They started back in 1989 under the name of DISCHANGE and released some amazing stuffs like the great "SEEING FEELING BLEEDING" Album....changing the name to MEANWHILE and still today in activities making tons of great records!!!
And now some words from this D-BEAT/DISCORE Machine from Sweden!!!
VP.Well,i can´t remember exactly when i hear you by the first time like DISCHANGE back in the past!...i think was in "BLLEEEAAAUUURRRGGHH!!" comp. ep and then in the split ep with EXCREMENT OF WAR...i just remember i was(and i´m still...) totally into DIS bands like DISCLOSE,DISCARD...and you was a great influence to me too...specially for the "dis-logo" in BLLEEEAAAUUURRGGGHH!! ep....
Did you started DISCHANGE back in 1989,i´m right?...and beyond these 2 records i mentioned above and your amazing(!!!) "SEEING FEELING BLEEDING" album...did you recorded anything more with DISCHANGE name?
Jallo: Yes, we started -89. Kenko and me started the band after a NO SECURITY rehearsal. Yes we did 2 demos before the mentioned records.
VP-Why is the reason you changed the name to MEANWHILE?
The name is cauze for a DISCHARGE song same name?
Jallo: There was too many Dis bands around...think that was the reason. And yes, it helped a lot that DISCHARGE got an song called that also...haha...
VP-About the line up...who still is in since DISCHANGE era??
how many difficulty is to you to keep a concrete line up in the band since you something like 19 years in activities?
Jallo: Well, it's still me, Kenko and Jocke. Peter is the "new" guy... he grabbed the bass -96. Michael, our original bassist died -95 (R.I.P). It's not that hard to keep the band together, we only do 4-6 show per year.
VP-what do you are doing beyond MEANWHILE?? others bands? projects? jobs? hobbies?
Jallo:All of us got jobs. Peter is playing in ARCANA and TYRANT.
I got ÄÄRITILA,KRIGSHOT and KVOTERINGEN. Kenko is playing guitar in IMPERIAL LEATHER, Jocke is in ÄÄRITILA and sometimes playing the bass in KVOTERINGEN.
VP-How is the scene in your area? good places to play...great bands did you have played with?
Jallo: Not really...
VP-here in Brazil is fucking hard to find your records...i have just the "THE ROAD TO HELL" CD(That have the DISCHANGE track from BLLEEAAUURRGHH too...)....and others just in tapes....what about your discography??

VP-did you tour overseas?? played in others places??
Jallo: We did a couple of shows in Canada. Germany, UK, Belgium, Holland, Norway, finland and some other european countries.
VP-DISCHANGE was totally into "DIS-WAY"...war themes...etc...are you today closed in these facts?? or are you singing about others themes too??
Jallo: No, not closed to war lyrics, but teher are other things to sing about also.
