I never knew The Cardigans. I always thought they were the same band as The Corrs or The Cranberries. Only spelled different. But lately I read the novel Buzz Aldrin, hvor ble det av deg i alt mylderet? (thats the original title, I read it in Dutch), writen by the Norwegian author Johan Harstad, and The Cardigans and their music are all over the book. So I started listening, and I realy like what I hear.
