Hey, that's well cool! I'll give it a good listen in a while.

The Nomads.. of course!
but all in all I prefer something like on this sampler:
Can't talk Swedish garage without mentioning The Hellacopters and The Hives.
Thee Gravemen - good trashy two-man band.
The Manikins, 1st album is really good. later stuff is pretty much the same as the hives
Wow, I totally forgot about the Manikins. Agreed. Great band!
Also, the Kissettes's back band is the Nomads. "The Kissettes A' Go-Go" is a pretty good single. (but it's pricey now!!!)
And Robert Johnson And Punchdrunks is(was) a rockin' inst band. They have some good tunes!

You're right. The Nomads did a single , included in Next Big Thing Magazine , in the Late 80's , as The Screaming Dizbusters. Of course , they covered "Next Big Thing" . "Yeh , I knocked 'em dead in Dallas. They did'nt know we were Swedes.".
Aren't the Screaming Dizbusters actually the Nomads? Thought I read that somewhere before (never heard 'em, though)...

Let's keep this topic about Sweden, guys. Not Norway, Finland, Denmark, etc. Thanks!
Skurkarna are a great instro band from Gothenberg. They have a track on one of the Hideout comps. Check out their hilarious profile here on the Hideout: http://garagepunk.ning.com/profile/SKURKARNA
How about Henry Fiat's Open Sore they kick ass.
Did anyone say Puffball? The Rockets?
