Benny brought to a Hammond-organ and power in his parents' house Bjorn. "The noise was such that my father came down to us and said:" I beg your pardon. Of course I like what you are doing, but better to go and do it somewhere else ". Then handed us the keys to his office at the paper mill and went "- BjцTrn laughs. By the morning of the first song was born Andersson / Ulveysa.
There was disagreement on the question of which of the groups should write "Isn't Easy To Say?".
