New Bands on Tour Today's good news in a bundle - that's right, right here, right now. * Mulu (UK) and Teens In Traffic (S) - FREE show December 4th ----------------------------------------------------------- Quick note to those in Stockholm on December 4th (thursday): MULU (UK) + TEENS IN TRAFFIC (S) Stockholm - Studion --== FREE ENTRANCE ==-- Thursday December 4th, at 20:00 MULU (formerly known as Juniper) on Dedicated is Laura Campbell and Alan Edmunds - known for his remixes of Bjork, The Grid, Utah Saints and Fluke. Their music is described by their label as: "Boy/girl pop which has its finger as firmly on the pulse of Bacharach class as it does heady trip-hop. Add a sprinkle of Celtic flavoured folk moods, dress it up with shimmering melodies, accesorize with subtle background touches and wrap it round Laura Campbell's soulfully haunting expressive vocals and this is Annie Lennox for the Dubstar generation." * More MULU: http://www.dedicated.co.uk/mulu.html * MULU will also play in Olso (N), John Dee - 5/12 and Copenhagen (DK), Rust - 6/12 TEENS IN TRAFFIC is Sara and Jonas from Lulea, Malte from Ostersund and Jejo from Helsingborg. They met in Stockholm through shared friends and shared interests, and today they are all in a band together. Their music is described as soft and pleasant pop, like balm for the ears. * Lesbian Barby Scene (S) ----------------------- Malmo-based "Lesbian Barbie Scene" recently received e-mail from major US Barbie makers Mattel who threatened to sue the band if they did not remove their homepage within five days. The band decided to change their name instead, and are therefor called "Lesbian Barby Scene" these days. A new demo is out right now called "Attack of The Killer Duck", which can be obtained by e-mailing Amanda Casanellas (drums) at: amandac@kajen.com. Homepage: http://www.kajen.com/~amandac/home.html * Bent Spanner Arty Banner (S) ---------------------------- The Malmo rockers pass on the information that their forthcoming album is delayed and will not be released before Christmas, as previously stated. The new date is set for February 1998. To compensate, the band is planning to release a 4-track 7" single in time for the Christmas holidays. * Robert Johnson & Punchdrunks (S) -------------------------------- The mono surf heroes on the Strange Edge label on will play together with favourites bob hund on the following dates on their tour: 10/12 Almhult Rocklands 11/12 Copenhagen Pumpehuset (DK) 12/12 Lund Palladium 13/12 Malmo KB 14/12 Stockholm Studion (all ages) 15/12 Stockholm Studion (age: 18+) You might have seen them on TV 2 two weeks ago (Let's Go show) or read the 4+ review in Aftonbladet or 4/5 review in Edge for their third album "Aloha from Havana" released in October. Check out their homepage for more information at: http://www.birdnest.se/Robban/biografi_robban.htm * Cessna (SF) ----------- Tampere-based Cessna will have a track on the compilation CD given away with the next issue of the Japanese magazine Beikoku Ongaku. The song in question is "Continental Diner", taken from their double 3" CD "Bordeaux", released on Radio Khartoum this autumn. The band has also finished working on their next release, a three-track 7" single on the US label Fantastic Records. According to plan the single should be released early 1998. More Cessna info: http://www.sci.fi/~solaris/cessna/ * First Harvest - Greatest Unsigned 1997 (S) ------------------------------------------ Blekingska Nationen in Lund (S) ran a demo band contest throughout the year, where the four best bands were to be included on a compilation CD-EP, and play at the contest gala/release party. A few weeks ago, Blekingska Nationen picked out the winners from more than 150 demo tapes they had received, and the winners were (in no order): * First Floor Power (Malmo) * The Pang (Lund) * Plastic Soul (Lund) * Shallow Soundwave (Goteborg) The gala/release party was held at (no surprise) the Blekingska Nationen venue in Lund on November 28th, with the four bands performing on stage in front of specially invited people from record labels and media as well as the regular venue crowd. The first 250 guests received a copy of the compilation for free. Only 400 copies were made, each one numbered and each one with a somewhat different cover. The compilations that were not