Biography

Picture a walk down memory lane in an overheated reggae territory. The soul of a small club by a dusty road that reeks of cigarette smoke and cheap whiskey.The Higglers was born in the southern breeze in a small east coast town in Norway called, Fevik. Formed by Leif Erik Westergren - singer, bassplayer and songwriter of the punkrockband, Darling Daizy, in 2009 as a protest against the national and international radios growing more and more apart from the great forefathers and founders of certain genres of music by devoting close to all air time to electronical music.
Even though The Higglers is an infant band-wise, the members are no strangers to the music industry or the big scene. Darling Daizy were an active band for a period of 4 years and toured USA, UK and the rest of Europe several times with bands such as The Lawrence Arms, Fabulous Disaster, The Peepshows, MTV's Jackass and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones to mention a few. The band also released 2 full length albums during that time and climbed high up on the national charts both with a music video and single from the latest album called, "Can I Get A Woop Woop". DD also performed on (...at that time-2003) on Johnny Depp's famous Los Angeles club, The Viper Room.
Soundwise, The Higglers is a total different package compared to Darling Daizy's punkrock. The Higglers is influenced by the classical cripsy days of music all the way back to the 50's when the musical expression was about having a good time. The Higglers does reggae with a soul but has a punkrock beast half-a-sleep lurking in the back.

Lyrics

Once upon a time...

Written By: Leif Erik Westergren

(Mini-Choir: "Ooh I said it")

He said you better make peace with yourself at some point
You oughta choose a different path once to see were it leads
And I'm overwhelmed with technology and pony rides, could someone guide me to the 70's?.

Chorus:

Before my soul got stolen and the rain only fell on thursday nights at a time when people suddenly stopped by. When you didn't have to pick a fight, back to when I was high

(Mini-Choir: "Ooh I said it")

He said, "you better wake up and pinch your arm properly"
make up with the monster hiding by the fountain of rock
one sip away from a full blown alchoholism
could someone walk me to Woodstock?.

Chorus:

Before my soul got stolen and the rain only fell on thursday nights at a time when people suddenly stopped by. When you didn't have to pick a fight, back to when I was high

(Mini-Choir: "Ooh I said it")
