Musketörerna - Bortom Alla Ord 7" 198?

Great very obscure single from Sweden. This was their only release. Sounds a bit like Echo & the Bunnymen!

Temp - Kärlekssång 7" 1983

Fantastic band from Gothenburg. They sound a lot like Gang of four! Great hard driving post punk. This is their first single.

Tapehead - Live At Galleri 14k April 81 Cassette 1981

Tapehead were T.S Hoeg, Per Jacobsen, Niels Thomsen and sometimes Vagn E Olsen. They released two tapes on legendary label Gry Records. I think this is the first one. The music is elements of free improvisation, free jazz, and straight up experimental sounds. Great stuff!

Lix - No. 2 7" 1982

Interesting new wave-band from Örebro in Sweden. This was their first singel, released on Sjunne Ferger's FAT Records and tapes. This is great new wave-pop a bit like Talking Heads or B52's. Later on they released an album.

Lister / Johnny Yen - Pop Cycles LP 1985

Excellent double bill from these Norwegian gentlemen. I noticed that Johnny Yens side of this record is up on Spotify, but, sadly, Listers great side is missing from the whole internet. Please get this masterpiece!

Mekano Christmas Party LP 1985

Obscure synth and pop compilation from the short-lived Mekano records. Among the better known acts on this one we can see Car Skid and Crash, Paris Bizarre (one of Tom Wolgers projects) and assorted bits done by Janis Bokalders. Excellent stuff if you like this sort of plastic synth music!

Fifty/Fifty - 50/50 LP 1983

Interesting experimental record by two guys from Danish pop band Voxpop. These four tracks were, as the insert tells us, some experiments recorded on tape at home. Not ambient, as I thought it would be, but rather some jazzy funk tracks, experimental synth and bleakness.
