Dwayne Sodahberk is the alter ego and main channel of releasing the music of Daniel Söderberg since 1999.
Celebrating those fifteen years and hammering the final nail in Dwayne's coffin is a new compilation of unreleased pop songs, older and newer, that didn't find their way onto an album.
Dwayne Sodahberk started out as an electronic solo artist and ten years later ended up being a rock band. But there has always been something immediately recogniseable as Dwayne about the music, often a mix of brutality and beauty, no matter what genre it's dressed in.
The first Sodahberk releases were electro-ish CD-Rs and crackling minimal electronica 12"s on Stuporsonika. After some tracks on compilatons from Average records and Swayzak recordings I met kid606 and started releasing records on his Tigerbeat6 label. Around 2002-2003 I toured a lot together with kid606 and sometimes also DJ/rupture. The first tb6 releases were wild and unpolished electronica, later semi-electronic pop songs and the last album on tb6 is more or less noise rock. When the music beacame less electronic I toured some with canadian band Picastro and released an LP on Kning Disk. Same year as the last album I made a noisy split-CD-R with Tsukimono back on Stuporsonika.
The first years it was a solo act, then my brother Johan Söderberg and later my friend Per Hellquist joined for live shows. Finally Henrik Olsson joined on drums and these are also the same band members that would form Harr.
On the records I've collaborated with several people; Liz Hysen from Picastro sang and played violin on several tracks. Vocals have also been done by Maria Eilersen from Revl9n, Honey Owens and Maria Kihlberg. Erik Qvick played drums on a song while I was in Reykavik recording guitar and electronics for his own album. Max Turner raps on the "Giant of Patience" single and also on one live show. Robert Hefter joined in with Per Hellquist on some sound experiments on the album "Unfortunately", and Robert also played guitar on a couple of live shows in Berlin.
Another contribution from Per Hellquist is the "Brontofon" or optical loop machine, using loops of 35mm film as sound media, either with scratched rhythms on the sound track or cut up and/or reversed parts of the actual sound on the film strips.
