Biography

Stockholm, Sweden (1991 – present)

Acid House Kings, formed in Stockholm, Sweden, 1991 by two brothers Niklas Angergård, Johan Angergård and their friend Joakim Ödlund. With immaculate taste in music stemming from a childhood of Elvis Presley, an almost complete set of Sarah singles and a 100% complete set of The Smiths singles, the band set out to define pop music.

Between 1992 and 2002, inspired by the 10 albums in 10 years from Felt, Acid House Kings released a trilogy of albums with one album released every fifth year. The first, Pop, Look & Listen! (1992) is maybe best left unmentioned. The band rate it 2.4 out of 5. On the second, Advantage Acid House Kings (1997), the aim was to make a The Smiths-for-very-sunny-days sort of album. This sort of succeeded, and the band rate it 3.8 out of 5.

In 2001, the band built their own, now famous, Summersound Studios. Here, Acid House Kings could
spend endless amounts of time to create the more sophisticated third album Mondays are like Tuesdays and Tuesdays are like Wednesdays (2002). Former guest
vocalist and present sister-in-law Julia Lannerheim was introduced as a full time member while Joakim Ödlund never showed up for recordings (his house was too far away from the studio). It’s an easy, breezy, beautiful album and the band rate 4.2 out of 5.

Spurred by the quality of “Mondays…”, Acid House Kings set out to break their own five years between albums record, while still yet again refining the meaning of pop music.
