Inseparable Anglophiles Robert Plaszczyk and Magnus Carlson (Weeping Willows) run the incredibly popular Bangers'n'Mash club together with former Ride guitarist and current Oasis bassist Andy Bell
Every second Saturday they get the dancefloor moving to the baggiest Madchester, singalong Britpop and ravetastic acid house for all the Stockholm geezers in need of more excitement in their lives.
They have also brought over a steady flow of celebrities from England, including previous guests Mani, Peter Hook, Carl Barat, Dot Allison and Ian McCulloch.
Major party as Bangers presents the official release party for new Oasis album Dig Out Your Soul. Guest behind the decks is none other than Mani from Primal Scream and, formerly, The Stone Roses.
Residents Magnus Carlson & Robert Plaszczyk are also joined by old mod baron Fredrik Ekander.
