Krim U LP

Just Another D.I.Y. Punk Label

"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

Krim U : 1981 - 1983):

 

S.O.T.-05/SSP-002 - Northern Norwegian Postpunk/New Wave band (2015).

 

Krim U is a well known north-norwegian postpunkband from Narvik city. They were very active in 1981 and 1982, playing live and had many harcore fans in Bodø, Harstad and Narvik. And still has a lot of fans, all over Norway.

 

The bands name; KRIM U is a a shortened form of the words; KRIMinell Ungdom, meaning "criminal youth". The music can be described as a melodic and sensitive but poetic rock in their own style. The lyrics are at their best just wonderful:"What ever happened, forever will happen again. Here's no mercy or compassion." - from the song; Evighet (Eternity). The love of life, the urban as such, or another person are often expressed in the lyrics. The lyrics are very often written by Vidar Aam.

 

Krim U started up by 4 members, but gradually over the years shortened. The only person that is left from the original crew is Vidar Aam on vocal and multiple instruments. He wrote many of the songs on the disc. And he continues to play and act today in a band with other people. And he is a well known artist today as well.

Tinnsoldat (Tin Soldier)

 

Steadfast tin soldier

Standing on earth is always ready

Ten thousand tin soldiers

Defy bombs, smoke and grenades

Where are thoughts you had yesterday

Where is the heat you had yesterday

Ten thousand tin soldiers

Thousands of bombs, smoke and grenades

 

Do you remember the words you said us

Remember you the promise you gave us

we march

we liquidates

we will crush

we should use

The end is very near!
