Motvind (upwind) was one of Sweden’s hardest bands in the 70s. They combined heavy, Anglo-Saxon-ish rock with Swedish lyrics – autobiographical ones from an often shady life. To the delight of many and the outrage of some. Their debut ”Känn dig blåst” (Consider yourself screwed, 1976) was a success that was followed by five more albums until 1983, with combined sales of several hundred thousand copies. After 1984 Motvind have performed only sporadically, and this marks these classic suburban rebels’ debut at SRF.

“We’ve said all along that we want The Stage to be a different and exciting listening experience,” says vocalist M. Shadows. “For us, the idea of turning an album into a living piece of art and adding new installations is really intriguing. It expands the journey.”

Guitarist Jim Root adds: “We had such a great time at Knotfest Mexico… Not only with all the friends and bands that were there, but with the fans and the crowd we had to document it with. Now we get to share it with the world.”
