Agaton 6 (Sweden, 1977)

Although this record is listed in the International Discography of The New Wave book there is really nothing punk or even "new wave" about it. On the back of the sleeve you can see the band dressed in their best  "new wave" gear. The song "Ge mej ett glas vatten" ("Give Me A Glass of Water") is said to be a cover of Bob Dylan's "I Pity The Poor Immigrant". Not really caring much about Dylan, I'll leave that for someone else to figure out. Overall though, I still mostly like the record.
