The End of the Affair

We've come to the last post on The Rain Fell Down, and the reason is of course that I'm sadly no longer in Glasgow and I've already put off the ending for too long. I started writing here so people could keep track of what I was doing in the rain, but it ended up being more about keeping track of the music I discovered. And then there was the radio show of course. As far as I know all off the programmes and podcasts are still available to download, and everything will stay that way for as long as technology allows. It's been fantastic living in Glasgow and it turned out I met some really nice people through this blog. So cheers to everyone who was kind to me, cheers to Sinister, to everyone who has read and listened, to people who have left comments or written, and to the poor old souls who have bothered dragging stuff down to the post office. I hope you've found music you didn't know you couldn't live without and I hope I've helped some bands on their way (back - in some cases...). I'll return some day, but I'm not dead you know! I'm alive, starting a new degree that will probably get me stuck in Malmö for some years, with lots of new favourite bands to discover - and I'll write about it all on Heaven Is Above Your Head. Malmö is still quite POP!, although it's not in the same league as Glasgow. But if I happen to miss it to much I can always put on a song by Butcher Boy, The Hermit Crabs, All My Friends, Wake the President, Cake Taker, BMX Bandits, The Orchids, California Snow Story, Tibi Lubin, The Pastels, Zoey Van Goey, Park Attack or any of all the other bands that will always make me think about Glasgow - and I'm sure I'll smiling again in no time. I'll think about sitting in my garden, picnicing in Kelvingrove Park, dancing at NPL, the West End foxes, drinking strudel tea at Tchai Ovna and splashing along in George Square. And everything and everyone else! But naturally, playing at The Winchester Club with A Smile and a Ribbon will always be special. I keep forgetting it's happened... It was so nice to have you all in my flat! And thanks to everyone who came to see the gig - I hope you want us to come back soon. So drop by on the other end of the rainbow, and I leave you with you a goodbye hug underneath your umbrella!

I will miss the rain fell down and your inspirational radio programs a lot - it's been a breath of fresh air and so great to know that the flame of true indiepop is still kept burning by some (although it seems like an uphill struggle in these dumbing down times, where people presume indie means Coldplay - ugh).
I will switch to your other blog just to keep track of your new adventures.

Keep on keepin' on

I discovered your blog a bit too late, but I enjoyed what I was able to read (and listen to!)
Thanks for the music's (once again) breath of fresh air--after the rain, of course!

I'm gonna miss your write ups on the bands that I loved from the 80's (and other bands that I did not know so much about. Hope that you will start a new blog soon when you return to Sweden.

You'll be glad to know that the rain fell down reached out to people who live as far away as Singapore!
