Well... there probably _are_ Finnish dates. Nina told me during the
interview that the single "Sick & Tired" had been released in England,
France, Denmark, Finland and Japan. A probable tour would cover these
countries. She mentioned 4 (uncertain yet) gigs in Japan. So check
them local gig lists!

Subject: Blithe - Verse Chorus Verse

Here's a small review of a CD I bought today:

     BLITHE "Verse Chorus Verse" - A West Side Fabrication 1995 - WeCD 093

              Tracks: I Guess Yes                   Haven
                      Now You Know                  Losefer
                      Hell Of Man                   Allegiance
                      Mother Goose                  Mind Dent
                      Hardliner                     Man/2
                      Spring Clean                  Early Risers

              Time: 40:04

  First impression: they sound like before. No changes since "Head Is Mighty".

  Second impression: hmm, what's this? 'Allegiance' in a soft version? On
  the A West Side compilation "We're All Part of a Family" that song is a lot
  tougher, harder, more guitars, faster. Here it sounds like they completely
  removed the bass, the electric guitars, the things that made it work before.
  A shame really.

  Third impression: they are a lot softer than before. Sometimes. There are
  a couple of tracks that are _hard_, like 'man/2', 'hardliner' and 'hell
  of man'. Some tracks are soft, like 'allegiance', 'mother goose' and
  'I guess yes', 'spring clean' and 'early risers'. Some still on the edge
  of bursting into raving guitar-walls, which 'I guess yes' do at times.
  Then there are Blithe-tracks like 'haven', wonderful pills like 'now you
  know', 'losefer' (if there will be a single from this one, I bet 'losefer'
  will be the title-track.) 'mind dent' reminds me of early blithe.

  Total impression: I like it. blithe-fans will too. A new audience? I
  don't think so. They won't reach other people than their already steady
  base of fans around the world with this one, because it's _blithe_, and
  it really sounds like _blithe_ all over. I have no idea how many copies
  they usually sell, but I can't see this one doing better than their
  earlier ones, and I'm not sure they want it to either. They make their
  music, for those who finds it brilliant, like me, like their fans.
  They didn't do a "Bear Quartet" with this one, and I'm happy about that.

  My personal score: 3+ out of 5 points.

Subject: Waterbug Interview 06-Apr-95

Short interview with "Waterbug" 06-Apr-95 - by Erik Soderstrom after a gig at
"Herrgar'n", Linkoping, Sweden. (v1.0)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Waterbug are:

        Pelle Hedlund (drums)             Rickard Nilsson (vocals)
        Patrik Jonasson (bass)            Anders Rasmusson (guitar)
        Robert Nilsson (vocals & guitar)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
(if the answer is "A." it was answered by someone. If the answer came from
 someone special, the initials are written.)

Q. WHAT DID YOU THINK ABOUT THE GIG TONIGHT?
RoN. Fun. A lot of people. But we had horror visions about this place before
     we came here. We imagined it'd look like a living room! But it didn't.
     The stage was a bit different though. It swayed. But it was okay anyway. 

Q. DID THE HOCKEY SM FINAL CREATE ANY PROBLEMS?
RoN. No, it suited us fine (and the right team won too!), we started to play
     about 15 minutes after the match so that the hockey-fans had enough
     time to get here [laugh]. 

Q. WHAT SONGS DID YOU PLAY?
A. 'Pedestrian Beware', 'Arizona', 'That Sound', 'Lost In The Pancake',
   'Buttersinger', 'Insanity' 'Hollywood', 'Farewell', 'Birdnest'
   and 'Meatballs', 'Bigamy', 'Yellow' (the extra number).

Q. ARE YOU TOURING RIGHT NOW?
A. Well we're playing in Norrkoping 15/4, Emmaboda 21/4, Vaxjo 22/4
   and in Gothenburg on the 13/5 on the Rock For Angola festival that
   Ung Vanster are responsible for. Other bands there will be Mufflon 5,
   Larry, Honey Is Cool, Salt, Broder Daniel, Blissful and Monsterrock
   (with members from Teddybears and Girlsmen among others).

