They played about seven songs, including a new song (actually it was an old song but it has not been recorded yet) that sounded great. It was a very good gig, at least as good as a gig can get in a crowded record store.

Hey all - _Please_ remember that this list only works if everyone writes in _English_. There has been several swedish messages posted lately, which is enough to call for this reminder. You wouldn't want people to post their messages in Swahili, right? Right, so keep them posts coming, but in _English_.

There is no question whether to go to the MIDEM music fair in Cannes, in the south of France at the end of January every year, or not, for those within the music business elite, just as there is no question for any national athletic team whether to go to a World Championship tournament or not. Actually, one can not completely compare MIDEM with a tournament, because Cannes is not where the fight over the market shares is held, but it is the place where a large part of all contacts are made, negotiations are held, contracts are signed and the future for thousands and thousands of musicians is decided. To participate at MIDEM is like a sign of quality for the people in the music business. "See you at MIDEM" is a usual invitation, to which it might be a bit embarrassing to answer "No we are not going there". Such an answer may be interpreted as if something was wrong with your company, that the company is too fresh and without resources. Or maybe, quite simply, that the company is not a serious one. Of course, one can work within Sweden without going to MIDEM, but when it comes to non-domestic contacts, to never go to MIDEM and keep the company and the contacts in a working state, is very probably a lot more difficult, if not impossible. Among the Swedish visitors at this years's fair, one could find veterans like Dag H{ggquist from Gazell Music, who celebrated his thirty first jubilee and first timers like Ben Marlene from Jimmy Fun and Helena Sv{rd from NONS Records. Many people from all over the world have been at MIDEM five-ten-fifteen times in a row, which results in many happy reunions between competitors and business partners alike. At MIDEM, video, radio stations as well as services and equipment that has something to do with the music industry is marketed. This year, one could find a lot of companies offering different services and solutions for music marketing with the help of multimedia and the Internet at the special "Multimedia Pavillion". At several places, one could also find "The MIDEM Webclub" where all visitors had access to computers in order to surf the net, get needed information or send and read e-mail. If MIDEM in Cannes is the number one meeting place, the arrangers have started to compete with themselves by arranging two other MIDEMs. One in Hong Kong in May, and one in Miami in September. This year's MIDEM in Cannes, which was the thirty first one in a row, about 11.000 people from 3.395 companies and organizations participated. A total of 85 countries were represented. >From saturday January 19th to thursday January 23rd, 52 concerts were held, where most of the participating companies presented several artists under different themes like Reggae, Rocks Cannes, Japanese Night, The Best Of British, Euromix, Nashville, Songwriters Association, Euro Dance Party, Les Dance d'or, Detroit-Paris, and so on. Well known names, like Jimmy Cliff, Shaggy, Toure Kunda, Brainpool, Robert Miles, Mr President, Los Del Rio, Culture, Terje Rypdahl, Jan Akkerman and several others, represented a big mix of different music styles. Lesser known bands and artists got the chance to show themselves at several places. One of them was right outside Palais des Festivals in Magic Mirrors, where a total of fourteen bands played under the theme "Talents -97". We might hear more from names like Ultra Orange, Bazbaz, Castafiore Bazooka, Zoomtop Orchestra and La Foule in the future. At the Cannes youth center MJC Picaud, bands like Kill The Thrill, Tripod and Las Wampas played, and at the Amiraute on Palm Beach, unknown bands like Cribb 199, Aux 88 and Dulce Pontes held their concerts. At Europe's oldest discotheque, Whiskey 'a Gogo (opened 1960), some of the world's best DJ:s played, like Carl Cox, Bruno Guez and Toni Rox, between midnight and 5am. Thousands of bands who did not perform live received promotion through the enormous amount of "samplers", or promo-CDs, which were spread around during the week. Among the many examples, one can mention Swedish bands like Superswirls, Brainpool, Broder Daniel, Bumblebees, The April Tears, The Family Tree, etc. who now have their samplers spread around the world. Roasting House from Malm| celebrated their ten year anniversary by first having a lottery where the prize consisted of a free week in their studio (which was won by Per Alexandersson from P3), and then giving away a full-length CD with Crayfish, These Blue Days and Subculture among others. During the week, 23 conferences and seminars were held, with themes like Clearing Multimedia Rights, How Useful Are Pluggers?, A Digital Update, What Distributions Networks For The Future, and Business From The Underground. One of the most interesting seminars was "Music on-Line, A Revolution Beyond The Desk" which brought up the question about what the music industry can do to survive when the consumers, in the near future, are able to download music files with CD quality to their computers at home via the Internet. Brett Atwood from Billboard, Gabriel Levy - BMG Entertainment, Brian Pertl - Microsoft, among others, shared their thoughts about the subject. Another interesting seminar was held about "Europe, Music And The Young Generation". This seminar went on during the whole day (monday), and the discussion presented the subject of influence, possibilities and effects when it comes to young people. Among the twenty five speakers, one could find names like Xavier Rox - MIDEM, Nana Mouskouri - who represented the European Parliament, Jean Michel Baer - the European commission, Mark Jones - Wall of Sounds and Brian Eno. Sweden was represented by 85 companies, of which record companies, music publishers and distributors made out the biggest part. Hardware companies like CD-Plant and DCM as well as organizations like STIM and SOM were also present. The Music Fair in Gothenburg was also there, creating new contacts and gathered ideas for the 1998 fair. Media companies like Sveriges Radio, Topp40, Appollon Bild & Film, Rockfile and Sweden's leading pre-mastering company; Cutting Room were also a part of the Swedish crew. The Swedish booth, where Export Music Sweden had gathered many of the Swedish companies, was one of the largest at MIDEM, and the interest from the whole world in Swedish music is, as expected, big. Something that never stops to puzzle business people in the music industry. "Do you have special greenhouses for success groups in Sweden?" is a question I have been asked. The answer is, as we all know: Yes, but we call it "replokal" (rehearsal rooms). The big interest, to create and play music oneself, in combination with the favourable climate amateur bands in Sweden have today, together with the competent business people, is most certainly what have brought Sweden to its position as one of the largest music export countries in the world today.

