The adventures of The Angeliques

The Angeliques is considered the first female pop-group in Göteborg. The name is taken from Angelique (original Angélique), a series of 13 French historical adventure books (and films) by the novelist duo Anne and Serge Golon (Sergeanne Golon), .

The group was formed in Högsbotorp, Göteborg in 1965 but it was not until 1968 that they released their first single (in Swedish): Jag Ska Måla Hela Världen Lilla Mamma / Tre Små Flickor (Cupol CS 231). They released their second (and last) single the same year (this time in English): Sunshine Boy / You’re Easy To Love (Nashville NS 867). This record charted #15 at Tio i Topp (Swedish Top Singles-chart).

The Angeliques were Linda Nowitt (vcl/gtr), Irene Svensson (bs) and Titti Thysell (keys/vcl). They split up in 1971.

This is Swedish Beat & Psych

Discover the music that hit the people of Sweden in the 1960s. It was coming from the ground, just like the name of the Lee Kings’ song, and it could be raw, explosive and damn good. Other times naive, childish and inferior copies of the British beat. It seems that every kid in the 1960′s was standing and beating on the guitar in a garage. Pretending to be Beatles or Stones, with a few exceptions that found their inspiration elsewhere. The lucky ones made a record deal and got out on the road to perform in clubs and stages all over this elongated country. So came the Summer of love and the music turned wilder, beat became psychedelic. This site tries to cover some of the beat and psych era in Sweden between 1964 – 1972. Writing and collecting what is possible. Almost like the beat fans did in scrapbooks full of admiraton, love and affection. Do you have something to contribute? Don’t hesitate to contact me.
