BRUNIUSSON, HASSE: Flying Food Circus DVD
Samla Mammas Manna's exemplary drummer presents 2 hours of great music, 1 hour 10 minutes of this is the main programme: studio recorded, re-processed and intercut with all manner of entertaining footage. This is not just a performance document, though it is that too. The music retains the spirit of the Samlas (one of the 7 original RIO bands) and is complex, technically accomplished and highly entertaining. The performances are strong, lively and determinedly eccentric. This is probably as close to '70s RIO as you're likely to get on a DVD.Then there are a further 50 minutes of extra pieces from the circus and various other projects Hasse has been involved with in the last decade. Fine work.
