I just realized that I haven’t posted a single Swedish record in December, so here’s a treat for all of you who keeps begging us for more, more and more punk from the homeland of social democracy.

Trogsta Trask released their one and only 7″ on the same label as the mighty Missbrukarna, who they insult by calling them “toy-punks who runs around in the forrest” on the back of the sleeve, where they also backstabs the label and encourage us to not buy this record as they won’t get any royalties. Now I feel really bad for buying it, so if anyone wants it, please e-mail me.

Urban who played bass and sings on the record later on joined forces with Rolf from Missbrukarna in the garage band Bangsters as well as playing with everyone from Wanda Jackson to Sven Zetterberg. He’s got a myspace site if you wanna bother him, but you’ll have to find it yourself.

    This is one fine punk rock record!!

  2. Keith says:

    Very cool. Too bad they only released one record like so many other bands. Good to hear all of the bands I’ve been reading about in the Encyclopedia of Swedish Punk (although there is nothing in there on a lot of my favorites like Noise, Docent Död, Strindbergs, Heartbreak, Imperiet, etc).

    Ubbe!-I will get you, you little fucker!!!!!!! Had forgotten about that “toy punk” thing!/A Missbrukarna boy.

  4. Ian says:

    B-side is a bit weak, but the A-side is great

    was quite early (mid 1990-ish!)on a B.S. A/C €URO, with both songs!

  6. RR says:

    They also had a tune on a comp.tape from the same label.Total pop that one.

    I noticed there are a lot of Swedish songs about barns: “Sommarbarn,” Kriminella Gitarrer’s “Hitler’s Barn,” the band Branda Barn, Vacum’s “Plastbarn.” Toss in the Traste & Superstarana’s “Traktor” and a foreigner gets the impression Swedes are preoccupied with farm buildings and machinery. Did the idiocy of rural life pervade the country in the late 70s/early 80s?

    Even today in the US, a hick ideology dominates the country, except in the cultural capitals: Tampa, Milwaukee and Las Vegas.

  8. Keith says:

    Mamma Pappa Barn by Ebba Grön, Kvasibarn by Strindbergs, Guds bästa barn by Docent Död and Attentat, Streberbarn by Garbochock, Sveriges styvbarn by Göteborg Sound, etc etc….. Maybe if barn meant child it would all make sense??????? (yeah, I’ll fall for it).

    Traktor is way too damn long and not very good, but it’s kinda funny for the first minute. 9-23 is amazing though, so they are forgiven….

  9. RR says:

    Actually the reason this single was released, was that Trogsta Träsk won a rock contest and the first price was a singel on Forsa Studio records.
    By the way- lotsa barns round were the Trogsta boys lived!

    Wonder if you still have the EP to give away or to sell?

    • The Flakes // Drummer says:

    They played in their old hometown Hudiksvall yesterday.Very pop!! New songs! And “Pelle i skogen”! And they did Paul Collins (Nerves,Breakaways,The Beat) “Walkin out on love” as an extra number, but with swedish lyrics! Fab!
