Quite scary actually... I really liked the Upper Room, probabęy as the only Dane liking them. They were very special.

Well the time for renewing (or in these cases non-renewing) of Sony-Bmg contracts (Upper Room & Hope of the States) was at the same time so that explains that.

As for the Open....

It goes to show that major labels such as Sony Columbia don't really understand bands like the Upper Room. I think they'd have been better off on a smaller label such as Domino, Jeepster, Rough Trade etc.

Sometimes you don't get instant success with the first album. For example Clearlake have made 3 albums for Domino, and none of them have sold many copies, but the label are still retaining them for a 4th! A major label would have given up on them long ago.

Certainly Sony could have used a lot more of their financial muscle to promote the Upper Room and it seems they didn't bother.
