RAZORCAKE, the first and maybe the only official non-profit DIY punk rock
fanzine in America, really like our new album “You must be joking!” Check out
this review: ZOOPARTY: You Must Be Joking: CD Another album of tasty, driving
punk rock from these Swedes. At times sounding like the Damned with a bit more
“street” added, they dish up some catchy tunes with “old school” tinges and none
of the mothballs. Like last time, OG punker pals Glen Matlock and Brian James
provide the occasional guitar part, adding a bit of flair to the fist-pumpin’ anthems
presented here. –Jimmy Alvarado (Devil)

In april 2008 Zooparty played the classic 100 club in London, UK, with the
Sex Pistols Experience. It was they first time we played in England, and
the first time we played outside Sweden. Now the sad news has reached
us that they planning to close 100 club before the end of the year.
Owner Jeff Horton says to Alt press that the cost of keeping the club open
has become too much. Originally called Mack's, the club started hosting
live music in 1942 and went on to host jazz legends Louis Armstrong,
Benny Goodman and Ray Ellington among others. Promoter Ron Watts
introduced "Rock Special" nights during the mid-'70s which helped usher
in the U.K.'s prominent punk scene by introducing the Sex Pistols, the Clash,
the Damned and countless more. Glen Matlock, from Sex Pistols who played
with and produced Zooparty, will play the 100 Club October 5. More info on

American music webzine Peacedogman has reviewed our new album
"Re-Fuse"and they really, really like what they hear. "This is what
pop-punk in this dayand age should sound like" and they call it a
"killer punk album that never wears out". They also say that now when
Jay Reatard sadly has passed away Zoopartys Erik Pettersson is
gonna take over. Thanks a lot!!!! We really appreciate it!!!
Read it here: http://www.peacedogman.com/reviews/071010zoo.htm
or here:

· ZOOPARTY - "Re-Fuse", 2010 (Acme) · Classic pop-punk retooled.

Now that JAY REATARD has milked the mortal coil it appears that
ZOOPARTY vocalist/guitarist Erik Petterson is gonna take over.
While sonically “Re-Fuse” takes slightly less chances on production
than say Jay’s “Blood Visions”, the classic sound is there with the
quality songwriting and lyrics to go with it. This is definitely more
SEX PISTOLS than WIRE and in fact Glen Matlock plays guitar
the way you would expect Steve Jones to on half the tunes here.
This is what pop-punk in this day and age should sound like. In an
abated era when Billy Joe GREEN DAY wears guyliner and people
are getting pumped up on account of a BLINK 182 reunion, an anathema
like ZOOPARTY has to come along and remind everyone what time it
really is. Cheesy they are definitely not. It ain’t in their vocabulary.
Just about every song on this disc is a keeper and repeated listens are
as easy as beer thirty (for yours truly that is). “Bring The Bored”,
“General Cutter”, “The Nevers”, “We Have The Right to Know What’s
Wrong”, “Die” and other greats round out a killer punk album that
never wears out its welcome.

2010-08-04

Zooparty is ready for the Rebellion!! As we told you before we will play

The song "Anymore" was played last sunday on "No Escape" on Radio 666
in France, one of Zoopartys favourites. "Anymore" is the second song Zooparty
wrote, rehearsed and recorded. (The first of them all was "Smile") and was
included on the very first record the "Smile- EP" which included "Smile"
and the B-sides "Anymore" and "Is this all we need?". Brian James from
the Damned played guitar on all three of them and Glen Matlock from
Sex Pistols produced them, played guitar on them and mixed them together
with Erik. And remember: When these songs were recorded the band had
existed for two months and was still unnamed. Excellent choice to play that
one, "No Escape"!!! It brought back a lot of memorys - and it´s an fucking
excellent song! If you want your own copy of the "Smile" CD three song EP
it´s just 3 euro + postage. Send us an e-mail at myspace or at
zoo-party@hotmail.com and we sort things out. "No Escape" has also played:

* "Raised on boredom, "Laying low is not what we do", "The Nevers",
"Criminals police the criminals", "General Cutter", "Die", "Neat Freak"
and "Bring the Bored" twice, "We have the right to know what´s wrong"
twice and "C´Mon" twice!!!! All from our new album "Re-Fuse"!!

