Thery're from my town and practice next to us. They're the coolest people. And they don't play britpop, they're much more synthoriented. The singer is one of the best i've ever heard. And they have a new album out. they used to sound sort of like the late sugarcubes, but now they've evolved into something else, which i just can call Plum. philip ----------------------------------- Date: Fri, 7 Mar 1997 10:25:02 +0200 (EET) From: Kimmo Saaskilahti Subject: Re: Un Rayo de Sol (mostly non-scan) I'm trying to be brief here, as this is mostly about non-Scandie bands...

It's a gem. No, I put two other tracks from their Siesta CD (which is their only release I think?): 'Loveless' and 'De Flux En Flirt'. It's a great CD and if you're interested, you can order it eg. from Mind The Gap in Germany (email to Jwinzer@aol.com). It's by far the best mail order service for Siesta and Elefant releases. Or contact the label directly (siesta@get.es). >> They Go Boom! >Totally agreeing with you about that. I don't know what/which song(s) >Kimmo included on the tape, but I suspect that it might have been >"This Gift" and/or "Candy", right? 'Candy' and 'Waiting for Something'. >If you want to find most of >their stuff, Siesta and Sunday are the labels to contact. The Siesta album 'Grand Vitesse' is the best thing by them that I have heard. The album on Sunday (titled 'Atlantic') is very good as well, but the other one is still my favourite. >>Club 8 >Oh, you have really picked three of my (and I know Kimmo's) favourites Not that anybody is interested, but my fave band on Siesta are La Buena Vida (can't wait to hear their brand new album!!), my affection for the band Le Mans goes even further... Anyway, the three bands mentioned in this posting are not far behind :) Especially Club 8, about whom I cannot say enough good things; the music they make is among the most beautiful that I have ever heard. The combination of acoustic and jangly electric guitars, elegant keyboards and drum machines, and Karolina's magnificent voice is simply awesome. And as their songwriting skills are nothing short of excellent, the music is just gorgeous, both in a 'sunny summer morning' and 'rainy afternoon' kind of way. >Who's with me trying to arrange a gig with Club 8 and Red Sleeping Beauty?? Don't know about Club 8 but I think RSB do not have a habit of playing live often...I think they do about one gig in a year or so...but if this gig should happen, I would certainly love to be there!

Well, at least the Dee Rangers EP can be found at Freak Scene in Sthlm, since the band members themselves left a stack of them to Juan. If you hurry up, you might even get one of the ltd copies in yellow vinyl... Since I played drums in the first incarnation of this funky band, I feel it's my duty to plug them...

I saw them at Kalmar Nation here in Uppsala a couple of weeks ago, and they were so good my golden rule of not buying t-shirts at concerts was put to rest. With the added horn section and that natural groove that comes to Eggstone so easily, there was not a dull moment in set. I'm not even sure "My Trumpets" was the high point - there were so many. So, go see them, it's probably the best show you could see in Tuna for quite a while... np.

They were a thoroughly excellent Briths New Wave band of 79-82 vintage, one of the first bands I ever went to see -- they produced a wonderful album Kilimanjaro, had one hit single in Reward. They were part of the Liverpool scene that included Echo and the Bunnymen, Dalek I Love You, Big in Japan etc and went on to provide Frankie Goes to Hollywood and eventually the KLF (Bill Drummond was The Teardrop Explodes' manager). Julian Cope, the singer, went on to have a pretty impressive solo career and is still turning out really good music. They were named after a sentence from a Flash Gordon film... love Mo --------------------------- Date: Mon, 10 Mar 1997 09:00:10 +0100 (MET) From: chief@lysator.liu.se Subject: We're Back! Yes!

Komeda is simply not on your menu, >but that doesn't mean they're not any good! I'm sure you're right: music reviewers are so pressured to make their one paragraph 'interesting' that bands who they've not come across before can get unfairly victimised. I've not heard the album yet, but I've liked the three of four Komeda songs I've heard, and I couldn't recognize them in the review's description at all.

