I doubt this band is notable enough yet, and wonder how it survived AfD (or did it?). If it really belongs here, then I'm off to write Crownthorn (band) . (they've even got discography). And yes, you've got so much attention because of the name–Gnomz007(?) 19:37, 5 March 2006 (UTC) Oops, Google hits are impressive, then this arcticle in need of cleanup–Gnomz007(?) 19:43, 5 March 2006 (UTC)
Google hits get more impressive with each release! Glad to see we didn't have to recreate this article again just because the Wikipolice aren't up on their UK indi music ;) Nli10 13:43, 31 July 2006 (UTC)
Should we delete the reviews? --Horses In The Sky 11:54, 15 March 2006 (UTC)
- I've added some new information about their next single (Eighteen). One of the bands is called :(, pronounced colonopenbracket (which is their website address and myspace and stuff), and it is often written online as ":( [colonopenbracket]". I wasn't sure what a page would be called for them, so I didn't make it a link, since there isn't a page for them yet. I suppose people will worry about that if :( get big ;)
- Wikipedia article can't begin with ":" so the article would have to be called Colonopenbracket.

where on earth?
A Different Forward Russia: Should there be two articles?
I just wanted to note that I was automatically forwarded to this page when typing in <Forward Russia> in the Wikipedia search box -- but what I was looking for was information about the Russian political party.
"Forward, Russia!" took part in the 1995 parliamentary elections and received 1,9% of the vote, and 3 seats. The party was created by Boris Fedorov, who had previously been Russia's Minister of Finance. I remember reading about it at the time, and when I now wanted to look up more information about what the party had been about again, I eventually found this page about the 2003-2004 elections on the Radio Free Europe site (apparently Fedorov is still a minor political player): Boris Fedorov: Setting Another New Course.
The description there recounts: "In early 1995, Fedorov created a new party called Forward, Russia! Inspired by the success of Silvio Berlusconi's Forza Italia, Fedorov combined patriotic appeals with a market-based economic agenda. He was virtually the only well-known figure on the "democratic" wing of the Russian political spectrum to support the war in Chechnya that began in late 1994. Fedorov adopted a largely negative campaign strategy [and] Fedorov's sometimes inflammatory language and antics prompted political commentator Pavel Lobkov to dub him "a Zhirinovskii for the intelligentsia, during the 1995 campaign, many analysts placed Forward, Russia! among parties that had a chance of clearing the 5 percent threshold, but it fell short, winning just under 2 percent of the party-list vote [although] Fedorov again won a single-mandate district [..]."
I'm sure the band Forward Russia makes great music, and the political party obviously wasnt a major player, but perhaps it should at least have its own Wikipedia entry? No-itsme 22:42, 31 August 2007 (UTC)
- This Forward Russia begins with an upside down exclaimation point. However, maybe that party is how the band got the name. There may be a disambig page, but it's highly unlikely. Doc Strange 15:05, 18 September 2007 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:Frussia logo.png
Image:Frussia logo.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

carling weekend leeds and reading
at carling weekend leeds they actually played the topman unsigned stage on the thursday night not the radio one stage
Hiatus or whatever they are calling it
They just announced plans to... well, they are not splitting, and they don't want to say the word hiatus, but something is definitely going on. I wouldn't know what to say. Maybe best to wait until there are some concrete details.
There's the band's website http://www.forwardrussia.com, the forum http://forum.forwardrussia.com/viewtopic.php?p=59456, and a drowned in sound article here: http://www.drownedinsound.com/articles/3833518 for anyone who wants sources.
