Samla Mammas Manna was a Swedish progressive rock band formed 1969 in Uppsala, Sweden by Lars Hollmer (keyboards), Hasse Bruniusson (Drums), Lars Krantz (bass) and Henrik Öberg (percussion). They were one of the founding members of the Rock in Opposition movement in the late 1970s and worked with fellow RIO member Fred Frith. Musically they were characterized by virtuosic playing offset with silly humour, similar in ways to the song-writing style of Frank Zappa. Their second album Måltid from '73 is regarded as an Avant-Prog classic. Other outstanding albums include Klossa knapitatet, Familjesprickor and Snorungarnas symfoni, which was symphonic Prog composed by Gregory Allan Fitzpatrick. In 2005 the band opened the Progressive Rock Festival that was held in Moscow.
