iskra // allemansrätt

iskra // allemansrätt (ett minne för livet 1977)

side a
1. den ensamme cyklisten 5'58
2. klirr - tolv man i skogen 6'54
3. vedkraft 4'43
4. grodsymfonin 5'15
side b
5. en syl i vädret 4'19
6. till katarina blum 7'04
7. gula flöjten 4'27
8. halte kameraden 3'35

another stellar unreissued swedish free jazz session. iskra, which featured jörgen adolfsson who also played with archimedes badkar, improvise a taut and rhythmic 40+ minute set, which is clearly ayler inspired. makes sense as he spent quite some time in stockholm, as did don cherry.

disclaimer: this was passed on to me as a cdr and the original rip of this is shady. both sides of the lp have been recorded as one long track and the record crackles quite a bit, which is fine, but one can also hear windows warning pop-ups in a couple of places. if anyone has a better version of this, please speak up, as this is music that needs to be heard! (60 mb)

good article on swedish improv:

Wow! Thanks for this one - worth it even with the crackling and the windows pop ups. It's funny, I was listening to it, heard the pop ups and thought it was my computer (which does it often enough). But hey it is improvised music, so anything goes... It actually reminds me a bit of Limbus 3 or Annexus Quam. And the bizarre kazoos/duck calls, especially the section at the beginning of side 2 (or at least what I think is side 2), great wacked out stuff! Also an interesting side note re: Ayler - apparently Sune Spangberg played with these guys, though I don't know if he's on this recording. He was the drummer on Ayler's 1st recordings made in Sweden in the early 60s.

I am Tuomo Haapala, one of the two bassists in Iskra and a menber in this blessed ensemble from 1970 to it's end around 1992. Sune Spångberg plyed with us from the beginning to the end, so evben on this album, Allemansrätt. I have a few unplayed vinyls left in my cellar.
