single album

June formed the basis of Ant's second solo album Strip (Strip (Adam Ant album)). The album was recorded at Polar Studios in Stockholm in the late summer of 1983 with Phil Collins as both drummer and producer on both the title track and planned single Puss 'N Boots, with Richard James Burgess adopting the same roles for the non-single album tracks . The single "Puss 'N Boots" reached #5 on the UK charts, but the BBC banned both the video and the song for the follow-up single "Strip." Despite a vocal cameo performance from former ABBA member Anni-Frid Lyngstad, "Strip" only managed to peak at #41 before being withdrawn by CBS while the parent album barely scraped the UK Top 20. However, the Strip single fared quite well in America, only narrowly missing out on a US Top 40 hit single. To promote the album, which reached #65 on the ''Billboard'' Top 200 albums, in early 1984 Ant undertook another extensive US tour, some sixty dates in length, starting on 27 January 1984 at the Atlanta Civic Centre in Atlanta (Atlanta, Georgia) in Georgia (Georgia (U.S. state)) and lasting until 27 April 1984 at the Irvine Meadow Amphitheatre in Laguna Hills, California. http: www.adam-ant.net 1984.html Although UK television performances of Puss N'Boots and Strip had featured a quartet of Ant, Pirroni, Wiczling and Constantinou, the US tour featured the same seven-piece backing band as the previous album's tour, except for Steve King in place of Stewart Van Blandamer on saxophone. Strip Tour "Adam Ant Tour '84" Official Programme, Taurus Music (Overseas) Ltd, 1984 pp.3 & 23 The tour shows were also notable for featuring a recreation by Ant of the Chinese Water Torture Cell escapology stunt originally performed by Harry Houdini. In preparation for this Ant would, in keeping with the album title, undress onstage down to a pair of boxer shorts. 'Stand And Deliver', Adam Ant, Hodder & Stoughton 2006, p.230 With the collapse of the monarchy, many social democrats viewed previous tactical differences between the Mensheviks and the Bolsheviks as a thing of the past and a number of local party organizations were merged. When Bolshevik leaders Lev Kamenev, Joseph Stalin and Matvei Muranov returned to Petrograd from Siberian exile in early March 1917 and assumed the leadership of the Bolshevik party, they began exploring the idea of a complete re-unification of Bolsheviks and Mensheviks at the national level, which Menshevik leaders were willing to consider. However, Lenin and his deputy Grigory Zinoviev returned to Russia from their Swiss exile on April 3, 1917 and re-asserted control of the Bolshevik party by late April 1917, taking it in a more radical, anti-war direction. They called for an immediate revolution and the transfer of all power to the Soviets (Soviet (council)), which made any re-unification impossible. thumb right Leaders of the Menshevik Party at Norra Bantorget (Image:Mensevikii.jpg) in Stockholm, Sweden, May 1917. Pavel Axelrod, Julius Martov and Alexander Martinov In March–April 1917 the Menshevik leadership conditionally supported the newly formed liberal Russian Provisional Government. After the collapse of the first Provisional Government on May 2, 1917 over the issue of annexations, Tsereteli convinced the Mensheviks to strengthen the government for the sake of "saving the revolution" and enter a socialist-liberal coalition with Socialist Revolutionaries and liberal Constitutional Democrats, which they did on May 4, 1917 (Old Style). With Martov's return from European exile in early May, the left wing of the party challenged the party's majority led by Tsereteli at the first post-revolutionary party conference on May 9, but the Right wing prevailed 44–11. From that point on, the Mensheviks had at least one representative in the Provisional Government until it was overthrown by the Bolsheviks during the October Revolution of 1917. death_date Commons:Category:Stockholm Wikipedia:Stockholm Dmoz:Europe Sweden Stockholm County Localities Stockholm

metal scenes emerged in Gothenburg and Stockholm. The first wave of "Swedish death metal" consisted of the bands Carnage (Carnage (band)) and Nihilist (Nihilist (band)), who fragmented later into Entombed (Entombed (band)), Dismember (Dismember (band)) and Unleashed (Unleashed (band)). Many of these bands used the trademark Tomas Skogsberg Sunlight Studios "buzzsaw" guitar tone. It was created by using heavily detuned (Guitar tunings) electric guitars (usually C# standard or lower), a maxed out Boss (Boss Corporation) HM-2 Heavy Metal pedal, sometimes in combination with a single guitar through a Boss DS-1 Distortion pedal. The originator of this guitar sound was Nihilist guitarist Leffe Cuzner though it was evolved and altered over the years. Ekeroth, chapter 3, "The Birth of Swedish Death Metal", p. 54-86. Newer bands playing in the 'old school' Swedish style include Bloodbath, Paganizer and Repugnant.

