Hlynur (Lennie) and Siggen Started the band
Smoking Moon Dandy with a new sound, but of cource
with lots of influence from the 70's.
Siggen and Lennie found David (Mr D the drummer) in an ad from the lokal newspaper, he was searching for a band. After only one song in the audicion he was hired!
David Schöne is an experienced drummer from Finnmark and have played with the all the music generals and the divas in the cold north. Like the band say's "if you have David you dont have to use a metronom".
It is funny to mention that David and Hlynur met for the first time in the year 2003 and played one gig together in Alta Finnmark. In the end of 2007 they met again by a stroke of luck, or by a touch of fate.

Ivar is obsessed by his Hammond organs, and have been playing the Beasts since the early 80's. Ivar's friends just call him John Lord. He is a great aspect for the band.
