BIG CITY ORCHESTRA-Massacre Again-(Tonspur Tapes-Germany-c60-1986)+BIGGE CITY ORCHESTRA Meets EEL O-Pandora Snicker Eros-(Ecto Tapes-Usa-c60)

Other 2 tapes by the famous and incredible Big City Orchestra,I already spoke about them when I posted Baobab and Anguilliform.
Their website is very well done  and offer us lots of info,videos,music + archives,people and more,go here to check it.
I guess they are quite famous in the underground scene having had a very long history and discography yet I am going to re-copy what it is written on the discogs page dedicated to them as I find it very good.
"One of the most idiosyncratic and original groups of the past two decades, BCO is not your standard Orchestra. Situated in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, the band has released an enormous catalog of recorded material over the past two decades. Formed in the late 1970's the ensemble continues to maintain a free-flowing roster of artists from around the world that collaborate on specific projects. Categorizing the Orchestra into any given genre can be a task, as releases continue to surprise even the most devout listener. There is never any way to precisely classify the next BCO release. An album of authentic sea-shanties? A wall of noise? A shimmering downpour of lullabies whispered to the wind? A humorous or thought-provoking album of Sound Collages? Vocal excursions set to make Rod McKuen blush? We press play, leaning forward with slight apprehension. We await the first wave of blissful deception. We are perpetually rewarded."
and to complete this post---this is their discogs page  where you`ll find lots of (if not all) their productions.
Enjoy those nice tapes.
