Full lenght album by this Yugoslavian band hailing from Belgrade and playing a very good thrash metal.
The band was formed in 1990 by bassist and vocalist Darko Marković, however, after their first live appearance, the band disbanded. The following year, on January,They reformed with the female vocalist Jelena Komnenić and guitarist Nemanja Kojić, and disbanted in 1995."Where to?" is their 3rd production,with a full colour cover sleeve reporting info + lyrics and a good studio recording this is a very fine album.
They are considered as one of the best Yugoslavian band of this genre and this tape is here to prove it.
For the metalheads worldwide this is a great album.

MR MOTO & DE FABRIEK-Rovelatous-(EE Tapes-Belgium-c60-1996)

Quite an interesting and lively collaboration on this tape released by the Belgian Tape label EE Tapes back in 1996. Here Mr Moto [Matthias Lang] from Germany and De Fabriek from Holland meet on a neutral ground to work on a unified project of experimental electronic sounds. They are delivering to us weird yet beatiful electro-experimentations!!! 8 tracks (4 each side) crafted with minimal sequencing and yet sometimes rhythmic and slow moving forward implosions of melodies/noises.
This tape came out in a limited edition of 100 copies, 50 with a red cover and the other 50 with a blue cover, the sleeve design was created by De Fabriek. 
I quite like this tape …somehow has all the energy and the freshness of the electronic sound researches of those artists involved in this scene back in the 90s.

Cuba No Al Bloqueo-(Mail Art Project and Exhibition-Global Networking-1992)

International mail art project launched by the mail artist Clemente Padin,I spoke about him when I posted his other mail art project No Mas Excusas.
A small biography taken by Wordpress.
"Clemente Padín was born in Lascano, Uruguay in 1939. He is a poet, performer, designer, video- and multimedia-artist, and art critic. He studied Spanish Literature at the University of the Republic of Uruguay. In 1967 he made first experiences in the field of Mail Art, exchanging publications with Edgardo Antonio Vigo, Guillermo Deisler and Dámaso Ogaz. In 1969 he published the magazine “OVUM” as well as postcards and visual poems. During the Military Dictatorship in Uruguay he organised the first Latin-American Mail Art exhibition in 1974 at Gallery U in Montevideo. With his fake postal stamps he doomed the dictatorial regime for its brutal suppression of human rights. This might have lead to his imprisonment from August 1977 to Novembre 1979. Mail Artists from all around the world protested against it.
In October 1983 he showed the public his artistic activities in the exhibitions “1. Mai” in Uruguay. After that he organised the Latin-American and Caribian union of Mail Artists, founded August 31, 1984 in Rosario, Argentina. Since then Padín has been participating in hundreds of Mail Art exhibitions worldwide.

“Mail Art is not made for the art marked, it is there to be consumed and communicated. It is impossible to reduce the artistic to political or social interests. The political content of art is inseperably bound to the artistic content. Mail Art shows itself as a form of social consciousness.” Clemente Padín (translation by MAI)"
You can read a very interesting interview to this artist on Iuoma.org
In this documentation you`ll find an article(english and spanish)about the blockage in Cuba and some artworks about the subject.
Enjoy it.

MARGARET FREEMAN-Academy Serial-(3Rio Art-Belgium-c46-1990)

On december 2011 I passed this amazing tape to Vita Ignes Corpus Lignum blog and in my small review I asked everybody to pass me more info  as I didn`t know much about this french project.Quite few people commented that post and eventually the artist behind it Pascal Jeannet wrote us  passing us few useful links  with info and pics.Eventually He did open his own webpage about all his past and present projects:all free downloads,as for this one he linked the page of Vita Ignus Corpus Lignum blog unfortunately that link  is expired so I re-post it here.
For you all curious to know more visit his well done webpage.
3Rioart was a small belgian label active since the late 80s and  managed by Hybryds their actual webpage is here.
For all the lovers of old school industrial mixing dark wave,synth jingles crushing percussive drums and crazy vocals,this is a great tape.

I spoke already about this Welsh project when I posted the fanzine with the same name.
Alphane Moon was a duo:Dafydd Roberts and Ruth McDonald.They were into psychedelic culture,paganism and space rock.
In this great album they offer us 8 tracks of amazing avantgarde music mixing space rock,weird folk,dronish experiments,poetic sounds and more fantasy `s jingles.
"The Echoing Grove" was recorded during 1994 at Ciliau Aeron, Erwlon and Dolaugwyddion-uchaf in Wales, and was originally released in 1996 on various tape labels in a total quantity not amounting to more than 100.I must have the tape as well somewhere,I will therefore post the cover sleeve of that tape in future.
