Swedish 'Supergroup' TRAMP Releases Debut Album

TRAMP, the new Swedish "rock 'n' roll super group consisting of well-known
rock gurus from bands such as THE HELLACOPTERS, CAPTAIN MURPHY, HENRY FIATS OPEN SORE and THE TURPENTINES, has just released its debut album, "Indigo", in Sweden via Killer Cobra Records. A wider European release is scheduled for May 2.

The band's lineup is as follows:

* Markus Karlsson (THE TURPENTINES) - Vocals
* Stefan Brainstrum (HENRY FIATS OPEN SORE) - Electric Guitar
* Johannes Borgström (ex-CAPTAIN MURPHY) - Electric Bass
* Robert Eriksson (MIDLIFE CRISIS, ex-THE HELLACOPTERS) - Drums

The singer Markus Karlsson and guitarist Stefan Brändström were previously members of REPUBLIKANS. In 2007, they sought a new platform for playing music together and recruited a rhythm section consisting of Robert Eriksson and Johannes Borgström.

Musically TRAMP "weave together decades of musical heritage," according to a press release. "The melodies and harmonies echoing of the '60s, the attack in the performance has more of a '70s touch, and some big gestures could be from the 80's. Furthermore, they dig into their own story and weave everything together into something that lives and breathes in its own own time. It sounds quite British in a head-on collision with the U.S. and then '60s psychedelia next to pure garage rock. Like New York punk rockers on a Magical Mystery Tour. Or a DAMNED who hack out some BEACH BOYS songs. And sometimes as THE WHO in their best pop moments.
