This is one I had been curious about since I saw it listed on eBay many years ago as (what else?) "powerpop". I finally found a copy and wasn't surprised to find that there's really no powerpop to be heard. The instrumental B side may be of some interest to synth fans. All instruments are played by Kenneth Skoog who has provided some more info. It was recorded in Kivik (very south of Sweden) with 300 copies pressed. He also released a CD of instrumental hard rock in 2000 called "Deflagration". In 1979 he was part of a band called Pharamond that played instrumental music in the styles of Wishbone Ash, Jimi Hendrix and King Crimson as well as some jazz-rock. He wanted the band to release a record but the other members weren't interested, so he went and did this one on his own in August 1980.
All of the Divshare audio links are dead. I haven't yet decided what, if anything, to do about it.

My Want List
Any good obscure punk/powerpop (especially Swedish, Swiss and Finnish) that I don't have such as:
CANADIAN DEMO/LIVE RECORDINGS - anything from The Unknowns, Zro4, The Negatives, Stark Naked and The Fleshtones, Extroverts, Airborne, Pat Bay and The Malahats, Sikphuxz, Woods Are Full Of Cuckoos, Parking Lot, etc
MASTERBEATS - Any cassette releases (Kitchener, Ontario, Canada band, early 80's)
MR. SCIENCE - Terror As Pop and any other cassettes (Canada, 1980s)
NILP - Dark Side Of Nilp cassette (Switzerland, c1983)
I'm mainly interested in punk and powerpop records and bands from 1977 - 1983 along with some synth/electronic things as well. I'm particularly interested in bands from Sweden, Switzerland and Finland, although if it is good it doesn't matter where it is from. If you have some obscurity that you think I might be interested in, drop me an email. If you're looking to hear something in particular, ask and I may have it.
