Träd, Gräs och Stenar: A Collective History

The greatest rock doc never filmed, Träd, Gräs och Stenar: A Collective History chronicles the continual evolution and rebirth of Sweden’s hard jamming ambassadors of free-range psych. Part art book, part oral history, the book puts you smack in the thick of TGoS’ heyday, as testimony from group members and close associates comprise a vivid composite portrait of the collective’s life in the Swedish underground and beyond.

Träd Gräs och Stenar :: I Can’t Get No Satisfaction

In their native Swedish, Träd Gräs och Stenar translates to ‘Trees, Grass, and Stones,’ and the communal psych jammers never hesitated to emphasize the third part of their moniker. The band’s reading of “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction” from their 1970 debut isn’t so much a cover as it is a transfiguration—the angsty pean to teenage boredom shifting and morphing entirely into an primeval, elemental dance of the midnight sun.