Like Daniel recently did I'd like to introduce myself as I just resubscribed to this list after having month with a messed up mailbox... Actually I've been on this list for more a little bit more than one and a half year and now I think it's introduction time. I like music, and when I'm alone at home (and noone can hear me) I like to sing along with e.g. Fidget, bob hund, Yvonne, Nine Inch Nails, Tori Amos, Jakob Hellman, Divine Comedy, Depeche Mode and Einsturzende Neubauten. I also go to school, I try to learn how to drive, I watch movies, I make webpages and I talk a lot of crap and more serious stuff with a friend called Jenny. If we'd had a band I'd play the melodica (or what ever it's called; the instrument Thomas in bob hund plays...?) and she the tambourine, that's already decided. If I'm able to I'll hopefully go see Fidget and Gene on the 17th this month. (I don't live in Stockholm unfortunately.) Well, that's about it... You can always go check my quite recently updated Yvonnepage: www.algonet.se/~elin/yvonne Bye.

Oh, i have no doubt the elite was there. the money elite was there in large quantities. yeah! yeah! yeah! but was there any good music there? let's see... don't think Bad Vugum or Trash Can was there, not Kranky or Drunken Fish either... i doubt that Matador wasn't there either... so this must be a clear sign that there's something wrong with these companies. they are not quality. no freshness, not serious. complete trash. yup, can't see it in no other way... but hey! there was rober miles! mr. president!! los del rio!!!! macarena, now there's quality for you!!! whoever wrote the piece on midem, please don't take this as a personal flame, i'm just saying that it was a meating of money, not music. i don't think freshnes had anything to do with midem. is this what scandinavian INDIE is about? and hey! i'm not flaming. i'm just trying to get some discussion. thank you. (just disregard this individual who is clearly stuck somewhere in the swamp of humanism and musical values against money) -Timo ------------------------------- Date: Sun, 6 Apr 1997 19:18:17 +0100 From: Michael Rehnstrom Subject: Re: MIDEM@Cannes 1997 Report >There is no question whether to go to the MIDEM music fair in Cannes, in the >south of France at the end of January every year, or not, for those within >the music business elite, just as there is no question for any national >athletic team whether to go to a World Championship tournament or not. Perhaps not, there is always the prospect of a couple of weeks of free vacation, I guess - like the players in american ice hockey teams have realized. Since I have not been at Midem I do not know if this is true for representatives of the swedish music industry, but I would certainly feel less embarrassed if some swedish national sports teams decided to stay at home. >Well known names, like Jimmy Cliff, Shaggy, Toure Kunda, Brainpool, Robert >Miles, Mr President, Los Del Rio, Culture, Terje Rypdahl, Jan Akkerman >and several others, represented a big mix of different music styles. Well, apart from Brainpool, I guess Timo has already expressed feelings I agree with about these bands. Doesn't everyone already know how Shaggy, Cliff, Miles, Mr President and Los del Rio sound? What is the point of them appearing there? Correct if I am wrong but one guess is: Pure recreation! >We might hear more from names like Ultra Orange, >Bazbaz, Castafiore Bazooka, Zoomtop Orchestra and La Foule in the >future. Guess this is correct, We couldn't really hear less about them, could we?:-) Well, as I said, I have never been at MIDEM (and I guess I will never go there, either) so I may be far out of line here - but still... I guess the seminars might be interesting but the rest doesn't really sound so nice. I rather listen to music than watch it in an exhibition booth! /Micke -------------------------------- Date: Sun, 6 Apr 1997 20:39:06 +0100 From: Michael Rehnstrom Subject: More MIDEM I have just visited the Scan-indie Internet site and watched the pictures in the MIDEM report (the pictures were not there when I read the report a couple of days ago). Well, OK, since representatives from House of Kicks, Burning Heart and Dolores (together with the already mentioned NONS) were there the event gets a somewhat better rating in my eyes. Still cannot get rid of the feeling that it sounds just like a few days of recreation on the french riviera, though. Perhaps this is just because I feel it is wrong to turn music into an "industry happening" or to treat music as if it is an industry-produced commodity you travel around and show up on fares and exhibitions! /Micke ------------------------------ Date: Mon, 7 Apr 1997 01:24:47 +0200 (MET DST) From: hans.lindell@rockfile.se Subject: Life is a bitch....?

