If you go to http://www.dn.se/ you will find a link to it at the bottom of the page. I guess it will be removed from there no later than tomorrow. The interview, which concentrates more on Alkberg's views on writing (both poetry and pop lyrics) than on the latest album, is in Swedish. Unfortunately I don't have enough time to translate it into English, but perhaps someone else might be able to help those who don't understand Swedish. /Micke ------------------------------ Date: Thu, 27 Aug 1998 11:23:50 -0400 From: MRL@PSFC.MIT.EDU Subject: need help understanding this Hi- Is there any site which can translate Swedish to English? Can anyone tell me what this says? Thanks. http://www3.tripnet.se/magazine_groove/fredany/rec4.htm THE GRINNERS "Psychoville" Caravan Records/HoK Det spelas bast rock'n'roll om man bor norr om den 20:e breddgraden, sa ar det bara. Det ar svart att vara frustrerad och arg om man bor i Skane, dar ar det varmt och gott om tjejer. Grinners lirar rock som om det gallde livet och har ett hogre tempo an norrlandspilen. Pa fullangdsdebuten visar man upp ett sound som ar skitigare an Ruhr-omradet och det ar jag glad for. Grinners liknar mer oldschool garagerock an nagot annat band jag hort. Konstaterar lugnt att snubbar som Dregen borde borja knyppla istallet.

It's hard to be frustrated and angry if you live in Sk}ne [south Sweden, round Malm|], where it's warm and there are plenty of girls. The Grinners play rock like their life depended on it and have a higher tempo than the fast train to Norrland [the very north of Sweden]. On their debut full-lengther they present a sound dirtier than the Ruhr valley, and I'm quite happy about that. The Grinners are more like old-school garage rock than any other band I've heard. Seems obvious to me that blokes like Dregen [Backyard Babies, Hellacopters] might as well start doing embroidery instead."

Trevor ------------------------------ Date: Fri, 28 Aug 1998 19:20:34 EDT From: PoPCaRTeL@aol.com Subject: Help with Twee Bands Hello all! I would like to know of all the TWEE bands that you know of. I have some requirements though. They should not be american and the main singer has to be a girl (a few songs by a guy will not annoy me). Just like Club 8! I have not heard Super, are they like Club 8 or the Cardigans? Ok they do not have to be twee but they should sound happy poppy technoish and the female vocals (Komeda, LeMans, The Cat's Miaow, St Etienne) and no american bands and if they sing in their own language even better. thanks thanks eerie ------------------------------ Date: Sat, 29 Aug 1998 17:42:41 +0200 From: Erik Soderstrom Subject: [LIST] Music on the TV [28-Aug-98] ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Scandinavian Indie MUSIC ON THE TV Scandinavian Indie August 28 -> September 3, 1998 by Erik Soderstrom Day Date Artist/What TV Program Channel Time --- ----- ---------------------- ------------------- ----------- ----- Fri 28/8 Music magazine The Pepsi Chart Kanal 5 18.30 Weeping Willows Lange Leve Musiken SVT 2 20.00 Fireside, etc. Monsters of Boat ZTV 21.00 R Sat 29/8 Music magazine The Pepsi Chart Kanal 5 10.30 R MTV Live MTV Live MTV Nordic 22.00 R Prodigy Live from Red Sq.

