Yet another attempt to launch BWO in the UK....

Of all the music TV channels in this country, my favourite is The Box, one reason being there must be someone there who likes Swedish pop: over the past year they've shown the likes of "Lucky" by Lucky Twice / "Painted by Numbers" by The Sounds / "Chariots of Fire" by BWO. All of which flopped miserably in the British chart.

But here we go again with another attempt to launch BWO over here. Tonight I was watching The Box and they played the "Sunshine In The Rain" video, which in typical Alexander Bard-style is just a little bizarre. Oh, and Martin's cute in the video too. I like the song, maybe not as much as "Chariots of Fire" or for that matter "Temple of Love" but I wish they would have a hit here.

Yes, Shell Records is trying again. There are new UK remixes by Soul Seekerz.

I just don't see BWO ever making it in the UK. Same goes for Alphabeat. But now that they have moved to the UK, who knows?

Sadly I think you're right, but we can dream can't we!

:) FYI, the UK debut single of Alphabeat was recently promoted. New mixes by Linus Loves, Bimbo Jones, and Count Of Monte Cristal & Sinden (who?).

I would rather see a WEA label picking up Måns for a US/UK release. And perhaps even Amy Diamond.
