    Please bump Spill The Wine up to most played track. Can't believe that was some chart topper shit back when it was released. If I could tune into a channel on my car stereo and listen to shit like that I would never use my ipod again.

    I think the Swedish band should have called themselves "KRIG," which is "war" in Swedish. This would avoid confusion and show respect for the great American R&B/Soul/Jazz band, which has been around for over 40 years. Why use an English name if you're not from an English speaking country? It's like if some other country started calling their food "Cajun."
