1999, the second incarnation of the group. Kalderin and Cedemar reunited and reinvented Hammagrella as a home-studio project. Over the next six years tons of simple, lo-fi, most often unfinished, yet great songs were recorded and shared among fans on Internet Forums and places like MySpace and LastFM. The epic concept around small-town Grums was born and hits like “Ping-pong song”, “Orkney genius”, “Riktig restaurang” and “Tyska barn” was introduced to the audience.
After a break the band was reactivated in 2016 with two major activities; new home-studio recordings and a new live act. The recordings continued in the same style with “Radio Grella” and a new concept album around a lost LARP-gang, “Svegs Trälar”.
In parallel, the third incarnation of Hammagrella was born. With Mats Sandin as the driving force together with Kalderin and some experienced musicians, they started a new modern live version of Hammagrella. Picking some favorite Hammagrella songs from the past combined with brand-new songs, they are currently recording a studio album with only analogue instruments that is planned to be released in 2018.
