“This is the perfect book for any toilet in the world”

Norstedts, the publishing company, got the rights to publish this interview on its website and now you have a chance to listen to 7-minutes programme. And yes, the news title was taken from Per Gessle’s opinion 🙂

* Yep, he was the guy behind the liner notes in RoxBox as well as the author of forthcoming book on another Swedish band – kent.
