months we decided to make an EP with the songs "Svaveldioxid//Heroindöd/Drömmusik and Anicimex". We made 500 copies. After this Nillen left the band, Jonson started singing and Cutting became our bass player.Then we made the songs "Progeria of Power/Krossa NRP/I Skuggan av ett Krig". In February of '83 Cutting left the band and Konrad joined, then we went to the studio to record our EP "RAPED ASS": I think this to be our best record. In the start of '84 we changed bass player one more time, Sixten joined and we recorded our third EP "VICTIMS OF A BOMB RAID". Now I started playing bass and we have a new drummer: Patrick.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE BRAZILIAN BANDS?
-Charlie: I think the Brazilian bands are very good but it's the language that makes it not so good for us to listen to. I think it would be better if the bands sang in English.
