Stockholm Syndrome

I've never been to Stockholm. I've been to Helsinki, which was lovely. Someday I'm going to do a Scandinavian tour. I'll need to be significantly better off financially than I am now.

Stockholm was the title of the New Fast Automatic Daffodils' single from their second album (Mind Body Exit). This doesn't sound at all like the work of a Madchester band and in parts reminds me as much of Julian Cope's early 90s work as anything. Good song- this is the five minute version rather than the three minute radio edit (which probably didn't get very much radio airplay).

Stockholm is a lovely city but I prefer Gothenburg.

I miss the days when I used to have to go to Sweden every six months or so with work. Never got drunk there, couldn't afford to.

This is a fine song from a fine album. I never associated the band with Madchester, possibly because this is about the only music of theirs I have, and have heard.

Stockholm could well be my fave European city. Well worth a visit but, as Drew said, don't expect to be drunk unless you've won the lotto before you go. Good song as well..
