Perhaps a bit late now (I'll start to receive my mail on a minute-to- minute basis starting next week), but no, I'm afraid that 22.00-03.00 was all the time information I got. > You want a rewiev ? Yes, it would be interesting to hear what they sound like nowadays (and who their guests were), so if you're going and have the time, I'd appreciate it (and I believe others will too). //Erik ----------------------------- Date: Thu, 13 Nov 1997 00:10:59 +0100 (MET) From: Erik Soderstrom Subject: re: Bob Hund > my swedish isn't that good, but as fas i could understand, there > was something on p3 this evening about Bob Hund releasing a new > ep (with 4 songs) at the end of november. the title was something > like 'rock'n'roll (here is where my knowledge of the swedish lan- > guage was insufficient...) ...... for me'. i thought some people > here might be interested in this. Hmm, I have added the new bob hund releases to the "upcoming releases" page (http://www.lysator.liu.se/~chief/upcoming.html) and as far as I know, it will be one CD-EP and one 2x7". The release date mentioned is 17/11 (ie. on monday) and the track listing is as follows: 1. Ett fall & en losning (a case and a solution) 2. Tillbaks pa ruta ett (back on square one) 3. Rock'n'roll tar dod pa mig (rock'n'roll will kill me) 4. Noden kraver handling (need demands action) 5. Rock'n'roll tar dod pa mig igen (rock'n'roll will kill me again) (translations might not be the best ones, but hey, I'm Swedish! ;-)) The title seems to be "Rock'n'Roll Tar Dod Pa Mig". It was produced by Nille Perned according to their label, Silence Records. And apparently, they will show up on the TV show "Let's Go" on Swedish channel TV2, Nike on Swedish channel TV1 and ZTV's "Hemma hos Johanna Westman" during November (ie. now) - so I expect all of these TV appearences will be next week or the week after that. Let's check out the TV Guide tomorrow. :-) //Erik ----------------------------- Date: Thu, 13 Nov 1997 00:12:20 +0100 (MET) From: Erik Soderstrom Subject: re: Bob Hund Oh, forgot to mention that bob hund's new album is scheduled for release in January 98. //Erik ----------------------------- Date: Wed, 12 Nov 1997 22:55:15 -0800 From: xander@sirius.com Subject: re: Bob Hund > The release date mentioned is 17/11 (ie. on monday) and the track > listing is as follows: > > 1.

Too loud. And all I can say is AMEN to that. When I confronted the band with the fact, they said they wanted their music to be loud, and that was that. They did understand why no one dared to stand closer than a couple of meters away from the stage because of the volume though.

Their in-the- works website reveals releases with Sideshow Bob (lo-fi princes, right after Loosegoats) and list-favourites Sobsister. Check it out at: http://home5.swipnet.se/~w-50177/html/projekt.htm * GarageZone - new place for unsigned Swedish bands ------------------------------------------------- A new site dedicated to unsigned Swedish bands (in genres: pop, rock, ska, punk and metal) is on the way. It is called GarageZone and will only contain material from/about/with Swedish (and once again, _unsigned_) bands. 20-30 MB free disk space on the server / band - and as it is a non-profit project, no fees. In case you're interested and want to learn more about it, go to: http://hem.passagen.se/wigren/garagezone.html * The Autumn Fonogram Money Distributed (Topp40) ------------------------------------- The State Culture Council has distributed the autumn fonogram grants, and here are the more interesting ones: Record Company/Label Artist Amount Birdnest Eclipse 70.000 MNW Triakel 70.000 North Of No South Friend 60.000 Vibrafon Freewheel 70.000 Vibrafon Werup/Holmqvist 70.000 * Norrans Popfest in Skelleftehamn (Topp40) -------------------------------- The local daily paper Norra Vasterbotten, record company A West Side Fabrication and youth center Kaken arranges the "Norrans Popfest" in Skelleftehamn (15 kilometers from Skelleftea city center) on November 22nd for the third year in a row. The Popfest is a talent hunt "competition". Unsigned bands in the area play live in between more known acts, the winners are then decided and they get to release a record on A West Side Fabrication. Previous winners were: 1995 The All Janet, 1996: Sahara Hotnights. Playing but not competing bands this year are: This Perfect Day, Fireside, The Drowners, Sahara Hotnights, Purusam + one band yet to be announced. * This week's interesting Releases -------------------------------- Date Artist/Band Title Form Label 17/11 Cloudberry Jam Out of Control CD5 NONS 17/11 Leslies Of Today - For Today CD Harry Lime 17/11 Sideshow Bob Bored Beyond Belief CD5 Absurd Records 23/11 Cloudberry Jam The Impossible Shuffle CD Quattro (JAP) * New Bands on Tour ----------------- Just way too many to include here, take a look at the Gig Guide pages on the Scandinavian Indie website. To mention a few personal favourites: Coo (SF), Cucumber Farmer (SF) and Candysuck (S). Added dates: A hectic winter for Kent (S), new dates for Fireside (S), Mopeds (S) and more. Calle Dernulf (DJ) will not play on all the Popstad tour dates. Today's bad news in a bundle - that's right, right here, right now.

