Club Contact

The new MP3 blog from London's club Contact. The idea is to allow people to hear new music they wouldn't have otherwise found but, if anyone has any copyright issues with a particular song, i'll take the link down. Songs are only available for a limited amount of time.

The good Lord giveth and the good Lord taketh away. The mighty Alcazar, one of the decade's finest pop groups, is no more. They announced their split just before Christmas*. However, as one Alexander Bard project hits the rocks, another springs back into action. Bodies Without Organs are applying the finishing touches to a new album and will be taking part in the competition to find the Swedish entry for Eurovision.

Bard is almost certainly the greatest pop talent to have emerged from the country since ABBA. Although active previously, his rise to fame came when he formed the legendary Army Of Lovers. Alongside Nigerian-Lapp La Camilla, French-Algerian Jean Pierre Barda, Polish heiress / stripper Dominka Peczynski and and French Countess Michaela Dornonville de la Cour they , according to the cover of their brilliant video collection Hurrah Hurrah Apocalypse, "sold millions of records, shocked Popes and parents, and toured every continent on the planet in proud defiance of their self-proclaimed lack of singing voices and instrumental capabilities". In his spare time, Bard lectures at the Stockholm School of Economics and Political Science on internet technology and post-Capitalist philosophy. Barda on the other hand is Master Hair Stylist for Elizabeth Arden. How could their combined efforts be anything less than amazing?

One of their most controversial hits was the spectacular Israelism which somehow managed to get banned in Germany despite the fact that at least half the group were Jewish. I present it as a suitable tribute to the ailing Mr Sharon.
