Färgelanda Spelar Och Sjunger LP 1988
Label: Omic Records #: LP 111 Country: Sweden
Info: From the small town of Färgelanda comes yet another of these "let's put out a record with EVERYTHING that sounds from our small backwater town!"-kind of album. Its one metallic contribution is also the only one that even qualifies as "popular music", but it's a decent one so here you go.
..oh, and I think that's a runestone on the cover - pretty Metal, yes?
