Docent Dod – Solglasogon/Chich e chack 7″


This might not be that interesting to all the Swedes out there since Solglasogon was played to death by the swedish radio. Still today it can be heard from now and then. Regardless it’s one of the most brilliant powerpop songs to emerge out of Sweden both musically and lyrically.

Joppe Philgren got a perfect sarcastic and snotty voice. It’s a giant step from the crude punk that could be heard on their debut Sven Jerrings rost and sure I wouldn’t mind if they had released couple of more records in that vein but it was as high energy pop band they sounded the best.

Solglasögon är en jävligt barnslig grej det kan aldrig bli någonting mellan dig och mig.

    Hmmmm? Started with the B side first…tic toc, tic toc…got up grabbed some clothes, headed to the shower. “Chick e Chacka, Chick e Chacka” was blaring through the house. Took my shower, dried off…”Chick e Chacka, Chick e Chacka…hmmm…the song is still playing! Got dressed, mowed my lawn, came into the house…”Chick e Chaka, Chick Chaka…holy shit, the song is still playing! Pushed stop. I think the song should be a little longer…this is pretty bad. Thanks.

    Actually, the first two Lp’s by Docent Död are quite good regular pop-albums. Every now and again they let off steam and produce some more songs in the same fashion as “Solglasögon”

    @ Jay. To fully comprehend the total brilliance of Chick e chack you have to be born and bred in Sweden. Sorry but that´s the way it is. You can compare the lyrics with…hmmm Ah!! I know it!! James Joyce!! Yeah… ever heard of him? I must say I´m allergic to songs that is long as ragas. Not in this case, no.

    I didn’t mean to offend anyone…I was trying to be humorous. Chick e Chack…all night long.

    Thanks Jay – your comment saved this post.

    @Jay You didn´t offend. I tried to be funny too. Internet humour is a tricky thing indeed.

    I want to thank myself for saving this site through this post. Thank you!

  9. Erich says:

    And I thank you Peter for showing me not everything from Sweden was great!

  10. Jay Thurston says:

    Damn you guys! I listened to Chick e chack again…now I have to listen to it again…it is kind of like a nursery rhyme that you can’t get out of your head. Damn you!

  11. Karl Bakla says:

    wow, this is good I’m going to use my time machine to a split 7″ out with this band & the Real Kids, does any one want me to pick them any thing up while I’m time traveling?

  12. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Now I’m confused I haven’t posted Crude SS.

  13. jeremy says:

    does anyone know what record this song is from?

    i bid on a record last year that had this same cover art but was an LP. supposedly had this song on it.. whats the story, is this single taken from an LP?? or was that LP a newer comp reissue thing.

  14. Erich says:

    C’mon Peter, CRUDE SS shred!!!!

  15. SwePete says:

    @ Jeremy. The song Bensin i Blodet from the 12″ EP

  16. jeremy says:

    does anyone know where i can buy a copy of this 12″ ep??

  17. Jay Thurston says:

    CrudeSS for ever! Hell yeah. How about putting up some Doobie Brothers? They were the first punk rock band…oh yeah!

  18. Erich says:

    CRUDE SS still did shred. The fact that I like them is proof.

  19. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Just kidding Crude SS is great. They could do a split with Docent Dod.

    Comment number 21.

  21. Mean Maharaja says:

    Eh, you can say want you want about Joppes voice but Solglasögon is written and sung by Zebo, a true musical genious that unfortenately got lost quite early in his carrier. And I think Larry Lorry sings on Sven Jerrings röst.

  22. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    If that’s Zebo singing all credits go to him. In the biography’s I’ve read it mostly state Joppe Vocals/Guitar and Zebo Bass/Vocals so I assumed Zebo did the backing vocals. Thanks for the info.

  23. HA! Bra skiva tycker jag, tror jag. Men halla: “Now I’m confused I haven’t posted Crude SS.” !!!! I AM CONFUSED TOO! Jag ar aven fundersam varfor du inte har postat TATUERADE SNUTKUKAR!!! Ha ha. Laste forresten pa Mikael Sorlings blog att medlemmar fran Raped Teenagers eftersokes…vilket leder mig till att saga annu en gang: why haven’t you posted R.T.’s flexi yet??? Ho ho ho.

  24. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Maybe I shall post something by Dia Psalma? Or maybe not. I don’t think I’ll ever post the flexi by RT here. Maybe some unreleased recordings some day but I’m not too interested in my past bands. That label who release all these old swedish material looks a bit hmm what shall I call it? crappy? And I’ve made a promise to Max 625 Trash records a long time ago to release the RT discography which will probably never happen due to my laziness.

  25. Jag har ju flexi’n (2 ex tillochmed!) men knappast tillgang till att rippa den tyvarr. Men var det inte en Cd som typ kom ut runt ungefar 1993 som var nagonlunda discografi-artat? Eller var det Best Of? Den slank tyvarr ur mina hander och nu gar det ju knappt fa tag i…

  26. Nej Erich, du gillar tramsig hardrock. hohoho.

  27. Jay Thurston says:

    Jag gillar Abba…dancing queen.

  28. Erich says:

    Jag gillar ABBA & tramsig hardrock, hahaha. Tack tack.

  29. James says:

    Thanks Peter!!

  30. Smokey says:

    This was freaking adorable, great to play while you are in the shower shaving your pits. <3

  31. Levi Johnson says:

    This is a catchy record (I like it against my better judgment–Chicke fucking Chacka?!), but why does it send everyone into the shower? Bathing is about as punk as moustaches.

  32. Peter J says:

    Chicka chacka chicka chacka oi oi oi…

  33. Anonymous says:

    How come, even though I said that I do not like Chick e Chaka, I always come back and listen to it again and again and again?? I actually really like the song now and will cherish the record when I can find it.

  34. Keith says:

    Solglasögon is my favorite song right now, I probably hear it 10 times a day. Love the lyrics. Chick e chack is cool too, 8 to 5 until 58……..
