TROUBLEMAKERS - 7'' Collection 1987-1998

This file includes three 7inches: the Göteborg EP ('87), the one-sided single Hjältarna Skålar I Blod ('89) and the Mammas Flickor EP ('98). You'll get good melodys, pace and classic Swedish punk rock'n'roll in the typical Gothenburg style, either way, it's exciting and powerful. Troublemakers were originally formed in Gothenburg in 1981 with members from Perverts (they often play "Ronka" live), Göteborg Sound, Attentat, Anti Cimax & TT Gardrob 100. After a while the band split up in 1991, but reformed in 1995. The band has been described as "kukrock" and compared with a runaway express train. While musical trends have come and vanished, Troublemakers have stuck with their straightforward rock'n'roll punk and Swedish lyrics. With roots in the early Swedish punk era, they have survived themselves and numerous of Swedish government ministers. Troublemaker’s trademark has always been integrity, joy and energy. In 2010, they were winners in the category of best Swedish Punk/Hardcore band on the Manifest Awards in Stockholm for their album "Made In Sweden". Seven full length albums, numerous singles and participation on various compilations have made Troublemakers to one of Sweden's most important punk bands. They've conquered five capital cities and have done more than 350 gigs around Sweden and in six European countries. They're still active and if they come on tour again I will not miss.
