The Nomads – Can’t keep my mind off you


The Nomads have been the kings of the Swedish garage rock scene for more than thirty years now. I have seen them a number of times during the years, and even though their records have had their ups and downs, they have been a consistently excellent live act. They will play The Pipeline in London 11 Oct, catch them if you can.
This 45 from 1991 I found in a block sale, the kind where a number of people on the same street or block have joint garage sales. I have to say it’s one of their better songs. They started mainly covering 60s songs in Nuggets style, but went on to write originals. If you want to get into them, start with Outburst that collects their two first sixtrack MPs, and then first full-length album Hardware.
