Raped Ass # 1, Sweden 1983
Here is another zine from Mikael Sorling's Turist i Tillvaron blog. The following is my translation of his original Swedish-language blogpost.
25 years ago "Ägget" and Tomas Jonsson released an almost briliant compilation cassette called Raped Ass, perhaps one of the best 10 Swedish compilations ever. The list of bands included is impressive: Nyx Negativ, Avskum, Destruktiva Liv, Kurt i Kuvös, Rolf & Revoltörerna, Sötlimpa, Missbrukarna, Asta Kask, Strawdogs, Sune Studs & Grönlandsrockarna, Moderat Likvidation, Svea Rikes Hjältar, Forbudt Ungdom and Sabotage 81. All in all 39 punk-hits.
As if this achievement was not enough the compliers of the cassette also cut and paste together a fanzine that came with the cassette. In the fanzine Ägget and Jonsson wrote about The Fits, Dirt and Moderat Likvidation among others. And in the review section Crass is celebrated, Abrasive Wheels and Misfts as well, but Misfits were in for some criticism for their "satanistic lyrics". But most interesting is when Jonsson himself writes about his band Anti-Cimex.
