ABC 80 – Pop i radion 7″




Pop, a definition taken from Urban Dictionary.

Horrible “music” in wich (sic) teenage girls age 13 and up sing about the hardships of love, they do not write their own songs, nor music, and there are no real instruments, just a repetitive and chaotic electronic beat in the background with the girl constantly going “ooooh ooooh! oh woah woah woah woah woah woah, heee heeeeya-ya! ooooh baby!” in between verses.
In a word, ass paste.

ABC 80 were only a pop band, but I like it no matter what! One of the greatest power pop releases from Sweden ever and if you don’t like it, you ain’t nothing but a tard.

For those of you who thinks the name rings a bell but never gave a damn about computers, one of the members was in Brigad 45 b as well.

    Pop i radion is what I want to hear. Märvelouös!

  3. Now that’s an intriguing definition of “Pop(ular Music” ……. The wikipediasation at work, I guess. Fucking dumbos.

    Nice record, methinks. And the cover rules!

  4. Jay Thurston says:

    The B side is by far the best! Fuck Abba! This is the real pop

    I thought this would be too fey for you Erich, but I’m glad you liked it. The cover art is stolen from a box of washing powder called Radion so the band just added “Pop i”. According to the info sheet from KBD # 51 the boys hoped that the company would sue them and give them lots of attention in media. Nothing happened thou. They did a second 7″ in 82 but that one ain’t supposed to be any good at all according to those who’ve heard it.

  6. Radion = my fave washing powder (cuz it’s so cheap).

    This is POP! Their second effort plunged right down in the Flanger Hell. Svårmod and Teen Angst. I got it if you want it. Jay will get it for free.

    As if anyone cares, but sadly I finally got a job. Add toiling away 40hrs a week on top of my old list of responsibilities, which never included anything more than fucking my girlfriend and nursing hangovers, and I don’t have as much time to check out the postings. I never said so when I was a man of leisure, but, Martin, these social-democratic Mongolian songs supplement Peter’s more immediately catchy songs nicely; despite their rebellious posturing, punks in their 40s are attracted to the imperialist tongue that is English. Because of the two of you, I actually bought a bottle of Akvavit and read a history of Scandinavia. I think that alone makes you both deserving of generous state subsidies (or at least an evening alone with Fredrik Eklund)!

    I had a Vic 64, it ruled. This don´t.

  10. Hahaha. Pär wins. A million points for him.

  11. The Faintest Ideas//Drummer says:

    Thank you for returning from the dead to give us some words of encourage Christer. Now I have to google Fredrik Eklund to see if that’s someone I wanna spend my evening with.

  12. The Faintest Ideas//Drummer says:

    … He claims his background in acting has not affected his career negatively… I might have some prejudice, but I thought real estate broker was a fancy name for an ass kisser anyway, no matter if they get it on tape or not.

    Yeah I like this one Martin.
