Profile The band hailed from Huskvarna, Jönköping formed in 1985 by members of Headline and broke up 1993. The name Raccoon was taken from the Beatles song “Rocky Raccoon”. The Group did some 500 gigs in Scandinavia during the 8 years it existed. The band took part inn competition “Band Explosion ’89” among 2000 bands. They manage to be in the best twelve bands and although they didn’t win the quality of their songs help them to gain a contract with the Danish Bums Records, where they release their first album “Kept in the Dark”.

Their sound is a mixture between Bon Jovi style, Smokie and the American power rock with powerful guitars, sleek melodies, memorable chorus and vocal harmonies. Got together again almost 30 years later and now release a new album titled “Second Chance”. A not very easy album to be found nowdays. Similar to Angeline, Frontiers, Limit, Simson, Jeanne d´Arc, Fortune, Maeday, Stallion and others.
