Fresh from rocking out with the considerable Norwegian contingent at massive Texas fest SXSW vow125-framsida[1]Bergen band Ungdomskulen (Norwegian school for 13-16 year-olds…) have slowly been getting attention now that their debut album Cry Baby has hit the shops. According to the band themselves their guitars sound like they’ve been  ‘possessed by demons’, and that’s a reasonably fair assessment. Combining adolescent lyrics with epic, spiky, thrashy jamming sessions and new-rave sensibilities Ungdomskulen come across as a great hulking punk-prog beast, and a danceable one at that. With more than a few great tunes. Oh to be young again.
