NYA LJUDBOLAGET ‎– Nya Ljudbolaget (1981, LP, Sweden)

NYA LJUDBOLAGET were a short-lived Swedish super-group of sorts from the early eighties. Their lone album was recorded and released in 1980 shortly after drummer Hans Bruniusson left SAMLA MAMMAS MANNA but before joining FLOWER KINGS. The rest of the lineup consisted of Ulf Wallander (FLOWER KINGS), Karl-Erik Eriksson (RAMLOSA KVALLAR) and Ove Karlsson, who also served alongside Wallander in ARBETE OCH FRITID.
The group disappeared after this release, and little information exists about them, but their lone legacy is a delightful blend of RIO, Eastern-influenced trance, folk and classical music. For their lone but memorable effort the band has earned a solid place here on ProgArchives.
