Uppsala Stadshotell Brinner Igen. is the second album by Rävjunk, Scandinavia's best punk-psych band from Uppsala, Sweden. This second album includes tracks from rare singles and EPs released from 1979-1980, as well as completely unknown tracks picked by Peter Ericson (drums). Shadoks Music and Ericson were working on this album for weeks, and just before the album was done, Peter sadly passed away. This album is in memory of Peter Ericson, the great Swedish drummer and singer from Rävjunk. Uppsala Stadshotell Brinner Igen. is a great selection of songs influenced by the early pre-punk period ala Stooges/MC5, as well as the longer jamming guitar tracks of German kraut and space-rock bands. They also saw the heavy psych movement as a bright star. Several influences are evident, but it's all blended into something unique, as each member brought their own intriguing ingredients into the music. Guitarist Christer Lindahl was a Hendrix freak and singer Sören G. Andersson was deeply involved in the new punk rock movement. Bassist Lars-Eric was very much into Jack Bruce and Cream, while Peter, the drummer, was an avid fan of German bands such as Can and Guru Guru. The first album, originally released in 1977 was titled Uppsala Stadshotell Brinner (SHAD 185LP, 2016), which in Swedish means, "Uppsala City Hotel Is Burning". Uppsala Stadshotell Brinner Igen. is Swedish for "Uppsala City Hotel Is Burning Again". A great album from beginning to end, just as good as the first album for sure. Comes as 180 gram "transparent yellow" vinyl, in a heavy sleeve and with a two-page insert. Edition of 500 (numbered).