Well....I do understand some of your opinions. However..fairs like MIDEM, Popcomm, SXSW etc....are an important part of the music industry. In your thoughts its seems that music are something much more pure and "higher" than to trade with. But..life is a bitch... and without marketing, sales, distribution etc of music on CD, Video, tapes there would't be much else then tape exchanges.... (Nothing bad with that) I wrote this report to Scandinavian Indie just to let the readers have some more knowledge about the music industry... It does exist, even if some like it or not. To an incredible large number of musicians, music- enthusiasts etc. these musicfairs seems to be unknown. Everybody knows that there are fairs abouts cars, boats, food, movies.... Michael. Wake up and realize...maybe you can change the system..

And yes, i know my idealism will die. May the boogie continue n.p.

Well, I know some people here organizes live concerts every now and then so I just thought I should do some "marketing" for a band which has contacted me and asked me to help them get a gig, for them, on _May 2nd_. Karma Kain, from Uppsala, is the name of the band. They describe their music as "american indie". If you have read the latest issue of Sound Affects you know that their demo was almost named "demo of the issue". Ninni Brunnberg wrote: "Somewhat muddled ´grunge´with some features of the 70´s..."; "The heavy sound, together with Girilal Baars light and very special voice, constitutes a peculiar mix..." and that the songs are "too good for just being on a demo". Perhaps the word ´grunge´makes you suspicious but I think it is far more interesting, with much better lyrics, than other bands categorized under that definition. So, the band plays in Stockholm on May 1st and in Uppsala on May 3rd. If you are interested in having this band play live, at least on the same continent as these two cities, do not hesitate to contact me or (much better, in fact) Karma Kains vocalist Girilal Baars (who is also joining our list soon) at: baars@bahnhof.se The band also wants you to know that they play for a small sum of money, "money for soup" is quite enough. /Micke, who knows this is not a marketing place, but that doesn´t seem to stop other people so... :-) --------------------------------- Date: Mon, 7 Apr 1997 18:58:30 +0200 From: Michael Rehnstrom Subject: Re: Life is a bitch....?

In your thoughts its seems that music are >something much more pure and "higher" then to trade with. No, not really. I just don't like when music is streamlined into some sort of mass consumption commodity supposed to be sold to as many people as possible (like some of the artists who appeared at MIDEM are excellent examples of). You say that marketing is needed by everyone but I know that one of the key phrases in marketing (which I have studied) is that good products market themselves - they always find their consumers. >To an incredible large number of musicians, music-enthusiasts etc these >musicfairs seems to be unknown. I just wonder if these fairs get so little attention because, as you say, people don't know about them or because people don't think they are so important as you claim.

