It all depends to what sound they change.

To an even softer sound than now? Are you kidding?

Exactly my point! >> (Note. I actually think the "sold out"-expression is bullshit) > > Sorry. I don't agree. Explain to me why you think the 'sold out' term > is bullshit. Please. Because it's simply an expression that some of the so called "original fans" - you know, the ones who used to adore them years before they even got signed - always seem to use when a band suddenly gets famous and starts to sell millions of CDs. If you like a small band that suddenly gets famous, be happy for them, don't abandon them! Of course, if they have changed their sound and then become famous, I can understand that some fans get upset, but only if the new sound is really bad. In that case there is always the old material left to listen to! Well, I'm not sure if I'm making myself clear (it's getting late!), but what I mean is that some people seem to use the "sell-out"-expression when a band release something they don't like, just because their (the fans') taste hasn't grown the same way as the band's. And then there are those who just shout "sell-out" when a band gets played on MTV, starts releasing singles, sells a million copies of their latest CD, or whatever. Just because Bob Hund releases singles (and promotional ones too I suppose) and gets quite heavy air-play on P3 (Swedish national radio Channel 3 - quite mainstream) these days, I don't think they have sold out. Of course, I don't believe in the expression, but still I think no less of them. I do think most of their older material is way better than most of the new songs, but I'm happy for them; they finally get some wider recognition! By the way, it's nice to see that the list is so thriving these days!

Well I'm not suprised I missed here then... last time I bought it I got the same feeling I got when I was 13 and bought my first nudie mag. Next time they write something useful (like the Iggy interview that was the reason I bought it at all) I will steal it instead since it's so bad... The level is lower than the level of an average heavy metal guy of 14 who listens to Venom all day long :o) > One funny thing.

And that for more than one reason, the main one being that, sadly, the CD seems to have been damaged in the post. There's a spot about 8 cm in diameter on the middle of the cd which makes tracks 2 through 7 completely unplayable on my machine. Obvious question here is does everyone who signed up for the chain still want to be on it? I don't think that Kimmo will have the chance in the near future to compile anything again, so come on everybody, let me know what you think about this. Here are the tracks that you will be able to hear (with some comments). 1. All Stars: Eve This band has some great ideas musically and also lyrically. (Just got another tape with 3 more songs by them, so this is an overall impression). Very poppy, the one drawback that I see is in the singer's English. Don't get me wrong, I love accents, but her phrasing/rhythm and sometimes her grammar/vocabulary could stand a little help. 8. The Pansies: Neighborhood Girl This is ace girlpop and I'm not going to waste time in tracking down their releases. (Actually, I know that it can be had from Mind the Gap in Germany, but I'm going to try to twist Kimmo's free arm on this one). 9. Wilma: Pahanilmanlintu Forgetting what this sounds like, but I know that it was nice to hear Finnish for a change. 10. 22-pistepirrko: roundabout 11. Dada girl: sandpit 12. Mess: sun day All of these sounded pretty good, and on the pop side. 13. Lemonator Just gawd-awful typical sounding alternative rock. I'll expect to hear this one in elevators. 14. Spam: Ugly Very nice music for a band with such an awful name. The lyrics are total fluff, like their track on the previous Finnish chain (tape) (their track was the one about "which tee-shirt shall I wear today"). "I don't like you because you're ugly, ugly, ugly". Actually, I think that they could have made the vocals even sillier. 15. Aknestik: Vien sun sydamen pohjoiseen Again quite nice to hear Finnish, and this guy's voice is pretty smooth. But this strikes a slightly uncomfortable "commercial" chord with me. 16. Cessna: Wide Awake Well, I don't think that it's fair for me to use this space to advertise Cessna, so I won't say anything about this still quite wonderful track which didn't quite make the cut for the Bordeaux album. And that's all that's playable. And, darn it, I was really looking forward to Larry and the Left Handed (track 5).

Or is she just on drugs? I would lie if I said I love Linda's 'journalism' but she got to get credit for the fact that she's the one who first talked about bands that I hadn't heard about before, such as bob hund, and that would have taken some more yrs for me to know about, living in this little hellhole in the middle of nowhere... but one who's worse than Linda Norrman is the Linda Norrman wannabe in Aftonbladet.

