Глядя на цифры 1967-68 с трудом верится, что этой музыке более 50 лет. Вокала нет, он тут явно лишний, впрочем, мелодия тоже отсутствует, по той же причине. Чистый импровиз, в стиле тяжелого психодела. Сыграть такое можно только находясь в соседнем измерении. Прослушивать же рекомендуется на трезвую голову, иначе рискуешь оказаться там же. Роскошнейшие рок-мантры, которые опередили свое время на несколько лет.

BABY GRANDMOTHERS is said to be one of the most prolific bands of the late 60s in Sweden. Hailing from Stockholm they were formed out of the beat band T-BOONES which started in 1965, had success with producing some singles and drifted into the psychedelia sound more and more. The first line-up consisted of Pelle Ekman (drums), Göran Malmberg (bass) and Kenny Håkansson (guitar) but Malmberg was soon replaced by Bengt 'Bella' Linnarsson.

The band can be treated as ahead of time with a progressive experimental orientation playing long, mainly improvised songs oriented at Cream and Jimi Hendrix. Some of them were placed on a compilation which was released in 2007 by the swedish Subliminal label. They were recorded at the legendary 'Filips' club, a breeding ground for new experimental bands at that time. BABY GRANDMOTHERS also jammed with Mothers Of Invention and supported The Jimi Hendrix Experience on their Scandinavian tour at the turn of the year 1967/68.

In March 1968 the band headed off to Finland for some concerts and in between they managed to record their one and only single 'Somebody keeps calling my name / Being is more than life'. The two songs are part of the 2007 compilation as well as one live track from the Finland tour. BABY GRANDMOTHERS turned into the reincarnated MECKI MARK MEN afterwards when collaborating with keyboarder Mecki Bodemark. They became the first swedish rock band touring the US. Later the original members went on to form the psych/folk band KEBNEKAJSE.

Some early Swedish psych prog is always interesting to discover and listen, and this record did not cause any disappoitments. In fact, it totally blow my mind and exceeded all of my expectations!

The band has a very strong trio playing style similar to the acid rock legends THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE and live sound of CREAM, leaving the hit song try-outs behind and focusing to long, loose and trippy archaic improvisations. All players are very convincing, bringing much content to the sound, and the raw crush and tender melancholy of the group sucks the willing listener to a voyage to surreal world of impulsive sounds. Except for few wailings in the first track, the music is totally instrumental.

When compared for example to TRÄD, GRÄS OCH STENAR, the approach is less dadaistic and not so minimalistic, and end results of jammings are in my opinion more concrete, than the inventions and sessions of the fine group referred. This band reahes also over 16 and nearly 20 minutes long aggressive bluesy stoner improvs at the middle part of the album, and this kind of psychedelic imagitiveness cannot get better. This live treatment captured to the record culminates everything which is imprortant and beautiful for me in the original psychedelic acid rock breaking the gates of tamed and produced rock music; It is beautiful, strong, impulsive, contact, sincere, innovative, healing, human, and true. The improvisations are not pointless and boring, but constructive and full of musical ideas, feelings and imagination. The sounds are quite raw, but I like the analogue tape recordings, and the sound of the trio is well balanced, guitar being slightly more forward than the bass, which can be heared well as it does not understandably play same notes as guitar in an instrumental trio jammings.

Recommended highly for all fans of raw psychedelic, reactive improvisational imaginative rock music, and also those interested of original 1960's Swedish "Progg" scene. For me this discovery and listening it was a "religious experience", and is now among my all time favourites records!
