Lee celebrated the release of their second album, Swan
Lee, by invitating friends and colleagues within the
music business to a Release Party at Lille Vega. And
there was something to celebrate! Already on the release day
the album had achieved break even and had sold Gold,
too (which means 20.000 sold copies).
These very down-to-earth and charming band members circulated
in the crowd talking to the present people. A quarter past
10 they gave a brief performance at stage, playing a handfull
of highlights from the album. They started with the catching
I Don't Mind, written to Pernille's
boyfriend, Johan Wohlert, bass player in Danish
band Mew. The following songs were much more
tight and sharp, compared to the live versions I've heard
Later at the evening they showed Christina Rosendahl's
minimalistic and tight cut video to I Don't Mind.
Very much fit to the music. After that the three of them made
a speech about the birth of the album and thanked the people
involved. They rediated true happines, when they performed
their speeches - far from the attitudes of grandiosity, we
are used to among many rock stars.
Only bring-down was the stage light, which (of course) not
are meant to ease the photographer's task! Only red light
throughout the songs. So forgive me for the poor and grainy
result in odd colours!
