    1Thousand ways to look clever [2007]


    With love of music as the least common denominator The Colombos
    is formed by five men in the town of Västerås, Sweden, in 2002. This
    love is central in the creative process and takes on different forms as
    the band progresses. In The Colombos infant stages the guitar and the
    drums bring forth the noisy garage sound with a busy and energeti
    Farfisa organ that glues it all together. During this time the material
    is aggressive and the live shows are short and intense, which is also
    reflected on the releases "Extended Play" (EP, WY Ljudproduktion, 2003)
    and "Bang Bang" (EP, Highlight Music, 2006). Live, the audience will see a
    band that squeezes every watt out of the amplifiers and every drop of sweat
    out of themselves. The music delivered is hard, straightforward and structured,
    despite an atmosphere on and off stage that might seem a bit chaotic to

    The band manages to do a lot of gigs, including support slots for
    The Soundtrack Of Our Lives and Division of Laura Lee. With the passing
    of time and road miles the word about The Colombos live supremacy spreads
    across the country and the band members form an intense bond, on and off stage.
    The philosophy is more or less to just go straight ahead and not dwell on the
    artistic decisions too long. This leads to a period of turmoil and conflict within
    the band, mostly concerning the musical and creative direction. Out of the
    disputes The Colombos' future sound is cemented.

    The fall of 2006 the band enters Svenska Grammofonstudion and in nine days
    they capture ten songs on tape, with Per Stålberg (Division of Laura Lee) and
    Mattias Nyberg as producers. Together they manage to bring forth what makes
    The Colombos such an amazing band. Pop and punk is mixed with classic garage
    rock and a pinch of psychedlia. The keyboards have a more prominent role while
    the drums and the bass are kept in a close and strong frame. The sound has evolved
    and is slightly darker and more experimental without losing its characteristic
    drive and energy. The result of these sessions will be the album
    "Thousand Ways To Look Clever" (Regain Records, 2007).
