Malurt

Malurt

Profile:
Major league Danish rock band fronted by Michael Falch, active 1977-84 and after a reunion again during 1990-94. Released debut album Kold Krig in 1980 on minor label Amar Records with little attention but had an instant breakthrough with second album Vindueskigger and the hit-single "Superlove". To cash in on the success, their debut album was re-released on their new label, Medley Records. Following disagreements with leader and main songwriter Falch in 1982, Peter Viskinde and Henrik Littauer left the band and turned their side-project Doraz into the full time band. They were replaced by Pete Repete and Falch's childhood friend Christian Arendt. During a 1982 concert in KB Hallen in Copenhagen, Malurt was joined on stage by a Falch's major inspiration, Bruce Springsteen, and they performed "Hungry Heart" together as documented on the Springsteen bootleg "By The River". After the release of a live album, Live - Kys Mig Før Jeg Blir Cool, recorded during their 1984 spring tour, the band broke up and Falch immersed on a successful solo-career. In 1990, as Falch's solo career was fading, Malurt reunited in the original line-up minus Littauer. In 1992 they released the Thomas Helmig produced comeback album Spøgelser to critical acclaim and fine sales, followed by less successful Ghetto the year after. To this day, the band has not officially broke up.
