OK, I don’t think this is the greatest record ever released, but it’s THE FIRST SWEDISH PUNK RECORD so I thought it might as well be worth a post no matter what. In my opinion it’s a bit too much rock n’ roll, but so were most of the records released in 76 and 77 as well so maybe a kid like me should shut up? The funniest thing about them is that the guitar player, Janne Andersson is the brother of Mona Sahlin, the bad girl of Swedish politics who’s been caught shop lifting and didn’t pay her television license! Naughty, naughty, very naughty! Janne played in The pain as well, who were Sweden’s punk bad boys together with DT & The Stoodes, so maybe it runs in the family.
The 7″ was recorded in 1,5 hours on a Sunday morning which is very impressive, and my guess is that the lads wanted to go back to bed as soon as possible. They did an E.P. under the name Mandarines in 1978, and by then they had even longer hair, and yes, that one will be posted here as well.
