So you don't recognise this thread anymore. Hmm, looks like I'm going to have to send the boys round to open your eyes a bit. (Ready Hasse? Roine? Jonas? Go get him!)

Carl, it's not like TFK's but the diversity of their musicianship really shines with this album.
It's a very slow tempo throughout.
Some more words above your last post.

Glad to like the earth band stuff. Let me know when you're ready to explore some more. smiley


Thanks for the info, Colin. Think I may have to invest in 'Swedish Family' in the near future.

As for MMEB, yes, I am enjoying it, and it gets better with each listen. The sign of good music, imo.
I will give 'Watch' a listen over the next couple of days and see what I think of that.

Cheers
Carl

Watch has Martha's Madman which is consistantly the best live song on the setlist.
You need to catch the band live. In my opinion, they are amoung a rare breed of musicians who are best sampled live.

Anyway, Nov will be angry if we lose the plot here.

Hi Steph,

Which Bodin albums do you have? I have 'Sonic Boulevard' which I think is excellent.
And I am getting 'An Ordinary Night in My Ordinary Life' soon.
So what's your opinion on the ones you have then? smiley

Listening to Retropolis at the moment.

This is a fabulous album throughout; much more consistant than Paradox Hotel in my opinion.

Is there a poll on TFK's favourite album? I don't recall seeing one. cheesy

Thanks for the info, Steph. Something tells me I will end up getting the lot though.
Oh, the unending strain on my wallet! grin

Not on this site, not that I can remember. I have seen polls in other places though. Why not start one Colin?
It should be an interesting bit of fun.
For the record, my prediction is that 'Space Revolver' would win it, with probaby 'Stardust We Are' second. The bottom two would be 'Adam & Eve' and 'The Rainmaker'. That's the general tendency I've found when I've read people's comments on the albums over the years. Of course, all the albums have their fans though, so I would like to think they would all get a few votes.
Most people know my choices - top: Flower Power, bottom: Space Revolver. But I love them all.
But we're all different, and it's the sign of a great band when their fans have a difficult time choosing between the various albums. It shows remarkable consistency imo. cheesy

My wish-list is growing to:

New Kaipa
Swedish Family
Moon Safari
New TFK compilation
More Tomas solo albums
New Karmakanic

Ooops!!! Typing that, I've just remembered I'm meant to be making you a CD of the Rainmaker extra tracks and a Karmakanic album Carl. Sorry about that. Were there any other tracks that you wanted from that list a few pages ago? Can you have a look and let me know which tracks you want?

Cheers

Nov

Can't find the page to be honest. But I don't think there was any more. Just the extra Rainmaker tracks.
Cheers Nov. cheesy

What news are ya keepin' from us Nov? I've read for a year now that Karmakanic have a new album "in the works," but have yet to see/hear a release date.

From Jonas' mouth - Karmakanic is in the studio right now working on their third studio album. The working title of the disc is "Who´s the boss in the factory" The material sounds a bit Genesis/Jackson Brown/Pat Metheny/Joni Mitchell/Yes/Pink Floydish.

Are you hearing anything other than that tidbit Nov?

Hasse Bruniusson has a band called The Flying Food Circus. Their sound is kind of a King Crimson/Zappa blend of fine progressive tinkering and tomfoolery.

Here's their site http://www.burlesco.com/index.html

Watch the video by clicking on the PLAY TRAILER icon. (I believe I see Roine in the video, or are my eyes fooling me?)

Listen to audio snippets by clicking on the LISTEN icon.

Here's a review of their 2002 release "EAT THIS" http://www.progressiveworld.net/bruniussonh.html

I've read about Bruniusson's band before. He always seemed to me to be a little, er, eccentric, shall we say? I think he's hilarious at times on the 'Meet The Flower Kings' dvd.
I bet he keeps the rest of the band entertained most of the time. He's a fine percussionist though, and has played drums on the odd FK track too.
