Rune Strutz – S/T E.P. 7″

Ah! Knugen was posted in the TV Eye // Drummers New Years Eve post. A fantastic song! But there’s one more namely the a-side. This is some insanely great “Folkets Hus” punk. Don’t know if there’s any similarity’s to Folkets hus outside of Sweden? Roughly translated The Peoples House. Those Folkets hus can be found in every small or big city all over Sweden and was built up by the early Nykterhersrorlsen(The Stay Sober Movement) to gather the poor and drinking working class for sober events. Later on they became the hall for the growing Socialdemocratic movement to spread their political ideas.

Why do I call it Folkets Hus punk? It sounds like the sound you could experience while visiting punk gigs in the late ’70s in Folkets hus. Big, empty and somewhat messy.

Rune Strutz where from Uppsala and god knows what happened to these guys but at least they carved their name into the swedish punk history with this classic piece of Socialdemocratic Folkets hus punk.

    @Senap Vem var den begåvde som rimmade Diana med Banana?

  11. Senap says:

    Den (enligt dej) begåvade mannen som skrev hela texten till Lady Diana (RIP) var vår excentriske bassist Timo Kangas. Som senare blev hypad rockjournalist på bl a Göteborg-Posten. Han hade väl nån form av språkbegåvning antar jag?
