Gertrude is an all-female post-punk band from London. This is their first mini-cd with the very first line up. They are still active nowadays. I think this cd is no longer available... Enjoy it! *f*a*r*a*w*a*y* click me
Very interesting project this italian trio called Musa.It seems to be all girls(although nicknames might be misleading) playing clarinet,flute,drums,computer,synth and mixing renaissance music with electro goth.
I do not know much about them and the labels that co-released this tape-there is little info on the cover-sleve and no addresses.The recording is pretty good and the graphic layout is nice too.
Another great compilation released on Biotope Art Organization back in the 1990,when this label was located in Italy.I passed this tape to Vita Ignes Corpus Lignum blog 4 years ago that link is dead now but if you go here you can read the good review written at the time by Crepusculum. Enjoy it :) ~f~a~r~a~w~a~y~ click me
Himera was a punk band from Russia,this tape was released on the polish label Czerwony Diabelek in 1994. All the lyrics are listed in polish in the cover-sleeve and the song titles are in cyrillic letters. I know that they made a split 7inch with Steine Fur Der Friden in the same year. Enjoy it!
I wrote about Sivullinen International Newsletter. Those ones instead are 2 issues of the fanzine with the same name,published by Jouni Waarakangas in Helsinki(Finland)!!! Jouni was collecting
artworks from different artists around the world and printing this
beautiful zines in a print-run of 1000 copies. Those 2 numbers are
packed with black and white art-works,graphix,drawings,strange
poems,weird comics,poetries and more random thoughts. This is a classic from the underground press of the 90s and if you are into zines then you should not miss those ones. Very good and funny, those zines are really priceless. Here the link for two more already posted Sivullinen17 and 19. Great zines all the pages around... f^a^r^a^w^a^y^ sivullinen 14 sivullinen 15
First demo tape by this Italian duo playing a nice form of digital hardcore...here more info about their other releases. I passed this one to Radiomolotov blog few years ago,that link is not on anymore so I re-post it here. It is a very good tape of cyber attack half industrial and digital weirdness. Enjoy it.
This is the very
first experimental theatre-performance by this band,It was an idea
already performed by the ghost collective E.A.,I
posted the very first document of this performance:Carne
di FangAzione by Estro Assente.
Brandelli D`Odio extended this basic idea to a full long piece of 30 minutes,6
"actors" experimenting live punk music mixing it with
half-nude bodies,original papier mache` masks,dark
ambient,mud,slides,painting and engagement of the audience into the
I left the original
music of the videos and I made a very little editing of those recordings trying to retain the pure vibes of those shows.
Those videos were
recorded at the live show in Pishina Okkupata of Foggia in November
1993,the social Squatted center Labirinto in Benevento in January
1994 and the social squatted center in Avellino in February 1994+
pieces of the show at the 10 days anarchist meeting in Montemarenzo in
A very big thanx to
all the people whom filmed those shows and passed us those video
Although recorded in the beginning of the 90s those videos are completely unreleased and never been edited before, the quality is pretty good if you think about the basic settings of dark lights used during those performances and the video-cameras of that time.
Ispirational thriving force-points are fantasy,rebellion and repression.
I added more info in the video and it has english subtitles.
A very big thanx to Full Slap ,a band of friends who gave us full support while touring together sharing instruments,stages,basic needs and lots of fun,more thanx must be added to all the squatters in Foggia and in the places that we visited,too many to write down here. A double cd with almost all the discography of this band is still available on radiomolotov blog here the link. Terra Umana helped me in the final editing. Enjoy it. ~f~a~r~a~w~a~y~
Split cassette by those 2 Australian bands-Eunuch seems to be a duo or a solo project playing just with a distorted guitar and screaming thoughts against the system-society,fashion ,hate,racism and more related issues.Recording is not the best but it works quite well in its unity.
The Scroungers is an harsh and angry one man playing furious HC punk with similar political ideas.His recording is pretty good. A nice tape for some kind of HC Punk lovers.
Another tape by the multi-talented artist from Paris (France): musician, composer, painter, puppeteer M. Nomized, artist already covered in this blog different times.The label is the famous Red Neon Tapes active in Belgium during the 90s. I spoke about this label already in many occasions by now. So for whom missed the other posts you might want to use the search box on this blog. Enjoy it. *f~a*r~a*w~a*y~ click me
Sex Zine was a small zine made in London.This issue has very interesting articles all taken from other sources(books, magazines...)!!!
You`ll find here articles about women's ejaculation, tantra and sexual magick, porno-politics, body liberation, adult entertainments, energy orgasms, reviews of other fanzines and books and an open letter by Annie Sprinkle.
Very nice and well done, printed with Xerox machines, you`ll get tons of stuff to read in its 40 pages.
Sovredocis and Sopa de Garron are two punk bands from Buenos Aires (Argentina) very active in the DIY and anarchist movement.One of them: Max Vadala is a comic artist, involved in the zine world, here a page in Spanish and English on Archive.org about his activities and history.Here a blog where I think he`s involved and full of info and artworks and more related issues about the bands in which he played and the Buenos Aires punk scene.
