YEAH! N3/4 - (Fanzine-Italy-1990)

 Mastodontic issue of this Italian fantastic fanzine,169 pages full of long and in depth interviews, articles, rants, fanzines and music reviews, comic strips and much more.This is an exquisite example of underground press at its best. A great tool to research the lively underground world of the early 90s touching the politics, various music scenes (industrial,experimental,rock,punk), the  mail art, the alternative press and more. Unfortunately only in italian language. Enjoy it if you are Italian literate.

DIVISION BY ZERO - (Self Released-USA-199?)

 Another great tape by this American band from from Blaine(USA).I have already posted their third tape "May Come As A Smooth Round Stone" and another one simply called "Divison By Zero" released in 1991. With a  spartan handwritten cover reporting only the song-titles, I hope that  I have indexed it properly. The only person to know would be Shawwano,who was playing in this band and spotted the other tapes that I have posted in 2014, leaving a few messages.

This cassette has a few talked tracks and their music consists of some electro punk with some industrial hints touching the noise,the avant-garde and the ambient music,only to turn again into some sort of messy noisy-electro.

I think there are no many copies of this one around...! Enjoy it.

ZOUNDS - Live In Hackney And Singles - (Class War-UK-1993)

 Fantastic tape by the legendary Zounds,this is not listed on the Discogs Page dedicated to them!! Here the introduction from their Wikipedia Page

  Zounds are an English anarcho punk/post-punk band from Reading, Berkshire, England, formed in 1977. Originally they were part of the cassette culture movement, releasing material on the Fuck Off Records label, and were also involved in the squatting and free festival scene. The name of the band is derived from the old English minced oath "zounds", a contraction of "God's wounds", referring to the crucifixion wounds of Jesus Christ, formerly used as a mildly blasphemous oath. 

 Their webpage is full of info, discography, history,pictures and much more. This tape was a prisoner benefit released by Class War. The b/w xerox folded  cover sleeve reports all the song titles and a few info. Enjoy it.
