Ah, that smell of kids in a rehearsal studio thrashing guitars, screaming their lungs off and blasting their drums: out of tune, stereotyped barre chords, but filled with energy and anger. The audio-quality of this rehearsal tape can be debated but it is the hardcore sound of my youth: sitting in a rehearsal with a recent formed band. These two gangs were from Stockholm and the tape is gift which came with the following letter from Groteska Taskar (translation Grotesque Dicks):

Hello, as you asked we were actually on the legendary compilation tape: BCT “I thrash, therefore I am”. It all started back in 1983. Johnny, Werner, Tommy and Bosse decided to leave their criminal carriers in Sollentuna (Stockholm, Sweden) and play punk instead. We met two punks from Upplands Väsby that also wanted to play in a punk band so it ended up in two bands: Groteska Taskar and Fiasko. The first rehearsals were in an old house provided by the city. That’s where this tape was recorded. The house was shared with other bands and a guy from the liberal party who got “honored” with a song (Hans Tengér) due to a conflict related to a lamp? if I remember it correctly. We did some gig in the Stockholm area among other with Mob 47, the Krixhjälters and Aggressive. A year later the band split up and Keja, Tommy, Thomas and Johnny formed Disrespect, but that is another story.

    I would love to hear it, sadly the tape seems to have some South American grind on it! Someone have possible overdubbed the tape at some time.

    Don’t mind. It is the right tape. I am confused and wrote comments about another tape. Sorry!

Got something to say?
