Club 8 strikes me again...

Club 8 is a Swedish musical group consisting of Karolina Komstedt (from the band Poprace) and Johan Angergård (Acid House Kings, Poprace). Formed in 1995, they were immediately signed to the Spanish record label Siesta.
They released a single called "Me too" and an album called Nouvelle on Siesta before deciding to move on to other labels. The sound at this point could almost be categorised as anorak pop with influences from Sarah bands, Jim Ruiz and The Smiths.
Angergård noted that 80s-era UK bands were influential, including
The Smiths, The Orchids and The Field Mice. Also, in the studio, he played all of the musical instruments except the trombone and the brass.
