2015 restock, reduced pricing. 2005 release. Available for the first time since its release twenty years ago, The Backdoor Men were ultimate mid-1980s jangly garage rock/pop/folk from Sweden. Decades before bands like the Hives, Sweden was already well known for it's amazing modern beat-psych through compatriot and influential bands such as the Creeps, Crimson Shadows, The Stomachmouths and of course the sharpest of them all; the Backdoor Men. The mighty Backdoor Men originally started up as the mod-band Pow in 1982 but when the amazing vocalist Robert Jelinek, who was also in the Creeps, joined forces with Hans Ingemansson (guitar & vocals), Stefan Nilsson (bass), and Ismail Samie (drums), they changed their name to The Backdoor Men, playing covers of the Chocolate Watch Band, Music Machine and Standells. The rest is garage rock history. For the first time you can hear all of their recordings and read their exciting story. This album contains lots of unreleased bonus tracks, a groovy booklet with extensive liner notes giving an uncensored, first-hand peak as to what really happened, plus lots of photos. It's all here.
