Moderat Likvidation - Never Mind The Bootlegs... Here's The Real Deal

Moderat Likvidation (Moderate liquidation in english) is a swedish hardcore punk band that formed sometime back in 1980 in the suburbs of Malmö in south of the country. The band originally existed between 1980 and 1985, but reunited in 2007. The word "moderate" in the band name refers to the swedish conservative Moderate Party. Members of the band played also for other bands like Black Uniforms, Hjärnsubstans, R.P Savoy.

I should tell you that "Köttahuve" (Meathead) is an anti-nazi song. According to hearsay, the song reached the ears of Dead Kennedys' singer Jello Biafra and that he banned Moderat Likvidation for being Nazis because of the lines "Sieg Heil" in the chorus. But the lyrics are ironic.

There was also a gig in Helsingborg where a bunch of nazi-skinheads showed up and wanted to discuss the song "Köttahuve", which was all about…naziskins. This "discussion" took place in a dark alley after the gig. However, when one member of the band started waving with a Magnum 44 they didn´t wanna "talk" anymore but ran away. They didn't know it was a plugged gun. There was a story about this incident in a local paper, and nobody knew how it got there!? But the outcome was to the punk-rockers satisfaction, cause there were less incidents like this afterwards.

Here we have their 1983 EP, their demo tape from the same year and swedish national radio session. Raw and powerful music!