Say what?? Last I heard I didn't have any cousins in Finland, and certainly none that are crack junkies or death metallers... In my family we're all nice and clean milk-sipping industrialists. To quote Roky Ericsson: "Don't slander me" ;-) ------------------------------ Date: Mon, 31 Aug 1998 14:40:22 +0300 (EET DST) From: "timo riitamaa." Subject: Re: xxxx Robert wrote in reply to me: >> Hey, if anybody wants to join a yet unnamed small-scale mailing-list (suomen >> viallinen lista?) discussing the really marginal side of music in finnish >> (sorry...) email me. > >Marginal as in 'no one but Kimmo S{{skilahti will listen to this' or >as in 'no one but M}rten Sahlen's crack-addicted death metal freak >cousin from Kajaani will listen to this'? I'm not really sure what Kimmo listens to, but i doubt any Cardigans fans will have any fun out of it... what we were thinking of was something along an approach to music such as free, drone, noise, GBV-esque pop, NZ, old classics like Beefheart, Memphis Goons, Sun Ra, the whole kraut-scene, Waits, Bad Vugum, Trash Can, Sahko, Metamorphos, flaming people who think Goo is Sonic Youth's best album... the entire staff of the Hindupyorailija 'zine is one the list, so that might give you an idea. And ofcourse i'm the guy who's got the AC/DC and FUNK perversions... funky shit mama! In conclusion, i don't think Sahlen's crack-addicted death metal freak cousin would feel himself at home, altough i have heard qlues that a certain member of the melancholic noisepop band Sissy Spacek has played in Turbodet. don't tell him i told you. timo. ps. somebody damnit send me a pre-release promo of the new PJ Harvey. pps. where do i go to find muzik by the Kronos Quartet? ppps. buy the new Hindupyorailija. pppps. since we're discussing scandinavian music here, it wouldn't be too bad to be able to use umlauts. ------------------------------ Date: Mon, 31 Aug 1998 14:28:32 +0200 From: Marten.Sahlen@al.etx.ericsson.se (Marten Sahlen) Subject: Merzbow hits Scandinavia again Hey now, Beware, the king of noise, Masami Akita a.k.a. Merzbow, is on his way to Scandinavia once again. The great response after last year's thunderous show in Stockholm apparently made him want to come back for more. On September 12th he's playing at the Fylkingen club in Stockholm. Supporting are local noise/improv veterans Mats Lindstrom and Soren Runolf. See http://www.fylkingen.se for more info. Merzbow will also be doing a minor tour through Norway before this, with shows in Trondheim, Oslo, and Bergen, but I have no further info on this. B.Y.O.E. (Bring your own earplugs). ------------------------------ Date: Mon, 31 Aug 1998 12:01:43 -0700 From: Radio Khartoum Subject: presents "The Flight of Everson K" Radio Khartoum is pleased to invite you to the premiere of our 18 Frames Per Second series. "The Flight of Everson K" was originally conceived of as a thriller soundtrack. Swedish holidays turning to havoc on the bullet train from the Riviera to Odessa, via Tokyo. But in the end, this record has more to do with childhood Saturday afternoon outings to the cinema. Stumbling in on the middle of a movie, trying to guess what gone before...and staying till the film repeats. Sweden's elusive Chocolate Barry launches the affair from the fancifully stormy shores of Malmo with "Passion," a Technicolor surf reincarnation of the Iberian track from the long lost Grimsby Fishmarket flexi. Next up is a spy theme with an orchestral sweep for the year 2010, courtesy of Estonian dreampop purveyors, Bizarre. "Barcode Warrior Twelve" races across end of the millennium borders in a desperate attempt to stop the clock. Without missing a beat, Cyrille Essiar drops us into a frenetic piano groove. Where Bizarre race against time, "Tempo," a Gainsbourgian caf piece gone berserk, races with it. In gritty black and white with French dialogue. >From here, Parisian gentleman and Watoo Watoo's favorite guitar for hire, Didier Duclos, aka Christine gives us a score for "Barry's Life," a charmed take on the thriller theme, in sunburst Super 8. Probably part of what you missed at the beginning of the film, Sweden's Seashells filter 60's tube TV spy stylings through a quirky guitar waltz which may remind some of Broadcast, and find that it's "A Nice Day to Kill." Instant Life supply an epilogue, as they search by twilight for "Ms. Raki." A blast of pure noir -- from the vantage point of Stockholm watching France watch America.... "The Flight of Everson K" is released on 31 August 1998. This 3" CD can be obtained from the best mailorder sources, as well as directly from Radio Khartoum for U.S. $7, postpaid to any destination in the world. Checks or money orders should be in U.S. funds and payable to Alexander Bailey.
