    Also Vendeltid can be had as part of the two CD set for around 30 euros -considering you get three complete albums (all good) this isn't too much. http://www.discogs.com/sell/release/1352745?ev=rb
    Thanks for the heads up. I'll check that out.

    I just listened to 1983 again a couple nights ago. Fantastic stuff!

    Yes, this is as good a Zamla live record anyone could have wanted even during their tenure itself. Hail the grand master Steve F. for this one.

    This one as well...

    I had the pleasure of seeing them in NY at I think The Knitting Factory. Wonderful band and show.

    It's been ages since I spun No Makeup!, and seeing how it's not likely ever to reach CD format, I'll have to acquaint myself with it all over again. I'm so glad I got this back when it was still fairly easy to find...

    Agreed. I got a nice vinyl copy back in the mid-late '80s.

    Just listened to 1983 a few days ago. Great album AFAIC. Samla/Zamla is still unfolding for me, for which I am grateful.
    Hired on to work for Mr. Bill Cox, a-fixin' lawn mowers and what-not, since 1964.

    It's also on "Schlagerns Mystik". A strange album. A collection of short childrens ditties and an epic prog instrumental.

    I listened to "1983" after a (too) long time and liked it even more. "Ten Tango" is my fav song. It also got me interested in Munju which I should investigate in. Any recommendations?

    For a mix of krauty progressive and fusion you can't go wrong with High-Speed Kindergarten or Moon You. If you are interested in an oddball hybrid of new wave (NDW) and RIO, then proceed to Brot + Spiele.

    Munju is definetely worth investigating. On the last album Michael Berckmans from Univers Zero blows the bassoon.
    None of their albums are CD'fied, but on the homepage http://www.munjumusic.com/ you can send an email to the guitarist who now lives in United States and he will send you a zipfile with all albums mp3'ed.

    Thanks for the info. The unreleased video and song "Captain Kirk" sounded like a perfect mix of The Police, 80's Crimson and Devo.

    I still do not own one single Samla album and I think thats a crying shame. Problem is that I cant find any vendor which sells their album against a reasonable price. I know Wayside sells a couple but those oversea orders get ver pricey anyway. I will save those orders for cuneiform releases. Anyone got a tip where to buy for this lowlander?

    Surprised to see No Make Up as a download on Amazon! Familycracks would be a great place to start at a good price. You can find all of them at Synphonic plus afew bootlegs: http://synphonic.8m.com/country/sweden.htm

    Me too. For no good reasons it was never CD'ed, so I dont think this is legit.

    it's licensed from JARO, who put the vinyl out in Germany. So, I guess it's close enough to legit.

    I released "1983" because I gave up on a CD release of No Make Up.

    I was told for years by the owners of the rights that there would be a CD 'soon'. After 10 years, I realized that wasn't actually going to happen.

    I don't think it will ever be released on CD.

    This is the best Swedish band ever, and a top-10 prog act of all time. I don't know if uncle Francesco was aware of them, but if he were, he would be proud, and most probably jealous. There is stuff in Familjesprickor - like The Forge - that predates what Zappa did in the late 80's early 90's by a whole decade.

    And the funny voice-primeordeal, prelingual expression element reaches a peak with the Samlos. That is on its own a huge contribution to art, if anyone cares to listen.

    Of Lasse Holmes many soloalbums Vendeltid 1987 is pretty close in style to Samla/Zamla/Von.

    https://www.discogs.com/LHO-Vendeltid/release/769297 - only on LP, but on CD in this compilation: https://www.discogs.com/Lars-Hollmer...elease/1352745



    This version is different from the CD version, more mellow.

    I keep in mind to listen to Hölmer solo albums (is Lasse Holmes a typo or a nordic pun?). But in order to do that I need to extricate myself from the obsessive Samla Binge that consumes me.
