N-liners – S/T E.P. 7″


From Uppsala, the same town as Rune Strutz came N-liners who managed to record some amazingly razor sharp punk rock without breaking a sweat. Incredibly tight and well produced music in a equally good looking sleeve. Feel free to go down on your knees and thank me for this one as it will change your life forever. I’m positive Erich will love this one as they have a teeny weeny touch of NWOBHM before that genre was even named. And the encouraging words of wisdom on the insert can be quoted by anyone at anytime and always make people astonished. As a few of you lurkers here don’t master our Nordic lingo perfect yet I’ll translate a line for you, just so that you can see that these boys both walked the walk and talked the talk; “You don’t need shitty equipment to do a lousy recording”. Huh, how about that? Sums up everything you’ll ever need to know in just one sentence.

N-liners appeared with 2 more new wavey tracks on the nice compilation 018- 10 grupper in 1980 as well as 2 more boring songs on the Pop Job comp the same year. Anyway, enough yapping from me as I can feel my grammar getting worse with each new sentance and let N-liners bring back the fuss in music.

  1. I have never, ever heard of this EP before- thanks so much for posting! There is nothin for me like hearing some unknown Swe-punk. I long for the day when I will be able to hear that damn Framfor Flotet 7″. Sigh…

  2. Glad I found something new for you Tony, and hopefully there will be some more new stuff for you in the future, but first some international crap.

    More international crap please! Knulla! I like this one, especially Knut. Is it me, or does that snare bit in the intro seem like it goes one brilliant measure longer than it should?

  4. If I really could read your mind I would have posted this one sooner!

  5. Someones mother says:

    There is no Framför Flötet record. Just a bad joke.

        Incredible! Is this for real? Really?

          Hello, there is something fishy with this record. It was supposed to have been released in 1983. Prior “The Encyclopedia Of Swedish Punk 1977-1987 – book” not even the hard core collectors and traders have heard about the record and still to this date I have meet no one who have seen the record. Assuming it was released in 1983 and assuming the age of the bandmembers was between 14 and 25 we can assume that the members is born between 1960 and 1971. They should be 40 to 50 years old today. The record is refeered to Kiruna Sweden (at least recorded there). A few band members name is very unique and at least for one there is no one born in Sweden (unless they have protected identity) according to the Swedish’s tax authorities. Calling some other names around sweden that apprears on the record they claim they name not played in the band. Further more – culture journalist living in Kiruna at the time has never heard about the band. And this is a small town with like one high school.
          Strangly enough the first song is called “Tro inte allt du läser” with translate into “Don’t beleive anything you are reading”. Framför flötet is also a joke with Bakom Flötet meaning that you are a little bit stupied.
          I would love that this record exist – what a cool thing – but it still need to be proven.

    Fantastic record Martin! You rule!!!

    Well, well. Whattayaknow. Nice to see some interest in the old record. N-liners was part of the punk movement in Uppsala around 1978-1982. We made a few recordings during these years. The old original studio tapes was recently found and we’re thinking of remastering the old recordings. More info on the Uppsala punk scene here: http://tinyurl.com/yeptovx

    Recognition, at last!!!

    After N-Liners, some of us, including Mr Sandred who left the comment above, formed GQ, an experimental outfit that did some mixed stuff, including some trash-artrock that might entertain some of you punk fans, check out
