The evening of February 26, 2016, was perfect and the show was grand. Many of us oldies were there for the return of Refused and to get the live addition to the fantastic album Freedom (Epitaph, 2016) one of the best ever from 2015. Luckily we were there in good time to listen to the support of Arre! Arre! locally from Malmö, which surprised us in a really positive manner. The intention to pass on all these feelings directly after the gig was the strongest… Now we have June 1, 2016, and we all wonder what happened with time since. Important family matters and all too much to do at work has suppressed the impressions of this evening until now!! ‘But better late than never…’ works really in heavy metal also. Then it will be a perfect introduction to a summer in southern Sweden, which seems to have arrived a little earlier than normal. Let’s hope it also lasts longer than normal.
Katja Nielsen singer and bass player expressed the whole situation very well: “Hey, all of this people here tonight??…I thought only that my boyfriend would show up!”
Arre! Arre! performed very well and their ‘rioty’ punk rock created the perfect atmosphere at KB, Malmö, and prepared us all for the really angry boys of Refused from Umeå, Sweden.