Q. WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU'RE NOT PLAYING IN A BAND?
A. Pelle works as an educated daycare dad, Robert works as a guard.
   Anders is a mailman and the rest of us studies. Robert and Rickard
   are twins by the way. Rickard is the little brother though.

Q. WHEN DID YOU START AND WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
A. We're from Gothenburg and started around 1988 under the name Pull, after
   the text on the inside of cigarette packs you know? But back then we were
   only tree; Rickard, Robert and Anders and a drum machine (Roland TR 505).
   Actually, we were a band before that, with another member, but we won't
   go into that. Anyway, we had to take a break between every third song to
   re-program the drum machine. Pull... damn indie name, and we had a
   Manchester sound too. 1991, Patrik joined to play bass and sing. Then
   about spring 1993 Pelle joined and we formed Waterbug.

Q. WHY THE NAME WATERBUG?
A. Nothing special. We just took it. Maybe it's because Rickard and Robert
   like to fish a lot?

Q. WHAT DO YOU CALL YOUR MUSIC NOW?
A. Not indie! Pop-punk maybe.

Q. HOW ABOUT RELEASES?
A. We released our demo "Supercalyfragiliticexpialidocious" in the spring
   of 1993 and then we have our full-length CD with the same name which
   we recorded dyring november-december 1994 and it came out in february
   1995. We also have earlier demos of course.

Q. HOW ABOUT INFLUENCES / SONGWRITING?
A. Pavement, Flaming Lips, Pixies. Other than that it's pretty wide.
   All of us listen to most things except Eurodisco.

Q. WHAT DO YOU LISTEN TO RIGHT NOW?
A. The same things that we're influenced by.
PH. Robert's CD player is in a pawnshop at the moment.

Q. YOU'RE SIGNED TO A WEST SIDE FABRICATION. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?
A. We just sent the "Super.." demo in the spring of 1993. Jocke [the owner
   of West Side] got really excited and told us to 'continue to make music
   like that and you'll get a contract!'. So we recorded another demo
   (really well produced and perfect, we thought anyway) and sent it to
   him. He hated it. He thought it was over-produced, and it probably was.
   Then we thought we'd give it all up and do something else with our lives,
   but we recorded yet another demo, porta this time, that we thought was
   just plain shit, a lot of noise really. So of course he loved it and
   signed us on the spot. That was during the summer of 1994. 

Q. HAVE YOU BEEN FEATURED IN THE PRESS/TV/MEDIA?
A. A funny thing about how we got signed to West Side is that JF in
   Expressen [a swedish evening paper] loved the demo that Jocke hated and
   it was the other way around with the other demo. We were featured in
   Expressen before Jocke got the one he didn't like (which we thought he'd
   like), sort of like we would be signed to West Side next week, and Jocke
   read it and thought "what the hell is this?!".
PH. We've also been "Demo of the week" on Vapour Trail, a radio station
    in Gothenburg. As well as house gods! Maybe you know Ballde?

Q. YOU'RE ONE OF THE LATEST BANDS ON THE WEST SIDE LABEL....
A. Yeah, we and Blissful are really the _last_ ones for a while. Jocke
   is not signing any new bands now. His stable is pretty much full,
   and his resources are limited as you probably now.

Q. WHAT FESTIVALS WILL YOU BE PLAYING THIS YEAR?
A. Emmaboda, Trastocksfestivalen, Ljungby and probably Hultsfred as well
   (they've been telling us we'd play there for a year now).

[They passed out some Emmaboda Festival 1995 cards, and one of them had a
 Emmaboda Festival 1995 t-shirt with him.]

Q. ANYTHING YOU'D LIKE TO FINISH THIS INTERVIEW WITH?
RoN. Ha ha! Yeah. When Rickard and Anders were rail-roving in the spring
     of 1991 they saw Johnny Marr at a hamburger restaurant in England.
     They had a copy of NME with them, and had to check it to make sure
     it was him. 'Is it really him?' 'Yes! Give him a copy of the demo!'.
     So they did. We haven't heard from him though. Ha ha. If you listen
     to 'Meatballs' you hear a line there about it too. It goes like
     "I met Johnny Marr at a hamburger bar".

