about

Emotional Rescue dives back in the world of post punk experiments and early synthesised electronics to present another of the labels iconoclastic 7” ‘collectors specials’, with a look at Stockholm’s Ståålfågel.

Born in 1977, Erik Fritjofsson and Petter Brundell merged and formed Ståålfågel out of the suburbs of Jakobsberg. Like so many at the time, the duo was tired of Prog, Jazz and Symphonic Rock and formulated something new and against at the same moment; a time where drummers were jettisoned in place of drum machines and the inspirations of artists like Creedence Clearwater Revival, Devo and Pere Ubu were thrown in the mix to fervent results.

With Micke Kjell soon joining on bass, they toured Sweden constantly, the manic machine beat, beating guitars and strange synth sounds defeated the throng and led to a considerable following. Recorded live to tape with no overdubs or mixing, the faithful CR 78 drum machine in hand, the results radiate energy.

Releasing just 4 records in 2 years (1980 – 1982), Utan Rymddråkt På Uranus appeared as their last ever release. Jettisoning the punky-funk vocals of previous releases, the single is a pure electronic groove. Funk bass and guitar atop, its short form simplicity is perfection distilled in 2 parts of less than 3 minutes, conjoined like some reggae dream, with ‘Uranus II’ acting the dub ‘version’ counterpoint.

Discovered and shared by long-time friend, DJ and collector, Gary The Tall steps out from behind the decks and microphone of his long running NTS show to present an exemplary “Reversion”. Teaming up with master producer and label affiliate, Timothy J Fairplay on engineering duties, they keep the originals’ straightforward charm, deceptively editing, looping and reversing with aplomb, for a killer flip side.
