Magic Seed on CD

Re release of the debut album by Easy, Magic Seed. Originally released in 1990. It was twenty-seven years ago that Swedish indie band Easy released their debut album Magic Seed on the renowned Blast First label. Label head Paul Smith evidently recognized the perfect combination of Sonic Youth-like intensity and the sweet harmonies of The Beach Boys. When Easy first arrived in England they met audiences who were unaware of Swedish pop, except for ABBA of course. Easy's singer Johan Holmlund quickly took advantage of the situation. With his tongue firmly in his cheek, Johan pointed out that Abba's Agnetha Faltskog was babysitting in their native Jonkoping. The journalists liked what they heard. In June 1990 NME's Dele Fadele wrote: "I think Easy will help break down that traditional English snobbish attitude towards European acts. People will be made to sit up and notice, 'cos what they're doing right now is intrinsically more valid than most of the inadequates who clog up record shops." Easy released three singles: "Castle Train", "He Brings The Honey", and "Horoscope" which all found place in the UK indie charts. They toured all around Europe with the likes of The Gun Club, The House Of Love, Lush, The Charlatans, and The Jesus and Mary Chain. Remastered version of this classic debut, all with hypnotic original artwork by William Latham. CD version comes in a gatefold sleeve; Includes six bonus tracks.
