“Demon Child of Link Wray and Billy Childish” ,Meet – Baby Jesus


Rock and Roll time kids, today you get to crank it up a few notches and Meet- Baby Jesus. They have it all going on, vocals that scream the best of garage rock history, all the way to the organ, the pace is break neck as it should be, throw in some surf guitars just for the sheer fun of it , some added harmonica playin and your starting to get the picture, The one instrumental “Nice Walk” is a wicked update of Wipeout. Their answers might get a little DADA on you, but the music is one hundred percent kick ass rock and roll…. Thanks to our friends at Ongakubaka Records for getting us this Meet The Band

Hi our name is

Baby Jesus

People say we sound like

A psychotic Beatles, a demon child of Link Wray and Billy Childish.

We Are

Björn Axetorn, Rasmus Högdin, Elis Jäghammar, Fredrik Kristofersson and Robin Meijel.

We are from

Halmstad, Sweden.

Who are some that have an influence on you?

Lot’s of stuff! We could namedrop bands on and on and we think it’s pretty clear what

kinds of bands we like. We all have same but different tastes of music. We like honest

good music, no matter the genre.

How old were all of you when you started to play and who plays what in the band?

We no longer have this age you talk of.

Björn Åkertorp – Organ, Guitar, Vocals

Elis Roy Jäghammar – Bass, Vocals

Fredrik Kristoferoffesson – Vocals, Guitar

Robin Meijel – Percussion, Vocals, Sexmephone

Rasmus Högdin – Drums

Can you tell us about the process you use, from writing the songs all the way through

getting the songs out?

We’re a jammin band, this is our process!

What are some of the challenges you face as musicians and how have you overcome

those challenges?

Fredor going out of script, and we give him prop–er guidance and he’ll slide back to


If you could pick any time to travel back to for music, where would you go and what

year would it be?

The future, man.

Who are all of you currently listening to?

Fjodor Dostojevski, the greatest flute player in all of Yucutan! He use a special flute

sucking mechanism, it comes out great!

If you could open for any Band right now, who would that be and why?

Fjodor’s great and all, but honestly.. sometimes the flute can be a bit boring. We would

like to open for the holy man.

My youngest son is 13 and in a Band, what advice would you offer him?

Pay great homage, and provide great offerings to the simple man.

The one thing we want you to remember while you’re listening to us

That the space isn’t that deep, at all..

Our plans for 2015

Get on some booking agencies, tour the world..

We’ve got our debut album out on tape with ONGAKUBAKA Records, vinyl will be out in

the US on Yippee Ki Yay Records and in Europe through our collaboration with

Levitation Records.

We’ve almost got the recordings done for the second album, we hope to get it released

this year around too.