Big Cheese Magazine, one of the biggest punk/rock magazines in the UK -
and the world -has posted a review of Zoopartys new album "Re-Fuse".
And they really like what they hear:

ZOOPARTY RE-FUSE (Acme)
Swedish punks with swish songs 4/5
Swedish outfit Zooparty's debut 2007 album 'You Are Here' was justly well
received, and with 'Re-Fuse' they follow it up in fine style. Again they are
joined by illustrious personages Glen Matlock and Brian James on guitars,
and again Zooparty have comeup with a collection of bouncy, tuneful, smoothly
produced '77-style punk rock songs. The staccato guitars on 'Laying Low Is
Not What We Do' immediately catch the ear,while the Brian James-produced
'Die' is a little more rough 'n' ready than most,but none the worse for that.
Shane Baldwin

Just came back from a great trip to the UK playing two excellent shows.
We started at the Mill in Mansfield on friday night celebrating Nottingham
Punk Clubs 3rd Birthday Bash together with Septic Psychos, Rat Attack,
The Nerks and Drongos for Europe. Great night and a great crowd.
We really enjoyed ourselfs and it was great to see Lenny again, and meet
some new friends. Special thanks to Luke in The Nerks, Rich in
The Septic Psychos and all others who let us use their gear.
And to the Drongos for Europe for dedicate a song to us. Back on the road after
that and back in London at 5 in the morning. Then Erik went up at 8 to get
breakfast with Glen Matlock. It was good to see him again. Glen has a lot of
things coming up including an Australian tour with Robert Gordon and a brand
new album called "Born Running". Then the whole band went to the Bridgehouse 2
in London to support the Members together with The Fuze and our friends in
Wonk Unit. As you may rememeber Wonk Unit was the band Zooparty toured
the UK with in november last year. It was great to see Alex and Tommy again
and meet their new drummer Adam. Wonk Unit is back in the studio working on
their new album together with Duncan from Snuff and Toy Dolls (just to mention a few).
The Members closed the night with great set of songs including some new from
their upcoming album. Then on sunday the flight went back to Sweden.
Thanks to all the people who helped us during the weekend. We really appreciate it.
And thanks all of you who came down to see us, and bought our records.
And an extra special thanks to Lenny and Per Etzell who made all this possible.
You´re the best! Cheers!

Suburban Voice On-Line, the on-line page for american Suburban Voice fanzine,
has posted a review of Zoopartys new album Re-Fuse. And they really like what
they hear:

ZOOPARTY-Re-Fuse (ACME, CD) The term '77-inspired punk is often bandied
about, including by your faithful scribe, but what does it really mean? Ramones?
Sure... but going across the pond, it can also encompass such bands as the Boys,
Lurkers and, of course, Pistols. Well, Zooparty conjure up those bands on their
latest and, just to reinforce things, bring along some heavy-hitters for "Re-Fuse."
Glen Matlock from the Pistols/Rich Kids and Brian James from the Damned are
all over this record, contributing some tasteful guitar scorch, Thunders toss-offs
and the like. Well-tread rockin' punk but damn if it doesn't do the trick with the
songs' formidable hook-craft. Every buzzin' guitar line and harmonious backing
vocal perfectly in place for a rousing good time. (PO Box 441, Dracut, MA 01826, www.acmerecords.net)

Thanks a lot!!!! You can check it out here: http://subvox.blogspot.com/

Another great review of our new album "Re-Fuse". This one´s from american
magazine Razorcake. Cheers! We really appreciate it!
ZOO PARTY: Re-Fuse: CD New records featuring work, especially guest work,
by old punk luminaries can be dicey propositions. Too often the luminaries in
question have long moved past their former punk personas and any attempts
to reconnect come off as either trading in their name for a quick payday or a
textbook case of what happens when you forget what you were about.
This is not the case here. Zoo Party is a Swedish band that delivers rock-solid
tunes heavily influenced by the first wave of ........U.K. punk bands.
While the lyrics aren’t exactly Thoreau, the tunes are catchy and well delivered.
Best of all, the old punk luminaries guesting here—
The Damned’s Brian James and Sex Pistol Glen Matlock— actually add, rather
than detract, heft to the proceedings. Gotta say, this is one of the better releases
in this style I’ve heard in a while. –Jimmy Alvarado (Acme)

"Re-fuse" a listen that will send you from the ceiling to the floor and back up
again in bippity boppity. Pure punk rock pleasures”
Punk rock,hardcore and ska music resource n review (USA)

“One of the better releases in this style I’ve heard” Razorcake (USA)

“With the new album “Re-Fuse” Zooparty step up to be one of Swedens
absolute best punk bands. There isn´t a weak track on the album”
Uddevallakassetten (Sweden)

