XXX, I believe it was "I'm not an addict" :)

The other big song they had was "Something's wrong", I believe.

Bands from my home country that others might know are:

Seether (formerly Saron Gas)

Just Jinger

Springbok Nude Girls

Johnny Clegg and Savuka

Soweto String Quartet

Ok, we have hardly anything. :: Meh.

does this have to be just bands or can it be solo artists as well? in ireland we've got a great music scene going on. here are some that spring to mind:

Damien Rice

Mic Christopher (sadly he passed away in November 2001 at just 31 years of age)

Mark Geary

The Frames



Nina Hynes

David Kitt

Maria Doyle Kennedy

Colm Quearney (aka Q)

Snow Patrol

and some cork acts:

The Sultans of Ping fc (since split)


John Spillane

Niall Connolly

Ian Whitty (adopted by cork from his native kerry)

The Fallen

Ten Past Seven

The Berries


and (of course!) my band MiR, although we're taking a break right now!

Oh, if they don't have to be global, then the best bands we have that I like :P are:

Springbok Nude Girls (since broken up but Arno Cartsens has released a solo album)

Seether (Saron Gas)

16 Stitch


The Finkelsteins (from my home town, I was actually at school with these guys although they matriculated 2 years after me)

Bongo Muffin

Lucky Dube

Roger Goode (Awesome DJ)



Battery 9

Rabbit (They had a huge hit with "Charlie" in the 70's or 80's)

Tree 63

Kombat Fudge (also guys at high school with me)

And Dave Matthews went to high school in Johannesburg, so that technically makes him half a Saffa ::

Those are famous internationally. Then we have The Norwegians:

1. Span (hard rock)

2. Morten Abel (from my home town, stavanger, the norwegian pop king, just brilliant)

3. Annie (brilliant song: "heartbeat". She's getting quite famous internationally now as well)

4. Ralph Myers and the Jack Herren band (electro pop of the highest calibre... get "think twice"

5. Madrugada (melancholic rock)

6. Sondre Lerche (of course)

7. Bertine Zetlitz (pop)

8. Briskeby (Pop Rock)

Then we have the swedes .. which have the upper hand over us norskies I must admit:

1. The hives (obviously)

2. Kent (one of my favourite bands)

3. The Cardigans

4. Soundtrack of Our Lives

5. Melody Club (brilliant 80s band.. so worth listening to)

6. Infinite Mass

How 'bout Psychic T.V ? It's all just a big Bergmann film in the end ... :puppyeyes:

I love Ingmar Bergman movies! :: Did you notice how Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey made a reference to that film when they played the game with Death? Of course, it was kinda hard to figure out the first ten times since I was drunk and stoned every time I saw it :) :googly:
