Akutt-80 - Akutt-80 EP
Formed in 1978 in Kongsvinger, Norway under the name Vicious Kids and later Riot, before settling for Akutt 80. The three kids aged 15, 17 and 18 found the vocalist in summer 1979 and quickly recorded a handful of songs at their bass player´s place, using the staircase as the vocal booth. His grandma, who was at home while the recording took place, did not like the vocals on “Prostituert” (Prostitute) and asked the boys to be more quiet, which can actually be heard on the recording. 4 songs of mid tempo punk rock with one reggae influenced song that you could expect from 4 teenage boys back in 1979. This EP (originally released in 1981) has become a classic that is sold at very high prices also because it´s believed that the band made a fire and destroyed a lot of the records that didn´t sell right away.
One of the rarest punk rock EPs from Norway is finally seeing the reissue with an extra insert containing the band´s history. 350 copies.
