DISSCIORDA/PASTAFROLLA-split tape-(Italy - diy - 200?)

Carletto of Dissciorda gave me this tape long time ago and when I deciced  to pass it to Radiomoltov blog , I realized that i couldn`t index it properly.There are lots of unlisted tracks on it so I did put it aside waiting for help,eventually only 2 months ago I met Alfredo(the drummer of Dissciorda) who helped me to index it properly.(many thanx Alfredo)
I do not  know much about Pastafrolla rather than they were  from Caserta and friends of Dissciorda .
Alfredo wrote this small introduction for this post:
"Dissciorda formed in Caserta in 1996. The name of the band is a jolly teasing of all ‘”Dis” bands , which at the time were springing up in the European HC scene (“sciorda” means diarrhoea in dialect), but it is also a way of recalling  Discharge and above all their lyrics of pacifist anarcho-punk  inspiration, depicting possible post-nuclear war scenarios and actual horrors such as famine, exploitation and the violence on which capitalism is based. The first line-up included Carletto (guitar/vocals), Giovanni (guitar), Alfredo (drums), Alessandro (vocals) and Ciro (bass). A few months later Nicola took the place of Ciro, and the band started playing their own tracks and touring between the regions of Campania and Puglia (mainly in squats and social centres). Their first self-produced 7-inch,  “Il marchio della vostra infamia”, was issued in 1999, in collaboration with Ennio (Kollapsed Reality), who in the meantime had taken the place of Nicola as bass player, whereas Andrea had taken the place of Alessandro as lead vocals. 
Between 2000 and 2001, Dissciorda toured again but in 2002 they had to face yet another change in the line-up, as Daniele (ex Pastafrolla) took the place of Andrea as lead vocals. Their live concerts were becoming rare, in spite of the fact that the band continued to create new tracks. These were included in the LP “Alienation Breeders”, issued by Agipunk in 2005. The record got a good review in Maximum Rocknroll  (although they tore the artwork to pieces!). After the record was issued, the band played in Modena and Rome, the last two concerts of the band. A few months later Dissciorda disbanded, although not in an explicitly straight way." 

Here a slide show I made with the pics that Carletto and Alfredo passed me 2 years go,as far as I know there is no footage of their gigs and they never played outside Italy so this slide show is the only chance to see them playing.
To complete this post I am also attaching a review of their cd taken from Maximum Rock`n`Roll  magazine.This cd is still available as free download here  on radiomolotov blog.
"Damn this is really good! I like this more every time I listen to it. Unfortunately it´s fair to say this record looks really bad. With a logo stolen from Discharge and some less-than-exciting picture you´d problably pass this up. But this band is not a Disclone. DISSCIORDA plays some really out-standing punk that is recorded with the perfect amount of clarity while remaining intensely driving and raw. I love the vocals - they are not the least bit crusty, but are instead youth-fully shouted in both the English and Italian languages with passion and convinction. In fact the vocals remind me of FINAL CONFLICT. The reason i review for MRR is for bands like this, I would have not heard this until it was ten years old otherwise. I suggest that you find it quickly. Another awesome release from Agipunk." (WK) Maximum Rock n Roll #263
As far as I know this split tape was not  distributed,Carletto made few copies to pass it around to a small circle of friends and musicians.Thanx to Babs for the English translation of Alfredo`s introduction.The recordings of both bands are just excellent.Enjoy it.

HOARST! - Komertz - (Cat Killer - Germany - c60 - 1992)

93 copies of this c60 released by the German label Cat killer in 1992. Hoarst ! seems to be Knoe  7,a tape music project
which existed from 1990 to 1995. Exploring the weird and senseless in electronic music.
A special private humour, loads of dilettantism and no fear for the big unpopular noise were its main attributes. Influences in random order: à;GRUMH..., Max Goldt, Delerium, Sesame Street, Skinny Puppy, Pippi Langstrumpf, Pankow, Adolf Tegtmeier, Ministry.
A lot of cheap equipment was harmed during the countless recording sessions in these years. Supported by some friends with their musical talent and equipment. You know who you are. (info taken from discogs)

ETAT DES STOCKS - Bruxellisation Vol. One - (Red Neon Tapes - Belgium - c60 - 199x)

Etat Des Stocks is the personal project of Patrick Parent, head- master of the historical tape label Red Neon Tapes.

I  wrote already about him when I posted 3 of  his compilations called New Hippies, as I said before all his productions were not for sale and he was only trading them with other tape-productions:the true spirit of the cassette label culture of the 80s and 90s.

This tape is  pure experimental electronic music.
Very good indeed.

Sexual Freedom Coalition - Annual Report -1996/1997-(UK-zine)

"The Sexual Freedom Coalition (SFC) is a pro-sex campaign organization and political pressure group based in the United Kingdom that challenges the laws which take away the sexual freedoms of consenting adults and also challenges the media and official bodies that show disrespect for sex.
The Sexual Freedom Coalition is a national UK voluntary organization whose aim is to campaign for sensible reform of Britain's antiquated and repressive laws concerning consensual sexual practice between consenting adults, and ensure no new laws creep in to prevent consenting adults enjoying sexual freedom.
The Sexual Freedom Coalition was formed in April 1996 by a group of people who decided that sex clubs such as Whiplash should not be raided and the 10th Sex Maniac's Charity Ball should not have been stopped by the police, putting its charity at financial risk.
A march was organized starting in Soho and ending at 10 Downing Street where a petition "Sex Please We're British" was presented to the Prime Minister.
Since then, there have been many triumphs and the phrase "the sexual freedom of consenting adults" has become commonly used. The SFC is consulted by the Home Office and the press, and is unique in the world. They have joined together with Outsiders and the Erotic Awards to hold conferences and events to allow campaigners to network and work together.
They are a member of Backlash, which was formed in 2005 in order to oppose a new law criminalising possession of "extreme pornography". (from wikipedia)
This is the first annual report as zine and it full of interesting articles about their very first activities back in 1996-SFC is still alive and kicking here their webpage:official webpage sexual freedom coalition.

