Philemon Arthur and the Dung is a Swedish folk group. The band consists of two unidentified males, possibly more, known only by the pseudonyms "Philemon Arthur" and "The Dung." They have chosen to keep their identities a secret to prevent their undisclosed hometown in Scania, Sweden from becoming the subject of media attention. Their true identities are known to only a select few bound to secrecy, among them personnel at Silence, their record label. The mystery surrounding the group, and their distinctive brand of humorous dadaist folk music, has earned them cult status throughout Scandinavia.
