How many independent booking agencies have we still > got in Sweden? The press release says they're going to keep both companies the way they are - ie. the offices and staff will still be the same, but they will work together (well, it'll be one company, but keeping them separate for a moment) when it comes to the foreign market, festivals and using each others locations (Motor with their offices in Oslo, Copenhagen, Malmo and Gothenburg and EMA with offices in Stockholm and Helsinki). Now this does raise a couple of questions. It's clear they will have a common ground when it comes to the economical issues. Then, in the light of the recently cancelled Lollipop festival (where EMA were involved in arranging it, and handled the economy parts among other things) which is also a contender for the "biggest festival in Sweden" where the Hultsfred Festival is the other, where Motor is the major player... Does this mean that a) EMA cancelled Lollipop because they were going to bring in Motor under their umbrella - and the economy didn't allow them to do both? b) EMA cancelled Lollipop because of Motor's involvement in the "rival" festival Hultsfred (I can see an intreaguing web of events here, with Hakan Waxegard (previously Hultsfred - now Lollipop) in the middle, EMA - Lollipop - now with Motor - Hultsfred) with the money, and Motor with a major leg in the Hultsfred Festival - and all with various demands on each other, but I'm probably just imagining it ;)) or perhaps c) EMA cancelled Lollipop because they realized they didn't have enough informal channels in order to pull a major festival off, which means they went by the book, and that got too expensive (it is the story I have heard), then because of it, decided to get someone with these informal connections, ie. Motor? How much of the Luger booking agency does EMA own today by the way? Is it possible that booking bands will become more expensive after this? EMA is (or at least used to be) extremely expensive. //Erik ------------------------------ Date: Sat, 30 May 1998 16:39:06 +0200 From: Erik Soderstrom Subject: Bear Quartet in Sthlm tonight?

The man rules. If you're the least interested in reggae, and related music, this man will blow your head clean off! (I'm not talking summer disco reggae here, the dominant genre since 1983 approx.) It's slow, deep, and pitch black! A must! Go out now and buy his "Forces of Victory"-album, so you can sing along at Hultsfred. The lyrics are brilliant as well, agitational but still poetic. Don't miss!

The Kalas tour has been scheduled now - bob hund, Caesar's Palace, Janne Kask, Beverage Soundsystem (with guests at each location) - Weeping Willows are mentioned as well as Lloyd Cole who apparently will play at all dates on the second leg of the tour. Though I wonder if Caesar's Palace will play at all of these (they are slated for the Arvika as well as SommarRocken festivals, on the same dates as Vastervik and Umea below): 2/7 Goteborg 3/7 Varberg 4/7 Halmstad 6/7 Borgholm 7/7 Lund 8/7 Helsingborg 9/7 Ahus 10/7 Visby 11/7 Vastervik 13/7 Stockholm 16/7 Gavle 17/7 Sundsvall 18/7 Umea //Erik ------------------------------ Date: Mon, 1 Jun 1998 11:18:16 -0700 From: "Brian Curtis (Wasser)" Subject: Bob Hund Help I'm a long way from Sweden right now, so any help would be appreciated.

I think their 10 track album from 1994, the one with the figures of clay on the cover, is their absolute best one... I don't know why i like it more than the other ones. It's just that you get anorther feeling when you listen to it. It's sounds more like they do live i think. I just love it... In my opinion is the absolutely worse one "omslag: Martin Kann" from 1996. I think it sounds like a bad copy of there early records. Does anyone know when their new single will be released?

My favorites would be Omslag: Martin Kann, and the debut 6 song CD from 1993. Got a message from Bob Hund's manager yesterday (Sunday) which said that the new single would be out on Monday. I assumed that meant today and not a week from today. Also have to disagree with the assessment of Le Mans as "spanish whimp-poppers". No distortion, true, but hardly wimpy. More like rich and melancholy. I generally think of wimp pop in terms of amateurish recordings, playing skills, naivety. Of course, I think that a lot of "wimp pop" is brilliant in its fragility, vulnerability. In fact, i could probably make an argument that (early) Bob Hund is quite close to "wimp pop" in spirit. Maybe they could have been on Sarah if they had just used less distortion? ;) Alexander Radio Khartoum. http://www.algonet.se/~elegans/radiok/ ------------------------------ Date: Tue, 02 Jun 1998 10:26:50 +0100 From: "johanna.hillgren" Subject: Re: SV: Bob Hund Help Erik Soderstrom wrote: >> Does anyone know when their new single will be released?

