Surely Fireside sounded like a Swedish version of Quicksand back then, but who cares? I still love this song and have done so since the day I bought it on digipack MCD at Plattformen in Eskilstuna (and I still love the Do Not Tailgate album that supposedly came out the same day as the EP, i.e. January 1, 1995).
Their first album in the new century – Elite – I’ve always held as their masterpiece though. Listened to it yesterday, and it’s still as good, almost ten years later. There where rumours about a gig this summer, but I haven’t heard anything more about that.
