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! POW!

*Tragically, Sjön succumbed to feline-leukemia in 2001. -ed




  1. POW! POW! POW!
