CALHOUN CONQUER-Lost In Oneself-(Aaarrg Records-Germany-1989)

Excellent album by this Swiss band playing a very personal form of tech-prog-thrash metal.They formed in Zurich in 1987 and disbanded in1993.
Professional musicians, great recording, nice graphics, and lyrics...the mix to become big was all there yet they never became famous and quickly disappeared only a few years after this pure gem, sadly.
Aaarrg was a German label founded by Alex Thubeauville in the mid-80s and now inactive.
For all the fans of Voivod and Young Gods.
Enjoy this masterpiece.

Ripping Thrash n13/Why n4-(Split Fanzine-UK-1997)

Ripping Thrash was a zine managed by Steve in Burton-On-Trent during the 90s. He was also running a distro and a tape label called simply Mut.
I have already posted the number 14 and number 12
This issue is split with WHY a fanzine created by John in Selby(North Yorkshire).
Interesting articles, reviews of zines and music releases and cool graphix too.
I am including here the editorials of both zines.
Enjoy it.

BULIMIA BANQUET-Live A Forte Prenestino il 4/5/91-(Kontagio Produzioni Tapes-Italy-1991)

This is an amazing document about the Bulimia Banquet gig in this famous Italian squat.
This band from Los Angels(California, USA ) plays a very personal style of alternative punk, somehow touching the indie, the math rock, and the hardcore punk. A genial band delivering explosive live performances with funny talks and lyrics. This tape is here to prove it with an excellent recording.
Kontagio Produzioni Tapes was a small distro releasing mostly live tapes recorded in this massive squat(probably the biggest in Europe).
Forte Prenestino is, in fact, a fort squatted on the end of the 80s and still alive and kicking. 
To complete this post I am attaching few nice pics of their gig at the Diskarika Occupata in Foggia during the very same tour.
 Big thanx To Giuseppe M. for those pics.
Enjoy it.

Re-manipulable interactive music, texts and images

A package designed and coordinated by

DIGITAL INTERACTIVE HAPPENINGS is an anthology of music, texts and images fruit of a team-work carried out by many people who have adopted methodological and creative criteria allowing other people's works to be manipulated in succession. The result: a huge joint cut-up. Networks of musicians, writers, and artists throughout Italy have been teamed up by Tommaso Tozzi to produce music, texts and images by sequentially re-manipulating each other's cue. In the majority of cases, the tool for such creative works has been a computer. All have been recorded in the form of digital data to allow anyone having a personal computer to join the networks and participate in the creation of open-end artistic works. Some works have been carried out and exchanged by exploiting the HACKER ART BBS, a digital data bank which can be accessed via computer and modem.
Writers : Agenzia di Comunicazione Antagonista, Baroni (Rumore), Bedini (Gronge), Branzaglia, Tsche @ Streik (Officine Schwartz), Daolio, Damsterdamned, Decoder, Gasparinetti, Gavyna, Giannuizzi, Gros (Officine Schwartz), Mace (Trap Magazine), Roby One Kenoby (Amen), Luigi e Oliver (Nautilus - Lega dei Furiosi), Perretta, Philopat (Decoder), Pinto, Renzoni, Spalck (Pankow), Storai, Valcavi (Informe), Vitolo, Bramante (Wide Records), Zingoni (G.M.M.)
DIGITAL INTERACTIVE HAPPENINGS has been self-produced by Tommaso Tozzi with the collaboration of:
Leonardi V-Idea (Genova), Neon (Bologna), SiLab (Firenze), Paolo Vitolo (Milano), Wide Records (Pisa).
CD-ROM, book (161 pages) and floppy disk (packed in a single 5 V4" floppy disk-container made of rigid, transparent plastics) has been distributed at the social centers, self-run distribution outputs, floppy-disk shops, bookshops, art galleries and computer shops.
Printed in 1100 copies (sold out).

v.a.-RAMBO Vol II, I Want You To Listen-(Irre Tapes-Germany-c60-1989)

14th release by this legendary German label covered in this blog few times already. It came out as limited edition of 500 copies.
Irre Tapes was run by Matthias Lang which evolved out of the IRRE Fanzine he published regularly during the early 1980's covering New Wave, Post Punk,and the German Underground.
With his 3rd Tape Compilation Ein Herz In Not he started IRRE Tapes which was mainly active in the late 80s/early 90s and released material by the likes of Brume, Maeror Tri and City Of Worms and loads of lesser known and stylistic different artists (Unpleasant Surprise, The Fuckedtones, Magic Moments At Twilight Time, Doc Wör Mirran) covering the whole range of the Independent Underground from Experimental Electronica to Guitar Pop.
In true DIY spirit, he supported the international network of small labels and fanzines through editing the free IRRE Newsletter to spread info and contacts and writing occasional reviews for various publications. Most of his Compilations should be seen as an attempt to promote lesser-known artists and labels. Without a doubt  he was one of the driving forces of the German Tape Scene.
He finally called the label days quits in 1994/1995 but soon re-appeared as collaborating and networking artist Mr. Moto (2).(from discogs)
Enjoy it.

SIVULLINEN Newsletter 2/97-(Sivullinen-Finland-1997)

Sivullinen was a newsletter edited by Jouni Waarakangas in Helsinki(Finland)!!!Jouni was printing in it everything that was coming out from the underground world.This newsletter had no borders!!! 
We could find in its: news about zines, comics, tape labels, mail art, anarchist newspapers, poetries, short stories, experimental music, adverts for future compilation tapes, flyers of bands and their productions, mail art projects and whatever was related to all those subjects.
The graphics layout was messy and at the same time funny on one A6 size folded page or more pages.
It was printed 4 times at year in a print run of 1000 copies and it was free although a donation of stamps would have been always very appreciated.Jouni was into trading zines and cassette productions!!
Sivullinen was also a great fanzine created by Jouni and I have already posted few numbers as well as a couple of issues of this newsletter, you`ll find it all here.
Enjoy it.
