Lonely Hearts

Another stunning rare FWOSHM single from 1984. Lonely Hearts hailed from the bullshit town of Boras, a town known for sheep and mail order businesses. Unfortunately the band only managed to eke out this record before singer/bassist Christer Eriksson died at a rather young age. The a-side is a steely scorcher called simply "Lonely Heart," and while the b-side is a decidedly less rocking AOR number called "One More Night" it is still an enjoyable enough song. These kids had chops and pep, sad they never did more.

The cover seems to be a take on a picture in the artwork of Nick Drake's "Five Leaves Left"... That's quite a distance musically.

Wrong Borås is more known for beautiful Greek women (its actually true). When my father was a young lad living in Göteborg him and all his mates used to travel to Borås every weekend cause of the beautiful Italian immigrants that wored in the clothingfactories back then. Borås actually had 3 girls on every man back in the days....... I was born to late i guess

I have come to love this more than anything I've downloaded from the hearse, which is saying quite a lot. Thanks, Aesop!
