KULTIVATOR : BARNDOMENS STIGAR (SWEDEN'81)
Plus 2 Bonus Tracks
Kultivator is a Swedish band as unique as unclassifiable.This was formed in 1978 by the nucleus of Tunnelbanan (Stefan Carlsson, Johan Svärd and Johan Hedrén), symphonic prog rock band highly influenced by YES and GENESIS,the guitarist Jonas Linge whose playing is reminiscent of Phil Miller and the soprano Ingemo Rylander.The band split just after the release of their first and unique album,due to the apparition of Punk-Rock and New-wave that appealed more to people at that time.The LP named "Barndomens Stigar" recorded in 1981 was reedited on CD in 1992.On that occasion,the band reformed in order to release two bonus tracks (#9 & #10). Today,the members of Kultivator follow various artistic solo careers (music,theater and teaching).
Kultivator's music:a vast field of investigations!It seems impossible in a first approximation to classify them in a musical category rather than in another.Indeed,the facets of their music are so numerous,and one can notice the same about their influences,and their originality taken from their folkloric Swedish roots.The band itself recognized the following influences:Magma,King Cimson,Hatfield & the North,Henry Cow,Art Bears,Gentle Giant,Art Zoyd and Univers Zero.A true hybrid to sum up that blends influences from Zeuhl,Art Rock,Canterbury,RIO and symphonic progrock.
