MY FAVORITE SWEDISH BANDS
- •The HellacoptersThe MC5 + Kiss + Motörhead = Action Rock. Blaring solos, pounding drums, and more fire than your ears can handle.
- •The Backyard BabiesPunk rock + glam with a double down on the sleaze. Check out the "Total 13" album, and be blown away
- •Union Carbide ProductionsFormed in the mid 80s as a meeting of Stooges-esque Rock 'N' Roll and psychedelic garage. Absolutely amazing.
- •The (International) Noise ConspiracyFiercely political socialist garage rock that will also make you dance. They sound like a fucking revolution.
- •The HivesFun, loud, fast garage punk. The vocals scream and the guitars cut right through. I'm partial to the "Tyrannosaurus Hives" record where they channel Devo.
- •The Soundtrack of Our LivesBorn from the ashes of Union Carbide Productions, The Soundtrack of Our Lives went full throttle on the psychedelia. This is a mind altering substance.
