About Whale

Whale were a Swedish pop group active throughout the 1990s. The group's members were Henrik Schyffert, Cia Soro (a.k.a. Cia Berg), and Gordon Cyrus. The band enjoyed much success, particularly in the European market. Their first single, 1993's Hobo Humpin' Slobo-Babe achieved critical acclaim and heavy spins in the Euro dance club scene.

Although they formed back in 1987 (originally as the Southern Whale Cult), the band released several albums back home (such as The 52nd State of America, In Style!, Whatever, etc.) before signing a worldwide record deal in the mid-'90s. Their next album, We Care, failed to yield another hit like "Slobo Babe," and after opening for Blur on a North American tour, Cyrus left the band to form his own hip-hop record company. After a lengthy hiatus, new members Jorgen Wall (drums), Jon Jefferson Klingberg (second guitar), and Heikki Kiviaho (bass) joined in time to record their follow-up, 1998's All Disco Dance Must End in Broken Bones. Recorded in Chicago and London, the album was produced and engineered by two of today's top alternative producers -- Chris Potter (the Verve) and Brad Wood (Veruca Salt, Placebo). An extensive U.S. tour with Tricky followed soon after the album's release.
