Slapran plays rare gig in front of Rockland audience

SLAPRAN concert to support release of new LP

Psychotron Records in Sweden as SLAPRAN play rare gig to launch new album.

Pete has just returned from his travels again – this time a trip to Sweden to be at the first gig to support the launch of the SLAPRAN LP. They were supporting Anekdoten, a well known Swedish progressive rock band at the Rockland club in Sala.

The lovely, atmospheric and successful Club is owned and run Slapran’s drummer, Lenny Carr. This was a chance to see SLAPRAN play a rare gig.

Slapran are shy of the stage and despite having played together for over a decade they have not performed to audiences very often so this was a rare treat.

Pete had travelled from England to see it but there were others come from many miles away to see this performance.

Despite Peter N’s problems with his new electronic stage tuner, they were well received by the crowd, including the regulars and the bar staff.

We had a stock of the vinyl for sale and it was flying off the table. We only had 300 copies of the record pressed so make sure that you get your copy soon.

If we had known just what the demand was then maybe we would have pressed up 400 copies! You can buy a copy direct from this website.

As well as the concert, seeing SLAPRAN play a rare gig, visiting Sweden is always a great time with wonderful friends.

We have known Peter for many years and spent many an evening in the underground rehearsal rooms listening to his music. It is a real pleasure to have SLAPRAN released onto vinyl at last, especially a British pressed record in a laminated flipback sleeve.

All of the band are avid record collectors so this was a dream come true for them! Next time perhaps they will opt for a gatefold embossed double album??