ATTACKED BY WOLVES - Up A Bit From Down - (Destroy All Music-UK-1994-c30)

Another tape released by Destroy all Music,good enough I have found one copy of their catalogue so here I am going to copy what they wrote to introduce this tape on their catalogue.
"Attacked by Wolves-Up A Bit From Down(c30-£1.50)-some of the best stuff yet from this man,he creates crop circles of avant-garde which gradually stray temporarily into the fields of avant-rock, like a cross of Factor X ,Small Things but mostly ZGA with runaway scuzz-honk.Don`t ignore..."
About this scottish label active during the 90s here what they wrote:
"Destroy All Music is a new kind of label specialising in lo-fi noise-art-punk-jazz-no-wayexperimental and anything with alternative edge or viewpoint.Destroy All Music is also a queercore label,written big and proud and wants confrontational bands ,so if you are in a band send us a tape or what you are just interested!!!"

KRONSTADT/TOSHIYUKI HIRAOKA -Split Tape- (C60-Irre Tapes-Germany-1988)

A very good split tape here,I passed it to Misterioso Impossivel blog few years ago,that link is dead now.
I am happy to re-post it here because I like it very much.
About the label-this a legendary one from the  crypt of the 90s and  this is a good review on discogs
click me

"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.
With his 3rd Tape Compilation Ein Herz In Not he started IRRE Tapes which was mainly active in the late 80s/early 90s and released material by the likes of Brume, Maeror Tri and City Of Worms and loads of lesser known and stylistic different artists (Unpleasant Surprise, Fuckedtones, The, Magic Moments At Twilight Time, Doc Wör Mirran) covering the whole range of the Independent Underground from Experimental Electronica to Guitar Pop.
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).
All of the releases where copied on demand and continously numbered but only a few had an explicit Limited Edition."

HUMAN SHIELD-Friend Of Sinners-(tape-Oral Gestation Artefacts-USA-1997)

Limited edition of 300 professionally-duplicated chrome cassettes with handmade packaging. Recorded live with no overdubs in two sessions, the first one with Zygurat Consortium and Andy Ortmann and the second with John Wiese and Beta Carrotene as guest musicians. 

Oral Gestation Artefacts was an experimental music label that existed in Saint Louis, Missouri from 1994 to 2001. 
It was founded to encourage local musicians from different music genres to experiment with one another in a free improvisational setting and to release recordings by such artists. 
It also encouraged sonic experimentation between musicians and non-musicians, as well as musicians who were proficient on traditional instruments to experiment with non-instruments. Artists studying at local universities also participated, and O.G.A. (as it was known) was also active in the mail-art and visual art genres.(info from Discogs)

BRANDELLI D`ODIO-Non c`e` Uscita-(There Is No Way Out)[performance/video-original recording 1995/6,final editing 2014]New&Unreleased-Eng.Subs.

Here another video performance by Brandelli D`odio-I spoke already about this  squatters collective active in the 90s!
Here that post where you will find more info about this band,also their double cd+ zine "Sopravivvo?" is still available as free download on radiomolotov blog.

This performance is the 4th idea of experimental theatre conceived  as opening for their gigs during the tour in 1995 and 1996,it was a short piece of only 10mins and it did involved at the least 6 people.
The main message was the lack of freedom into the  mental hospitals and the slavery of the psychopharmacological drugs.

This performance was mainly made in the dark with very little lights created by the slide show,therefore those images are quite dark and the overall quality of those videos is compromised by the lights effects of the slides.
The music is the original soundtrack recorded on a 4track recorder and the quality is pretty good,also this is the only soundtrack that seems a real songs rather than a musical piece for a theatre,and it is the only performance for which Brandelli d`Odio never printed a flyer to introduce it during their gigs.Those footages are totally unreleased and never used before.More info in the video.Enjoy it!!

Massive Love n1 (Sept. 1991) + Massive Love n2 (June 1993) [fanzine-Resistance Productions-Switzerland]

I  wrote already about Resistance Productions when I posted the compilations "Punk is..." here if you want to check that post.
Resistance Prods  was a small diy label managed by Pablo,Lara and Fts in Switzerland in the beginning of the 90s.
They were publishing the zine called No Sancturay and few others + tapes.
When Pablo and Lara became parents they started  Massive Love zine,as they called it a zine by punk parents for punk parents.
On those 2 issues you can read articles about home-birth,disposable diapers,inoculation,kids vegan diet,home schooling,lesbians mums,vegan diet during pregnancy and lactation + letters and few reviews of other zines.Here I am going to write down the introduction that Lara wrote for the first issue. Very interesting little zines with a lot of  current issues.


"After breastfeeding,changing and washing nappies and cuddling Suzy,I finally managed to finish the 1st issue of Massive Love,a zine
dedicated to alternative ways of child raising.I have started it to answer the questions I am asking myself now that I am a mum.
To get to know other punk parents so that we can share our experiences and support each others in our struggle against society`s rules,to prove that having children doesn`t mean conformity to society.
To write down my thoughts and my feelings about my new situation,for other  people to write down their thoughts and feelings cos I love doing zines and I will keep on `till I am an old granny!!!"
