2003-12-30 - Changes on the site
We are currently redoing the whole site folderwise. There can therefor be some problems if you happen to access the page when we actually do the updates. If this happen, try again in ten minutes and the site will probably work.
2003-12-21 - Vacation
We will go on vacation from tomorrow, the 22nd, until the 26th of december. Orders that do come under this period of time will be served in the order they arrive.
The Human Waste/Personkrets 3:1 has been postponed since there have been some problems with the testpresses. We will wait for the problem to be solved rather than release something sounding like shit, donÂ´t everyone agree? Vi vÃ¤grar slÃ¤ppa nÃ¥got jÃ¤vla halvfabrikat!
The promotional record, Promo 2003, are almost complete, and will, as usual, be released between the 26th and 31st of december. The covers are handmade and spraypainted as we speak.

2003-12-06 - Next release - HALVEP012
We will release a split 7" EP with Anatomi-71 and Radioskugga. This will be out in the beginning of 2004 and include four songs by A-71, three by Radioskugga.

2003-12-05 - Layout for Educational tapes reissue
We are almost done with the layout for the trilogy set for the cassette release on Educational Tapes. This release will, however, miss one song on RÃ¤ttvisa (E.T.S.M. 011) and JÃ¤mlikhet (E.T.S.M. 012). This is because of that the original release where a little to long to fit in on a C60 tape.
2003-11-29 - Testpresses for the HALVEP011
