ANDERS ÅNGEST

ANDERS ÅNGEST – ….. 45 rpm (SWE) 1980

 

Very rare Umeå vinyl single

This is THE classic Punk Album from Norrland…. From Umeå… this 7” was spinning on everyones turntables in the early 80´s up in southern Lapland. With the classic line of –

”Jag tycker du är en fotomodell och ikväll, får du tusen beundrare, aah aah aah aaaahh…. Vad ska jag göra med dem?”  freely translated as ”I think you look like a super model and tonight you will be having a thousand admirers… aah aah aah aaaahh… What shall I do with them?” -  this record became almost a lifestyle…

The mysterious Jan Balzar is making a classic spoken intro that doesnt make any sense now or then…

Anders Ångest was a punk group that was dangerous… consisting of some mean motherf**kers and they were for a short while dominating the scene up in the cold north. Only overtaken by Ebba Grön on a couple of classic visits…

This piece of vinyl is NOT easy to find in any condition any longer…BUT, a recent version of ”Flickan” was recorded by a Free Improv group in Stockholm- MAXCOLIC -  in the 90´s and will see the light of the day on  vinyl in  the near future.

CALIGULAS BARN

CALIGULAS BARN  – Pryl 1, 45 rpm (SWE) 1981

 

500 pressed, but only 300 survived when rehearsal spece was taken down…

 

 

A classic punk single from the amazing Caligulas Barn from Umeå / Holmsund. Hitting it hard… and still , after 30 years, two of the members ( Kollberg and Westin) are still active together in Umeå, in the asskickin The Most!

The beginning of the 80´s was an extremely vibrant time in Umeå with very many active groups experimenting with new forms for music (and politics), both within jazz and rock/ punk.

Years before the HC – scene was hitting Umeå hard with groups like Refused and related.

Caligulas Barm, Anders Ångest and The Sämst were among the most creative and pulverizing combos.

”Askungen” – classic!

 

Magnus Kollberg . guitar, bass and vocal

Erik Levander -  guitar, bass and vocal

Mats Westin – drums
