The Legends was formed in January
2003 and the week after a gig was booked, supporting The Radio
Dept. in Stockholm. As the band basically lacked songs and members
the first two weeks were spent writing songs and gathering friends
who could play, or wanted to play, in the band.
According to The Legends the band play music
that can't be placed in a genre, still they're happy to agree
on Television Personalities, Comet Gain, Motown and C-86 as inspiration.
"When they write their best uptempo
songs, time stands still. Handclap, sing-a-long choruses and clattering
guitars, soul" says The Cricket. We agree!
The Legends are nine persons who play drums,
guitars, tambourine, organ, bass and sings. Many of the members
have never played their instruments before which just adds excitement
to the short and intensive gigs.
