Sale price160,00 kr


Undertakers Circus was a band from Lillestrøm that existed between 1967 and 1976. Despite the name, Undertakers Circus was one of the earliest Norwegian rock bands that sang in Norwegian, and a number of the lyrics had a political sting, among other things the band set the melody to two poems by Rudolf Nilsen, while others dealt with Norwegian history and Norse mythology. Musically, the band was inspired by bands such as Blood, Sweat & Tears and Chicago and played rock with full brass. The band's first single was the English-language "Little Boy Blue", with the b-side "Gotta Get Away", released in 1968. It was then four years before the band's next release, the single "Riil køntri mjusik"/"Menuet silikose", released in 1972, which satirized musical snobbery, and which, despite not being musically typical for the band, was to become the band's biggest hit. Musically, this song was based on "Nashville Cats" by The Lovin' Spoonful, and it was also included on the compilation album Norsk på top 2. This was followed by the debut album Ragnarock . The album was recorded in February 1973 with Johnny Sareussen as producer, and released later that year. One of the songs on the disc was "Nettenes prinssesse", where the lyrics were written by Thor Sigbjørn Greni and the music by Eigil Berg.
