I told you I would post Lars Lang’s next band, and here they are; The Vertex. Dressed in their parents old suits these ex-Langs managed to write some damn fine 60’s inspired mod tunes and give them a production as thin as Ric Ocasec.
The band started out as Exit 45 before changing their name to C-Side Spinners before they settled for The Vertex and release their first EP in 1980. This however is their second and last own release as the only thing that came after this 7″ was a few songs on compilations.
The band was, together with their friends Traste & Superstararna, managed by Swedish music legend John L. Byström, who later on started the fine indiepop magazine Sound Affects that he ran until he was tragically killed in a car accident in the US in 1999.
Their first EP is very amusing since the singer has the worst English pronunciation ever, but unfortunately I sold my copy for unknown reasons about 10 years ago. And I still regret it!
