Here follows some
words from Kristofer Steen about the upcoming Refused DVD, published on
Are Fucking Delayed... Read Kristofer Steen's comment here
October 18th, 2004]
I was asked
to write a comment about the progress of the Refused DVD. To say that it's
been delayed is of course a gross understatement. However, for those of
you not familiar with the process of documentary filmmaking with its assembling
of material and editing etc, all I can say is that it takes quite a bit
of time to piece everything together. It is slowly but surely taking shape
and hopefully it will be worth the wait.
parts of the film to the Burning Heart-crew the other week so they can
testify that it does exist. The people at BHR has refered to the cautionary
tale of the boy who cried wolf too many times for me to mention a new releasedate.
The very thought of a mob of refusedfans with torches knocking on my door
claiming my soul and my harddrive is simply too terrifying. Hopefully,
it won't come to that.
I hope that the final result will please everyone who have had the patience
to wait for it.
/ Kristofer Steen
constant delaying sucks, but it will absolutely be worth the wait!
David Sandström has recorded some new songs as "David Sandstrom Overdrive".
There's no plans to release it right now so I'll get back to you with more
info about this when I know more.
from T(I)NC's masterpiece "Armed love" will be for the song "A small demand".
There's gonna be 2 previoulsy unreleased tracks on this one and it will
also be released as a picture 7" in the UK only, just like the "Black mask"
single. Also, the upcoming Lost Patrol Band will probably have their album
released this spring.
Talk to you
Just a small update
September 23 – 2004 ::
some info on the site that was not correct and changed some stuff here
and there. Not much to say about it. I have some ideas on a new design
for this site. It will probably have a new look sometime during the winter.
I hope to update the fanclub soon and I should really do something about
the related-bands section. Later dudes.
If you didn't
know: T(I)NC's latest single "Black mask" is released as a cool picture
7" in the UK only. Pretty cool.

dead" DVD has been delayed again. That really sucks!
Ok, see you.
The new T(I)NC
album "Armed love" has been out for a couple of weeks. To this date this
is by far their best album. I really love it. It's an excellent record
which everyone should have in their record-collection. It has everything
you want: catchy songs, tons of melodies, highly political lyrics and it
comes with awsome layout too. Read all about it here
I have vacation
now so I will not update this page in a couple of weeks. See you later.
Oh, if you're going to Augustibuller 6-7 of August (www.augustibuller.com),

about the Refused DVD but I guess it will not be out in August/September
as said before.
OK, there's been
some problems with the photosection >>>
that I updated last week. The account I was using didn't work that good
so I've now removed them and put them up again on another account and it
works fine now. I've also removed all the photos by Vique Martin because
some of them were just too personal to use there. I'll put up some of them
later and there's also some other photos coming which is not scanned yet.

out; The DVD Audio version of "The shape of punk to come". It's really
something special. The sound is really great and there is some new stuff
on it that's not on the original version. Burning Heart says it's going
to be released in August. I don't know if this is the releasedate for Europe
or the States. Maybe it's already out in the states? Anyway, I already
have this one and I suggest that you should get it too ;)

Ok, here we go
again. I've been e-mailing with both Dennis, David and Kristofer lately
about what's going on and there's plenty of shit going on right now so
here it comes:
February 20 – 2004 ::
Dennis is right
now in the studio recording an album for "The Lost Patrol Band" which is
a "punkier" version of The Lost Patrol. As I told you before there were
plans for a CDEP on Startracks but they decided to record an entire album
instead. Which label who will release it is yet to be announced. I can
also tell you that the new songs sounds really great live since I saw them
play last weekend. Dennis and The (International) Noise Conspiracy will
probably have their third album, entitled "Armed love", out in May/June.
It will be released by Burning Heart Records in Europe and by American
Recordings in the states. The (International) Noise Conspiracy is now a
four-piece band since Sara Almgren has decided to leave the band.
still working on the long awaited Refused DVD. It will probably be mastered
and coded at end of March. It will include live performances, other highlights,
interviews with the bandmembers and other stuff. Release date is yet to
be announced. The documentary might be shown on Swedish television but
please note that this is not at all confirmed yet.

regularly every week with stuff until the record is finished. I'll put
up a banner on this site when I get one. www.david-sandstrom.com

Hey! It's 2004
and it's the 5th year I'm running this site! The support has been overwhelming
so far and I hope you'll keep visiting the best Refused site there is this
year as well. Ok, so what will happen during 2004 you might ask? Well,
I know for sure that the best thing to look forward to is the release of
the "Refused are fucking dead" DVD!
hitting the market in 2004 is: "Songs to fan...", "The e.p. compilation"
and "The shape of punk to come" - all to be remastered and come out in
nice digi-pack versions. There's also coming a new album by The (International)
Noise Conspiracy, a CDEP with The Lost Patrol and probably a Jon F Kennedy
What will happen
on this site in 2004 then? Well, not too much since Refused are long gone.
But I'll keep you updated about the upcoming Refused-releases (mentioned
above) and news about the Refused related projects and the fanclub will
be up and running as usual (and it has been updated today as well!
