Ulgebräk


Ulgebräk was a pop band from Gävle, Sweden, active from 1989 to 1995. The main lineup consisted of Jan Bidner (vocals and guitar) and Markus Åberg (vocals and keyboards), although they were expanded to a six- or seven-piece band live, sometimes including musicians from the reggae band Liondub. The name doesn't actually mean anything, although they made up various weird explanations in interviews: once they claimed it was Russian for "arch supports". Read more on Last.fm
Ulgebräk was a pop band from Gävle, Sweden, active from 1989 to 1995. The main lineup consisted of Jan Bidner (vocals and guitar) and Markus Åberg (vocals and keyboards), although they were expanded to a six- or seven-piece band live, sometimes including musicians from the reggae band Liondub. The name doesn't actually mean anything, although they made up various weird explanations in interviews: once they claimed it was Russian for "arch supports". Musically they were all over the place: from indie pop to experimental synthpop, with excursions into ska (mostly live).

They split up around 1995, when they moved to different parts of the country. Jan is now an IT admin at the University of Umeå, while Markus is a theatre sound engineer. Although there were a few group compositions and one cover version on each demo, most songs were written by one of the two main members. The lyrics were mostly in Swedish, though they used English and nonsense German in a few songs. Jan Bidner's songs were the more conventional pop songs, while Markus Åberg often wrote more experimental songs with absurd lyrics. Ulgebräk released three demo cassettes and one album, all on their own label Maggie Mae Records: Kliv ihjäl den (demo, 1990) Putt (demo, late 1990) Ner i dyn (demo, 1992) Hö-Hö (CD, 1994) Before they started using the name Ulgebräk, Jan and Markus were part of the quartet Maggie Mae and the Halleluja Brothers, who released a four-track 7" EP in early 1989.

Markus also released a solo cassette under the name Agent Oscillator in 1990, and later in the 90s was a live member of synthpop band Lorelei De Lux. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
