Artist: PHILEMON ARTHUR AND THE DUNG
Title: Musikens Historia Del 1 Och 2
Format: CD
Label: Silence
Country: Sweden
Price: $16.00
"CD release from 1992 which compiles the complete works of this strange Swedish duo, including their lone self-titled LP release from 1972 (which supposedly won a Grammy in Sweden(?) and is considered "the most cult album in Sweden ever") and a cassette-only follow up from 1987 (sounds like outtakes of the 72 sessions). The group is two Swedish males, who apparently have never been positively identified. The music they perform is in the realms of experimental folk-rock, with the opening track "In Kommer Gösta" featuring a devastating Godz-like brilliance (easily one of the memorable tracks in the entire Silence catalog). Shakers, wobbly effects, lethargic acoustic guitars, bedroom percussion and one of the most idiosyncratic band names ever -- for shambling stoner nonsense, this is Swedens finest entry into the field by far." - FE.

Artist: PHILEMON ARTHUR AND THE DUNG
Title: The Very Pest of Philemon Arthur and the Dung
Format: CD
Label: Silence
Country: Sweden
Price: $15.00
"Philemon Arthur and the Dung turned the music industry upside-down in 1972 by getting a Grammy award for "Best Swedish LP" and the music industry stopped the Grammy galas for 15 years in protest! They decided to start recording again in 1987, and this time it was a cassette packed in a tin can. Not very many people heard the songs on the cassette since they didnt want to open the can....and the music industry was relieved. These 20 brand songs were recorded between 1967-1972 in the bedroom of Philemon Arthur, and also included are the rest of the 11 songs from the cassette." - Silence.
