Accelerating Blue Fish was a Swedish label releasing S.P.O.C.K and Page among others during the eighties and early nineties. In 1988 it released the by now classic vinyl compilation “Synthetic Sounds From Accelerating Blue Fish”. 33 years later that compilation finally gets a digital release.

“Synthetic Sounds From Accelerating Blue Fish” will land on all digital platforms on December 3. In addition to Page the compilation also features, among others, Sista Mannen På Jorden, Random Toxy (which was actually Ausgang Verboten who are also featured on this compilation) and Håkan Lidbo (under the name Libido).

Regarding Ausgang Verboten, they were a band from Malmö, Sweden, which was heavily influenced by Kraftwerk. The Band was formed by 16 year old Patrik Book in 1983, and later joined by Jesper Hanning.

In short it’s a real who is who in the early Swedish electronic pop scene.

Full track list:

  1. Page – “Vad Ska Jag Hitta På”
  2. Libido – “=⎹ _ – /⎹⎹ -⎿ _ / -“

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
