ILLUSION OF SAFETY-In 70 Countries-(Complacency-Usa-c40-1989)

I imagine that most of the people following this blog knows already this amazing american project by the artist:Daniel Burke ,for the ones who don`t here an intruduction from discogs:
Since 1983 Illusion Of Safety has been the ongoing project of Daniel Burke, working alone and with various collaborators. They have released over 20 CDs on labels such as Complacency, Die Stadt, Experimedia, Odd Size, Silent, Soleilmoon, Staalplaat, Tesco, and Waystyx, and played over three hundred concerts in Europe and North America. IOS' work has been called ambient, post-industrial, electro-acoustic, noise, sound collage, improvisation, and power electronics, but they are unwilling to limit their work to any given style or method. The sonic character and affective substance of the music will often shift abruptly within each recording and live performance.
Current position
Daniel Burke is currently working with conventional instruments, electronic synthesis, computer composition, samples, and highly amplified handled objects. He uses improvised and composed structures containing material that confounds memory and stimulates perception. The resulting music encompasses broken sound, disturbed ambience and unfiltered beauty that collectively evokes an awareness of the ineffable.
The work activates modes of perception to facilitate direct access to the psyche, emotions, and the infinite in order to address the necessity of balance and the nature of dichotomy. 

Illusion Of Safety is still very active and you can check  his  cool webpage here where you can read about the latest productions and collaborations,history,reviews etc etc...
Complacency  is the home label for the collective of artists named Illusion of Safety and for other side-projects,a discogs page about it is here.
Enjoy it.

WORKING KLASS NOIZE-Collective/Label-(UK-2015)

I first got to know this collective/label when I went to a gig/event organized by them a few years back. At the time I thought it was just a name for a noise event held in few squats every now and then in London(UK).
After getting to know Mapo and Sabba I  did discover that this is actually a collective and a label too.
The tape pictured here It is only one of their many productions, as for an introduction I gonna just use their own as It  defines very well what they are aiming at :
 "WKN- workin'klass noize is a group based in London and focused on the production of DIY counter-cultural material, from radical electronic music/noise to xylographic. Its main goal is unconditional resistance to capitalist mass culture; its perspective is the destruction of the barriers dividing genres/subgenres typical of the hierarchical idea of separation; it also aims at (re)constructing a network of free horizontal exchanges between submerged mutant individuals, and at inciting the rhizome-like connections between realities that operate in audio-visuals in a critical manner." 
I can only suggest you all to visit their blog here where you can check amazing graphix works and go to their bandcamp page to  know all the artists involved in this cool label and their nice tape productions.
Enjoy it.

v.a.-All That Your Life Needs!!!-(Glittoride+Contaminated Productions-Italy-c90-1996)

"This compilation was a co-production between H.S.S.G Glittoride and Contaminated Productions. 
In 1995 Giulo from Glittoride invited Raff of Contaminated Productions to work on a special compilation tape of industrial music. His idea was to fuse poetry and music. He wanted to combine one poem with one song from each industrial act. After attempting this: he did not manage to reach this result, but Giulo and Salvatore managed to assemble a nice booklet with poetry in Italian, and translated in English mixed up with graphix of the bands involved. The cover sleeve was a colour copy with art-work by Giulio. All the booklet was in b/w photocopies(everything is included here as pdf copies).
About the music: this tape is filled with unknown acts from the 90s exploring industrial/esoteric eletronix and experimental music. Very good tracks included here. The whole project was compiled and assembled by Giulio with the help of Salvatore. Contaminated Prods eventually took part in the distribution of this tape, printing no more than 50 copies. I have no idea how many copies were printed by Glittoride label. This is for the lovers of unknown bands of the 90s-Enjoy it.-"

NAGASAKI FONDUE-untitled-(Self Released-Usa-199?)

Nagasaki Fondue uses random doses of found sounds, radio transmissions, media samples, harsh noises + sub\ambient static resonances and the like to explore the effect of electromagnetic biomechanical manipulations on human subjects, time and space.This tape came out in the beginning of the 90s, and I have no idea how it was distributed, nor how many copies were printed. The cover sleeve is infoless- just the name of the artist and a picture of a child with perhaps some sort of radioactive sickenss. As for the music this is great industrial noise with lots of good samples and found sounds. I have little info about this project, but the tape is GREAT, and yes it is a long one.
I guess longer than a C90 and it has been out of print for quite a while now. Anybody out there with some info about Nagasaki Fondue please use the comment section to let me know more...

Sunday 8 November 2015


Active since the mid of the eighties, japanese musician Yutaka Tanaka released his works under the name S-CORE. Early works are all cassette albums he put out on his own cassette label Afflict Records, many of those were recorded via mail collaboration with many sound artists from international underground scene, such as Stefano Biasin (Italy), Telepherique and Trigger B (Germany), Merzbow (Japan), Al Margolis/If, Bwana (USA), Rafael Flores (Spain).
Staalplaat is a label for sound artists: an organization network with a music label, an e-zine, a radioprogram, a shop, and a mail order and distribution company, now based in Berlin, Germany. The label was founded by Geert-Jan Hobijn and is famous for its Mort Aux Vaches series, which is a collaboration between Staalplaat and the national Dutch radio VPRO, in which the station provides the recording sessions and Staalplaat releases them in a limited edition.
Staalplaat has a long history of organizing events—in the 1980s it was the co-founder of a concert space called the NL Centre in Amsterdam. Here it organized concerts, partially released on tape in the NL-Documentatieserie series, which are denoted by the ST 00X catalog numbers. The letters ST come from Staaltape, as the label was called back then.
After being based in Amsterdam for many years, Staalplaat relocated to Berlin in 2004.[from discogs] 
You`ll find more info about this amazing Japanese artist on this webpage, the official Staalplaat webpage is here. 
Enjoy it.
