V/A - Punk Är Trevligt Jazz Är Farligt LP 1980

Todays offering to the gods is another compilation from Heartwork. The title means something like "Punk is nice, jazz is dangerous" and compiles a lot of great bands from the Lund/Malmö area in the south of sweden. TT-Reuter with singer/guitarist Venant does two great tracks, one livetrack from their first album, and one you dont find on any other album. The other songs is unique for this compilation as well. Another of Heartworks greatest bands, Garbochock, does two fantastic tracks and the first one is a real killer. Martti LeThargie in a pre-Blago Bung constellation also does two great tracks of minimal synth equality. The rest of the bands are quite obscure, except for City Kent, D.Kon were from Lund i think and existed only for a little while. Soldat Opiat were from malmö and i dont have any information about them at all. Both Hemliga Bosse (Secret Bosse) and Robert Widén released records on Heartwork but the tracks presented here are much better than their singles (though Widéns LP is really god pop-punk and will appear here later). Finally R. Metzenger where some of you might recognize Henrik Venants highly original vocals, i think it was a one-time band that only played a few concerts and then evolved into another loose band centered around Venant. All in all its a fantastic compilation, i mean, all the songs are pure masterpieces. Enjoy it:
