BIOGRAPHY

The Mobile Homes was formed in Sätra, Sweden in 1984 by brothers Andreas and Patrik Brun, Per Liliefeldt, and singer Hans Erkendal. At first there where many bands playing in the same premises, but later there was only a few left, and the Mobile Homes were born.

Early in their carreer Mobile Homes supported both Laibach and Nitzer Ebb on their Scandinavian tours.

The band has been signed under many labels. It started with Papa Records, but that company didn’t last for long, so they had to search for a new label.

The band contacted Swedish popstar Christer Sandelin and signed to his label called Alpha. At Alpha they released the single “I know I will die”, and after that they signed to Sonet.

Later they changed record company again, and this time they signed up with Hawk Records. At Hawk they released the albums “Hurt” remixed by Denniz Pop, “Nothing But Something” produced by Christian Falk, “Test” produced by Joolz Beeston (ex Nitzer Ebb) and “Meanwhile”.

After a long break they signed under the german company SPV GmbH, and in Sweden under Arcade/CNR. Together with the ex Kraftwerk member Karl Bartos they released the album “Mobile Homes” in 1998. The radio picked up the track “You Make the Sun Shine”, and it was later used in a commercial for the airline SAS.

In 1999 Memento Materia released a best of Mobile Homes album called “There Is No Place Like Away”.

After this they signed under Sprinkler/Universal Records and released the single “It’s All For the Best”. Then they left Sprinkler/Universal and signed under Subspace Communications.

At Subspace Comunications they released the album “The World Will Listen”, with the singles “Nostalgia” and “The More I Think the Deeper I Sink”. “The World Will Listen” was recorded in the legendary Polar Studios, formerly owned by ABBA.

In May 2003 Mobile Homes signed under BMG Sweden and released an EP produced by Sami Sirviö from Swedish band Kent and Stefan Boman. In 2009 they released “Today Is Your Lucky Day” produced by Sami Sirviö.

    Idag satte jag ihop ett konstnärligt collage av några gamla Mobile Homes-skivor och lade upp bilden på Ginza Electronics Facebook-sida :-)

    Any chance of The Mobile Homes cds being reissued? I would love to have the first few albums on cd or vinyl. Cheers
