STEFANO GIACCONE - Cosi' Che Va / Tsoai-Talee ‎- (Jason Family-UK-2001)

 Italian but born in Los Angeles (USA) in 1959, moved to Torino, Italy in 1966. Since summer '98 he is living in the UK.
Self trained, Stefano Giaccone plays sax, guitar and sings.
He started playing in 1973, following lots of different musical fields since then: folk-rock to jazz, punk to avant-garde rock and has performed regularly either with bands or as a solo artist. His musical career developed inside the independent and underground scene and he is regarded as an influential songwriter since his leading role in the Italian music scene of the eighties as founder of Franti, the record label Blu Bus and a 3 years engagement with Kina (4), one of italian best known Punk bands.
His collaboration with Lalli, the former singer of Franti, gave birth to several projects such as Orsi Lucille, Ishi and Howth Castle.

In 1998 Stefano released his first solo album, 'Le Stesse Cose Ritornano', under the alias Tony Buddenbrook.
Stefano has been working at a trilogy of mini CDs, 'The Blue Color' which have been published in 1999 to 2001. They all evolved in collaboration with british musicians. An independent label based in London, Jonson Family, has published a single of his songs.
The Florence based label Santeria released the album, 'Tutto Quello Che Vediamo...' in March 2003, recorded partly in the UK (with collaborations by Clive Painter-Broken Dogs and Dylan Fowler) and partly in Italy, produced by Perturbazione's Gigi Giancursi.

SIEGMAR FRICKE - 1987- (Ha-Releases - Holland - c60 -1990)


"Siegmar Fricke started his first musical experiments in 1981 using tape-recorders and shortwave-radio signals to create collages of musique-concrète. After intense activities in the European tape-scene between 1985 and 1993 Siegmar Fricke founded Efficient Refineries and Ambulatorio Segreto in collaboration with Miguel A. Ruiz and Stefano Barban. He also founded Doppelwirkung together with Michael Wurzer. Several collaboration-projects with Italian sound-artists Maurizio Bianchi and Giancarlo Toniutti were realized as well.

Siegmar Fricke also activates under the monikers Bestattungsinstitut and Pharmakustik. 
Frickes approach to music is characterised by organic improvisational studies, free form, highly abstract withouth a trace of conventional. He characterizes his musical works as "Pharmakustik": Pharmakustik might be a new path of sound-innovation in today's technological music that often lacks the approach of profound sound-experimentations by focussing just on preset-sounds, melodies and familiar song-structures.

HIDIOUS IN STRENGHT - Nun With A Gun - (Inner-X-Musick-USA-1983)

 Hidious In Strength was an early project of John Zewizz started around 1982. The instrumentation was often a combination of synthesizer experimentation, tapes, and "found" vocals from TV.
Although Zewizz was the only studio member, the project sometimes performed live as a duo.

Inner-X-Musick: Label run by John Zewizz of Sleep Chamber.
Starting in 1979, the name of this label began as Triple-X (or sometimes XXX Organisation). Sometimes it was also called Innersleeve. The name Inner-X did not solidify as the main name for this label until around 1986.
The early cassette releases were numbered "XXX-###" and then sometime during 1984 there seems to have been a new cassette series begun numbered "XXX ###". The old series did not immediately stop; there were still "XXX-###" cassettes released in 1985. Please be aware of this and do not update any of the releases unless you have the release in hand. Also, if submitting a release please write the catalogue number as it is on the release.
Some of the cassettes do not feature catalogue numbers. In the tradition of Throbbing Gristle, Sleep Chamber attempted to record all of their live concerts and release them on cassette. Twelve of those that didn't make it onto releases in the XXX series were released in more basic packaging and were just given numbers (such as "#5"). These twelve tapes were also released together in the "Best Ov The Rest" boxset.
There also appears to have been some slight inconsistency in the numbering of vinyl releases.

CO-FUSION ‎- Co-Fu - (Sublime Records-Japan-1998)

Co-Fusion's debut, CO-FU, starts with the bass madness of "Strutin'"... and that's before the crazed horn sample comes in. "Zit'r Bug" has a sharper edge to it with its metallic overtones and insistent drum bass, while the breaks on "You Looking For" helps secure the swarming synths above it. The clattering percussion on "Cycle," as well, shows off their real strength: those beats. The metallic tones come back on "Dizzy," accompanied by a brighter melodic line, while "A.T.P." strikes a straight-forward 4/4. A perky electro creeps into "Early Summer Daze," and "Jungler Gray" brings in a thoughtful guitar in towards the end. A hint of funk enlivens "Wilbee Wilbee" and a bit of sci-fi spaciness whistles into "Five Forty." And "Torn Open" closes the album on a more pure note of funk, reappropriating some soundtrack horns to be placed into a series of quick breaks. There's no confusion with Co-Fusion. click me (review by scoundrel,published on Discogs July 16,2016) Sublime Recs Offical Webpage
