    Gammal is such a killer song, it blew me away when I first heard it on Bloodstains Across Sweden #3 back in ’98. This has to be one of the only picture sleeves with a punk/weightlifting crossover theme. Was this guy a friend of the band or something? Or maybe a band member? Strange… I didn’t think punks and weightlifters hung out together, ESPECIALLY not in 1980 when punks were on the receiving end of beatings from guys like this. I take that back– some punks did become jocks and weightlifters during the straight edge boom of the late 80’s/early 90’s. A funny time…

      No, weightlifters and punks normaly didn´t hung out together, but…this guy was my friend and we thoght it would be a really anti-punk-punk thing to do have him on the recordsleeve. In one of our shows we invited him to be with us on stage. He was wearing a Superman-t-shirt, but Instead of playing any instrument he throw eggs on the audience.

          Baseball is a sport in the United States. In recent testimony, to my delight, the girlfriend of Barry Bonds, a player/steroid experiment, stated that she noticed at some point that his testicles felt significantly smaller in her mouth! As my AC/DC-sized balls never receive any attention, I am thinking of dropping my usual drug repertoire for steroids.

          Beyond the cover picture (which is fucking great), I fail to understand the appeal of this record. The guitar on the A-side is good but the song sort of plods along. Thanks, nonetheless, to TV Eye.
