Here's the first Pushtwangers (mini) lp ! Recorded in 1984 on Blackboard & Chalk in Sweden and Closer Records in France.The Pushtwangers belong to the sweden 80's wave of rock garage in the same spirit than the Nomads, Hidden Charms, Bangsters, Creeps, Slammers or the Shoutless for the first two albums. Their third lp was a little different with more melodies and a powerpop side.
"Except for an awkward pronunciation here and there, it's impossible to tell that the garage this clean-sounding sextet rocked out of is in Sweden. Although the Pushtwangers use enough horns and strings on their energetic second album to do some serious commercial damage in spots, the group's roots are strictly '60s and '70s punk, something which sneery singer Nome and guitarists G-A. Krantz and M. Lundborg never forget. The contrasting blend of slick production, tight playing and raunchy instincts doesn't go for max stylee, but the effect is nifty nonetheless. (As is the racy front cover: the American edition has a peel-off day-glo sticker to satisfy the curious, while the Swedish original prudishly surprints an opaque black dress.)" Trouser Press.
All work on the covers by Max!