"This is an overseas delight you should chase down and indulge to.
The effervescent nature of the CD and the quick pulse it has make for a good
listen so go on - spend your "Money, Money, Money" and play this loud and
e-mail the band and simply say "Thank you for the music"". Fungalpunk (UK)

“Well produced, full throttle, and energetic” God save the Sex Pistols (UK)

“Here is the energy as many other band´s are missing and musicknowledge and
a lot of fucking good punksongs” Skrutt (Sweden)

”Zooparty, Swedens finest” Record collector (UK)

”If you could bottle this shit and sell it you would be rich”

"There's no standout track on this CD simply because all 12 tracks scream
quality. If you love punk rock you really need to check this band out."
Gravyzine (USA)

“I played it again, and again and yet again so I am pretty damn sure that once
you pick it up you will have the same problem… you won’t stop being able to

“They mean it, maaaan and they are keeping it real without sounding nostalgic.”
Big takeover (USA)

“Their sound though undeniably their own reflects a very 70's punk feel and is

actually SOUND like a punk rock band that’s formed in 1977 Sweden and not like
a band that formed in 2005” Terminal Boredom (USA)

”Zooparty, Swedens Sex Pistols” Punkblog (FRANCE)

harmony and then speed it up a notch or two to make it a touch more ummm frantic."

“High energy punk rock” The HV Scene (USA) “English punk rock with winks
to the Sex Pistols” Dreun.be (Belgium)

WMBR 88.1 FM in Boston recently played "The Nevers" from our new album

"General Cutter" "Bring the bored", "Criminals police the criminals" three times

All you wonderful peaople at Late Risers´Club: We love you!!!

The greatest Sex Pistols site, "God save the Sex Pistols", really like our new
album and has posted the following reveiw. They also published pictures from
the recordings with Glen Matlock in Stockholm, Sweden, pictures when he
played live with Zooparty at Mosebacke Stockholm, studioreport and link to
Amazon where you can buy it!!!!

"A corker of punk rock album. I've been playing the latest offering by Sweden's
Zooparty since its release in October last year; I made it one of my choices of
2009 in my Editorial. It's time to give it a bigger plug. Why? Because it's pretty
damn good. And it's bolstered by the involvement of both Glen Matlock and
The Damned's Brian James. As mentioned in the report below, Glen played
guitar on Raised On Boredom, The Nevers, Bring The Bored,
We Have The Right To Know What's Wrong, C´mon and General Cutter.
Brian James chips in with distinctive scuzzy lead breaks on C'Mon and
We Have The Right... Punchy and powerful, and sung in English, this trio of
die hard punks tear through anti-authority anthems as though it was 1977.
“We were raised on boredom, now we're raising hell” they scream like men
possessed. It must be pretty grim over in Sweden. These guys are not happy;
“bring a book with a happy ending” they urge during their opening gambit.
Strangely enough, Re-fuse will leave you feeling pretty good about yourself.
It's well produced, full throttle, and energetic. If you fancy taking a punt on
some derivative punk rock action from the continent, give ZooParty a try.
Can you refuse? Review by Phil Singleton (February 2010)"

They posted it here: http://www.philjens.plus.com/rattle/glen_production.htm
Thanks a lot, we´re really appreciate it!

Zooparty-Re-fuse.
Yet another amazinly punk as fuck release by sweden's
Zooparty, welcome "Re-fuse" a listen that will send you from the ceiling to
the floor and back up again in bippity boppity. Pure punk rock pleasures from

The international DIY punk fanzine, radio show and record label Maximum
Rocknroll really love our new album "Re-Fuse". In their latest issue of their
fanzine, number 320, the have the following review:

"Sweden does it again with another brilliant melodic punk band, Zooparty could
be members of Smalltown and Randy playing together, they're that good.
They have a very sharp, catchy, clean sound that makes it very hard to sit still.
They also have definite pop sensibilities and with some crazy songwriting and
backup vocals I thought of the Rezillos and the Toy Dolls. The Ramones would
be a more obvious influence of course, but this is anything but copycat--they have
a very original sound that bursts with energy and hooks. There is also guest playing
by none other than Glen Matlock and Brian James! (It's true too; there are pictures!)
This is brilliant. If you like your punk catchy as hell then I can't recommend this
enough... So am I the last person to hear of Zooparty??"

Thanks a lot!!! We really appreciate it!!!

