I saw Freewheel live two days ago and they were completely lovely. Ok, maybe 1-2 songs were a bit dull, but the rest is quite charming pop music. Like Mommyheads & Paul Simon combined a bit with Ben Folds Five. Yeah, charming is the word. Petter wrote: > Or listen to some real country such as Gram Parsons or the Flying > Burrito Brothers.

I dont think Freewheel have any intentions to do country music actually. Think they are doing pop music in a quite old classic vein, but maybe with a little country feel to it. But I agree that people should listen to all those bands you mentioned, especially Palace. Mats Larsson wrote: > I don't care much about all these softy nerdy bands in this country. > But they don't disturb me or anything. BUT Freewheel has a lousy singer > that sings even lousier lyrics. And on top of this boring Academic > predictable music. You can here that they come from Lund. Hey, wait just a second. Freewheel from Lund? Ok, the singer is originally from Akarp which is pretty much right between Malmo and Lund and he has lived as much in Malmo as in Lund. The bassplayer is definitely from Malmo and the rest of them are from Stockholm. By the way, I think the singer sings great - the lyrics I am not that into.What I am trying to say is that Freewheel is a really good band and that they dont deserve those harsh words. And just out of interest: how can you hear when a band is from Lund? Just curious? Because I thought so too before, but nowadays that scene is pretty much gone. Loosegoats, Sideshow Bob, Satanic Surfers, Craftworld, Langhorns, Favorita, Chunks, In A Spring are all bands that dont sound much like they are from Lund, do they? What bands of today in Lund sound like they are from Lund? Maybe Super Eight Group, Soul Ryders, Thirdimension (recently signed to Telegram), but I am not even sure that they are typically Lundish. So tell me what is. Jan Sundstrom wrote: > But i never heard of Club 8. One hit wonder, or am > i just being ignorant? Neither I guess. Club 8 dont get that much attention in Sweden, but they are quite huge in the southern parts of Europe. Our college radio show TANDEM had the Club 8-songwriter Johan Angergard as guest last week and he said that Club 8 were out looking for a new label, while his other band Acid House Kings were about to release an album in the US. I think the label was called Shelflife. Micke Rehnstrom wrote: >> 18/2 LOOSEGOATS + WARD J LITTLE > > I heard some interesting info about this one.

Those two times I have seen Loosegoats play unplugged is probably two of the best shows I have ever seen a swedish band do. Their latest single "Disdialogic" gave a hint on what to come from Loosegoats, because the b-sides were, in my opinion, the best things they have done so far (if you forget about one of the songs there). So if you are in the neighbourhood, I definitely think you should see this gig. Take care!

Maybee they get better if your able to watch a whoul show:) The bands you drop above have something to say, and puts some kinds of feelings into their audience. I want more from a band than just a "charming" feeling. I have nothing against good pop music. But Freewheel ain't one. > Hey, wait just a second. Freewheel from Lund?

This may sound a bit hilarious and ridiculous, but to me Lund is a "musical state of mind". Bands from Lund are so often so "right". A lot of them are 90% style, music and fashion, and 10% fresh musical ideas. Bands like Loosegoats, Sideshow bob and the Satanic surfers are good examples. How "new" is their music? They are just copys, both musically and fashionably of their own favourites. Not to mention Super Eight group and the other two(huuu....). Maybe Favorita tries to do something of thier own. To bad they play so boring music. I like Chunks and In A Spring. But how original do they sound? Btw, I guess that in a couple of months there will be 10 bands from Lund that sounds and looks like Radiohead and/or The Veeeeerrrrrrvvveeeeeee. /Mats, Malmo ------------------------------ Date: Thu, 12 Feb 1998 21:17:05 +0100 From: "Mikael Persson" Subject: RE: Sin's Music on the Radio [16-Feb-98] Hi!

Excuse me, but does every band have to have an original sound? Sure, it's rather sad when a band copy other songs, but complaining about their music as a whole because it sounds a bit like other bands; why? > Btw, > I guess that in a couple of months there will be 10 bands from Lund that > sounds and looks like Radiohead and/or The Veeeeerrrrrrvvveeeeeee. That would be absolutely lovely IMHO. As long as their songs don't sound exactly like "Fake Plastic Trees" or "The Drugs Don't Work" that is! > /Mats, Malmo Yes, it's pretty obvious that you're from Malmo. Why is it so hard for people from Malmo to appreciate Lund and like the people living here? I suppose it's a a bit of a "hate-chain": Helsingborg hates Malmo and Malmo hates Lund. Reasons? Well, Helsingborg hates Malmo beacause they have a better football team. Malmo hates Lund because of the university and our so called "posh" accent. In a word: Jelousy.

Thanks for the info on Studion and such! It's a great help! I wonder if anyone has checked out our web site, knows us, or digs any of the music samples. We really want to make some freinds in Sweden/Norway. We should be playing there in May if we can find a couple gigs. Let me know what you think. I wonder if there's room for Baby Snufkin in the Scandinavian music scene. Last year we played Solnahallen in Stockholm and Sentrum in Oslo with No Doubt sold out. Though we're not particularly big No Doubt fans or anything like them, it was fun. Were any of you there?

Club 8 dont get that much attention in Sweden, but they > are quite huge in the southern parts of Europe. I'm not sure if they are "huge" in southern Europe, but it's true that all the Scandinavian "twee" bands are much better appreciated outside of Scandinavia. It's just appalling to see that the Club 8 album is probably still consistently in the "Tweenet Charts" (a monthly poll where you can vote for your favorite albums at the Tweenet site) after being out since 1996 (? - can't check because I loaned the disc out last night). BTW, the 7" which preceded the album is now sold out at the label, and it's definitely worth having (I'd say that there are only 4 songs on the album which are as good as the three on the 7"), so if you see it, consider yourselves warned. > Our college radio show > TANDEM had the Club 8-songwriter Johan Angergard as guest last week and he > said that Club 8 were out looking for a new label, while his other band > Acid House Kings were about to release an album in the US. I think the > label was called Shelflife. I'm guessing that this will be the album which was released on Harmony a few months ago in Japan? It's called Advantage and I think it's by far the best thing AHK have done. The production is a huge leap beyond bedroom fidelity, and the result is much richer, organic, and at times much more (effectively!) melancholy than I would have previously expected. They've got a female singer now, who does the lead vocals on 3 or so of the tracks, and her voice is gorgeous. As if that weren't enough, there's also a tiny wooden clothespin trapped inside the CD's plastic case. And while we're on the topic of under-appreciated wimpy pop bands, may I also recommend Den Baron? I just got this wonderful 7" on the Apricot label (Germany, but I understand that the artist - it's just one guy - is Swedish). Happy/sad guitar and bedroom keyboard stuff. The last song is absolutely lovely and features one of the best titles I've read in ages: "I can see the flowers in the garden through the window but I can't touch them".
