Album Notes
BACKFISH: Its Emily Imported from Sweden by Listening-Post Music

Backfish formed in late 1993 as Backfisch Blue by Katherine Bergström, Anna Wallmark, guitarist Linda Åkerlund and her twin sister Nina Åkerlund, drummer. All of the girls were then 17 years old.

In the beginning they rehearsed in a sewing room, crowded by sewing machines and reels of cotton. They played with The Doors as models and only one goal: not to play covers! Finally, they got a real rehearsal room, and a tutor, at the recreation centre Söder.

At this time, they changed their name to Backfisch with two record companies being interested. A Westside Fabrication got the deal and later Linda and Nina left the band. David and Elin joined the group and the name was once again changed, this time to Backfish.

The first demo was recorded in late 1994, and they also played some concerts, f.e. as warm-up for The Wannadies and 22 Pistepirkko. In 1997, the debutalbum It's Emily's was released, following the release of the single Add It/Disco. The album was produced by The Posies' frontman Ken Stringfellow, who Anna met at a concert in Stockholm. She gave him a demo, and apparently, he liked it.
