Formed in 2004. World domination in 2010. Join the ride!
Dolly Daggers was born in the Winter of 2004. Their self-titled debut EP was recorded in the Summer of 2005 in KingA Studion in Malmö (Sweden) and produced by Alice In Videoland’s producer and drummer Anders Alexander. Even before Dolly Daggers, the members were already known for their wild and unpredictable live shows, and so when the rumours of the new band started to go around the expectations were huge.
All band members come from different musical backgrounds spanning heavy metal to punk rock, blues and 80's pop. Maybe this unlikely combination is what makes the band so interesting. Some common influences can be identified, though. Bands like Danko Jones, Billy Idol, Turbonegro, Silverbullit, Hanoi Rocks, The Hives and Madonna were used as references in the studio. The band makes a point of not setting any boundaries for the music they make; they wildly mix punk rock with glam rock and disco. The result is a fresh sound; hard and melodic with roots in the 70s and 80s guitar based rock and with a few surprises. The band’s top priority is playing live and to be honest that’s where they really shine. They set out to make every performance an unique and unforgettable experience. When Christian, Jonatan, Maja and Ludvig enter the stage nothing else matters. It’s just great. It’s Dolly Daggers.
CHRISTIAN KAPUSTA – Guitar Christian, a musical anarchist, developed his own personal sound and playing style by burning the scores at a very early age for the benefit of extreme volume and great looking guitars. He is also something of the brain in the band and has a constantly waching eye on the creative process. JONATAN SERSAM – Synth, Harmonica By the time Jonatan was only fifteen, he had already gained a reputation as a harmonica player, which gave him the privilege to perform live with well-known blues artists such as Peps Persson and R&B legend Lee Oskar. He is the band’s musical genius; give him any instrument and he will probably play it great. LUDVIG SERSAM – Vocals, Bass Ludvig has everything every mean front figure must have. Gifted with an incredible voice that stretches from a tender Bono through a coarse Billy Idol to a screaming Vince Neil, he also has the looks and the charisma which if anything is proved by his sideline as a model. MAJA LJUNGBERG – Drums Maja plays hard and passionately. The rough rock style she learned from famous Swedish drummers Max Schumacher (True Lies) and Sticky Bomb (Wilmer X); the groove came from her time in Cuba when she had José Miguel, the country’s top percussionist, as her tutor. Maja also plays drums in The Models who, among other things, played opening act on a Soundtrack Of Our Lives’ tour.
