Not _one_ bad band ... well, I wouldn't go to see Randy, but that's just me and my taste. I wonder if Teenage Fanclub is touring Scandinavia at that time, or if they're just popping by to play the festival? Anyone? //Erik ------------------------------ Date: Tue, 03 Mar 1998 00:37:34 +0100 From: Erik Soderstrom Subject: Re: The bands at Hultsfred > Here are some of the bands who are coming to Hultsfred: > It's going to be a great festival this year too! > But where are the really big bands? Maybe they release them later... I agree, the big names are not yet in there. Most of the bands I like to see are Swedish in fact. Strange that.. I thought they would slap The Other Festival (tm) in the face with stuff like My Bloody Valentine, The Verve, Jesus & Mary Chain etc. Maybe later? //Erik ------------------------------ Date: Mon, 2 Mar 1998 18:56:22 EST From: Spunko13 Subject: Re: Non-Scan: Pere Ubu Hey Erik!

Is it anyone who knows how many more bands it will be? Jesue and Mary Chain and My bloody Valentine would be nice. Primal Scream and Radiohead would also be great. You have to agree that Hawaii is not the place for bob hund. A bob hund concert is so much about the contact betwen the band and the public.

I don't think that they really broke up. In fact, they've recorded a few things in the last year. One for me, and a couple of covers. But i don't think the band is a priority anymore for some of the members, and that they aren't interested in playing live anymore. Which is a pity - I would have liked to have seen them. When is the thing in PopSided from? Just to keep the rumors going, there was some talk about doing a concept album...

Was the article comparing the new Ubu album with the the film, or with the film's soundtrack? (Which was composed and played by Neil Young, and is nothing less than amazing). Those who can make it to the shows in Denmark should definitely go. I saw Pere Ubu live three times during the mid-80's and they are such a good live band... Mr. Thomas is a great entertainer, take my words for it. ------------------------------ Date: Tue, 3 Mar 1998 12:24:52 +0100 From: j.sundstrom@ekuc.se (Jan Sundstrom) Subject: Re: SV: The bands at Hultsfred > Yes, it's very strange.

The bar WC opened at 18.00, and i landed there at 19. By the time, I found out that there was only going to be free beer until 20, so I was sort of in a hurry ;-) Maybe I missed something in the first hour, but there were no traces that anything fun had happened. Quenched four Abro-sponsoerd bottles and continued with some serious stargazing. Surprisingly few "kandisar" were there, I could only recognize John guitarpalyer from Honey Is Cool (is he living in Stockholm now?), the singer from Fireside and two of the boys from Kent (together with 30 beerbottles or so!). Not much journos either... Pretty boring, not much happening apart from the beer, olives and chilinuts, so we went home early.... I was going to take Roberts (latvian indie) with me to this party, but his trip was delayed. OK, Roberts, you didn't miss much.

I don't know when yet, and I don't think it is official and/or sure yet. But if they are playing I guess it will be when they already are in Sweden so i would say sometime around that first week in April.

And if you're in the malmoe region the next couple of weeks you could have a beer (compulsory) and check us out at either KB:s 1 rok 10/3 or Estrad 18/3. It's actually our first two gigs so we might be a bit shaky... ------------------------------ Date: 03 Mar 1998 19:44:54 +0100 From: Robert Cumming Subject: Finn-indie according to P3 Musikjournalen did a Finnish pop special on Monday. Not a whisper about Cessna or Aknestik of course (the philistines! how could they!) but intriguing nevertheless. Top of the list were the Supperheads, Jupiter Park and Lemonator, who all got interviewed in Swedish and gave varying accounts of why Finnish pop music has never really made it big. Megalomania is clearly not a Finnish strength. Funnily enough, the blame for some of the problem was laid at the feet of the Finnish record companies, who seem scared to touch bands that sing in English. The Supperheads' latest single (somebody remind me what it's called) is nice in a sort of Wannadies way, but rhymes 'gobbledygook' and (wait for it) 'melody book'... *Robert is quietly sick in a corner* Larry and the Lefthanded also got an airing, but the best music was from a band called the T-Bones. Most interesting stuff, at least covering some ground that's not already been worn to death by the British and the Swedish. Anybody know anything about them? Robert ------------------------------ Date: 03 Mar 1998 19:56:26 +0100 From: Robert Cumming Subject: A 'Grand' (TM) Day Out You remember where you read it first? Stockholm gay paper QX's latest issue has a feature on the 'hottest people under 30' at the moment, and one of them is Grand Tone Music's Nina Ramsby. So it's finally out in the open that she's a lesbian, even though she got 'married' to her girlfriend Angela last summer. There's no interview, but Nina OK'd the publicity. As far as I know that makes her the first out gay person in the wonderful world of scan-indie, something which makes at least me very happy. Can we have some of the guys now? At least some of us are into other stuff than opera and eurodisco... Robert, token queer :) ------------------------------ Date: Tue, 03 Mar 1998 20:21:16 +0000 From: "johanna.hillgren" Subject: Re: A 'Grand' (TM) Day Out Robert Cumming wrote: > You remember where you read it first? > > Stockholm gay paper QX's latest issue has a feature on the 'hottest > people under 30' at the moment, and one of them is Grand Tone Music's > Nina Ramsby.

