Politisk Avfall

Started as a hardcore punk band early in 1980 with this line up; Geir Løwe (guitar), Morten Løvik (drums, later solo as Morten Live At Wembely), Roger Løvik (vocals) and Finn Jøran Olsen (aka Niff) (bass). They had their debut concert in March 1983, before Løve quit and was replaced by Tor Raymond Olsen (aka Darre).

After that they did several concerts until early August 1984. Among these are a concert as support for UK Subs. Before this concert they got Marit Sjøvold and Gøril Vatshaug on backing vocals. Two tracks from this concerts can be heard on the compilation Various - Can A Butterfly Smash A Wheel?.

Charlie Harper liked the band and offered them a tour in England as support for UK Subs. Since the drummer was only 14 years at the moment his parents said no.

In August 1984 the drummer and both off the backing vocalists quit the band. Since they have said yes to play later that year, so they got Lars Nicolaysen (aka Skjit-Lars) on drums for a last concert.