Maybe someone on the list can >give me some more info? (E.g. what do they sound like, are they any good, >are they good live bands etc.) I have never seen any of them play live and I have not heard very much with COBOLT, except that they sound a lot like RED HOUSE PAINTERS and that the members come from bands that usually play much tougher music (like REFUSED). CARPET PEOPLE are very good, IMO. At least their "Volley u make" album from last year was. "lo-fi for dark autumn nights" might be one way of describing their sound. An "almost unplugged" DINOSAUR JR might be another. >K-Pist I've only heard really bad things about, so I doubt someone on >this list will be able to change my opinions on them, but feel free to >give it a try if you want... :) Strange, I have almost only heard positive things about this band. Nojesguiden gave it a bad review but that magazine seems to have as a goal just to write the opposite of what everyone else writes. And honestly - how many Swedish bands are there that have a sound of their own, a sound which they have not copied exactly from some foreign model? IMO rap, drums and synthesizers is a fascinating mix, at least it is so on K-PISTs "Voltage controlled" album. Besides, they rock much harder than many bands with guitars. Kind of as if Zak Tell (CLAWFINGER) or Zack de la Rocha (RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE) had been vocalist in early DEPECHE MODE, or something :-). /Micke, shaken and stirred after having seen "Tictac" by Daniel Alfredson (if someone had told me, 24 hours ago, that a couple of young swedes could do a "Pulp Fiction"-inspired movie which is much better than "Pulp Fiction" I would have considered this someone a complete freak. I was wrong! Go see it and you may spend several hours thinking about whether your views (prejudice?) about people and things around you might be totally wrong) ----------------------------- Date: Tue, 18 Nov 1997 01:16:43 +1000 From: Micke Rehnstrom Subject: Re: Popstad '97 Anton wrote: > At what time will Cobolt play ? > It's live on P3 right ? I think Swedish radio channel P3 will record some gig and then transmit it afterwards, on December 11th. But as the programme is only 1 hour I guess it will only be a few songs by each band in it. /Micke ----------------------------- Date: Tue, 18 Nov 1997 01:34:59 +0100 From: Erik Soderstrom Subject: Re: Popstad '97 > At what time will Cobolt play ? > It's live on P3 right ? No, the P3 Live tonight is from the party held when Umea celebrated receiving the Popstad 97 "award", but I suspect Cobolt did play there as well. //Erik ----------------------------- Date: Tue, 18 Nov 1997 01:41:21 +1000 From: Micke Rehnstrom Subject: Michael Greene demo I also felt a need to tell you about this excellent new band, from Umea, and their "Onion" demo. IMO this demo is better than much of what is released on records at the moment. The first reference I come to think of is THE JAM (before they became more of a soul rock band). There are differences, of course. Both vocalists in MICHAEL GREENE have bright voices; there are two guitars, which means less space for the bass guitar, compared to JAM; cynicism is not as important as in Wellers texts and where it appears it is directed towards the relationship between two people instead of against society in general. Otherwise, I can hear both JAM and other "mod pop/rock" bands in MG:s sound. Guitar pop/rock, sometimes with a "soul groove" in it. And it sounds much better than most other "neo-mod pop" bands that pops up everywhere in Sweden right now. I tried to do something else at the same time as I listened to this tape for the first time, but it was impossible. The songs on the a-side - "For fun", "Pearls" and "I believe" - got stuck in my brain immediately. And they still are. I must have listened to them about 40-50 times by now but I dont seem to get tired with them. The three songs on the b-side is more "groove rock", while the a-side is rather poppy, and I dont like the b-side songs that much, even if they are not bad at all. But the a-side would have been an excellent single, I hope it will become one in the future.
