how would you catagorize your music?

Pop. Rock. Electro. Soul. AOR. New Wave. Elements of these together.

whats your influences?who is your heroes?

whats your future plans for Grovesnor, touring around with a full band?

We've just put together the live band (previously I was playing on my own and as the venues were getting larger, they were getting harder to fill on my own). We've had four or five gigs so far and they're going really well. The sound is much better - less digital. We're obviously going to be playing a lot to promote the single.
It's possible I might be collaborating with Mylo too - meeting with him this afternoon in fact.

tell me a secret?

I once played a gig where I forgot to remove the vocal track from my backing CD so I sang one song over the top of vocals that were already there. And I had to mime to the vocoder part too.

New Kids On The Block RETURN!

(picture: NKOTB`s debut album. i actually own this LP!! its SICK)

People magazine reports:

"After months of speculation and rumor, the Kids are coming back. A well-placed source tells PEOPLE exclusively that New Kids On The Block are indeed getting back together.
The band's Web site,, which had been dormant, is now back up and running in anticipation of the official announcement, which the source says will be made in the next few weeks.
The site currently features a television graphic with a fuzzy, flickering photos of NKOTB in their heyday, and a link inviting fans to sign up for info.
The boy band, which made legions of tweens swoon in the early '90s, selling more than 50 million albums, became a worldwide phenomenon before calling it quits in 1994.
Eighteen years later, they're still "Hangin' Tough." The oldest "Kid," Jonathan Knight, now a real estate developer, will turn 40 later this year. Since the band's demise, former members Donnie Wahlberg, 38, and Joey McIntyre, 35, have seen acting success, while Danny Wood, 38, has worked as a music producer and Knight's brother, Jordan, 37, has continued to record."

Joshtradamus`s EBAY Yard Sale

"wanna buy my computa? its full of music goodies"

maybe this one is on that mac: a mix from last year. its pretty good.i was lucky enough to see them dj in Oslo this summer.they killed it. the weapon they used to kill us with was: they played cheesy 90`s trance the last 45minutes!!very fun if you grew up listening to it(well some of it) and because no one saw it coming!and everybody loves some trance dont they?

Flossstradamus - 3 peat mix


PASTOR: "really liked the ebay bulletin!:)

Fresh news!just got an email saying that Foo Fighters are coming to Bergen 11.june.
Tickets goes on sale 28.january 09:00! go get!
some other artist playing in Bergen this spring: Kool & the Gang, Van Morrison, Tunng, Rufus Wainwright & alot more to come including a BIG club party on 30.april!more news on that when the full program is released!


Quart Festival 2-5.July in Kristiansand, Norway.

Its a good start. I wouldn`t mind catching Asobi Seksu, John & Jehn, Johnossi, Real Ones, Unkle & Coblestone Jazz LIVE! but they have yet to release a BIG headliner(thou i prefer seeing smaller new bands). im not shure if im going anyway. Think i`ll choose Hove Festival and Øya Festival like last year.and lets not forget Størjevik Festival. i will write more about those festivals when they release a band or two that really gives me a hard-on.

In their own words:

"Feast your ears on this...

The Enemy (UK)
- Q Magazine's new band of the year, XFM Radio's best band of the year, NME frontpage regulars...The Enemy are young, loud, and with an ear for a great indie-pop song.

Future Of The Left (UK)
- Without question the greatest band in the UK right now. Angry, funny and extremely loud. If you decide to murder someone, this is what to play on your iPod when you're on the way to their house.

Asobi Seksu (JP)
- One of New York’s greatest bands, Asobi Seksu are a mesmerising live proposition, with delicate Japanese vocals tethered to colossal walls of enveloping reverb that would wear Mogwai out.

Johnossi (SE)
- Straight-up, no-messin' rock and roll duo from Sweden. Everything the write sounds like a hit. And probably could be.

Cradle Of Filth (UK)
- The most successful British metal band since Iron Maiden. Their live show is almost as controversial as their merchandise.

I’m from Barcelona (SE)
- If you don't dance to this with a huge grin on your face, you're probably dead.

- At the age of 18, James Lavelle founded the hugely influential Mo'Wax label, and from that base created Unkle. Ten years later, with a six-piece band in tow, they're still relevant, still pushing

Kool Keith / Aka Dr. Actagon (US)
- Founder member of the legendary Ultramagnetic MCs. There is no other rapper like him alive today. If you know hip-hop, you know Kool Keith.

Real Ones (NO)
- New band of the day in the Guardian newspaper last week (UK), Real Ones' richly melodic sound nods to psychedelic West-Coast pop, country and folk.

Totalt Jävla Mörker (SE)
- Swedish Hardcore. Two vocalists. Total. Fucking. Darkness. If you like Sugababes, do not attend this show.

Cobblestone Jazz (CAN)
- The Canadians use old computers and analogue instruments to create some of the finest, improvisational tech-house around.

Yolz In The Sky (JP)
- A thunderous noise assault that could be called full-throttle agit-punk, blending jagged guitar, a frenetic rhythm section and yelping vocals that you'll either love or hate, sometimes with furious attacks of hardcore punk, sometimes with slowed-down dance grooves and metallic guitars.

John & Jehn (UK/FR)
- John & Jehn are an awesome, French, visually arresting, explosive, dueling, boy-girl set up. Influenced by the likes of The Velvet Underground and Gang of Four, this is beautiful ascendant, lustful alt-pop.

Three Trapped Tigers (UK)
- Beautiful, mathematical, avant-jazz-rock. This four-piece, instrumental act sound like Battles nailed to Radiohead then thrown down a flight of stairs.

The Megaphonic Thrift (NO)
- Coming out of Bergen, TMT throw up a Sonic Youth-esque wall of guitars. Bring your earplugs."

UNTZ UNTZ BERGEN goes ENGLISH and turns it up a notch

switching too english and changing the name on this blog thing!hopefully i can get some new readers.i will also feature more MUSIC NEWS, concerts,festivals etc., not just posting HOT remixes as im used to,(im a sucker for remixes).i will not be writing in norwegian anymore.maybe a word or to if i cant translate it, but i`ll try to keep it as correct as possible. please dont hesitate to correct me if im wrong, seriously wrong.toodeloo.

Though this may look like a recreational hobby or a debilitation, it is simply how Bill maneuvers throughout the day."
