DEAD VOICES ON AIR-Hafted Maul-(Invisible-USA-1995)

Dead Voices on Air (DVOA) is Mark Spybey's main musical project. It was formed in 1992 when he emigrated to Canada from his native England. Using improvisation and sound layering as a source for their music, DVOA blends processed sound from primitive instruments and toys into rhythmic structures or dark clusters of ambient sound. The result is music for the eyes. This is not ambient chill-out, nor is it music for wallpaper. It is organic, eclectic improvisation, cut up and spat out. Either framed into short pieces of music or rough blocks of noise. Panambience is the term coined that perhaps frames this approach most adequately. (from Discogs)
 Spybey has worked under the name of Dead Voices On Air (DVOA) for twenty -four years. He’s released numerous albums and collaborated with a variety of people, including members of Can, Faust, Swans and others. He was a member of Zoviet-France and Download. Other projects include Reformed Faction, Beehatch, Gnome and Spybey, Propeller and is an executive with the Dataist International. (from his Bandcamp page)
 Invisible Records is an independent record label based out of Chicago that has been giving artists a voice since 1989. The label is owned and run by Martin Atkins. Invisible is the main organiser of the Underground, Inc. association of independent labels.

v.a.-Punk Is...More Than The Government And Fashion Controlled Record Stores Offer-[Vol 7]-(Resistance Prods-Switzerland-c90-1993)

Another compilation of the series Punk is... a series already covered in this blog, as well as the label Resistance Productions managed by Lara, Pablo and FTS were active for 7 years releasing lots of stuff(7inches, tapes, zines, leaflets...).
As far as I know, Pablo started another label called Strongly Opposed when Resistance Prods ceased to exist.
It was compiled in June 1993 by Pablo! Songs ordered by Lara(of Örmaal Records) comes with 24 half sized page booklet with bands contributing a page each with lyrics, artwork etc., unfortunately not included here.
A good anarcho-punk compilation!Lots of good bands, political messages and good recordings.
Enjoy it.

FALO n1-(Fanzine-Spain-2004)

Free fanzine edited in Barcelona in 2004 and focusing on/against the patriarchy from a masculine point of view, in fact, its subtitle is Masculine Liberation Against The Patriarchy.
Subjects studied here: Relationships amongst the genders, social backgrounds and sexual relationships, emotional emancipation, myths about the masculine orgasm and a few more related issues.
I have found this little free zine very interesting and well done.
Unfortunately, it is in Spanish language only!

An old sampler of industrial,experimental electronics,avant-garde and early rhythmic noise released by the (now) famous Ant-Zen label.
It came out in a limited edition of 200 hand-numbered copies packaged inside a vinyl case, with a 40 page booklet & an insert-(not all the scans included here).
Ant-Zen Full name: Ant-Zen audio & visual arts.Selfpromoted as Industrial Music, Chilling Ambient, Technoid Rhythms & Power Electronics. Ant-Zen is deduced from "Anti Zensur" (= anti censorship).
Ant-Zen is the most important label in the newer German Industrial scene. It started in the early 90s as a tape label that later also released vinyl and cds. Mastermind S.Alt (Stefan Alt) also did most of the layouts and packaging of the releases. While the earlier releases are more into noise, the new output has a more technoid style that is still very experimental.
Ant-Zen is also the German distributor of a lot of other labels and runs a small mailorder.
Their actual webpage is here. 
Enjoy it.

All in all a very good fanzine with amazing articles and a positive attitude.

ZOVIET FRANCE-Assault And Mirage-(Red Rhino Recs-UK-1987)

Zoviet France is an idiosyncratic group of anonymous post-industrialists, dronologists, and pseudo-ethnomusicologists. Their investigations have taken them into fictional cultures where nothing is easily located and reality often slips into the hypnagogic. Having secluded themselves in Newcastle, England since their inception in 1980, Zoviet France has developed a radical relationship with the cheap technologies of old-fashioned tape recorders, homemade acoustic instruments, primitive looping and sampling devices, and basic dub trickery. From these machines, the collective has crafted a distinctly unique vocabulary of postindustrial sonic hypnosis. Just as Zoviet France's sound was alchemic reconfigurations of inexpensive technologies, their vinyl packaging literally covered their sounds with aluminium, roofing shingles and porcelain. This tape is crafted with 11 tracks of sublime noiz-ambient...it came out on the Red Rhine Records. Defunct UK indie label, founded in York in 1977 by Tony Kostrzewa. It had a Belgian division, Red Rhino Europe, that was distributed by Play It Again Sam [PIAS].
Red Rhino Records closed down with the financial collapse of Red Rhino Distribution in 1988.(all the info from Discogs)
Their actual webpage is here.
Enjoy it.

v.a.-Endorse It In Dorset Festival 2007-Vol 4-(Hogbitch-UK-2007)

This is a great cd compilation which came out to present the artists performing in the 2007 edition of this amazing festival held in the countryside in Dorset.
There is lots of cow-punk in it both as attitude and music.
Super cool bands, great fun: fast ska,crazy folk-ragga, country punk, deviated electronics, acid dub, cow-punk and a bit of pure rock make this cd-sampler a stunning document to explore and dance.
Hogbitch seems to be the personal label by Pronghorn: an UK band that promote themselves as The Kings of Cowpunk since 1992. 
To complete this post I am going to attach the video of the 'official' 2007 film from the Endorse it in Dorset Festival, total running time is 25 minutes, it has been split into 5 parts for Youtube, enjoy.

THEATRE OF HATE-Leeds Futuredaze Fest 26/9/81-(Not On Label-UK-1981)

I reckon Theatre Of Hate needs no introduction, they are, in fact, quite famous. Here a little note was taken from Discogs.
"Theatre of Hate is currently active featuring original members Kirk Brandon, Stan Stammers and John Lennard, and have recently released a new album, Kinshi. They are touring in March 2017 with Stiff Little Fingers.Current touring line up is Brandon, Stammers, Lennard, Chris Bell and Adrian Portas." 
This tape was probably recorded with a cheap tape machine yet the recording is pretty good and the cover sleeve reports the song-titles too.
Big thanx to Scott for passing me this precious pearl.
Enjoy it.
