Noisegasm: Mögel

Last night, a friend of a friend hooked me up with the complete(?) recordings of all-female svenskt muskikgrupp Mögel.

I am seriously digging these zigzag rhythms and delightfully atonal Swedish vocals. Check out their S/T EP from 1981:

    Great find! For some reason, this reminded me of this great compilation I used to have, “Rokk in Reykjavik” (http://www.amazon.com/Rokk-Reykjavik/dp/B00004LMKG), but have since misplaced. Here’s some footage from one of the better artists performing 2 songs from that mid-1980s comp.: http://www.amazon.com/Rokk-Reykjavik/dp/B00004LMKG

    Thought you might find it interesting if you were not aware already. Cheers!

      DOOD. That Icelandic shit is really cool. I lived in Iceland for awhile, and tried to learn about the early scene, but have never even heard of that group. Thank you, thank you!

      Also, check out early Bjork project Tappi Tíkarrass if you haven’t done so before. 🙂 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCULqDFx_pk

    I was kind of hoping that Mögul were going to be a death metal band from a Swiss ski village, but I’ll take this – it’s great stuff, and I’d never heard of them.
