I recently found out that Gunnar, Jakob and Nisse, Salem’s brilliant backing band, also have a band of their own, along with keyboard player Kalle. They are called Tincan, and they play a mixture of Afro-beat, blues and rock which can be heard over at their MySpace (

Tracks include "Pick It Up" (that’s my favourite), "Hold On Strong" and "Leave The Keys". The band is influenced by African music, notably the legendary Fela Kuti. Gunnar is the lead singer - not only is he a brilliant guitarist but he has a great voice too. They played their first gig at Landet in Stockholm on 30.04.08 but plan some more gigs in the next few months both in Sweden and overseas. Hope to hear more from them.
