    I have a 38-min DVD listed as being in Ersbodaskolan, Umeå, Sweden in 1986. Is this the same show, and one of the dates is wrong? Or did they play there both in 85 and 86? The tracklist on my DVD is
    1. The Plague
    2. Lost in Time
    3. Be Aware (only known recorded version of this track)
    4. 1995
    5. unknown title (only known recorded version of this track)
    6. Atlantic Ring
    7. Hang On
    8. Swords and Chains

    Lineup:
    Anders Zackrisson - vocals
    Mårten Edlund - guitar
    Michael Lundholm - guitar
    Torbjörn Moen - bass
    Lars-Åke Edström - drums

    Ersbodaskolan are not the same gig as "Live in Umeå". I have the Ersbodaskolan DVD to, got it from the guitarist a while ago. He labeled it as 1986 so it was recorded 1 year after the Umeå gig. (yes)

    Live In Umeå have this tracklist:
    1. The Plague
    2. 1995
    3. Going Insane
    4. From a Forgotten Time
    5. Fight and Die
    6. Atlantic Ring
    7. Borderline
    8. Swords and Chains

    Gotham City is a great band, really. When I first heard their single I got chocked, I thought with myself: DAMN! THIS IS EVERYTHING I'VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR!. Since then, I periodically check strappado's blog. Then I found Insane, another great band.

    Me to man, me to!
    I have contacted the guy who put them up at the Band från Söderhamn website several times!.
    Haha I have even offered him $$ for mp3's or a tape/CD-R copy, but no replies so far :(

    We should start spamming him with e-mails requesting full songs!

    Strappado thanks for this great list!

    I don't know very well the swedish scene but some bands like Heavy Load, Axewitch, Parasite, Universe, Arrow, Witch, Sacrifice and Hels are really great!
