Jonas Almqvist the singer of Swedens Ladernunnan/The Leather Nun importance to the early Swedish punk scene can’t be underestimated. He published one the best early fanzines Anarki & Kaos. In the early 80s he hosted Ny Vag a punk radio show who aired 1 hour(or was it 2?) per week in the Swedish national radio channel P3. There you could hear the latest punk/hc acts like Bad Brains, Slobobans undergang, Attentat, Black Flag etc. Sometimes there where bands in the studio doing a live gig. For a young kid that show was as important as your daily play time with your willy.
Here’s the third release from Ladernunnan. Ensam i natt was on their debut “Slow Death EP” but I think this is different recording. Absolutely top from start to finish. Jonas voice raw voice is fantastic. The bass line in the intro is sooo catchy it will have you glued from that moment. A true classic. Here Comes Life is almost as good. No Rule recorded live at a gig opening up for Throbbing Gristle and Monte Cazazza in London 1980 sounds too much Stooges for me, in a not that interesting way. After this EP we went separate ways.
