-Yeah,we came together 4-5 years ago and that was a time when we only drank beer in a undergoriundtunnel in Rimbo. We was bored of that and we came up witht he good idea of starting a band. From the begin we was five member but one of us decided to sport instead of being in abnd, Two of our songs on "The Saga begins" is dedicated to him, Manne Magnusson. He died tragically in a car accident two years ago. He is missed by many people. We continue to play and we came in contact with an american who wanted to do our band. He tokk Carl Templat to us and he recorded us and now weīre on Building 13 which is the result after the split of TKO and Chapter 11.
Please tell me a little about every member,
age ,family and so on??
-Jakob, aka Lord Jake, aka King Jake, aka Judge Jake, is 20 years and he likes much football(hammarby) , aointof guiness now and then or only to take it easy with the lads. Which means football and another pint of guiness. He lives with his mother and his not so liked borther. He is known as the man with the orange kånkelbär(ask him with a beer some time so can you maybe get out some more) Otherwise thereīs no big things about him. Maybe then ,as he would say himself: " I tell you, this body is a curse" then he is thinking he is to handsome and that he has a very fine body. Which makes girls coming around him in masses. Itīs annoying,sometimes.
Robert, aka Righteous Robert, aka Bootboy Bob, alias Boosbap, is also 20 years and he is interested by football and he can take a pint of guines with Jake and he works in an electronicfabric and he is not afraid of the thought to make a real hit on his guitar. He lives, as the traitor he is, not in Rimbo anymore, and he has moved to Norrtälje ,to come closer to his work.
The biggest problem with Robert is the fact that he is not a metre high but through is knwoledge of illusions he can do so the world canīt see his height.....but thatīs was back then..
Christofer, aka Chris da' Rockdocta', aka Chriffie, aka Gibson Chris,he is like
the other ones, 20 years old and he comes to the south of Stockholm to see a
match ,take a pint with Jake and Bob, and he can have time to meet his
girlfriend also. He sits on the toilet at home and do solos which he later
donīt remember. He have to improvise a new solo on our rehersals which he īs
doing very well. His dreams is to get a job on Arlanda when he is very much
interested of putting on luggage on planes. A very big problem in Christoffers
life is the size of his penis, which he havenīt any control on either and it
seems like people always go on it when itīs lying on the floor. he havenīt
understand the importness in this case.
Freddie, aka Sluggo, aka fittfreppa, aka Freddie the Head, 20 years, lives in his new house on the hill with his father and girlfriend. He doesnīt agree with the other guys about football and that Swedens best footballteam is spelled H-A-M-M-A-R-B-Y, and he is saying that a peculiar thing A-I-K, or something like that is the thing. The other guys doesnīt listen so much about it. Otherwise he plays floorball or is with his girlfriend. But sometimes he comes to the pub to take a beer with the guys but he isnīt so hard as the other ones and heīs ordering a Budweiser or something like that. In the last years we have noticed a christianty in his life. We can notice it in the fact that he is eating five o clock even if weīre going to rehearsal that time, heīs having his girlfriend with us everywhere ,yeah itīs christian in way.
How did you get a contract with TKO/Chapter 11,
wasnīt it any label in Sweden which was interested?
-Thereīs no good labels in Sweden.Except Sidekicks maybe but they wasnīt interested so they canīt be so good. Carl Templar said that TKO/Chapter 11 was good and they was really big so it was no big deal about it.
You look like skinheads but I have
understood that youīre the old type of skinheads, do you have to defend your

We play msuic for all oi-ers out there and we donīt care about the length on the hair. So please buy the record, and all you longhaired ones out there, donīt be afraid. We must defend the fact that we(Jake and Bob) as skinheads not haver any official opinions. Our opinions have nothing with our lives as skinhead to do. People have a little difficulty to understand that.

You sing about Expedition Robinson but you
like,eh who wins this year, itīs maybe difficult and who donīt you want to see
as a winner?,
-That question isnīt so difficult to answer. Buba must win or maybe the macho-truk. Hildeggard cannot win . We saw in the paper that sheīs almost favourite to win. Itīs a shame Sweden. We adore Robinson and we can sacrifice our lifes to let it go on. On next release Robinsoon Night Part II is going to be on it.
