This is probably the most oxymoron thing of the day: a mirror post of Swedish zines posted at Mikael Sorling's blog Sodra Promenaden but with English translation in blog post despite zines being in Swedish. BUT....seeing some of the bands included in these zines you may want to have a look anyway, who knows there may be some hitherto unseen photos of your favorite bands etc. And if you are very polite I may offer to trasnalte some of the interviews...
Banan #1 1985
Made by "Helena J." from Åkersberga this zine includes a mix of things from interviews with bands to personal views to squatting and articles about exctinct animals. Band interviews includes: Disarm, The Past, RIF, Asta Kask, Cruel Maniax, Ur Funktion, Fear of War, The Bristles, Dr Anti-Skval etc.
Skottkärrans Ande #1 1984
Also from Åkersberga this zine, "The Spirit of the Handcart", was made by Peter Hirseland more famous outside of Sweden, perhaps, for having played in political crust legends Svart Snö.
