Pekka Volt - Whipped Cream and Gasoline
Imported from Norway
The rest of the band consists of Olafr on drums, Mikro on guitar and Snorre Valen on keyboards. Tom writes the riffs and Kim dreams up arrangements, the songs literally take form in his REM states of deep sleep, which has always been their method of writing material. Kim even came up with the band's name from a dream he once had (or was it a nightmare). Even Lennon and McCartney on LSD couldn't match this style.
Pekka Volt came to light in the spring of 2001. A self-produced demo found its way to Swedish record label MNW Records in Stockholm, who signed the band immediately.
One year later the EP "Corky went Overboard" was released to tremendous reviews in the press (5 out of 6 in the major press, tons of radio playlistings). Three of the EP's four songs were used in commercial film, feature film and Playstation/computer games.
Soon after, Pekka Volt entered a period of uncertainty with various band members quitting and re-joining. It was at this time that current guitarist Mikro joined the band, after he maniacally head-dived into Olafr's drumset during a concert in the spring of 2003 with another established Norwegian band, Cadillac. This act, though painful for himself and devasting for Olafr's trashed drums, so impressed the band that the guitarist had to join. Fact is, he also plays one hell of a guitar.
The result has become a monster of a record titled "Whipped Cream and Gasoline", and has been released in Norway September 13, distributed by Playground Music Scandinavia and in the USA by Listening-Post Music.
