Peter, Bjorn and John

Hard rocking Swedes!

There was some concern amongst the audience assembled at the Red Marquee on Sunday afternoon that the Swedish trio Peter, Bjorn, and John would disappoint by being too "acoustic".

These worries were soon done away with as the band ripped into their opening number with all of the energy and reckless abandon power-pop bands of yore such as The Jam. Guitarist and Vocalist Peter Moren wore a black and white striped shirt and blazer, jumping around stage crazily, sometimes in circles like a dog chasing his own tail in songs such as "Objects of My Affection" and "Teen Love". Both of these singles since being released in 2006 have received heavy radio play, becoming instant classics, vaulting the band into a position amongst some of the elite bands in the pop genre. The trio's live performance of these songs did not disappoint, and in fact, the only acoustic ballad was an acapella version of "Amsterdam" sung by bass player Bjorn, who provided a tempo adjustment for an otherwise rocking set.

The highlight was undoubtedly the band's rendition of their hit song "Young Folks" for which they brought out a member of local band Deerhoof as well as drummer, Sean, from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. An afternoon downpour may have inadvertently diverted some into the Red Marquee this afternoon, but Peter, Bjorn and John definitely did their best to entertain those unfamiliar with Sweden's fastest rising pop trio.
