Klubb Super 8 who released Drra på – En kul grej på väg till Götet has published the bonus material from the DVD for free. Grejen (The Thing) is directed by Hasse Wallman in 1966. In this 17 minutes long movie we have the chance to see Lee Kings play around on the streets in the same childish style as in Drra på, but this time quite charming. Everything accompanied by songs from their repertoire.
Ok, to be honest this is not the best movie ever made, it’s probably not even correct to categorize it as good. But it has some unusual clips with bands like The Lee Kings and Shanes. And the bad acting can actually make you smile for yourself some times. See the movie for free at Voddler. Other bands worth mentioning is Spotnicks, Ola & The Janglers and Jerry Williams & The Violents. Beneath, Lee Kings plays an alternative version of their great song Orient express. Note that the bus is driven by the world champion in professional heavyweight boxing 1959-1960, Ingmar Johansson. And the movie title?
It’s something like Drrag on – a funny thing on it’s the way to Göteborg.

I found this article from the magazine SE # 3, 1966. It’s written by Gits Olsson with title “Will the pop idol still have his work left in the morning?” and tells us the story about when The Lee Kings made a coup on the Swedish chart “Tio i topp” and got 99 procent of the votes. The article is originally in Swedish so please use a translation tool for this article.

Har popidolen jobbet kvar imorgon by Gits Olsson
Nationen skakar av harm och skriver insändare. Det har förövats ett nytt attentat mot Tio i topp!
Tio i topp är melodiradions populäraste program. En lek för ungdom, säjer radion. Dödligt allvar, säjer popindustrins rundnätta direktörer som står och faller med hur ungdomarna röstar på lördagarna. Åker en skiva ur, blir det ingen ozelot till grammofondirektörens hustru denna vintern heller. Continue reading ‘The Lee Kings coup on the Swedish chart’
