Back in the early to mid 90’s, Sundays at midnight was sacred hours for me – and many, many more lovers of hard rock and metal. Because Sundays at midnight was Headbanger’s Ball time and that was not be missed. I clearly remember one night back in 1994 when the V.J., the awesome Vanessa Warwick introduced us to a new Swedish band called Backyard Babies. Now, I’m Swedish and a music nerd, but I had never ever heard of that band. Now, it must be stated that back in the 80’s / 90’s, we Swedes weren’t spoiled with hard rock bands getting international features on rock shows and such, so no matter what your musical tastes were like, it was always cool that a Swedish band getting exposure. Sure, videos by Swedish bands was on Headbanger’s Ball every now and then, but it was always so cool when a Swedish band got to be interviewed and they got more air than just a video here and there. That was my first impression with Backyard Babies.
