The Legends

Multi-instrumentalist Johan Angergard (b. 22 March 1974, Ängelholm, Scania, Sweden) was a founding member of the twee Swedish indie quartet Acid House Kings in 1991, but his quest for perfect pop continued in January 2003 when he put together a nine-piece band called the Legends. After only a matter of weeks they had supported fellow Swedes the Radio Dept. in Stockholm, crystallizing the raw, fun and direct approach to music making that Angergard had longed to put into practice. Over the next three years as many as 25 people would come and go as members of the Legends’ live set up, but in the studio the band remained a one-man project. Early reviewers displayed frustration at the lack of biographical information available, serving to consolidate the air of mystery around the project. 2003’s Up Against The Legends was an impressive debut that took influence from UK mavericks Television Personalities, placing Dan Treacy’s skewed pop sensibility onto a template of Motown Records grooves and C86 vulnerability. Tracks such as ‘There And Back Again’, ‘Make It All Right’ and ‘The Kids Just Wanna Have Fun’ featured irresistible and immediate choruses, while every one of the 12 tracks contained nuances that rewarded with repeated listening.

The 2005 follow-up, Public Radio, was seemingly an attempt to sabotage this winning formula. Only a handful of the songs that comprised this album contained a passage that resembled a chorus, while the lead vocals were buried in masking effects and pushed deeper into the mix. ‘Hide Away’ recalled stone-faced Danes the Raveonettes, while ‘He Knows The Sun’ sounded like an unlikely collaboration between Air and the Cure. The resigned vocal style was still present on 2006’s Facts And Figures, but the brash and fizzing guitars of previous releases were rejected in favour of the precision of New Order and Pet Shop Boys -influenced electronic music. In an attempt to keep his spirit of creativity alive, Angergard had to be commended for throwing himself into a genre of which he knew little.

it's just droning noise and has no reason to exist

I wish people would learn what 'ripoff' actually meant. And then stop giving a f**k and just enjoy the music. The only reason people would care about ripoffs is if they cared more about the financial success of another band.

Look - the Cure's A Forest is a classic and this song obviously pays homage to it. It's not such a bad thing.

Today IS a ripoff of The Cure. Its okay to say it. I'm surprised they werent sued.

Awesome band and sound. They have a sound like The Cure and Joy Division, but the lead singer's voice sounds a little like Tears For Fears. Nontheless awesome band. I like!!!

I really thought New Order as well! Very cool sound.

Thought I was gonna hear a new version of "A Forest" also. Good stuff anyway. I'm not thinking along the lines of rip off . . . just another good song that reminds me of another song that is good. :-)

Heard some of "Public Radio". The New Order, Bernard Sumner guitar influence is definitely there. The vocal style sounds more like Ben Gibbard from Death Cab for Cutie though. Cool band - not a rip off, but certainly influenced.

Wow, like some others I thought this was a Cure re-mix or something. When I was in highschool my dad bought a keyboard that had a sequencer. I did my share of trying to replicate "A Forest." These guys did a much better job however.

very cool vibe - reminds me of the 80s shoe gazing sound.

It's good, but Jesus. c'mon.... such a rip of A Forest from The Cure's 'Faith' album.

I thought this was The Cure from the Faith album before I looked at the page. Eerily similar

Pandora needs to fix this... only interested in the 60's Kinks-style band

Sounds like BAD Swedish pop. Yuck.

High Towers is apparently an anthology of a psychedelic 60s era band named The Legends. Up Against The Legends and Public Radio are both from an indie rock/pop band of the modern era named The Legends. They're two different bands.

definite new order sound in there on the guitar

yea, they sound pretty nice. They came up on my Libertines radio.

what the hell? who ARE these guys? they rock, but "High Towers" sorta sounds different than the rest

WHAT ERA ARE THESE GUYS FROM?

I don't think the band with "High Towers" album should be included among the selected discography. Is it another group/band with the same name?

SOUNDS LIKE "THE CURE" ON STEROIDS! GOOD STUFF! :-)
