•    Norway’s Firebeats, Inc. issued one album in the Sixties. Yet their rough-edged music is now recognised as amongst the world’s greatest. As one of the world’s most collectible exponents of ‘freakbeat’, original copies of 1966’s Firebeats, Inc. album now sell for $1000.

•    This first-ever legal reissue of their fantastic album is a belated opportunity to revel in one of Norway’s greats – one of the world’s greats. Twenty years before a-ha put Norway on the musical map, Firebeats, Inc. tried their damndest to do so. With an in-house songwriting powerhouse Yngve Bjerke, they were built for success. Yet opportunities to be heard beyond Norway’s borders were limited. A rarity for the era, Firebeats, Inc. was all original compositions.

•    RPM International’s expanded edition of Firebeats, Inc. adds their non-album singles and an outtake from the album sessions – collecting their complete 1964-1968 recordings.  

•    With liner notes by Norwegian music expert Jon Vidar Bergan, this is the final word on Firebeats. Inc.. Bergan is the editor and co-author Norsk Pop & Rock Leksikon, the definitive encyclopedia of Norwegian popular music.

•    This, RPM International’s initial journey to Norway, follows the label’s recent first Icelandic release: Poppsaga: Iceland’s Pop Scene 1972–1977. With Denmark, Finland and Sweden already covered, RPM International is the authoritative home for the greatest music from Scandinavia’s past.

•    This CD is released 21st April and will not be shipped prior to this date.
