The love children of My Bloody Valentine, Sweden's Moonbabies write songs that clatter between sweet pop drones and distorted thwacks. And unlike the many MBV copyists, they manage to make the sound all their own.

Why are you doing this?

That’s simple. I love to write songs, record, and perform. Also you get to know nice people through (your) music, people you never would have talked to if it weren’t for this.

What is the best dream you ever had?
I’ve had some hilarious dreams meeting Homer Simpson in real life.

What question do you hate to be asked and what's the answer?
Q: “Why do you keep a family of dead possums in the closet, Ola?” A: “I call the big one bity”

Describe your most rock n roll experience
Every gig with the Lovely Lads (a garage 60s psychedelic-punk-cover band I’m also in) always makes everyone in the audience ecstatic. The band is a big rock n roll trip.

Who is the coolest person in the band and why?

Carina. She has a great attitude to life in general and has taught me how to deal with uncomfortable situations. She’s cool because everything about her is so natural.

What's the last record you regret buying?

I don’t buy a lot of records. I get tapes of friends and other bands to get me busy. The last album I bought was Yo La Tengo’s And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out and I was truly disappointed. But after the third listening it all fell down to the ground and now I absolutely adore it. It’s my favourite feel good music right now.

How would you like to die?
Hmmm… Chased to death by a big monkey?

Cheers, Ola Frick, Moonbabies
