Hopalong Knut is a nine-piece ska band from Norway, with a very charming and energetic vocalist and possibly the best horn section in Norway. They sing in their own Norwegian dialect (from the region Trøndelag). Their first album came out in 2005, named "Feilkalibrert tidsmaskin". Roughly translated this title means "Badly Calibrated Time Machine" - meaning that the band feel they don't feel home in our world. The album got reasonably good reviews, though the band was critized somewhat for playing only "party music".
