2 stars Obscure Swedish Prog-Psych outfit,who was formed in 1973 in the city of Lund in souther Sweden.In February 1974 the band attempts their first live performance,while a mass of live gigs would follow.1975 finds RADIOMOBEL having suffered from line-up changes,but this wasn't enough to prevent the band from releasing their ''Tramsebox'' debut.

A private press actually, ''Tramsebox'' was reportedly released in a member's basement,carrying all the problems of such a recording.The mix is pretty amateur,the vocals are too loud sometimes,while the drums have a very cheap sound.Musically speaking,this a decent release of Psychedelic Rock with lots of progressive elements by a band with a typical rock instrumentation and a limited use of keyboards.Some ideas in here are very cool and interesting with guitarist Andrus Kangro delivering some smooth solos and obscure chords close to ALGARNAS TRADGARD.The vocals,though a bit high in the mix as refered,are quite strong and expressive and the compositions are characterized by the alternating dynamic jams and the relaxing psych passages.The bass work is a question here,as its sound is almost buried in the production.The overall result is a good yet not fully conveincing Prog-Psych release by a talented band,but the main problem around will always be found in the amateur recording procedures.If you don't mind of the bad sound,RADIOMOBEL's ''Tramsebox'' might be of some interest.
