Swedish popsters on films and, y'know, stuff...

Love Is All are set to follow up their cracking ‘Nine Times That Same Song’ debut album of 2005 with a worthy successor in the shape of ‘A Hundred Things Keep Me Up At Night’.

The Swedish five-piece’s new effort is in stores as of March 23, via What’s Your Rupture?, and they play a couple of UK dates in May – be sure to catch ‘em, as they’re a top live act.

Ahead of the UK release of ‘A Hundred Things…’, which features the single ‘Wishing Well’, Clash spoke to the band for one of our regular Culture Clash Extra features. Markus Görsch fills us in…

Top Secret!. Watched this a few times in the van... It’s hilarious!


Eric Satie's letters, and everything by August Strindberg.


‘Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy)’ By Brian Eno. This album is so fun to listen to, so many different styles, and probably the ideal blend of Eno's rock ambitions and his more cerebral music.


From that album, I would say ‘The True Wheel’.

Television show or series

I really still love Seinfeld.


The Fairest of Them All, by artist Sophy Naess.

Holiday destination

San Francisco. We have some good friends there and you can get the best Mexican food. (Surely that’d be in Mexico? - Ed)

Gig venue

Berg 211 here in Gothenburg, Sweden: it is a club-size venue in a cave inside a mountain. It's very mysterious in a gothic kind of sense.

Live band or DJ

Cause Co-Motion from Brooklyn. We toured with them a lot, they are such an amazing live band... very intense and fast, no pauses between songs.
