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!