This tape came out with a nice booklet with lyrics(only in Spanish) and nice graphics and drawings made by Max.
I am not sure if he moved to Mexico a few years back, I know he had lots of Mexican friends, in fact, this split tape was released by JAR Kore Recs, J.A.R. is a collective of Mexican punk anarchists from Mexico D.F. active since a long time.
For the lovers of south American anarcho-punk music.
Number 12 of the famous serie New Hippies compilations,I did post already quite few volumes of those compilations.Red neon Tapes was an experimental tape label created by Patrick Parent. It produced about 50 cassettes, some of which include "New Hippies" compilation series as well as material by the likes of Mlehst, Telepherique and M. Nomized. Enjoy it. ~f~a~r~a~w~a~y~ click me
4 tracks on this demo by the German Die Testers, they were hailing from Berlin and they were a proper full ska orchestra with 8 or 9 people.
They made a fantastic gig at the Squatted Swimming Pool in Foggia, all dressed in swimsuits including fins and all the snorkeling gears, very funny gig if you think there was no water in the pool anyway.
They were good musicians and very nice people.Here a page with some info about their line up.
Although recorded live this tape is great and it has all the vibrant energy of their live shows, if you are into ska then you`ll love this one.
Piume e sangue is Gi Gasparin and Paolo Dal Balcon-quite an interesting tape here released by the incredible American audiofile Tapes label back in 1994.I spoke already about this great label linking an interesting interview with its mastermind Carl Howard. 3 years ago I passed another tape called "I corpi 68.28.38." by Piume E Sangue to Vita Ignes Corpus Lignum blog,that link is still Ok,get it here. Enjoy it!!! ~f~a~r~a~w~a~y~ click me
Voices Green and Purple was a mail art project managed by the mail artist Mario Aquilino.This is the documentation to this project.13 mail artists took part sending A5 size artworks to Mario who assembled them into a fanzine. Beside the mail art Mario was also involved in 2 seminal bands,he was in fact a very good guitar player with a great love for the garage punk, the psychedelic movement of the 60s and the b-movies. He played in The Neolithics:a very good band of garage punk 60s style. I passed to Radiomolotov blog their discography tape "Eclipse" back in 2009,that link is still ok,please go here to get that fabulous tape. When The Neolithics splitted up Mario formed with few friends The Petrifieds,a band into surf raw rock`n`roll and b-movies culture.Gianamria of Italian Do It Yourself blog posted both tape and 7inch by this band-please get it here Sadly Mario passed away in december 1997 and I still miss him very much. This post is dedicated to him. ~f~a~r~a~w~a~y~
Ritual Industrial Noise by those 3 projects :Chapter 23,Death Squad and Radiosonde.Here a note about this cd:
"Self annihilation expressed through aesthetic limbs"
Released in conjunction with the 1998 Self Annihilation tour.
Packaged in a plain cardboard sleeve with artwork & information
sticker across the front and back. (Sticker needs to be cut to open.)
Limited to 500 hand-numbered copies"
I do not know much about this duo,I think they were from Athens(Greece) and I probably received it from Iason of 1000+1 TiLt Recs.
Their music is a kind of hyperdelic psych weird rock mixed with some teckno made with machines and instruments and voices...they must have been involved in the squatting movement since in the special thanx there is Villa Amalias,a famous historic anarchist squat in Athens.
I really like this one,the recording is very good but the cover-sleeve is missing the art-work and basic info and for me these are the only low points for this production. Enjoy it.
About this tape I am going to c+p some info taken from discogs webpage : "Sick Records was founded by members of the Decay,basically to release the band's own stuff.
The label then released tapes/records by other bands until one of them became to lazy
and was kicked out(me!)-definitely justified.The 2 other guys then decided to start
Far Out Records (2) while I started Resistance Productions..." The link for this page is here. However this compilation is not on that page and it seems to have been released on the end of the 80s and then distributed from Resistance Productions in fact I am sure I received it from Pablo of R.P. For the tracklist and some info I am attaching the scans of the cover-sleeve pages. Everything is a bit messy on the cover-sleeve and some of the recordings are not the best, as for the music expect raw punk and anarchist lyrics. I guess this is very hard to find now.
This is a very interesting project,a 3 way split fanzine:Simbiosis En La Abstraccion,Homo Homini Lupus and Aless Vill. 500 copies(or maybe 1000)Professional printed in b/w back in 1996.
It has amazing graphic works,interviews,poetries,comics,very good articles ranging from drugs related issues to social controls critics,anti-fascism,anti-sexism and more random thoughts about freedom and slavery. I love the nice graphic layouts making clear the different people working on it. Very good fantasy and ideas. For the zine lovers around the world speaking spanish-yes this zine is in spanish language only.And this is the only low point,maybe... ~f~a*r*a~w~a*y* click me
