Roxette World Tour 2011 schedule

Brainpool’s “Junk” premieres this Thursday

Written by Jud on August 17, 2004 to .

MALMÖ -   Brainpool’s latest project “Junk: a Rock Opera” will be out in the stores this Thursday, August 19th. The double CD – which will also be presented live with the Malmö Symphony Orchestra (MSO) during the Malmö Music Festival on the same day – contains a total of 28 songs in English.

  The band, consisting of Jens Jansson, David Birde and Christoffer Lundquist, celebrates its 10th anniversary with this release, which is the first since 1999 when they released “You Are Here.”

  The live version of Junk with the MSO will naturally differ considerably from Brainpools CD-version, which is being released by Playground Music. The group has worked on the recording off-an-on for about four years, in between other projects. Most recently, Lundquist – who has played with Roxette – co-produced Gyllene Tider’s “Finn 5 Fel” album.

  Some of the songs from “Junk” are available to listen to on the band’s official website.

I’m interested in Brainpool juust because of ROXETTE.

Hello - I really wany to buy Painkiller but it has been deleted from production - I’ve searched online at lots of different music stores and I went into several stores in Stockholm and Gothenburg recently, all with no luck - I’m really happy to pay for it but I can’t find it - would someone like to sell me an original copy or a CD-R? - if you can help please e-mail me at the address in my profile - thanks! - best wishes from Rich

Edit: thanks to Judith I have managed to order a second hand copy online - thanks again :-)

Rich, you have mail :)

ps: look at the first URL I gave you :D

Happy people who can think about Brainpool at the moment...

Of course I’m happy, it’s great to have new material from Brainpool. I’ve been a fan or liked their music since the very beginning. I still remember when I got Soda before they played in Barcelona with Roxette, how amazed and happy they were when they saw I have the CD and how much they liked to see my sister and me sing along their songs, jump, scream, shout during their performance :D No need to say we were the only ones who knew them so we got special attention from the guys, esp. Christoffer and David :P

Junk sounds good on their site.....

Waiting for the news. Ha ha ha. Though I was also surprised to see the article about Brainpool. But as they have connection with ROXETTE, why not.