As you may know Nisse Hellberg from swedish rocklegends Wilmer X has
co-written a song on "Re-Fuse". Now Nisse Hellberg has heard the full album
and he really likes it: "Really good! It brings me back to those rockning years
when Wilmer X played a lot of these kind of songs. Great to hear that you´re
keeping it real." Erik wrote the song "Die" and Zooparty recorded it at
Studio 284 in Brighton, UK, with Brian James ex-member of the Damned as
producer. But after the recordings Erik realized that the song was very similar
to the Wilmer X song "Gå hela vägen". So the band took it off the first album
"You are here", and Erik got in contact with Nisse Hellberg who wrote
"Gå hela vägen". Nisse liked what he heard and gave his permission to
Zooparty to release the song. After Zooparty checked with Nisses publisher
Anders Larsson at United Stage they released "Die" on "Re-Fuse" with the
song credits "Lyrics: Erik Pettersson, music: Nisse Hellberg".
Thanks Nisse Hellberg and Anders Larsson. We´re really appreciate it!

they really like what they hear and give eight out of ten. Thanks a lot!
You can read it here: http://www.surf.to/skrutt ZOOPARTY-REFUSE
(CD-ACME RECORDS ACME 27)
"Another time so have they got Brian James and Glen Matlock into their record.
I maybe wrong but I think I can hear Matlocks guitar and Zooparty have a Pistols
-similar sound in some of the songs and that I appreciate as an old punkman I am.
Because the opposite of what man people think so do I think that Pistols is among
one of the worlds best punkband. That have Zooparty taking care of together with
a lot of other influences from the early punk and I think they have a little bit of
own sound in this anyway. Listen only to General Cutter so do you understand
what I mean….that here is it energy as many other band..s missing and
musicknowledge also and a lot of fucking good punksongs and for you who wants
to hear music in the same style as SLF, Pistols etc.(EIGHT)"

" RE-FUSE" and they really like what they hear!!They call us one of Swedens
best punkbands, that there isn´t a weak track on the album and give us four ot of five!!!
Thanks a lot!!!!!!
You can read at http://www.uddevallakassetten.se/ or here:

" Zooparty Re-fuse Zooparty har med sin nya platta Re-fuse tagit klivit upp
som ett av Sveriges aboslut bästa punkband.
Det finns egentligen inte ett enda svagt spår på skivan.
Skivan öppnas med den starka Bring the bored för att sedan med ett larm från -77.
drivas på låt efter låt. Det är få förunnat att hålla en sådan hög och jämn
standard en skiva rakt igenom. Nu finns det ju rutin i bandet, för att inte
tala om gästartisterna.
Det är inte vilka som helst som Zooparty nu för andra gången samarbetar med,
Brian James från The Damned, Lords Of The New Church och Glen Matlock
från Sex Pistols. Båda var låtskrivare till respektive band. Med sådana gäster i
studion och i bandet är det kanske inte så konstigt att det låter som det låter.
Hur det låter? Tja stoppa ner band som Buzzcocks, Pistols, Ramones, Damned
och Erik, Hård-Per samt Bumba i en mixer så voila, Zooparty! Favoritspår
"We have the right to know what´s wrong".
Låtlista: 1. Bring the bored 2. C´Mon 3. General Cutter 4. Insane 5. The Nevers
6. Neat Freak 7. Intro 8. We have the right to know what´s wrong 9. Raised on boredom
10. Criminals police the criminals 11. Laying low is not what we do 12. Die"

"The Punk Rock Demonstration". They played "This time around".
That was the second time they played that song. They also have played "Give it up"
four times and "Razoblades", "Smile" and "Two for the price of none".
Thanks a lot! We really appreciate it!

2009-06-08

* Another great review of our album "You are here". American fanzine Gravyzine
really like it. Check it out: OK, Zooparty are from Sweden and they have
the rubber stamp of Out Cold's John Evicci so what more do you need to know?
Anthemic, melodic punk, with a large dash of UK 77 sound and attitude, and the
odd nod to Detroit legends the Stooges. Shades of the Damned, Lurkers, Pistols
and the Buzzcocks, all done with the trademark flair that Swedish bands seem to
bring to the table, and topped off by guest appearances from Glen Matlock and
Brian James.
There's no standout track on this CD simply because all 12 tracks scream quality.
If you love punk rock you really need to check this band out. Ian Pickens

a song for the upcoming Zooparty album. Erik wrote the song "Die"
and Zooparty recorded it at Studio 284 in Brighton, UK, with Brian James
ex-member of the Damned as producer. But after the recordings
the band realized that the song was very similar to the Wilmer X song
"Gå hela vägen". So the band took it of the first album "You are here",
and Erik got in contact with Nisse Hellberg who wrote "Gå hela vägen".
Nisse liked what he heard and gave his permission to Zooparty to
release the song. After Zooparty checked with Nisses publisher
Anders Larsson at United Stage they are ready to release "Die" on
their upcoming album. The song credit will be "Lyrics: Erik Pettersson,
music: Nisse Hellberg". Thanks Nisse Hellberg and Anders Larsson.

