I'm really impressed by the fact that young upcoming bands still manage to renew the musical expression. Oh No Ono not only do that by their exciting songs which might be called sophisticated neo-art-punk: short-cut up-tempo songs with some surprising song titles and lyrics.
They performed a double concert at Viften together with The Broken Beats (see here) for a very young and entusiastic audience of dedicated fans, some of whom were invited on stage to do the choir in one of the highlights of the night: When front singer Malthe played a marvellous solo called Sunshine And Rain At Once.
The three band members in front had a hairstyle similar to the 1966 Bob Dylan and they gave a wonderful fast and almost unrecognizable coverversion of the 60's style rap, Subterranean Homesick Blues.
Another highlight for me was the almost psychedelic Beatles-cover song, Tomorrow Never Knows.
The setlist below are reconstructed, and additions/corrections are most welcome.
