The Merrymakers are a Swedish based musical duo composed of Anders Hellgren and David Myhr. Their musical style is reminiscent of Puffy producer/songwriter Andy Sturmer. Sturmer in fact played drums and produced several songs on the groups second EP Bubblegun.
According to their official website's discography their major releases include No Sleep 'Til Famous, Bubblegun and the compilation CDs Andrew's Store, Now 6 and Now 8.
Hellgren and Myhr have worked with Puffy on The Story (Splurge), Otomemoriaru (Hit and Fun), the 2007 animation theme song Oh Edo Rocket and the 2007 tune Boom Boom Beat. They have also produced music for Dorian Gray and Yuko Yamaguchi.
In addition to their own work Hellgren and Myhr also play in the ABBA tribute band Super Trouper.
