Kapotte Muziek-Weapons Of Musick-(Midas Tapes-Holland-c30-1986)

Kapotte Muziek was founded in 1984 by Frans de Waard, then living in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Soon he was joined by Christian Nijs, who also lived in Nijmegen. They did not actually play together, though: Christian would record all the sounds at home on cassettes and give them to Frans, who would manipulate the material in different ways (pitch-change, loops, etc.).
This way of working (using 'second-hand' material and recycling it endlessly) became the core of the activities of Kapotte Muziek.
In 1987 Christian left the project in favour of playing rock-music in a real band. Until 1993 Frans continued the project on his own through the Kapotte Muziek By ... series, inviting as many musicians as he knew to send in material to be recycled. This resulted in collaborations with groups like S.B.O.T.H.I., Merzbow, De Fabriek, Yeast Culture, Odal, Asmus Tietchens and many others. Gradually, the harsh territory of industrial music was left behind and other forms of electro-acoustic music were explored.
Kapotte Muziek still exists as a studio-project of Frans de Waard. (from Discogs)

 Also part of the Blossoming Noise set (I have 2 left) was this august release, a particular early favourite. The a-side is recycling (as remixing was called back then) of the 'Electrocute' cassette and the b-side was a new piece of slowed down 'other' music. Released by my own Opus Dei Society (of which I will do a blog on its own soon) and Midas Music, cover shown here.

TEMPLE OF DAGON-Rlyeh Or Bust-(Self Released-USA-200?)

Temple Of  Dagon is a band from Los Angeles (USA) playing stench metal/crust, they, in fact, define their own music as Lovecraftian Crust/Grind/Thrash!
I have no info about this production, their Bandcamp Page doesn't list this Cd-r ep and it does not appear in a Discogs Page dedicated to them.
It contains 4 well-recorded tracks of pure metal/crust madness where their love for the myths and legends by Lovecraft is well revealed.
Enjoy it.

ESTOMAGOS VAZIOS-Vida De kaos/Boca De Esgoto-(Self Released-Brazil-1997)

Recorded sometimes during May 1997 this CD-R seems to be the only production by this Brasilian combo playing a raw form of HC punk with political lyrics sung in Brazilian /Portuguese.
The lo-fi recording kind of match with their super-raw style, the real sound of the very political underground punk where the messages are more important than the music.

MOLAR-The Time And The Motion Studies-(False Walls-USA-2004)

10 tracks of experimental electronics on this CD by this project  formed by:

Some avant-garde mixed with ambient and a few rhythms here and there with evanescent noises blending more weird electro-goings. 
I might not be able to describe these strange tunes yet this CD will make happy the lovers of certain rather obscure electronic voyages.
I haven`t got much into about this American label yet Molar`s music is somehow very enjoyable.

Old Vinyl compilation by the legendary Ant-Zen featuring great artists playing different forms of cold hard electronics. It came out in a limited "A Edition" of 27 copies with full aluminium plate cover, with a folder & 5 cards. 
 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.

L. S. DIESEL / 2000 DIRTY SQUATTERS - Double Your Money Or Take The Mystery Prize-(Scrap Metal Records-UK-1995)

Amazing split 12" with 2 legendary projects coming from the very underground squatting scene of the 90s. 
I wrote, already, about L.S. Diesel when I posted their classic album "Suicidal Dub" released by Charged in 1996.
2000 Dirty Squatters was a kind of European collective/band born in London on the end of the 80s, a long and detailed biography is here.
Scrap Metal Records was a sub-label of  Scrap Recs, the label founded by 2000 DS, their official webpage offers to us history, pictures, discography and related projects.
In this rare 12" LS Diesel shoot a splendid example of their very idiosyncratic style of electronic music mixing some peculiar hybrid of dub and techno with vocals while on the other side we`ll find the 2000DS playing their distinct and aggressive HC punk.
This is a classic vinyl documenting the great diversity and originality of certain obscure yet astonishing underground culture.  
Enjoy it.

DIAGRAM: A - Diagram: A - (RRRecords-USA-2004)

I already wrote about this American noise project when I posted the tape: Compression And The Process Of Turning Red released by Sound Probe in 1996.
Diagram A is an old project managed by Dan Greenwood who has operated as Diagram: A for nearly two decades. Long before his home, Western Massachusetts had anything resembling an active noise scene, Greenwood was altering old telephones, constructing masks and sleeves with built-in contact mics, amplifying tin cans, and fashioning an insular world of noise, obsessing over his own carefully-crafted systems of failure. (excerpt taken from the script  "Matt Krefting writes about Your Object" taken from Diagram;A blog where this is not listed). 
RRRecords is an experimental / noise/electronics label run by Ron Lessard, from Lowell, Massachusetts, USA. Each "Recycled Music" release has handmade artwork. Each is different in some way. Its official webpage is here.
Enjoy it.
