On a grey Tuesday afternoon Rune decided to quit college (Paul McCartney's Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, that is) to start a band. It was christened Number Seven Deli, after a delicatessen in Liverpool's Falkner Street number seven, the place he happened to find himself at the moment of this momentous revelation.

When he was given the choice between final exams and an unpaid gig with this new and all-but unrehearsed band at a run down (and literally empty, as it turned out) pub on the west coast of Norway, and, with a highly questionable sense of timing at best, actually went for the latter, there was no turning back. (Apparently, it felt just like "The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress", the way everything suddenly explodes after the long, slow start.)

With a shared devotion for three-part harmonies, as perfected by CSN, The Byrds, The Hollies, etc, and home made soup, Number Seven Deli quickly rose to the top of the food related pop music scene in Norway.

Under the slogan "pop music for sissy-pants" they were nominated for "Best live act", voted best unsigned band by national radio NRK P3, nominated for Norwegian Grammy for their first full-length album "Falkner Street" and scored massive radio hits with the singles "In The Wrong Arms" (originally written for songwriting class at college, but given the thumbs down), "I Used To Be Scared" and "Sweet Strawberry Wine".

The second album, appropriately (and not totally food-unorientedly) entitled "Seconds", a rawer and more rugged effort than it's predecessor, awarded the band yet another radio favorite in "Blame Me". Not to mention a beautiful video about some mischievous elderly people.

Number Seven Deli are currently finishing off the recording of their third album.
