Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments We reach Lez's turn this week, and it's time to meet Norwegian synth pop band, A-ha.

Wiki tells me their first album was released in 1985, and to date they have had 10 full length releases. It appears that they have split and reformed several times, and appear to be on the go to this day.

The usual rule, noms in by 10 pm Sunday evening, leave a (correct) link to your nom, and come back to finish off the game by voting next week.

Looks like the summer has come to an abrupt end here, stay dry wherever you are :-)

theDuke | 5721 comments From their unsuccessful 5th album Memorial Beach released in 1993. I rate this album far more than the too overly 'pop-ness' of their earlier hit albums. This is a great song....dark & moody, just how i like 'em..and Morten Harket vocals excel on this one. :)

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Whoops! I've had a busy day and I nearly forgot about this, but we'll get it closed before bed time.

A close run race this week, but emerging with the gold, Sj nabs his first gong for while with I've Been Losing You. Two points behind and a silver for Tech with The Sun Always Shines on T.V. Filling the podium, and a further point behind, Take On Me adds a bronze to Brass Neck's haul.

And, for yet another week, the wooden spoons gather dust.

Brass Neck | 3785 comments Well, if we're simply naming Norwegian bands we like absent of synths or pop then I'll put in a good word for The Northern Belle's Scandicana (one for Val?) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ll07U... and death metallers' classic/melodic rock side band Sahg who knock out an album every demi-decade or so - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62INf...
