Les Sinners (RIP) étaient un des meilleurs groupes de rock suédois des années 80 ! Et les suédois tout comme les australiens à l'autre bout du monde sont des spécialistes du genre ! Des Nomads , Bangsters, Wilmer X , Shoutless, Pushwangers , Bottle-ups glorieux noms d'hier aux Hellacopters, Dollhouse , Backyard Babies , The Lost Patrol d'aujourd'hui , le rock à haute énergie reste une constante de qualité de ce rock du nord !

En 1986 , c'est un label de la toujours très rock Toulouse (19 , Dig it! ... ) , Swamp records , qui sort ce qui sera le premier lp des Sinners ! "The original sin" , le bien nommé , se compose des 3 premiers simples du groupe sortis sur Teenage Kicks et Amigo le label qui propose aussi à l époque les excellents Nomads ! La série sera complétée par 2 titres figurant sur la compilation anglaise de très bonne tenue "Raw cuts " (Criminal Damage) consacrée au nouveau rock suédois ! Criminal Damage records sortira au moins 2 autres compilations Raw cuts : l'une consacrée au rock allemand , l'autre au rock français avec les Thugs , Scurs , Flamingos ...

Once upon a time five young men got together and started rehearsing in an air-raid shelter. Lots of energy, sweat, blood, rough guitars and love for the pure art of rock'n'roll went into making of The Sinners....
The Sinners, Lund's major contribution to the history of rock'n'roll, started playing in the winter of 1982-83. Prior to The Sinners, the members were involved in various punk and new wave bands without gaining more than local success. The Sinners did their first live appearance in September 1983 when they played support to Wilmer X at Fredman's in Malmö. They've been doing gigs regularly ever since and have secured a position as one of the most exciting bands from southern Sweden. In the very beginning they copied old Nuggets standards, but very soon they begun writing their own material. The first single "Open Up Your Door"/ "Echoes (From Your Heart)" was released in October 1984 on their own label Teenage Kicks. It was an instant success both in Sweden and abroad. It was pressed twice before it ended up as a collector's item. March of 1985 saw the birth of the second single "Won't Be Back" and a forceful version of the Elvis Presley classic "Suspicious Minds".
The interest for Swedish rock bands was at the time even bigger abroad than in Sweden, so in April 1986 The Sinners did their first tour abroad when they did 6 successful gigs in France and appeared on French TV and radio. This was also the time for the release of the third single "Hotshot"/ "I Won't Take That From You", which was a big favourite of the critics and Sweden's biggest daily paper named "Hotshot" as single of the week. "Hotshot" was also The Sinners' first video and was shown all over Europe that summer by Music Box and Sky Channel. In October 1986 the French label Swamp Records released a mini-LP entitled "The Original Sin" containing the first three singles and some other tracks. To promote this mini-LP The Sinners returned to France in January 1987 for a more extensive tour which also included gigs in Germany and Spain.
