Goteborg Sound – S/T 7″



Equally as much progg as punk can be found in the sound of GBG(short for Goteborg) Sound. The rock n roll riffs that became the trade mark of the whole late 70s punk scene in Gothenburg was maybe used the most by these nice looking lads.


To me Pappas pojkar is their best song tightly followed by Bjorn Borg(the first record posted here). Just listen to the spitting break at 1:31 into the song and you know that they’re serious in their hate against brats supported by their rich dads. If they where around today I guess something like this would’ve been a great inspiration.

    Not “progg” naturally. They were into pubrock.

    I found the Good Bad Music For Bad, Bad Times through this site here. Sure he’ve posted some great music and some bad ones too. But the silly people that now are flooding the comments section makes me want to skip it. And why have he started to delete comments? Any of you remember his attack on 7inchpunk?

  7. RAGE says:

    I don’t take side cause these blog wars is just crap. Too many people seems to overreact when it comes to music. WHAT THE HELL??

    Great post here Peter!

    this blog kills the others so why bother? it’s not even a competition.

  9. Senap says:

    So what’s Erich got to do with GBG Sound? Leave comments on this Swedish crown jewel of punkrock instead. And Peter, post the 1978 single as well. Just because I’m such a bastard who has no vinyl left at all

  10. Yes, this makes me want to buy lots of expensive swedish beer and start a streetfight on avenyn. In a good way.

  11. MILKY AFN says:

    I hope you fellows didn’t think I had something to do with the blog wars.
    I actually was REQUESTING GLAM.

  12. MILKY AFN says:

    Or were you all talking about the comment with the phrase “he’ve posted some great music” in it.

    The blog that KILLS all others will be the one to post the first 2 Aussie 7 inches by SPK that have never been re-released.
    They were on eBay not but a year or so ago and sold for incredible sums.
    These would be the records SPK made before the Slogun single was released on Industrial and the sound is sopposed to be totally different. The EP that contains the song “No More” is allegedly punk; though I have not heard it.

    The Come Sunday ep from Come Organization (Pre-Whitehouse) would also be interesting to see posted, along with Whitehouse’s Right to Kill LP considering that it will not be re-released.

    No comments necessary. If anyone got something to say to Erich then head over to his blog. The link can be found on the left.

  14. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Yepp Senap, the other GBG 7″s will be posted later on :). Don’t you worry!

    Ping Pong Punk is obviously a cowardish wanker. And pardon me if I use the word in this context: A mongo deluxe.

  16. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Yeah yeah “killer cane” we’ve seen that. This site is about music nothing else! If you got something to say to me then that’s a different story. Shoot. Can take it all baby.
