Quizz Kids has been posted here before as they had a song on the Live på Musikverket compilation, but here’s their own EP as well. It was recorded in 1979, which initially made me think it would sound like their demo songs included in this post, but  that was not the case. I have no idea what kind of audience they had in mind when they recorded the EP, but my guess is that they were trying to reach a wider audience then just the punks.

Fruitcake is a pretty boring reggae song that sounds a lot like The Clash did on Black Market Clash, while Tomorrow is a great punk smasher. The last track Suicide is a slow acoustic number, which left me totally blank the first time I heard it. None the less it’ grew on me over time, and is now actually my favorite track on the record. Give it a few spins and you’ll see that it’s actually a great song that sounds like it’s about to burst into some wild punk riffing anytime, but never does.

The two demo songs are more traditional punk, where Dax is my favorite, even if Cruising in my daddys car has a great and very stupid sounding chorus. Great and amusing impression of what raggare sounds like, and you can hear the other members laughing in the background if you listen carefully.

    Tomorrow belongs to me makes the whole EP worth it. Suicide is like 4 years before it’s time. So EMO! The bonus tracks are also ahead of their time! What a bass!! Total techno over here.

  3. Martin says:

    I guess everything they recorded was all about the bass! Really loud all the time, which is just perfect in my opinion. Very interesting production overall, and somehow reminds me of Scream’s This side up, which I think has one of the coolest sounds ever when it comes to well recorded records.

    Still no more comments on this one! I agree with peter’s comment on the 2nd Vores 7″, you guys suck!

    The Quizz Kids bassplayer was Carl von Schewen who founded House Of Kicks/Sound Pollution, White Jazz Records and Wild Kingdom Records, who put out records by The Hellacopters and the lot ;-)
    Micke RIP told me a funny story about the Quizz Kids song “Jag vill ha en glass” (“I want an icecream”). The song was originally called “Jag vill ha ett jobb” (“I want a job”) which was very politically correct back then. But “some members” in the band thaught it sounded too left wing and too much “prog-punk”, so they changed it to the more politically neutral “Jag vill ha en glass” ;-D

    äntligen en sökträff på denna plattan!
    Hittade denna för 1 kr i Gbg (toppskick) för ett tag sedan. Dessutom signerad av sångaren Peter Fichtel. haha.
    Fantastisk EP. Jag syftar visserligen mest på låten Tomorrow.
    Detta är punkrock när den är som allra bäst. Enkelt och rak på sak. Skränigt och härlig DIY felling på inspelningen.
    fantastisk helt enkelt! tack för dom andra 2 bonusspåren!
