Mögel (mold) was a swedish punk band from Farsta. The band started back in 1978 and was part of the early punk movement in Sweden. They played alot of gigs (ca 500) in Sweden, Belgium France and former Czechoslovakia. Unfortunatly they were a bit reluctant to record their music as they thought their music was supposed to be heard performed live. That is supposedly the reason why they did'nt realese more then 6 songs and that it took until 1981 for their first and only release.
Mögel was Ulrika Malmgren on vocals, Gitte Lilja on base, Marie Wrengler on drums and Eva Bergström on guitar. Theyhad a very specifik sound that differed alot from other bands during the era. In fact they sounded very post-punk years before the new wave and had a very edgy and strutty way of playing.
The label Massproduktion did a re-release of the record on CD in 2009, wich also included som demo's and live-recordings. The band reunited for the release and did a few gigs. Marie Wrengler unfortunatly struggled with cancer at the time and died in 2011 only 49 years old.
The really cool artwork for the cover is by French painter Olivia Télé Clavel. I found my copy at Tradera and payed 4,68 €, a real bargain.
