GEIR RAKVAAG - DE LILLOS – HJERNEN ER ALENE
de Lillos had taken Norway by storm. The debut record Suser avgårde was a success, the whole country knew "Tøff i pyjamas" by heart, and the intense tournament had turned the trio into a hot live band. After the sequel Før var det morsomt med sne , in 1989 it was time for album number three. It now turned out that Lars Lillo Stenberg's well was endless, because Hjernen er alen e- with the profound singles "Hjernen er alene" and "Sveve over byen" at the front - was a double album without weak moments.
