CORTEX - Rare Tracks LP 81 w Spinal Injuries 1983 w You Can't Kill The Boogeyman LP 85
REPOST Request: Cortex was a rock band from Gothenburg, which was active from 1980 - 1988. Front Figure and sole constant member was Freddie Wadling, ex-Livet Lever. The band is today best known for the song The Freaks, who are featured in the film God Save the King. Cortex grew out from Freddie Wadling's former band Liket Lever. Cortex was called at first (from January
1980) Koma Jesus, but they quickly changed the name into Cortex. 1981 they released their first 7inch at Heartwork Records. The band was initially very punk-related but then more towards into a decent new wave sound. Today, however, the band counted as the most post-punk band. The band changed its constant members, and even their song material was wide. Cortex was initially on the label Heartwork Records, run by Henrik Venant in Lund during the first half of the 80s, but then
switched to the Gothenburg-based Radium 226.05 label. Their legendary debut record Spinal Injuries came out 1983 (recorded 1981) and offers ten cool wave-rock-pop tunes, including the song 'The Freaks' which is today their most famous creation. Then many line-up changes accompanied the band and they released a live album plus two more. At the end of the 80s the band split up and and now has cult status.
