Mothercake also released one privately pressed album, an eponymous effort in 2003. Half Man and Mothercake shared one split single, aptly titled Half Man vs. Mothercake Vol. 1, in 1999. The different band members all have at least two things in common. First the fact that they all come from the same place, Örkelljunga, a small village in the south of Sweden.
The three older members Janne Bengtsson, Patric Carlsson and Patrik Berglin have been friends since their early teenage years. The second thing in common is the love for old 70’s hard and heavy rock. A lot of inspiration has been gathered through the years from Jan Bengtsson’s and Patric Carlsson’s sizeable collections of vintage vinyl, amongst the rich amounts of hard rock, progressive, blues and psychedelia. In some way this shared musical background have given birth to a special sound which is distinctive as coming from Örkelljunga.
Where Half Man played a blues based heavy rock and Mothercake had more metal inclinations it still had that same sound. A sound with one foot firmly planted in the seventies, yet going somewhere fresh and new. Perhaps the music of Skånska Mord sounds something like a blend of both Half Man and Mothercake. The album, The Last Supper, was recorded during the spring of 2009 by Martin Ekelund and will be released by Small Stone Records sometime near the end of the year.
