Yet another band featuring the great Freddie Wadling on vocals(and synth on Tank pa doden by Terminalpatienten). This time it’s Rukorna. The most famous of their two songs here is Folkmelodi with their remake of the Swedish national song. But I prefer the second track Ruset. Infectious moog sound.
I was very fascinated by the photo of Freddie. He’s the bald guy to the right. “Wow and old man playing punk. That’s so cool.” I don’t know if he would’ve had the chance to join a band today looking the way he looked.
Terminalpatienten has to be one of the earliest bands that manage to put 13 tracks on to one side of a punk 7 inch record. I know Seems Twice(Australia) have 12 on their 7inch which is from 1980 too.
One of the most unique bands in the early swedish punk scene. Consisting of only vocals and guitar(Rukorna helps out on Han e) and with an unmistakable twisted humor found in the first wave of punk. My favorite track is still Elephantpojken which makes me laugh my ass off everytime. Check out Terminalpatienten on the web: http://www.terminalpatienten.se.
I bet Senap can fill us in on more information about these two Gothenburg bands.
