Thåström was the guitarist in one of the leading Swedish punk bands Ebba Grön. When Ebba Grön split up, some its members, including Thåström, started Imperiet, which would become one of the biggest Swedish bands in the 80s. His solo career started in 1990 with the release of his self-titled album. After moving away from his solo career to start the band Peace, Love and Pitbulls he made a comeback with the critical acclaimed album Det är ni som e dom konstiga, det är jag som e normal (You are the Strange, I am the Normal). In 2009 Thåström released his eighth solo album Kärlek är för dom (Love is for them).
