From Avant-Garde to pop culture to alternative scenes: the case of two Swedish bands, Blå Tåget and Träd, Gräs & Stenar

2016 (English)In: A cultural history of the Avant-Garde in the Nordic Countries 1950-1975 / [ed] Tania Ørum & Jesper Olsson, Brill Academic Publishers, 2016, p. 762-771Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In 1967-1968 some Swedish avant-garde poets, artists, critics and musicians turned to pop music and formed groups that performed at museums, happenings, art galleries and other venues. Blå Tåget often used a variety of genres, sometimes with a nostalgic or ironic perspective; Träd Gräs & Stenar produced a mixture of rock, Swedish folk fiddling and minimalist drones and riffs. After 1968 both groups expressed a critical perspective on Western society and capitalism, and became leaders in building "the progressive music movement", which during the 1970s was a strong alternative force in Swedish music alongside subsidised art music institutions and the commercial music industry.
