The man who would be king is Rudyard Kipling’s story of a man who is brought down by his megalomania. From Norway comes an opposite story: I was a king is a band that demonstrates just how brilliant music can be made if one is a little easygoing about it. The band’s eponymous long-play debut is this winter’s most anticipated and hyped release. Judging by the critics the album is no less than a pop miracle. Out now (12. Jan) the record is already characterised as one of 2009’s milestones. We had a talk with Frode Strømstad about the making of the 31-minute miracle.
