Label: Östgöta Correspondenten #: ÖC001 Country: Sweden
Info: A rock-competition for bands from the Östra Götland-region of Sweden, organized and sponsored by the local morning paper Östgöta Correspondenten resulted in this curious split-LP affair. Winners Weine Wräk's got the whole of side A while the runner-ups got one song each on side B.

Side A:
1. WEINE WRÄK'S POPORKESTER - (Ge Blomman Vatten) Innan Solen Dör
  Dead-on the kind of very "talented" rock/pop/reggae band destined to win these sort of competitions back in the day. Thankfully so utterly boring and inoffensive they were bound to be buried & forgotten 1-2 years later. One of the most vile & detestable genres in music history in this bitter reviewer's not-too-humble opinion...
2. WEINE WRÄK'S POPORKESTER - Warm Winter

Side B:
1. STRINGS - Searching
  PopRock w/ a 60's touch.
2. BAHROCK - Vänner Ändå
  Rock.
3. DIZZINESS - Crusin'
  Mellow semi-ballad w/ some half-decent attempts at HM riffing. The same Dizziness who did an extremely rare 12" a few years later.
4. EXCESS - Funderingar
  Powerpop/pop.
5. SKENETH BEDRAHR - Moralen Tar Vi Se'n
  Funky pop.
6. AXEWITCH - Axewitch
  Olde Metal heavy as lead turning into gold, mean'n'pounding and surely making The Priests blush with pride. This theme-song of theirs never got rerecorded, but an earlier (inferior) demo version is featured on the High Vaultage CD reissue of "Pray For Metal".
