Interview article in Morgenbladet, 28 June 2013

This article is in Norwegian and deals with the question: ‘What is typical Norwegian music’?

I make the claim that in popular music it is only really Black Metal that is internationally associated with Norwegian music. The writer of this article, Solveig Nygaard Langvad, also gets Bjørn Hatterud to comment. He is in complete disagreement with me that Alexander Rybak’s Eurovision song, Fairytale, is more Irish sounding than Norwegian.
