Erasure-ish - Björn Again

When Erasure released their Abba-esque EP, it was almost a given that Björn Again, one of several Abba cover bands, would come up with the idea of covering Erasure songs. And sure they did. 'Erasure-ish' was released in 1992 and reached number 25 in the UK singles chart.

Björn Again was created in 1988 in Melbourne, Australia by Rod Stephen and John Tyrrell. After the first Björn Again show at a pub in the inner Melbourne suburb of Collingwood called The Tote Hotel on May 6, 1989 the show's popularity increased quickly, which first took the group Australia-wide and then overseas to international acclaim. Original members for the first six years of the band included Gavin Charles (Bjorn), Janette Stuart (Agnetha), Dorina Morelli (Frida) and Peter Ryan (Benny). Both Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson have lauded Björn Again a number of times over the years, and after Abba's former members made their intentions known that they were not going to perform together any longer, Andersson was quoted as saying in 1999, 'Björn Again are the closest you can get to seeing Abba. Abba will never reform!'
