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."
