Loitered Lens : Amund Maruud

Imagine the King, frenzied and fuelled up on booze and bop pills whilst performing the main dance sequence of Jailhouse Rock – that was the show that blurred before us

Lured by the promise of overpriced guest beers and the beckoning finger of the fairground gypsy-esque type promotor, Amund Maarud was definitely the hidden Norwegian gem behind the musty velour curtains of the achingly hip Islington (not The Academy).

Surprisingly, Amund seemed to channel the rock and fucking roll spirit of Billy Idol and the ghost of a young Elvis whilst belting out some really hard hitting rock and blues.

Imagine the King, frenzied and fuelled up on booze and bop pills whilst performing the main dance sequence of Jailhouse Rock – that was the show that blurred before us and I was all the better for witnessing it.
