A long time ago I posted the Vertex’ second 7″ and told you that their first one was great as well, but that I sold my copy when I was younger, dumber and in need of money. Luckily I’m smarter, richer and a lot prettier now that I’m slightly older, so I found myself another copy of this modtastic E.P.
Tonight the sky will be ours is a classic in Sweden’s mod community as it was included on the mod/garage compilation “The roots of Swedish pop vol.1”, and the other two tracks should be regarded as classics as well after this post! When you were my baby sounds very 6T’s, and could just as well be a left over from Tages, the Lee-Kings, Flippers or another Swedish band from the century before punk. The bass heavy last track has aÂ very odd bridge, or whatever it should be called 1.41 into the song, where the song more or less stops and the bass changes the tempo in a very odd way. I love is though, just as much as I love the “stick-out-your-tounge-and-sing-nanananana” part thereafter.
