Great post punk pop from Eskilstuna in Sweden. The band only released this single and did two songs on a compilation album before disbanding. The music is pretty standard wave/post punk but with an edge I really like. See for yourself:

I don't know anything about this band. This record was released on the very exciting label Replik Muzick, run by End of your garden. Aside from the Factory-induced post punk they released this record is full on weird jazz, sort of no wave with that punk energy. Great stuff!

This is a rare and exciting record. It was put out by Brute force records which was partly run by Umeå legend Lars Gillén. He also played drums on this one. I believe Mollrör were an development of the band Peppe & the Popping Peanuts, which later morphed into garage psych-rockers Jukon Speakers. The music here is strangely good produced psych/prog rock. Especially the song "Rönnskärsverken", concerning a major industry in nearby town Skellefteå, is a real knock-out!

Another cassette from the brilliant Patrik Markusson and his Green's Restaurant. At this point he was in full midi-mode but despite of this kind of synth-sound the music is still brilliant and full of interesting turns and stops. Do not miss this stuff!

Green's Restaurant were from Sweden and participated in the very interesting experimental scene in the late 80's. They released a lot of cassettes and one LP full of strange and wonderful music. This is the bands third release.

Hot Sox were an experimental new wave / post punk band from Finland. I don't know anything about them, but they released an excellent album called "Das kapital" which can be found on spotify and other streaming apps. Do not miss that album (and their fantastic cover of "Purple haze"). This is their last single before disbanding. Great plastic twist music!

Anathema were a short lived goth band based in Malmö. The band consisted of Stefan Celitsa and Tobias Lorentz, some synths and a drum machine. They only released this single which is a classic late 80's goth single kind of like The Mission, Sisters of Mercy or any German goth band. After Anathema Stefan started Colour Collision and Tobbe started working in the music business.
