à;GRUMH… featured in a series of comic books

I received today a series of six comic books by Tomas Zackarias Westberg a.k.a. TΔ25 sAMOT who was the creator and manager of à;GRUMH…’s Swedish fan club in the late 1980’s.

Tomas is a talented visual artist. These books are a sort of autobiography from his young years and his discovery of Electronic Body Music known in Sweden at the beginnings as “Synth”. The books mention and/or show bands as Front 242, Nitzer Ebb, Skinny Puppy, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk and of course à;GRUMH…!

The books also give you a list of tracks to listen to as you read each volume. 😊👍🏼

It also depicts his relationships with his friends, the conflicts with his parents about the way he dressed or the music he listens to and thus, gives us a particular insight in the Swedish society of the late eighties. It’s human and interesting and also fun to read.

The books, which are all bilingual (English/Swedish), can be ordered from shop.tzw.se

Congratulations to Tomas for a job well done!! 👍🏼👏🏼
