My loft is a mess. Recently I found some pictures from way back when.

In the 1970ies I was a member of the folk rock band Samvirkelaget. I also played with other groups. Here, I play flute on a student concert, 1979.

I was never that good on guitar, but could play my own songs, also.

In 1981, I published a book on the gender market (Sjekking, kjærlighet og kjønnsmarked), which sold well in Norway, and later in Sweden (1983). A press photo from that time:

In 1984, I was a participant in the Oslo carnival.

Not sure exactly what we were doing, but I remember that we were hoping to bring back more of the ‘1968 spirit’.
