Despite comprehensive medical attention none of them could permanently regain their memory despite the occasional flashback. It seemed the only way they could find out exactly who they were would be to team up with Rutger Sonofagunn on bass and Ola Drumkitt on drums and set off in search of their past and to perform the catchy songs and preach good fashion sense, style, love and kindness, all of which they felt was lacking these days.
For a while everyone mistook them for the Swedish Supergroup ABBA since they looked, sounded and behaved so much like them, but of course they were not ABBA – they were BJÖRN AGAIN.
Björn Again first heard from ABBA back in 1990 when they received a telegram from Björn Ulvaeus presented to them in snowy Gothenburg while on their first tour of Sweden. It read:
“The best of luck. Anyone who looks like me ought to have a successful career!”
And in February 1999 Benny Andersson stated live on London’s Capital Radio:
“Fans had better make the most out of Björn Again because that’s the closest they are going to get to seeing ABBA. ABBA will never reform!”
Björn Again have gone to become one of the most popular acts in the universe and are currently in their 17th year, having performed over 4000 live shows in over 60 countries world-wide. They are without doubt one of the most entertaining live rock shows to ever grace the stage. DON’T TAKE A CHANCE on anyone else!
BJÖRN AGAIN ARE:
BENNY ANDERWEAR – Keyboards, guitars, vocals and beard
FRIDA LONGSTOKIN – Brown hair, vocals and taunter of Benny
