New years eve, 2003:
Wheeewh!!!! What a show the
Valentourettes put on
last monday! The place was packed and the crowd went absolutely nuts!
Hope to see these guys again, ´cause this was better, as I recall it,
than the last time, and who knows where this will end. Okey, time to
wish you all a fanfuckingtastic celebration of the new year. Chxeers!

Christmas Eve, 2003:
Oy Santa! Here´s a nice little present for you
to enjoy on this glorious day:
All In Black - Music Magazine
They got two video-clips of the Trashcan Darlings, from their X-mas bash at Last Train, "I just wanna die (on a chemical high)" and "So whore". Wonderous stuff!
And yesterday, the Trashcan Darlings "You lucky bastard" 7" single, arrived in my street. This is a bootleg of "Criminal porn" and "Psychotic barbie" (early live version), made by a mysterious man. The songs are taken from the very rare CD-promo by the same name. You won´t find that one, so better hurry up and get this 7" while it´s still available. I got five numbered copies on dark blue or see-through white vinyl, 60,-NOK (8 euros/9 $).
And I wanna wish you all a Merry Christmas, and hopefully, the Yobs are blessing your X-mas too:

Look above for links.
Friday 12. december, 2003:
More reviews are up, including the greatest
Xmas album of all time!
Go shake a leg!
Tuesday 9. december, 2003:
Okey, Bonk was not a good band!! My mistake.
Hey Andreas, whatever happened to the melodies...?
Anyway, I´ll most likely get down to Blæst again, tomorrow. Åzzy, the guitarist of Null$katte$nylterne will play some good ´ole rock´n roll for you (together with some other dude). Free entrance!
I wanna show you these amazing stories from New
York City, when the sun was shining
and all the boys were alive! So hop on, check out my good friend, Deborah Olin´s stories: Debbie Cb's.
Hope you´re doing great, Deborah!
Thursday 4. december, 2003:
Tonight, Oslo-rock´n rollers, Bonk, plays at Blæst, here in Trondheim. I´m really looking forward to seeing the guys, as it´s been some years since I last experienced them live. I´ve never seen Bonk before, but the members have payed their duties in the dark Oslo-scene with legendary bands like Astroburger, Kung Fu Girls and Anal Babes (R.I.P.). They´ve just released a single, and an album will follow early next year. I´ve only got a 7" single from probably three- four years ago, which I really like! So come and have a beer or four, CC is 80,- NOK.
Lots of new reviews are up. Well, for me it is a lot... and more will come pretty soon. Among others, the brand new Jayne County record. Chxeers!
Tuesday 2. december, 2003:
A tribute to the UK Subs has just been
released, featuring our own heartbreakers,
Go here for more info on other bands and how to order: www.uksubs.com.
On the not so bright side of the world, where I was yesterday when I was here. To tell somebody something that I really don´t want to, it breaks my heart. You´ll always be in my heart, no matter what. Have a safe trip, I forgot to tell you that.
"Nobody likes us, everybody hates us, ´cause we eat worms all day..."
Monday 1. december, 2003:
Ah, what a wonderful world! Maybe it feels like
it right now, ´cause it´s closing in on christmas, and The Yobs have
almost completely taken control over my stereo. I like this time of
year, hopefully it´ll be a white christmas this year too. More romantic
And, most of all, I got this wonderful feeling because of the excellent performance that Jacobites put on last thursday. It´s not very often I´m so warm inside, so thanx a lot to all the people that turned up, though I hoped more would come and see some history. But, this is Trondheim, who could ask for more?!
And a big hand to the Credo Bar who showed guts, I´ll always remember this night.
Wednesday 26. november, 2003:
Aaah yeah! So the day is finally here, for
those of you who are going to Elm Street Rock Cafe in Oslo tonight.
Latest is that Nikki Sudden & Dave Kusworth are safe and secure in Oslo, ready for tonights show, and tomorrows show at the Credo Bar here in Trondheim. And bring cash! The guys have a lot of records with them, the Trashcan Darlings-boys are now broke.
For the norwegian speaking, here´s a nice piece: Adressa.no
Stay bruised, C-YA !
Wednesday 12. november, 2003:
Oh, sorry, more ads in norwegian. I ought to
give some of you some language-lessons.
But who cares, I won´t be at the party mentioned down under anyway. Friday, I will go and see the promising, swedish punkrockers of Blisterhead, at Uffa. They sound very good, like some of the best moments of Rancid. Oyh-oyh!
Sunday 9. november, 2003:
as Jacobites (acoustic), will kick off their 2003 Teenage Christmas tour
in Norway. On wednesday 26. november they are at the Elm Street Rock Cafe in Oslo, and on thursday 27. they´re here in Trondheim, at the Credo Bar. Show up brothers and sisters, this will truly be one of this years ultimate highlights, don´t miss it! More info will follow.

Monday 3. november, 2003:
Hey! This mail was received at the rockalco... HQ last week. It´s only in norwegian, I don´t have the time to translate it, but it´s about one of the biggest robberies of a Oslo studio. So if anybody knows anything, get in touch with us, or the guys below:
Hei! Et av de større øvingsrombrekkene i Norge
noensinne fant i natt sted i Oslo. Foreløpige oversikter tyder på at det
ble stjålet utstyr for en halv million kroner, i tillegg til verdien av
de samples, programmeringer og opptak som forsvant.
Send denne mailen videre til junkier, helere, teknikere og musikere du kjener, det er de som mest sannsynlig kan bidra til å hjelpe dem som ble rammet av katastrofen.
Under finner du en liste over noe av utstyret som er savnet.
På forhånd takk.
mvh Jan Roger
