The band: TERRIBLE FEELINGS are four twenty-somethings from Sweden: Manuela sings, Anton plays guitar and sings, Willy plays bass and Andy plays drums. Together they play absolutely fantastic black angst-ridden power-pop! And that’s basically it! Listen and believe! Well, due to the fact that these kinda info-sheets should carry some kinda info for uninspired people who don’t know what to write about the music, here you have some unfiltered info-schlock: The hometown of the TERRIBLE FEELINGS is Malmö, a world-famous city for cool Punkrock- and Hardcore-bands like Fy Fan, Skitkids, Herätys, Hårda Tider, Sista Sekunden, Dipper and Slöa Knivar. The band TERRIBLE FEELINGS formed in the fall of 2009, and their basic impetus was to do something that was thoroughly thought through and set them apart from other punk bands in their town. Members of the TERRIBLE FEELINGS play/have played in various other bands and projects, some very cool, some not even good. But due to the fact that namedropping sucks, I’m sure you’ll find out about those other bands on your own (if you care).
The band once described their sound as "sorta DISCHARGE meets LOST SOUNDS mixed with surf-guitars and 80ies Swedish punkrock. Or something. It's very melodic." Rob Seaton from Canada voted them "AMAZING!!!" when his band STATUES shared stage with them in Malmö. Guess what. .. he’s right! They recorded a superb 4-song-demo in early 2010, that got re-released on 7inches-vinyl by Erste Theke Tonträger. Besides of their 2-song-debut-single "Tied Up" on Timmeheiehumme Records they’ve got another 2-song-7inch scheduled as a split-release between Sabotage Records (Germany) and Manuela’s new label some time later in 2011. TERRIBLE FEELINGS will tour Germany and Europe in June 2011 and it’ll be huge!!!
This record: I immediately fell in love with this band when I heard their 4-track-demo early in 2010. It was perfect! I fell even more in love with them when I saw them live in fall 2010! Actually just four people standing on stage. But when they started playing they generated this incomparable energy, it was unbelievable! Could it get any better? Yeah! I am the lucky one to release the debut-single of the TERRIBLE FEELINGS! And they got even better than they were on the demo! I hope you’ll notice the supremacy of this band, as soon as you drop the needle and listen to the first notes of "Tied Up"! Incredible! And when "No Meaning" is over spin the record and play it again and again and again! Will TERRIBLE FEELINGS be the "soon to be Punkrock-world-dominators" or the "hipsters-don’t-like" band? I dunno! All I know is that they do marvelous music and they did an awesome debut-record. I’m very proud to release this platter and that’s the only thing that counts!
