CITY OF WORMS-Quester-(Irre Tapes,Germany+Big Body Parts,Usa-c90-1989)

City Of Worms is a trio composed by :George Ericson, Jeph Jerman, Steve Beckner,
in this tape they have as additional performers : Jim O` Rourke, Dan Burke and Darren & Scott. 
In this long tape they offers us on the A side  9 tracks of  noise experiments made with analog and electronic instruments .On the  B side we`ll find a long  performance recorded live at the Downtownstudio on October 1987.
Everything was eventually mixed and mastered during September 1989.
Irre Tapes was a German label run by Matthias Lang 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 infos and contacts and writing occasionally reviews for various publications. Most of his Compilations should be seen as an attempt to promote lesser known artists and labels. Without doubt he was one of the driving forces of the German Tape Scene.
He finally called the label days quits in 1994/1995 but soon re-appeared as collaborating and networking artist Mr. Moto (2).
Big Body Parts was a label run by Jeph Jerman during the eighties from Colorado Springs. BBP continually released small edition experimental tapes by artists from Denver area, and tape networkers. For a while Lance Barton worked for this label. BBP pushed the limit in lo-fi tape manipulation techniques and site recordings, but also had a jazz/rock improvisational edge.(all info taken from discogs)
Enjoy it.
