Crimson Shadows- One Step Beyond Sanity LP. The Crimson Shadows were among the very few and the very first bands that sucessfully took on garage punk not only in Sweden but Europe in general. They had three very talented song writers amonst the group (Peter Maniette, Jens Lindberg and Mans P. Mansson) and their stellar song writing really shines through on this reissue. The band members didn’t just disapear, they continued on with later bands like The Wylde Mammoths, The Highspeed V, The Livingstones and continue to this day with the Maharajas, the Maggots and the Strollers! ‘One Step Beyond Sanity’ compiles all of the Crimson Shadows orignal releases from the mid 80's and screams with pure Garage Punk madness from these legendary, crazed Swedes. It’a great way to hear all of their early releases as the originals have become increasingly difficult to find over the years. The LP comes housed in a nice looking GATEFOLD COVER that includes the full story of the band including pictures of all the record covers and a bunch of unseen photos of the group during their savage 80's years along with extensive liner notes by Lenny Helsing of the Green Telescope, Thanes and Wildebeests. Recommended. Import from Portugal on Groovie Records.
