When released in 2013 the Spids Nogenhat album Kommer Med Fred (roughly translated to We Come In Peace) no one could know it would turn into the most popular release on Bad Afro Records in many years. But it did. The band became very popular in Denmark winning two Danish Music Awards (Grammies) for Best live band of the year and Best Rock album of the year and playing sold out shows. They also received two Steppeulven (the association of critics at the Danish newspapers) awards for Best band of the year and Best Live band of the year. Spids Nogenhat have their own take on how psychedelic rock should sound and are deeply rooted in Danish acid rock of the early 70's that somehow had a special sound compared to what was happening in the rest of the world at the time. The band is featuring members of Baby Woodrose, On Trial, Dragontears and Vilde Græs. Oh yes, Spids Nogenhat means liberty cap - the most potent mushroom in this part of the world. This 8th print of the album is limited to 500 copies on clear vinyl. October 25st Spids Nogenhat will release their second studio album entitled "Kommer Med Fred" (roughly translated to We Come In Peace). Spids Nogenhat have their own take on how psychedelic rock should sound and are deeply rooted in Danish acid rock of the early 70's that somehow had a special sound compared to what was happening in the rest of the world at the time. The lyrics are in Danish and the album contains 7 original songs and a cover version of "Den Gennemsigtige Mand" by Furekåben. Spids Nogenhat (which translates to the magic mushroom Liberty Cap) was originally formed as a side-project in 1998 by Henrik "Hobitten" Klitstrom, Morten "Aron" Larsen and Uffe "Aramis" Lorenzen (Lorenzo Woodrose) who at the time all were part of the Copenhagen based band On Trial. A band that since has led to numerous offshoots like Baby Woodrose, Ghost Rocket, Dragontears, Black Beacon Orchestra, Aron and lately Blind Owl & Good Spirits. Spids Nogenhat was inspired by Danish acid rock bands from the early 70s like Alrune Rod, Rode Mor and De Fortabte Spillemænd and played a few shows in the early years as an accustic guitar trio. In 2001 they released their debut album "En Mærkelig Kop Te" (A Strange Cup of Tea) on Orpheus Records that did not receive much attention at the time but since then has grown into a serious cult album with several reprints on vinyl. The band resurrected in 2009 after public demand now including Anders "Moody Guru" Skjodt and Anders "Fuzz Daddy" Gron, who both were in the original line-up of Baby Woodrose along with Lorenzo, and Sebastian "Zeppo" Bülow who contributed with the great visuals that always give a special vibe to the Spids Nogenhat shows. A legendary concert at Roskilde Festival in 2011 later turned into the live album "De Sidste Her På Jorden" from 2012. Bad Afro Records will release the long awaited follow up album to "En Mærkelig Kop Te" October 21st 2013.
