Lost Kids – Cola Freaks E.P. 7″

Here’s another classic, and this time from our beloved neighbours in Denmark. In my opinion this EP beats the Sods “Television sect” 7″ in every single way. Don’t really know why, but I never manage to understand why punk scums are so into Television sect. I’m not saying it’s garbage, just not that great. On the other hand, Lost Kids had it all on this short piece of wax; too many members, funny monster make-up, guitarist who’s doing annoying guitar stuff and solos all the time and a note by note cover of Alberto & Lost Trios Paranoias “Snuffin like that” in the song Radden dig. A bit too much in general, but still it’s AMAZING! Check out this cool video where they perform on a Danish pop TV show. Denmarks answer to the Rezillos when it comes to looks…?

The band had quite a long career with 4 7inches (this was their second) and 2 LPs before they put their instruments in the bin. The ones that I’ve heard are all great and worth tracking down.

    yeah cola freak is great cool old punk the band makes the lot of great records in punk power pop rock i think that is a cool record i remember,thank you kbd

  2. I agree that “Television Sect” is not that great and always wondered why it was on KBD #3 many years ago. BUT flip over the “Television Sect” 7″ and you get one of The Sods’ best songs with the wild “Military Madness”! Which I think ranks as one of the best Danish punk songs, at least for my years. Hey, I just got a new posting finally up on my site in these early morning hours before the kiddies wake up.

    As much as I don’t like the ghoulish make up (straight people were alarmed to learn that Glenn Danzig regularly took the wide part of the upside down cross), it is time to applaud Denmark. Now that that redneck Rasmussen is out of office, Denmark is unlikely to transform into the European equivalent of that hick state Arizona. We can only hope that the blond taking over is sexually attracted to the sort of people in the Plugz and that she legislates accordingly. Good post!

    Ah….the wonders of the interwebz…. I have never heard of this band until I went to some bmx blog and saw some edit where this dude sean burns had Cola Freaks for his song. The other two songs are kinda crappy on this EP, but I would of never heard of that obscure little single outta denmark
