"The state always has the sole purpose to limit, tame, subordinate, the individual - to make him subject to to some generality or other;
it's last only so long as the individual is not all in all, and it's only clearly-marked restriction of me, my limitation, my slavery." - Max Stirner

Paranoia Panorama - I begynnelsen var staten...
I begynnelsen var staten...(In the beginning the state was...).
7" VINYL EP contains 7 Punk songs (1992).
This 7" EP is political anthem opposing the national state, and is fully titled "In the beginning the State was, has always been and will forever be."
The front cover illustrates a lion (the Norwegian state symbol) with an axe killing the first man, Adam, before he eats of the apple knowledge lyiing down on the ground, dead.
The lyrics are very much political, and the EP contains a lyrics sheet in both Norwegian and English.
The EP contains 7 very good tunes, but is somewhat poorly mixed. The first song, Sol, is a popish song, but ends up in punk-fashion. The same applies to H.K.L. The rest of the songs are made in a purly punk and HC fashion.
A review in ROCK FURORE (#3/92) said this: ”This is the first vinyl from Snack Ohm Tapes since the punk collection “Tsjernobilly Boogie” in 86, released in cooperation with Humbug Tapes from the town of Voss. The clock seems to have stood still since then. Or perhaps the new generations have much to say
about militarism, nationalism, media-lies, hunger and alienation?....... Not a great musical experience, and the mixing isn’t to good either. Although; NOK 30 for seven songs, a colourful child-like front cover and a lyrics sheet enclosed is not that expensive.”
(J R Bruun)
A story referring to the title is also included on the back of the 7 "; and old man just want to keep up running his life in his own terms, and do his way of life, when make philosofic remarks about life and perticular his own life.
"The eyes have seen a lot comprehensible and uncomprehensible:"mans need for submission and mans lack of singleness and purpose. Life starts at birth, ends with death, and in between the great nothing. The emptiness is strenghtened by the eternal, true and godly state, so that mans blind loyality to freedomrestricted control-mecanism comes forth in its full paradox when mans scream for freedom.
He noticed he sat thinking when the doorbell rang, and one of his specially interested customer came in. "Well, well" was his last thought before going out to serve his customer: "In the beginning the state was, has always been, and will contine to be for eternity." Amen !"
