Biography

Stockholm, Sweden (2003 – present)

There are at least 3 groups called the Legends

1) In 2003 The Legends masqueraded as a nine-piece pop orchestra playing local gigs in Stockholm, Sweden. That was the official story, anyway.

The truth is that all 4 albums: Up Against The Legends, Public Radio, Facts And Figures and Over & Over were recorded, written, played and produced by arranger, studio wizard and one-man band Johan Angergård (of Acid House Kings & Club 8 fame), who explains, “When I start recording an album I have a very clear idea of what I want to do, and by doing everything myself the album comes out exactly the way I want it to. Involving other people might only blur the vision.”

All of the band’s work is released on popular Swedish indie pop label, Labrador.

2) The Legends, Milwaukee, WI, United States, 62-66 Pop/Rock

3) The Legends, Holland, MI, United State 66-67 Garage Rock

    Over and Over es genial. Sucio y con ese toque estridente a lo My Bloody Valentine. Tiene verdaderos himnos indie pop. Me encanta lo melódico de las composiciones y como canta Angergard. Fue un gran descubrimiento.

    weird, public radio is the one i like the least. It has some nice songs like he knows the sun, sure, but overall, as an album, it feels weak, with songs that are too short. I guess it depends on your musical background and shit. My favourite is up against the legends, tho my favourite song is "darling" from facts and figures

    Extremely underrated. "Public radio" is one of my favorite album ever, love it so much. Hope they'll get more credit for their work in the future...

    It's too soon to ask for a new album? He's working with AHK, and Club 8 just released their album, so i guess it is. But i want one

    He Knows the Sun has been stuck in my head for about three weeks. And I'm loving it.
