Storm - Storm At The Top (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 19-EW 0080CD
The second of three albums by this Swedish progressive rock band from the mid 1970s, formed by the quite well known poet Jacques Werup. All three of their albums were on the Harvest label.

"Famous poet Jacques Werup formed this progressive band in Malmo in 1973. His Swedish-language lyrics on Stormvarning have a socialist message with a poetic, yet violent, touch. The band strove to make the music radical, with most of the music written by Rolf Sersam. The standout cut, "Snart Bryter Stormen Ut", was written by Werup and guitarist Mulle Holmqvist, who really shines here. Ek and Karlberg were then replaced by Lasse Berggrensson and Percy Malmqvist who both had played with Holmqvist in 60's band The Troublemakers. Storm At The Top saw the entire band mooning on the back cover. It featured English-language lyrics and less experimental, but still progressive, music. EMI in London wanted Storm to have a big tour in Great Britain but bad wages made the band decline the offer....Werup went on to release several solo albums, often collaborating with his former Storm colleagues."-The Encyclopedia of Swedish Progressive Music 1967-1979
