Here´s an article from todays Adresseavisen (Trondheim paper):

15. august 2005:

Finally - the long-awaited Casino Steel album, There´s a Tear In My Beer, is ready for the masses!
It´s already announced that it´s a country record, and the title says it all really.
I guess it´s in honor of the late, great Hank Williams.
The release-party takes place at Kampen Bistro in Oslo, on september 1.
Hopefully we´ll see Casino on the road all around the country pretty soon.

Just hold on to your hats and check back here when you can!

Casino will also be part of the Norwegian Tribute to the Ramones. A record is due for release this fall,
and a show is booked for 25. october, at Rockefeller, Oslo.

Just a little info:
I was assistant manager for the Norwegian team playing England in Oslo today! The English team was Iron Maiden and West Ham players flown over for the occasion.The Norwegian team was Thorstvedt, Eggen, Rekdal, Bjornebye a.o., with "Diesel"Dahl (TNT)-HP Baarlie (Backstreet Girls)-Hank Von Helvete (Turbonegro) and Sigurd Vongraven (Satyricon).
We thrashed England 8-1, and Maiden said it was the most humiliating experience they've ever had.
They've invited us for dinner after their concert in Oslo tonight!
You can see the two teams here:

Just thought I'd let you know!
(this was posted on the Backstage Passers forum)

There are rumours about a tribute to The Boys and Hollywood Brats, which is recorded.
Hopefully it will see the light of day later this year - perhaps as soon as august/september.
Keep your fingers crossed!

an august release. More news to come when I have them!
