MUSA-Inni Funerei-(P.C.R.+B:C.N.-Italy-199?-c70)

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.

SIVULLINEN Zine n14 + N15 (Winter and Summer 1993-Finland)

 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...

BRANDELLI D`ODIO-Carne Di FangAzione (Video-PerfoConcert-Original Recording 1993/94>Final Editing 2014)[New and Unreleased]

Brandelli D`Odio was a kind of open anti-art-collective active in the 90s.
I wrote already about them when I posted the video-performaces:Alarms:Symptoms of Emotions to Come,
Non c`e` Uscita and the track No Tanax.
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  video installations,spitfire
half-nude bodies,original papier mache` masks,dark ambient,mud,slides,painting and engagement of the audience into the show.
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 August 1994.
A very big thanx to all the people whom filmed those shows and passed us those video recordings.
 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.

EUNUCH/THE SCROUNGERS-Split Tape-(Pagan Waste Tapes-Australia-c60-1994)

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.

DIE TESTERS-Demo-(Self Released-Germany-c10-199?)

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.

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.

LIZGIZZAD-Lizgizzad-(UK-Self Released-199?)

5 tracks on this one side only cassette by this English band from Leeds.
Lizgizzad plays a weird yet powerful noise/industrial punk.
I am not sure when this tape came out, I guess the mid-90s.
I know that Pig Havok(guitarist and singer) was also involved in Pleasant Valley Children, Bugeyed and Cosmonauts Hail Satan.
 LG revolved around the trio of Ron Tree (bass, vocals), Paul Clarke aka Pig Havok (guitar, vocals) and Mick Flower (drums) and a few additional collaborators.
This is a great tape for people into chaotic noise/punk played with instruments. Enjoy it.

ONE WITH THE UNIVERSE-One with Universe-(c60-Greece-Self Released-199?)

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.

v.a.- SUBWAY TO DEATH -(Sick Records-UK-c60-198?)

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.
