"October 14 is also King's Day in Elgaland-Vargaland, and the opening of the Leif Elggren retrospective at Fragfabriken Stockholm. Three tracks: 'Ugn', '60 Seconds of Silence for Per Jonsson', 'Mat'. Ugn: In the oven the porridge cooking. Two actors worked furiously. Intense and violent. Everything painted orange. Glass porcelain smashed. Tools used. Sledge hammer spit club. 27 girls dressed in white. The porridge still cooking when the actors left. Bits and pieces. Stillness. 'Ugn' was recorded in December 1984 at EMS in Stockholm for a performance at Fylkingen Stockholm on January 12th, 1985. 'Ugn' was first released as a12" by Radium 226.5 in 1986. 'Mat': Repeated four times in one evening. On the border between sleep and waking. Ten actors with false beards in bed. Fed with potatoes during the acts. Eating sleeping pills. Drinking Whisky in the breaks. A fight against indolence. Movements rapidly changing between intensity and stillness. A dog dressed like a sheep. "Mat" was recorded during the Spring of 1989 at EMS for a performance at Moderna Dansteatern in Stockholm on May 19th 1989."
