In Stuart Schrader’s spotlight of the first Sune Studs och Gronlandsrockarna 7″ he says “R.@.T., SSGâ€™s label, released their second 7″ in â€˜83, and the band also appeared on V/A â€œReally Fast Vol. 1â€ LP. Their tedious antiwar-core is less interesting than the first record and doesnâ€™t hold a candle to Shitlickers or Anti-Cimex, but there are still a few bits of out-of-tunefulness that bring a smile to this mug. Incidentally, the second release on their label was the infamously rare Nobby TÃ¥fjutt Band 7″. Anyone have one? I got a kidney to spare.
Do you want my address Stuart? I’ve got a pie in the owen, but no kidney to fill it with…
So, this is the infamously Nobby Tafjutt Band, which is actually SSG in disguise with two fun-loving football friends on vocals and keyboards. And yes, it’s just a joke from start to finish, much like the Tripple Cripple E.P. (that will be posted here as well). The main difference between this E.P. and T.C. is that the later one actually has a few great songs, while this one is a bit charming, but not really something I’ll put on the turntable too often. Having said that I might add that I really like the song “Kul att vara full” as it’s a pretty catchy power pop song despite the silly lyrics.
“FOA hela natten” and “Vinterkvall” are both covers of Swedish songs that were popular at the time, but of course with new “funny” lyrics.
I’ve seen this on quite a few peoples want lists, and it would be fun to know how many of them that will remove it after hearing it.
