Anekdoten: The Ghosts Of Future Past
After eight years away, Swedish prog diehards Anekdoten have fired up the analogue equipment and made a new album. Frontman Nicklas Barker talks life, death and “King Crimson clones”.
Eight years is a long time in rock’n’roll. The last time Swedish progressive rock stalwarts Anekdoten released a studio album, this magazine didn’t even exist, which goes some way to explaining why this is the first time we’ve had the pleasure of chatting with their founder member Nicklas Barker. The sixth Anekdoten album, Until All The Ghosts Are Gone, sees the return of a band that were flying the flag for prog’s sonic ethics and aesthetic values way back in the early 90s.
