Listen: Physique Sedition – Epidemic


They came from the South of Sweden, namely from Veberöd, Lund. Physique Sedition is the name of a group of friends whom were active in a smaller scene from 1991-1992, where they did different live-performances in front of audiences in their local community. Their one and only mini-album was released in 1993, under the name of “Epidemic“. Since December 1992 they’d been recording the material that was featured on this mini-album. During this period of time, the original line-up was as most active, as the group consisted of Andreas Lundberg, Lars-Erik Pettersson and Martin Andersson. The most interesting thing is that they were all still in high-school when they recorded these tracks. When Andersson left the group, the other members Lundberg and Pettersson continued with their struggle as Physique Sedition some more years, before they gave up on the project. Later on, in 2002, they reformed under the name of Radical Tea Party – together with Sebastian Fannon. Every gig they had done during their period when they were the most active, was always in the little town of Södra Sandby, just outside Lund. Since this project hits close to home geographically, but also musically, their four-tracked mini-album represents a whole lot more. The perfect combination of EBM and harsher elements of industrial, also indulging in electro-industrial mayhem together with an atmosphere that gives and takes from darkwave. All four tracks were recorded onto a Tascam 4-track portabel cassette recorder, using equipment like Ensoniq Mirage, Yamaha RY-30, BOSS SE-30, Korg Poly-300, Yamaha FB-01, Yamaha TX16W and Roland TR-707. Even though the sound isn’t that great, you should still listen to this magnificent release. Originally released on cassette in 1993. Stream it down below.
