Tuk Tuk Rally
breaks up! Here is the band's press release:
The circle is closed and the bag is full. It is time to close the
books. It is time to end. Five years full of energetic song-writing
comes to an end, and now we are taking different paths with our
sights set on new projects.
Everything started once up on a
time by a kitchen table with an acoustic guitar and a harmonica,
which later turned into various live performances, radio and
tv-appearences. Happy days, dumb days, hectic days....
this, we want to thank all those who have been there, who have
turned our festival gigs into, to us, unforgettable memories,
the few chief mourners for their brave support a pale tuesday
night at Tre Backar and those who have bought our records.
With our feet steady on the ground and the flag at the top, we
hereby announce that Tuk Tuk Rally no longer exists. Thanks and
salute and later and goodbye! T.T.R 961021

23Till - The trio from Norrköping
have decided to throw in the towel and retire to the vast and lonely
fields. They celebrate this decision with a farewell concert at
Kulturkammaren in Norrköping on October 26th and one in Stockholm
at Tantogården on November 29th.
The reasons behind the break-up
are somewhat mysterious, rumours say there were fights within the close
circle of the band as well as rough infirmities of old age. Straight
answers are impossible to get to the questions raised.
- I own
the rights to the name, and I can't rule out that, within a couple of
years, I'll go on tour accompanied by two 19-year old german musicians
and play old 23TILL hits, says singer and guitarist
Bass-player Micke Pihlblad refuses
to comment the break-up and refers to his lawyer, who in turn looks at
starting judicial proceedings.
For the drummer,
Pär Andersson, the news about the break-up came as a
- But it suits me pretty well. The tough drum work
has given me a nasty tennis elbow, he says.
Though all members
of the band have hopes for pleasant farewell concerts. See 23TILL's
for the news in Swedish.
