Mailorder just might get started. Some of you may recall that some months ago I was talking about starting an international mailorder. I wrote letters to a handful of labels around the globe, but responses were so meager that I decided to can the idea and save my energy for my other pet project. By some misunderstanding I got a huge box of discs from North of No South today. With an invoice on the outside asking me to pay up within 30 days of delivery. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it. So far I've been too chicken to open the box, thinking that I may just have to send it all back to Sweden because I can't accept. But that would be horrible for all involved (esp. for the label and myself - postage isn't cheap!). So I'd much rather see if I can get some orders in advance of opening the box (I know what's inside) and give this story a happy ending. Titles and prices follow. And a few comments on the items I've heard. I'll do real reviews once I've actually heard everything. While I'm at it, I'll include a list of what's in my sale box. Mostly unpriced, so if you're interested in anything, just suggest a price that you think is fair (be good to yourself), or tell me what you're interested in and I'll suggest one. For US orders, p&p will be a flat $4 regardless of quantity. If you're outside the US, I'll figure out something for you. Please reply directly to me at: And now the lists: NONS CATALOGUE No: When: Who: What: Price: JAR1103 -90 TRIO LLIGO Bulldozerballader (LP) $9 JAR713 -90 TRIO LLIGO Rush our rap(7") $3.75 JAR301 -91 TRIO LLIGO Lika l=E4tt som ingenting(LP) $9 NONSCD01 -92 COMPILATION ONE Various(CD) $12.50 NONSCD02 -92 CLOUDBERRY JAM La la la (CDep) $7 NONSCD04 -93 KOMEDA Pop p=E5 Svenska(CD) $14 NONSCD07 -94 CLOUDBERRY JAM The art of being cool (CDmp) $9 NONSCD08 -94 RAY WONDER Hurray (CD) $14 NONSCD10 -94 RAY WONDER Superwonder (CDmp) $9 NONSCD12 -95 HONEYMOONS Louder (CDmp) $9 NONSCD14 -95 CLOUDBERRY JAM Blank Paycheck (CD) $14 NONSCD18 -95 TRIO LLIGO Same (CD) $14 NONSCD19 -95 RAY WONDER Get back inside (CDmp) $9 NONSCD20 -95 KOMEDA Plan 714 till Komeda (CDs) $7 NONSCD21 -95 SEASHELLS We rob banks (CD) $14 NONSCD23 -95 HONEYMOONS Domestic(CD) $14 NONSCD25 -96 COMPILATION Various (CD) $10 NONSCD26 -96 KOMEDA The genius of KOMEDA(CD) $14 NONSCD32 -96 CLOUDBERRY JAM providing the atmosphere (CD) $14 * The Seashells disc is tops. Hard for me to describe. Fast jangly ba-ba pop with ultra poppy drumming. For some reason NONS stuck two tracks from the Marsh-Marigold miniCD on it. That one is ace too. * Haven't heard the second Cloudberry Jam album yet. It's supposed to be very different from the first. Which was girl pop with it's jazz influences somehow fuzzed out. Sorry about the descriptions. I've got a splitting headache right now from too much excitement in one day. Hopefully someone will come to my aid now with a better description. I reviewed the first disc in this space a long time ago. * Ray Wonder - haven't heard any of these, but the comp track that I've heard is a bit like Eggstone, with psycho string arrangements and a grand piano tumbling down the escalator. * The Genius of Komeda is due out on Minty Fresh any time now, which may tell you something. MF seem to have great taste as far as liscensings go (Kahimi Karie, Cardigans), although outside of LJR I'm not at all sure about their domestic roster. Here's your chance to get the original version. Tracks I've heard have been whacky to say the least. The daftness of the Monochrome Set and Trattoria rolled up into a Swedish package. Some records are in Swedish, some in English, if that matters to you. Female and male vocals. * Trio Lligo had my favorite track on the Tambourine Studios comp. Accoustic guitar, cello and snare drum. That bangs along. The aggressive use of accoustic instruments reminds me of the Violent Femmes, but the track that I heard pure pop. Singing is in Swedish, which I don't understand, but I thought it sounded fantastic. * Haven't heard the Honeymoons at all, but James from Roundabout tells me that they sound like East Village (who I've also never heard) and Joerg at Mind the Gap told me they were good too. I've also got quite a few copies of Super "Spark" 3 song CD (Tangerine 007, Finland) A great record, if you like things Cardiganesque. I got these back when I was planning to go into business. Unfortunately most of the cases were damaged by the post (cracks in jewel cases), so the price is $6. I'm sure that you can get undamaged ones from Chris Jigsaw if you'd rather.

