We’re teaming up with the ever brilliant PNKSLM for some ridiculous fun shows at The Old Blue Last this spring. Next up is the triple threat of Hater, Chemtrails and Terror Watts so we caught up with Sweden’s finest – Hater ahead of the show, having just released their debut LP to much critical acclaim they’re not a band you want to sleep on.

We got to know them a little better ahead of the show.

My favourite film ever is…
Groundhog day. Caroline loves movies that takes place in a day.

The most famous person I’ve met is…
Lukas once waved to Steve Buscemi, apparently he waved back.

The song I hate the most is…
Måns really hates Fireflies by Owl City, Lukas likes it.

The worst job I’ve ever had is…
Lukas and Måns worked at a call center, they held out for two weeks.

If I was in a tribute band it would be…
Adam doesn’t even have to think. It would definitely be in a U2 tribute band as Bono, the lead singer.

My favourite word:
Skirt

If I had a super power I’d want it to be…
Funny that you asked- we all have our favourites from the Fantastic Four. Caroline would like to be “the Thing”- so she can be a rock-star. Måns likes Mr Fantastic, because he’s elastic. Lukas wants to be the invisible woman, really bad. Adam, who is already superhot- would be The Human Tourch.

If I could play a gig anywhere it would be…
The dream has always been to play somewhere in Japan.

I think you should listen to…
Silvester – it’s a really great band from Denmark

If I could see anyone play live it would be…
Caroline says – Elliott Smith
Adam says – David Bowie
Måns says – Neil Young
Lukas says – Bored Nothing

Hater – You Tried
