Skånske Arne & Jonny Spöge“It started as a small annoyance over the mess in the local supermarket. Speaking on the phone we agreed it was better to write a pop song about the situation rather than burning the shop down. And so we did.”

That’s how Skånske Arne & Jonny Spöge tell us the story about how they started. The influences come from the so called “Klippan-popen” with bands like Torsson, Kommisarie Roy and Noise. They also mention Wilmer X and I feel that there’s also an obvious link to Kal P. Dal.

As you have read in the introduction it’s also about lyrics with social criticism, even if they have promised songs where they don’t complain about anything. In their first official release, “Gula lådan” (“The yellow box”), they tell us about “a serious problem, which in the long run threatens to bring down our entire civilization”, i.e. the lack of yellow boxes nowadays around Sweden. (a note for international readers: yellow box=letter box) As they state: “Important documents run the risk of not arriving to their destination because of the lack of letter boxes!”

Enjoy the song here below, and also a brilliant music video they released recently. You can meet the duo at their site.
