What could be better then to do a split post with Erichs Good Bad Music For Bad, Bad Times! on a split 7inch. Since Erich like Picnic Boys he takes on the ungratefull task of posting them.
One of the most wellknown and most sought after swedish HC records.
And for once there’s some substance in the hype. It’s from 1981 wich means it’s temporary with US stuff second it got members from one of the best swedish punk band Massmedia who’s Dass jazz is HC to my ears and that was released in 1979.
Mats Nilsson one of the Nilsson brothers studied in Linkoping our hometown at the time of this release. He also run a student radio program in 1981 and he’s responsible for turning me on to Discharge and Teen Idles. I visited him a couple of times at his small student apartment and bought some records and tapes from him. A very nice guy! He also sold me the Huvudtvatt/Picnic Boys and it have been one of my swedish favourites since.
Mats later moved to Stockhom and we lost contact. Anyone knows what he’s doing nowadays? Fun connections: Ola Fagerberg who first played bass in Kurt i kuvos and later sang on the split they did with Huvudtvatt/Headcleaners joined our old band Raped Teenagers in 1985. Yeah yeah! Here’s an email from Huw(vocals) writing to the 7inchpunk guys.
