"231045-0637 is a rock album released in 1979 by Kim Larsen, a Danish rock musician.
When Kim Larsen was a member of Gasolin' he released three solo albums, Værsgo, Kim Larsen og Yankee drengene and Starfuckers: Vogt dem for efterligninger. All three albums are different from each other: Værsgo are sung in Danish with sparse orchestration; Kim Larsen og Yankee drengene are sung in English and recorded with American session musicians in Atlanta and Starfuckers is a casual and jolly live recording. The three albums proved that Kim Larsen was a valid musician in his own right.
231045-0637 (his personal identification number) was his first post-Gasolin' release, and it became a big seller in Denmark and confirmed his status as one of the best Danish songwriters. All 12 songs are very strong and Dagen før, 682 A, Blip-Båt and Ud i det blå are classic songs. The album (released in 1979) was recorded in Sweet Silence studios in Copenhagen and was produced by Nils Henriksen. The music on this album is unlike the hard rock of Gasolin' more poppish and is the start of the electronic sounds that would dominate his next records such as Jungle Dreams and Midt om natten. Musically 231045-0637 is a combination of the music he made in the seventies and the music he would make in the eighties."

I cant stop to listen these two fantastic albums! Thank you Svabdos for introduce me!:)
What a pity,i didnt find reviews or articles in english:(
Kim Larsen (born October 23, 1945 in Copenhagen) is a Danish rock musician.
Inspired by The Beatles and rock and roll, Larsen began as a songwriter and guitarist. In 1969 he met Franz Beckerlee and Willi Jønsson, and the three founded Gasolin' which, later joined by drummer Søren Berlev, became one of the most successful Danish rock bands. The band dissolved in the late 1970s and has always refused to reform although they remain very popular decades after their seventies heyday, which has contributed to their myth and magic. In 2006, the documentary movie Gasolin' directed by Anders Østergaard, gave the history of the band and became a big hit in Denmark.
In the 1970s, following trends found in North America and the United Kingdom, Danish popular music styles began to diverge and audiences fragment. Many rock musicians in Denmark began to compose music and texts that reflected more realistic Danish social settings and ideals. Danish musicologist Charlotte Rørdam Larsen states that in the 1970s, Danish groups such as Kim Larsen's Gasolin' gave Danish music a special Danish rhythm and significance, linguistically, if not wholly distinct musically from international styles.
Kim Larsen released a number of solo albums in the eighties, topping in 1983 with the album Midt om natten (In the Middle of the Night), which became the most sold Danish music album in history, with more than 532,000 copies sold. In 1986, he founded the band Kim Larsen & Bellami and released four albums until 1992, when the band broke up. He then released another solo album, Hvem kan sige nej til en engel (Who Can Say No To An Angel). In 1995, Larsen moved to Odense, the main city of the island of Funen, and found new success with his new band, Kim Larsen & Kjukken and the Swedish producer Max Lorentz.
Kim Larsen has had a number of successful album releases throughout the 80s, 90s and 00s and is possibly the most successful artist in Danish popular music history. As a solo artist, Larsen has sold approximately 3 million records, a remarkable feat considering Denmark's total population of approximately 5.4 million people (as of 2005). In the 2000s Larsen remains a top concert draw and continues to be very popular in Denmark and Scandinavia.
