Hello Arni
Greetings from Denmark
. Thanks for a brilliant site.


Mick Karn


My name is Øivind Petersen and I live in Denmark. I was born in 1967 in Copenhagen, and live in Grenaa. I started playing bass in 1986 and fretless in 89 and I have been trying ever since.

Players I admire and listen to:

Percy Jones.
Pino Palladino. (early stuff)
Guy Pratt.
Steve Greetham. (Annabel Lamb)

Derek Forbes. (Simple Minds)
Paul Webb. (Talk Talk)
And many many others.

I started playing to records with Joy Division, Spandau Ballet, Killing Joke, Roxy Music, Duran Duran, Wolfgang Press, Cabaret Voltaire, Danse Society, Japan and the Cure. My favorite player is Mick Karn. He was, without a doubt, the most interesting fretless bass player ever. Try the Dalis Car album "The waking hour" and you will know why he is my favorite.
