Cortex – Sleepwalking 7″

cortex_cover.jpgOhhhh shit it’s Freddie Wadling behind the microphone again(Perverts etc). He gives me big goose bumps all over everytime he opens his mouth. I actually enjoy the a-side Sleepwalking alot nowadays though in the past it was always Jesus i betong that got the spins on my turntable. You cannot underestimate Freddie Wadlings huge impact on the early punk scene. A voice so unique and still going strong.

    A bit off topic maybe but still a question many people will find interesting: do ald men get goose bumps on their heads too?

    Thanks so much for posting this! I’ve had a crummy sounding cassette copy of this 7″ for years, and now I can finally retire it! “Sleepwalking” is such a great creepy song, and Freddy’s singing style makes it even better. Their “Spinal Injuries” LP has some interesting stuff on it too. In an old issue of Ugly Things ‘zine I think I remember Johan Kugelberg saying that he produced a record by Freddy that won a Grammy or some kind of music award (?).

    Great. For all you who know swedish, read the book about freddie called Freak. A great book.

  6. OMG! Thank you – been looking for this for a hu-hum while (years!).

    Spinal Injuries LP is available for listening on my website if anyone is keen on that one…I sure am!

    One of the best bands Sweden has ever had.

    Today I found out that Jesus i betong is a cover of SPKs-Mekano:
    why haven´t anyone told me?


    Cortex was one of the best bands ever.

    wasnt Freddie in a stooges/Ramones cover band called “FROG2000” prior to all of this? and did any tapes ever surface?

      Maybe you’re thinking of Straight Jacket? Freddies first punk band that mostly did covers by british bands. They did release a tape of their farewell gig. Anyone got it?
