The Spotnicks

The Spotnicks is a Swedish electric guitar instrumental group. Bo Winberg is the leader and
plays the lead guitar. Bjon Thelin plays the bass. Bob Lander plays the rhythm guitar and
sings. Peter Winsnes plays the keyboard and sings. Jimmy Nicol plays the drums.

The band started in 1959. They play Russian folk songs, American country music, and the world hit tunes. They play some Japanese songs composed for them. That's why the Spotnicks are very popular in Japan. "Sentimental Guitar" by Sugiyama Kochi, "Moscow" by Nakajima Yasutoshi, "Dreaming Guitar" by Hayakawa. I often play "Old Clock at Home" and "Space Creatures."