* Erik and Hård-Per went to the Peace & Love Festival in Borlänge,
Sweden to meet up with Glen Matlock and the rest of the Sex Pistols. Glen was,
as always, friendly and it
was great to see him again. The Sex Pistols did a great show and we also had the
pleasure to see Hellacopters, Thåström, Kent and Waterboys.
Steve Jones also got a copy of the Zooparty album.
Maybe he will play it at his radioshow.
Thanks once again Glen for all your help with tickets and passes,
and for being our friend.

* This review is taken from a dutch magazine:
Zooparty 'You Are Here' cd (Acme/Sonic Rendezvous) 60 points (out of 100)
The Swedish Zooparty didn't get the worst known musicians on their debut album.
Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols) and Brian James (ex-The Damned) play a little part.
If you don't know it those guest appearances aren't really noticed.
The Swedish boys make melodic punkrock. A nice record, but not very special.
Minus are the somewhat monotonous vocals, that cause the songs to
sound a lot like eachother.
A big scream or growl here and there would have made 'You Are Here' less decent.

Review of Bad Chopper and Zooparty albums from Big Takeover #62:

"With three-quarters of the founding Ramones lineup now ticked off this mortal
coil and the former CBGB site transmogrified into high-end designer
John Varvatos' museum/boutique dedicated to its nouveau riche clientele's
rock 'n' roll-wannabe jerk-off fantasies--where vintage Ramones t-shirts run a
mere $800 and up--this scribe is now wondering if the tellingly-adrift
Blank Generationcan ever balance its own checkbook ever again.
The fact that Da Brudders' own
designer, Arturo Vega, was just quoted in the NY Times at a Varvatos party while
arguing with a young punkette, protesting the bourgeoisification of
punk's true ground zero, "Work hard and you'll be able to afford," the answer
is probably never, ever again.Mind you, that party--featuring live performances
by a reformed D Generation, Cypress Hill's Sen Dog, Blondie's Clem Burke,
and ex-Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello,
cost a mere $75 a head. So... at least we have Swedish bands like Zooparty,
and post-Dee-Dee-era bassist CJ Ramone's own Bad Chopper to remind us
what the true, pure essence of punk was all about! As to the music on both discs:
they're serviceable Stooges/Ramones-influenced punk with appearances by
ubiquitous legends, the Damned's Brian James and Sex Pistols' Glen Matlock
with Zooparty, and Johnny Thunders' Heartbreakers' Walter Lure and producer
Daniel Rey with Bad Chopper. The standout: Bad Chopper, who provides an
awfully raw, wild 12-song ride in 31 minutes.
Both these bands mean it, maaaan and they are keeping it real without
sounding nostalgic.
That and they don't with a heavy price tag, so support these bands!"

The up-coming London 100 club gig on April 24th is being promoted in association with the www.punk77.co.UK website. 'Mr Paul Marco' who run's the site has produced a fascinating
book on the 'other' pivotal punk club of the 1977 period - The Roxy, London WC2.
A club central to the rise and spread of Punk Rock in 1977.
A club that featured an array of major and minor punk acts of the time as well
as key faces on the scene. This is Punk Rock at the Roxy Club with struggling bands,
bad drugs and sometimes even badder music. This is home made fashion, self mutilation,
fast sex and random violence. This is magical nights of being young and having fun against
a backdrop of a subterranean London club, gangsters and Punk.
Featuring candid interviews with bands, club owners and club goers, and using unseen photos
and flyers, this is the truth behind the Punk Rock legend that was the Roxy Club,
you'll be able to buy your very own copy & have it signed personally by the author on
April 24th at our gig at the 100 Club.. Or you can get it here;- http://www.roxyclub77.co.UK/

* And the american Terminal Boredom like our album. A lot! Thanks!
Check this review out:
Zooparty “You Are Here” CD/LP I knew nothing of these guys until the CD landed on my
front porch and I popped it into my CD player. Zooparty is a three-piece punk rock band
straight out of Sweden, fronted by long-time Swedish punk fixture Erik Petterson and long-time collaborators Per Karlsson. Their sound though undeniably their own reflects a very
70's punk feel and is both catchy and melodic while still maintaining a vicious bite.
I mean these guys actually SOUND like a punk rock band that’s formed in 1977 Sweden and
not like a band that formed in 2005 out of the ashes of a slew of previous bands they were in
Think the Damned meets the Professionals. Songs that show a distinctive anti-social streak such as “Trading Happiness For Songs” and “Remember To forget” show you exactly where this band is
coming from. Produced by both Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock and Damned guitarist Brian James.
Twelve songs in all. Chalk up another hit release by Dracut, Massachusettes Acme Records.
Recommended.

