Svart Klovn - Queen Bitch / A-hhh (1986)

Some of you are probably familiar with Svart Klovn's "Knust Knekt" which appears on its own 7" as well as more recent comps like Maskidans. "Queen Bitch" is the English version of that track, so it'll sound familiar ;)

Svart Klovn is an alias of the artist Kid Death, who put together a band called "Kid D. & The Nightshades", which released a self-titled LP. Both of these tracks are from that LP, including a cover of Clockwork Orange's "Sensation Boys". There's also a cover of Velvet Underground's "Venus in Furs". I have the 2 cover tracks, but not a full rip of the LP, so if anyone could rip that for me, that would be wonderful!

I just got done ripping/scanning this one, and let me just say the b-side is one of my all-time favorite songs -- "A-hhh". It's certainly aptly named as you'll hear "Ohh" and "Ahh" frequently throughout the track. Pulsating analog synths and Kid Death's sensual crooning make for one crispy little nugget. See for yourself.

Track list:

A - Queen Bitch
B - A-hhh
