126 - Graveyard Paradise

Asbjørn 'Asa' Krogtoft - vocals, guitar
Gunvar Marken - guitar
Oddvar Hansen - bass
Roger Saksenvik - drums

They originated from Bodø in the Northern part of Norway. With a Dylan-esque, electric folk-rock single titled "Graveyard Paradise" they gained massive national recognition, so much so that they still are remembered for it. Their album is a mixed bag of sixties pop, folk-rock and a couple of aspiring psychedelic efforts. 'Asa' later played with the interesting group Taboo (making the singles "Vampire Tango" and "Queen Of Spades" in 1968, but regrettably no albums).