given away at the gala are now the properties of the included bands, so the only way to get a copy is to contact one of the bands. The only band of the four I know has got a homepage w/contact info is Shallow Soundwave: http://www.lysator.liu.se/~chief/shallow.html And as you probably have guessed by now - yes, there will be a "Second Harvest"! Starting in January 1998, Blekingska Nationen in Lund will accept demo tapes from artists/bands who want to participate in the Spring/Summer demo contest, ie. Second Harvest - Greatest Unsigned 1998. If this is also a success, there will be a Third Harvest (Autumn/Winter 1998) and so on. Want to know more? Contact Bjorn Johnson at: stv92bjo@student1.lu.se or send your demos directly to Blekingska Nationen at the address: Blekingska nationen, att: Bandbokare, Masvagen 11, 227 33 Lund. * Eskilstuna Popstad 98 (S) ------------------------- Right now, no one within the arranger group for the Eskilstuna Popstad 98 festivities are sleeping. As you might have read in this column (?) Eskilstuna was voted Pop City in Sweden for 1998. More info, only in Swedish unfortunately, can be found on the web (see link section below) The celebration party is held in Eskilstuna (of course) at Stadshotellet between January 29 -> 31, and a load of bands will play - a bunch on the main stage and nine local unsigned bands on the "Demo stage". The nine unsigned bands have been selected from 57 (!) local acts who submitted a demo tape each to the arrangers. A promo compilation CD with 15 local and 3 non-local bands will also be made exclusively for the celebration party and by local record label Strawberry Songs. A Popstad 98 program magazine with information about the Eskilstuna bands and history is also in the making. The festivities does not only present a lot of bands, there will also be contests, seminars, workshops and so on. The full schedule will be released on December 9th, so stay tuned to this place in space for more on this. * Popstad 98 Information: http://www.sr.se/p3/release2.htm http://www.sr.se/p3/popstad.htm http://www.mds.mdh.se/~adb95hln/blue/popstad_1.htm http://www.eskilstuna.se/popstad/ * Stadshotellet in Eskilstuna: http://www.stadshotellet-etuna.se/ * Strawberry Songs: http://www.rockfile.se/strawberry.html * Fidget (S) ---------- Daniel Claeson (guitar) of Fidget will visit the recently awarded Pop City 98 Eskilstuna in March in order to hold a seminar about how to work with demo tapes and everyhing surrounding that topic. Should be a very interesting event. * Gentle Tuesday (S) ------------------ Eskilstuna soft breeze-popsters Gentle Tuesday's latest 7" single "What My Sister Wants", which was released in 500 copies on their own label "A Boy Wonder Release" on October 6th, is not available anymore. All the copies have been sold. Therefor, the band will release a new 3-track 7" single at the end of December! More Gentle Tuesday songs to the people! * Lemonator (SF) -------------- Their new EP "Pronounced Lemon Ate Her" was released on the band's own label Grandpop Records on November 21st. The songs included are: 'Shine', 'Picture Perfect Sky', 'Don't Know Mice Elf' and the Police cover 'Next To You'. At the moment, the band is enjoying their well deserved break, but Larry is working on his side project The Krispies, who recently released their debut single "(I'm On The) Radio/Dear Louise". An album with The Krispies is planned for an early 1998 release on Zen Garden. Next up for our friends in Lemonator is the release of their debut album "Yellow" in Japan, possibly with two extra tracks - 'Round' and 'Picture Perfect Sky'. More Lemonator: http://www.musicfinland.com/lemonator/ * Lousy (S) --------- Tenhult/Goteborg-based Lo-fi smokers Lousy will appear on the well-known Lund student radio pop show TANDEM on December 10th. The band will play a couple of acoustic songs in the studio between a Superchunk interview, loads of music and a "best of the year" recap. More TANDEM: http://www.radioaf.com/program/tandem * This week's interesting Releases -------------------------------- Not many - actually only the delayed Cloudberry Jam single "Out of Control" on NONS Records which is out now. * New Bands on Tour ----------------- Just way too many to include here, take a look at the Gig Guide pages on the Scandinavian Indie website.

