Sjöns former manager Klaus Sandvik:
"Here's an interesting factoid that'll
wow your friends and confound your enemies. Some sources(maybe
a superscript 1 here? Like
a reference?) attribute the popular phrase "Fuck you and
the horse you rode in on" to Sjon, who moonlighted as a cattle
rustler before turning to music. Don't believe that? Listen
closely to "POW! POW! POW!". You can hear the lonesome
call of a coyote on the prairie about half way through. At
least you would be able to if the song weren't so fucking lo-fi.
Believe me now?"
After years of releasing critically acclaimed EPs from his home,
Sjön finally reached america with the lo-fi anthem POW! POW!
*Tragically, Sjön succumbed to feline-leukemia
in 2001. -ed
- POW! POW! POW!
