VOODOO DOLLS - Poison In Your Drink 1983 - 1986 LP green + printed inlay! 200gr. Vinyl pressing! 50 numbered copies made!
Voodoo Dolls – from Sweden, not to be confused with any other band also using the name – burned fast, and burned bright. Formed in 1983 and splitting three years later, they issued one LP, a mini-LP and a seven-inch EP. Though inspired by rockabilly and travelling through the psychobilly landscape, they ploughed their own furrow – diving into freakbeat and soul while never straying far from their inspirations. In their world, rough-edged band originals like the swinger “Split Personality” and the untrammelled “Vampireville” sat alongside distinctive covers of CCR’s “Bad Moon Rising” and Gloria Jones via Soft Cell via Dave Phillips & the Hot Rod Gang’s “Tainted Love”.
Poison In Your Drink 1983-1986 collects the essentials. There are even three previously unheard cuts: a romp through Swedish Sixties oddball’s Annabee-Nox’s “Bo Bo Boogie Pack”, a grindingly brutal version of Don Cole’s 1961 single “Lie Detector Machine” and a stuttering take on the obscure 1958 Bill Allen & The Backbeats B-side “Please Give Me Something”.
Sweden had a booming garage rock scene but Voodoo Dolls stood apart. No one else there was musically reframing the past for the Eighties in this way. L-P Anderson (bass, vocals), Danny Engström (aka Danny Boy: guitar, vocals), drummer Leif Ekring (aka Spunk) and his replacement Pontus Hansson and short-stay early singer Eric Kearley did not respect musical boundaries. And when they had said what they needed to say, it was time to call it a day.
