One of my very favorite bands, here are Solna, Sweden's sons of the Chocolate Watch Band and the Cramps, whose frontman Nick Vahlberg I once interviewed (in tiny type) for the I-94 Bar. Now closing in on 30 years as a band, their two perfect rekkids are Outburst from '84 and Sonically Speaking from '91. Wish I could find the damn VHS tape with the show they played at Casino El Camino in Austin during SXSW 2000. I saw them play three shows in two days on borrowed equipment because they were paranoid about bringing instruments through Customs without work permits. Killed every time.