Take care! Jonas ----------------------------- Date: Thu, 4 Dec 1997 23:26:50 -0800 From: xander@sirius.com Subject: Eestipop The list seems rather dead today. Wondering if it's working? As my "test" message, I give you a little excerpt from a batch of reviews I recently did for another forum. These are a couple of tapes which I got from list-member Lauri Liivak, and I am rather impressed. I'd been hearing some demos of Lauri's band over the summer, but this was the first time I saw actual produce from his label. And I must say that it's all nicely done, nicely packaged, as cassettes go. Unfortunately cassettes seem to be the most viable format in Estonia, and that's a shame because this music deserves a better format. Bizarre "Cafe de Flor" cassette Think of Doris Days (dreamy trip-pop) crossed with Dif Juz's "Extractions" lp. Except that Bizarre are much more consistently good than Doris Days. Boy/Girl vocals, sometimes the female vocals head into Virginia Astley territory. Melodic and moody. There are a couple songs by them on the last chain-tape Erik made, but I don't think "Summer Rain" is at all representative of what I like about the band. V/A: "Sue Darling is Back to Forwards" cassette. not as consistent as the Bizarre album, but there are a few tracks here which shouldn't be missed. side one: 1. The Chance - remember the time slow, sweet jangly guitars, nice vocals, kinda reminds of old ARKane. 2. Anacrones - Venus 3. Delusion - A Dream About You both of these are a little to straight and macho for me. 4. Beat Boy - Girl the name alone might tell you that this piece is rather cliched. Actually, it's just the lyrics which don't seem to be saying much, a pastiche of least-common-denominator pop lyrics. The music on the other hand, is quite alright, and summed up with the vocals, not completely unlike Acid House Kings and their subgenre of bedroom pop, with a slightly higher ratio of synths to guitars. Change the lyrics into Estonian, and I'm sure that I would really like this. 5. Karpeetor - Piping Frogman sure to annoy some, but in find myself boogeying around to this one. Jews harp, bagpipes, noisy lead guitar and lots drums, this doesn't fit the "indie" genre at all, but it's is eclectic and independent. 6. Psychoterror - Ebanormaalne now, when in first told you that in was listening to popmusic from Estonia, this is probably what you were expecting. heavymetal. Next! 7. Tik - T.A.K.E. if Yvonne are just Crispy Ambulance in disguise, than Tik are the Minny Pops. Which is the better band to be. Of course, I don't have my Minny Pops records anymore, but this is quite nice in small doses. If this is unintelligible, think of nice drone pop a la early Factory with a very very thick accent. 8. Afternooning Plague Family - Sues Seeds predecessor to Bizarre, and good stuff it is. Lots of flutes, a bit on the dubby aethereal side. not at all what i had expected though. as i had been told that Bizarre's first album was more of a shoe-gazer affair. and this track seems to have nothing to with that. side two: 1. Isadora Flore - Make Up & Martini lovely pop song, not quite cocktail, but classy all the same. 2. the Chance - The Way Your Mind Looks Through 3. Nyrok City - Watcha Back 4. Bizarre - Barcode Warrior 12 perhaps my favorite Bizarre track to date. huge dramatic sweep to this one, it could a james bond theme for the nineties. 5. Pedigree - Red Angel Case 6. Flag - New Gear 7. von Suck - Vajuv Vesi 8. A.P.F. & Bizarre - Laizy Sun more great flute-laced dubby breathy stuff. the Bizarre album is the better deal, but i'd say the comp is worth the price of admission for the Isadore Flore and Bizarre tracks alone.
