Fucking hell, I don’t know if it’s wordpress, dreamhost or if it’s my computer(probably your connection ed.note)that is slow today, but it took almost 2 hours to upload this 7″! Luckily I had a funny school book about marketing to read while I did it so it didn’t feel like a total waste of my precious time. Thank you Dan and Kaj for making me study full time on weekends as well!
OK, believe it or not, but this record was actually recorded and released in 1984! Yes, 1984, the Orwellian year when trallpunk, d-beat and Oj! was the thing in Sweden, and genetic hardcore was the thing in the US of A Anti-Avans managed to pay Asta Kask’s studio a visit and record five amazingly sloppy 79 sniffing punk songs with what might be the most out of time hand clap ever recorded. And they managed to redo the Lucia classic Stilla Natt, just like Asta Kask, The Pinheads and Desperate Livin’. I’m pretty damn sure another Swedish punk band have done it as well, but I can’t remember who… I’m sure it’ll come back to me sooner or later thou.
Hopefully this post will get the band some well deserved attention as I’m sure a lot of collector scums (yes, that includes you Peter) have ignored this one mainly because of the year it was released. I know I choose to ignore it until a friend played it for me and I was immediately hooked and had to find me a copy as soon as possible. It took about a week and cost me practically nothing. Unfortunately it didn’t come with an insert nor any of the 4 different zines the members did, so thank you Peter Jandreus for the insert.
I’ve heard some rumors that the band, or at least some of the members later on played in IFK Gamla Saxon who I’m sure you’ve all heard of thanks to their massive popularity all over the world in the late 80’s/ early 90’s.
