'Alrune Rod' is the Danish name for the mythical mandrake root and was the name for one of the most popular hippie bands from Denmark. We have already released the first album from 1969 and the third album from 1972. 'Hej Du' is the amazing second album from 1971.
Their name 'Alrune Rod' was inspired by the Danish author Albert Dam's book 'Syv Fortællinger' ('Seven Stories') from 1962 where a Robin Hood-like character is sentenced to hanging. While hanging at the end of the rope with his trousers open, he ejaculates, and a mandrake root grows up from where his sperm hits the ground. Just like in sagas where it is the blood from hanged men that nourish the mandrake root on gallows hills. The root, which always has a human-like form, is collected in this novel by a virgin who cares for it and in turn the root makes good things happen.
Their musical style is often described as a hybrid between THE GRATEFUL DEAD and early PINK FLOYD.
This is their real masterpiece. By late summer 1970 Alrune Rod started recording their second album 'Hej Du' and were given unlimited studio time at Vanløse Bio. This was a movie theater that housed and operated 'Ivar Rosenberg Lydteknik' at night after the screening of the last movie. The studio was advanced for the time with a home-built multi-track tape recorder allowing for experimentation.
'Hej Du' was released in June 1971 with promotional concerts by the new Alrune Rod scheduled across the country.
Leif Roden later recalled that 'Hej Du' came on the radio charts for weeks during the summer of 1971 and sold a record high 12,000 copies. According to the chart lists, 'Hej Du' entered the bi-weekly top-10 album list on June 12th, 1971 and stayed there until August 4th, with a top position as #3 after Skousen & Ingemann ('Herfra Hvor Vi Står') and Doors ('L.A. Woman'). Economically it was also a success.
'Hej Du' is as close to an early Pink Floyd sound as any other album from Denmark. Fantastic production and great long trippy psychedelic tracks. A real masterpiece!
