Backfish

Formed back in 1993 under the name Backfish Blue, Kathrine Bergström (vocals, guitar), Anna Wallmark (bass), Nina Åkerlund (drums) and Linda Åkerlund (guitar and vocals) just wanted to write a catchy pop song here and there while killing tome time in their native Sweden. But by 1994, after a demo release and a short tour of their home country, a label bidding war took place resulting that we came up with the best offer and plans, as well as the fact we come from the same city.

After a few changes in the line up they recorded, with producer Ken Springfellow, their debut album “It’s Emily’s”. After that they went on tour, both within Sweden as well as in Germany. A little later it was time for the six track “Fashion Mania” EP to be released, probably their most popular release ever here in Sweden.

Unfortunately they brooke up much to early and after this Fashion Man EP they only come up with a nice single called “How to be a friend”.
