All music and lyrics by Sven-Åke Johansson.


released January 1, 1985


"A record for those who like Johansson's deliberately contradictory and certainly whimsical solo concerts. An acoustic snapshot that inevitably reflects only one aspect of the whole and yet reflects far more than the moment: a distinctive musical practice that has grown over the years."
- Jazz Podium

"The Swede Sven-Åke Johansson is an institution in European jazz, and anyone who has ever experienced one of his Dadaist stage performances with drums, voice, and accordion will not soon forget it. Johansson's records only reproduce a small portion of the stage action - an inevitable defect in a musician who has so radically dedicated himself to the unrepeatable event in front of the audience. "Vinyl records and plastic flowers" recorded live in Bremen, therefore shows him above all as a drum virtuoso. If you know him, you may be able to form a vague idea of ​​how he produced these sounds, based on the recorded audience reactions (collective laughter, lonely, compulsive single giggling, astonished murmurings and others). But even those who do not know him, will be fascinated by the gruff-pensive-senseless phonetics of his poetry and the density of his drumming."
- Giessener Anzeiger