I'm just sad I didn't know this yesterday when I made an interview with Jim in GTM... Way to go Nina! / Johanna - and yes, you will probably see me there in the front row at the GTM gig in Gothenburg this saturday. PS. Robert, do you like Wallace and Gromit? The episode "A Grand Day out" when they fly to the moon to get some cheese is not as charming as their later adventures but still one of the best animations ever. ------------------------------ Date: Tue, 03 Mar 1998 22:33:38 +0100 From: Erik Soderstrom Subject: Re: SV: The bands at Hultsfred > Yes, it's very strange.

Agreed - I can easily list 50-100 bands (not on the list) I'd like to see, but what chances are there Hultsfred Festival will get them? I mean bands like Bardo Pond, Catherine Wheel, Mojave 3, Slow Smile, Bowery Electric, Kaspar Hauser, Curve, Cranes... No, I won't list them all. ;) They said that the bands they now revealed were 1/3 of the total, so there's room left for some good ones... Grand Tone Music should have been in there too. > You have to agree that Hawaii is not the place for bob hund. A bob hund > concert is so much about the contact betwen the band and the public. I > wish that bob hund was an unknown band again that played on st dans. They're too big these days. Unfortunately, because I agree with you - them playing on the biggest stage makes me think twice about going to see them even. //Erik ------------------------------ Date: Tue, 03 Mar 1998 22:45:18 +0100 From: Erik Soderstrom Subject: Re: Latvian tape-chain At 11:10 1998-03-03 +0100, Micke Rehnstrom wrote: > I received the latest Latvian tape comp that Roberts has put together > yesterday.

Oh, it'll take me at least a week before I can pass it on - as I'm off to Gothenburg and have loads of stuff to do the next couple of weeks in other places than here at home. > /Micke, who has not heard FLY yet but already likes them, because a band > with the same name as a track on "All mod cons" cannot be bad, can they? They can't be bad because two years ago when people first started to mention them (they even played at the Emmaboda festival right?) everyone said good things about them.

The event was much appreciated, both locally and nationally. In Umea the youth culture and the music is taken seriously! And soon the big music party of the spring/winter is here: UMEA OPEN, a two-day follow-up to the success of the 1997 PopStad celebrations. Time: April 3-4. Place: Umea, Universum (three stages). A Press conference about the event will be helt on March 5th (thursday this week) at 10am (10.00) at Tullkammaren, Umea Kultur. Media contact: Cecilia Gustavsson, Phone: +46-(0)90-163474.

ABLE (Harry Lime) The new album with the title "Lost Love Songs" was mastered two weeks ago at Cutting Room, and everything went fine (so they didn't have to re-master it like Cloudberry Jam had to with their new album...) and if everything goes as planned, it'll be out as soon as April! The twelve songs on it are: Trouble Among The Horses, For A Purpose, Thrill, As Long As These Eyes Can See, Sail On A Mill, The End Of It, We Might Never Meet Again, Screw You Around, Push Your Luck, You're My Only One, Can't Share You, Anniversary. A single, "Screw You Around" preceeds the album release and should be out the last week this month (March). //Erik ------------------------------ End of Scandinavian Indie Digest Vol.98 #24 ********************************************
