** 1971 debut album reissue with bonus Lp with unreleased material. Limited edition 500 copies ** In the early 1970s, Sweden, similar to neighboring Germany, had a vibrant music culture that shunned American and British tendencies. Here, bands were allowed to experiment with a wide variety of musical styles without worrying about how they would fare commercially. Here, innovative rock acts like International Harvester, Algarnas Tradgard, Samla Mammas Manna, and Kebnekaise came together to create something truly special. All of them were released on the Silence label, which is similar to Germany's Ohr label but is Swedish. Among these fantastic groups was Flasket Brinner, whose song "The Flesh is Burning" is prominent. Flasket Brinner's self-titled debut album was an instrumental free-form jam with sporadic progressive compositions performed live. Much of the style comes from the free jazz movement that was popular in Europe in the late '60s. As a bonus, a whole extra LP is included with previously unreleased material from the concert in Stockholm's Konserthus in December 1970 when they were part of Frank Zappa and Mothers of Invention, as well as a song from the so-called Tredje Gärdesfesten, which was held indoors at Liljevalch's Konsthall in 1972.
An improv/prog album with almost no equivalent - is not only beautiful and visionary in creative terms, but stands as a striking form of the unexpected and ambitious bridges between creative worlds that helped define the Swedish experimental and progressive scene.
