v.a.-CLOPORTES-(Not On Label--Belgium-c60-1992)

Cloportes is a compilation of tracks featuring mainly Cedrik Fermont.
Črno klank was born in the middle of 1989. The project started as a duo playing noise, industrial and experimental ; the two members were Vinofv -052 and C-drík [Kirdec, Axiome, Ambre, etc.]. In 1992 the band splitted [because of musical and above all political point of views] and C-drík decided to go on alone. But the project soon stayed more or less in standby until he decided to restart it as a collective in which several people from Belgium and France could play [XD, a throat singer, Greg Durez and Benjamin, who are musicians - above all drummers - in several traditional bands such as Les esprits frappeurs and JeannElisabeth Shrapnel and Aliena Vena as a singer. But once again the project didn't last. C-drík is now mostly working alone for this project composing tracks including influences from traditional music, electro-acoustic, ambient, industrial, noise or power electronics.
But the project is still open to any kind of collaboration and C-drík worked together with Gisèle Pape on a short movie presented at the experimental short film festival Fenêtre sur court in Paris and won a prize for the best soundtrack.
M.E. 3 Started in 1990, M.E.3 was the first solo project by C-drík Fermont.
Globulex is a Casio-synthesizer based project that existed from 1992 to 1993, featuring Agnès Gilson & C-drík Fermont. 
All those info taken from Discogs.
Cedrik is still very active with lots of projects and his own label Syrphe,you can check  all his activites on his well done webpage.

THIRD WORLD PLANET-World Waste-(Pulp Mill+Break Even-Canada-c30-1995)

Great and short yet very intense  cassette by this Canadian outfit playing very extreme Hc punk mixed with powerviolence,screams and fast drums.Third World Planet was a powerviolence duet from British Columbia, Canada. TWP was the music vehicle of Eric Boros (guit noise) and Jason Flower (percussion) plus some guests,they started in 1995 and ended up around 1999, they released several ep's,splits,flexi's, tapes and their final release was the "Old white men-discography" lp. This is another band in which Eric Boros, the genius guitarist of  Vialka. played during the 90s. 
I already posted a couple of tapes by him as Hermit: here and  here.
Eric Boros has been immersed in the global underground for the better part of the last twenty years. He is a self-taught guitarist, experimental multi-instrumentalist, improviser and composer, cassette archivist and performance artist, curator and networker, photographer, and translator. With a focus on trans-cultural and interdisciplinary collaboration, he has established connections with artists from around the world and off the beaten path, crossing the borders between art, music and noise. 
You`ll find his extensive discography here.

This is the very first production by this amazing band featuring members of  Contrazione, Kollettivo, Franti, Impeto & Assalto

Their music is an excellent and very personal form of art-rock mixed with punk,HC punk and new wave!The lyrics are great too and the booklet(here included)offers us very nice graphix works mainly as  an esquisite form of xerox art.
Beside this  cassette they released 2 lps,1 cd ,1 10inch and a split cd with Gli Aereoplani Cadono,another great band from Turin.You can get all those productions as free download from their excellent webpage where you`ll find also biography,info and pictures.

N-HEXANA-Nocivo-(Katatonik Tapes-Portugal(?)-c46-199?)

This is another mystery tape.I have received it from Paulo Maldoror of  Nigredo in the beginning of the 90s.As far As I remember He didn`t give me any info about it.
I cannot find informations about this label Katanotik Tapes and there is no address listed,I can only guess it was a Portuguese label or maybe just another project by Paulo using another name.
I passed this rip to Vita Ignes Corpus Lignum blog few years ago,I am going to add here the review written at the time by Crepusculum-thanx mate.:)
Enjoy it.
click me 
"had zero info about this incredibly rare projekt other than that {{F@R@W@Y}} received it from Paulo Maldoror quite some time ago.. another one ov those instances here when thee need came to turn to thee friend one can always rely upon for "spreading the sickness" : Mauricio.. turns out it was a projekt ov thee other member ov Portuguese ritual elektronikx projekt Nigredo: Lucrecia Bosch!! when asked how he knew this Mauricio replied: "i am a fucking bible how may times do i have to tell you that??" jeje

thee projekt name N - Hexana likely refers to N - Hexane: a chemical made from crude oil and believed to have potential carcinogenic properties..

thee cassette comes packaged with a transparency overlayed upon silver foil which makes for quite a nice visual effect!! thee texts collaged onto thee cover all refer to warnings about thee known black-lung agent: asbestos..

sonicly thee cassette consists ov two 23 minute sektions ov caustic atmospheric power-elektronikx!! what else would you expect from a projekt so obviously focussed upon these agents ov thee deterioration and maligning ov lived experience?? ov course: an effort at making us aware ov thee detriment inherent in thee toxified industrial waste ridden excesses ov this modern world..

No track listing..

UNCLE VINNIE-The Fucking Complete Uncle Vinnie-(Non Music Productions-South Africa-199?)

Another mistery tape.Uncle Vinnie comes from Oostersee in South Africa and that`s all I know about them.There is very little info on the cover sleeve.

The recording is pretty good and the cover sleeve is pretty nice too.
Anybody out there who knows more about them?

MONOKROM-Der Stahlerne Traum-(Fich Art-Germany-c90-1991)

Amazing cassette by the German industrial project Monokrom,this tape offer us an excellent form of dark rhythmic noise mixed with esoteric industrial sounds. 
Fich art was founded in late 1989 by the members of ars moriendi: moata-omen, asche and t.r.g. to promote their music.This leaded to some response in the so called tape- scene but not to commercial success. In 1994 Asche ruled Fich Art on his own and so the focus changed. He released much more material of different people all more or less making dark ambient music.
