index / music — John Conch,  My Bald Head and You,  The Nellie Monk
Sweden Songs by The Nellie Monk, 2004
In 2004 I recorded an album under the name The Nellie Monk. I was 20 years old, living in a village of fewer than 300 people in Sweden, during the wintertime. I'd moved to a place called Trädet (which means, literally, "that tree"), to be with a Swede, who told me, a few days after I arrived, that he just wanted to be friends. I spent that winter-hell in a 100-year-old house with eleven empty rooms. It had to be heated by a wood-burning furnace in the basement. There were always frogs in the shower because it was the only place with unfrozen water anywhere.
