This post is for those who have ears for the Swedish language. In 1995 the radio journalist Bengt Eriksson made a documentary about The Friends covering the bands history and in many ways sad fate. Here we can hear lead vocalist Anders T Peedu, the drummer Thomas “Tolvan” Skogsberg, the mother to the Skogsberg brothers, manager Silas Bäckström and producer Bill Öhrström giving their perspective about the band. It’s a well spent hour which mixes interviews with music and documentary recordings. For example a clip from the famous performance at Hylands Hörna in Swedish television where the host asks questions about the drummer Thomas’ young age and long hair. Det passerade och rann förbi was originally broadcasted November 19, 1995.
