Yep in Argent, especially as Rod Argent and Jim we’re cousins.

Didn't Rodford also play in Argent and Charlie too?

PV (Denmark) - 1999 Create Your Lover [Demo]

ALBUM: Create Your Lover
LABEL: Big Wave Records
YEAR: 1999


LINEUP: PV - vocals, guitars * Inge Rydpal - guitars, xylophone * Morten Arnettvedt - bass * Iver Sandoy - drums, percussion

TRACK LISTING: 01 Summer Days * 02 Create Your Lover #1 * 03 The Thing You Do * 04 While You Sleep * 05 Create Your Lover #2

Here's a 5 track promo that will appeal to all the power pop afficienados out there. Those who like their pop somewhere in the vicinity of Kyle Vincent, The Sighs, The Knack or a lighter version of Enuff Znuff will go for our budding Scandanavian popster (we guess he's from Denmark, but stand corrected if we're wrong). PV (name unknown) is the main man behind this showcase effort, and visually comes off looking like a Ricky Martin clone, though the music has severe leanings towards those heady days of sixties style pop, which on this effort, sounds remarkable fresh and updated.

The Songs
Though this 5 tracker is really just a teaser/taster, you get the idea quite quickly as to the type of approach being undertaken. Those jangly guitars, with sixties type effects, the stripped down sound of the rhythm section. It's easy to tell that there are no one million overdubs courtesy of a luxurious recording budget here. Despite the fact that this is pure power pop, arrangement wise I guess the closest comparison I can make would be David Hallyday's magnificent Blind Fish project from 1994. So that's a compliment in itself because David is held in the highest regard by the staff of GDAZE. Of the songs, 'Summerdays' is a just that, a breezy jangly workout, while the excellent 'The Things You Do' is brilliant hard driving pop with a vocal accompaniment by Jannicke Larsen. The fifth track 'Create Your Lover #1' sounds as if it could be a Blind Fishtrack, with PV's vocals zeroing in on Hallyday.

In Summary
So there we go, a sampler of Scandi pop with a bit of fresh talent to boot. The whole thing comes across as very jangly, with a bit of everything thrown in for good measure. Thanks to Marion Amundsen at Big Wave Buz. For any inquiries relating to PV, contact Marion at
