Nakkeskudd will not be operative until august!

Yes, its true, I wont do this anymore. I have taken this summer off to think about it,
and I have come to the conclusion that its time for this project to die.
And it all felt natural ending it with my own band.
I got he chance to end this together with some of my best friends
and doing it as a cooperation with some of the nicest labels in Norway,
where several of them are what I consider personal friends of mine.

I haven't discussed this with anyone. I haven't even mentioned it to anyone until now.
Its a hard decision to take, but the label isn't what I want it to be anymore.
I have had a lot of ups and downs, even some really hard times where the only thing that kept
me from folding was the everlasting support from Christel, my wife.
But this time she wont get a chance to stop me.
Its over, because I have come to a point where I cant follow up on everything as much as I want,
so I end up with the feeling that Im letting bands and people down.

Taking too long time for me replying to mails, spending too many nights wrapping up records
that was supposed to be sent out earlier. Neglecting my family or the recordabel,
and its a easy decision to take when I have to choose. Blood comes first.

Nakkeskudd has been a huge part of my life since 2004 and at the moment I cant see a life without it.
But it has to go. It is destroying my night sleep. It has taken a toll of my personal financial situation, it has cost me friends,
it has probably given me some enemies as well. And I will stop this project before it has an impact on whats closest to me.

But shit, it has given me a lot of good times, life-long friendships and the feeling that I have actually had an impact.
Mostly in the norwegian part of the DIY punk and hardcore culture, I hope and think. I have realized over time
that I don't feel that Im doing this right anymore, and if you don't do it right, just don't do it.
People will be let down, people will be angry and this structure and network we are building
will be torn apart if we don't do it right. And I want to do it right.

My heart will still beat for DIY and hardcore punk.


And in the end, I want to give a big thank you to all the bands I have worked with and released,
its been a great journey, and I still feel honored that I got the chance.

Maybe one day I will start something new under an new name and a new profile, but nothing is set.
Im just done with this for now.

Nakkeskudd Plater, rest in peace. 27 releases, its been one hell of a ride!
