Bjorn Again with Bernie Clifton
Bjorn Again with Bernie Clifton

Bjorn Again interview

ABBA tribute band popped into the studio to have a chat with Bernie. So - are they really Swedish?


According to Björn Again's website "Agnetha Falstart, Frida Longstokin, Benny Anderwear and Björn Volvo-us surfaced in 1989 after their helicopter and a giant glittery platform shoe from outer space collided leaving them stranded on a deserted island."

So Radio Sheffield's Bernie Clifton coaxed them into his studio for a quick chat.

Since crashing from space, the foursome talk about how they travel around in their glittery platform shoe.

Hear Agnetha talk about how a linguistics expert analysed their accents and concluded that they spoke "Swinglish" - a mixture between Swedish and English.

Björn confides that his name in Swedish means "god of rock" and so he finds being a rock god easy to cope with, even though he's having a bad hair day.

And all four laugh at how they thought they were playing their gig in the "Octopus"!
