How did you come up with the idea?
- "Hard question. How do you really come up with the idea that you want to make music? Rudi and I both grew up around music. Rudi's parents were very open-minded when it came to different music styles, his dad used to play symphony-rock. We were always aloud to go over to them and play our Bowie records as loud as we wanted. To start a band felt very obvious for us."

How long do you think your concept is going to last?
- "Hard to say. There're trends in all music styles and our sound might not feel that fresh in a couple of years. We'll renew ourselves time to time. Who knows, maybe our next album turns out to be all-acoustic-synth record?"

Recently you played at SAMA festival in Gothenburg. Was this your biggest gig so far and how did that feel?
- "Maybe not the biggest but probably the most important. It was really nice to meet colleges from our old hometown. We were pretty nervous since we were the opening act, but after awhile it just felt good. Our goal was to make people dance and give them a good start for the evening and I think we accomplished it."

How was it to be nominated? Would you've been worthy winners?
- "It was fun to be nominated. Not so strange considering the success we had within this last year. But we weren't sad because we didn't win."

The SAMA gig was the closure for your Sweden tour, what happens now?
- "Actually, we have some gigs scheduled over the country this summer, such as Arvika Festival. Other then that lot's of writing and of course the have-to trip to Greece with the band, where we get our inspiration, from the sea and the local food."

How did you come up with the idea to make an unofficial football World Championship song? And had you expected that the song was going to be as big as it got and get such ratings?
- "That felt natural since everyone in the band are into sports. Everyone else was making football-songs so we thought, "Why should we be any worse?" But we weren't expecting it to get so big."

Have you gotten any success outside Sweden?
- "We're actually getting some interest from Germany and we got a gig in Berlin later this fall."

Who writes the lyrics in the band? Do you share the writing or does anyone do more jobs then the rest?
- "We share for the most of the time. But if anyone got an idea for a song, it is easiest that he writes the lyrics for that."

Is there a better line then "Wir juxen mit trazan und schlagen pastejen" or are those words the most exceptional then the rest?
- "Why not "my body says yes but my lips say JA?" or "Zusammen wir stoppen das Krieg mit Muzik, zusammen wir arbeit på der samme Fabrik"?

Any last brilliant, ethical words from Tyskarna från Lund?
- "To quote our friends from Brainpool: "Support your local anti-fascist movement!"
