The World Famous Hat Trick

by Vibeke

Vibeke hits you right between the eyes with her style of pop rock. It\'s a \"glam slam\" to be sure. I affectionately describe her as Norway\'s answer to early \"Blondie\".

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On June 11, 2008, Pop Detective Records released VIBEKE “The World Famous Hat Trick”. Originally self released in Norway on Sprettball Records, the album has been completely re-mastered in the USA. Two additional bonus tracks have been added (covers of The Someloves “Know You Now” and an unreleased gem from Frank Secich and Jimmy Zero (Dead Boys) called “You Don’t Go Away”). Also included is the video for “He’s Peculiar”…a very retro-cool video that screams party all the way through! All of this presented in a vibrant digi-pack with bonus “stills” from the video!

VIBEKE is quite the music veteran even at her young age! She came to Norwegian prominence singing with a band called Weld in 1994. Weld was signed to EMI and released 2 albums and one EP, also winning a Norwegian Grammy. VIBEKE left Weld in order to pursue her own musical direction, and formed the short-lived Thelyblast and subsequently, Thinkerbell. Thinkerbell was a decidedly laid back, lyrically and musically mellow record. VIBEKE’s true calling has always been Power Pop / Rock and Roll, and so she decided to attack the genre full tilt under her own name, Vibeke Saugestad. The result was two fantastic solo albums on major labels Sony and Universal in Norway. Although very popular in Norway, VIBEKE was not able to cross the border and expand her popularity outside of her home country. She decided to take control of her own destiny by releasing a 3rd solo album on her own label, Sprettball, in Norway. Mark Hershberger of Pop Detective Records USA, a longtime fan of VIBEKE’s work, jumped at the opportunity to release “The World Famous Hat Trick” in the USA! And, the completely re-mastered album, along with two bonus covers and a music video, is now available on Pop Detective Records in the USA and, via distribution channels, in Japan as well! This is Vibeke’s first USA and Japanese release!

VIBEKE also plays keyboards for bubblegum / power pop / punk band The Yums Yums (another legendary Norwegian band) and, in her spare time, sings in the garage / soul group, The Twistaroos!

CLASSIC POP AT IT\'S FINEST
I first heard the song \"Tonight\" by Vibeke on Little Steven\'s Underground Garage. Next they played \"He\'s Peculiar\" and I was hooked! I got on line to look for the cd and of course it was only availabe from our good friends at CD Baby. This cd is filled with incredible hooks and great vocals from first note to last and all of the songs were written by Vibeke too. She hails from Norway and her music harkens back to the best of 70\'s pop radio. I could hear ABBA doing any of these songs. It\'s kinda in the style of their earlier pop stuff before they started their dance crap! Anyone who loves well written pop with great hooks should order this cd NOW!
