The Stockholm band South Ambulance was formed in late 2003 by Pietu Kaipainen, Daniel Filipsson, Robin Spurrier & Daniel Gamba. In November the same year, four songs were caught on tape and the band was offered to do their first live set at a club in Stockholm, the legendary Kafé 44. The audience was happy, Swedish radio started to play the music and magazines wrote nice words so the band decided to put out their EP 1 on cd-r. Die 5times times5, their first recording, was spread on the internet and became a hit in Sweden. During 2004 South Ambulance played gigs, recorded more songs, participated on compilations and released EP 2 and EP 3, still with great support from fans, radio and magazines.In January 2005 friend & percussion/keyboard player Stefan Lindström joined the band. Sonic magazine put Saturdays for Sad Excuses on their compilation Sonically Speaking. More shows, radio airplay and song writing led the band to finally sell its soul and sign with Labrador Records in Sweden. Their debut album was released on the 23rd of march 2005.Ok, that's all good so far, but what has happened since?In the harsh winter of 2009 they emerged from the studio again, with loads of new material. In early spring they released their EP 4, with great response especially from fans in the UK. EP 5 and EP 6 are to be released during early summer 2009.
