FLÄSKET BRINNER 1971


This is a trip in wild jam based progressive Psych you won't soon forget. This is another cornerstone album when it comes to Swedish underground, real people Psych. Take Disraeli gears era Cream combine that with Grateful Deads 1968-69 era's wilder moves and include flute from Tull.. and top it off with some wild freaky jazz blow outs. This combined with that classic unique SWE hippie real people, underground vibe and you have an album that will blow ya socks off. These guys were top musicians and still they could combine that with a underground sound and vibe. Most guys like this fell victem to the high end studio progressive rock trap with plastic sounds that became the norm in the 80's, but not these guys..well their 2nd 2 Lp Fläsket 1972 is like that, the studio album atleast. The Live album is a keeper though. I've included "Grismakt"(Pig power) from that live album. Fläsket Brinner (trans: Pork is burning) first 2 tracks "Gånglåt"(trans: walking song) and "Tysta Finskan"(trans. Quiet Finnish woman) were recorded Live while they opened for Zappa. These tracks show case this bands amazing ability, passion and warm SWE psychedelic vibe in a way that will take your breath away to speak. The rest of the songs are shorter but just as good. This is a vinyl rip. There should be a Cd reissue now or a Cd boot or two. If you like this album I recommend you hear also Asoka (SWE) and Hurdy Gurdy(Den) they too played wild Hard psych like these guys. This band is another example of the greatness and uniqueness of the early 70's SWE Psych scene.
