Presidents Of The United States Of America - The Studion, Stockholm 29/3/1996


As the eighties drew to a close and the shambling C86sters ceased sucking on mummy's tit to get proper jobs to pay off debts accrued by commercial failure, and with most ravers either institutionalised or in morgues, the dawn of the nineties was largely the domain of workshy grungers (dressed, somewhat conversely, as lumberjacks or construction labourers) who ponced of their hard working girlfriends and wrote songs about how crap their lives were to pass time until their dealers arrived with a fresh batch of exotic phrmaceuticals. The UK's antidote to all this was to sing about daily life in Britain, including subjects on obese people dossing on park benches in the sarf and stoned dole-spongers walking down hallways faster than cannonballs.

Enter the Presidents Of The United States Of America who roused the nineties youth from teen torpor with songs about tinned fruit, unidentifiable species of pondlife, beach transportation and cocaine-snorting frogs and their curious musical instrument hybrid of guitbasses and bassitars.

At the time of this session, PUSA were pop picking their to prosperity in the UK charts with Lumps. Debut album, originally released on a small independent label, was snapped up by Colombia and went on to sell several million copies worldwide.

The group would split up soon after the release of overlooked second album "II" in 1997, but in the noughties have periodically reunited for packed out tours and the odd album or two, most recently in 2008.

  3. Has anything ever bothered you in life? Do you
    have any problem you need to solve? A pending
    court case you want to resolve in your favor?
    Health, relationship and finance. Welcome to
    the world of miracles and wonders, there are
    supernatural treasure and power to liberate
    mankind from all afflictions. Why cant you live a
    life of your dream? Why must you work so hard
    and yet earn so little? Why cant you be happy
    with the one you love and desire or why cant the
    one you love reciprocate and appreciate that
    love? Why would the doctor tell you there is no
    solution or cure to your problems? Why would
    your lawyer say you stand no chance, that your
    case is hopeless? Have you been cheated by
    anyone or those owing you money refuse to pay
    back? Do you need a rapid job promotion in
    your place of work? You want to venture into
    politics? Now I understand certain things are

    advantage of the powerful nature of our items
    for the purpose of evil, I will not have any
    business with you please be advised. May
    angels guide you. All inquiries should be
