Drugs and Love Love Love

This is one of my absolute favorit songs from the Swedish 60s. It’s Drugs with their song “Love Love Love”, a beautiful fuzzy and psychedelic composition. It can be found on the very fine compilation Who Will Buy These Wonderful Evils Vol.III and ofcourse on their self-released white label seven inch on Drugs Production. Absolute impossible to find! There is almost no information about this band. No one knows who Nisse, Pierre, Bosse and Stefan were and where they came from. Maybe this masterpiece was released in 1969, maybe not. If you recognize those guys and the band, please contact me! Who wouldn’t like to hear their story and maybe even get the chance to listen to the B-side with Drugs own version of “Midnight hour”?

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.
