This is Not A Love Song, Part II: Christer Strömholm

This is not a love editorial. Somehow, this wants to be a sort of an introduction into another world, where, love exists, don’t worry, but, in other forms, more rudimental, more vivid, more natural, without that tricks you are seeing, daily, on TV or which airs on the Radio Station, tender and sweet and namby-pamby shity songs. To be short, we are searching for the unconventional face of love. We will introduce you some sort of artists who see this feeling – love – with those eyes that we wanted to see too. You will see what is all about and we hope you will enjoy our unconventional love.
