A majority of all rock band biographies tell the tale of the young rebel escaping from the narrow minded small town – moves to the city where he finally feels at home and makes it. This story could have been quite similar. If only things had gone according to plan…
When Charlie was 18, he and two of his best friends escaped Ljusdal for Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. They had a plan. Being the losers they thought they were, they would move to the city and re-invent themselves by forming the most bad ass rock ‘n’ roll band the world had ever seen after their biggest idols Aerosmith and Guns ‘N’ Roses.
But like most teenage dreams goes – their band eventually split up, they went separate ways and their brotherhood faded – while finding new friends and girlfriends in the Stockholm rock scene and moving on with their lives. Charlie became a pretty successful artist, illustrating record sleeves, posters and merch for various rock bands. The first time he met guitarist Mats Olsson and drummer Patrik Jansson was actually at a record company meeting with Wild Kingdom/Sound Pollution, where they discussed the cover for Mats & Patriks previous band Maryslims next album. ”It’s kinda funny, looking back, that I didn’t like Mats at all that first time. I found him quite obnoxious to tell you the truth” Charlie laughs at the memory.
