And wouldn't you know it, the other day this kid waltzes into the office and says, "Look what I found for $2!" and waves a copy of "What makes it go?" in my face. Apparently some reviewer hadn't taken to much of a liking to it. I tried beating him up for it, but no luck.... I'm thrilled at least that they'll be playing here soon and not with a band like Ben Folds Five who are fine on their own but attract a totally different crowd... -martin. ------------------------------ Date: Thu, 30 Apr 1998 14:36:27 +0200 From: Erik Soderstrom Subject: [LIST] Music on the TV [01-May-98] ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Scandinavian Indie MUSIC ON THE TV Scandinavian Indie May 1 -> 7, 1998 by Erik Soderstrom Day Date Artist/What TV Program Channel Time --- ----- ---------------------- ------------------- ----------- ----- Fri 1/5 Caesar's Palace En Kvall Med Luuk TV 4 16.25 R Polar Music Prize Polar Music Prize SVT 2 19.00 Savage Garden Line New Pop Fest.

They split up in September 1997. Officially the reason was a lack of commercial success, but unofficially there had also been some problems within the band and between the members. The release in January 1998 of the compilation CD "COMPENDIUM GREATEST HITS", with 16 old and two new songs, was the main attraction at the burial of Gangway-- the anti heroes par excellence of Danish pop music. Here can you find all you want to know ( and more ) about Gangway : ------------------------------ Date: Sun, 3 May 1998 15:42:45 +0000 From: "Thierry" Subject: Naked when you come After recording their new album in Malmo, Saint Etienne were on the danish radio and they wished to listen to "Naked when you come" by the lollipops, one of the biggest hits from the sixties, specially in Sweden. D.J. Noize heard it and he decided to make a remix of it. Now 35 years after, it s again a big hit in Denmark. It s sounds a bit like Portishead. A pity St Etienne didn t record it themselves, I m sure they could have made something wonderful of it. -- Thierry ------------------------------ Date: Mon, 4 May 1998 13:59:53 +0200 From: (Marten Sahlen) Subject: Nursery Injection (Was Re: Festival Extravaganza!) > No festival organizer sleeps these days, which has resulted > in a frenzy of new artists and bands being booked, cancelled, > re-arranged and rumoured.

But honestly, doesn't it seem like the same old names are appearing everywhere? Want something new and fresh and truly radical? Then look no longer than to Stockholm, where The Nursery - a society promoting experimental culture - are arranging a festival throughout the month of June... partly funded be Stockholm European Cultural Capital 1998. All sorts of fringe music will be showcased during the festival: ambient, noise, isolationism, tribal, dark folk, weird electronica, experimental techno and drum'n'bass, you name it... and there will also be speeches, theatre performances, and other crossover projects. * Nursery Injection (June and first week of July, Stockholm Sweden) Panasonic (SF), Lydia Lunch (USA), Aube (Jap), Zoviet France (UK), Sol Invictus (UK), Muslimgauze (UK), Orphx (Can), MSBR (Jap), Troum (Ger), Thomas Koener (Ger), Lasse Marhaug Band (Nor), Hybryds (Bel), Shifts (NL) Peter Broetzmann (Ger), Tactile (UK), Con-Dom (UK), Government Alpha (Jap), Children of the Apocalypse (USA), Disinformation (UK), Touch label night (UK), Mego label night (A), Zbigniew Karkowski (Jap/PL), Column One (Ger).

Anyone know anything about them? I have not heard this band yet but I do know some things about them. The band members are Mikael Matsson (ex RED SLEEPING BEAUTY), Christer Nilsson and Toby Thorsen (ex STEVEPOPS). They have a 7" out on the American label "Blackbean And Placenta Tape Club" and they have also been represented on a compilation released by that label (their contribution to that compilation was a cover version of "Last christmas" by WHAM :) . I know that at least two of the band members have been, and possibly still are, subscribed to this list.

Saaskilahti" Subject: self-promotion: Cessna news Hi there, our pop band Cessna has got a new 7" out on the fab US label Fantastic Records. It is called "My Blue Anglia" and it has three tracks ranging from the groovy elegance of the title track (a new recording of the song some of you may remember from the "McBain" compilation) to the high velocity garage-y pop with rough edges on the flip. The 7" will be available very soon from your favourite mail order (Parasol, Carrot Top, Jigsaw, Claire de Leon, Roundabout in the USA, Mind The Gap in Europe; hopefully some other places as well), and from the label by writing to JJ at Some cool indie stores in the major cities across the globe may also end up with a copy or two, so keep browsing if mail order is not your thang. The said 7", as well as our earlier releases ("Holiday on Ice" 7" EP and "Bordeaux" double 3" cd) can also be ordered with friendly prices directly from the band by writing to me ( Trades to cool pop thingies are also welcomed. ...and I've still got some copies of the Rocketship 7" on Jigsaw in case somebody missed out on it... bye Kimmo kimmo saaskilahti * * aleksis kiven katu 30 a 14 * 33200 tampere * finland ------------------------------ Date: Wed, 6 May 1998 23:01:20 +0200 From: (RBarczinski) Subject: If you were here ???
