The Pain – Feel The Pain E.P. 7″

the_pain_frontthe _pain_back
A Swedish classic I guess as the Pain were a pretty early, as well as a popular band in Sweden and especially in Stockholm. The did their shopping in London and looked more punk than most other Swedish bands from this period of time in their leather pants, which makes me wonder why they choose a flowery wall paper as background on this 7″. Maybe they wanted to show that they were tough punks with soft hearts who liked flowers?

The band released another 7″ called “Next time ego” before they broke up, but in 82, a year after they broke up, came their best release as a cassingle called “Ambulance/ Churchyard” released by the RIP cassettes, which I’ve always thought was the same label as RIP records (P-nissarna, Warheads & Branda Barn). Looking at the tape now I just got a feeling that it’s acually not the same label after all. Anyone who knows?

I’v e got a feeling that Tony the punk business manager  loves this band in all their sleazyness, so Tony, this one’s for you, but please post something dude!

    I have only one question: why is this new to me? I mean: it’s fucking great. Snotty, angry, fast, tight, catchy and powerful. a perfect Punk Rock cocktail. And their version of “S.S.” is awesome. Thanks A LOT for sharing, Martin. :-)

    Glad you guys like it. As I said in the post, these guys were major (or at least semi-major) players in Sweden i the late 70’s, and I’m surprised they were new for you Chano. Me or Peter will post their other 7″ sometime soon as at least I like it slightly better than this one.

    Båda singlarna var svåra att hitta på den tiden, trots mina kontakter. EP’n var i särklass svårast, och jag inbillar mig att det kom en ny upplaga. Efterfrågan lär i alla fall ha varit stor.

    Det som jag ville säga, är att sångaren är förmodligen det sämsta någonsin som Sverige har producerat. Icke undantaget Eilert Pilarm. Mycket bra låtar däremot, vilket tilltalade mig och förmodligen många andra. Trots detta, så ger jag ett rött kort till sångaren.
