Anarki

Absurd, the Swedish punk band not the murderous teenage Black Metal band of the same name, released Blodig Stad in 1982. It's a sloppy, fun, mess of record. I think the title means "Leech Town," I could be wrong, but it does remind me that alot of you download stuff and don't bother to leave comments. What the fuck is up with that? Love Ya!

I don't often leave comments, cause I'm a shy girl. But thanks so much, Aesop.

I'm almost sorry to say it means "Bloody town."

(And I comment like a motherfucker!)

Troy said...

is their only full length,I vaguely remember seeing another Absurd post in your archive.Am I wrong? Also what do you know about the band Craft.I like all the albums i have heard though I can't find any lyrics anywhere.What is their story,I thought you might know if anybody did??

blodig stad = bleeding city.

That's how I always assumed it was, as in the context of war, city is bleeding...perhaps could be a deeper meaning to it, never even thought about it being anything other than literal meaning...

Anders said...

Hey, nice post.. "blodig" actually means bloody..

I'm not gonna download this one, but in response to your good natured bitterness, I'll say that your blog is balls awesome and I visit it regularly. I linked you on my blog that I'm working on, and when it's up, I'm gonna blackmail you 'til you return the favour.

Aesop said...

Well it would seem that my pandering for comments has worked.

Again my Swedish is wrong.

Troy, Craft is fantastic. I think their lyrics deal in very generic bm themes like Satan, War, Nuclear war...

Ionas, I'm gonna check out your site.

Aesop said...

...but I need a link to it.

Ionas said...

It's not live yet, but I'll let you know. Thanks man.

Slobodan Burgher said...

"bloody city" is literal meaning but without "bloody" meaning a curse

Krotpong said...

Dude, thanks... I mean, seriously. You're funny, and you spread the musical butter on my toast at breakfast. You rule!

brandi said...

I just love you and sometimes I simply have nothing to say. Surprising, I know.

Always, though, thanks for all your work on this blog. My harddrive is getting angry at me for all my downloading... I may have to get another one. I'll name it after you.

Currently I am fully enjoying the Moëvöt I dl'ed this afternoon while my mother -- who apparently sleeps less than I do -- watches some blonde twat go on and on about something on lovely Fox news.

<3. <3. <3.

Yeah, let me join the comment pile-on. I don't always leave comments either cuz I tend to not have anything witty to add...but goddamn dude, your blog has to be one of my absolute favorites! You have turned me on to so much good stuff the last few months. I truly appreciate it...

Anonymous said...

as expressed above, if i had to comment for every damn record i downloaded,,,,you would probably be sad.
i havent downloaded this one yet.
problably wont, i like the other absurd too much.

BankaKuk said...

Dude, did you download these rips from: www.kbdrecords.com? It's all the scans from that site in the .zip file anyway.

Aesop said...

No, I probably got it from SISK or a usenet. This record has made the rounds on the blogs. No, I don't own the actual EP, though I wish I did? I know some feel this is unscrupulous or lazy blogging but I personally feel that sharing great records eclipses people's weird sense of ownership of files. I tried to provide links back to the original source when possible.

jesse said...

great record, sounds like a d-beating Minor Threat! BONZER! The singer became a priest and apparently when they played a reunion show in the 90's he donned his old leather jacket over his priests frock!

Aesop said...

Jesse, you are a wealth of weird and much appreciated info.
