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 (?)

MLPs & EPs
? 001 ? ? ? 198? ...This could however be a reference to the TORCH debut mini on Tandan but I really don't know.

POOL 001

(SWO MAX 004)
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.

...and yes, they gave this 2nd pressing on the label a new unique cat#. Bonkers!
