UPDATE!!! – Groovie found around 200 sleeves of this BEAST at their werehouse, so they decided to repress it. So you will have it with the original GATEFOLD sleeve and a new vinyl on it.

These guys were the absolute definition of the term ” mayhem” ! The Crimson Shadows were among the very few and the very first that took on garage punk not only in Sweden but Europe in general, the first half of a suck ass decade like the 80s.
They had three at least talented song writers (Peter Maniette, Jens Lindberg and Mans P. Mansson), that more or less on ’em the whole rock n’ roll scene of Sweden lean on, with later bands like The Wylde Mammoths, The Highspeed V, The Livingstones and continue to these days with the Maharajas, the Maggots and the Strollers!
They were drunks to the bone, savages and terrorists not only in their music but in lifestyle. There are lots of stories about them on how raised hell and gave the creeps in every single band of that scene or every single show!
This LP compiles all the tracks officialy released by the Crimson Shadows in the 80’s, in vinyl. Original records long gone and beats top dollar in the collectors market.
This where the best you can in the european garage scene in the 80’s. And now …they are back. Full story, record covers and a bunch of unseen photos of the band during the savage 80’s. All the tracks have been taken from the original master tapes. Gatefold cover.
