Drra På – En kul grej på väg till Götet

Ok, to be honest this is not the best movie ever made, it’s probably not even correct to categorize it as good. But it has some unusual clips with bands like The Lee Kings and Shanes. And the bad acting can actually make you smile for yourself some times. See the movie for free at Voddler. Other bands worth mentioning is Spotnicks, Ola & The Janglers and Jerry Williams & The Violents. Beneath, Lee Kings plays an alternative version of their great song Orient express. Note that the bus is driven by the world champion in professional heavyweight boxing 1959-1960, Ingmar Johansson. And the movie title?
It’s something like Drrag on – a funny thing on it’s the way to Göteborg.

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.
