Biography

Tranås, Sweden (1983 – present)

Rövsvett (ass sweat) is a hardcore punk band from Tranås, Sweden, formed in 1983. Frank and Jerker decided to ask Rylle and Löken if they wanted to form a brutal hardcore band. The name felt natural since Motörhead, Ramones and Baccara already was taken. After many sweaty gigs with Rylle on guitar, Löken bass, Frank drums and Jerker on something that was supposed to resemble song, came their first democassette “Hunden beskyddar…” (1984).

It was followed up by the cult explained “Jesus var en tomte” (EP 1985). The year after “Ett psykiskt drama i 7 akter” and “Afflicted cries in the darkness of war” ( a brasilian compilation LP where the “Jesus…” EP were a part) was released. In 1988 “Sällan studsar en termos” (split LP) saw the light of day.

Then followed a split-EP with Raped Teenagers (1990) and Lepra Cliff (EP 1991). They also managed to play at the Hultsfredfestival.

After 10years it was time to summarize. They did that by release all their songs on the CD “Fatal Farts”, after “Den falske kakaoinspektören” (1994) Pirre joined. Therefore they had now two guitars, but the happiness didn’t last for long. At once after the tributeCD to Poison Idea “Burn the gay nuns” (1996) Rylle skips and moves to Örebro then it was Frank’s turn to say good bye. He did that after “All makt åt mig” (1998). The drums was then taken over by Ortman. He also introduced the cowwatch. Now when we passed year 2000 Rövsvett have become more active, but also angrier, more brutal and more merciless than ever…
