Vampa were just kids, 13-14 years old when they recorded and released their raw and very Iron Maidenesque 45 back in 1982. DIY all by themselves… The lyrics (sung in Swedish) is the ultimate hate for school-anthem. The boredom and frustration of (barely) teenage kids totally sick of school and its teachers has rarely been captured in a better and more enjoyable way. Even though the lyrics are in Swedish the language that grabs the listener as the needle is dropped into the groove is universal. Original 45 is near impossible to find. On The Dole Records found the members, got loads of rare photos that fill up the printed inner sleeve. Comes with new original artwork by Swedish artist Oscar Nordblom, the guy behind the notorious Jobcentre Rejects-drawings. Filed under: ”beyond essential to any serious rock’n’roll fan”.
