It’s certainly been a long wait. But good things come to those who wait, and the proof is right here:
The Loch Ness Mouse are just around the corner with a new album after “New Graffiti” which was released as far back as 2009!
The band is currently signed to Japanese label P-Vine (CD) and Norwegian label Voices of Wonder (LP/CD), and “The Loch Ness Mouse” will be out on January 22 in all Nordic countries and the EU through the latter. The Japanese release date is February 3.
Apart from the esteemed band themselves, the album will be brimful of guest artists, such as Frøkedal, Sondre Lerche and Magnus Hængsle. Strings are provided by Dark Horse Orchestra, and are written and conducted by Joshua Stamper (known for his work on Nikolaisen/Rundgren/Lindstrøm’s “Runddans“.)
We are definitely looking forward to hear from The Loch Ness Mouse again!
When Perfect Pop rummaged through their dusty attic a few weeks ago, lo and behold, a few long lost photos of girl band pioneers The Blind Bats surfaced. Feast your eyes on these ancient artifacts from Perfect Pop’s infancy!
The photos were taken by renowned photographers Morten Andersen (known to The Blind Bats as “Mortan”), Maya Glaser and Perfect Pop’s own shutterbug par excellence Steinar Buholm.
The various band members, both those who never recorded with the group, and the others, later went on to various bands, such as the New York-based Oscar and the Pidgin Sisters, SS Bondevik, Ljodahått and The Vacuum Dreamers.
As luck would have it you can still purchase The Blind Bats’ debut EP (second pressing) and CD as well as The Vacuum Dreamers (chosen by Skatterbrain as one of his favourites in 2013) right here at Perfect Pop!
