Jack Hammer - Down the subway

Down the subway Love ladder Well pleased to pick up this yesterday from a bargain bin of 45s. Especially since another dude and a dealer pulled some serious rares from it before I had a go. Very rare and sought after sweden only-45 with 2 quality northern sides. Not really my thing this, so if you want to trade it for some cool LP, get at me.

Cozy Square

Cozy Square The seventh seal This is actually a quality album that seems to be little known, rarely turns up and I think it deserves more attention. Solid fusion jazz with a soul-jazz feel and one foot firmly in the melodic swedish progressive heritage. The members look fairly geeky and the band name brings images of 70s daycare centers to my mind but never mind that. The track Cozy Square sounds like a lost Grant Green song and The Seventh Seal like a jazzed up Ragnarök, and damn good to in my opinion.

Om igen

Noll, Noll, Noll

Typical 80s sounds from this anonymous swedish group. There is a LP called Mantraction that has these 2 tracks on it. One boogie number and a more laidback groover. Clearly above average in my book.

Liza - Brazilian Express + bonus break

Brazilian Express


Kind of cool Danish LP that spans between many styles of rock - from progressive to jazzy. Main tune for me is the driving jazz-rock track Brazilian Express, with breakdown and all. Diggers sweat this mainly for the heavy intro breakbeat on one of the less interesting tracks but its included here as well for those who are in to that.

Artie Skeppard - Im the boogaloo man

Its been a long time since last post, my kids have been keeping me busy but its time to get my blogging on again. First out is this boogaloo track recorded and released in sweden. Same label as the Stardust LP. Not my kind of music but this seems to be getting spins in some circles.

Birgitta Yavari - Det är svårt för ett ägg att bli en fågel.

Short but sweet, this trippy and funky song about a egg is from a xian musical LP on the same label as the Ingmar Johansson LPs .

Björn Gärdsby - On The Line

This great Toto-esque blue eyed modern soul track is a real find for me. A pretty much ungoogelable, private pressed swedish LP from 1980. If you know anything about this, let me know!
