    Jansson sits somewhere between Tom Waits and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, but alone on stage, with his guitars, amplifiers and drums. It’s pure nordic noir and it sounds earthy and that’s rather appropriate, since he’ll perform in Meinier/ Geneva after an aperitif of local produce.

    Little Aston has a big heart. Especially for stones. Big, small, cold or sad, no stone is safe from him and needs his affection. A story about seeing and appreciating the value in little things. But also how easy it is to love each other.
