SATANIC MALFUNCTIONS-Hellbound-(Teacore-UK-1988)

Fast, brutal, to-the-point punk/hardcore/crust/thrash attack from Scarborough. 
Formed in the mid-1980's, following the demise of S.A.S (2) Reformed in 2013 (Satanic Malfunctions (2)) with Ade as the original member as well as Yaga and Ryan and Kai from Belligerent Declaration. Another line-up consists solely of Stuart Duchart (Satanic Malfunctions (3)). (from Discogs)

NISTRI-FIORI CARONES-Nistri-Fiori Carones-(ADN-Italy-c40-!988)

Amazing collaboration between Vittorio Nistri(keyboards, effects, sampler and Alberto Fiori Carones(guitars) with an extra help on few tracks by Sandro Biagi(saxophone) and Barbara De Stefani(vocals)!
In those 40 minutes, they mix and mash a good dose of experiments touching the no wave, the ambient, the synth-pop and somehow a bit of electro-rock. Definitely a tape with some original music and sounds.
ADN was established in 1983 as the first Italian fanzine for experimental new music published in English, released lots of tapes and some vinyl of industrial/electro/noise until the early 90s and went on a long hiatus.
ADN restarted their activities in 2014, their actual webpage is here.
Enjoy it.

v.a.-IRRRRRE!!!The Best of Irre Tapes 001-015-(Irre Tapes-Germany-c90-1989)

A great sampler taking assorted tracks from the various Irre Tapes released until 1989...the result is a very eclectic compilation with many music styles: new wave, punk, synth-pop, minimal, electro post-punk, experimental electronics and more. 
 Irre Tapes was a German label run by Matthias Lang (2) which evolved out of the IRRE Fanzine he published regularly during the early 1980's covering New Wave, Post Punk and the German Underground. In true DIY spirit, he supported the international network of small labels and fanzines through editing the free IRRE Newsletter to spread info and contacts and writing occasional reviews for various publications. Most of his Compilations should be seen as an attempt to promote lesser-known artists and labels. Without a doubt, he was one of the driving forces of the German Tape Scene.
 This label is been covered in this blog many times, a Discogs page about it is here.
Enjoy it.

HEADACHE-Discography-(Life Is Abuse-USA-2005)

Full cd with complete discography by this rather bizarre band from Leeds, although most of them were actually foreigners, nevermind a nationality Headache forged a music that is difficult to describe. 
Deviated, psychotic, broken rhythms, crazy vocals, weird lyrics, deranged passages and hilarious changes of song`s structures are all the ingredients for their rather strange music`s recipe yet we can call it HC Punk..., maybe. 
This great cd comes with a long booklet reporting lyrics and weird graphics-work drawings by Birdy,(the drummer)!
As far as I know, after they split up Titi` and Max formed Jmen Fous in Lausanne (Switzerland).
Life Is Abuse is a label active since 1992, although their official webpage is still on they are no longer trading, selling or releasing new material.
Enjoy this amazing cd.

DEAD VOICES ON AIR-Hafted Maul-(Invisible-USA-1995)

Dead Voices on Air (DVOA) is Mark Spybey's main musical project. It was formed in 1992 when he emigrated to Canada from his native England. Using improvisation and sound layering as a source for their music, DVOA blends processed sound from primitive instruments and toys into rhythmic structures or dark clusters of ambient sound. The result is music for the eyes. This is not ambient chill-out, nor is it music for wallpaper. It is organic, eclectic improvisation, cut up and spat out. Either framed into short pieces of music or rough blocks of noise. Panambience is the term coined that perhaps frames this approach most adequately. (from Discogs)
 Spybey has worked under the name of Dead Voices On Air (DVOA) for twenty -four years. He’s released numerous albums and collaborated with a variety of people, including members of Can, Faust, Swans and others. He was a member of Zoviet-France and Download. Other projects include Reformed Faction, Beehatch, Gnome and Spybey, Propeller and is an executive with the Dataist International. (from his Bandcamp page)
 Invisible Records is an independent record label based out of Chicago that has been giving artists a voice since 1989. The label is owned and run by Martin Atkins. Invisible is the main organiser of the Underground, Inc. association of independent labels.
