The band was successful, rated in Oslo as the best Nordic pop group of 1965. The band recorded three singles, of covers and original compositions penned by guitar player Thomas Frisk. Over the years they changed members and styles. In 1968 Tomas Eriksson became the bands bassist. In 1970 the name was shortened to “San Michael’s”.
At this time they had started to write songs with Swedish lyrics. Later this year two of the members left the band and the remaining musicians continued playing as a trio forming their own style built around Hammond organ, bass and drums. They continued to write new songs in Swedish but they also played covers in their own characteristic arrangements in combination with longer jam-sessions. In 1971 the band recorded an eponymous LP with original material only. During the summer of 1971 the band toured with “Emile Ford”. For this tour they needed a temporary guitar player and they asked Nane Kvillsäter to join them.
During the spring of 1972 Nane was invited to be a permanent member of the band. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
