Biography

Founded just over three decades ago, Backyard Babies is one of those bands you love to watch while downing a few beers at a sun-drenched summer festival. These guys are credited with popularising the sleaze rock genre in Scandinavia and if you’re into glam rock bands like Hanoi Rocks you’ll find much to love here. Their sixth, self-titled album topped the Swedish charts in its first week of release and they were a staple of the live hard rock scene when they surprised everyone by taking a break. The indefinite hiatus lasted five years but 2015’s ‘Four by Four’ finally picked up where they left off. Straightforward rock songs with a whiff of punk, no deeper meanings but just straight-up, low-down, dirt cheap rock. (#GMM18)
