Komeda

Swedish cult sensations, Komeda were started in Umeå by Henrik Andersson (now in Ray Wonder), Lena Karlsson and the two brothers Marcus and Jonas Holmberg, and are named after Polish musician and composer Kryzstof Komeda (known for composing music for early Roman Polanski films). They have recorded several albums for Sweden’s NONS Records, as well as being asked by Beck himself, to support his 1996 tour. Their music is a swirling mix of melodic pop, film music and 70’s/80’s punk/new wave.

Komeda provided the third single for Blow Up’s 1000 Series, which is a storming cut taken from their second album, ‘The Genius Of Komeda’. ‘Boogie Woogie/Rock’n’Roll‘ is a short sharp blast of Swede beat and is backed by the more jazz influenced ‘Herbamore’, previously a Swedish-only release. This was the first time either of these tracks were commercially available on a single to the UK.
