Time for some hard homosexual nazi synth punk out of Sweden. Happy Funeral is about the day they buried Hitler. And Fantastic speaks about the greatness of Mein Kampf. All hail the new downs syndrome.
Label: Kitchoons Plastiks
Are there any records from Sweden I don’t like?
This one was listed in the back of Peter Jandreus book with the description, “New Wave”. I guess New Wave means a lot of things to a lot of people. When applied to Kitchen and the Plastic Spoons . . . I want to live in your country, and marry beautiful Swedish girl !
Younger people tend to be more strict of what’s punk while we who grew up with it and was in the middle of the whole thing had/has a broader spectrum of what was punk/new wave. When I heard this for the first time on the radio there was no doubt it was just another punk record.
Dude, awesome stuff as always. I’ve been frequenting yer site for a while now and it gave me enough inspiration to make my own punk blog.
It’s small but I’m trying to add personal vinyl rips as well locals material and even DIY project intrustion.
Check it out, I’ve already got you linked so my friends out there maybe you could link me as well so I could start getting some traffic to my site.
email@example.com if you want to slag on me.
Oh, I love this one! Has anyone a spare trade copy?!!!
I must have it! Must!Must!Must!Must!Must!Must!Must!Must!Must!Must!
Let me know what you need.
This is actually much better than I remember. Hearing it again makes me wonder why I’ve never bothered to pick it up as I’ve seen it quite a few times. Is the flexi as good as this one as well? I’ve heard it, and just turned it off pretty quick, but maybe I’m more mature in my musical taste now…
I’ve seen this one with a second cover by the way, but I think it’s the same pressing, release year, label etc.
Forgot to say that good old Johannes recently saw a young punk in Gothenburg with Kitchen and the Plastic Spoons written on the back of his jacket!
Kitchen and The Plastic Spoons – Best Off CD
Will someone please post a new record?? I am sick of this one…
Beep! Wrong answer.
We need the correct answer and now!!!
New post for you Jay.
A welcome addition- especially since I’ve decided to limit my collecting only to “hard homosexual nazi synth punk out of Sweden”.
Wow, “Happy Funeral” is so great! How did I miss this one when you posted it almost 4 years ago?! My loss until now. Kinda reminds me of Red Asphalt in some ways but not all ways. Next I am going to listen to their “Best Off” comp CD…
Yeah it’s a bit like Red Asphalt. Glad you discovered something old that was new to you. Thought you’ve heard everything punk related from Sweden Tony :)!
LOL! I’m sure there is still a pile of Swedish stuff that is unknown to me. And of course the B-side of the Venerias “Monarki” 7″ is one I have never had to pleasure to hear yet…that is probably my biggest Swedish want. Not the vinyl of course just a rip of it…sigh
Reminds me of Lucrate Milk, some old french punk band that also defies the “strict” definition of “punk” (at least for narrow minded punks – In an ideal world those two words should never meet but………)
Have you ever heard about them ???
