Recorded on a Otari 8 channel tape recorder in Flora & Fauna studios at Maria Skolgata in Stockholm. The drums were recorded under the stairwell of the building which led to the police being called to the studio. Luckily all tracks were laid down before the officers arrived.
This album was later released by US label Galaxy Gramophone in 2005. That version featured 5 bonus tracks that was recorded in the bedroom of Henrik von Euler in Luthagen, Uppsala in 2002. On the demo it was Olle Nilsson on drums.
