I have many times got the question, why the hell do you collect those shitty tapes? Well – I collect Swedish hardcore tapes up to 1989 [more] of three reasons. Many tapes are really good, okay the sound quality might have been bad over the years and in many cases the audio quality was junk to start with. I also collect them so save the audio recording and the artwork. Most of my tapes have been recorded into FLAC files and I take pictures of them. I feel like these tapes are cultural artifacts worth saving. My third reason is simply that I am a collector-scum and love the collecting itself.

Crücifix was from Norrköping in Sweden, this is their second demo and according to Swedishpunk.com two more followed. The band also made an EP “Innan Vi Dör…” on Mikael Sörlings label Profitblaskan (which also was a zine). The vocalist Ricky Balkert later formed hardcore act Bizzarré Scums in the early 90s. And Rune And The Rockers? It’s appearently with Mr Sörling on vox, that’s all we know!

Considering that Mikael Sörling both out a tape and EP he seems to be less of fan today as he sold this copy number 1 to me.