to the Dutch entry, Teach-In's "Ding-A-Dong". Having long since stepped out of Cliff Richard’s ‘shadow’, this was a rare excursion into lyrics for a band better known for instrumentals (however they had cut vocal tracks on most albums, plus some singles 'B' sides, and had two charting vocal singles in the sixties). Bruce Welch had lead vocal duties, and let the world know when he forgot a couple of words when he turned to his colleagues and said “I knew it” in range of his microphone. Author and historian John Kennedy O'Connor notes in ''The Eurovision Song Contest – The Official History'' that they were not a popular choice to represent the UK and the viewers' postal vote was the lowest recorded in the 'Song For Europe' history. O'Connor, John Kennedy. ''The Eurovision Song Contest – The Official History.'' Carlton Books, UK. 2007. ISBN 978-1-84442-994-3 But the contest re-established The Shadows and the single climbed to number 12 in the UK charts. An album of new material, including both vocal and instrumental tracks ''Specs Appeal'' was released to coincide with their Eurovision appearance. The area '''SoFo''', or "South of Folkungagatan" is located in Södermalm, a district of Stockholm, Sweden. It is bounded by Folkungagatan street to the north, Ringvägen to the south and in the east and west by Erstagatan and Götgatan, respectively. Defection However, on August 31, 1950, in the middle of a holiday in Italy, he abruptly left Rome for Stockholm with his wife and three sons without informing friends or relatives. The next day he was helped by Soviet agents to enter the USSR from Finland. His abrupt disappearance caused much concern to many of the western intelligence services, especially those of Britain and the USA who were worried about the escape of atomic secrets to the Soviet Union after the then recent case of Klaus Fuchs. But as was pointed out immediately, Pontecorvo had had only limited access to "secret subjects" and even later no allegation of spying or of transferring of secrets to the Soviets has ever been made against him. **Gothenburg - Gothenburg-Landvetter Airport **Stockholm - Stockholm-Bromma Airport * '''United Kingdom Tengbom was born in Vireda in Jönköping County, studied at the Chalmers School of Technology (Chalmers University of Technology) in Gothenburg 1894-1898, at the architecture school of the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts in Stockholm 1898-1901 (being awarded the so-called Royal Medal) and abroad 1905-1906. He worked 1906-1912 with Ernst Torulf in Stockholm and Gothenburg 1906-1912, and on his own from 1912 in Stockholm. He was appointed architect in the Office of the Chief Intendant in 1906 and professor of architecture in the Royal Swedish College of Art in 1916. He became a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts in 1917. In 1921 he was appointed Director General of the State Office of Construction (''Byggnadsstyrelsen''). IFK was founded in Stockholm by two young students (Louis Zettersten and Pehr Ehnemark) that wanted to create a sports association, consisting of a main club in Stockholm with smaller clubs in other parts of the country. This was in a time when no nationwide sports organization or other larger associations existed. An advertisement in the youth paper ''Kamraten'' (The Comrade) that was published 1 February 1895 called forth all sports interested boys and girls in Sweden to join the society. Less than two months later, clubs in Luleå, Härnösand, Uppsala, Jönköping, Gothenburg and Västerås had been founded, aside the main club in Stockholm. It was decided to name the society after the paper that made the creation possible. Subsequently Tõnisson was arrested by Bolshevik forces on 4 December 1917 for organizing a pro-Provincial Assembly meeting in Tartu. He was forced out of the country on 8 December. The Council of Elders of the assembly came together underground and decided to make him an Estonian delegate to Stockholm to find support for Estonian independence, or at least for its autonomy. Tõnisson and other members of the Russian Provincial Assembly were named Estonian delegates abroad and Tõnisson became the leader of Estonian Foreign Delegations, a position that he would still be his when Estonia declared it’s independence on 24 February 1918. The delegations were eventually turned into embassies and in Stockholm, Tõnisson met with German and French ambassadors to find support for Estonian independence, but was later sent to Copenhagen, though several Estonian delegates eventually gathered in Stockholm. ''XX sajandi kroonika, I osa''; Eesti Entsüklopeediakirjastus, Tallinn, 2002; p. 166 On 16 March 1918, Swedish (Sweden) Minister of Foreign Affairs (Minister for Foreign Affairs (Sweden)) agreed to meet the delegates, but didn't grant any support. ''XX sajandi kroonika, I osa''; Eesti Entsüklopeediakirjastus, Tallinn, 2002; p. 172 After the German Occupation of Estonia (Occupation of Estonia by the German Empire) had ended, Tõnisson returned to Estonia on 16 November 1918.

Stockholm

'''Stockholm''' ( approximately 1.4 million in the urban area (Stockholm urban area), and a total population close to 2.2 million in the metropolitan area (Metropolitan Stockholm). The city is spread across 14 islands on the coast in the southeast of Sweden at the mouth of Lake Mälaren (Mälaren), by the Stockholm archipelago and the Baltic sea. The area has been settled since the Stone Age, in the 6th millennium BC, and was founded as a city in 1252 by Birger Jarl.
