The Cardigans

This group is born in 1992 in Jönköping (Sweden) and is composed by Peter Svensson (guitarist), Magnus Sveningsson (bassist), Nina Persson (song), Lars-Olof Johansson (keyboard) and Bengt Lagerberg (drummer). They moved all together in 93 in a small apartment and begann to record demo. The single “Rise & Shine” became a hit on swedish radio in 94 and they made a european tour just befor to record a second album.
I heard about them when I was little with the song “lovefool” (1997) and also with “my favorite game” (1998). I´m right now listening to Grand turismo (1998) and Long gone before daylight (2003) and I find the second one more popy than the first, but to different moods, different musics :)
