LEVEL UP: LOOSE LIMBS PROMOTES 'HERO NO MORE'

We are pleased to see our hometown has spawned more extreme music, finally after years of singer/songwriters and 90's grungerock. The deathcore act Hero No More is four young dudes with an appetite for annihalation and their sonic attack is more devastating than a landmine. We have officially taken them into the Loose Limbs collective and will be working to promote them in 2012. Check out this live video (introduced by a little girl who probably have no idea what she is unleashing upon the audience), only their second performance:

LOOSE LIMBS NOW ON VIDEOTAPE!

Last week we introduced the new LL Productions on Vimeo - to not exactly a standing ovation, but it's a project in development. As one of us (old E) is currently studying to become a filmmaker it's only natural to expand our business into the musicvideo and film world, andhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif first out is the rappin' snappin' boys in OppRettVettNok. Check out the video and leave feedback if you're not an double arm amputee.

UPDATE

We've refreshed the site a bit just to make it look like we're still alive. Even though Loose Limbs as a record label is not as active as it used to be, we are still producing stuff, and we still want to promote other fellow northern-norwegians' work. So this blog will be updated a little more often from now on, with various stuff from the north we enjoy. - GBRLSN

SUMMER IS TOO SHORT!

We've been lazy lately, as one should be in the summer, but we're getting back on track. Tommy Vandal has done some promo work in USA, Eirik Vandal are still somewhere in Europe and Eirik Abri has been holding the ropes back home.

There are solid plans to release a 7" split vinyl with LLR-artist The Revolt and the swedish The Pookie Syndrome.
Both bands are releasing albums in near future and have been talking about touring together through (at least) Norway, Sweden and Finland in 2009.

This years Night Of The Living Bands are currently "on hold" and the future of this one-day festival is uncertain as we would like to expand. The NOTLD moniker would clearly not be the right name for a 3-day festival so we're going to have meetings with beer.

We're also involved in a film project, but more on this later.

LOOSE LIMBS LIVE AT MIDNIGHT

Wednesday the 6. of February we're kicking off a new "concept" at the only credible rockjoint in our hometown Harstad; DET SORTE FÅR. It's called LOOSE LIMBS LIVE AT MIDNIGHT and the title speaks for itself.
We're going to get all the good bands touring Norway to stop by and play for us, charging as little as possible in the door and it's all going to start at midnight. And by midnight we mean, if you're in the door 5 past, you missed the first song.

First musical extravaganza we have to offer is the amazing electro/hardcore act



Like Rats From A Sinking Ship






and the pure electronika experience

TOMMY VANDAL AWARDED



Our dear Tommy Vandal was awarded last Friday with the "Masters by Mario", a 3000 $ price for his work in the local scene. He's been booking bands from all over the world to our relatively small town, he's started the local union "Harstad City Rockers" (which now counts almost 200 members), and he has been a front figure for our towns music scene in the media and to the politicians. He's given up most of his free time to wake the local scene from deep sleep and now he's got a diploma to hang on his wall and a pocket full of cash.

Loose Limbs Records are currently getting involved in another ninja-related release.

THE REVOLT MINI ALBUM OUT NOW




The Revolt have been doing their thing since 2001, playing hundreds of concerts all over Norway, Sweden and Finland. After a homemade demo cd release in 2003 entitled "All Wrongs Rehearsed" and a DIY single in 2005, the time has finally come for a "major" release.


It's a seven track case study of aggression blended with intricate melody and noise, from the first right-in-your-face attitude of "We Are Drowning" to the progpop-esque "Hollow" at the end.


Find the album at your local independent recordpusher or order it directly from us by e-mail; looselimbsrecords@gmail.com
