Kvartetten Som Sprängde; KattvalsSubliminal Sounds
SUB 091 LP
Long Playing Record
Subliminal Sounds presents the band Kvartetten Som Sprängde (trans. "The Quartet That Blasted") and their album Kattvals (trans. "Cat Waltz"). First-ever vinyl reissue of one of the most sought-after and beautiful psych rock / progressive / pre-jazz rock instrumental albums ever recorded in Sweden.
Originally released during the summer 1973 on the obscure Gump label. Powered by a C-3 organ, Ludwig kit and 50-watt Marshall head with a home-built cabinet, the skilled three-piece band (not a quartet, as the band name would have you believe) absolutely soars on this record, blasting away fantastically. The delicate use of the studio echo-chamber lends a magical, gossamer reverb to the whole album's sound.
Includes a 4-page insert with lots of never-before-published photos and extensive liner notes by Reine Fiske (Dungen,The Amazing, etc.).
