The shaking Black Bumbles

Black Bumbles came from Kalmar and started out as Les Vagabonds. They released three singles between 1965-1966 on the small label Midnight Sun Records. Black Bumbles came second in a pop competition called “Smålandsmästerskapen” that was held in Nybro May 19 1965. Below you can listen to two great songs with the band. “Shaking Baby” from the debut single released in 1965. This song is written by Black Bumbles own Inge Petersson (bass) and Per-Olof Blomqvist (Vocals, Guitar). The second tune is a version of Louis Armstrongs”Ol’ Man Mose” from their third and last seven inch from 1966.

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.
