OUTRAGEOUS

MAIDEN VOYAGE

Take minimal 80’s synth pop music, upgrade its processor to an upbeat EBM assault, add to it a bitchy disco punk female singer… Alice In Videoland deserve applauds and an immediate success. My tip!” (TSF:9) TSF. Side-line magazine

Our imaginary Alice fell into the rabbit hole on a chilly day in May 2002. Toril Lindqvist had been a guitar player in various rock bands for years, but was beginning to feel tormented by musical inspiration that didnt quite fit into any Rock & Roll context. She wanted to be a singer. In something more “electronic” than a rock band. Finally one day she took a long shot and phoned Carl Lundgren (formerly of a 90s bodypop outlet), whom she had met at a party some five years earlier.

Sceptical in the extreme, Carl agreed to hook up for a brain storming session. The two met a couple of times and became inspired by the fact that they really had nothing in common musically ! This would actually become the fuel of their creative process. Early on, the duo would make attempts at “EBM meets Punk Rock meets Commodore 64″, inspired by an imaginary and unholy alliance of DAF, prodigy and Nina Haagen.

A couple of simple demos were released during the late summer of 2002, and surprisingly generated lots of acclaim! With fuelled enthusiasm, the duo christened their project “Alice in Videoland” from a 1984 Commodore 64 computer game. Anders Alexander (drums) were recruited in February 2003. Johan Dahlbom (bass) joined in November the same year. Dominique took over the synteziser by the time of the release of the second album. At this point, Alice in Videoland had begun receiving massive praise for their energetic and charismatic live show.
