CONTENT
(bold = exclusive track / normal = non-exclusive track / italic = non-metal)



Side A:
1. CIRCUITS - Captain Spacepickles
  Soft, keyboard-dominated rock.
2. THE MOOSE - The Moose
  While pending from low-key Hard Rock to Heavy NWOHM they manage to turn a story of the King of the forest on the revenge trail into something quite epic, at least thematically. Their song on the very first Pang Rec. comp "Skval" from the same year + the one on Whale Rec's later "Festival" comp from '86 were both more on the Classic Rock-side of things.
3. MATS HAGBERG BAND - Do You Really Know (How Much I Love You)
  Sloppy pop.
4. ILKKA & UFFE - The Leaves Are Many, The Root Is One
  Blues rock.
5. TUNG GUNG - Som En Katt
  Mellow pop-rock.
6. GUAIJARI - Slumreggae
  Reggae.

Side B:
1. SWEDE MACHINE - Ge Dig Av
  Schlager-pop.
2. COURAGE - City In The Night Time
  Funky/jazzy rock.
3. APGNÄGG - Lizard
  Rock.
4. DAMN - Got Some Music For Ya'
  Jazz-rock.
5. MISSEX - Feta Barn
  Amateur/novelty rock/punk.
6. MICHAEL FINN - Stay
  Soft pop.
