Turbonegro – Scandinavian Leather

The buzz on this group is gathering intensity, and no wonder. Following Apocalypse Dudes and Ass Cobra, the finely titled Scandinavian Leather, produced at Polar, Stockholm, is the kind of rock hard sofa you’ll want to crawl all over. Fusing Detroit licks and lashings of souped-up guitar to a framework of gauntlet-chucking songs like “The Blizzard Of Flames” and the sensational “Drenched In Blood”, these Turbo trolls are about as much excitement as you can have short of wearing a rubber thong while bathing in custard. And it’s got a Klaus “Beatles mate” Voormann cover. Ice cool and brilliant.
