BUGS - Bloody Mess EP 1979 + Computer Is No Loser EP 1980

It seems Swedish punk bands never fail to dissapoint me. The Bugs from Gävle prove this phenomenal - they made two records and both are awesome Killers! The young punks have recognized the punk spirit and formed without really playin' an instrument a band and that was a brilliant idea. The first EP is one of the best Swedish punk record ever in my opinion. Snotty, rough & aggressive while the Computer EP is different, with a little bit synthesizer, slightly poppy (melodic), catchy bass lines, very dynamic; don't get me wrong, it's not a powerpop one, just a little bit "softer" - I had both on my hard drive but Mister Fredrik sent me his rips years ago and the sound quality is much better as mine. You're like '77 punk style, this is a revelation. In 1984 the band split up. Songs on Bloodstains Across Sweden, Kick Your Mama's Ass (coming soon) & Vägra Raggarna Benzin 2 - So far so good.

- Huge Thx to Fredrik -
