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.

Astral Dance - Mindgate LP 1986

Weird album that seems to be getting more and more expensive. I don't know much about the band. Seems that they were based in Stockholm, Sweden and consisted of two guys. Although it looks like a new age-record it also has elements of more experimental stuff and symphonic rock.

Öyvind Fahlström - Öyvind Fahlström i etern - Manipulera världen 2CD 1999

The Swedish master of text sound composition, Öyvind Fahlström, made two very exciting radioplays in the 60's. In this great and sold-out book we can hear almost the complete versions of "Fåglar i Sverige (Birds in Sweden)" and "Den helige Torsten Nilsson (The holy Torsten Nilsson)". This is experimental poetry / narrative in it's most pure form. Great stuff.
