CONTEST: Win a signed Per Gessle book!

PG_books_signedXmas (or XXXmas? 😉 ) is around the corner, so we thought it’s the best timing to announce our next contest. Huge thanks to Roos & Tegnér (publishing company) for offering Per’s 2 books for us to give away. Since we were there at the Göteborg Book Fair, we had the chance to make both books signed by the man himself. Besides Mr G’s artistic autograph, you’ll find a tiny message in the books, too.

2 winners will be picked. One of them wins the English book (Songs, Sketches & Reflections), the other the Swedish book (Texter, klotter & funderingar). We will do our best to mail the books as soon as possible, so that they can land under 2 Christmas trees in time.

 

In order to participate, answer the following questions (you will find help in the interview about the books we did with Per a month ago):

  1. Which books Per didn’t want to compete with, so he decided to publish 2 books instead of 1 thick book?
  2. Who did that interview with Per which can be found in both the English and the Swedish book?
  3. What does Per say, why doesn’t he want to talk too much about his own songs?
  4. Name at least 2 songs of other artists that have brilliant lyrics according to Per!

Send an e-mail with your name, home address (so we can send the book in case you win) and the answers to the questions to rxbcontests@gmail.com until 23:59 CET, 3rd December 2014. The 2 lucky winners will be announced a few days later.

Good luck!

Win a meeting with Gyllene Tider! – (Coop members only)

If you are a member at Coop (having a membership card), you can win awesome prizes in their exclusive contest: a meeting with Gyllene Tider, concert tickets AND even an autographed guitar and WeSC headphones, as well as signed vinyl.

 

1st prize
2 concert tickets for any of the concerts during the tour + an exclusive meeting with the band + 1 signed guitar + 1 set of WeSC headphones

2nd to 4th prize
Concert tickets + signed vinyl record + WeSC headphones

5th to 14th prize
Signed vinyl record

All you have to do to participate is to check your copy of “Dags att tänka på refrängen” album and answer the following 2 questions at Coop’s website:

  1. What color is the rocket in the booklet at the lyrics to “Jag tänker åka på en lång, lång, lång, lång, lång resa”?
  2. What time is it on the clock at “Dags att tänka på refrängen” lyrics?

You also have to give some reasons why you should win (in max. 50 words).

Contest ends on 16th June.

 

If you are not a Swedish citizen, you have to apply for the Coop MedMera-card at the checkout in a Coop store in Sweden. You can’t buy a membership card online. BUT, I sent an e-mail to Coop and asked if it is possible to take part in this promotion from abroad and unfortunately, it turned out that a membership card is not enough. I got this reply:

Yes, you have the opportunity to participate in the contest from abroad, but to answer the questions you must have a user account on www.coop.se and in connection with the registration of such an account a Swedish personal ID number is required.

 

So, it’s only for Swedish fans who also have a membership card at Coop. If any of our readers will win the 1st prize, it would be great to see that signed guitar and we hope to hear about the meeting with the guys. Good luck!

Why Small Apartments vinyls are not signed?

Today Per wrote this on Roxette Official and Per Gessle Official (Facebook) regarding the Small Apartments vinyl:

Out now, CD + double LP in coloured vinyl (one white/one red). Limited edition.

Small Apartments

 

He’s not mentioning that the vinyls are signed, however, earlier (on 14th March, 2013) he communicated that they are:

FINALLY!!!!! SMALL APARTMENTS SOUNDTRACK digital release date (Spotify + iTunes etc) March 18. CD will be out here and there March 27. Exclusive numbered and signed double-vinyl album out very soon as well. Have to decide which colour to use on the records first….. /P.

Looks like the SMALL APARTMENTS SOUNDTRACK double-LP, in coloured vinyl + signed + numbered in a limited edition will be out April 17! Sort of.

 

Some fans already received the double LP and say there is no signature on it. It was already strange that none of the online shops mentioned anything about the vinyl being exclusive. Now we’re wondering whether limited edition also means the copies are numbered or they are not. Many fans ordered SA vinyl together with the CD just because of it’s being extremely unique and now they seem to be disappointed, which is fully understandable.

Well, the album is a masterpiece, double vinyl is coloured and it’s a limited edition (being numbered or not; as Per says “It’s very limited. Only 350 copies were made.“) and Mr. G for sure will sign everyone’s copy in person if there is a chance to meet him, but still. What if there is no chance for a fan to meet him…?

 

 

Update (16:30, 29th April, 2013): Per replied to the question on Roxette Official:

Dear all, no SA vinyl soundtracks have been signed. They went straight to the “record stores” without passing that sharp pen of Mr G. A couple got signed at the Gyllene Tider instores last weekend. That’s it so far.

The problem is/was that the vinyl LP’s are not manufactured in Sweden anymore…… They went straight from Holland (or Germany) to international stores and internet shippers. I still haven’t got one!!!! /P.
