Question ID: 767740
Back in 2000 my brother introduced me to a band called "Lokomotiv"
here in the USA by e-mailing me an MP3 of theirs. I've done some
research and found that they were supposed to come out with the album
"What's Your Good Luck?" in 2000 but I'm not sure if that ever
actually happened. I have their Advance CD from Mammouth Records
(which I found on eBay after years of searching) but I'd like to know
if it was ever officially released, and if not, why?

Also, after more research, I found out that the band is originally
from Norway under the name "Locomotives" and have been making CD's there
since around the mid-1990's. I really like their music and would like
to get their albums, but I don't know where to buy them, how
many they came out with, etc. All I know is what I've found at
yet I can't even read the page because it's in Norwegian!

Here is what I know and correct me if I'm wrong: 
Welcome To The House Of The Locomotives (EP)
Mind (1996 EP)
Flinstones (1997 EP)
Spin (10-track CD)
Albert (EP)
Hallelujah EP: The Richmond Session (2001 EP)
then they broke up?

So if anyone can provide as much info on this band as possible, I'd
appreciate it. More importantly, where can I buy all of those CDs??!?

Howdy ethanwa79-ga,

It would help to know which resources you have already checked, and what you
would accept as an answer.

For instance, have you checked out:

I noticed you don't have: "G.R.I.L.L" [EP] - Released 8/18/97 by RCA.

I have located a site where you might be able to legally purchase a download
of the Hallelujah EP: The Richmond Session for around $8.00 and composed of:

- Hallelujah
- Schizophrenic
- King Kong
- Monster
- Flintstones

I have located a few people that might have a copy of "Albert."

It appears that "What's Your Good Luck?" is actually named "Tell Me What's
Your Good Luck" and was a cut on their "Albert" album, which includes:

- Alberts Theory On Unknown Subjects
- Atomic
- Bored
- Dead
- Down
- Drunk
- My Woman
- Tell Me Whats Your Good Luck
- Three Girls
- Yeah

You might be interested in that the release date of "Albert" was 1/2/99.

I have located most if not all of the album/EP covers, and several resources,
although most are (naturally) in Norwegian.  There is a no cost Norwegian to
English online translator out there, so that might help you.

I might be able to locate more of the music, but it might be tough.

Please advise.  Thanks!

Looking Forward, denco-ga - Google Answers Researcher

Thanks for the info, that is good stuff. I haven't yet seen so thanks for that site!

I'm actually only interested in the Hallelujah EP: The Richmond
Session songs if I can buy the physical CD (I'm a music collector), so
a download won't quite cut it for me.

If you can give me the location of all of the album covers, that would
be great. What site has the free Norwegian translation? Also, any
links or resources to where I can buy any of these would be nice. I'd
consider the question answered then.

As a final bonus question (and I might actually have to make this a
seperate question with it's own cost), do you know why Tell Me What's
Your Good Luck was never officially released and only promo copies
were distributed? I have never seen the actual release ever in the USA
from any store, and the only pictures of the cover I have seen says
"Advance CD" on them.

Thanks! - Ethan
