Hans-Peter Lindstrøm

Feedelity Recordings – Norway

1. What is the significance of your label name, Feedelity?

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN MUSIC SOUNDS BOTH GOOD AND BAD AT THE SAME TIME. AN ANNOYING FEEDBACK PLAYED REALLY LOUD ON AN EXPENSIVE HIFI-SYSTEM .. HEHE

2. Tell us about your music, club culture background.

I USED TO PLAY KEYS AND GUITAR IN DIFFERENT COUNTRY AND ROCK-BANDS IN THE 90’S. GOT EXPOSED TO CLUB-CULTURE IN 1999 WHEN I BOUGHT A SAMPLER AND STARTED MAKING ELECTRONICA. I STILL PLAY IN A REALLY NASTY COVER-BAND THOUGH … :o)

3. Tell us about Norway, Oslo DJ House/Techno music scene.

THERE’S A FEW REALLY TALENTED DJ’S AROUND HERE, SUCH AS PRINS THOMAS, TODD TERJE, RUNE LINDBAEK, STRANGEFRUIT AND G-HA … EVERYBODY KNOWS EACH OTHER…. KOOL PEOPLE

4. What do you look for in a beat?

HM… USUALLY LOOK FOR THE MELODY … IN MY OPINION, THE MELODY IS THE BACKBONE OF A TRACK, THE BEAT IS JUST A WRAPPING …

5. Where do you continually get your inspiration?

MUSIC FROM THE 60’S, 70’S AND 80’S. ALL GENRES. ROCK, POP, PSYCHEDELICA, COUNTRY ETC…

6. Which artists are you currently listening to?

HEHE… LATELY I’VE BEEN LISTENING TO LOTS TO YNGWIE MALMSTEENS 1988-ALBUM ‘ODYSSEY’ … AND A FEW BOB EZRIN-PRODUCED ALBUMS: ‘DESTROYER’ BY KISS AND ALICE COOPER’S ‘WELCOME TO MY NIGHTMARE’ … NICE PRODUCTION, EXCELLENT SONGWRITING AND NASTY GUITARS … ACTUALLY I’VE BEEN INTO GUITAR-SOLOS FOR A WHILE NOW … THE SOLO FROM ‘SHOUT IT OUT LOUD’ IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITES ALONG WITH THE CARPENTERS ‘GOODBYE TO LOVE’-SOLO … JUST EXCELLENT !! IT CAN’T BE DONE MUCH BETTER THAN THIS … !! QUEENS ‘THE GAME’ HAS BEEN IN MY MP3-PLAYER FOR MORE THAN A YEAR NOW, TOGETHER WITH JETHRO TULLS ‘SONGS FROM THE WOOD’, VAN DYKE PARKS ‘SONG CYCLE’ AND RAMSEY LEWIS ‘MOTHER NATURES SON’. MY MUSICAL TASTE IS CONSTANTLY CHANGING. I RARELY LISTEN TO NEW MUSIC, BUT I LIKE THE SOUNDS FROM HEADMAN, IDJUT BOYS, CHICKEN LIPS, HARVEY AND DANIEL WANG … RECENTLY THERE’S BEEN A FEW COMPILATIONS WITH OLD 80’S ELECTRONICA SUCH AS THE FIRST ‘SERIE NOIRE’-COMP AND THE FIRST ‘TEUTONIC DISASTER’-COMP ON GOMMA WHICH ARE QUITE GOOD.

7. Your best place for music .. around the world?!

MAKING MUSIC IN MY STUDIO IN OSLO. JAPAN IS GOOD FOR BUYING MUSIC THOUGH…

8. Samples or Analog equip. ?!

A BIT OF BOTH. THE MOST INTERESTING SOUNDS IS WHEN THOSE 2 ARE COMBINED. JUST LISTEN TO HOLGER CZUKAYS ‘MOVIES’-ALBUM …

9. Do you prefer vinyl or cd?

VINYL FOR DJ’ING, MP3S FOR HOME-LISTENING …

10. Talk about the future about sound, music, rhythm ..what you have in mind! (music)

HM … MORE MELODIES AND PSYCHEDELIC GUITAR SOLOS IN CONTEMPORARY ELECTRONICA …. (I PROMISE THAT MY GUITAR-SOLOS WILL BE FASTER … HEHE )

Biography:

Lindstrom is the moniker of Hans-Peter Lindstrom. Born and raised on country & western in the west coast of Norway, he now resides in Oslo making electronic music with a nerve. Hans-Peter is a multi instrumentalist, playing both drums, guitar, bass and keyboards. The untitled EP on Feedelity Recordings, feed000, is the first release from this young rascal. On the next feedelity-release, feed001, Lindstrom has been doing some serious songwriting. Together with Christabelle, they’ve taken care of the melodic aspects in an attempt to make an ‘old-fashioned’ electronica-pop-tune. Future releases from Lindstrom includes a 4-track EP on Rune Lindbaeks Romklang-label, a single together with Rune on US label Modal, a remix for Kangos (Trailerpark) new project Mi Corvano, a remix of Fuzz Against Junk’s modern classic “Country Klonk” on Stevie Koteys Bearfunk-label, and a remix for norwegian artists Fenomenon to be released on Beatservice.
