Biography

Steppeulvene (Danish for ‘The Steppenwolfs’) was a Danish rock band which despite its short life has become the icon for the Danish hippie music scene. Their only album Hip (1967) was the first rock album with original Danish lyrics, and has attained near-mythological status in the history of Danish rock.

The group was the result of a collaboration between lead singer Eik Skaløe, who had traveled in the Orient in the early 1960’s and wrote the Bob Dylan-inspired, highly symbolic and almost surreal lyrics, and Stig Møller (guitar, vocal), who wrote the drawling, psychedelic, folk-influenced music. The other members were Søren Seirup (bass) and Preben Devantier (drums). The name of the group was taken from the novel Steppenwolf by Hermann Hesse.

In 1967 Eik Skaløe headed towards Afghanistan/Nepal to participate in The Hippie Trail, and though the rest of Steppeulvene tried to continue creating music without him, this became the end of Steppeulvene after some few concerts. Eik mysteriously comitted suicide near the border of India and Pakistan leaving just a note behind; “To the officials: This is a suicide. There is no one to blame but the evil person inside me. Yours truly, Eik Skaløe”

    Bare man kunne rette i "similar artist", det er jo helt underligt at Malk De Koijn står som en sådan, og så den allerførste! Så minder Bob Dylan da en del mere om Steppeulvene, og selvom det er på et andet sprog :D

    Hvis ikke den bedste danske plade nogensinde - så i hvert fald i top 5. Nøøj en åbenbaring første gang jeg stiftede bekendtskab med Eik og stig møller :D!
