Last time I interviewed these two guys from the Swedish town of Gävle, their expectations on their forthcoming gig at Sticky fingers in Gothenburg where great, so was their mood. This year, they also got the price for "Best newcomer" of the year at the Swedish radio channel P3's show called Frispel, which the fans of electronic music in Sweden greeted with their arms open. With much energy, the band preformed this night at SAMA 2006 on the same basis as before, body, sweat and Jonathan Löfstedt (singer) running wild on the microphone.

Once again, welcome to Gothenburg guys!
Jonathan: - "Thank you very much; it is really great to see the Gothenburg audience once again."

What are your reflections of tonight's gig?
Jonathan: - "Well, the audience has a good response and the stage where quite okay."
Gustav: - "I agree, the audience really kicked ass during our play but I strongly disagree on the stage, it where quite a distance between us and the crowd."

Has your album 'So Seelisch, So Schön!' lived up to your expectations?
Jonathan: - "Without doubt, even more! So far, about 500-1000 copies has been sold and the limited edition CD is since a long time ago sold out."
Gustav: - "It is by this time that you are starting to notice that people are actually singing at the concerts, they are beginning to know our lyrics. Now when our CD has been out for a while, more people are starting to recognise us and that is very good."

What is your next record going to be like?
Jonathan: - "Of course, we are going to have the same self distance as before, side by side with a new fresh sound after years of testing. You can trust us that the forthcoming album is going to be as good as 'So Seelisch, So Schön!'."
Gustav: - "The newly released record was really more of a "Best of" album, with new recordings of old songs. The next album is going to have a new sound although."

How do you react on comments like; "You guys are nothing more than simple copies of DAF"?
Jonathan: - "Well, DAF is a very little part of what we actually do. Sure, we have them as great influences but the only one of our songs that sounds like them are "In meinem griff"." Gustav: - "To say like that, is really to make things easy for yourself."

On the last interview we did, you said that you wanted back the trams in Gävle, is that still correct?
Jonathan: - "Haha, I don''t really know that. The personally goal for me is to have the same athletic body as Arnold Schwarzenegger."
