After a thirteen year stint as vocalist of Swedish hard rockers, Sister Sin, Liv “Sin” Jagrell is making a name for herself with her new solo project, Follow Me. This heavy rock CD combines old school metal, trash and black metal into a modernized heavy metal style that will punch you in the gut and leave you wanting more!
Follow Me, Boys!, Disney's paean to the Boys Scouts of America, leaves no cliché unturned: we're even offered the old reliable "kid hanging over cliff by rope" bit. Corny, sentimental and obvious though it may be, the film is a delight to watch, especially whenever Fred MacMurray dominates the screen. MacMurray plays Lem Siddons, a 1930s musician who decides to settle down in a small Midwestern town. Here he meets pretty bank teller Vida Downey (Vera Miles), who bemoans the fact that the local boys have no organized activities with which to occupy their time. Volunteering to be a scoutmaster, Lem begins a local scout troop. There are some tense moments when banker Ralph Hastings (Elliot Reid) demands that Lem's scouts vacate their headquarters, but Reid's feisty millionaire Aunt Hetty (Lillian Gish) comes to the rescue. The film's throughline is the regeneration of local "tough kid" Whitey (Kurt Russell), who, after joining the Boy Scouts, straightens out and matures into a solid citizen. The film's lachrymose climax is kept "honest" by the sincere underplaying of Fred MacMurray.
Swedish metal frontwoman Liv Jagrell and her new band Liv Sin, born from the ashes of her defunct band, Sister Sin, just released a new video for the single "Let Me Out". This is the debut release of the band, prior to Follow Me (out April 28th via the Swedish label Despotz Records) which will be their first studio album. Enjoy the music.

Her importance to disco fans, however, began in 1977, when she recorded I Am a Photograph in Germany with production help from Tony Monn…
