Comments
Formed in Stockholm as a cover band, they soon, also due to their energetic live shows and in spite of their ugly sleeves, became Swedens most successful mid-1960s act performing in English. From 1966 on, they increasingly recorded self-written songs, later also in Swedish.
Outside the Nordic countries the band is best known as a launching point for the keyboard player and composer Benny Andersson (of ABBA fame).
