The first set up of Kriminella Gitarrer formed in September 1977 and disbanded in July 1978. During this time they recorded two classic 7inches: Vardad kladsel and Silvias unge. It’s raw. It’s primitive. It’s sloppy. It’s fantastic! Scanned the lyrics for the swedes so they know how great punk lyrics are written.
U gotta luv it!
If you like this you gotta check out the Final Solutions covers on “Return to The Motherland EP” that really kicks ass!!!
What a mindblowing record. After all these years it still sounds great to my ears every time I listen to it. “Vardad Kladsel” is probably my favorite Swedish punk song… right up there with “Absolute Ruler” by the Rude Kids, etc.
Yet another good 7 inch with so few responses. This is familiar from Bloodstains Across Sweden.
Shit. It was the other Kriminella Gitarrer 7 inch that had the song Sylvias Unge that was on Bloodstains Across Sweden.
peter, is this a home made lyric sheet?
Yepp it’s a home made lyric sheet done by Packe :).
Zeroxed from Noncha Allt fanzine, right?
I canÂ´t remember which fanzine I took it from but itÂ´s not Xeroxed…ItÂ´s selfmade on my motherÂ´s old typewriter in the mid 80Â´s and then maybe Xeroxed – RARE AS HELL! – thereÂ´s only 1 made…(you stupid recordcollectors) :)
That’s a question for Packe cause that I don’t know.
Why does this record sound better here than on the back to front comp?
Probably cause I ripped it directly from my copy without altering the sound.
I can’t believe that this stupendous bucket of noise has only 13 comments, while a totally mediocre band – Skrewdriver – get all the attention in the world. Skrewdriver only made one great song and they ruined that 7″ by shitting on it with a straight stones cover. Even the US 60s garage bands knew how to deal with rolling stone scum: steal their riffs and drum fills (that they robbed from black people), change the lyrics and completely mangle it all into oblivion.
You’re an idiot!
Yes. I am an idiot. I am proud to be just like Iggy, while you yourself have the distinct brogue of a moron. This place is for idiots ONLY so vete a la chingada!
Holy shit! I was just on Behjan’s old site (R.I.P. champion), and I saw his review of this record and in it he mentions a KG reissue LP with unreleased tracks and demos! Anyone got it? Does it shred?
i was never able to find a copy,but these guys had “it”!
I don’t yet know the superior language, but I always sing this as “vardad kladsel coming from my ear!”
I try to repress my tongue-and-cheek homophobia, I really do(!), but who is fudge Packe(r)?
Hey if anyone wants to hear some early demos from these geniuses just click on this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_qrYNAUwr8
