v.a.-FLORALIA Vol. 1-(On/Off Records-Italy-1997)

Volume one of this great compilation series, I have already posted the Vol. 2.
Also here a bunch of obscure bands/artists playing various forms of psych-rock, it came out with a booklet reporting info and pics/graphic works about the bands. All the relevant scans provided.
 On/Off Records was an Italian independent label from Spotorno (Savona); in 1998 changed the name in beware! RECORDS, continuing the same catalogue numbering.
And also this time, It is a precious gift from my friend Dante, who kindly donated this amazing sampler as FLAC files adding a personal little note. A big Thank You, dear Dante.
Enjoy it.

 As with Vol.2, Floralia #1 presents us with a wide variety of indie-psych, rock & space-pop sounds. Mostly Italian bands this time, understandably. So far, I'm still only familiar with half of it, but the highlights for me are, naturally, Kryptästhesie (quite the Saucerful!), and Subterraneans (driving, retro fuzz), Olographic Landscape (bouyant interlude), Experimental Low-Fi Pop Oscillator (reminds me of The American Analog Set), the 2nd entry by Backwards,
Angus Bidoli (pre-launch warm-up). 

Gastel Etzwane provides the most welcome experimental sounds like the album's closer. As I hear flashes of early Floyd in many of the bands, which is also quite natural, then Gastel is the Ron Geesin of the entourage. (Dante)

ENEMA DIGEST-Baby Guts-(Exart-Holland-1984)

Recorded in Durham(UK) in October 1983 this tape is another manifestation by the projects Brobat Enema and Paul Daniels: 
A group of three hardcore industrial musicians from London, named after Paul Daniels, who was a famous magician & TV personality in the UK. The band set up a gig and announced it as Paul Daniels World Tour.
Paul Daniels is the same musicians as Brobat Enema and Enema Digest
(info from Discogs)
This cassette contains 10 tracks exploring the unlimited world of minimal lo-fi music touching the weird pop, the industrial music, some strange improvisations, rhythms and vocals experimenting the impossible and a new crazy muzak.
  EXART (label, studio and archive) was founded by Hessel Veldman and Nick Nicole (2) in October 1982. In 1978 Hessel had started composing experimental music and before 1978 he was playing the guitar in several local blues- and rock bands. The label wanted to spread new experimental and improvised music. The studio was the place to improvise, compose, record and make radio-programmes, mixes and remixes. At the same time, Veldman started to preserve sounds in the Exart archive. The label ended its activities in 1995, although there are rumours that Veldman has plans to do digitalized reissues of some of the releases.
Variations on the label name (Exart Cassettes, Exart K7) are used on some of the releases
(from dijima blog)
Enjoy it.

On`T Road n11-(Fanzine-UK-2009)

A pretty well-done zine about travelling and punk rock, as the author said in his introduction.
Many long personal writings and articles about his travels in many European countries, visiting places, cities and meeting people and punk bands. It is very entertaining and at the same interesting, a  zine that leaves space to many personal thoughts and experiences. 
There are also a few music reviews on the end of it but it is mostly about travelling and making new experiences.
I am adding here the introduction to this issue.
Enjoy it.

v.a.-RAPTUS-(Meccano Records-Italy-1983)

A piece of history of the Italian underground punk scene raging fully alive during the early 80s.
A bunch of very unknown bands, only very few of them kept playing and made a name in this scene... yet this is a real political statement of the very first punk explosion made of revolt as a way of surviving this oppressive society.
Meccano Recs is one of the first Italian record labels, who devotes priority attention to new musical influences, resulting in the the explosion of the punk phenomenon, from 1975 onwards.
Meccano Records is a record label founded in 1979 by Giulio Tedeschi.
Well-known artists discovered by Meccano Records are Righeira, Raw Power (2), Rough (6).
In 1985 the label changes artistic setting and name to become the Toast (2)
Enjoy it.
