Some of the inherent dilemma of Wig Wam was always whether they were a parody band or not? I'll admit to not having bought anything since "Wigwamania", but there were moments on that particular album where a future with a less gimmick-y, more serious melodic direction seemed entirely plausible to these ears.

Now that remains a path never taken, but as you point out, Niv - I'm sure the guys will keep turning up in new projects of various kinds, Aage Sten Nilsen and Trond Holter especially.

I should add that I saw them live three times and they were brilliant on every occasion - very energetic, catchy and surprisingly dancable for the female contingent in the audience: In short, highly entertaining and very professional musically.
