Tant Brun came from Jonkoping, aka Sweden’s Jerusalem. The city is mainly known for it’s billion churches, a very good ice hockey team, Dag Hammarskjold, The Cardigans and d-beat punk, but it should be known for Tant Brun.
As a kid growing up in the twin city Huskvarna I never heard of them, which feels pretty weird as I remember seeing posters and jackets tagged with every other local band but them. It might have to do with the fact that they had a manager and were considered a bit too good looking, but who knows… At least the guy in shorts and sandals manage to look very hot. Among the numerous bands from the area Tant Brun were the only ones who managed to release records during the first wave of punk, and they are most likely the only band ever to use the phrase “varandra ar ett reciprokt pronomen”. Even if they didn’t like school they managed to pick up some swedish grammar for sure.
Apart from the rocking tunes on this 7″ they released another 7″ in 1981 before they decided to call it a day. That one is more in the power pop vein, but still good enough to be posted here if Peter allows me to do it…
