A few links for you

- Albatrosh were voted Young Jazz Musicians of the Year in Norway last year, and they got the SENA Award Best Group now (European champions, more like it)! Their new band with Lene Grenager and Hild Sofie Tafjord will play Bergen this month. If I´m not there, I´m not feeling too good.
- Author Wesley Stace, also known as musician John Wesley Harding, is pushing Robert Wyatt´s "Rock Bottom" in NYT.
- The great Sissy Wish album "Beauties never die" (2007) is being released in the US now, and she will do a tour of US, Japan and China. She is also singing on Sondre Lerche´s new album, and if you ask me, she could do vocals for Slapp Happy too.
- Since lots of other bloggers and twitterers (or is it twitters?) have done it already, I´m in too: PiL will reform.
- AllAboutJazz is covering several Norwegian festivals. Now they are visiting PUNKT (Kristiansand).
