Latest News from the band

Posted in : News

Looking back the latest half year it has been an interesting time for Some Kind of Rubus. Dear violinist Petter Axelsson made the choice to leave for working commitments musically as a full-time paid musician. We understand him. Smörgåsbord was released on iTunes, Spotify etc and the musical journey on the platter suited the name of the album, it is really a smorgasbord of different styles and moods. In the discussions that followed and the direction for Some Kind of Rubus future music-wise, Emil and Anders do have a clear picture: more direct songs, punky vibes, great sing-a-long melodies and simply “songs that makes people happy”. Örjan and Robert chose to go another direction so Some Kind of Rubus is now built up again with new hungry and great musicians. The first we want to introduce is drummer Mats “Mally” Håxell, who also contributes with great backing vocals and great ideas. Charlie “Chuck” Waldrup has helped laying down some great guitars for the first new songs and we are now testing guitarists for a stable line-up that will record the follow-up to Smorgasbord. We are five songs in and song-titles thus far is two from last year called “Folkrocker” and “Fudge”, latter recordings include the upcoming single and video “Any Other Day” and “Seagull”. The latest is called “Willie And The Cha Cha”.
The band feels creativity is flowing and that the direction that feels most True to what Some Kind of Rubus is all about is great. We want you to know things feels really Positive and look forward to a great new start of the band!

Thanx a lot to Örjan, Petter and Robert for some productive years! Also a big thanx to Charlie for helping out with some guitars.

See you soon guys! We are back live-wise in a moment also!

Emil and Anders

Emil’s Secret Audition with Nazareth

Posted in : News

After some private recordings and discussions between Nazareth’s Pete Agnew and SKoR vocalist Emil Gammeltoft, Nazareth flew Emil over to Scotland on October the 5:th 2013 to audition for possible replacement as new vocalist in Nazareth. Legendary vocalist Dan McCafferty had to step aside because of health problems and tours were coming up that meant it was urgent to find a new vocalist. Emil’s audition with the band went great and felt really good and a fantastic 24 hours followed in their hometown of Dunfermline and Perth. Approximately 2,5 weeks after Emil’s audition illness happened in the band that meant all was put on hold and all tours were cancelled. It was not before February 2014 auditions with the other singers could start. As it has now become official local vocalist Linton Osborne did get the job, Emil can finally say Thanx to Nazareth for taking him over and the great hospitality and friendship that did happen. Emil would also like to give Linton a big warm Hug and hope to catch up at any upcoming gig backstage for a pint or two.

Emil is currently working hard in the studio with new tracks for Some Kind of Rubus (SKoR) upcoming second album (which will be more raw and punky in style) and another side-project will also be recorded very soon that may be called Rampant. Expect release dates before summer.

On March 1:st 2014 The Fluffy Jackets release “Fighting Demons” where Emil guests on two tracks together with Neil Murray, Manny Charlton, Helge Rognstad and other great musicians. Out on Cargo Records worldwide.
