Plommons last train to Liverpool

Plommons was one of a few Swedish bands with just girls in the 60s. They took their name from stone fruits (Plums) that had some resemblance with the bassplayer Eva Håkanson’s face.  Even before they had released their first single they where playing at the famous TV-show “Drop-In”. The song Last train to Liverpool is from their debut 7″ (Odeon SD5988) from 1966 and written by Plommons guitarist Maud Lindqvist. It’s a great song! Click the press cutting to read an article from 1965 in the magazine Bildjournalen. The title is “Plommons, sötast i Sverige?”, in English: “Plommons cutest in Sweden?”. Of course, it’s a man who wrote the text…

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.
