Listen to the Music With No Fear: Teddybears

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Jocke, one half of Stockholm’s Teddybears, explains the effect of the band’s formative years on its current sound, “Nowadays, there’s not a lot of punk in our music anymore I guess. We get some outlet for that kind of frustration in other areas of our lives, like painting, skateboarding and Nietzsche-reading.” Though it may not sound punk-heavy, in a time when punk has been reduced to a pop-culture term of endearment, having Iggy Pop voice “Well, I’m a punk-rocker, yes I am” over a Moog heavy pop track comes off as far more punk than what can be found in the pages of Alternative Press.