They sound like PJ Harvey, but still sort of 22ppish. Check out their album. And also, I witnessed Bob Hund in tammerfors. They were amazing. I talked to tomas and mats and i even got on their guest list. It was a night to remember. Also, Larry and the Lefthanded were super, just as good as Bob Hund. philip -------------------------------- Date: Tue, 8 Apr 1997 05:45:24 +0200 (MET DST) From: chief@lysator.liu.se Subject: Re: MIDEM@Cannes 1997 Report It is definitely interesting to see that such a general thing as a music fair generates these steamy feelings. And I do agree somewhat with both "sides" if we can talk about sides - but I think that it is mostly a question about attitude, location and time. If MIDEM was held in Stockholm, Helsinki or Oslo for example, I'd think that most labels we have seen mentioned in the discussion would be represented. I think it is also time to realise that the music industry is no longer only represented by the major/big companies, but more and more by the medium/smaller ones. And I think we can all see this by the fact that companies like NONS and Dolores did show up at this year's MIDEM in Cannes. Just wait and see - next year's fair will surely see more smaller labels represented. The fact that MIDEM has been the place for the majors before is still a very prominent feeling among smaller labels, who are reluctant to go there because of it - "it's not for us" etc. But like I said, the wind has changed, and the medium/smaller labels take bigger pieces of the market these days. //Erik (chief@lysator.liu.se) ------------------------------ Date: Tue, 8 Apr 1997 10:13:03 +0000 From: "Daniel Hansson" Subject: Poetry For those of you interested in poetry: Mattias Alkberg (songwriter and singer in The Bear Quartet) released his second collection of poems, "Roda Stjarna" (Red Star) yesterday on Wahlstrom & Widstrand Publ. House. Hope it's just as brilliant as Moby Dick. /Daniel --------------------------------- Date: Tue, 8 Apr 1997 13:25:35 +0200 (MET DST) From: Ola Lundkvist Subject: Fidget gossip Some little gossip, that maybe isn't that interesting, but I'm in a gossip mode today: I chatted with Pontus (the bass player) from Fidget the other day. I asked him if I he had some nice gossip to share, but he said that there were nothing much to tell. He almost thought that they would need a little scandal. Anyway, if I would have brought a camera I could have taken a nice picture of Pontus dressed like an angel walking the streets of gbg. (Well, I myself and another 30 people were dressed similar...) I got to know that Louise lost her effect pedals on their release party - for the second time. Either Louise doesn't look after her stuff, or someone is seriously collecting Fidget effect pedals. They have some nice gigs to look forward too, but would certainly appreciate a few more dates. I bet they will be visiting UK for a short tour this summer, but Pontus didn't reveal any plans. Another friend of Pontus revealed that he sent him a fake fan mail. Pontus didn't fall for it though, he suspected that it was a practical joke from the beginning. And no one was surprised when we got to know who it was who sent it... Finally Pontus said, that his greatest motivation and inspiration are those people that are almost fanatically overwhelmed by their music. Some of you are on this list btw. So lets keep feeding our favourite pop stars with energy and motivation - one day or another they will give us that perfect song or gig in return... /Ola ----------------------------------- Date: Tue, 8 Apr 1997 13:43:57 +0200 From: "Claes Nordling" Subject: Never trust the E.M.I. Hi! Sorry, for writing in swedish. It was just an accident. I didn't think about that. And my information about a cancelled gig with This Perfect Day wasn't even true, she lied... to me. The girl at E.M.I. who gave me tickets. Never trust E.M.I. - Sex Pistols would agree too, I think. ------------------------------------ Date: Tue, 8 Apr 1997 13:44:53 +0200 (MET DST) From: Ola Lundkvist Subject: Honey Is Cool I saw an ad for a Honey Is Cool gig a few days ago.

For me certainly the best act was Unun with their Fistfull and Kung Fu Blue being the top tunes.

