RoxAttaq planned to support U.S. releases

Thanks primarily to the work of Steven Howlett (who happens to be in the U.K.) there is now a site set up to coordinate the efforts of fans to promote Roxette in the United States. A spokesperson at Edel America Records, the U.S. label, says they "welcome the effort."

Located at www.roxette.net, a URL previously used by Steven for a Roxette news site, the U.S. "RoxAttaq" — as these efforts have become known — will be an ongoing project that is just getting off the ground. The first objective will be to help gain airplay for "Wish I Could Fly", which is being widely released to U.S. radio stations.

Besides Steven, Judith Seuma from Spain and TDR News Editor Lars-Erik Olson make up the original team of coordinators.

"We're looking for fans from all over the work to help us, and we've tried to make it easy for them to do so," Judith said.

What could make this an interesting activity is that the coordinators have been planning these internet-based activitites in conjunction with EAR. There will be cooperative efforts between EAR and the site.