A. We have to drive home tonight (300 kilometers)! Some of us has to
   work tomorrow. It'll take about 4 hours to drive because we have a trailer.

This is what Bob Fay's gf Anne Slinn wrote in reply to my question about
Sebadoh playing Emmaboda or not. For you who don't know, Bob is playing the
drums for them... So I find Sebadoh playing Emmaboda 99% for sure
being _quite_ an exaggeration.

Subject: Murmur /introduction

Does anyone know how status is on the first Murmur (from Copenhagen) album.
It was supposed to get out in november 94 but for some reason it did not.
So I would be thankfully if someone could provide me with more info.

I feel a bit handicaped when it comes to Scandinavian indie music here
in my temporary position in Colorado, so I hope this list will give me
some of the input I dont get at at the moment.

I've been on the uk-indie list for nearly a year now, and I hope this will
be at least as inspiring...

Favourite Scandinavian band at the moment (ot within the last 1/2 year):
Murmur (DK) Exterme noise, but somewhere down there at least I'm able to
            find songs. Not everyone would give me right.... But they was
            still better a year ago before they got a male singer :(
Death Tothe (DK) (something tells me that the spelling are wrong, damn)
                 They are competing with Picnic for the title "the weidest band
                   in dk". Are famous for their use of helium and strange 
                  things as instruments"
18th Dye (DK) King of Noise Pop.... Their singles have been a succes in UK
How Do I (DK) Crossover between REM and Orbital according to themself
Picnic (DK) The weidest band in DK, maybe they sound like a crossover between
            RHCP and Residents ?? ;-) See them live if you get the chance
Bel Canto (N) Hurrah, I just managed to find their two first albums for 6$ :) 
Biosphere (N) Phatasnik is amsing. Geir is a genious ;-)
Velvet Belly (N) Don't know much about them, but the songs i've have heard was
                  ace. Please give me more info
Cardigans (S) Maybe a bit to poppy, but I guess that one of my swedish 
               roommates have convinced me ;-)

This was maybe not the best list I could come up with due to the time of the 
day /night...but what the heck.

Looking forward to an overflooded mailbox, from good ole Scandinavia

Should we try to keep it on the mailing list ;-)

Yeah, I don't know where I had left my brain tonight. I have totally forgot
Iceland, even though I'm one of the biggest fans of the cubes (or should
we call them sykurmolarnir ;-)  ). I've picked up the KUKL records plus
some more rare stuff (at least in Denmark) as Tappi Tikaras and Purrkur 
pillnikk. I saw Reptile some years ago, so I didn't knew they still was 
playing. Do you have any idea where I can buy Reptile records. I think I 
browsed through any record shop, 3 years ago with no result :(

Of the newer stuff can I say that I heard a tune with Unun. And I think
it kept me dancing for a week in the computer lab back at the university
in Denmark. I don't know if people are aware of the Bad Taste web server.
But it's awesome that you can download soundclips from these unknown groups
(I bet the icelandics would call most of the danish groups unknown too ;) )

The address is
http://www.centrum.is/badtaste/

As I did mention in my previous post, I have to deal with the nordic
indie scene on remote, since I'm in Colorado for half a year (just outside
Denver... Golden if it have any meaning for anyone). There is a lot
of concerts here, but I think I will be sick of american guitar rock
before the end of the summer.

