Music news

Swedish musician Bror Gunnar Jansson celebrates his 10th career by releasing Moan Snake Moan. The opportunity to return to “God Have Mercy”.

It’s time to (re)discover “God Have Mercy” by Bror Gunnar Jansson and its original music video:

With more than 10 years of career, the Swedish bluesman is re-releasing his album Moan Snake Moan with additional tracks, including “God Have Mercy”, which at the time was only available on the CD and digital version. “God Have Mercy didn’t fit on the vinyl version of the album at the time, but it now fits on the new version of Moan Snake Moan” explains Bror Gunnar Jansson to the editorial staff.

Far from being a simple release of the album that propelled the Swede to success, Moan Snake Moan Pt.I, Pt.II & Pt.III deeply enhances its first iteration. Indeed, it includes the two suites of the title track, entitled The Rattlesnake and The Bearsnake, respectively present on the untitled EP of 2014 (released only in 49 copies) and the anniversary compilation from Bear Family Records. This reissue comes two years later Faceless Evil, Nameless Fearhis latest album to date.

Bror Gunnar Jansson will also celebrate this anniversary on stage. Its next Parisian date is scheduled for January 26 at La Maroquinerie, as part of the next edition of the Les Nuits de l’Alligator festival. Places are available.
