THE CRIMSON SHADOWS: IT'S THE CRIMSON F****N' SHADOWS LP

Coming this fall on BBP in an extremely limited handmade version, and on coloured and regular black vinyl!

 

Mid 80´s Swedish neo garage teen punks the Crimson Shadows set the standards for the garage scene to come playing all original material in a time when most similar bands relied heavily on covers. They also understood that the clothes are as important as the music. During the short life span the Crimson Shadows released two self produced 45's, and due to demand a few more records were released after the demise. The second '45, "Even I Tell Lies", stands as one of the classics of the whole eighties garage wave. It's The Crimson F****** Shadows! is the definite collection of this legendary band containing a slew of horrific hits plus two previously unreleased tracks culled from a 1986 rehearsal tape.

 

THE CRIMSON SHADOWS: IT'S THE CRIMSON F****N' SHADOWS LIMITED HANDMADE WHITE LABEL LP

Super limited version of 50 white label copies with jackets handmade by the band. More information will follow.

THE SOUNDTRACK OF OUR LIVES: HOMO HABILIS BLUES LP

Coming this fall on BBP/1621! 

 

Swedish mantra sliders The Soundtrack of Our Lives dug deep into the backyard of rock history from day one. The five songs on their debut EP Homo Habilis Blues from 1996 move seamlessly through all sorts of sonic spheres without losing their timeless, distinct T.S.O.O.L. sound. It's mysterious and ominous and at the same time only rock 'n' roll. And we like it. Now the EP is finally released on vinyl just as God intended. The remastered songs sound better than ever and the album has been expanded with tracks from the legendary Romelanda sessions. The journey through time and space for the last really great rock band couldn't have taken off any better.

35880_1.jpgTHE MODERNS: SUBURBAN LIFE - LP with Booklet LimITED EDITION

Sweden's first and best mod-revival band The Moderns mixed the love of 60's pop with the intensity of punk and had the big breakthrough around the corner during the short but intense career, including support to Echo & The Bunnymen on their first English tour in 1980.

 

The band's first EP The Year of Today from 1979 is a classic. Along with the second single, songs from a couple of compilation albums and some completely unreleased tracks, here comes the definitive collection with The Modern's first lineup. The album is as nicely packaged, as the band, and contains an 8-page 12" booklet.

STRAITJACKET: DEMENTED PERVERTS  - LP with Poster, LimITED EDITION

Straitjacket with Freddie Wadling on bass and vocals was one of the first punk bands in Sweden. The first gig took place at a motorcycle club and at a gig shortly afterwards, the band was offered money by the organizer to leave the stage prematurely. The band split in the summer of 1978 and the members continued in bands such as Liket lever, The Leather Nun and Blue for Two.

 

Straitjacket never had time to make an album, but after searching in the members' stashes we are proud to finally release the mythical Gothenburg punks on LP more than 40 years later. The album consists of a collection of demos and a live recording from the last concert at the legendary club Errol's in 1978. Protopunk in a true sense.

STEAMPACKET: 1965 - 1968  -  with booklet , LimITED EDITION 

Stockholm-based Steampacket was formed in the autumn of 1965. After three gigs in Sweden in the spring of 1966, the band went on touring in England, discovered that there was already a Steampacket which included Rod Stewart, changed its name to The Longboatmen but called themself Steampacket II back in Sweden. The band released eight singles but oddly enough never an LP. Today, the singles are collectibles and Take her any time one of the 60s best Freakbeat / Garage fuzz tracks ever.

 

Now Steampacket's gems are coming together for the first time on LP. Studio recordings, live recordings and previously unreleased material.

THE ARK: RACING WITH THE RABBITS - EP Black and red vinyl

The Genesis of The Ark was this 1996 debut EP now released on vinyl for the very first time. The Ark EP, also known as Racing with the Rabbits, was recorded in 1994 and 1995 and released in 1996 and provides a unique insight into the early years of the band. The record is heavier and rawer than their future string of hits and there are prog references that wouldn't be so easily detectable later on. But the fundamental elements of their polished, bombastic and theatrical style is already in place and the title track would occasionally be part of the band's live sets more than ten years down the road.

Dungen II (LP)

With their second album Dungen moved from a sound deeply rooted in Swedish folk music towards more psychedelia and 70's pop. This missing link between the sparse debut and the world wide break through Ta Det Lugnt moves through 60's and 70's prog, psych, pop and folk with soaring flutes, woodsy violins, wicked fuzz guitars and frenetic jazz-drums.

 

The record was originally released in 2002 under the name Stadsvandringar and a slightly different version got a very limited vinyl release as Dungen 2. II collects all tracks from Stadsvandringar and Dungen 2 as well as a single-track never available on vinyl all remastered by the original producer Mattias Glavå.

