De Press

Profile:
Norwegian new wave band whose debut album Block to Block was one of the most influential Norwegian rock releases in the early 80's (alongside The Aller Værste!'s Materialtretthet). With their unmistakeable blend of typical early 80's dark new wave rock and Eastern European influences (complete with Polish refugee Andrej Nebb's often unintelligble Norwegian-English-Polish lyrics), they have remained an oft-referenced band in Norwegian rock. Original pressings of their early work fetch high prices on the second hand market, and although none of their subsequent album releases matched their debut in terms of acclaim and popularity, Block to Block is consistenly rated high on "best Norwegian albums of all time" lists.

Block To Block has a special place in my life and for many other Norwegians too. It was something else when it was released the same year i was born, and STILL is something else to this day. Always crop up on top 10 best norwegian albums lists of the last 40 years.
We used to play it at parties in the early 90´s. We thought it was hilarious with the polish lyrics, but it is a serious piece of work in the end if you lend it a sharp ear.
Legendary band that is STILL active to this day, although only Nebb is the only left, but at age 69, he still gives us Korva rock and has no plans to retire.
