Johnny, as his real name is, started his career back in 1983 as the bass player of D.F.K. a local punk band from Märsta, Sweden.
Over the years he played with several different bands, in different music styles, always as the bass player, until he in 1992 had to take on the vocals as well. In 1995 he reunited himself back to the Swedish punk scene with the band “Dr. Krall”.
Dr. Krall did a few gigs, but didn’t really make the grade. The band had two different settings and made two demo tapes. One with each setting of the band. In 1997 the band split up and Johnny and his fellow guitarist from the band “Lars Ohlin” joined forces and started a new band together, continuing what they had started. This new band was named “blåh” (Translation: Blue, but with an H at the end).
blåh toured around and made a few pretty good shows, but as with most bands, they didn’t reach “up there”.
After the CD-maxi “Kalas” (Released in 1998), they made a mini album in 2000 which was never released. In 2001, with the new drummer, they went into the studio to record their debut album “blåh´s världar och växtvärk”, but due to sound problems, the album had to be re produced twice but failed to give the boys the sound they wanted. With this negative impact, and the other guitarist leaving the band, it took but four months before blåh gave in in September 2001. Johnny and the drummer “Hasse Öhman” got a hold of the old drummer from Dr. Krall and started a new band together. They named themselves “Formalin”. But that is another story.
