Mando Diao

Sweden's answer to the Libertines

When Mando Diao hit the road for a global 18-month tour in autumn 2004, the last place they expected to end up was the dark seedy underbelly of Red Light Europe. Faced with strippers, night crawlers, terrorists and crack heads at every turn, it’s a wonder Sweden’s answer to The Libertines ever came back alive. Littered with dark tales about broken characters, Mando’s third album ‘Ode To Ochrasy’ is a coming of age LP for the leather clad five-piece whose previous records have been driven by childhood dreams and a desire to escape their gangster-ridden hometown.
