Quizz Kids has been posted here before as they had a song on the Live pÃ¥ Musikverket compilation, but here’s their own EP as well. It was recorded in 1979, which initially made me think it would sound like their demo songs included in this post, butÂ that was not the case. I have no idea what kind of audience they had in mind when they recorded the EP, but my guess is that they were trying to reach a wider audience then just the punks.
Fruitcake is a pretty boring reggae song that sounds a lot like The Clash did on Black Market Clash, while Tomorrow is a great punk smasher. The last track Suicide is a slow acoustic number, which left me totally blank the first time I heard it. None the less it’ grew on me over time, and is now actually my favorite track on the record. Give it a few spins and you’ll see that it’s actually a great song that sounds like it’s about to burst into some wild punk riffing anytime, but never does.
The two demo songs are more traditional punk, where Dax is my favorite, even if Cruising in my daddys car has a great and very stupid sounding chorus. Great and amusing impression of what raggare sounds like, and you can hear the other members laughing in the background if you listen carefully.
Bonus tracks (demo 1979)

“Fruitcake” really sucks! I hate that fucking song more than I hate fruitcake…hahahaha. Tyst for fan
Tomorrow belongs to me makes the whole EP worth it. Suicide is like 4 years before it’s time. So EMO! The bonus tracks are also ahead of their time! What a bass!! Total techno over here.
I guess everything they recorded was all about the bass! Really loud all the time, which is just perfect in my opinion. Very interesting production overall, and somehow reminds me of Scream’s This side up, which I think has one of the coolest sounds ever when it comes to well recorded records.
Still no more comments on this one! I agree with peter’s comment on the 2nd Vores 7″, you guys suck!
…I meant bad taste in music…
Tusan, attans ocksÃ¥, I meant you guys have bad taste when it comes to music.
Wow, all of a sudden this record has a bunch of comments. Sweet.
Yeah and hereÂ´s another one.
Hey Martin!!! Guess what?? Here’s another comment!! Yippee…..
The Quizz Kids bassplayer was Carl von Schewen who founded House Of Kicks/Sound Pollution, White Jazz Records and Wild Kingdom Records, who put out records by The Hellacopters and the lot ;-)
Micke RIP told me a funny story about the Quizz Kids song “Jag vill ha en glass” (“I want an icecream”). The song was originally called “Jag vill ha ett jobb” (“I want a job”) which was very politically correct back then. But “some members” in the band thaught it sounded too left wing and too much “prog-punk”, so they changed it to the more politically neutral “Jag vill ha en glass” ;-D
