A lot of punk/powerpop bands emerged from Klippan in the early 80s. Of these, Kriminella gitarrer were really really great. Crap comedy band Torsson are probably the most famous. This one is also supposed to be funny, but the music is good. Anders Åborg of Drömpojkarna were also in the horrendous Aston Reymers Rivaler. Anyway, thank you for keeping this incredibly sweet page and for making these obscure treasures heard. Lots of love.
Anders Åborg has been a member of many other Swedish bands. Some of the more unknown are mentioned here: http://web.comhem.se/staalberg/rockband.htm (it's in Swedish)He is still playing´, his last project is Klarskinn:http://www.rfod.se/fmk/detail.asp?lang=sw&nr=940
Personaly, i think there's more to Torson than the comedic side (I hate "det spelades bättre boll"). Kriminella gitarrer is, of course, outstanding in the Klippan early 80s but I think both "Kommissarie Roy" and "Johnny & Dom Andra" is worth mentioning. And they both sufferd from the conection with Torson and the fact that they took "funny" names. It's just simpel lo-fi rock the way punk sounded before it became a ganre on MTV. /Duke DeMonde
