DE FABRIEK-Gold-(Self Released-Holland-C10-1980)

De Fabriek (The Factory) hails from the Dutch City of Zwolle and originally founded by Richard van Dellen and Andries D. Eker at the end of the seventies. Now the persons are Richard van Dellen, Louise Nanuru van Dellen (his wife) and Klaas Mons. Not considering themselves a regular band (for one thing, they are a label too) they present The Factory as some sort of workmen-union, and the musicians they work with as laborers. Music is created through workman tools and machinery. Throughout years they were recording with the likes of Solenoid (2), O.R.D.U.C., Technological Aquiver, Brume, Vivenza, Klinik, and Gen Ken Montgomery.(from Discogs)
This is their second cassette with 4 tracks of bizarre electronic spazzed out tunes. Their Bandcamp page is here where you`ll find tons of remixes.
Enjoy it.

This is the first zine released by this label,I have already written about this label when I posted the tape Arazzi by Ataraxia.
Energeia was a gothic, experimental, industrial and modern classical label and mail order based in Napoli, Italy. Founded by Davide Morgera (drummer for Underage, cult hardcore punk band from Naples) and Antonio Escalona.

This zine was their first experiment as underground press and It contains short stories, poetries, and drawings.
Some stuff is very nice...
In Italian language, only.

EXTINCTION OF MANKIND-Without Remorse-(Pas-83 Productions-Sweden-1993)

UK Crust Punk Band Extinction of Mankind were formed in 1992, and celebrate their 20 year anniversary this year (2012).
Over the past 20 years they have both recorded and toured with such punk/crust heavyweights as Misery, Wolfpack, Warcollapse, Doom, and Skitsystem to name but a few. Having been compared to artists such as Antisect and Ambeix, their sound is also akin to the crushing heaviness of Venom and Celtic Frost, pure crust to the core with heavy metallic riffs, raging percussion and socio-political lyrics furiously shouted in defiance.
With a worldwide following and devastatingly heavy live shows Extinction of Mankind are definitely an important part of crust punk history, and its future....(from their official webpage)

Give It All You`Ve Got-Catalogue-(Loompanics-Usa-1998)

Loompanics Unlimited was an American bookseller and publisher specializing in nonfiction on generally unconventional or controversial topics. The topics in their title list included drugs, weapons, anarchism, sex, conspiracy theories, and so on. Many of their titles describe some kind of illicit or extralegal actions, such as Counterfeit I.D. Made Easy, while others are purely informative, like Opium for the Masses. Loompanics was in business for nearly 30 years. The publisher and editor was Michael Hoy.
Mike Hoy started Loompanics Unlimited in East Lansing, Michigan, in 1975.[1][2] He later moved the business to Port Townsend, Washington, where his friend and fellow publisher R.W. Bradford had earlier located.
In January 2006, Loompanics announced that it was going out of business, and that it was selling off its inventory. In the spring of 2006, Paladin Press announced that it acquired the rights to 40 titles previously published or sold by Loompanics, including the works of Claire Wolfe, Eddie the Wire, and other popular Loompanics authors.[3](from wikipedia) click me

DECA-Estinzione-(Minus Habens-Italy-c46-1989)

Deca is the project of Italian sound artist Federico De Caroli- active since at least 1986 he has been creating a rather large opus of releases in the realms of experimental electronic music... to quote elsewhere: "Deca is the musical "alchemist" (as he is known in Italy) Federico De Caroli. He has gradually moved from the spacey and melodic style reminiscent of Jarre and Tangerine Dream that dominated his early works to a more experimental sound, involving elements of industrial, noise, "musique concrete" and even Dark Ambient." 
His official webpage is here, where you can read the bio, discography, concerts,concepts, side projects and much more.
This tape was released in a limited edition of  77 copies in 1989, and it is a kind of soundtrack for the book with the same name written by Federico himself 2 years earlier.
Minus Habens Records is the legendary Italian industrial and dark ambient label founded by Ivan Iusco in 1987 and still alive and kicking, its webpage is here.

THE BRISTLES-Ban The Punkshops-(Gothik Party Tapes-France-1985)

The Bristles” is a raw punk band formed in 1982 in Landskrona, Sweden. The name comes from GBH 12″ Leather, Bristles, Studs,and Acne. The band formed in the beginning of the second wave of punk, influenced by bands like The Exploited and developed from punk with Oi!-influences to a raw punk band (in Swedish, råpunk). Together with Swedish bands like Asta Kask, Sötlimpa, Existenz, Moderat Likvidation, Noncens, EATER, Anti Cimex and many others, the Bristles were the new breed of fast playing bands that released mostly singles, and did a lot of gigging. The band broke up in 1985. The band briefly reunited in 1996, and later in 2008. In 2012, the band’s second album, Bigger than Punk, was released.(from Discogs)click me
