The Piano has been drinking, not Me.
Despite the name of our grand society, we do like a lot more music than metal - and here is the place to find out exactly what we DO like for the time being!

At the latest tasting, the following music was played loud, enjoyed and discussed heavily;

March 25:th - best bass-line on earth.
Due to an exorbitant intake of Springbank (that happens, you know) and a somewhat malfunctioning note-taking, we have only got a few scetchy ideas of what was played, and considered the best bass-line in the world. Some songs played were however:

Hare Rama - from Hair (Robbe, confessing religous flavour)
Bob Marley - Get Up, Stand Up (Tomas. Expected? Moi?)
Lou Reed - Take A Walk on the Wild Side (Nenne, out of character?)
Paul Simon - You Can Call Me Al (Göran, not playing country for once)
Massive Attack - Safe From Harm (David, pretentious, moi?)
Death from above, 1979 (Anders being loud)
Ozzy Osbourne - No More Tears (Mats, not really understanding that the song was played earlier)
Black Sabbath - Iron Man (Johan. Trust a bearded viking to understand "Metal" in Malt&Metal)
Spinal Tap - the song with four basses (Maria, can't remember the title of this, but excellent choice none the less)
The Golden Cups - Hey Joe (Mark, nailing the best bass-line of all times. Without doubt)
King Crimson - Elephant Talk (Niklas, who else?)
The Who - something off Quadrophenia (Charlie, with some explanation including drugs, prostitutes and bass players. Very Malt & Metal Society)
Tool - Schism (Ted. Bassplayers of the world, stand up!)
Chic - Good Times (Per. Per? PER?!?)
Janes Addiction - some 11 minute long song whose title I can't remember (Carl-Marcus, gearing up for serious beer-tasting)
and a few others... but watch this space as memory returns!

september 18:th best-of orgy...
with the "best song right now" theme with an added "why not play some metal?" here is what actually was played:
Christer: The Verve - Love Is Noise
Hasse Wilholm: Slipknot - Psychosocial
Anders M: Black Keys - I Got Mine
Anders F; Danko Jones - Cold Of The Road
John T: Linton Kwesi Johnson - Sonnys Lettah (hello Linton!)
Ronnie S: Invasion - Moongazer
Tomas H: Save Ferris - the world is mine (eh... save ferris? ähum.)
Peo B: Endless Boogie
Eva Karman: Amon Amarth - Twilight of the THundergod
Mårten A: Pink Floyd - The Great Gig in The Sky (what a tribute!)
Gordon; Soundgarden - Louder Than Love
Eric G: Kraftwerk - Computer World
Daniel: Stone Roses - Love Spreads
Lee R: AC/DC - Fire Your Guns
Jerker J: Filter - In Dreams
Nenne Z: Burst - We Watched The Silver Rain
David: The Birthday Massacre - Red Stars

Pinning down what song actually is the best swedish song, ever, we have now concluded the following:

Eric: STABB "Vicious Vicious Vicious"
Robbe: Ebba Grön "Flyktsoda"
Robban: Olle Ljungström "Jag Spelar Vanlig"
Mellis: Ted Gärdestad "Sol, Vind och Vatten"
Göran: Jan Johansson "Visa Från Utanmyra"
Niklas: Eva Dahlgren "När en vild ros blommar... etc."
John Tshilis: Cornelis Vreeswijk "Balladen om Fredrik Åkare och Cecilia Lind"
Jerker: Nina Rochelle "Nattrafiken"
Tomas H: Reeperbahn "Peepshow"
Peter M: Kent "De Andra"
Peo: Blå Tåget "Staten och Kapitalet"
Jonas H: Kent "Mannen i den vita hatten (16 år senare)"
Per A: Kent "747"
David: Silverbullit "Star"

despite a LOT of Kent, we all agreed that Jan Johansson has to walk victorious from this battle, Tekken III-style.

Music with a connection to Japan:
Bob Marley - Survival (Tomas Hegert) "Cause Bob Marley broke internationally after playing live in Japan". Hrm.
Japan - Ghosts (Olle)
Kanye West - Flashing Lights (Peter M) "a japanese guy designed the sleeve". Obviously.
My Bloody Valentine - Soon (Nicke) "for their brilliant music in Lost In Translation"
Tom Waits - Big In Japan (Mellis)
Carola - Tokyo, Jag Väntar På Dig (Robbe) - what was he thinking?
John Lennon - Oh Yoko (Simon)
Acid Mothers Temple - La Novia (Peo)
Miles Davis - So What (Robban Q) "live from Japan"
Deep Purple - Smoke On The Water (Björn) "you are a malt and METAL society, right? this is from Made In Japan" ...eeh, well.... we... eeeh... ok.
Mental As Anything - The Nips Are Getting Bigger (JohnT) "Nips mean drink shots, but reminds you of Nippon, the japanese name for Japan". Sort of far fetched, we say.
Cocobat - Gummisnodd (Anders)
David Sylvian / Robert Fripp - God's Monkey (Niklas A)
Athlete - Tokyo (David)
Soilwork - Stabbing The Drama (Daniel) "The singers wife is from Japan". Ah, we should have known.

the worlds best song?
needless to say, opinions were louder than ever when the best song in the world was to be christened:
The Doors - The End (Eric)
Alan Parsons Project - Time (Gordon)
Dean Martin / Ricky Nelson - My Pony, My Rifle and Me (Göran)
David Bowie - Life On Mars (Per)
Depeche Mode - Home (Niklas)
Frank Zappa - Willy The Pimp (Peo)
Johann Sebastian Bach - Jesus Bleibt Meine Freunde (Mårten)
Frank Zappa - Peaches En Regalia (Tomas)
Bob Marley - Redemption Song (Daniel)
Kiss - I've Had Enough (Peter, who else?)
Captain Beyond - I Can't Feel Nothin' (Micke)
Edgar Winter - Dying To Live (Robbe... surprised?)
Genesis - Firth Of Fifth (David)
though slightly diffuse notes from the end of the meeting, Peo and Tomas put forward that the Hot Rats album should be the best album in the world, since two separate people voted for songs from it. This was of course vetoed, yelled at and protested violently.

David Peel - Legalize Marijuana (Peo has stopped smoking. Apparently not completely)
Sereena Maneesh - x

Super Erotica - Magnetic Sounds
