Mando Diao Street Team [
February 28th, 2010 @ 10:16pm

Sheepcats Cologne – meet the Mando Diao Street Team!

You all know Mando Diao, THE Swedish rock band of the past few years. You all know their hits "Sheepdog", "Down In The Past", "Long Before Rock'n'Roll" and "Dance With Somebody", just to mention a few. Mando Diao always seems to be present, be it with a new single, a new album or just their name on a poster, a sticker on a lamp post, a flyer in a club… Why? Well, this is our story.

It all started in spring 2008 and it was harmless enough. Every band has a website nowadays so I began to check the updates on www.mandodiao.com every now and then. A community was about to start and there were ideas about missions for the fans, so that they could help the band. A nice idea. I liked it so I started to write my own ideas on the website. And suddenly I was contaced by Headquarter – the busy ones from Mando Diao's management Flagstone who run the Mando Diao homepage.

It turned out they liked my ideas and we talked about creating a Street Team for the band. Came September 2008 and I met "Headquarter" Katrine and Christiane, a nice girl and good friend by now from Stuttgart, for the first time in Mando Diao's hotel in Bonn. The band was there to play a gig supporting a campaign called "Für besseres Klima", but the three of us started the day with four and a half hours talking about the Street Team. We wanted to create a worldwide community of Mando Diao fans who would work together to help to promote the band. But it was not meant to be just work: we wanted people to have fun and find new friends who like the band as much as we do.

When we were finished we attended a Meet&Greet with the band and met a few fans for the first time who would become the first members of the Street Team in Cologne. They had already finished their first mission: promoting the concert in Bonn by handing out flyers and putting up posters. It was so nice to meet other Mando Diao fans and – of course – to meet the band itself: Björn, Gustaf, Samuel, CJ and Mats were really, really nice and liked the idea of the Street Team. And after that we were even allowed to watch the gig from the side of the stage.
After Bonn the concept of the Street Team really started. And in November the first members of our part of the Street Team – we call it "Special Unit" – met for a photo shooting in front of the Cathedral in Cologne. We sent the picture of our Unit to Sweden – and got rewarded with nice prints of it, signed by the band.

Since then our Unit became very busy: we promoted their new album "Give Me Fire", handed out flyers, spread posters all over the city, promoted their concerts, put stickers on every lamp posts, bus stops and toilet doors, talked to other fans in front of venues to let them know about the Street Team, dressed up as the band for competitions, and wrote tons of stuff about the band on the internet.

And it's not only us, the "Sheepcats" in Cologne: there are 107 other Special Units from Chile to Japan, from Sweden to Greece – everyone is working hard and with lots of fun to help our favourite band. And we would like to thank Mando Diao for always be there for us, no matter how tired they might be while being on tour, they always have time to talk to us. We are even allowed to watch their soundchecks and sometimes we get invited to special things like TV or radio shows.

Why am I writing all this? Because I want YOU to join our gang! Ever wanted to meet up with a very special gang of Mando Diao fans? Talk with them about the band? Do missions together? Join meetings with a lot of fun, food, craziness, music and new ideas? Find new friends who like the band?

Then don't hesitate – meet us at www.mandodiao.com and help us spread the word about Swedens' finest:

Mando Diao in U_Mag [

There are some very nice pictures and an interview with Björn and Gustaf in the new U_Mag magazine (Germany).

Here are my scans, I hope it's big enough to read the text, but it's even worse when I use thumbnails.
