Minx – S/T 7″

Jag är tillbaka, så säg, har ni saknat mig?

Minx were never the toughest band around, but they were still charming as hell, just like me. The band came from Eskilstuna and was one of the last records Swedish author, collector, playboy and Rovsvett fan Peter Jandreus had to track down when he was doing the final editing for the Encyclopedia of Swedish Punk. If you meet him, make sure to ask him how much he had to pay for his copy. It’s always a good thing to have a conversation about.

I can’t come up with anything interesting to write, but at least I’m back in business again, and I know I’ve been missed!

    The A-side is so so… B-side is much better, fast & tight. Remind me a bit of DEATH (Wisconsin).

    I too am back to business, so to speak, in that my holiday is over and I am again shuffling papers for the asshole that is my boss. (Martin, I will hold my tongue about the bANAL times we shared in that AZ bathroom.) I don’t know that I would give Jandreus’ left nut for this record, but it is as catchy as Princess Victoria is busty, which is fine by me.

    No, the last record I had to track down was that misprinted BESÖKARNA demo 7″. Ask me how much I had to pay for that one instead!

    Anyway, I still cannot understand why this is so hard to find. According to the band they sold all 500 copies and it isn´t t h a t fantastic, musically.

      I know what I got in trade for that Besökarna 7″, but it’s not the misprinted version if the songs on the label are the ones that are actually on the records, right?

      • Peter J says:

        Thats the beauty part! Makes me remember the first EP by UK crustcore band DOOM. Only 25 copies of the second pressing is in black vinyl! 20 years+ later its always listed on Ebay as “rare colored vinyl”. There must be more examples like this! Anyone?

        • The Flakes // Drummer says:

          Would love to hear the orig Besokarna demo 7″ since I only got the misprinted version. Can you post it in the future Martin and I post the misprinted one?

  5. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Welcum back Martin and I´ve missed you to say the least. Racing is an outstanding track while Overgivna tarar ain´t my cum of tea.

    Peter J.´s THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SWEDISH PuNk 1977-1987 states that members later played in other groups,most notably that band WHALE.
    Didn´t they have some quite commercial success 7-8 years ago,even in MTV…?!
