POPPSYKOSEN


Band members
 
Orla Hylleberg Eriksen - Guitars

Besides guitars he also plays keyboards and compose most of the material by midi-programming and harddisk-recording. You can click here to see his guitars.
Musical influences: A lot, but to point out some highlights. Jimi Hendrix and Cream. Their songs "Hey Joe" and "Sunshine of Your Love" made me want to play the electric guitar. Then came Procol Harum with the majestic "A Whiter Shade of Pale", but also their later work inspired me alot. King Crimson and Manfred Mann's Earth Band. Their songs "In the Court of the Crimson King" and "Father of Day, Father of Night" really turned my head with the lush sound of the Mellotron. Mahavishnu Orchestra with the LP "Birds of Fire" the way the themes and melodies was created intrigued me.
Concerts of importance: Focus in 1974, Mahavishnu Orchestra in 1975, Magma in 1976 this was pure savage magic. TransAtlantic in 2010 in Victoria Park, London playing Whirlwind and Return of the Giant Hogweed with Steve Hackett. These concerts really blew me away. I was "high" on music lang after.