Alexander ---------------------------------- Date: Thu, 22 Aug 1996 13:15:09 +0200 From: Subject: Everclear @ Loppen Hello, I saw Marieband and Everclear last night @ Loppen in K=F8b, and the show was pretty good. The opening band, Marieband, is an all-chick, indie-punk quartet. I thought they were entertaining, reminiscent of a Danish Shonen Knife. I don't know much about Shonen Knife, but I think Marieband just started playing their instruments. I thought they were rad, and I'm not vibing them in anyway. I hope to see them again. Everclear put on a powerful set covering most of 'Sparkle & Fade' and some off their first album (I don't know the name). They were about 150 people who were really stoked and knew the lyrics to the popular songs; I was even surprised. The singer said that there were more people at the gig than the people who bought their album in Sweden. I saw Bracket, Hagfish and Everclear last summer in San Jose, CA. right when "Heroin Girl" was getting alot of airplay. About 2 weeks ago, Everclear played a gig @ the Warfield in San Francisco with 7 Year Bitch and some other bands and that costed like $26. That's how much you pay to see a David Coppefield act or a Def Lepard concert. So, it was rad to see a relatively big name in a small venue. Are there any subscribers from Kob? From Denmark?

The release date was still set to August 19th, but the promotion work was delayed which affected the release as well. On tuesday August 13th Uppsala Nya Tidning had an article about the band in the paper and the latest issue of Topp40 magazine reports that the album will also be released in South East Asia on a sub-label to Columbia Records. (Source: Scandinavian Indie) Backfish - (AWSF) members Anna and Kattis are currently involved in a film project. The film is called "Domino" and will be premiered by Christmas time this year. (Source: Scandinavian Indie) Beat Butchers - the punk/rock/pop label announce a fantastic oportunity to see a large number of Beat Butcher bands - all on the same night! The festivities will take place on October 12th, 1996 at Kolingsborg in Stockholm. There's no age limit, and all Beat Butchers bands that are able to play, will play! Ticket information, a time schedule and more information will posted right here as soon as possible. The label urges press and media to get in touch with them for press-, photo- or film-passes, as soon as possible - please send e-mail to: (Source: Scandinavian Indie) Beat That! - Records release a compilation CD called "Pop Nation - Best of Blekingska 94-96" on September 9th.

