Electric Boys: "And Them Boys Done Swang"; Video For "Father Popcorn´s Magic Oysters" Available

Swedish funk rockers Electric Boys will release their brand new studio album "And Them Boys Done Swang" on May 27. You can now watch the video for "Father Popcorn´s Magic Oysters" below. Also listen to the new song "My Heart’s Not For Sale" at this location.

Electric Boys was formed as a duo in 1988 in Stockholm, Sweden by Conny Bloom (guitar and vocals) and Andy Christell (bass) and got a hit song right away with the track "All Lips N' Hips" after which the members Franco Santunione (guitar) and Niclas Sigevall (drums) were recruited.

"Funk-O-Metal Carpet Ride" was released internationally. Electric Boys toured tenaciously in Europe and in the U.S. where they were climbing the Billboard list while “All Lips N’ Hips” was set on heavy rotation on MTV.

1992 the follow up album "Groovus Maximus" was released. The album was recorded in the legendary “Beatles studio” Abbey Road in London and the band continued touring mainly in the U.S.A., Great Britain and Sweden.

1994 the album "Freewheelin’" was released and the members decided to dissolve the band soon after with a farewell concert in their hometown Stockholm.
After four years playing with Hanoi Rocks, Conny Bloom and Andy Christell decided to reunite Electric Boys in the beginning of 2009. They released a “Best Of” album in the spring and played at the famous Sweden Rock Festival on June 5th.
