Here’s a timeless Swedish classicÂ 7″ with some great punk for all us lovers of harmonica! Did I just make you throw up? All I can say about it is: never mind the harmonica, here’s Ravjunk! The b-side is a surprisingly good cover of the usually boring Dylan number. Oh, you don’t have to worry about the text on the label that says it’s at least 5 minutes long, it’s actually only 3.50 which is a shame.
Ravjunk recently got back together, so if you wanna book them for a gig in your shitty hometown, drop them a line over at their myspace site or visit their official website. Make sure to ask them if they got a spare copy of their highly collectable LP Uppsala Stadshotell Brinner when you’re there as well. I’m sure it’s the first time anyone will ask them that.

I’m quite sure Ravjunk was put together by the Idol jury. 5 that handsome guys can’t just form a band without some help from experts on true quality music.
This has got to be one of the worst 7″s I heard so far. And Sweden had a lot to offer in terms of hippie shit that some people take for punk ….
Now that’s a bit rude Erich! Don’t forget about all those shitty NWOBHM records as they suck 100000000000000000000000000000 times more than RÃ¤vjunk.
By the way, you got me in the mood for posting their first E.P. that is more bluesy and free form jamming punk.
BTW: Is “Martin” and “The Faintest Ideas // Drummer” one and the same person?
Yes we are Erich, but there’s another Martin who comments here from time to time as well, and that’s not me.
Confusing, confusing. In the meantime, I played “All along the Watchtower” circa 5 times (the original, of course). A great song.
No one should ever fuck up a Jimi Hendrix song…I mean ever! That was horrible. The A side, I see, is where they got there name. Not so much the “Rav” part, but definitely the “junk” part. I am terribly sorry Martin, but this is really bad, although not as bad as that “heavy metal” crap that Erich likes…hahahahahaha.
“All along the watchtower” has been recorded by Jimi Hendrix
and a number of other artists. I t was originally written and performed by Bob Dylan.
I just read the post again and realized that I was a bit unclear on the Dylan part. I didn’t mean to say that Bob Dylan’s songs (and especially All along the watch tower) are boring, I meant that his songs been covered way too many times and in way too many boring ways.
Bohman, Bohman is great! Though I like the later version without harmonica better. Cause it’s without harmonica right? Not at home so I can check. Who’ve fucked up a Hendrix song here? Dylan is overrated crap. Can’t stand any of his songs.
Ha ha!! I agree on the above as far as Ravjunk goes… Back in the 80’s (I think) one of my relos was very disappointed in the performance of Dylan at his live show because he did “punk” versions of his songs!
Is this song a tribute to Adam and Jonathon Bohman? Or a prophecy maybe….as it predates them by 20 years. That’s what I want to believe anyway, so it must be true……….
As with so many things, they’re many times more Punk than a lot of ‘punk’ ;-)
unfortunately the Bohman Ravjunk is singing about was a Swedish right wing politician. Good guess though.
I don’t care what any of you say, Bohman Bohman is a funny, catchy song…sure, I don’t understand Swedish, but I can hear the intent…very nice post on an excellent site!
Thanks Doug, at least one none Swede got the greatness of Bohman Bohman.
Their haircuts on this 7″s front-sleeve…look cool, a bit like this: ###:=#D
Their 1st LP has its moments-wasnÂ´t a kind of “Best of” CD released ( by the band ) awhile back ?!