Well, even though it seems rather hopeless, you could try playing the disc in a couple of other cd players just to see what happens before we cancel the tree. I guess I'll have to compile another tape instead... Nice to hear you liked at least some of the tracks there though.

Well well, opening my mailbox today makes me realize some people want my head on a pole. I guess I shouldn't write again, since it'll more likely be like trying to put out fire with gasolin... It's just that when totte.pop posted the result of the poll, I could see it coming... someone was gonna go "why isn't X on the list" or "what's Y doing in the list when Z's not there", or other equally pointless remarks.

Whoops! That was supposed to be 8 mm, not cm. See how much trouble we put ourselves through here so that the eurokids don't have to read messages about inches... > Well, even though it seems rather hopeless, you could try playing the disc > in a couple of other cd players just to see what happens before we cancel > the tree. I guess I'll have to compile another tape instead... Haven't had a chance to respond let alone read all the messages which went directly to me, but it seems that there is interest in letting the CD make its rounds, albeit 6 tracks can't be played. More when I get back from work...

Your note on my pigfaced smiley :o) was kind of as personal you could get to someone on this level. I was never looking for an apology.

I actually think the "sold out"-expression is bullshit) > Martin I know some bands who actually admit that they have changed their sound just to sell more records, so I guess you can say that they have "sold out". But I do think it is bullshit to say that a band has become bad just because they sell more records than they did before. I would really lie if I told anyone that I hate all music on the hit-lists. Just look at the American album list from last week (I do not know what it looks like this week) - Cardigans, Wannadies and Stina Nordenstam on second place!! This discussion just reminds me of something the singer of Soundgarden (cannot remember his name) once said: "To me, commercial music means that someone listens to his own music and asks the question: will this sell? If the answer is no! and he changes his music until the answer is yes! then he is making commercial music. We don't make commercial music. We do alternative music that sells a lot of records". I have no comments on whether I agree with his opinion about his own band, just thought it was a damned good thing to say! /Micke ------------------------------ Date: Fri, 24 Jan 1997 19:00:22 +0100 From: micre215@knuten.liu.se (Michael Rehnstrom) Subject: Finnish tape + Icy Icy tape I am beginning to feel like a post office, or something :-).

The thing is quite easy when a band say they changed their sound to sell more records. But when they deny it? Are they right or wrong? No really good answer there. // Jens ------------------------------- Date: Fri, 24 Jan 1997 19:17:12 +0100 From: micre215@knuten.liu.se (Michael Rehnstrom) Subject: Re: Non-Scan: Moonshake Marten Sahlen wrote about Moonshake: >> Certainly wouldn't miss it if they played in Stockholm, though. > > Why miss them at all?

Just thought that I should inform you that Herrgarn is a place for Linkoping students. "Outsiders" are allowed but you have to get phoned in, in advance, and also brought in by another Linkoping student. If you are a student at any other swedish university you are welcome without "lifeguard" but you are not allowed to bring any guest with you. /Micke, still not sure if he will visit this concert, but I am sure there are other Linkoping students you can ask for help, if you are interested, that is. ----------------------------- Date: 24 Jan 1997 19:47:13 +0100 From: Robert Cumming Subject: Re: Cardigans >> (Note.

Well, a band might change its style so that more people like the music. Or so that their friends like the music more. I suppose you could argue that whatsisname from Soundgarden reads his own interviews and asks the question: am I credible? If the answer is no! and he changes his interview technique till the answer is yes! then he's doing some clever marketing...

Just get the "In lemon grove" single or > ... theres alot of good singles. Yeah, right. Both "In Lemon Grove" and "At Point Loma" are since long deleted, 1000 copies made of each. And from what I've heard they are deleted in Japan as well. "My Trumpets" is however available (together with "Anasthesia", the b-side on the "Water" single, and "Against the sun") on the Snap- collection "Now I'm home". "My Trumpets" and "Doesn't matter" are also bonustracks on the japanese edition of "In San Diego". The singles available are: "Water" "Summer and looking for a job/Brass" "Never been a better day" "Birds in cages" (soon) By the way, it's the Cardigans who are a bit Eggstonesque not the other way around.
