UNICORN (SWEDEN)


UNICORN show a different side to EDGE OF SANITY frontman DAN SWANÖ, the man going all Progressive. Hailing from Örebro, Swanö's influence on the Swedish music scene, besides his production work, includes involvement in other acts as diverse as PAN-THY-MONIUM, GODSEND, WOUNDED KNEE and NIGHTINGALE among others. UNICORN also involved guitarist / cellist Anders Måreby with Peter Edwinson of ATTENTION on keyboards. Early 1989 we recorded the first demo "A collection of worlds Part I." After that one we just went on rehearsing like crazy, and by the summer we had 3 new songs: "Yellow and Greg", "Exhibition of souls" and one of my personal Unicorn favorites "Visage". We recorded a pretty boring demo called "Tunes for the stork," which we decided to make unofficial after a while. New songs were written and we entered one of the finest periods of my life this far, the making of "A collection of worlds part II." There is something magical about that whole period. Some of the tracks just wrote themselves and we were all very happy about the fact that we had found our own style. We were as far away from commercial as you could be at that time and around the late autumn/winter of 1989 we recorded the second Collection demo. Anyway, after the release of "Collection II" we wrote more high quality tracks, stuff like "Zoetrope", "Tunes for the stork", "Messenger" and "The Fibsters Fictionland" just poured out of us. We recorded them as "The weirdest of tales". We never really did anything else than write tracks, record, and release them. Gigs we're not very frequent. The summer of 1991 we played the final show as a four piece and was guested by Mr. Tom Nouga on sax for our cover of "Shine on you crazy diamond". Then Anders moved to Örebro to study and I got more and more involved with the Death Metal side of things. Edge Of Sanity had released albums, toured and all, and it felt like Unicorn was going nowhere. We managed to record a demo as a three piece (After before) but it never really had an official release, because right in the middle of not knowing if we were a band or not, Mellow records offered us a record deal.
