A group from Bergen formed in 1970. Thue, Thue and Halvorsen earned their living as musicians during the local staging of the "Hair" musical. Their first album was a really mixed bag with moments of both glory (the beautiful, pastoral "Couple Of Freaks", the energic progressive rock of "Don't Look Back" and the warbling, quasi-psychedelic "Fly") and failure (the hopeless "Opus 1", the painstakingly naive "All The Time" and the tedious "So Long"). Main writer Ove Thue had a fascination for The Beach Boys and The Beatles, resulting in some favorable vocal arrangements. The problem for Saft was the lack of a specific sound and the mixture of English and Norwegian lyrics.
Their second single "People In Motion", a really banal and annoying song, won a European radio hit contest and soon sold in large quantities.
European radio hit contest and soon sold in large quantities.
"Horn" managed to maintain a more homogenous sound throughout, mixing song-based jazzy progressive rock with American folklore.
The group slowly drifted apart with Trygve Thue joining Rune Walle in the short-lived group Hole In The Wall. Walle followed Thue back to a revamped Saft. Their new album Stev, Sull, Rock & Rull (1973) merged simple rock'n'roll, folk and country to much critical and popular acclaim, but will be of restricted interest to foreign collectors several decades later.
