Skjelvekommode is the musical magic that happens when Frank Tønnesen (Tønes) and Frode Strømstad (I Was A King) meet and play around with each others ideas. The fallout is more genuinely Frank but more immediately Frode, warm, international sounding pop songs, sung in Norwegian. The project isn’t just the sum of its parts, Tønes and I Was A King, more an unplanned escapade along an as yet undefined path. Think Jeff Tweedy and Neil Young in a oddball country dialect. Think slide guitars and pop refrains. Either way, you’ve not heard anything like it. Alongside Frank and Frode are multi-instrumentalist Erlend Aasland on strings / keys, Morten Jackman (Wunderkammer, Helldorado) on drums and Ole Reidar Gudmestad on bass. Skjelvekommode released their first magnificent seven inch in 2010 and will follow up with a full album in the new year.
