In this First Concert Ever segment, the hard rock band, Åskväder, shares the story of their first live music experience. You can check out the story and stream their newest single, “Quick Fixes”, after the break.

Martin Olsson who is the main guy to ask regarding the compositions of the songs presented by the Swedish band Åskväder well remembers his first real live experience, he also lays down the guitar parts for the band.

 

He was 6 years old and his older brother Jens was playing with his ska-punk band (Skawalkers – catchy name!) at the local music club in the small village Mora in the more uncongested parts of mid-Sweden.

 

The crowd was crazy, as Martin remembers – bare in mind that this was his first live experience, and Jens bearded cool looking friends took turns watching over the little guy.

 

Of course, this was heaven on earth for Martin as he got to hang out with the cool older guys and was treated like someone really special.
Jens was and is Martins biggest influence for everything ranging from how to grow cool dreads and a beard to which music to listen to. Big influences, of course, was Kiss, AC/DC and The Hellacopters.

 

This show really turned Martins world around and from that moment he knew in his little mind that music would come to play a substantial role in his life.
