Profiles of Jesper Madsen, Lars Kjelfred & Rasmus Skotte.
Rasmus H.C. Skotte
I'm 45 years old and I live in Copenhagen. I have been a Beach Boys fan since 1974. Then in 1994 I teamed up with fellow Danish fan Rene Hulz to write the first ever Compact Discography: The Rainbow Files (Beach boys on CD). In 1998 I began to really focus on the history of Smile. It was clear to me that a creative genius like Brian would never be able to completely abandon his dearest brainchild. Not in the following years and not even now. And of course Brian has now proved this to be right. Then later this year (on the 11/11) from a midnight revelation it struck me that Brian had created a blueprint or framework for a Smile song cycle as early as 1972 in Holland through his Mt. Vernon fairytale. Four years later I ran into Lars & Jesper in London's Royal Festival Hall!"
With Andrew Martin I did a docudrama about Brian and his early Smile developments, called: Daft Beach Movie". I can be reached through www.Smile Shop message board on "PM"s (send me a private