My favorites would be Omslag: > Martin Kann, and the debut 6 song CD from 1993. And I second that opinion. I think that my problem was that my first contact with the band was a live concert and then, when the first full-length came out, I was naive enough to think it would be just as good as the live show (and that is truly naive, since no record can be that great). So I was a bit disappointed, because I thought that that album, even if it is a great album with many highlights, lacked a lot of the intensity the band had when playing live. And I think that "Omslag: Martin Kann" is better in that respect. But my absolute favourite record is their first, self-titled, ep. Trust me: songs like "Rundgang, graslok, fagelsang" and "Fotoalbumet" will still be labeled 'Swedish rock classics' twenty years from now. The "Ett fall och en losning" ep is also among their best records, if you ask me. But then again - one can just pick a record at random. It is impossible to fail with this band ;). /Micke, who smiled all the way through the "No depression" special on Musikjournalen last week. ------------------------------ Date: Tue, 2 Jun 1998 06:12:09 -0400 From: Mo Holkar / UKG Subject: Latvian indie arrives!

So if youíre in Stockholm (or somewhere not too far away) today, not doing anything, you would be a fool and an idiot (or, perhaps, just not a fan of that kind of music :) if you didnít run down to Studion tonight! If you donít know anything about Elliott Smith: expect a sympathetic and pretty shy guy that doesnít look like the average Oscar nominee, that can make an acoustic guitar sound like itís alive, with a voice that could melt a rock and that writes totally amazing, beautiful, fantastic songs with very strong and personal lyrics. The venue in Oslo, So What, was great btw. Really small, filled with people and smoke and with a terrific DJ (Built to Spill, Fuck, Sebadoh, Sportsguitar, Guided By Voices.... I had to check that my record collection hadnít been stolen when I got home :) Not sure that Studion will provide the same perfect atmosphere and intimacy but even if not itís still worth going there. morgan@luger.se wrote: > The email address to So What is: iindepen@online.no > The address is: Grensen 9 (that's very central) > The Phone number is: +47 22 33 64 66 > The show isn't sold out, the one in Stockhom isn't either (but it's pretty > close...) > And the shows are definitely not cancelled. > > NOW the list is working like it should, huh?

I might as well post a gig review, I went to see these guys last tuesday at Grona Lund. It was an indoor acoustic gig, and it will be broadcasted (AFAIK) on thursday on radio stockholm 103,3. I honestly didn't know a thing about these guys, I just went with a friend of mine who is a big Jellyfish-fan. They are just two guys, standing with a guitar and a tambourine at the front of the stage. But it was a nice relaxed feeling, and the guys had humour, played covers by Tomas Dolby and asked the audience for requests. The music was something like surf-pop with a thought, positive but not cheery. I doubt more than a handful at Grona Lund had heard any songs with Umajets, and one guy behind me said "I guess we're all here for the Jellyfish-songs", but they didn't play any, AFAIK. I'm bad at references, since this isn't my bag, but this might be the US answer to Teenage Fanclub in a humble small scale mood.

Is there any danish music worth listening to or is there only beer drinking rawk and Eurodisco ? I have tried to answer but I think the best way to do it, would be to make a tape with danish pop and start a tape chain. Now I have compiled a tape with my favourite danish music. If you are interested, send me your name and adress and I will make a list and send the tape to the first who answers. My email is viridian@post5.tele.dk As you will notice a great numbers of the bands on the tape have released their material on Cloudland, which is the most interesting label in Dk.

Rocktropolis' site. Besides interviews with artists from the album like the Foo Fighters, Filter, Ween, X (with a Doors cover!) and The Cure, you'll also hear movie sound clips and interviews with actress Gillian Anderson, X-Files creator Chris Carter, and William B. Davis, The Cigarette Man himself. The other bands and artists on the soundtrack are Sarah McLachlan, Sting with Aswad, The Cardigans, Bjork, Tonic, Soul Coughing and The Dust Brothers with the X-Files Theme.

No problem! Actually, there are links to Grona Lund and Muller on the Sin website already (on the "Gig Related" page - Venues - Stockholm). ;) Though it's definitely cool to see them record the concerts and add them to the site! I'll jump on the SOOL concert right after the X-Files album. //Erik ------------------------------ Date: Tue, 2 Jun 1998 18:43:38 -0700 From: xander@sirius.com Subject: Re: starting a danish tape chain On the Denmark question, on my trip I picked up an album by the Axel Boys Quartet, which seemed to lounge, on the cheesier side. Only had a chance to play it once since I've been back at home, but what really left a bad taste in my mouth was the fact that they had to go and cover that Ace of Base song. I recognized a couple of names on the list, and wondered if these people are really still around: >13- Sort sol Common knowledge that there was a 7" by these guys on 4ad? In 1981. >8- Gangway - Come back as a dog >From the album "That s Life" (1996) I've got a friend in Germany who absolutely worships these guys. Or at least something that they did in the mid-80s. My friend will probably be pretty impressed if you say that this isn't a re-issue. >5- Harvest moon - Down >From the album "Redletterdays" (1995) I only recently figured out what a red (and black) letter days are. Is it just me, or is this expression not particularly common in English, despite the plethora of bands and/or titles using one or the other expression?
