  1. Hej, Hej igen, Hej då (Hi, Hi again, Hi there) (2:28)
  2. Pluxemburg (10:42)
  3. Boa (1:36)
  4. Elektroplux (4:40)

  7. Trubbel (5:15)
  8. Ende Dataton (5:00)
  9. Automobilen (The Automobile) (0:47)

  11. Piano Boj (7:48)
  12. Den Nya Världen (The New World) (2:16)
  13. AAA (4:08)

As a debut-album, it's very competent. Improvisational electronica in the vein of Kraftwerk and Boards of Canada, but with a definite goofy sound, this album is something special. Although when compared to their newer works, it might seem messy, there are some definite good tracks inbetween, especially Hej, Hej igen, Hej då, Elektroplux (which was also released as a single) and Herr Preset.

The cover art features a naivist drawing of a messy studio with keyboards and cables lying about.
