HERMAN DÜNE was birthed by DAVID-IVAR HERMAN DÜNE and ANDRE HERMAN DÜNE more than ten years ago; the two Swedish-rooted fans of American music were playing all around Europe and the States before they'd even begun making records. Having written over four hundred songs, released three CDs and worked on a slew of side projects and self releases, they have become a reference in modern folk-rock. NME, Melody Maker, The Independent, Mojo, and others have praised their albums, and one went so far as to describe them as "Swedish Lo-Fi Serge Gainsbourgs." John Peel invited them for a studio session in September 2000, and to his home for a live BBC broadcast of his Christmas party the same year. He continues to champion the band on the other side of the ocean. The band's first stateside release came with Shrimper's They Go to the Woods, which Mojo reckoned was one of the finest releases of 2001. Between that release and this one they knocked out a record for the Prohibited Label, have collaborated with Julie Doiron & Cerberus Shoal, and eaten plenty of hash cookies, scones and crepes. The singular and touching voices of David-Ivar and André are carried by the solid, minimal beats of their drummer, Neman. Ten songs grace Mash Concrete Metal Mushroom, which combine their spare sense of melody, elliptical style of poetics, and love of musical history.
