A Real Cool Time Revisited: Swedish Punk, Pop & Garage Rock 1982 - 1989
Back in 1985, the compilation album A Real Cool Time: Distorted Sounds From The North defined the sound of Sweden s garage rock revival. Bands like The Nomads whose song A Real Cool Time lent its name to the album The Creeps, The Shoutless and The Watermelon Men showed that Sweden was Europe s garage-psych hot bed. This was recognised in 2005 when Rhino’s Children of Nuggets box set featured many of the Swedish bands. Now, for the original album’s 25th anniversary, we have A Real Cool Time Revisited, the definitive Swedish overview of the country’s garage rock phenomenon. New fans of the 60s sound will find plenty of appeal and lustre in this Swedish jewel. Compiled by Swedish music maven Ulf Lindqvist, A Real Cool Time Revisited is the perfect companion piece to Do The Pop, the history of the Australian 80 s garage punk and Rhino’s Children of Nuggets box. The Swedish bands played alongside their Paisley Underground counterparts The Dream Syndicate, Green On Red, The Rain Parade and were just as vital as their Australian counterparts The Died Pretty and The Hoodoo Gurus. With notes by Mojo magazine’s Kieron Tyler (who also worked on Rhino’s Children of Nuggets box), and a full scene-setting essay and artist profiles by L-P Anderson, journalist for Sweden’s Sonic magazine, this era-defining set is rounded off with pics of every original single cover