Well, I just feel it is time for me as some sort of "moderator" of this list to say something about the recent messages on this list. I'm not complaining - and I don't moderate the list at all - it is free as a bird, but ... First, I don't know if it's just that the summer is just around the corner and we're all irritated, working hard these last few months, and can't stand the strange changes in the weather, cold one day, hot the next. Whatever it is, I see no need for the kind of personal attacks we've seen lately. With personal attacks I mean these "Hey X, you're crazy if you..." messages, or if someone posts something in another language than english, or posts some information that doesn't interest you, and you tell the person not to post such information. It's just a matter of respecting other people's views and thoughts, and maybe the information posted interested someone else - right? So instead of insulting people, just say you don't agree with whatever it was he/she wrote, and why. And if someone posts a message in another language, it is easy enough to just tell them that the list only works if everyone use english. And if you find a message with information you're not interested in, just delete it. It's as simple as that. Too many lists have died because of flame wars. Second - I'd like to thank everyone who posts to the list - we're over 300 people on the list, which should cater for an active list, just like we have seen the last couple of days. Alkberg poetry, Honey Is Cool info, Fidget info, EMI trouble, MIDEM discussion, Scotts (whom I've never heard of - which means I second Robert's request for more information as it really sounds interesting!), Cardigans homepage etc. That is exactly how at least I want the list to look like. So don't stop posting because of this message - I only wanted to say what I thought as a fellow list member. //Erik (chief@lysator.liu.se) ------------------------------ Date: Wed, 9 Apr 1997 02:32:04 +0200 (MET DST) From: chief@lysator.liu.se Subject: Venue Herrgar'n Gig Guide And so the final version of the Gig Guide for venue Herrgar'n in Linkoping before the place closes down for the summer: 10/4 Petrol 17/4 Cry 24/4 Starmarket 8/5 This Perfect Day 15/5 Backyard Babies 22/5 Loosegoats 29/5 Carpe Wade 5/6 Silverbullet //Erik (chief@lysator.liu.se) ------------------------------ Date: Wed, 09 Apr 1997 09:40:47 +0200 From: elin Subject: Fidget, scott and me Different people have said things: >Nice to have you here, but I really can't >imagine somebody sitting in his/her room >singing Einsturzende or NIN quietly without >anyone hearing... :) I can assure you that noone hears me, I don't even have a stereo, just a portable cd player and the maximum volume is not what I want it to be.

Writing now about the band Surreal, who release their debut-single in a weeks time. You all should really catch up with them. They're great. The first track "Pitbulls & Landrovers" is a cross between Flaming Lips with melodies and Weezer and the second one "Tuxedo" is a slower one with a great chorus. The single is released on Starboy Records, the label created by Hansi Friberg, Linda Norrman Skugge and Johan Skugge. It will be distributed by BMG. Again, check it out.

I was responsible for the show at 1000fryd, so maybe I'm not very objective about this, but here it is: Sloppy is totally awesome. They started their set about 20 past ten with sinister, minimalistic techno. Only the keyboard player was on stage, and it was almost totally dark, so even though the music was quite good it started getting a bit boring after 15-20 minutes. Fortunately the rest of the band went on stage then, and the party began. The singers stage presence is incredible, the drummer (it was only his third gig with sloppy I was told later) was incredibly tight, and the guitarist churned out noises like a ten ton truck. Their new material sound like an updated and more energetic version of "TV Sky" era Young Gods or something, but in my opinion more varied and better. It just got better and better, and even the 15 minutes of pure techno they ended with at 12 had people jumping around and dancing like crazy. I spoke to them afterwards, and they are currently looking for a record company to put out their new songs. The demo tape I received with the raw mixes are excellent, and apparently they're looking for a major, so I guess it's not indie anymore (but who cares, as long as it's good music). Oh, and they're really nice people, too. js PS: Sorry about the lousy review. -------------------------------- Date: Wed, 09 Apr 1997 14:03:44 +0200 From: Torsvall Subject: Re: Poetry Totte Pop wrote: > >For those of you interested in poetry: > >Mattias Alkberg (songwriter and singer in The Bear Quartet) released > >his second collection of poems, "Roda Stjarna" (Red Star) yesterday > >on Wahlstrom & Widstrand Publ.

Well, being a Petrol fan, of course I disagree. :-) I thought they were great - their live sound/vocals amazingly close to their records. I do agree with you when it comes to the band (the guys) though, and that feeling only got stronger when everyone in the band left except for Jenny and Camilla when I asked the first question for the interview. I did ask them (the girls) about it, but they said the guys were happy, though I'm not sure I believe them. But I guess that's the way it is - the guys _are_ just accompanying musicians, no more, no less. Photos + the small pieces of information from the interview will be posted on the SIN web. Oh, by the way, list member Petter Tiilikainen assaulted (joke) me during the gig! Quite a surprise to find him here in Linkoping. :-) Petter - thanks for the help with the interview! Oh yeah - if anyone is wondering why I'm sort of "gone" from the list these days - I'm tied up with loads of projects at the univ. as well as looking for a real job as I have graduated (finally). And if anyone wonders whatever happened to the Sound Affects web site premiere thing-a-palooza - it is all ready to be launched except for a few vital pieces that I'm _still_ waiting for from the chief editor, whom we all know as JL. He has promised to send the stuff every time I have called the last three-four weeks, but I have yet to receive it. As soon as I do receive it, the site is open and I'll let you know. //Erik (chief@lysator.liu.se) ------------------------------ End of SIN Digest #4.18 ***********************
