Jonas Houston Nilsson and Lars TC Anderson met in a recording studio back in 1987 but afterward had no contact for the following 30 years until 2017. When the guy owning the studio unearthed some master tapes they shared they met again and reconnected. Drummer Jonas had formed a band with Guitarist Anders Harning and Bass player Thomas Franzén and recruited Lars TC on vocals and guitar. After just a few months of songwriting and rehearsals, the band entered Studio Skogen to record an EP. The recording continued at LA Hook studio recording Vocals, Keyboards and some additional guitars where the EP Pawns in a Rigged Game was finalized.
