Biography

Stry Terrarie is a Swedish musician, songwriter and singer. He’s been member of some of the biggest and most important Swedish bands ever, Garbochock, Ebba Grön and Imperiet

Stry was born in Ängelholm as Anders Sjöholm in 1957. In 1963, when he was 6 years old, his family moved to Liberia in western Africa, where his father had gotten a job working for SIDA, Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency. They moved back to Sweden in 1966.

In the early 1970s, Stry’s interest in music grew rapidly. He bought his first guitar and played in a small band called Riot.

In the summer of 1976, Stry went to London with his girlfriend at the time. There he saw the Sex Pistols. When he returned to Sweden, inspired by the Sex Pistols, he formed the punk rock band Kriminella Gitarrer (Criminal Guitars). They recorded a couple of songs and received some attention.

At this time Stry was conscripted to do military service, and after that he moved to Malmö City where he formed the band Besökarna (the Visitors). The band got some attention, but in 1979 Stry formed the band Garbochock which was much more successful. In the spring of 1980, Garbochock’s first and only album was released.

Soon after this, Stry was invited to move to Stockholm and joined the punk rock band Ebba Grön, which was the most famous and successful Swedish rock band at the time. Stry took his notebook with 100 songs and joined Ebba Grön. He would have a great influence on the band’s third and last album, simply named Ebba Grön. He had already written a song called Stockholms pärlor (Stockholm’s Pearls) for Ebba Gröns second album Kärlek och uppror.
