Klubb Filips

Klubb Filips was the first psychedelic club in Scandinavia and maybe Europe. It was located at Regeringsgatan in Stockholm and was frequented by mods and  hippies. Filips was open from autumn 1967 to january 1968 but had a huge inpact on the music scene in Sweden. Artists that performed at the club where Hansson & Karlsson, T-Boones, Pärson Sound, Baby Grandmothers, The Shakers, The Outsiders, Blossom Toes and Jimi Hendrix among others. I wrote an article about the club, published in the magazines Kolet earlier this year, interviewing owners, artists and visitors. Here are two awsome tunes recorded at the club.

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.
