The Electric Boys are a funk metal band founded in Sweden in 1988, which enjoyed a cult status in Europe at the end of the decade. Electric Boys formed by Conny Bloom (guitar/vocals) and Andy Christell (bass). As a duo they scored a local Swedish hit with the single "All Lips and Hips" in 1988.
Then a second guitarist Franco Santunione and drummer Niklas Sigevall joined the band and in 1989, the EB's debut album Funk-O-Metal Carpet Ride, including a new version of "All Lips and Hips" and they had great success in Europe.
EB released 3 albums and when the grunge wave hit the globe and the interest for this type of music didn't attract enough the band decided to dissolved. In 2005, founders Bloom and Christell had joined Hanoi Rocks.