 

Dungen's music has expanded sonic boundaries all through the 2000s and II lets you explore both the butterfly light side as well as the heavier introspective aspects of a groundbreaking, yet retrospective band.

bbp-071_lp_1512x.jpgCÉSAR VIDAL (LP)

Writing somber songs that you want to play over and over again or pop tunes that never comes off corny and singing them with perfection without sounding contrived takes a unique voice. César Vidal from Swedish psych/60s/garage/indie-act Caesars aka Caesars Palace has that voice and he makes it all look so easy.

 

The tracks on his debut solo album are ageless and could have landed softly into any decade from the 60s and onwards. There are hints of just about everything from jangly psych pop, British invasion, surf, shoegaze, lo-fi and punk, all delivered with the golden voice of a sad angel.

There are no fillers here, only killers.

Attentat were pioneers in the first Swedish punk wave in the late 1970s, along with bands like Kriminella Gitarrer, KSMB, Göteborg Sound and Ebba Grön. After more than 40 years on the Swedish rock scene, Attentat has never felt more relevant. With the new album "Punkhjärta" (Punk Heart) producer Mattias Glavå (Håkan Hellström, Broder Daniel, Joel Alme and others) has carved out a cleaner yet more raw sound but the fighting spirit, energy and sing along refrains remain. Attentat are still set on changing the future without forgetting their past and they are better, smarter, stronger and more fun than ever. They have nothing left to prove, but still do.

PRINCE OF ASSYRIA: 3RD LEVEL (LP)

Born in Iraq but raised in Sweden, Prince of Assyria stands with one foot in Baghdad and one foot in Scandinavian melancholy. As a Mesopotamian royalty sentenced to diaspora in an Astrid Lindgren saga, he builds longing bridges between East and West that has touched a dedicated fanbase far beyond Sweden's borders.

 

After six years of silence he is finally back with his album 3rd Level. Here Prince of Assyria dives deep right into the magic world of the 60´s and takes his songwriting and production to a whole new level. Playing almost all the instruments by himself the songs have been recorded and re-recorded over and over to catch the turmoil of the past years. Death, illness, breakups, homelessness - the songs on Third Level have gone through almost as much as Prince of Assyria himself.


And the result is enchanting.

Who Will Buy These Wonderful Evils Vol. 6

Since 2003 the Who Will Buy These Wonderful Evils-series has conducted archeological diggings in recordvaults and soundarchives constantly in search of hidden artefacts and smooth hits worth shining a light on again.

 

The Swedish 60's and 70's produced a mind expanding mixture of happy-go-lucky pop and feral grooves and way too many tracks didn't reach their audience, neither in its' homecountry nor the rest of the world. The Who Will Buy-series is on a mission to save a slice of Swedish pop-history from the grubby paws of connesiurs and collectors.

 

Vol 6 includes everything from Swedish Beatles-covers to mind melting freak outs. Quietly bubbling introspection, mysterious agent-pop, finger tapping cocktail lounge and sun kissed summer pop with its' shirt off.

Temple & Young (VINYL)

Producer/songwriter/artist Andreas Kleerup (Robyn, Neneh Cherry, Lykke Li, Teddybears Sthlm and others) team up with Andreas Unge, mean bass player/ producer having spent years in Africa working with Oumou Sangaré, Salif Keita, Cheikh Lô, Youssou N'Dour and others. The result is the electronica/ kraut manifestation Temple & Young.

 

After a road trip through Europe in an old Volvo packed with an arsenal of old instruments and recording equipment Temple & Young settled in a cottage in a rural village in the French countryside and turned the second floor into a studio where the duo captured the beating heart of an endless summer. While not swimming under the stars the duo mapped out their collective consciousness with driving, mathematical grooves in a land somewhere between 70s Du?sseldorf and 90s Manchester that oozes cheap drinks, club nights and love.

 

Temple & Young have made a timeless, hypnotic and mind-expanding space travel, here in a limited vinyl edition. Make sure to grab one before summer is over.

bbp-070_lp.jpgBjörn Olsson: Instrumentalmusik - att sjunka in i ... eller kanske försvinna till (Instrumental music - to submerge in ... or disappear through) (VINYL)

First solo project from wizard Björn Olsson, composer and producer (most noted for his close collaboration with Swedish superstar Håkan Hellström) and former guitarist / co-founder of Union Carbide Productions and The Soundtrack of Our Lives, flies like a watchful butterfly through time and space to land somewhere between krautrock, psychedelia and spaghetti westerns.

 

Recorded in the spring of 1997 in a house by the sea on the Swedish west coast - or is it in Oz, Neverland or on some distant planet? - he weaves electric and organic threads from Ennio Morricone, Popol Vuh, Brian Eno and Bo Hansson into a ghostly, atmospheric, focused and dreamy ambient tapestry to submerge in ... or disappear through. A lullaby eternal like a granite rock, yet fleeting as a ripple over a glittering ocean.
