Come on Moonjacks!

Moonjacks began playing already in 1962 as The Currents and hailed from Stockholm. In 1965 thew won two pop competitions at Johanneshov and Nalen and got a record deal with Decca. The first single includes two great songs in quite different styles. The A-side’s Come on is rolling down like a commuter train leaving the station and I remember her smile is just one of those great melodies from the 60s. Moonjacks kept on for two more singles before they spilt up in 1967.

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.
