CITIES IN DESOLATION-Demo,Anavyssos Session Pt.1-04/02-(1000+1 TiLt Recordings-Greece-2002)

Another cd and another project by my friend Jason, owner of the label 1000+1 Tilt Recordings a label covered in this blog many times and also prolific musician involved in many acts.
This project started as a trio and after became a duo.
Experimental music made with synth, cello, bass guitar, filtered voices and various machines. It was recorded during spring 2002 in a basement, my copy has two extra tracks, one recorded live in Mostar (Bosnia) and another one from their gig in Ljubliana (Slovenia).
The music evolves in areas such as ambient, drone, ethereal dub experiments and quiet noise.
This label is still alive and kicking and you can check its webpage here while a Soundcloud page is here.
A very big thanx to Jason for sending me this little jewel more than 10 years ago, for the extra tracks on my copy and all the useful info about it. 
Enjoy it.

HOSTILITER-Age Of Decay-(Suoni Oscuri-Italy-2012)

Hostility was a crust punk band born in 2010 in the Italian city of Viterbo,(Lazio Region). The line up was: Frederico guitar and vocals, Agostino on bass and Coli on drums.
In March 2011, five tracks for Intoxication were recorded.
The lyrics deal with such topics as a criticism of the system, war and religion.

This tape comes with a folded cover sleeve reporting lyrics in Italian and English, the recording is very good.
Unfortunately, they are no longer active yet you can check their bandcamp page here, where you find other great productions
while on their FB page you`ll see old flyers and videos.
Their music has a gloomy crust punk edge filled with heavy metallic sounds, think Amebix meets Neurosis deep in the ocean.
A big  Thanx to Ghiko for giving the ok to share this great cassette here.
Enjoy it.

ARTE POSTAL Hacia El Nuevo Milenio-(Museo De Filatelia De Oaxaca-Mail Art Documentation-Mexico+Global Networking-1999)

Amazing documentation printed in off-set on glossy paper about this mail art project called Arte Postal Hacia El Nuevo Milenio, It was organized by The Philatelic Museum of Oaxaca that made an exhibition which lasted 3 months with a 3 days opening(16-18 December 1999) when there was also a performance by Clemente Padin Vs Gerardo Yepiz on the first day, a debate with various mail artists on the second day and an electroacoustic concert on the third day. 
The documentation has a good introduction about this project, an article about the mail art and one about the electroacoustic gig + a selection of art-works by international mail artists.
Very well done and with interesting articles and critics, this mail art document will make happy all the art postal aficionados.
All the texts are in the Spanish language, only.

v.a.-Endorse It In Dorset Festival 2011-Vol 8-(Double Cd-Hogbitch-UK-2011)

Amazing double cd + small booklet with cool pics presenting the acts/bands playing at this cheerful festival in 2011.
I have posted the Vol 4 documenting the 2007 edition of the same festival.
This time the cd is double yet the recipe is almost the same, a lot of great musicians playing cow-punk, acid dub, crazy ska, punk rock, weird electronics, country&folk and more funny music to dance your body and soul.
Hogbitch seems to be the personal label by Pronghorn: an UK band that promote themselves as The Kings of Cow-punk since 1992. 
To complete this post I am attaching a video of Pronghorn live at this festival edition.
Enjoy it.

Lieselotte-Live/Pakita-M.S.1.-(Split Tape-Self Released-Switzerland-1998)

Split tape with two very different acts, on one side Lieselotte from Switzerland and on the other side Pakita from Spain.
There is not much info on the cover sleeve although from the few info I can guess a few things.

Lieselotte plays a fast and angry HC punk with political lyrics sung in French language, just 2 lyrics reported on the cover sleeve, it is a live recording of their gig held on 24/02/1998 in an antifascist festival in Neuchatel(Switzerland).
 Although recorded live the overall quality is pretty good, I imagine their live shows must be really powerful.

Pakita seems to be a one-woman project from Spain. She plays a rather violent form of noise industrial made with machines, echos, effects, feedbacks and filtered vocals,
this session was recorded in her "cave" in August 1998 and the recording is awesome.

Other than this info I am not sure if this tape was self-released and where it was released, I guess in Switzerland.

This is definitely a tape both for people into HC punk and Industrial Noise.
Enjoy it.
