v/a - Punksvall CD (2003)
All the punk 7”s released in the Swedish city Sundsvall 1979-1980 on one convenient CD.
It’s all first wave punk/postpunk here and not everything is great but the nostalgia level is high.
The best band here is Massmedia with their sloppy and aggressive attitude. Their song “Das Jazz” is one of the best Swedish punk songs ever. Two of the members later started Huvudtvätt/Headcleaners.
Other bands worth mentioning:
The Same - the first punk band from Sundsvall with their only recorded song. A true classic!
Vacum - quirky punk with almost spoken vocals.
Invasion - quite poppy and nice.
Over all it’s a great compilation with some of the most important releases of the time.
