Contactdisc 1 - 5 (5LPs, Stichting Stopcontact, 1981-1987)
The summer never started and holidays are soon over. I am not sure if I have time every day to do a nice post in the future, so I decided to a massive post for today: all five volumes of Contact Disc. The idea behind these records was simple: you make music for this record and every band pays along, pro rata, for the pressing. Each band gets their share paid in finished records. The idea came from Plurex with their '7 to 17 on 33' 7 inch, and was later repeated by other Dutch labels. A goldmine for nice experimental music, short tracks and some great synthesizer pop.
