Review and live pictures by: Anders Sandvall
2010 was the year when this festival broke all its records and was totally sold out. I had never seen so many people at this festival during all the years I have attended it. The festival is held in a small town located a few miles outside Malmo and last year had the festival attracted 15000 paying visitors. Why there were so many people last year could depend on the fact that last year was the last time the festival was held at the same place as every year. A school building is now under construction and the festival area has been narrowed down heavily. Instead of the three stages, the organizers narrowed it down to two stages.

CONNY BLOOM AND A.C CHRISTELL
On April 12th, 2009 the eighth sold out gig in only six days, at the legendary Tavastia Club in Helsinki, concluded the series of farewell performances by HANOI ROCKS. After putting out three albums, TWELVE SHOTS ON THE ROCKS in 2002, ANOTHER HOSTILE TAKEOVER in 2005 and STREET POETRY in 2007, since reuniting, Andy McCoy and Michael Monroe have decided to call it a day.
To coincide with the farewell tour, a book entitled "All Those Wasted Years" has been released, but since it hardly scratches the surface concerning the more recent stages of the band we decided to sit down for a chat with current guitarist Conny Bloom and bassist Andy Christell. Both also share a long history in connection with HANOI ROCKS, having already toured alongside them in the 1980’s with THE ROAD RATS [also featuring ex-HANOI ROCKS drummer, Gyp Casino]. In addition to HANOI ROCKS and THE ROAD RATS, Conny Bloom and Andy Christell have played and reaped success together in ROLENE and most importantly the, now reunited, ELECTRIC BOYS.
