Artist Biography
Raga Rockers is a Norwegian rock band from Oslo. with Michael Krohn (ex- Kjøtt) on vocals. The band was formed in 1982 by front man Michael Krohn. The other members were Livio Aiello on bass, Bruno Hovden on guitar, Jan Arne Kristiansen on drums Tore Berg on guitar, Hugo Alvarstein on Keyboards, and Nils Aune (ex- Svart Framtid and Kafka Prosess) on guitar and keyboards. They recorded their very first album in 1983, called The Return of the Raga Rockers. One year later they recorded their second album - Maskiner i Nirvana. Bruno Hovden tragically died in a car crash in 1985, shortly after the release of Maskiner i Nirvana. By the end of the 80s they released three more albums in quick succession - Varme Dager (1987), Forbudte Følelser (1988), Blaff (1989) and Rock'n'roll Party (1990). By then the frontman Michael Krohn and the rest of the band felt they were "stuck" in the band, and they decided to split. For the next few years they played a few farewell-shows, but by 1995 they recorded a new album called Perler For Svin. Seemed they wouldn't quit after all... The 1996 live album Live Again followed, and the studio effort Til Helvete Med Raga Rockers (1997). In 2000 they released an album called simply Raga Rockers, but then they went into some sort of hiatus. In 2005, a compilation album was released, followed by an extensive tour. In 2007 they released the album Übermensch, proving they are still to be counted among Norwegian rock's finest.
