Mandarines ‎– E.P. (1978)


November 22:nd 2012 – A couple of really good tunes

Mandarines ‎– E.P.

EMI – 7C 006-35586 – 1978- 7″

I just learned that this is a bootleg

Stockholm based Mandarines stared as Four Manarines and issued the Silver Son Johnnie / Ease My Pain seven-inch in 1977. The band bursted and Janne Andersson (guitar) and Jana Blüchert quickly created Manadrines. Janne did the singing and a drummer was hired. As a band the Manadrines did not do much than this. I like the Four Mandarines record and on this record I like the first track; Trust You. It reminds me of the type of punk-pop Ramones and the Brits did.

I found this record on discogs for more or less nothing. The sleeve is perfect the record has some noise – like groove wear.

    Glad you found it cheap as it’s a bootleg. Original pressing is on black vinyl and glued thick sleeve.

    Oh thanks, well it was 4 EUR so I guessed something was fishy. It also have an annoying distortion as you can hear ….I was not aware of any bootlegs – so thanks for the info

Got something to say?
