Plumbo

Plumbo     1244512-12-1312462358125

Song: Ola Nordman        English

This is the story about a type of guy                                                                                                     Yes, one that is not like any other
He has a backpack and cap on
It’s about looking good when you’re wandering
A man who always carries on his heritage
A man with humor and charm
Swing your glass old friend
Ola Nordmann*
It’s nice to see you again
And the conversation doesn’t stop with Ola Nordmann
You are always welcome again
The sea is his friend
In the deep and blue
It’s apparent that he has salt water in the blood
He travels out in weather and wind, it’s what he just has to do
And back home he is with food on the table
A man who travels to others as guest
Being abroad is good but home is best
Swing your glass old friend
Ola Nordmann
It’s nice to see you again
the conversation doesn’t stop with Ola Nordmann
You are always welcome again
What he likes best is is new technology
He has an iPhone, flat and Nintendo Wii     (flat=tv)
Swing your glass old friend
Ola Nordmann
It’s nice to see you again
the conversation doesn’t stop with Ola Nordmann
You are always welcome again
(Ola Nordmann)
(See you again!)
(Ola Nordmann)
You are always welcome again.

Plumbo is a slightly old band in my opinion mostly because it started in 2002 and so far has had 8 members and a mascot. Lars Erik Blokkhus is one of the original founding members and is the vocalist and guitarist, Tommy Elstad is the bassist and on the chorus and another of the founding members. Glenn Hauger is one of the new ones that entered in 2010 and is a songwriter, and plays melodeon which is a smaller accordion. Tor Erik Knutsen is the drummer and another one in the chorus. They had a mascot called the Plumbo animal but as of now is missing. And now the ones that used to be in the band but left.

Reidar Fiskebøl was the original drummer but left in 2005. Dag Arve Sadnes was another guitarist. Nils Magne Pettersen on Keyboard he joined in around 2003 and he called the quits in 2008. Hasse Rønninge is another drummer, and chorus who joined in 2006, and had a break in 2007 and quit in 2012.

This band’s musical focus is traditional twist rock music. It had somewhat of a scandal in 2010 when in an award ceremony made a comment to another famous band called madcon which was supposedly mistaken for racism when Lars Erik Blokkhus called them “Mokkamen” which can be a euphemism for Black guy. Anyhow I still find most of the songs they make entertaining because of the mix of rock and traditional and strong vocals. And I honestly I don’t listen to Norwegian songs that much at all.

Other than that that I hope you enjoyed my little presentation and opened another musical listening option for all of you fellow students.
