Howdy,
I'm Adam and while I'm not really "new" here, I'm kind of unactive, so...yeah.

First heard of The Cardigans around the era of "Lovefool" '97ish, that would have made me 11. In fact I think 'First Band on the Moon' was a B-day gift, good call Mom and Dad. Recieved 'Gran Turismo' for Christmas in '98. Then nothing. I didn't get on the internet ever back then so I didn't know they had anything else to offer. Summer of '02 was browsing Best Buy and they had the Emmerdale with Bonus CD, having no cash on me I hid the copy they had and returned the next day and bought it. August of '02 I joined the computer age and got online and discovered that not only were The Cardigans making a new album, but they had a whole other one I didn't own, 'LIFE' (So thats what those bonus tracks of Emmerdale came from, I'm an idiot.). As I was still new to the internet, I didn't buy anything off of it and waited for 'Long Gone Before Daylight' to be released in the US, and I searched high and low for 'LIFE'. After getting 'LGBD' in '04, i finally got 'LIFE' in the winter of '05, then got my 'Super Extra Gravity' spring '06 (I finally started buying off the internet), then snatched a copy of 'The Other Side Of The Moon' off ebay in Nov '06.

That was obscenely long. I am kind of embarrassed. And I'm over it.

I love theatre, and I am currently studying acting in NYC.

Hi I'm nigar from Turkey. 24 years old, mastering on social psychology, and working for ministry of health in a very small city.
I'm a cardifan since 1997. discovered with Romeo & Juliet Soundtrack. then bought FBOTM they were both casette versions. I don't really remember how many times i listened over and over that album... I losted it somehow afterwards....
My brother was became a so-called cardifan at Gran Turismo era. He mentioned band as "best band from sweden after ABBA" He turned back after LGBD but that wasn't about band. He only listens classic music now.

at 2002 i found Life album and began to obsess to cardigans once again, with feeling. since then cardigans never lost it's special place in my heart.
I saw them live 2 times, first in Rock'n coke festival 2003, second in İstanbul last year. waited for hours to be in the front, made me feel really excited....
My other musical obsession is Placebo. I'm an admin of turkish placebo fansite. But in the foreign music section of our forum i gave a special place to the cardies :)

Hey over there, no need to say where I'm from. As most of the others above, I've found out and fell in love for Cardigans when I first saw Lovefool. Since then I've been following their work and each solo works as well. Hope they might come back for another concert around here. It was really great! ;)

Hi! This is HappyCamper. I'm from the Emerald Isle and I'm here because , like everyone else, my love of the greatest band ever The Cardigans.
I've been a fan of theirs for two years now even though it's technically ten. You see between the years 1997-2005, I always had the choruses of Lovefool and Erase/Rewind but I never knew who played them. It got quite annoying until that April day in 2005. While searching throught music channels for something to watch I stumbled upon the begining of Lovefool. Only at the chorus was when I realised "It's THAT song". The song which, for EIGHT years, would pop into my head at random times. I wanted to find out more about this band and then came the day I stumbled across Erase/ Rewind. My reaction "It's THAT song....It's by the SAME band....How come it took eight years for me to find out who played these songs.I will never know. And I've been a fan ever since. Well that's my story of how I discovered this magnificant band.
I first got GT, then Life, then FBOTM, then SEG, then LGBD and finally Emmerdale. I also managed to get Righteous Boy's and A Camp's albums off Amazon. Every Album wonderful in it's own way.
And oh yes....greetings to all who enter here!

I'm not new, I'm just back from like a hiatus I guess. What happened was I knocked a glass of lemonade over my labtop last year, which killed it. So, I got a new labtop a few months later, and I think music just went by the wayside and I didn't visit the board often. Anyway, I've sort of rediscovered the Cardigans again as well as music in general, so yep I'm back.

Hi there!
I'm Emese, i'm 24 and live Hungary. I've been studying law for 5 years and now i'm preparing for my very-last exam... I can make it only with Cardigans in my ears:)

To tell the truth, i'm not a 'real' Cardigans fan yet, but i think i'm slowly becoming one:)
The first song i heard from them was Lovefool. I loved that Romeo&Juliet movie, loved it's soundtrack (and loved Leo DiCaprio :P ). But years passed and i forgot all about it (fortunately including my love for Leo;) ). I knew videos like Erase and Rewind or Losing my favourite game or Burning down the house with Tom Jones but that's all.

Some months ago i had a DREAM :) In that dream i heared Lovefool. The next day i had an irresistable desire to listen to it again, so i searched for the old-old R&Juliet soundtrack among my cds.. Many things changed since i was 15 but one surely didn't: that music is still great!

Then i thought i might as well listen to some other Cardigans songs, why not. So i started to listen to the cds one after another. Although (in my opinion:) Lovefool has nothing to do with the rest of Cardigans music, i loved the rest as well. I'm not a musician, i never studied music, but i have heared many sorts of it. The music of Cardigans is interesting, exciting, i can tell one song from the other and i can definitely tell Cardigans' songs from other bands' songs.

Sooo for some weeks now i only listen to your songs, and although on the first day i thought i would go mad from the voice of Nina, i didn't turn it off and i got comlpletely addicted:)

When i visited this site i was astonished to see that besides i can ask things from you, you have questions to ask form me:) The very best thing here is that i can use letters like "ö" and "ü" because they exist in Swedish :D

Other bands i love: RHCP, Placebo, Coldplay, Pink Floyd (mostly The Wall:), Shakira..
Hungarian bands: Jamie Winchester&Hrutka Robert, Ákos, Ghymes
and some freak jazz things like European Mantra or Kaltenecker Trio (also from Hungary;)

Oh, and i almost forgot: my absolute favourite Cardigans song is No sleep, for the lines: "the comfort of fireflies / Long gone before daylight".

i love you all:)

Hiya! This is Neel from Russia. XD I am a 19 y.o. university student.

I first heard The Cardigans when I was a schoolboy (13 or 14). There was "You're The Storm" on MTV. I remember being spellbound by Nina's sad voice as well. When I bought 'LGBD', it was in my CD player for many weeks straight. I was rather surprised when I finally found the band's first studio albums. "First Band On the Moon" is my favourite Cardigans album even up to now. I just love those funky tunes. :D

If you feel like getting to know me better, feel free to add me on AIM - BolicSound.

See you. :)

Hi, i'm from Hawaii, USA.

I guess you could say i'm a new fan, even though I heard and liked "Lovefool" way back in the ninties when the Cardies were everywhere. But after that i became completely oblivious to their existence until almost two years ago when I say them on a "similar artists" list for Eisley, another band I like.

It's too bad that the Cardigans are widely considered a one-hit-wonder here, because I feel like I've missed out all those years. It's okay though, because I still have some catching up to do. I just hope that this current break that the band is taking doesn't take too unbearably long.
