I always find it amazing how quickly people become used to something, and take it for granted. Like broadband!
When the internet was new, and dial up was the standard way of connecting, everyone was amazed and happy. Then, along came broadband, and people suddenly found they had no patience for anything that was less than instantaneous. I wonder, in 4 or 5 years time, how many people will look back and say: 'Broadband? How old fashioned and slow!'

Of course, the ultimate luxury will be something that was previewed on Tomorrow's World, many, many years ago. The holographic concert. A bit like a video, or dvd, you put your disc in the special machine and the concert takes place around you, as if you were in the middle of it. All the musicians are three dimensional and totally real in appearance. Now that would be something! Imagine TFK in 3D, performing for you in the middle of your living room, while you walk around amongst them. Brilliant! cheesy


Yeah, whatever rolleyes

Just sort your broadband out for crying out loud grin

TOMAS BODIN: is finally releasing the follow-up to 2005's I AM, entitled "You Are".
I am about to release my brand new CD ”YOU ARE”. This is the second part of the trilogy [I AM, YOU ARE, HE SHE IT IS]. I started to work with “YOU ARE” back in 2006. So I can easily say that it feels good to finalize this project! I AM was very much my own life story. But this time I’ll take a closer look upon contemporary issues in the outside world. The album contains 7 songs, and is clocked around 77 minutes. The songs are…


You Are
Poor Lucille
Food
Dad is coming home
Private skies
American Standards
Silicone Bimbo Run


You can listen to snippets and order the CD on his MySpace page.

In other news ....
I can also proudly present my new band "Eggs & Dogs". Members are: Michael Stolt (Lead Vocals/Electric Basses), Jocke JJ Marsh (Electric/acoustic 6&12 string guitars, lead guitars), Marcus Lilijequist (Drums/Percussion), Tomas Bodin (Keyboards, percussion, kazoo, backing vocals, fx voices, vocoder).

Interesting to see Michael Stolt in there, and on lead vocals too! I wondered what had happened to him. I thought maybe he had left the music business. Nice to see him back. Not a bad bass player either, though I suppose he will always be overshadowed by a certain Mr Jonas. rolleyes

Here's Michael's MySpace link http://www.myspace.com/michaelstolt Wait to you read his musical influences. I now see why he got out of the 'prog' end of the business. He appears to have a love for country/pop music.

Hasse and Roine are both big fans of Frank Zappa's work. I quite often hear his influence in Roine's guitar solos.

Funnily enough, I played this today. It's another great offering, and it's not a million miles away from Swedish Family at times. More superb instrumentals with an off kilter twist. smiley

I wonder where Bassman has got to lately? Haven't seen him on here for a while. Maybe he's so immersed in TFK that he's forgotten the time...

Come back mate, we miss you! cheesy
