Canada isn't the only country full of collectives. Swedish dance/big beat/totally whatever collective Teddybears will bring their chaos to our shores on September 12th with the release of Soft Machine. The list of guest vocalists is pretty fucking insane, bringing together the likes of Iggy Pop. Neneh Cherry, Elephant Man, Annie, Ebbot Lundberg of Soundtrack of Our Lives and Mad Cobra.

The band has been knocking about Scandinavia since the late '90s, starting out as a hardcore group, with a diverse list of influences like NWA and Bad Brains. Says bassist Jocke, "After a while our drummer left the band to pursue a career as a sculptor, and so we learned that cheap drum machines, electric guitars and vocoders could be a deadly combination."
