Jonas Johansson aka Tarmvred has released a couple of full-length albums in early 2000s, but he's known mostly for this particular EP, recorded in a collaboration with Jonas Hedberg. "Viva 6581" is one of the first rhythmic noise albums I've ever heard (it was almost a decade ago, when I discovered Noisebunker - probably the biggest industrial & noise blog at the time), and I still consider it to be one of the most interesting releases in the whole genre.

For the most part, "Viva 6581" was recorded using a MOS 6581 sound chip, which was featured in mid-80s computes such as Commodore 64 - so, the demoscene & retrocomputing enthusiasts might be interested in this EP too. Sadly, there were no news from Tarmvred since the time when I first heard "Viva 6581" (circa 2006), so I don't think we'll ever hear more from him...
