Through the eyes of Micke

The latest issue of Sweden Rock Magazine has a great flashback story of one night with the band back in 1984, told by the great photographer Micke Johansson and with great unseen footage.

-"I remember that night", says Zinny on the cellphone from Dallas. -"It was Alex´s birthday, and probably the opening night on our fall tour. Micke came out and I think it was one of his first jobs on the road with a band.."

- "Micke was pretty fresh as a photographer. He saw that there was loads champange in the green room so he initiated the whole idea. He got pretty pissed when we sprayed champange on his expensive lenses so I remember saying to him "hey, if you´re gonna be out here you better get used to these sorts of things!" We are good friends and have remained ever since. He´s still taking pictures of us. The campange was actually a gift from Hans Hartwig at POSTER magazine, and we later found out that HE was the one hoping for some raunchy pictures! Boy did he get them .. Anyway we didn´t mind wasting champange. We never drank the stuff. We focused on whiskey."

 -"The "penis cake" .. ah yes. A fan made it for Alex since it was his birthday and seeing the pictures now makes me realize that Micke has been very kind on us. There must be worse pictures in his drawer .. That fake penis on the cake was eventualy replaced with .. uhm .. other things.."
