Quote from: Guybrush on Oct 28, 2023, 10:36 AMI haven't quite taken to any of Ulver's stuff myself, but they're certainly interesting for taking their sound to so many different places. I'm mostly familiar with their early stuff and their black metal back then is so horribly produced (as was the style) and their folky stuff is kinda cool, but hasn't quite grabbed me.I've yet to dig into their more recent art poppy stuff.

Quote from: Lisnaholic on Nov 05, 2023, 03:31 PM - although in fact, of course, you turn out to be pretty knowledgeable, Guybrush.One Norwegian band I like are Kaisers Orchestra *, who have a kind of theatrical rock sound and (what I expect from Norway), lyrics I can't understand:-

Quote from: Guybrush on Nov 05, 2023, 10:57 PMNot particularly knowledgeable for a music interested Norwegian, I think 😄Kaiser's Orchestra is a good example. They are inescapable in Norway, yet I know precious little about them except the town they came from and I half-heartedly started listening to their debut once.Sad thing is I'm pretty sure they're actually great and well worth the plunge. As it is, I only know their hits and my favorite out of those is this (as I'm a sucker for ballads):I posted a Turboneger song in the Workout thread and of course they deserve a bigger mention here, but while we wait for that to happen..Knut Schreiner, Turboneger's guitarist, had Kåre & The Cavemen as one of his side projects and for a while, they made deliciously funky, instrumental 70s west coast music. My favorite is their album Long Day's Flight Till Tomorrow which has this awesome banger on it:How funky is that?The band name was so unsellable to foreigners, so when they tried marketing themselves abroad, they changed name to Euroboys.. as an attempt to tail Turboneger's success by using Knut's Turboneger stage name (Euroboy). I don't know if the Cavemen, now boys, made anything as great as this again, but then.. I should probably check.
