INCENSE-(Fanzine-France-1992[?])

Here another amazing fanzine by Cyril Herry , I already spoke about him when I posted the zine Le Journal Des Ruines ,the tape Ashes To Ashes and the compilation tape  Anywhere Out Of World.
His label was called Incense just like this fanzine which was one of his first productions,as far as I recall.
It is a very beatiful B/W fanzine with poetries + reports about the bands:Avec Mordor,Misanthrope (in French only) and astonishing pictures.
"The First Incense Paper is about many dark forms,about memories and strange people...It was a lots of work of photography...you can`t read the poetries but the pictures speak like words...I am calling your imagination to use  your deep mind,I hope you like it." those are few words written by Cyril in his letter that came with this great fanzine.
Enjoy it.

BAD BRAINS-Live in New York and Stevenage-(A.Z. Distro - Italy -199?)

Bad Brains are an American hardcore punk band formed in Washington, D.C., in 1977. They are widely regarded as among the pioneers of hardcore punk,[1][2][3] though the band's members have objected to this term to describe their music.[4] They are also an adept reggae band, while later recordings featured elements of other genres like funk,[5] heavy metal,[1] hip hop and soul.[5] Bad Brains are followers of the Rastafari movement.[5(from wikipedia).
This tape is a re-issue by the italian A.Z. distro managed by a  @Punx collective from Pavia(northern Italy),the A.Z . comes from their fanzine called Astro Zombies.
The live recording is pretty good,not many info on the cover sleeve.
Enjoy it.

This is one of the very first shows Punishment Park ever did as a band. It was support for the band Stage Dolls in 1991. The show took place in Oshallen in Osøyro south of Bergen in Norway. The band played songs from their now legendary self-title first album which was released in august 1991. This is a very rare recording of the band from that period. And it has been a secret up till now (even for the band) that someone did record this show back then. The line up: Kjell - guitar, Claes - bass, Pez - drums, Anja - vocals. Enjoy Punishment Park live from 1991.

DOGSTAR COMMUNICATIONS-Ain Soph-(Dogon Musick-Usa-1997)

Dogstar Communications seems to be an american project where few artists join forces to play a kind of non-conventional tribal/esoteric music mixing some dark ambient,etheral voices,echoes of some unknown electronic passages and obscure rhythms.
A great album for the lovers of certain mesmerizing occult powers and gripping reverberations.
Enjoy it.

MiSMAS-Untitled-(Snait-Italy-1996)

There are very few info on the cover sleeve of this tape yet quite few things make me conclude that this band (or project) is somehow strictly tied to the band Inzirli, band already covered in this blog.
Same town,same dialect used to sing some songs,the handwriting on the actual tape,Snait is the same label that released the very first ep by Inzirli and eventaully the last song on the B side of this tape called, in fact ,Inzirli.
As for the music expect personal and rhtymic/frantic off the edge HC Punk mixed with lots of different influences(rock,noise,folk...)!
A great cassette with an excellent recording.
If this is a side project by Inzirli or friends of them remains a mistery to me yet this is very enjoyable.

v.a.-Mad Pride-Nutters With Attitude-(Mad Pride Records-UK-2001)

Gread cd compilation dedicated to the Mad Pride:a mass movement of the users of mental health services, former users, and their allies. The first known event specifically organized as a Pride event by people who identify as psychiatric survivors/consumer/ex-patients was in Toronto, Canada when it was called "Psychiatric Survivor Pride Day", held on September 18, 1993. It was first held in response to local community prejudices towards people with a psychiatric history living in boarding homes in the Parkdale area of the city, and has been held every year since then in this city except 1996.[1] By the late 1990s similar events were being organized as Mad Pride in London, England and around the globe from Australia to South Africa and the United States, drawing thousands of participants, according to MindFreedom International, a United States mental health advocacy organization that promotes and tracks events spawned by the movement.[2]

Mad Pride activists seek to reclaim terms such as "mad", "nutter", and "psycho" from misuse, such as in tabloid newspapers. Through a series of mass media campaigns, Mad Pride activists seek to re-educate the general public on such subjects as the causes of mental disabilities, the experiences of those using the mental health system, and the global suicide pandemic.[citation needed] One of Mad Pride's founding activists was Pete Shaughnessy, who later died by suicide.[3] Robert Dellar and Simon Barnet were among the other founders of the movement. Mad Pride: A celebration of mad culture records the early Mad Pride movement.[4] On Our Own: Patient-Controlled Alternatives to the Mental Health System, published in 1978 by Judi Chamberlin, is a foundational text in the Mad Pride movement, although it was published before the movement was launched.[5]

Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck-Feld-(Bandaged Hand Produce-UK-1995)

Rudolf Eb.er’s research and work leads down - and through - the nethermost regions of the human psyche. Combining abreactive and cleansing actionism with sonic rituals and psychoactive acoustics, Eb.er generates audio-environments into which he plants grotesque psychomagick rituals and tantric exercises to trigger a higher awareness. Eb.er aka Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck founded Schimpfluch in 1987.(from his bandcamp page)
On his Official webpage you`ll find lots of info about his works,actions,rites and exhibitions,audioreleases,sound examples and webshop.
For all of you curious to know more I have found also an intersting interview on TinyMixTapes webpage.
Bandaged Hand Produce was the personal tape labal managed by All Brentnall aka Mleshst who founded this label in 1992 but in 2001 All destroyed all master tapes, thus closing the book on BHP. 
To complete this post I am attaching here a great video performance + the info taken from that YouTube channel,you`ll find lots of other cool videos about his other performances on youtube.
Enjoy it.
[f:a~r]a_w>a~y^
part 1 
part 2 
 "Rudolf Eb.er, a.k.a. Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck, founded Schimpfluch in December 1986, and coined the concept of “psycho-physical tests and trainings“. This approach deals with therapeutic and analytical actions and reactions of the psyche, the body, and of senses and realities (of both performers and audiences) in a radical, critical but also liberating way - an attack on the mind as well as a stimulation of the senses. Although dwelling in obscurity, Eb.er has gained immeasureable respect for his performances as well as for his unique cut-up techniques; a strict compositional yet organic process that some say is Viennese actionism put into sound, but probably has more to do with martial arts attack patterns, where even the silences between sounds describe a composure that causes maximum tension." - undertheradar.co.nz

"Rudolph Eb.er is an unsung hero, and you should be afraid of him. He's the GG Allin of "electronic music." But don't write it off as shock. Even though Mr. R Eb.er has been known to smear shit on the walls of art galleries, R&G is no mere shock-value schlock. Anything the man does wields memorable power. Besides being frightening enough to cause people only be able to laugh nervously in reaction during performances, he really has created some of the most interesting and effective splice recordings/compositions on earth." - Webofmimicry.com
