Greens Resturant - The Non Essential
Was released 30th January 2013

Progress Origin is a not a sublabel to Progress Productions. But it´s in a way a
tribute to the pioneers of Swedish electronic music. Music that shaped what today is the sound of modern electronic music. From the time when tapes was traded and changed hands outside concerts and clubs. The music that inspired us all to do something of our own.

Important pieces of history FINALLY available on CD. The first release in this series is: Greens Resturant. A true Swedish electronic cult band that started already back in 1985. Greens Resturant unique way of mixing Minimal, EBM, synthpop and psychadelica with poetic and crazy lyrics quickly made them extremely popular back in the days. Mastermind Patrik Markusson has gone through loads of old tapes and 4-track porta-recordings to collect what can be considered the ULTIMATE collection of Green Resturant which has been given the name "The Non Essential" and is nothing less than 40 tracks on two CDs.

The material has been carefully remastered by one of Sweden's absolute top mastering personalities Håkan Åkesson that has worked on worldwide known mastering firm Cutting Room. We release this to give the old people a chance to finally hear the material in a way they NEVER expected and also for the new younger people to discover where their favourite bands has their roots. A very important and unique piece of Swedish Electronic Music and a
MUST for everyone interested in the history of Swedish Electronic History.

Progress Productions proudly gives you: Greens Resturant "The Non Essential" 1985-1991.