"a new, punkish, swedish powerpopband featuring members from Ewing Oi, Everlone
and Zeb & The Fast Ones" and writes that "the main feeling when you listen to
the album is that it sounds good. The music and the production remind me of The Professionals,
Sex Pistols and Glen Matlocks solostuff".
Thanks Groove!

2008-02-25

* The american Maximum Rocknroll #298 put Zooparty at the reviewers´s top ten list
and give us the following review:
"From Sweden, this new band kicks out some decent retro brat punk circa 1979.
A mix of the Sex Pistols, Sham 69, and Turbonegro. Guest appearances by
Brian James and Glen Matlock drive home the sound.
A good full-length, although the songs are not terribly original and are a bit predictable.
Still, this is done well and does punk out."

"What is great about them is their ability to write a good rock song with excellent harmony
and then speed it up a notch or two to make it a touch more ummm frantic."
"ZOOPARTY does one better than all of that by taking "that sound" (fireworks,
chaos, your first kiss, a nice hamburger, cruising in your car with all the windows
down on a nice spring day, etc) and making it their own."
"If you could bottle this shit and sell it you would be rich."
Check it out in it´s full glory here

Zooparty is a band that so good that they have been namned Swedens
finest even before they released the first CD.
The story of the band began in the spring of 2005 when Erik Pettersson
got a couple of offers to put together a best of...album with songs from
all the bands he played with through the years.
Erik rejected the idea at first.

Just put togehter the old songs one more time didn´t seem that interesting.
If there should be an new album, there should be some new songs.
He started to write some songs, and talked to a couple of friends if they
we´re interested to help him out with the recording. He talked to
Ove "Bumba" Hejdeborn. A fantastic drummer who played with Erik in
the band Kvinnan, and of course with Zeb and the Fast Ones.
He talked to Per "Hård-Per" Karlsson, a amazing bassplayer and
guitarist who produced and played with Erik during the years with
Ewing Oi and also played with Bumba in the band Mudslide.

Then he talked one of the two greatest songwriter of all time,
Glen Matlock, who was willing to produce, mix and play guitar
on the recordings. He also talked to the other greatest songwriter
of all time, Brian James, who loved to play guitar on the new songs.
Then the hard work of putting all things together started.
With Glen and Brians tight schedule, there both busy recording
and touring with there own bands it was hard to find time for
the recording sessions.

Finally the A-streamstudio with engineer Henrik Åström in
Stockholm, Sweden, was booked
the 12- 17/1 -06. Unfortunate Brian couldn´t make it due to privat reasons.
But Glen arrived and the recording sessions could start.
Five days of hard work, great music and lot of fun began.
Besides all the work Glen took the opportunity to test swedish
dishes like sill, kanelbulle and rödspätta. With all his skills and talant
Glen made the songs better then the band ever thought they could sound.

Three songs we´re recorded: "Smile", "Is this all we need" and
"Anymore". The riff for "Smile" is taken from the great song
"AMÖ" from one of Hård-Pers old bands Att mörda en överordnad,
and is written by another friend Niclas Diffstedt. The song was only
released as an demo on casssett in 1984. Now Erik thought it was time
to use the great riff again and wrote the song "Smile" based on the same riff.

During the weekend in Stockholm the band started to feel that the songs,
and the line up, was worth a lot more then just as bonusmaterial on a
best of release.
There should be a band, and the band should have a name.
Or as Glen Matlock put it: "With all due respect, Erik: You will not sell
many records with the name Erik Pettersson". A bandname was needed
and Bumba came up with Zooparty. A new band was born.

The recordings was sent to Brian James who took them to engineer
Austen Gayton at Studio284, in Brighton, UK. The 1/3 - 06
Brian recorded great guitarparts to the songs, and sent them back to Erik.
The 16/4-06 Erik and Henrik went back to the studio to do one
final mix of the songs.

And that was only the beginning!
