Alexander Lucas - s/t 2xLP
Label: Subliminal Sounds
Subliminal Sounds proudly presents Alexander Lucas! The long-lost music and history of the groundbreaking and legendary Swedish hard rock/proto-metal band active between 1969 and 1976. This mind-blowing 2xLP set contains their extraordinarily rare self-financed 1973 single "Speed b/w Svarta Skogen (The Black Forest)" that was issued on the custom record label Efel, plus tons of killer previously unreleased recordings. A dream come true! The thoroughly researched booklet documents the band's long history, including their early incarnations and different line-ups. The pioneering young group performed an extreme number of gigs with their amps cranked up to the max at youth halls all over the country, and it was through performing their skilled, innovative, raw hard rock that Alexander Lucas became very popular and influential among the long-haired stoner teens, eventually graduating to bigger venues. Alexander Lucas is the latest sizzling heavy meatball in our tasty series The Swedish Hard Rock Underground: A Smorgasbord of Heavy Sounds!
