In 1989 childhood friends Peder Carlsson, Dregen and Johan Blomquist were joined by Nicke Borg and BACKYARD BABIES was born.
The 80's was a decade where many dreamt of a rock star life and for most that is exactly what it remains to be – a dream, however vivid. ButBACKYARD BABIES understood that it requires hard work, ‘’persistentnagging”and a lot of networking to reach the absolute top. The ambitionwas set high from the very start. They enter a pact - they willbreakup with their girlfriends andfocus all their energy on the band. They will move to Sweden's capital, Stockholm. The goal is crystal clear -BACKYARD BABIES shallsucceed. They will be rock stars.
The band quickly buildsa life consisting of intense repetitionand equally intense partying, whether it'sa weekday or weekend. In Stockholm's nightlife, theydevelop new contacts and one thing leads to another.BACKYARD BABIES finally sign a record contract withMegarock Records and in 1994,theyrelease their debut album - aptly titled "Diesel & Power”.
