Inge Johansson as bass player for the upcoming Against Me! shows?

I've seen him several times touring with the the (international) noise conspiracy and as a dj. He's a really good performer on stage. However, I never got over his strictly pro-Palestinian position in the Near East Conflict.

I have no link or any statement to cite right now, but a picture of him in front of an ugly kind of Arafat-shrine in the Palestine territory always pops up when I think of him. I think we should keep the Near East out of this thread, though, or discuss it somewhere else.

And I appreciate that you don't believe all I say without proof. ;-) Maybe I find those old t(i)nc interviews that support my view in the near future. I'll come back to you then.

Oh, and btw, I once had a piece of paper pinned to my mirror that said "Merry X-Mas Inge tinc'! I think I would have kept it had I known he would be part of AM! one day.

okay, take for example this interview from 2001 - http://archive.sandiegopunk.com/interviews/tincinterview.php - in which he says a lot of controversial things about 9/11 and even claims that George W. Bush is no better than Osama bin Laden. Sure, that cowboy is no peace activist, but no better than Osama bin Laden?

While I don't necessarily agree with that sentiment, I can see where he's coming from. Estimates of civilian casualties from the Iraq War are in and around 100 000 to 200 000 with some as high as 1 000 000. Plus 4 400 American soldiers were also killed there. Now obviously a terrorist act and a war are two separate things however, I can definitely see the argument someone could make.

We're running the risk of going completely off-topic and derailing this thread so maybe we should end it here or at least move to the Discussion section in a new thread.

No one even says Near East anymore, but I'm assuming you mean the Israel-Palestine conflict. Israel is illegally occupying Palestine, so how one would not take a pro-Palestine stance is beyond me. You should probably not listen to Propagandhi either, ha ha. Anyway The (International) Noise Conspiracy rules. They never got their due in the States but they put out two of the best political punk/rock records of the early 00's "New Morning, Changing Weather" and "Armed Love". They were a phenomenal live act as well, but always seemed to live in the shadow of the singer's former band Refused. Aaaanyway, Inge is a great fit for Against Me! Very cool to see him rocking in the band.

And just to let this not turn into a political discussion: I prefer their first two records over the later ones. Wink

I think AM! played with Refused last year at FYF, but I don't think Inge played with them then. That's the only connection I can get.

I found a pretty informative interview with Inge in Swedish on a site called lukinzine.se. My Swedish isn't too good (and my English isn't perfect either), but here's my attempt at translating the relevant bit...

Q: How did you get to join AM! on tour?
- AM! did some Scandinavian gigs last year. I was there and got totally blown away by how good they were live. We hung around a bit after the shows and I thought they were nice people. Afterwards me and Laura kept in touch with each other sporadically. When Andrew left the band last spring, right before they were supposed to start recording the new album, we began to talk about me coming to USA and playing bass on the album. But that didn't happen, and instead Fat Mike from NOFX and Laura herself played bass during the recording sessions. I didn't think much of it until AM! booked a tour this autumn and contacted me again and asked if I'd be interested in playing with them. That's how it went, more or less.

Q: How did it feel to be asked to play with them?
- Totally unbelievably insanely wonderfully cool!

Q: What has been you relationship with AM!'s music in the past?
- The first time I heard them was when I was touring USA in 2005 or 2006. Our tour manager Keebler played the song Cliche Guevera for me and I liked it. During that period in USA you mostly heard emo and metal, and AM! were different, more rock, which was more up my alley. The title Cliche Guevara also spoke to me, it said something about how the political opposition to Bush was coming across.
I also remember that T(I)NC did a gig with AM! in Las Vegas around that time, but I remember it mostly because playing there was so weird. They say that "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas", and I've never liked Las Vegas. I'm sure it's an OK place if you're into gambling, drugs and sex trade, but I've only been there to play music, and I'd rather be doing it someplace else.
As far as AM! goes, later on I became a fan with the albums New Wave and White Crosses, but the upcoming album is actually better than either of those. My favorite song, however, is still I Was A Teenage Anarchist, hands down.

Anyone else buy the watch they released with Vannen?

I was thinking about getting the Descendents Timeage watch too but I might wait to see if the Coffee Time one ever comes back in stock.

So apparently Laura, James and Atom are already tracking some new songs. Holy shit. Then again the songs they just released had already been kicking around for awhile..
