Uppåt Väggarna (SE), probably one of the most obscure early 70s proto hard rock bands to emerge from Sweden.REGAIN RECORDS – REBORN CLASSICS is proud to present to present UPPÅT VÄGGARNA’s lone cult-classic EP, Jag Hatar Politik, on 12” vinyl format.Back in 1970, the Swedish hard rock scene had just taken its first deep breath with the band November unveiling their riff-laden debut album, En ny tid är här ("A New Time is Here" - a highly accurate statement). Later the same year, another band started to take form. They started out as a cover band, but were also highly influenced by the aforementioned pioneers. The band was named UPPÅT VÄGGARNA (“Upon the Walls”), and in 1971, they released their first and only 7" single, Jag hatar politik/Jag färdas, proudly showing off their November influences.Translated into English as “I Hate Politics” (another highly accurate statement!), UPPÅT VÄGGARNA’s lone single was released on the independent Efel label and has become quite the collectors item, both for its historical value as well as the quality of the band’s songwriting – moody, buzzing, brewed in the garage and just as potent! Finally, after 51 years, Jag hatar politik is now reissued, accompanied by two previously unknown and unreleased bonus tracks, recorded later the same year. A true collectors item, now on 12" format including the story of the band, hear righteous & raw hard rock straight from the earliest Scandinavian soil!
