Flashback Friday – MOTM Edition

Not the usual kind of Flashback Friday, but we’re getting there. Here’s a flashback to the past September 12th’s of MOTM:


the Led Zeppelin reunion was announced

Led Zeppelin – Whole Lotta Love (MP3)

Kent was building up suspense for their album Tilbakka Till Samtiden… which turned out good, but maybe not as good as expected.

Danes Inspector Seven One offered their songs for us for the first time… and they still do! 🙂

On September 12th, I was travelling through Canada, but the few days before, I was writing about the various mixtapes I made for the trip. Re-read the tracklists and find some of the songs below.

Music For The Road
Strictly Canadian

Amanda Marshall: Let It Rain (Live) (MP3)
Rufus Wainwright: Across The Universe (MP3)



On September 11th, I was totally falling in love with Zookeeper’s Boy, one of the first songs that leaked from Mew‘s excellent milestone And The Glass Handed Kites. Back then, I was hoping for a great album, and a few weeks later, my hopes came true!

On September 13th, Sigur RósTakk was added to my collection, and looking back, I rate it my favourite album from the Icelanders. And it also containes my favourite SR song, Milano… ah, just writing about it makes me wanna listen to it right now.

Mixed News

Led Zeppelin reunite! Never been that big a fan, but this might be good news for some of you.

Someone wants us to leave Britney alone… try not to laugh through this video!!! 😀

Only five days to go until the release of Ingenting, the first new single from Sweden’s fabulous Kent. Excactly one month later, the album Tillbaka Till Samtiden will follow… can’t wait!!!! Want to hear the first few seconds of the single? Click here! Not too much there, but it sure makes a nice ringtone! 🙂

The generous lads from Denmark’s Inspector Seven One have good news for us: you can now download all four (brilliant) songs from their Dream Machine EP for free on their MySpace! Get them quickly, and while you’re there, say thanks to them, will you? Of course you can also buy the EP as a physical CD… just read their latest blog entry for infos!

More fear! If it wasn’t enough that Porcupine Tree released a brand-new album earlier this year, and also toured with it, the guys around Steven Wilson will release another EP with new music worth of 29 minutes this September! These recordings also come from the Fear Of A Blank Planet-sessions, and have now been mixed to a – as you expect it – high standard CD. And guess what? The 3’000 copies that were available via the band’s online-shop have already sold out! 2’000 are left to buy on the forthcoming tour, but if you’re not able to visit a concert (or come in just after buyer No. 2000), fear not… the EP will be released again in 2008! Lucky for me as I don’t expect to get one at the concert in November here…
You can download a teaser for the EP on the band’s MySpace, btw.!

When The Inspector Calls…

It’s another Visit-Denmark-day today. It still amazes me that a country so small brings out so many great artists (Switzerland’s only a bit smaller, but compared to the band-output of Denmark, it seems a bit like a wasteland…). Anyway, I got a visit from Inspector Seven One on MySpace recently, and when an inspector knocks, you let him in, don’t you? And some good songs really help to gain entry to my MySpace as well, and on that matter, Inspector Seven One never had to fear rejection!

Inspector Seven One was ignited in 2004 by Ulrik Andersen, who plays guitar and bass, and Rene Odgaard on drums and programming. They already had written a few songs, but had yet to find a vocalist. This took almost two years, but good things come to those who wait. When Dan Johannesson remixed and sang some of their tunes, it was clear for Ulrik and Rene that the search was over, and the perfect singer was found!

The sound of Inspector Seven One is quite interesting. Dan Johannesson‘s excellent voice guides the synthies through the “solid wall of fat rock music”, and it all adds up to a perfect blend of ElectRock. The best comparisons are probably their Danish mates from Carpark North or Spleen United. The Inspector‘s influences department on MySpace lists bands like Muse, Rammstein, Depeche Mode and Genesis amongst a few others, and although there are some hints of those bands to be found in the songs, it all sounds quite original nonetheless.

The band only played their debut concert back in March this year, and has just finished their first 4-track-EP called Dream Machine, to be released in a few weeks. They still are unsigned, but I hope for them that something will come up soon. Carpark North did it, Spleen United did it, so Inspector Seven One could do it, too… let’s keep our fingers crossed!

I can only give you 1-minute-snippets of each song as a download, but you can listen to the full tracks on the following pages:
