This is a re-post from July the 10th 2006. Added more scans, new rips and Lordagsurrkare. First posted by the TV Eye // Drummer.
Weigtlifting punk with the guitars mixed really weird, just pan between left and right speaker and you’ll see what will happen. Of course this is a great record, especially the song Lordagsurrkare with the deadpan and monotone voice the singer Jim Johansson uses is the chorus. If you think his voice sounds a bit familiar there’s a perfect good reason for you to think so, as he sang in the equally great band Razzia after he was fired from Urrk. And in case you wanna know, he was kicked out of Razzia as well after hitting the drummer (according to his comment on the Razzia post linked to above). And he’s not the only familiar name in the band, as guitar player Claudio later on joined The Moderns (who’s first E.P. is in the posting cue). Unfortunately I don’t know if he was fired as well.
Our proud country’s capitol, Stockholm, where Urrk came from, may be a big city in a small country, but the in-breeding is well spread no matter what. I remember Peter once wrote that Stockholm’s punk bands weren’t as great as the bands from Linkoping or Gothenburg, but in this case, and many others, I beg to differ. And I’m sure Ian will agree with me, as he wanted a re-post of this one.
I find it a bit interesting that neither this E.P. or Razzia’s 7″ have any info about the bands, contact address or any other useful information whatsoever. Maybe they just wanted to stay anonymous and not get any fanatic fans, but who knows?
