No one sends these spam messages to anyone personally. Just like everyone else, they send it to "" in order to reach all the subscribers, and that means that it is the _mailing list_, ie. Scandinavian Indie, that the message was about (saying that Scandinavian Indie was subscribed to that mailing list), and not you, Robert. All mailing lists are subjected to spam mail, some more than others, and Scandinavian Indie has been amazingly clean from this, for about 3 years, until the idiot found out that it existed a month or so ago. > We got quite a nasty bunch of spamming a couple of weeks ago, and this > is presumably only going to get worse. At the moment it looks like for > me, being here means risking a lot of nasty junk email. Yes, as it happens, this idiot (it's the same one every time) has made it his purpose in life to make sure that all mailing lists I handle must be killed, destroyed and removed from the net. Why? I have no idea, maybe I offended someone at some point in my life? > There are perfectly good ways of running lists so that this doesn't happen. I would like you to tell me about these ways, thank you very much. > So I think I'll unsubscribe in about a week if nothing has been done. A) You are perfecly welcome to change your subscription from the "normal" version, where it is necessary for everyone to be able to send messages to the list directly, to the "digest" version, where these spam messages are removed, even though this means that you will not receive the messages sent to the list directly, but have to wait until the amount posted to the "normal" list has reached about 40k - that's when a digest is sent out to the "digest" list subscribers. B) "if nothing has been done." - Please let me tell a short story. I have been running mailing lists for about five years. During these five years, spam mail has been sent to all of my mailing lists, some more than others. Every time, I have informed the various ISPs at the originating hosts about the problem, included the offending/commercial/ etc. spam mail complete with headers and message. After that, it is up to them to take care of the problem (ie. the idiot user on their system). And that is what I can do about it. I did change the address of one of my mailing lists once, and made it "moderated" - which was possible with that list, because it was not meant to be available for everyone to post to it, but that was when the spam messages dropped in a couple of times / day - and I did not see any other solution. If I were to make Scandinavian Indie moderated, it would mean that the whole list would be a "digest" version. And I don't think anyone would want that. C) Regarding every spam mail ever sent to any of my lists (including Scandinavian Indie) - feel free to contact me if you want copies of the messages I sent to the originator host ISPs and all their answers. Maybe that would convince you that I *do* something about it. To calm down some people, here are my messages to the ISPs and their replies regarding the last spam mail (I only include the answers from "" or else this message would be far too long): My Message about the "Smith Barney Mailing List" spam mail to the ISPs at,,, and the NFIC: > Subject: Fraud case message received from your system > To: > CC:,,, >,,,, >,,,, >,,, >,, > >Dear ISP people at,,, and NFIC, > >Please note that several mailing lists on the Internet have received >the below included unsolicited commercial message.

This causing a slight delay. Anyway, I sent the tape to Robert Cumming yesterday, so he should get it today. What I thought about the tape?

Need You (4.54) Scandinavian Indie Review: This is melodious singalong rock in the american school - say _Bon Jovi_, _Richard Marx_.. you know what I am talking about, stadium-rock. It is as easy as that. Sure, it is extremely tight, Jamie O'Kane has a fantastic voice, a voice that most people will say "Hey, I have heard this guy somewhere else! Isn't this... (insert your favourite melodious american rock band here)" when listening to Blind Rage. Jamie, when playing guitar, is very clever, very confident. His screaming guitar parts fits the rest of the music just like a glove. The production and the recording is extremely slick and professional. "Yellow Summer Sun" is a beautiful, acoustic piece with fantastic guitars, lonely drums and Jamie's sad voice really makes me shiver. It is definitely my favourite song on the album. It is also definitely a radio hit, if played at nights, whereas the rest of the songs would be played during daytime on radio stations like Megapol or Radio FM. This type of music definitely has its audience, though not the Indie one. It is straightforward rock performed by Jamie O'Kane, _Garry King_ (drums, percussion, backing vocals) and _Robert Bullock_ (bass, backing vocals). All doing their job very well too, even though Jamie is the one inevitably in the foreground. And as everything points to yet another american rock band, it is pretty interesting to learn that they actually are from the UK.

(Source: Scandinavian Indie) Lousy - (Sappy) 's 7" single "Kewl" released on Canadian record label Sappy was reviewed in one of Canada's biggest music papers called Exclaim. Here's what it said: "LOUSY - KEWL (SAPPY, BOX 25097, MONCTON, NB E1C 9M9) This first Canadian release from Sweden's Lousy is a six-song collection of short punk bursts that eloquently captures restless melancholy with a equally refreshing here-goes-nothing vocal technique. Yet amidst all their thrashings, they still had the smarts to thrown in twists of real rock keyboards. Rock'n'roll idolizes adolescence, and while Lousy's teen musings about holding hands, eschewing popularity and not getting a letter returned from your first love are appealing enough, it's the maturity of self- realization that's at the core of these songs.

Another CD in the making is called "En Ko P} Isen" (A Cow on the Ice), which is a tribute to the old band "G} } Bada" (Go and take a bath).

I spent the last 7 years in Malmoe and have built up Blue Studio with my partner(a skoaning). We have written, recorded and produced our own music as well as other artists. If you're from Skane, maybe you'd recognize Shamrock, Garry Lee Taylor, Ian White or Blue? Hmmm. Maybe not. We are currently shifting our studio over to Atlanta, so we won't be playing the southern Sweden circuit, at least this year. But it'll be great to read of the happenings in scandinavia anyhow. Find out more about us and our recordings on our homepage: Jag kan svenska, but this keyboard can't, so I'll write in english for now. Thanks!

If you watch the program, you can expect to see their brand new video "Kvicksilversand" and an interview with the band. Here's what was said about the video in a previous Selected News: Brandgul have spent a couple of days this summer recording a new video. While recording it at a friend's house, his neighbor, none other than Gothenburg ice-hockey team _Vastra Frolunda_'s goal keeper, stuck his head out the window and asked what they were doing, and gladly accepted the invitation to join them, fully dressed in his _ice-hockey gear!_ The video includes breaking of dishes, a goal keeper and body painted girls.

The album is currently number 1 (international album chart) and number 4 (international/ national album chart) in Japan. The single "Lovefool" is number 1 on the Tokyo Hot 100 Airplay list.

The album is number 18 (album) in Finland and entered the Danish album chart at number 38.

(Source: Topp40) Loosegoats - (StartRec) has kicked out member Jens Lowius (vocals, guitar) right when the band is on their way to strike gold. The reasons behind what happened differs depending on who you talk to (ie. the band or Jens himself) but according to the band, it was because "he was a bad guitar player, and we didn't agree on some things". Watch the Selected News for Jens' story. The band celebrated the release of their new album yesterday in Stockholm at Eldorado/Blue Funky, and are apparently looking for a new member on guitar.

The Swedish one was much the most eclectic, but then I like Kimmo and Sami's (compilers of the Finnish and Estonian tapes respectively) taste in music, so they sounded fine on first listen. Well, actually I've only really heard half the Estonian one so far. And I liked the Deep Turtle track... weird. Now I'm looking forward to the Latvian tape... Hvar finnes alle norrmen og dansker?
