7" - GÅS - EPITAPH Limited Edition of 66 copies numbered editions

Limited Edition of 66 copies numbered editions

The Swedish word 'GÅS' has two known meanings - one is 'goose', the Mythical mighty animal and the other is street slang for 'smoking weed'. Though there may now be a third new meaning, and that would be 'heavy and loud'.

The 7"starts with 'Epitaph', a 4 minute + track, rammed full of incredible 'Rocket trademark' fuzz-wah immersions from twin lead guitars. The early 70s rock inspired vibe is reminiscent of classic Black Sabbath and Blue Cheer but also has a 'commune-dwelling' sound of the German bands from that same era. Acts like Amon Düül II and Agitation Free spring to mind - as well as their Swedish contemporaries Arbete & Fritids, International Harvester and Rävjunk.

The B-side 'The North Wind Blew South' is, in fact, a cover version, originally by the British band Philamore Lincoln, who made one album in 1970. GÅS move the intimate, string driven pop song into a fuzz filled sing-along anthem with its feet firmly set in the Swedish psych scene.
