v.a.-The CRAZY SIDE OF IRRE TAPES-(c60-Irre Tapes/Ebu`s Music-Germany-1990)

 Irre Tapes was a 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).(from discogs)

It seems that this compilation was compiled and released by Carsten Olbrich on his own label Ebu`s music,still active now-days,here his webpage.
Great compilation of crazy electronics...

DIE FABRIEK-DIE SCHUTZBEFOHLENEN-Criminal Collaboration-(Cat Killer-Germany-C60-1993)

Split tape on the German label Cat Killer managed by Carsten Vollmer,released in 1993 in a limited edition of 93 hand numbered copies.
De Fabriek (The Factory) hails from the Dutch City of Zwolle and original founded by Richard van Dellen and Andries D. Eker at the end of the seventies. Now the spil are Richard van Dellen, Louise Manuru van Dellen (his wife) and Simone van Dellen (his daughter). Not considering themselves a regular band (for one thing, they are a label too) they present The Factory as some sort of workmen-union, and the musicians they work with as labourers. Music is created through workman tools and machinery. Throughout years they were recording with the likes of Solenoid (2), O.R.D.U.C., Technological Aquiver, Brume, Vivenza, Klinik, and Gen Ken Montgomery.(from discogs)
Not much info about DIE SCHUTZBEFOHLENEN,sorry.

ENTRATA APERTA-The Mirror Sheds Tears-(Anapeste label-Italy-C60-1995)

I passed this tape to Vita Ignes Corpus Lignum blog back in 2010, it is not there anymore, so I re-post it here.
Entrata Aperta is just another name for the ghost collective E.A., already covered in this blog.
I am attaching the same little info passed to Vita Ignes...
"This tape was recorded in the room of Raff in Ex Cim squat in Foggia. Danilo and Raff worked on it as a project exploring the dark side of the psyche. It came out as a good example of ritual-esoteric electronix. The main instruments were keyboards and samples. It was released in 1995 by Anapeste tape label. I don`t know how many copies Anapeste printed. By the way, E.A. printed some other copies just to trade them with some tape labels. It came with an info sheet about E.A. The cover sleeve is an art- work by Raff-printed on some zines as well. For this project, E.A. means Open Entry."
I am also including a good slide-show from my YouTube channel, a song taken from this tape.
This cassette had very good reviews and I am very happy to share it again here. Enjoy it.

Cellula Prima(First Cell) was a compilation tape released by  Mikrocellulazione, a collective of punk anarchists active in Naples(Southern Italy) at the end of the 80s.
They were aiming to squat a social centre to run d.i.y. activities such as gigs, theatre, demos. After a few years of different activities(gigs, demos, leaflets...) they squatted a big place in Soccavo(Naples) in June 1989 and they called it Tien`A` Ment, recalling the mass murder just happened in the famous Chinese square.
This compilation came out with a 20 pages booklet, it is not included here. Sorry I could not find it in my messy archive of fanzines, flyers, letters ...

NIGREDO-Cantione Profanae(Putrefactio-Portugal-c46-199?)+NIGREDO-Carmina Defunctorum-(Slaughter Productions-Italy-1994)

Nigredo was the project of Paulo Maldoror and Lucrecia Borsh,I spoke already about them when I posted the tape Pro Defunctis by Sol Niger.
"Processed sounds of ritual esoteric feedback distortions mixed with reverberated horns,distant chants and restrained clangs of metal bring us into a dark world of distant voices calling for the awakening of the soul for a new birth."

Those 2 tapes are a great example of esoteric electronickx!!!A must for all the lovers of ritual dark ambient and magick messages.
Cantiones Profanae was released on Putrefactio in Portugal,this was the personal label of Paulo Maldoror,I kind of re-call, it was 1992 while Carmina Defunctorum came out on the Italian legendary cassette label Slaughter Productions managed by Marco Corbelli aka Atrax Morgue in 1994.
I am including here the flyer of Cantione Profanae tape and a slide show from my youtube channel .
Enjoy it.

DE PROFUNDIS-Mutation n6-(Cat Killer-Germany-c30-1992)

Mutation was a series of  tape-works dedicated to selected artists and released by the German label 
This is the number 6 of this series and the music is by De Profundis: a project developed by the artists Frank Kaiser and Ralph Doege, both programming machines and offering us a soundscape of noise and ambient sometimes recalling dronish and dark atmospheres with more experiments of loops and voices.
Very nice if you are used to those sounds.

TENIA CORPORATION-Don`t eat me cause I `m crazy(Italy-c60-diy-1998)+Gegen Shame-(c46-Italy-diy-1997)+0043057501(diy-Italy-c46-1998)+Think Revolt-(diy,Italy,1997,c90)[New&Unreleased]

More  Tenia Corporation tapes, I wrote already about this ghost project when I posted the tapes Ninna Nanna and Tenia Corporation

Amazing pure experimental music crossing the borders of different genres to deliver us a combination of fantasy and personal messages.
This was the project by  Andrea Ceschin(with various collaborations), producing music just for his own pleasure in the late 90s-no distribution involved.
Those tapes were never released and those in my hands are the only copies done.
In fact, those tapes were never distributed and I only managed to get them as I met Marzia not long ago.
For the lovers of certain music without borders and limits towards a creative fantasy flow that stands on his own power and
Dedicated to the memory of Andrea Ceschin.
Enjoy It.
