact, in the last couple of years, i have hardly written about music. Finding some old reviews of mine gave me a push. I shall attempt from now on to write at least twice a week. hopefully more. Even if it is just posting classic videos, or old reviews.
Today, i plan on starting with “Here we go” by Stakka Bo. I was reminded of this the other day because i was searching for some info on the Army Of Lovers. A truly great band, and the precursor to modern “gay pop” such as Alcazar and B.W.O (both of them also being Alexander Bard projects!). Aaanyway, I discovered that La Camilla from AoL used to go out with Stakka Bo. what a fantastic, inbred little pop musical planet we live in!
So I dug out my CD Single of “Here we go” and immedaitely remembered how much I loved it at the time…
Thanks to the wonders of the internet, you can now track down old popstars and see what they are up to. This is part one of a new series of posts stalking popstars of old. (suggestions of future posts are welcome!) – Turns out it was quite easy finding old Stakka, he’s been a busy boy! Turns out I was subliminally aware of his recent work already.
“He has directed music videos for a number of artists including Kylie Minogue‘s “Love at First Sight“, All Saints‘ “Black Coffee“, Madonna‘s “Hung Up” and “Nothing Really Matters“, Robbie Williams‘s “Tripping” and “She’s Madonna“, The Libertines‘ “What Became of the Likely Lads“, Suede‘s “She’s in Fashion“, New Order‘s “Crystal“, Beyoncé Knowles‘ “Me, Myself and I“, The Knife‘s “Pass This On“, Fever Ray‘s “Seven” and Bat for Lashes‘ “Daniel“. In TV, has directed episode 205 from AMC’s “Breaking Bad””
Not only this, He has teamed up with Jonas Ackerlund to form “R.A.F.”
So there you have it. from “Here we go” to “Breaking Bad” in one easy blog post!
coming soon – Army Of Lovers, Pop! and Daphne & Celeste.
