AKUTT INNLEGGELSE

Early-to-mid-80's Norwegian pre-teen hardcore ensemble featuring Thomas and Bengt - both at the age of ca. 13 (!) - on guitars and vocals backed by their slightly older friends Rolf and Espen on drums and bass. A couple of tracks recorded with Bengt's brother were released in 1983 on their Echos From The Asylum 7" on the Straitjacket label that had just been invented by Thomas the very same year. In 1984 Bjørn took over for the vocals, later Espen was replaced by Erik on bass.

Subsequently to their single Akutt Innleggelse released a couple of further tracks on numerous compilations, among others there surfaced songs on two now legendary hardcore compilations - an international compilation tape on ROIR issued by MRR columnist Mykel Board entitled World Class Punk and the Cleanse The Bacteria LP released by famous illustrator "Pushead" on his own Pusmort label. The first item has recently been reissued by ROIR on compact disc as well as there are two of the three tracks of their debut single featured on the "Bloodstains Across Norway" LP.

Thomas' statement on the end of Akutt Innleggelse: "We jumped off the hardcore bandwagon when everybody else started wearing so-called dreadlocks and started protesting dildo import etc."
