Here he is using all his cred on promoting a Scissor Sitters album. Do as Josh says. Only 3½ payments of 19.99.9.

As the Danish part of the next Nomex show case "Hokuo Nights" in
Tokyo, Japan, Lars "i Lommen" Vognstrup and his band of merry men and
one girl will build a fire, add gasoline and strike that sweet pop music
match. Banzai style.
Sumimasen while I kiss this guy!
It's all going down friday 25th of May. Other band are Husky Rescue (FIN), Kira Kira (ICE), Lo-Fi Fnk (SWE).
We are un-glad it's not us not being not there.
we cry alone in the rain here in Copenhagen we rejoice that we still
have the great music to comfort us. and a great new one to look forward
to. We expect to drop the next amazing album by Lars and The Hands of
Light after summer!

SPOT 2012 is over. Thanks to all who came out to the concerts with Shiny
Darkly, Snake & Jet's Amazing Bullit Band and Thee Attacks. We enjoyed you enjoying them, yes. Below is some kind words about the release parties Friday and our official Crunchy Club SPOT showcase Saturday.
This is how we release-party. Snake & Jet & Laura at HQ.
British CLASH MUSIC joined us at the release
party and they liked what they saw:
“Snake and Jet’s
Amazing Bullit Band boast groin-friendly psychedelic grooves and a mesmerising
dynamic between the gawky frontman and supercool Agyness Dean-alike on bass.
They’ve got the full package: style, songs, sublime riffs - do catch them next
time they darken your neck of the woods.”
"Thor, Thomas and Laura delivered a set that oozed of energy, groovy basslicks, and a lovely playfull guitar, all delivered with a confident smile."
Junk De Luxe
“The combination of guitar, bass, drums and vocal is not easily made exciting –
but Snake and Jet’s Amazing Bullit Band manages it to surprisingly great extent.”

Shiny Darkly had their sort-of-first-concert-outside-CPH-debut
at SPOT. With no less than four concerts during the weekend, it is only fair to
say that they made a depressingly beautiful first appearance in Aarhus. Gaffa, Soundvenue, Clash Music and Drowned in Sound agree:
note and every beat sounded as if it was a matter of life and death”
“The ability to repress
the anger and the smouldering gloominess without ever letting it explode is the
core in Shiny Darklys expression”
“Shiny Darkly are one of the acts we’d been tipped
about in advance, a youthful outfit from Copenhagen who play punky shoegaze,
led by a chap who looks like Alex Kapranos’ younger brother – they’re
wonderfully, chunkily energetic.”
"Singer Kristoffer Bech holds court in the centre of the stage, asking repeatedly "Who's suicidal?" before launching into the band's Bunnymen infused anthem 'He's Suicidal'. One song even sounds like The Horrors covering 'Anarchy In The UK' (no, we aren't kidding). Sure, it may have been done before but judging by the trio's cold demeanour, Shiny Darkly sincerely mean it, man."
DROWNED IN SOUND
Once again Thee Attacks tore SPOT apart. Not that we expected anything less. If you missed the show, you have to read this review (if you were there, you should still read it, of course). It's good. And funny. And every word is very true. Thee Attacks is the combination between a modern-day-Danish-Elvis and an old-school porn star with an unruly moustache. Yes.
"intriguing and down right impressive as they delivered a flawless, confident performance that radiated maturity and experience."
Indie Rock Reviews
Click the photo of the happy man with his whiskey to see the revealing photos from our SPOT after party at good old Sway.
It looked somewhat like this. Now you go wondering how it felt the day after...
Hopefully everyone has just as good a time as we had. But of course you had - with SPOT, Aarhus and all this crunchiness, who could ask for more? With all this said: thanks again for a great festival, see you next year!

And well… Monday was happy-official-release-day for the self-titled
Shiny Darkly debut EP. As most of you of course already know it’s insanely
beautiful. Let us present to you six very good reasons why you should give yourself a happy-Friday-present, buy it right here.
“Identifiable as hell,
but Shiny Darkly gives you a throughout kick in the heart with the six tracks
of the EP”
“You feel completely
captured in the gloomy universe”
“The monotonous and replicating songs are confident
and spot on”
“With an immediate fascinating understanding for distortion,
noise and not the least simple musical patterns, Shiny Darkly demonstrates a
professional understanding for the currents, which shaped new age and the post
(4/6) – Gaffa
which is impressively uncompromising with their sound”
(4/6) – Soundvenue
unique band which borrows from the past and augers well for the future”
These are sweet
words, but very well deserved, don’t you think? One thing the reviews have in common is their optimism on the bands behalf. As Soundvenue puts it "they can only grow bigger and darker from here". Darker, bigger, good.
