Ett Minne foer Livet (A Memory for Life) was a muscian's collective in Stockholm during the seventies, part of the progressive music movement in Sweden.

Iskra, Spjaernsvallet, Vargavinter, Archimedes Badkar, Bitter Funeral Beer Band and Bolon Bata were some of the bands taking part, giving concerts on their own and together. We even put out some LP:s under the "Ett Minne foer Livet" label.

Bengt Berger and Kjell Westling were two of the central musicians during this time, playing in several of the groups. We did a live radio broadcast in 1977 and released it on our label. The music we played is improvised, restless and of very high density (many notes in short time). Not exacly easy listening, but give it a try - you might like it.
The album Bengt Berger & Kjell Westling: Live in Stockholm 1977 will be the released at the second Country & Eastern Night at Fasching in Stockholm on october 6, 2008.
