Face A / Face B

Herraids was a band in the Lindköping region with Peter “Sveden” Swedenhammar from Raped Teenagers on vocals and guitar, Mikael “Löken” Karlsson from Rövsvett (Drums) and a bass player called Jögga. The band was inspired by bands like Koro and the Boston hardcore sound. This tape was also released on Deflagration tapes in France. The possible logic is that the other band, Rapt was from France.

For those that have not heard Herraids (this is actually two demos combined on side A) this tape is a real gem. Move it to your iPad as soon as possible. Herraids is a reference to a popular band called Herrays which was 3 gay brothers (or at least said to be) and this was in the middle of the time when a lot of peope was terrified of Aids. The name Herr Aids (Mr. Aids) is not anti-gay, rather the opposite.

There is a rumour that Signaler Från Ovan will release this tape (Herraids side) on vinyl. That’s a good idea!

By the way, I just got the following info from Sveden about the tape label SPUNK Tapes : “Fetvadd/Spunk was Mikael Karlsson-Wigstrand and Magnus Grehn. In the beginning of Spunk I think Rebellen was involved too.”

      Yeah, as we moved to another site, we have some problems with some files that contain the Swedish letters å, ä, ö. We will work on the database to have it up running soon

Got something to say?
