“returning after a five year hiatus … doing what they do best – kick ass, straight-up rock ‘n’ roll songs, flecked with punk attitude and sleaze rock swagger” (Vive Le Rock).

Backyard Babies returned to the rock scenes after a five years hiatus in 2015, releasing the critically acclaimed album “Four By Four”, via GAIN Music Entertainment.

Formed in 1989 the line-up of the band has never changed, and neither has the collective desire to claim a key and colorful chapter in the annals of rock ‘n’ roll. Since 1989 Backyard Babies have released seven studio albums and won two Swedish Grammys.

Backyard Babies are ready to hit the UK roads once more. The band will join Black Star Riders on a full regional tour in March 2017.

Backyard Babies will bring to life on stage their distinctive sound that blends sleaze rock with nuances of punk. Backyard Babies delivers a live performance that never disappoints!

Backyard Babies are Peder Carlsson, Johan Blomquist, Dregen and Nicke Borg.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
