Wanted Christopher Columbus-(Poster-Mail Art-Italy+Global Networking-1992)

Mail Art project and Documentation realized by Alessandro Ceccotto,it was 1992 and all the world was celebrating 400 years of the discovery of the "new continet".Quite few mail artists took part to this project which theme was the anti-celebration,I spoke about this project when I posted a very nice postcard printed by the same mail artist on the same subject.
The Brain of the monster was a fanzine managed by Alessandro Ceccotto and Boccato Gerardo active in the end of the 80s,I spoke about it when I posted some of the tapes released by the same zine.
Enjoy it.

LUSTER-Ne Quid Nimis-(audiofile Tapes-c60-1996-Usa)+Abandon-(Vuzh Music-Usa-c80-1998)

Quite an interesting project here called LUSTER. The mind behind it is C.REIDER who is also the head of VUZH Music; a label active since the early 90s. C. Reider has collaborated with many artists and different projects [De Fabriek, Tarkatak, ] and also played in the bands: Drone Forest and Grook`d Finger. C. Reider was active in the underground cassette tape labels network back in the 90s and he has also been involved in music journalism; writing mainly for the magazines: Autoreverse and Mouthy. Luster is his solo project. the 1st tape “not named” was released in 1991(diy pre-Vuhz music), the 2nd tape “ne quid nimis” was released on Audiofile tapes in 1996, and the third (and final) tape “Abandon” was eventually released on Vuhz Music in 1998, and then re-released on cd-r in 2002. You can find more info about this project and all the other bands by C.Reider on his webpage here. Also I scanned the cover sleeve of both tapes where you`ll find more info about the music and the people who collaborated with him at the time. ”Abandon” came out with a nice small booklet (included here)where you`ll find plenty of info about those songs. About the music: soundscapes of grey and gritty quietnoise???? A touch of organic dream ambient??? maybe… call it as you like; this is inspiring stuff from my collection.(from Vita Ignes Corpus Lignum blog).
All the old releases on tapes are available as free download from his nice webapge.You will also read more about all those great tapes,lots of info provided there.
For all the lovers of meditative ambient and abstract relaxing noises.
Enjoy it.

Εκτός Ελέγχου-Εκτός Ελέγχου-(Self Released-Greece-1985)

Εκτός Ελέγχου Romanized to: Ektos Elenghou Translated to: Out Of Control. Punk/Rock'N'Roll band from Thessaloniki, Greece. Started playing in 1982 as "Συν Και Πλην", but in 1984 they changed their name to "Εκτός Ελέγχου". They released a Demo cassette in 1985.(info taken from a discogs page deditcated to them). A wikipedia page about them is here only in greek language.  I have no idea how this tape ended up in my collection,some greek distro must have sent me long time ago,I didn`t know anything about this band as I could not even read their name,everything changed when my friend Zina(big thanx) translated  their name and so I could search info about them on the net.On the cover sleeve there are only the songtitles(in english),no info of any sort.Maybe this is the demo that came out in 1985 but I am not sure 100%.It has a good recording.Anyone out there with more info about this tape???Enjoy the punk rock sung in greek.
