Good documentary of a legendary Swedish punk band

Review of Ebba the Movie (1982)

Review of Ebba the Movie (1982) movie, by Stefan Stenudd


Of course the title of the movie is an irony, reminding of Abba, the Movie, a very different cup of tea. The legendary Swedish punk rock group Ebba Gron took its name from a codeword used by Swedish police when moving in to arrest a German terrorist. Yes, they wanted to provoke.

       So does the movie, with rude behind the scenes and close shots of the chaotic life, which was this wild band on tour. A climax of sorts, is when the band's lead singer Joachim Thastrom plays a church organ, singing 'Hang God'.

       I'm not sure about how good this movie would have been, with a lesser band than the one followed, and a less charismatic leading role than its singer, but there it is. A good thing that the band got documented this ambitiously, at the height of their artistic frenzy.
