Mando Diao

Mixing garage rock sneer and Brit-pop sass -- along with a truckload of other influences -- Borlange, Sweden's Mando Diao formed when its members were all still in their teens. The band's germination dates back to 1995, when singer/songwriter/keyboardist Daniel Häglund and singer/songwriter/guitarist Björn Dixgärd were in a band called Butler. Even after that group broke up, the pair continued playing and writing together, eventually bringing bassist Fredrik Nilsson, guitarist Gustaf Noren, and drummer Anton Grahnstrom into their fold; Nilsson and Grahnstrom were replaced by Carl Johan Fogelklou and Samuel Giers. By 1999, they were known as Mando Diao, having taken their name from one of Dixgärd's dreams.

Mando Diao continued to hone their sound, blending pop, mod, soul, R&B, and Brit-pop elements into a style that was quirky yet timeless. In 2002 they released their first EP, Motown Blood, through the Majesty and Capitol imprints; the acclaim for the EP and the similarities in their sound to the Strokes and the Hives raised Mando Diao's profile considerably, and the band went on tours of Sweden with the Hellacopters and Kent. Later that year they released the singles Mr. Moon and The Band to stoke anticipation for their full-length debut album, Bring 'Em In, which was largely recorded in their basement practice space. The following year, Mute Records released Bring 'Em In in the United States.

The sophomore effort Hurricane Bar was released in the band's native Sweden in 2004; a stateside release followed in 2005, and Ode to Ochrasy was issued the next year. While touring in support of the album, Mando Diao found time to record their fourth studio effort, Never Seen the Light of Day. The album was released internationally in late 2007, coinciding with a solo tour by Björn Dixgärd. Two years later, the album Give Me Fire -- which featured percussion-heavy production by the Salazar Brothers -- arrived, debuting at the top of the charts in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland and entering the Swedish charts at number two. In 2010, a deluxe version of the album was released, along with an MTV Unplugged album. Give Me Fire was released in the U.S. in mid-2011. ~ Heather Phares

I Love, love, love Mando Diao!!! I got into them shortly before they split. I got in at the time of Hurricane Bar, which is my Fav., but I also love Ode To Ochrasy & got Aelita, too, & like it, just not as much. They're one of the firsts I know of to really experiment with each successive lp. They Should Still Be....they'r e among the Very Best who I think could've gone the distance! I suspect Gustaf Noren & Bjorn Dixgard wanted to go in different creative directions.. . t h e public's loss :(

pandora doesn't have their new album and im interested in their song "The Shining" because the trumpet part is so familiar.

This band rocks. Be sure to check out their new album, "Give Me Fire!". With vocals remeniscent of Eric Burdon and a unique sound that is tough to explain in words. Possibly upbeat Procal Harum with a touch of punkish garage rock. Either way their new album is something I won't stop listening to anytime soon.

They're awesome but wow, they went from raw garage rock to a slightly edgier Belle & Sebastian.

On "Song For Aberdeen" he sounds like Bob Dylan on a little bit of speed.
