ABSURD- s/t 7″EP (Bullshit Rekordz, Sweden, 1982)

Absurd_frontAbsurd_backAbsurd_lyricsThe missing link between Mongo Rock and D-Beat / Crust. Sweden’s ABSURD one and only EP, a masterpiece of its own!

Yeah, Peter over at Killed by Death had this posted a while ago, but it’s the right time now for a repost of this hard to find pearl of swedish socialdemocratic preacher pop. Released on ANTI-CIMEX’ Bullshit Rekordz label. 300 or 500 made.

    “Preacher pop” seems fitting considering the singer of this band became a priest.

    I didn’t expect much but these songs are really special. Punky, dirty, and with a great rawwwwww sound.

    Some body who was in the band after this 7″ told me the rumor about the singer and his job as priest is not true.

  4. Classic priest core from the home of gay arians. Anyway, the singer did indeed become a priest. He even whore his priest cloths during a reunion gig in the 90s. If you´re longing for some more scans:

  5. Yeah, Peter, that’s what I heard too about the singer. I can’t really see the curiosity in a punk singer becoming a priest – it seems like a logical step only. My copy of the EP didn’t have any funny extras included, like yours did. Guess it’s bad karma. 🙁

    There is no other drummer that can suck as bad as this guy…fucking horrible. I heard the drummer decided to become homeless and earn money on the streets by playing the Kazoo!! Thank god.

    What gets me is how hard some bands try NOW to duplicate such a horrific sound…WITH RECORDING EQUIPMENT ABSURD NEVER DREAMED WAS POSSIBLE!!!

    Nice solid (LOL!) ep…wouldn’t pay horror prices, but worthy of uploading on this blog!

  13. “Rape and murder your wife”, Pär? 😀 Expect another EXODUS post soon – will soon rip the live tape I recorded on the 1985 tour.

    Yep and “cut their flesh, to the bone, use a rusty knife” as well. The live tape should be great, Baloff in his prime.

    If you rip that tape, Erich, I will be in your debt for the rest of my earthly life and inevitable penance in hell. I’m also on the lookout for mp3s of any of the major Exodus bootlegs.

    Another Bonded By Blood highlight: Paul Baloff doing an extremely cheesy, multi-tracked, pitchshifted “evil” laugh RIGHT AFTER the line “if you think you can laugh you’re a fool!” in Piranha.
