Lucas Stark & Bruksorkestern
Lucas Stark and Bruksorkestern are recording a CD in Studio Fabriken under the management of Eld Records. The recording will be finnished in October. The band plays chapbook songs. These songs were yesterdays way of spreading news and stories about horrible murders and other terrible things, although in a poetic form. It was a very slow way of spreading news compared with today. In these days we get to know about everything instantly. Lucas and Bruksorkestern are dealing with the old material in a most respectful way, and they give colour to the songs with modern tunes.

Lucas Stark
– guitar and vocal, Sven Appel – double bass and chorus, Leo Berger – Elka Organ, pump Organ, accordion and chorus, Daniel Pettersson – drums and chorus, Livet Nord – violin and chorus. Participating on some tracks: Lars Söderström – violin and chorus.

Frölunda Kulturhus
This autumn, 2006, we will give concerts at Frölunda Kulturhus, Gothenburg "Eld Konserter", "Eld Concerts". From the beginning the thought was to arrange small, intimate concerts in Studio Fabriken in Göteborg/Gothenburg, the studio wich is connected to Eld Records. We wanted the studio to be a meeting point for music and people. As the studio is relatively small, not more than 30 listeners could visit the concerts there. The concept has been to let two artists of musically different characters share one evening. All to give the audience a wide and interesting selection. Frölunda Kulturhus found our idea about Eld Concerts, and during the autumn we will give three of these concerts there.

20 October: Bastukvintetten and Brandqvist/bengmark Kvartett
10 November: Lucas Stark & Bruksorkestern and Maria Stoltz Kvintett (together with some members from Jazz And Art)
2 December: Sten Löfman (solopiano) and Vanessa and the Devilment
