Obsession - Army of lovers

The Swedish trio Army of lovers formed in 1987. The three members, Alexander Bard, Jean-Pierre Barda and Camilla Henemark (a.k.a. La Camilla) had worked together previously in the band Barbie. Bard was the 'brain' behind the band, and La Camilla was the flamboyant frontwoman.

1991 was their most succesful year, with the release of 'Crucified', which became a worldwide hit, and its follow-up 'Obsession', the only single by the band that I wanted to own. The single reached number 1 in Finland, number 9 in the Netherlands and number 67 in the UK singles chart, but was also a hit in America and several other European countries.

My collection: 7" single no. 2135
Found: Grammofoonwinkel, Utrecht, August 2, 1994
Cost: 3 guilders
Tracks: 'Obsession' / 'Obsession (dub mix)'
