Bonafide release “Snacket” a song in Swedish.
Bonafide release “Snacket” a song in Swedish. The second single from the upcoming album “Are You Listening?” out on Black Lodge on 27 October 2023
Alongside the single a lyric video has been released.

Snacket is a duet in Scanian (Swedish regional dialect) between Wilmer X frontman Nisse Hellberg and Pontus Snibb. The idea came about at an after party after the Wilmer X gig at Gröna Lund in Stockholm. Pontus asked if Nisse wanted to do a duet in Malmoeitic (a type of Scanian spoken in Malmoe).

Nisse liked the idea immediately. Pontus wrote the song the morning after and Nisse received a demo before he had time to take the train home to Malmö. Pontus has played on several Nisse Hellberg solo records and they play together on the soundtrack to Blådårar, the film about MFF and Zlatan. They have together recorded records with The Buckaroos both in Klågerup and New Orleans and done lots of gigs together.

Guest soloist on the song is none other than Pelle Jernryd on lapsteel.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
