Uppsala


Uppsala was formed way back in 1969 under the name Absinthe. Though in the second half of the 1970s their name was changed. The band's new name is the namesake of the Swedish city of Uppsala. The latter was the hometown of two guitar players, Coste Apetrea (of Samla Mammas Manna) and Jukka Tolonen, who Absinthe met while they were vacationing on the French South-West coast in 1978. What's especially interesting is that Uppsala were actively touring throughout the last three decades. Read more on Last.fm
Uppsala was formed way back in 1969 under the name Absinthe. Though in the second half of the 1970s their name was changed. The band's new name is the namesake of the Swedish city of Uppsala. The latter was the hometown of two guitar players, Coste Apetrea (of Samla Mammas Manna) and Jukka Tolonen, who Absinthe met while they were vacationing on the French South-West coast in 1978.

What's especially interesting is that Uppsala were actively touring throughout the last three decades. Today the group is concentrating on putting together a new repertoire. They are looking forward to new concerts and finally, recording their second album. It's a uniquely rare case when there is only one album in the 'annals' (can't call it "discography") of the band, which has existed for more than 30 years.

After a car incident in 1979, bandleader Philippe Cauvin has lost both of his legs. That disaster had probably became one of the main causes of his inactivity regarding the work on new material.
