Mecki Mark Men på nytt
Datum: 2006-11-22

Också Mecki Mark Mens tredje album, »Marathon«. inspelat 1970 i (åtminstone till större delen) Chess-studion i Chicago, har nu återutgivits av skivmärket/affären Mellotronen i Stockholm. Mellotronen (som har rätten till utgivningen fram till februari 2008, sen återgår skivan till Sonet/Universal) presenterar »Marathon« på sin engelskpråkiga hemsida:

»Basically it is the same heavy acid space rock as on their previous »Running in the Summer Night « album. Perhaps with a little more bluesy flavour... but still very dynamic! Mecki Mark Men was (together with Hansson and Karlsson) Jimi Hendrix favourite Swedish band. When Jimi came back from his Swedish tours he probably told the tales about the wild Swedish Organ tormentor Mecki Bodemark who did the same things with his grinding Organ as Jimi did with his guitar. For those of you who have not heard MMM I can tell that they sounds like a mix of Teargas, High Tide and Jimi Hendrix but with a wild organ player and the mighty Kenny Håkansson on Lead Guitar and sitar! After this album Mecki quit and the band changed name to Kebnekajse. This CD includes their SONET album from 1970 plus a commercial jingle. Inside the nice Digipak one can find a complete giglist with all the 317 concerts that this line-up of MMM did during 1969-1970 as well as a detailed biography by Reine Fiske and Tommy Dahlén!!!«

Den 27 januari firar dessutom den psykedeliska skivaffären Mellotronen sitt 20-årsjubileum på en musikbåt mellan Sverige och Finland. Psykedeliska svenska progglegender som Mecki Mark Men (fast i vilken konstellation?), November, Fläsket Brinner, Charlie & Esdor samt Asoka kommer att medverka liksom Mikael Ramel, Jojje Wadenius All Stars, Emma Nordenstam m fl.
