Blago Bung - Kärleken & Döden MP 1981

Okay, now were getting serious. Today i am speechless but ill tell you about this anyway. This record were released by Venants Heartwork label based in Lund. Martti LeThargie (or Martti Soutkari, his real name) were an old friend of Henrik and played together in a couple off bands. After a sort of solo offshoot under his own name (single coming soon!) he started Blago Bung together with Jan Fornell and Kamilla Lindström although i guess several others played as they went along, among others one Träfrack (if anyone have some info about this guy id love to hear it. was he even real?). This was their only recording and its one of the best records ever. I bought it directly from the label when i started discovering the swedish new wave and was blown away by the beautiful music. The bass-synths and the quirky, original guitarplaying! This is a total unique effort in the history of music! Just listen to the track Förruttnelsen, a sort of cover but a cover of a poem by swedish author Erik Johan Stagnelius, a grim tale of one mans longing to be cast from this world into the arms of death and decay. And Soldis, about life in the summertime. Maybe some of you will find it to pretentious but thats the beauty of it. Blago Bung also have some songs on compilations wich i will post soon, and they actually recorded another album but due to record labels ignorance it never came out although Heartwork made some of it avaliable on their great weekly mp3 handout on their website. Enough said, for gods sake listen:

jag vet att dom har sina belackare pga sången men håller helhjärtat med - bung är bland det bästa! att dom delade replokal med garbochock,mina absoluta favoriter, är nästan.. ja jag vet inte vad.

men den här är ju faktiskt rätt lätt att få tag på... jag tycker nästan udda-materialet är värt en egen post. det osläppta från fenix...-skivan och dom grymma no wave-spektaklen från eldbegängelse. don't make me start ANOTHER bloody swe-wave blog:P

jo. jag funderar på att samla ihop allt från venantmp3orna med ett egenhändigt gjort omslag, inspelningarna är alldeles för bra för att försvinna i obskyriteten inom kretsen för oss som kikar in på hemsidan ibland. jag tänkte mest att detta kunde vara en introduktion till deras fantastiska musik.

sången är förresten asbra. både eldbegängelse och heartwork live klubb 2000 med fler bunglåtar kommer snarrt.

Träfrack är Jan Fornells pseudonym.
