STOCKHOLM HARDCORE 1983-1986


If this doesn't get your blood pumping then perhaps you should have your heart checked: a blistering six band whirlwind of 80s Swedish hardcore rammed onto one cassette. Sweden's finest are represented, legendary bands like MOB 47 and PROTES BENGT contribute jaw dropping tracks, but the tracks from AGONI and CRUDITY are nothing short of perfection (the latter is so fucking underknown and/or underrated, their shit blows my mind every time I hear it...so fucking fast, and the riffs are as close to perfect as one could hope for, flawless Swedecore).  Raw D-Beat chaos from DISCARD, the best fist waving madness this side of ANTI-CIMEX, and then the tape wraps up with three burners from R OJERS that are the roughest of the whole lot. I shouldn't really need to explain this shit or write anything about these bands, Sweden's contribution to hardcore has long been well documented by better wordsmiths than myself, and the genre has been analyzed to death for two decades and counting.  I know that (most) of these tracks come from vinyl releases, but there are a few that I've not come across, so download away and perhaps you'll get lucky.


I've split this up into three downloads, and hopefully that will not result in folks just burning the MOB 47 tracks...but if that's the case, then I suppose it's your loss, and me and my CRUDITY backpatch will just smile and drink beer.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the original comp tape only had 3 bands – Mob 47, Crudity and Agoni. The other bands were added to the CD/LP reissue years later. Whatever, this is the best skit ever.

GREAT blog, keep it up!

kangnave: i do believe you are correct, but i dont have a copy of "Stockholm's Mangel" to check these tracks against. either way, i'm more than happy that someone decided to include PROTES BENGT and the others on this version. thanks for visiting!

MOB 47/AGONI link should be fixed, worked fine for me, as did the others...

I believe that these PROTES BENGT tracks are actually from their "Bengt E Sengt" Demo from '86. Although that demo is usually listed as having only 12 tracks (there are 16 included here). Also, yes I believe the original "Stockholm's Mangel" comp. only contained MOB 47, CRUDITY, and AGONI. Not 100% positive though....Also if you've never heard the CRUDITY tracks you MUST check them out. An essential Swedish group!!!
