The album was released on Virgin Records in Japan and Scandinavia 1998 but also independently in the U.S.

and Australia a couple of years later. "Under The Light Of The Moon" off Bubblegun was included on the soundtrack of the romantic comedy Love and Sex starring Jon Favreau and Famke Jensen. For the 2001 album Listen to What the man said: A Tribute to Sir Paul McCartney the Merrymakers recorded a rockin' version of "No More Lonely Nights" and were in excellent company among artists like Neil and Tim Finn from Crowded House, World Party, Matthew Sweet and Peter Buck of R.E.M. Over the last few years the Merrymakers have stood aside for other things that Hellgren/Myhr have been busy doing. Mainly building their studio Monogram in Stockholm and producing bands/artists such as PuffyAmiYumi, Dorian Gray and Yuko Yamaguchi. Currently two of their songs written for PuffyAmiYumi are used in big time TV-commercials in Japan and a third one is set to be the opening theme for the animated manga series called Oh-Edo Rocket. In 2007 the Merrymakers did their first public performances in 7(!) years.
