Miss Brukarna

Swedish punkers Missbrukarna's clever snark transcends the language barrier and this tape from 1983 gives you seventeen great, to-the-point songs in just over eighteen minutes. In my opinion, Krigets Gentleman is one of the finest Swedish hardcore releases. Kind of a shame this hasn't seen a proper release. Missbrukarna hailed from the bullshit town of Hudiksvall, a sleepy burg whose main attraction is the Stormbergmasten, a really tall television antennae, but if we've learned anything about Sweden from this blog, young folk from these boring towns produced some of the most compelling music ever made. Not sure I understand the presence of the odd pop song out, "Vi Blev Radd" but it can't hinder the power of this little pink tape. Some of you still may think that Swedish hardcore is the sound of punk to come, but it is not. Swedish hardcore is war.

I listened to Teenaqe Queers-Swastikas for Christ right after the Missbrukarna and it was enjoyment.
