Helou Kaet & Son n8-(Fanzine-Joukkomurha Products-Finland-1991)

Number 8 of this Finnish fanzine focused on short stories, poetries music , mail art and comics.I already posted the number 10 and the number 9.It was assembled and distributed by Jupe Luoma in the early 90s.Jupe was also into mail art and running the label Joukkormurha Tapes and the sublabel JM Tapes.
I posted quite few tapes by this Finnish label, you will find them here. 
This fanzine has few articles, short stories, some poetries, lots of nice graphix works and comics and more random stuff.
Few poetries are in English, the most of the articles/comics and other writings are in Finnish.
Enjoy it, if you are Finnish literate.

Hardcore crust punk Scottish legends Sedition released this full-length cd with almost all their discography in 2003.It came out with a 44 pages booklet reporting the original and amazing graphics works,the interesting lyrics and thoughts about them + more info.A very in depth research into the life and work of this astonishing band.

Alberto Fiori Carones-Solo Ed Esclusivamente-(ADN-Italy-1985)

Astonishing cassette by Alberto Fiori Carones,musician and mastermind of the label megamagomusic.
Full experiments of various nature on this old yet great k7 released in a  limited edition of 105 copies back in 1985.
Adn was an Italian electronic/experimental/industrial label based in Milan. ADN was run by Marco Veronesi, Piero Bielli and Alberto Crosta (with one Carla Crotti also involved at some point), although Alberto Crosta was the main international contact.
ADN was established in 1983 as the first Italian fanzine for experimental new music published in English. The very first issue was called "L'Amore del Nipote" which set the trend for all labels as acronyms of ADN. The fanzine published 8 issues through to Spring 1986, with the later issues (co-released with "Skeletal Work") including optional sampler cassettes. The booklet and cassette idea carried on with the series of various artist releases called "Out Of Standard".
Most of their early releases were ADN Cassettes. For their vinyl releases, post new-wave and industrial music came out on the label 'A Dull Note', whilst avant-garde and "RiO" Rock In Opposition (left-field experimental rock) releases came out on 'Auf Dem Nil'. There was also a short-lived CD label 'Alma De Nieto' and some other name variations. A few 'Auf Dem Nil' releases were also branded "Recommended Records Italia". In 2014 ADN has restarted with 3 new labels " Artisti del Novecento" (R.I.O. and Electronics) "Apparémment des Notes" (re-editions and obscure artists) and "Agnostic Dumplings Nursery" with the compilation dedicated to Marco Veronesi (who died in 2013)[info taken from discogs]

YOUTH OF TODAY-Live At VFW Hall, Albany.NY. 28th May 1986-(Not On Label-Usa-1986)



Another tape from the collection of Mahler Maze ,digitalized by him and kindly donated to this blog.
So big thanx  Mahler for this rare recording.
Here a note from him: "Legendary YOUTH OF TODAY live tape here, from when they supported GBH in Albany in May 1986. It's legendary because of the way they keep shitting on GBH & calling them names etc (GBH ,great big haircuts, fucking faggots , laughing at their drunk fans etc). All pretty funny stuff. The set itself is great & played with a lot of anger & passion. 12 tracks in 32 minutes. Ripped & mastered from a 30 year old cassette tape."
To complete this post I am adding 3 minutes video of this concert.
Great document,amazing gig and much more.
Enjoy it.

LIFE...BUT HOW TO LIVE IT?-Day By Day-(Konkurrel-The Netherlands-1990)


The band was formed in the summer of 1988. The members all frequented Blitz, a squatted building in the middle of Oslo, where many other notable Norwegian hardcore bands such as So Much Hate and Stengte Dører had their base in the late eighties. LBHTLI toured extensively, near 300 concerts in fifteen countries in the five years they kept together and managed to release a live album on Your Choice Records, produced by Tobby Holzinger. They split up in 1994, but have played three concerts later, one in 2002 celebrating Blitz' 20th anniversary, and two in 2008.(from discogs)
A great album:amazing guitar riffs,astonishing voice,personal and touching lyrics,kick-ass tunes and much more...
We should call this record a masterpiece.
I saw them playing live back in 1990 and they were just explosive.Incredible show.
Enjoy it.

CHAOS C.H./ADDICTION-Hard Core Punk Split Tape-(Not On Label-Japan-1994)

Split tape with two japanese bands playing HC punk.
Chaos C.H. (C.H. stands for Channel) and Addiction.
The recordings are a bit chaotic/noisy + diy style and the lyrics are pretty much political messages.
Punk as Fuck.

KIA KARMA-Untitled-(Self Released-Poland/Thailand-2007)

This is an excellent cd of esoteric electronickx!
A kind of very limited production released in 2007 and distributed only among close friends.The nickname of this artist is Caramadeha (or Brat Salo- old nick name).The cd evolves in sonic areas such as ambient-noise,ritual,magick and tantra music.
A bandcamp page about this project offer us other amazing productions,all as free download yet this cd is not there.
There is also a myspace page where you can find more info about this obscure yet brilliant program. Caramadeha is also involved in the musical project Sigill,they released an astonishing split cd with Different State,you`ll find it here.
A very big thanx to Caramadeha for giving me permission to post this pure gem and to Marek for introducing me to such great artist.
Enjoy it.

RECUSANT/PORC BLEU-Last Squeal-(Self Released-France-199?)

Amazing split tape with two french bands  active in the 90s.Both bands play a strange and difficult music to describe.
Deviated,psychotic,broken rhythms, different vocals,weird lyrics,crazy passages,hilarious changes of  song`s structures and more  deranged alternated jingles make those bands standing aside lots of other punk bands,the spirit is there but the music goes beyond the usual punk clichés reaching very personal and somehow abnormal dimensions of song writing.

For many things both bands reminds me the music of Headache,infact,they are all friends,and Recusant released a split tape and a split 7inch with the french band based in Leeds:Headache, in 1994.

This tape comes in a very special cardboard
package including an info sheet.(all the relevant scans included in this folder).
The release date is not stated anywhere,I guess this came out in the mid 90s.

I love this tape.It is a small masterpiece of deranged fantasy and extreme "off the this planet" creativity.
Enjoy it.

v.a-Recompilatorio Benefico Liberacion Animal "Angry Voices"-(Not On Label(?)-Spain(?)-199?)

This tape is a great international compilation featurings various bands playing Sludge,HC Punk and somehow heavy riffs with screamed angry vocals.It was a  benefit for an animal rights organisation as the name in spanish states.
I am sure it came out with a booklet explaining the benefit and  giving us info about those good bands,unfortunately  I`ve lost the booklet therefore I have very little clues about this production and those bands,any soul out there with more info about this great cassette???
I `d love to know more.
Enjoy it.
