Slagsmålsklubben (Swedish pronunciation: [ˈslaksˌmoːlˈsklɵbˌben]) (often abbreviated as SMK) are a Swedish electronic group from Norrköping, Östergötland. The group's name is a comically literal Swedish translation of the title of the novel and film Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk. They have released three studio albums so far. Along with their side projects 50 Hertz and Häxor och porr (Witches and Porn), they were featured on Björk's 2005 remix album Army of Me: Remixes and Covers.

SMK's members are Björn Nilsson, Hannes Stenström, Joakim "Beebop" Nybom, Joni Mälkki, Kim Nilsson and Frej Larsson. The members of the band have many side projects, such as 50 Hertz, which features many of SMK's members, Din Stalker, Hannes' solo project, and Offerprästers orkester, one of Frej's solo projects.

In 2005, the entire band moved to Berlin. As of 2011, all members have returned to Stockholm, and now share a mansion together with an on-site recording studio where they have recorded and mastered their as yet untitled fourth studio album.

History

Slagsmålsklubben was formed on 2 November 2000 in Norrköping, Sweden by Joakim "Beebop" Nybom, Björn Nilsson and Joni Mälkki, former members of the punk rock band The Solbrillers.

The idea of forming a synthpop band occurred to them at a band practice with The Solbrillers. Since the singer of the band wouldn't show up, they decided to plug in Joni's old synthesizer into his guitar amplifier. The three recorded a few songs, which eventually led to the forming of SMK.

Hannes Stenström joined the band one year later, 2001 because he had good synthesizers. Frej Larsson joined the band in 2003 after they had made the 7" Hyreshusklossar together and in 2004 Kim Nilsson joined the band, finalizing their current line-up.
