Alternative eurovision


#1

because we can do better than that, right?

host- that aussie guy who got his arse out
uk- savages
ireland- girl band
russia- pussy riot
sweden- trachimbrod
france- sebastian tellier (again)
denmark- iceage
spain- perro
iceland- sigur ros
germany- hasslehoff

that’s about as far as i can get off the top of my head, anyone know any good bands from bosnia-herzegovina?


#2

Ukraine – Gogol Bordello. Kind of.


#3

yeah that definitely counts


#4

Weird out of all the possible British bands you choose savages who have a French singer so they would probably be ineligible


#5

The UK - Chas & Dave
Switzerland - Celine Dion


#6

Belgium – Soulwax
Portugal – Seu Jorge


#7

He’s Brazilian, swap him out for Buraka Som Sistema


#8

Armenia - system of a down (ish)


#9

wtf, genuinely never knew that. chas and dave it is, then.


#10

To be fair, given recent entrants I don’t think they give a shit any more. Saturday’s Danish entry was Australian. Celine Dion’s about as Swiss as Steven Gerrard.


#11

Norway- Sløtface


#12

Sweden - Refused, obv


#13

Faust m8


#14

Finland - Kairon; IRSE!


#15

I’d have The Wannadies as my Swedish representation.


#16

Trachimbrod would win that for me for sure.

Austria - Soap & Skin
Serbia - Abul Mogard
Poland - Kyst
Netherlands - Machinefabriek
Bosnia & Herzegovina - Ofsaijd
Germany - Moderat
Lithuania - Eleven Tigers
France - Oiseaux Tempete
Australia - Seagull
Portugal - Tiago Benzinho
Italy - Giordini di Miro
Finland - Black Twig
Greece - My Wet Calvin
Switzerland - Animen
Sweden - Wildbirds & Peacedrums
Belgium - Soulwax
Denmark - WhoMadeWho
Iceland - Bloodgroup
Norway - Deaf Center


#17

Is this real? Huge if true.


#18

sick, got some listening to do (also, had no idea soulwax were belgian)


#19

Athens bands - quite fond of a couple of tracks of their first album.


#20

They never have. Celine Dion won for Switzerland in 1988. Serge Gainsborough wrote a winning song for France Gaul in 1965 for Luxembourg despite them both being French. Last time we won our singer was American.
