Jeg tok en liten titt i "spesielle mail"-mappa mi og fant noen kule emailer jeg har fått fra band en gang i tiden. Det er alltid gøy å få svar fra band.

Først ute er Beautypill:

it's exciting to hear that people in norway are listening to the album. we would love to tour europe but we
aren't sure yet when we will be able to or what countries we'll be playing. thanks for writing us!

>Jeg hørte deg på radioen 20 mai, og jeg synes Jet Johnson er dritbra. Jeg liker stemmen din skikkelig bra! Når kommer neste plate/singel? Mine favorittband er Smashing Pumpkins, Opeth, Deftones, Beck og Sonic Youth.. liker du noen av dem?
>vennelig hilsen bårdis
>ps. bildet er tatt i fjor da jeg var 16.

hei Bårdis,
tusen takk for det - fint bilde..........

Jeg er stor fan av sonic youth og Beck, syns Smashing Pumpkins er bra men har ikke noe særlig forhold til Deftones eller Opeth--
neste single kommer 21 juni - Death Song heter den, skikkelig munter sak om forskjellige måter å dø på...
ha fin sommer!

Fra Billy Mahonie:

Cheers Bård,
thanks for your email, not sure how easily one can find BM records in Norway.
I actually live in Oslo and have seen albums in Tiger and Big Dipper, but possibly not as easy to fine outside of the capital.
anyway, Bm are unfortunately going through a quite patch right now as i have just had a baby and the rest of the band live in london! we have a plan to record new album in the summer though,
well very best and thanks for writing

Dear Bård,

Thanks for the nice note from Norway. I appreciate you taking the time to write. I've never been to Norway, but I have ancestors from that nape of Europe.

We're hoping to tour Europe next summer, maybe we'll stop by Norway. What city do you live in??

We're recording a new record now and have some tracks up on

Thanks again,

hi baard, thanks for writing. i would love to come to norway at some
point, but unfortunately, for financial reasons, this isn't yet
possible. i hope this will change soon.

Og så til Film School:

I just wanted to say that I really like your music. I am a Norwegian and you guys are not so well known here (I imagine maybe about 50 people around the country have heard of you - which is very sad), but I 'discovered' you when searching through Mark Lanegan's music label, Beggars. If I had the power to get certain bands to play in Norway, Film School should have been one of them - for sure!

The (maybe uninteresting) picture is me and a friend dancing. I usually dont like to dance, but if the music is good, and I have had anough beer, and there is pretty girls, I'm there!

Best greetings


hey bard, thanks so much! do you mind if we post this letter on our blog as a "fan" letter? we love it and would like to share it.

we need to get out to norway soon!

Og The Warlocks:

Hey The Warlocks band,

I really love your music, and I'm wishing intense that you would come to Norway by 2008. I will keep this fan letter short, because I honestly dont have anything interesting things to say.

I wish you guys a merry christmas and a happy new year,


ps, where can I read your lyrics?

Well thanks for this Mr Baardis, we been to norway before but not in a few years. You just never know take care .. The Warlocks