(Source: Scandinavian Indie) Blissful - (AWSF) have been roaming around in the studio the last few weeks, working on their upcoming album to be released in September. The studio is said to have looked somewhat like a warzone when they left it. Can this be a hint to what the album will sound like? (Source: Scandinavian Indie) Dune - was said to have been signed to Harry Lime Records in an earlier Selected News. This is not so. The band has _not_ been signed by Harry Lime. Sorry for any problems this error might have caused. (Source: Scandinavian Indie) Fidget - (Mega) are still in the studio, though everything is almost ready. The next week will be spent mixing everything, and then they are all set. The album release date has been moved to January next year, but a single will be released on October 14th, and if you're lucky, you might see them perform live in November when they plan to go on a short swedish tour. (Source: Scandinavian Indie) HappyDeadMen - (Trampolene) went back to the studio on monday this week to mix their upcoming album to be released sometime this autumn. They are very pleased with the recording and promise a wide variation of sound such as country, bossa, and "normal pop" with strings and trumpets. Their song on the upcoming Stockholm Label Group Japan-compilation CD is "Not The Only Sucker In Town" and was mixed already in April. (Source: Scandinavian Indie) Honeycave - with HappyDeadMen member Patrik Jonsfjord are on their way to be signed by Danish Mega Records. British labels have also shown interest in the band lately, but it looks like another swedish band (remember someone here saying that this might be some sort of sign a while back?) goes to Denmark. (Source: Scandinavian Indie) Shallow Soundwave - moves on and entered the studio on August 24th to start recording their new demo. This is of course very very good news - but the downside of it all is that the band can only afford to record it, but not make copies for distribution, at the moment! We're all hoping that this problem will be resolved soon though. The band has lost a member (bass) who moved to Malmo recently but that has not stopped the band and their plans to release a 7" on a german label and they might also release an EP on a swedish label later on, though please note that nothing is decided yet. (Source: Scandinavian Indie) Sound Affects - one of the best swedish pop magazines will release two more issues this year. The next issue is due on October 17th, and the second sometime in December. (Source: Scandinavian Indie) Starlet - (MVG) the latest band signed to MVG will be concentrating on touring in Sweden throughout 1996 only to make the drastic move to "move" to the US afterwards, where GreenTeam management (Salt, Fireside) will take care of them, and put them on the road there for a while. After that, and we're talking 1997 now, they'll come back to Sweden and make a nest in a studio, recording. The band consists of Camela Leierth (vocals, guitar), Johan Carlberg (guitar), Elias Modig (bass) and Ricard Nettermalm (drums). If you have followed the "Selected News", you might remember that Elias played with Mouth as a stand in for a while. That MVG and GreenTeam have taken this band under their wings is no wonder. A quick listen to an advance tape reveals a sound that is very close to Salt, both musically and vocally, only somewhat heavier, and with a touch of the orient. Truly a band to look out for, so keep your ears open! (Source: Scandinavian Indie) Watershed - (Elephant Tanks) from Stavanger in Norway started about a year ago. They have spent the past year writing songs and this has resulted in the demo "The Debbie Putmanns Recording" which contains 7 tracks and is 50 minutes long. The band lists such infuences as Afghan Whigs, Kyuss, Motorpsycho, Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr, which also might explain why they call their music "prog-lo-fi-pop".

I thought I'd better break the silence. The whole band were down at Pet Sounds in Stockholm last Saturday afternoon signing and drawing stuff for people on their CDs and LPs. I did the embarrassing fan-thing and queued up. That gave me time to spot the guy staring out from the cover and all the posters round town. He's Martin Kann, who designed all their covers and drew the original dog logo, and I got his autograph as well. He has amazing blue eyes, just as searching in real life as in the picture. As usual I'm hopelessly biased about bob hund, so your mileage may vary. This is a really great album, and it's better, I think, than the first one. Classic bob hund, a bit harder this time, similar to the stuff on the 'Ista"llet fo"r musik: fo"rvirring' EP, though none of those songs are here. For I think the first time, I hear moments in their music that sound familiar -- it's hard to place most of them, somewhere at the end of the seventies perhaps, or long before. An obvious example is 'Naanting maaste go"ras' ('Something has to be done'), which has a lot of the spirit and a bit of the melody of the Buzzcocks' 'What do I get'. If I were to pick a single here, that would be it -- radio-friendly with enough of an edge to keep the public on their toes. But then, there are at least four other quite brilliant off-kilter pop songs here: 'Upp, upp, upp, ner' (Up, up, up, down) a sad, dreamy thing, 'Reinkarnerad exakt som förut' (Reincarnated just like before), a spare but bouncy day-in-the-life story, 'Fo"rtra"ngda problem' (Repressed problems) is faster and harder (no brakes!), and 'Papperspaase' (Paper bag), bob hund's resigned and gentle comment on, well, life in a Swedish city. The lyrics are like the ones on 'Ista"llet fo"r musik: fo"rvirring', and not anything like as inscrutable as the last album. The unreality of normal life seems to be a sort of unifying theme, though it's quite often a bit hard to follow Thomas O"berg's train of thought. But still it's personal; there are lines here to take home and think about, or at least wonder about. I think with this album, probably without realising it, bob hund have taken a step closer to Kent's territory and shown that no matter how good Kent might be (and when they release that album in English, everyone will find out), bob hund have the creative edge over them. Bob Hund's fourth is a bit like Martin Kann's picture on the cover, a bit unkempt and confused and melancholy, but with deep blue eyes that follow you round the city...

