Den Fule - "Skalv"
Den Fule (pronounced den FOO-leh', translated means the ugly one') is primarily a collection of veterans from the ground-breaking Swedish folk-rock scene of the 70s, from bands such as Filarfolket and Groupa. Stylistically, Den Fule can combine R&B grooves with pop-rock riffs and zazz phrasing while the melody maintains a loyal reading og a traditional fiddle tune (and thatīs all just the first track!) Throughout it all, the music is always rooted in the folk tradition of Sweden, and incredible playing is always at center stage. (www.noside.com)
