The Swedish band, Dungen (love the name) stopped by Third Man Records recently to record a "Blue Series" single. Read all about it:|
"On a balmy evening in mid-September, I had the psychedelic kick of watching Jack White at work, producing new wax at his home studio in Nashville. On the other side of the control-room window, the Swedish quartet Dungen filled the playing space with an iridescent thunder destined for a forthcoming seven-inch "Blue Series" single on White's Third Man label. The piece I heard, a few times, was a heavy stunning instrumental long enough to spill over both sides of a 45. I hope it stays that way. Dungen's founder-composer Gustav Ejstes hammered a hypnotic winding-staircase figure on piano, threaded by Reine Fiske's snake-like coils of scouring-fuzz guitar. "Do more of that thing, the lick you were playing at the end," White told Fiske after one take, then suggested that Ejstes start the piece alone, for extra-ghostly effect, before the power chords and rhythm section kicked in. "Man, that was sick," White said with a delighted cackle after Dungen hit a metallic early-Procol Harum high — my impression — on the next extended performance. "Let's have another one."
