ARROGANTA AGITATORER- Arrogans 7″EP (Dishonor Records, Sweden, 1983)

arrogantaagitatorer_frontarrogantaagitatorer_backimg_0269img_0270aa_vinylaaa_vinylbPlain and simple: One of my most beloved swedish Hardcore 7″EPs. Lots of power – LOTS! Great fast riffing and and an excellent singer. And one english and one swedish side!! I used to have a demo tape of ARROGANTA AGITATORER too, but I couldn’t find it anymore.

Lyrics are on the, cough cough, dumber sort, but hey, it’s the punx! As for the music, my favourite pick would be the impressive “Tre ton trotyl” (something like “Three muggahchuggah idiot”?). How could such a lovely and small country produce not only so MANY punk & hc records, but also so many (seemingly) hateful pieces of vinyl? What was wrong in Sweden of the 1980s?
The actual track order on the vinyl of the b-side is not as indicated on the sleeve; I fixed this.

Short post for short people. Enjoy!

  2. I love when bloggers have to thank themself! Then you know you have posted something awesome that others dismiss. Like myself. I really wanted to like this but could never get into it cause of the low mix of the drums, especially the snare. Used to have a ton of these up till the mid 90´s when I traded them away.

    This is better than the Raped Teenagers, but not as smooth as Abba!

  6. no way better than Raped, this wasn´t as good as I thought it would be. Sounds like something Babs would have put out on Uproar.

  7. Right Said Peter!

    Yes, this EP is much better than anything RT put out, because it seemed like they tried too hard to sound hardcore on their first EP. Btw, this Arroganta Agitatoerer EP is posted on Brian Sayle’s site and it says that the drummer hated the recording so much that he refused to pay his share. What a fucking dick!

  8. Believe it or not Erich, but I really like this EP. Glad you reminded me of it as it was way too long since I gave it a spin, and now I got it as MP3s as well.
    Thanks for sharing.

  9. “…Brian Sayle’s site and it says that the drummer hated the recording so much that he refused to pay his share.” HA HA HA I salute him! Why pay for something when you don’t participate?

  10. But didn’t he participate? He played the drums, after all. Wasn’t he involved in the engineering / mixing?

  11. Would be fun to hear the story from the drummer. Didn’t he get to hear the final mix before it was sent off? Still it’s funny how they just didn’t give a shit about the drums in the mix.

    About this “…because it seemed like they tried too hard to sound hardcore on their first EP…” yeah that was a real problem with all the RT records. That’s why we had a nice looking tree on the first EP just to show everybody how hardcore we where ha ha ha.

  12. Yeah, that’s what I meant. Unless he didn’t have a say in the mixing or something weird, I can’t see why he didn’t want to pay his share.

    Funny – I never even noticed the drum sound on this EP before. I just thought, well, a regular HC production from 83.

  15. Dear darling clementine now you have to make up your mind. First we tried too hard to be hardcore and then we wanted to be too much like UK peace punk. Please make up your mind cause it really confuses me now what RT was all about.

    I think it’s funny how people with midget brains always stays anonymous. Thanks to the internet they can spew out their complex in the opens.

    But as long it’s helps them getting well from their mental illness I think it’s good.

    Hugs and kisses to you :).

    This is an awesome 7 inch. Killer hardcore with a good sound. There are tons of great records from Sweden and this is among the better ones. This one may not get as much attention but that doesn’t mean anything.

  22. By itself, it do not appear to get the job done as
    perfectly. I got tried numerous different
    work outs, lotions and undergarments, but none of them really did wonders.
    The product is not usually available in typical stores
    however, you can still get the product from their official web site instead.
