Remember when Myspace was a thing?

Shit, this is from 2009? No wonder Wig Wam split. These guys had been drifting apart for a while.

I like that tune, and I can picture Jorn Lande all over it.

I should admit, even back when Myspace was relevant, I never knew how to use the site.

I can't get anything to play on myspace, but I'm not liking the vibe surrounding this one. Will wait for the music, though.

Hes got such an amazing vocal.....why does he keep recording such bollocks?

 

My thoughts exactly.

 

 

Backed. The Allen/Lande project is the only source of good music he's participated in since probably his second solo album.

The only albums i truly like with Jorn are -

 

Millenium debut (his best imo)

Worldchanger (easily his best solo album....by a country mile)

The Battle (debut Allen/Lande is still light years ahead of the other 3)

 

 

 

Oh, and he is f embarrassment live........pointing at everyone in the crowd like Alvin Stardust (RIP).

Wow, you guys are being a bit harsh on poor old Jorn. Personally I only really liked Millennium - Hourglass and most of the first Masterplan.... oh and he stole the show on koztev's nostradameus. He has an amazing voice!

 

Still you can't fault the guy. He puts a lot of material out in a variety of genres. Quality of songs is just not there imo

I loved Millennium, all the Allen/Lande discs and his second solo album. Sadly that's about it. I admit he has a great voice, but there's not much point putting out a million discs if most suck. Like they say in the movies; quality over quantity.

Jorn is simply the one of the greatest. The "Out of every nation" album is one om my favourite records.

 

To me it's a mistake to not understand and appreciate the greatness of Jorn! This man has delivered tons of great music and vocal performances ;)

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.

    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