Shit! The new album is out and i'm here in Portugal, zillions of miles from decent music!!! Honestly, there's a _lot_ of swedish music in the stores of Lisboa, i saw the full catalogue of In SLaughter Natives and the other CMI stuf (hi Marten!), and also quite a few other bands. Millencollin and the skate bunch are really big here. I coudn't believe it, the stores had posters on the walls of these OErebro kids!!! Besides that not much. OH, check out UK band Puressence. Albeit not "scan" their sound is amazing. Kinda early new order with strange pithed voice. Suave.

Thanx for the review, Robert. Will have to go and buy it as soon as possible. Just wanted to add that Bob Hund did an amazing gig on Sunday night at restaurant Kvarnen's yearly anniversary party. Maybe it was because it's a relatively small place, or maybe because I sat only 2 meters from the speakers, but they really surpassed themselves. I've never witnessed them being so explosive before, although I've seen them a few times. They played for about 40 minutes, songs like "Dusseldorf", "Dubbel tvekan", Ist{llet f|r musik: f|rvirring", "L{nge l{nge", "St{ll sk}pet i h|rnet gubbj{vel", and two more I didn't recognize and didn't get the names of (probably from the new album). Thomas did his dare-devil act as usual, balancing on tables and chairs. Nomads (with Staffan Hellstrand), Monster, and Silvermachine also played, but Bob Hund stole the show. ------------------------------ Date: Sun, 08 Sep 96 02:34:15 +0100 From: "Jens Agren" Subject: Rottingdean and Mutts... Hi! For those interested in new musical experiences I recommend listening to Musikjournalen Pop, P3 (Swedish Radio), this forthcoming Monday. I think it's about 7 PM. Musikjournalen's favourite band Rottingdean will be in the studio together with Mutts. Rottingdean is from Lund in southern Sweden. Check out their homepage for more info: Mutts is from Malmoe and is signed to Lund Records. Both bands are contributing songs to the compilation 'Popnation' (Beat That Records, sublabel to Energy Records) wich will be out in the shops on Monday. Other bands included are Honey Is Cool, The Cardigans, Souls, Brainpool, Superswirls, The Bear Quartet, Chevy, Colubrids, Loosegoats, Mazarine Street, Yvonne, Gluebellies, Cloudberry Jam, The April Tears, Tommy 16, Ludo X, S.P.O.C.K., Lustans Lakejer and A Shrine.

An album that got miles and miles of coverage in the press and the band seized a position as one of the best live bands from the US! Then followed "Manifest Destiny" and their third and last album "Bloodbrothers" 1978. Three albums, a great dose of rock history, something for all lovers of noisy rock history. Now, 18 years later, Dictators are back, and with a blast, original members: Handsome Dick Manitoba (vocals), Andy Shernoff (bass, song- writer), Scott "Top Ten" Kemper (guitar) and former Manowar-member Ross The Boss (guitar hero), plus newcomer Frank Funaro (drums). Together with Hellacopters from Sweden, Dictators (on their first Scandinavian visit) will make the Scandinavian rock scene unsafe again. The tour premiere is at Gino in Stockholm on October 2nd, with 8 gigs following throughout Scandinavia. At four of these gigs, swedish Garage kings Nomads will show up, just to turn these four nights into total party nights. 2/10 Stockholm - Gino + Nomads 3/10 Linkoping - Herrgar'n 4/10 Gavle - Club Latting 5/10 Borlange - TBA 6/10 Oslo (N) - Last Train 8/10 Lund - Mejeriet + Nomads 9/10 Goteborg - Underground + Nomads 10/10 Malmo - KB + Nomads 11/10 Copenhagen (DK) - Loppen For more information, interviews etc, call, fax or send e-mail!
