LP MONUMENT.
MONUMENT AND SPACE  IN  THE  BRAIN  WAS  A  MULTIMEDIA  PRODUCTION  OF  MAGNITUDE  WITH  MANY  COMPONENTS.

THE  LP RECORD  BY  HANSSON&KARLSSON  WAS  ONLY  A  VERY SMALL  PART  OF  THE  WHOLE  STORY.

Janne Karlsson asked me 1967 if I would like to make a cover for a new LP he and Bo Hansson was  planning to do.
I said to him I did not have any interest of doing a Cover for them and I also said that I was planning to make sound/music to my artwork MONUMENT and later invited him and Bo to do the music. Further I said to him that he instead could do a plastic object/record to put inside my convolute! The contract we finally signed for the LP production was 100% shared with Polydor and I got payed equally for every sold LP for some years. I still have the legal contract but I do not receive any money, for some reason...
The music to the TV production MONUMENT was finally composed and mixed by me and Lars Weck.
I regret I did reject Pink Floyd who was writing to me for a co-operation - but why regret - I did not like the music they did anyhow 1967 and 1968.
The LP, MAN AT THE MOON  was done after the very same principal and  Bosse  Hansson and Janne Karlson was asked to make the soundtrack. Actually I have to drag Bo Hansson to the studio to get it done. After few days Bosse and Janne hated each other and arrive to the studio every second day. They listen to sound tapes of each other and the tapes was then mixed together. They did not even play in the same studio at the same time.

The idea Bosse got later about "Sagan om ringen" The Lord of the ring" actually derived from the thoughts of making a connection to a greater event like the APOLLO event,  and the  Man at the Moon. production.
Later named SPACE IN THE BRAIN.
MONUMENT was sold  in 25.000 copys that year. A very good seller for Sweden at the time.

All the publicity was mainly based on the videoart work MONUMENT as the work was televised in most European nations, like Switzerland, Italy, France, Sweden and Germany. The picture you can see below is the back of the LP record MONUMENT and NOT the COVER of the LP.
This is the Cover see below: *

The text written in the double convolute the LP - inside - is written by me and used at the Bo Hanssons websites:
"All you need  know..."
I also was the very first one to suggest Janne Karlsson to be an actor and I did explain Why: Your are a good drumplayer but you are not the only good one. You get all your gigs because you are a funny guy and very pleasant, thats why you get all the jobs. In the largest Swedish news paper it was published that we should start to make a TV serie named: "Scizo Femetti" and it was published a photograph of Janne, I did.  Janne and myself was working hard for a week in London to arrange a nation wide tour and we succeded while Bosse stay in the hotel playing around with an old radio in an attempt to repair it - for a whole damn week. I got an appointment with one of the greatest Aussie I ever met; Robert Stigwood (org) and he was very happy to arrange a tour around England. ( I remember Bo Hansson saying to Janne and me when we come back after a hard day: "You guys are just trying to make money on my talent" oh man.
The only gig they finally did was at the Swedish Embassy, a party night...bloody shit.

In my opinion it is ridiculous how things has  been described by the media in this matter. Equally  iT is very ridiculous how Beatles has been emphasized instead of the REAL Beatle; Brian Epstein.
Actually Brian Epstein could have used 4 other guys playing  music instead of the guys he worked with. He gave them the platform, and after its easy to expand !

Fuck this pop idols, lacking of substance!
It is childish how the World look at things!

The picture was published in Dagens Nyheter 1969 and

No REAL picture of this kind was never taken out in the space, at this very point in time.
