P, C & C rockin' the plumber's crack (V): SOAP success in Sweden and TV time

P, C & C go straight to #1 on the Swedish album chart with his Son of a Plumber project beating Madonna! The new album already sold platinum (60,000 copies) in Sweden the first day.

On November 27th, 2005, Per Gessle was interviewed at TV Huset. The band also play (not live) the song Jo-Anna says, with Clarence Öfwerman, Helena Josefsson, Jens Jansson and Magnus Börjeson. We missed Christoffer Lundquist, but he was working at AGM studio.

Per Gessle and Marie Fredriksson (Roxette) were on a stage at the Dorchester Hotel in London last 29th November 2005 to receive two BMI awards for “Listen to Your Heart” which has been played 2 million times (and is also the “Dance Song of the Year”) and “It Must Have Been Love” which has been played over 4 million times on US radio.

Per Gessle and his Son of a Plumber project were guests at TV4’s Nyhetsmorgon this morning. Son of a Plumber performed “Hey Mr DJ” live in an acoustic version and “I Have a Party in My Head” lipsynced.

Son of a Plumber has been nominated for a Grammis - Best Male Pop Artist. The Grammis gala will be held February 7. In our opinion, the great work of all the band (C&C, Helena, Jens, Magnus) is worth more than a solo momination.

SOAP forum

We have read many comments about Son of a Plumber. For those who think that "Son of a Plumber" is not just another sideproject to keep Per Gessle busy, there is a new forum nicely moderated by ""The nice Kai", from Berlin" and others. Please, visit the SOAP forum.

By the way, we have read many comments about the role of Helena Josefsson, a big role that some fans of Roxette do not like at all. Three German girls created some time ago a good web dedicated tot he singer, http://www.helena-josefsson.com (Updated 2008: This web is deleted).

Yesterday, New David vistited Malmö and met up with Metro Jets/Brainpool David (David Birde), nowadays often referred to as “Old David”. The two of them went to the gay club Tomboy, where Jens played with Monkeystrikes. Some hours later, Brainpool-Christoffer, Metro-Magnus and Helena from Sandy Mouche flew to Stockholm to play with Son of a Plumber on morning tv. Old & New David probably slept at that time. I sure did & missed all of it. But you can watch it on the web. Go here to watch.
