NASUM: Early Live Videos Posted Online

Defunct Swedish grindcore merchants NASUM have uploaded video footage of two complete live shows from the band's very first tour.

According to former NASUM drummer Anders Jakobson, Rob of "shot these videos back in 1999 at CBGBs in New York and Melody Bar in New Brunswick, and they bring back a lot of memories. The first tour is something special and I can remember very much of those 17 days we were in the U.S. like it was just the other week.

"These rough videos display a very early version of NASUM as a live band. It was our ninth and tenth show with that lineup and it was the end of the tour. I am frankly surprised that it was as good as it is (?) considering everything. The band sounds very aggressive and hardcore and the tracklist includes lots of songs that we never played again live. It's very cool, and it's also a bit humorous — just look at how low Mieszko [Talarczyk; vocals, guitar] had his mike stand during this tour! It's freaking hilarious."

NASUM decided to split up after Talarczyk died in the the Southeast Asian tsunami disaster on December 26, 2004.
