MOGEL: Mogel 1978-1983
Henry Cow did a few concerts in Sweden in its last days with local friends - The Samlas, Mögel and Kräldjursanstalten. Mögel were part of that sudden release of energy and imagination that followed punk and their music was pared down, quirky, unpretentious and cobweb free; as women, they still had an edge (this was when the Slits and the Raincoats were newsworthy evidence of a new attitude to electric music) and their straightforward approach to playing - not moody, not competitive, not glamorous, studious or defensive - was like the sun breaking through clouds. This record has the same freshness.
