Small Swedish label that was the Metal-imprint of the more eclectic Tandan Records. A few titles also exists as Tandan-pressings. I've seen this referred to as a UK label on several occations, but that just can't be right. Maybe they had a UK office at some point and did some UK pressings as well? I'll try to straighten out this ? asap.
Nice logo btw! Kinda makes you wish they were a band and not a record company.
LPs start right below - MLPs/EPs start here ...and then there's these 2 releases that doesn't fit in anywhere (?)

|Torch||3 Track 12 Inch - Limited Edition For Export Only||12" EP||1984||The cover says "A Record Pool release / POOL 001" though the matrix etching reads SWO MAX 004, so we'll have to assume this was Sword Rec's 4th MLP/EP release.|
