This LP compiles all the tracks officially released by the Crimson Shadows in the 80’s. Full story, record covers and a bunch of unseen photos. These guys were the absolute definition of the term “mayhem”!
The Crimson Shadows were among the very few and the very first that took on garage punk not only in Sweden but Europe in general, the first half of a suck ass decade like the 80s. They had three at least talented song writers (Peter Maniette, Jens Lindberg and Mans P. Mansson), that more or less on ’em the whole rock n’ roll scene of Sweden lean on, with later bands like The Wylde Mammoths, The Highspeed V, The Livingstones and continue to these days with The Maharajas, The Maggots and The Strollers!
They were drunks to the bone, savages and terrorists not only in their music but in lifestyle. There are lots of stories about them on how raised hell and gave the creeps in every single band of that scene or every single show!
All the tracks have been taked from the original master tapes.
Nice gatefold sleeve.
Released by Groovie Records (2011).
