Bakrus – Nettan/Lamrock 7″

Bakrus were not a punkband, but rather five incredibly handsome raggare from Asa (yep, the same town as Glo, Oss and Shas) that released two 7″ where this is the second one, and the only one worth hanging in the fir-tree. The a-side Nettan is the sad story of a poor girl who’s boyfriend died and she became a speed addicted prostitute. Of course the story ends with poor Nettan dead in a dirty bathroom. Very moralizing boogie rock and so fucking Swedish. Oh sorry, I forgot to mention that the song sucks despite the incredibly funny lyrics, and for those of you who don’t understand Swedish you can follow the story in the pictures shown on the back of the sleeve. And while talking about the sleeve it’s impossible to avoid mentioning how incredibly ugly it is in every single way. It makes GG’s early artwork appear as fine art in comparison.

Lamrock (cock rock) was included on KBD 51 and it’s a great smasher, and could just as well been a song by  TT Garderob 100 or Goteborg Sound (and if you take a closer look at the cover art you’ll even see one of the TT beer cans that gave TT Garderob 100 a part of their name). I guess the heritage from football choirs, classic rock and especially Status Quo was too hard for the Gothenburg scene to escape. Something else that’s hard to escape is the fact that this record was somehow sponsored by the removal company Centrum-Expressen who put their logo on the sleeve. What were those guys thinking? If I ran a company I’m not so sure that putting my logo on a record with songs about the hard life of a prostitute, and the story about a sad sod who desperately wants to loose his virginity would be the greatest idea ever. But what do I know, maybe they got loads of new costumers after this record came out? If anyone knows the story behind this, please let me know.

    Yes, Martin, you’re right. “Bettan” were la sådaer.
    But …….

    (“””Lämrock rules !! “””)

    and I’m ashamed to say that I’ve never heard it until now.
    But on the other hand it didn’t get any attention back then either.

    Now I’m going to put on “Ironi man” or “Ebony and Ironi”.

    Lamrock kick ass!
