The Doits

The story of the Doits began in the late 70s in Skellefteå, the "capital of pop" in northern Sweden, where the two brothers Altay and David Sagesen were born and raised. They didn't like the taste of the mainstream pop that they grew up with so, by the time they formed their own band, they had developed an appetite for the heavier flavours of rock music and started looking for inspiration on the other side of the Atlantic. Since the release of their first album, the band members have spent a lot of time listening to a variety of power-pop, punk and new wave artists such as the Posies, Big Star, Reigning Sound, Buzzcocks, Stiv Bators, the Plimsouls, the Vibrators, the Flaming Groovies and the Barracudas to name but a few. Traces of soul, old blues and country & western have also been added to the mix. Together with multi-platinum producer Christoffer Lundquist (Ed Harcourt, Per Gessle, Magic Numbers), the band spent a few weeks in his studio Aerosoul Grey Machine and recorded their second album "Lost, Lonely & Vicious".