I do think that the "Super 8 Group" mentioned here is a band from Lund, Sweden. They have just been signed to the Uppers-label in Stockholm and are about to reliese their first single - produced by Christoffer Lundquist (Brainpool's bassist) in april. They usually spell their name "The Super EIGHT Group", but it's probably the same band ;) ---------------------------- Date: Mon, 10 Mar 1997 09:01:28 +0100 (MET) From: chief@lysator.liu.se Subject: Re: FOREIGN EXCHANGE On Sat, 8 Mar 1997, beluga.tsg@stockholm.mail.telia.com wrote about FOREIGN EXCHANGE > Has anyone dared open that strange letter?? > Please tell us whats in it!

Right Petter? Actually, I managed to misplace the info about the peel session, I have no idea of what they played, but no unreleased songs, and as I've been told it wasn't sounding much different than their studio efforts. >> And has anybody heard their new single ?

I was a bit disappointed, really. Except for the vocals it did not sound much like the Bear Quartet I know, it sounded almost like any indie pop band from the northern parts of our country! Usually, at those very few occasions when a TBQ song is played on the radio, I get the feeling that I have to drop everything I am doing at the moment and just listen. This song made me feel.... well, nothing special. But perhaps I shouldn't judge this song after hearing it only once, since it is TBQ I guess I will give it at least a couple of more chances. /Micke, possessing other virtues than bitterness - What's your virtue? Ps. Anyone who knows what songs are on the new Bowie album? Could you please be so kind to mail me list of them (in correct order, if possible), I have copied the album but forgot to write down the names of the songs.

Except for the vocals it did not sound > much like the Bear Quartet I know..." I disagree, I think it's a really good piece of music. Especially the second drum solo - brilliant. This sounds like BQ '94, tighter and more energy. The thing that hit me after I've listen to the EP, is the change of the often so melancolic lyrics. I've never seen BQ's lyrics so bitter and cynical.

Goodnight (2.39) In a desperate attempt to compare these new songs with the somewhat older ones on their recently released debut album, I find that I do not have the album in question, which in turn means that no comparison of the sort is possible. What I can do instead, is to compare them to what I have heard on the radio/TV and a recording of their live performance here in Link|ping not long ago. This leaves me with no other alternative than to say what I have said about them before - they are as tight live as they are on their records. 'Who Are You?' on my live recording sounds almost alarmingly close to the same song on this EP. All songs here fit well into the "heavy electric guitar segments mixed with charming intros, outros and choruses" style which they have set up for themselves, and of course, on top of everything, Annika Persson's distinct, almost breaking, vocals. But no song really stands out from the other. One song plays after another, and I never really notice. Not until I reach the last song, "Goodnight", which is a slow and easy duet (male/female) goodnight song, just like the title says. A nice surprise and a good song to end the EP with.

I'm interested to hear what's up, and if anyone > has heard their latest releases (Sandbugs and Homespun - as far as I know)? I heard a single from Sandbugs, they were supposed to be lo-fi influenced, but they were just boring pop, which most of us finns don't know how to make. But, i did hear the tommi Liimatta record, he is with Absoluuttinen Nollapiste. It was quite ok, very lo-fi. And he sings about his home town, which is also my home town. And i heard a band from Finland that was good, but i'm not really sure what they were called... "Hyenas" something, they're song or record was called "skin on my teeth", and if i got it right the band included Sam Jaffa. Please tell me more about them, they were really good, sort of PJ Harveyish. There's is another good new(?) finnish called Going Public. It's not really my kind of music, but they sound like Garbage, bush, well at least something along those lines, and i'd at least rather listen to them than the mentioned bands, cause they are much more interesting. I heard a new demo from finnish indiepop band leisure class, but i wasn't so impressed. It seemed like music for small kids, really obvious and boring. philip ----------------------------- Date: Mon, 17 Mar 1997 06:25:03 +0100 (MET) From: chief@lysator.liu.se Subject: Sin's Music on the TV [14-Mar-97] * LATE * ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Scandinavian Indie MUSIC ON THE TV Scandinavian Indie March 14 -> March 20 by Erik Soderstrom (chief@lysator.liu.se) Day Date Artist/What TV Program Channel Time --- ----- ---------------------- ------------------- ----------- ----- Fri 14/3 - Sat 15/3 Neneh Cherry Live 'n' Loud MTV Europe 16.30 R Nina Persson, Hellac.
