Micke Syd touring with his cover band

MORA - Micke "Syd" Andersson, the drummer of Gyllene Tider, is taking a break from their current studio work to tour with his band S.O.S.

  The band, originally named Stars of Snäck, was formed to be the house band at Hotel Snäck on Gotland island during the summer months. Now that they are performing also in the other places, they decided to use the acronym S.O.S. They play only cover songs – including, apparently, some of the old Gyllene Tider hits.

  "This is the band's winter edition," says Micke Syd. S.O.S. is performing today in Sälen and tomorrow in Falun.

  Micke has been working with the other members of Gyllene Tider to record songs for the new record. "We'll see what we get out of it. The single is a summer song – Gyllene Tider is always Gyllene Tider – but if we get more songs done, maybe it will sound a little different," he says. Asked why he's in Sälen instead of Halmstad, he comments "We haven't played together for eight years, but it took us two minutes to get back to work. The studio work is very relaxed."
