Not long after announcing some cracking reissues, one of Sweden’s finest rock bands have now released their second covers album. In 1994 Sator released the much-loved ‘Barbie-Q-Killers’, and now, all these years later, have finally followed it up with the aptly-named ‘Return of The Barbie-Q-Killers’, delivering another deep dive into a variety of “obscure punk songs”.

‘Return of The Barbie-Q-Killers’ is the band’s tribute to bands such as Redd Kross, 999, The Undertones, The Boys, White Flag, The Go-Go’s, The Normals and many, many more – and far more obscure! In fact, there are an incredible 24 tracks on this CD (with 29 apparently on the vinyl record version!).

While it would take too long to going through all the songs here (many of which are indeed very alternative), you can rest assured that the album is everything that Sator fans would want, especially those who have been waiting a long time for this covers sequel. Particular highlights are the two first singles – ‘Get Out of My Way’, originally by Blitzkrieg Bop, and a superb cover of The Katrina & The Waves’ ‘Brown-Eyed Son’, which has prompted me to review my own opinion of that band.

There is of course a cover The Boys in here, and ‘Backstage Pass’ sounds as glorious as one might expect. This record does a good job of giving some air time to a lot of forgotten or generally unknown songs, and it’s an album the fans have been waiting a long time for. Now they’ve finally got it –  and I know they’re loving it.
