Hey I'm Robert and I'm 15 and from Ireland. All things interesting stop there. Well... I'm vegetarian! That usually interests peope. Hmm.. I heard The Cardigans, like, 5 years ago probably. My earliest memory of 'em is that episode of "Sabrina the teenage witch" when they're running around the house and FAVOURITE GAME is playing.

Lord help me if no replies >.<

I'm Chris from England and I've loved The Cardigans since Life came out over here in 1996. FBOTM got me through a fairly horrible break-up and since then the band has formed the background to my life. I play the guitar and try very hard to ape Peter's style in every band I join, but it rarely sounds the same. Funnily, I also find Magnus's bass style coming out in my guitar lines. I am obviously a very confused bunny indeed....

But anyway, I'm now 33 (and counting), living in Sussex and new to this website. I left the music industry after ten years and I'm glad, 'cos it was horrible and something that sustained me while I did my PhD. Nevertheless, I still love music itself and I'm ready, willing and able to discuss anything with anyone. In fact, it doesn't have to be just music. I'm an approachable chap!

Sorry it took me so long to get here, I was delayed by a repeating milestone motif which blinded me completely for many, many years.

Hi everyone! I'm Saff from the Philippines. I'm a lady at 27, and obviously I just signed up on this wonderful site, but I have been lurking in here for quite some time now. I am a creative new media designer, and i design stuff for print and web. I have to say that this fan site sure is the best example of a website that's simple but beautiful! :)

I've been a fan of The Cardigans way back when I was in college. I first got a hold of their album 'Life' when a drummer classmate of mine introduced me to your music. From then on, I can't stop but love you guysand the songs you play! It's just a pity that not all of your albums are distributed in my country, not even nina's solo 'a camp' :( good thing my cousins in nyc are grabbing each cardigan album i've missed.

lastly, i think bengt is the most handsome drummer in the history of music! I've researched since the birth of rock bands and no band had a good looking drummer other than Bengt of The Cardigans!!! :) Bengt, you rock!!!

hi all,

My name is Ben, i live in melbourne, australia and am 28 years old. I am completely smitten with Nina.... simple as that!! Nothing more nothing less, but hey who isn't right??

Anyway, was just surfing the net and thought i would have a play around. Have a look on here and see what it is all about. If the Cardigans ever come to Australia for live gigs or a holiday, be sure to pass on my email address. I would be a more than capable tour guide!!

Till then i bid thee adieu..

I was just a fan who turned totally crazy when LGBD was released. I went to a bunch and gigs, and listened to the previus Cardiangs albums...And the cardigans ment allmost everything to me.....But since the release of Super Xtra Gravity, i kind of went back to normal again..
hehe...good, that i didnt get that tatooo !!!!!!!!

hello, just wanted to introduce myself. my name is joe and i'm from boston in the usa. i wasn't really much into the cardigans. i only knew "lovefool" (who doesn't) and "my favorite game". i remember when "my favorite game" came out, thinking to myself that the band must have decided to go more hardcore since "lovefool" was such a poppy song.

anyway, earlier this year, i heard "lovefool" on xm satellite radio and it made me wonder whatever happened to the cardigans. so i started poking around on the internet and figured out they were still around and had released a couple of albums (LGBD and SEG) that i never knew of. then i started looking on youtube and found all of the great videos there. the first that i came across was for "erase/rewind" and i thought that was one of the best songs i ever heard, so it made me look for more. i started watching and downloading all of the videos i could find (especially concerts - there were a lot from the 1997 stockholm show). once i could figure out which songs were from which album and when each album came out, i thought it was really interesting to hear the progression in their sound from album to album. not only does nina have a unique voice, but the sound is so varied over the course of their career. oh, i remember being really confused trying to figure out what was going on with the bass player in the various GT videos!

well, it got to the point where i couldn't get enough of the cardigans, so i gradually bought the last 5 cds and london dvd and downloaded live concerts that i could find. i would have to say that at first, i really didn't like LGBD, but the more i listened, the more it grew on me, and now it's my favorite cardigans album - it's not even close. i think it's a really brave step forward for the band to expand their sound.

i have been lurking on the forums for a while. i wish i had discovered the cardigans in more depth years ago so i could have seen them in concert, since they really haven't been to the usa in a while and it doesn't look like they'll be here anytime soon.

i work with a band from scotland called the trashcan sinatras and it's really interesting to read some of the comments on the board and even mags' own comments about their record label, dissatisfaction with promotion, not being sure when the band will record or tour, etc...these are similar issues we have dealt with (the cardigans have sold many many more records and are much more popular around the world, so the scale is a bit different!). this whole greatest hits cd is a bit perplexing to me, especially since it's supposed to come out next month. i looked at the cardigans' soundscan numbers for each album and can see how they have declined and how that related to the lack of record company promotion/support - no support equals no radio airplay equals no tour...i think unless you get lucky and the internet or tv/movies pick the band up and generate publicity.

i also found it almost ironic to listen to the interview from the kcrw session (which i only discovered a couple of months ago and is fantastic) - the similarity to the trashcans' interview on that same show a year earlier is scary.

anyway, i guess the point of all of this is that i'm a relative newcomer to the cardigans but i've become a big fan in a short time. i wish the band luck as the music industry is changing and everyone is trying to figure out how to deal with it...bands and record labels alike. i look forward to a new album and tour, whenever that might be.

^ Welcome aboard! Interesting to read your progression into a full blown addiction to the Cardigans. Better late than never, right?

It's a bit frustrating knowing how good they are, yet they are ignored or unheard by so many. Hopefully this "Best of" will give them a boost big enough that they get more attention on the next studio album and maybe another tour. (Keeping my fingers crossed.)

Hey! I Listen to Black, Death and Thrash Metal and Cardigans(?). I Just cant get the lyrics from "Explode" out of my head! It's great! And I am werry suprised over the sounds they choose on the instruments.
