A Lucid Swede With a Puckish Sense of Music Humor.

"Hollmer is the core of an odd Swedish band that began as folk musicians and gradually drifted toward prog rock with a vengeance.
His collaborater, Eino Haapala, would make a good role model for any would be guitar strummer.
Over the years, Hollmers group has been variously known as 'Zamla Mammaz Momma' or 'Milk of Mothers Breast', Von Zamla on some other great release that sounds like loopy merry go round music from hell and 'Samla.'
Again, this Hollmer guy has something rare among dour northern Euro's, a puckish sense of humor wedded to impeccable, delightful musicianship.
Looping Home Orchestra is offspring of a show at the legendary Victoriaville music fest in Quebec and also features the noted Brit guitarist, Fred Frith, on it.
Of course, I love the thing and am thrilled to own it. It's funny to me how a universe of frustrated conservatory students in the EU heard Zappa and embraced him in a heartbeat while an America that worships provincial stupidity unless a buck can be made, flatly doesn't know what to make of a brilliant pest like the mourned and missed master, Zappa."