Bad taste should have the LP and a single with Reptile.  I on the other
hand have a recording of them from the Icelandic radio in 92.  Then they
had a new lineup, the sax-girl gone and an accordian player replaced her.
And the new songs ..greeaaat!  Unfortunately Reptile quit soon after this
gig cause the singer/violinist Magga was pregnant.

um, hey there.

i've only been on this list for a week or so and i am just so surprised 
how little is going on here. i don't mean to put anyone down or anything, 
i am just amazed as the scandinavian indie-music scene seems to be 
everything but dead. well, i could be wrong as i am not all that into 
scan-indie music, but, what i've read etc. the indie music in scandinavia 
should be pretty alive and well. 

anyway, doesn't anyone have any anything to say about the 
music-festivals that are taking place this summer? 
what about the line-up for the hultsfred festival? roskilde? emmaboda?	  
anyone?

i, myself, are quite excited about the fact that both hulstfred and 
especially emmaboda are bringing a few american indie bands over here to 
stop the complete domination of boring-british-bands. 
i don't know, i hope that i am not too off-topic here. if so, sorry 
for wasting bandwith.

I just went through the subscriber list, and I'm afraid you're the
only Icelander on the list. Maybe I should send some "ads" somewhere?

> Icelandic bands to look out for: Unun (pop)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but today I heard some news about the
Sugarcubes on the radio, saying they were putting the band back
together again, though without Bj|rk. They mentioned the new name
of the band, which I almost didn't hear, but what I heard sounded
just like "Unun"....

Am I fooling myself or did I hear it right?

Sounds horribly interesting! What label are they on? I'd like to hear more
about them.

I suspect the bunch of norwegians on the list can provide the info?
If not, they have been mentioned a couple of times on the list before.
I'd recommend the old Digests if you're desperate for info. :)

You ought to try to find something with Puffin, The Bear Quartet, Shredhead
and Salt. All from Sweden. The first three are on A West Side Fabrication
and the last one on MVG Records. Probably hard to find over there though
(if not impossible). Maybe we should start a tape chain, like on the
4AD list? Anyone interested? I'm typing in an interview with The Cardigans
I made a few weeks ago though that you might be interested in. I'll post
it to the list as soon as I'm finished.

And it sure is too. Perhaps there's nothing to be said about them, but
I think a more accurate guess would be that most people are just reading
this list. Lurking around.

Well, I haven't heard anything about the Roskilde festival, but I'm really
happy about Beastie Boys, Monster Magnet, Hedningarna (again!), Cardigans
(again!) and Honey Is Cool playing the Hultsfred festival. I'm pretty
disapointed about the Emmaboda festival though. Compare it with last
years line-up, and you know what I mean. And even though it's 2 days
this year! I guess the ones I'm looking forward to see there are only
Yvonne, Refused and Waterbug.

I don't know about that though.. I'd like to see Slowdive, Charlatans,
Cranes, Verve, Adorable (if they were still together), Stone Roses,
Curve (if they were still together), Revolver (if they are still alive?),
My Bloody Valentine (if they are still alive), Pale Saints, Lush,
Cocteau Twins and so on, playing ANY swedish festival this year. Last year,
Verve at Hultsfred was the highlight for me at least. Then again, I'd like
to see American bands like Poster Children, Super 31, Orange, Smashing
Pumpkins, Juliana Hatfield, Matthew Sweet and so on, as well.

No no, you're not at all. It's good to get some sort of discussion
going on this otherwise semi-sleeping list.

Am I the only one who is really excited about getting to see Archers of
Loaf??

Subject: Cloudberry Jam

Just thought I'd let you all know that the new CD from CLOUDBERRY JAM
is out and available. The version I saw had a sticker on the front
saying that:

 "The last five songs listed in the booklet are _not_ included on this
  disc and were never intended to be."

It had 17 songs listed in the booklet, and with the above sticker,
I gather it contains 12. I didn't buy it today though (short of cash)
and I can't remember the name of it, but it's out anyway. :)

I seem to remember we had someone connected to the Chalmersrock
on this list? Now that some bands are listed to play this year,
could that someone let the rest of us know the line-up? Even if
it's preliminary, it would be nice to know something about it.
Date, Place etc as well?

 Thanks!

By the way, tickets to the Hultsfred Festival are being sold as of
yesterday (or the day before that). I have no idea how much they
cost though. Anyway, they're available now.
