IDOLISE N1-(Magazine-UK-1984)

Great magazine created by Rober Nixon in Surrey (UK) around the mid-80s. I have already posted the Number 2 released in 1985.

In this issue some thoughts by Nocturnal Emissions, articles about Attrition, Nekrophile Recs, Departure, some poetries and quite a few amazing collages/graphic works.

Definitely, a magazine strictly connected with the first wave of industrial music and its wide network.
Enjoy it.

Janusz Reichel / Guernica Y Luno ‎– Abyś Wiedział, Że Nigdy Nie Przegrasz-( Nikt Nic Nie Wie-Poland-1995)

Split tape with two Polish acts. Janusz Reiche plays a weird form of folk sung in the Polish language with a lo-fi recording, that fits very well with his melodic and dramatic acoustic music.
Guernica Y Luno plays instead, a violent form of HC punk, I guess both acts were involved in the anarchist scene! The album came out with a folded cover sleeve reporting info and lyrics(only in the Polish language)
The label is the legendary Nikt Nic Nie Wie old yet still active Polish label already covered in this blog a few times, This is their actual webpage!
Enjoy it.

v.a.-Songs About Women (In The 21st Century)-(Digital Release-UK-2014)

Musicians rose to the challenge set by the band Gertrude to submit a track about a woman in the 21st century. The result is an eclectic and vibrant compilation album, offering a variety of feisty garage punk, electronica and folk, as well as a dash of street poetry. All the tracks on the album will be reviewed by Gertrude on their blog at gertgossip.wordpress.com You are welcome to add your responses to the album here too.
This album was mastered at Bentstring Studio, November 2014. The cover art is by a revolutionary Cuban artist called José Gómez Fresquet. The image is called 'Series of dreams of the Americas' and was completed in 1969.
A big thank you to all the artists who appear on this album. The first track on the album was recorded live (on a phone), at an open mic night during a political occupation of 4 boarded-up council flats which was instigated by the Focus E15 campaign.
Let's carry on representing politics, women's lives and histories through words and music. (info from their Bandcamp page. where this compilation is available as a free download)

Humor Cáustico-Ensaio(2001)-Gravação Directa-(Self Released-Portugal-2001)

Humor Cáustico was an HC Punk band from Oporto(Portugal) active last decade, I m  not sure if the music and images here were ever released as a  proper production, in fact, Rodolfo(the guitarist) passed these files to me as mp3s on a CD-R probably 13 years ago, since then I have lost touch with him.
18 tracks in this practise recording, pretty good quality and performance. Political lyrics are sung in Portuguese, powerful guitar riff, fast drums and energetic vocals: all the right ingredients for a great HC punk production.
I have posted a live production by this great band, you`ll find it here.
I am adding a few pics that were included with these files.
A big thanks to Rodolfo for this nice digital gift. Enjoy it.:f(a*r~a_w)a*y: click me
