Ebba Gron - 1978-1982

Ebba Grön was a Swedish punk band formed in 1977 in Ragsved, a working-class suburb of Stockholm. One of the most famous songs they recorded is a cover by the Swedish progg band Bla Taget and is called "Staten & Kapitalet", a song with anti-capitalist political lyrics about how the government "Staten", and the private corporations "Kapitalet", cooperate to control and enslave the working classes. They released their first single "Antirock" on April 21, 1978. The band bought all the 500 copies themselves and sold them in the streets. In 1978, the time had come for their album debut "We're Only In It For The Drugs", with songs about the tough, yet boring lives of young people in the working-class suburbs. The anarchist lyrics were seen as very controversial at the time, and the lyrics of one song "Beväpna er", (Take up arms) about taking up arms against the government, the bourgeoisie and the Swedish royal family, could not be printed on the cover. The band also started to get a reputation of having troublesome gigs, with vandalism and fights. At one gig when the band was attacked by Neo-Nazis, Fjodor used his bass to fight them off. Covers included.
