, decided to focus on designing and maintaining looptrooprockers.com and not to be an active member of the group. He however rejoined the group in 2010 as Promoe announced at a concert in Helsinki on May 19, it was officially announced on their website website on May 21. On their fourth album, Good Things, the group changed its name from '''Looptroop''' to Looptroop Rockers, a name they've used unofficially for some years prior to the change. Biography Looptroop was formed in 1991 by Promoe and Embee. The two had met while attending school in Västerås and were still in their teens at the time of the group's inception. Cos.M.I.C joined shortly thereafter and in 1993 the group independently released their cassette (compact audio cassette)-only debut EP (Extended play) ''Superstars'', which was followed in 1995 by ''Threesicksteez''. By the time they released their third cassette, ''From The Wax Cabinet'' (1996), long-time associate and frequent collaborator Supreme had become a permanent member of the group. It was in the pre-DVSG time when Promoe and Cos.M.I.C were also part of a group of graffiti writers called the "BIF" (Babylon Is Falling) crew in Västerås.

Retailing and trade One of the historical reasons that made Västerås a city is its trading-friendly location by the river Svartån and lake Mälaren. The city remains one of the main logistical centers in Sweden due to its central location in the densely populated region Mälardalen (Mälaren Valley) and favourable infrastructure connections with railways, waterways and highways. Amongst others, ICA AB has one of its main distribution centres located in Västerås. Västerås is the birthplace of multinational clothing retailer H&M. Their first store was opened in the town centre in 1947. Commons:Category:Västerås

building programs

of central Västerås not destroyed by the building programs of the 1960s. Really nice surroundings, where you can walk on the small and winding lanes and look at some of the oldest buildings in Västerås and, if you like, visit local arts and crafts shops. Anundshög, which lies a few kilometers east of Västerås, is a nice place for a picnic during the summer. Anundshög is an ancient burial mound, 14 metres high and 60 metres across, making it the largest in Sweden. Next to the mound there is two big stone-ships. Take bus 40 towards Tortuna or go by car. Do If you like music you should try the jazz club '''Village''' or the new '''concert hall''' (tickets at Västerås tourist office housed in the same building, just a short walk from the railway station). Sadly the Village jazz club has recently closed due to financial problems, hopefully it will resurrect itself, but almost certainly not in its old building. '''ArosFortet''' is an indoor adventure facility challenging creativity and cooperation in group exercises. From city centre follow Kopparbergsvägen to the north, cross E18, then on the righthand side (about 2 km walking distance from city centre). There is a quite new '''bowling''' facility with a restaurant on Torgatan 1 in the city centre. Book in advance especially on Friday and Saturday evenings. Kristiansborgsbadet is a '''bathing''' facility with a traditional 25 m pool and a separate section with moist and dry sauna, and cold bath (''Romerskt bad''). Recommended. Djäkneberget close to the Cathedral has a nice '''park''' featuring hundreds of stones with inscriptions (quotes and names of people) from the enigmatic Sam Lidman that founded the park in the 19th century. If you have kids try Lögarängsbadet west of Västerås (a couple of kilometers). If you have half a day or so and transportation is arranged, you can visit '''the silver mine''' in Sala about 32km to the north on 67. Just follow the signs to Sala and the "Silvergruvan" is on the left. They give tours each day down into the mine. It's quite an experience both for adults and kids. Buy If you're interested in crafts, there's a beautiful pottery along Black River called "Krukmakeriet". It's open on Fridays and Saturdays and you will probably buy from the potter herself. She makes everything by hand and uses techniques like stoneware and raku. It's located close to the cathedral just next to Black River. Take a walk from Stora Torget, head north on the left hand side of Elite Stadshotell, cross the road after 100 meters, turn left til you get to the river and then turn right. You will see the "Krukmakeriet" on the right hand side after a couple of hundred meters. You will find everything from small candleholders to pieces of art. Eat If you have a tight travel budget and also want to avoid famous hamburger chains, try to grab a Kebab on a plate at either Hemdals or Sippan. Otherwise choose the vegetarian lasagna at '''Cafe Gränden''', Sturegatan in the city centre. Some of the city's most classic and oldest restaurants are restaurant '''Stadskällaren''', '''Stora Torget''', and '''Piazza di Spagna''' on Vasagatan. The latter is worth a visit just to meet the always friendly staff. *'''Sjökrogen''' is easy to find if you follow the river all the way down to the lake. It's a nice place to sit outside, right next to the water. Enjoy a good meal or have a drink, just sit in the sun, relax to the view and watch the sailing boats or the small Mälaren ferries come and go. * Commons:Category:Västerås
