Ilo Istatov - Lines (tape, New Bulwark, 1986)
One of the many names used by the same guy who brought us earlier O.R.D.U.C. He has a great sense of naivity breathing from much of his other work, but this tape, released on his own New Bulwark label shows he can do some great ambient music, with a guitar and two tape-decks. Not unlike Frippertronics, at least that's what I imagine when I hear this. Unindexed
The big box of tapes have arrived - it has some true gemms, some which I totally forgot about and some which can be chucked in the bin right away. So I'll start sorting this out soon.

A1. "Faces" 31:10
B2. "Lines" 22:01
B3. "Dates" 7:36
'Dates' was used by De Fabriek for their 'Attentie' release.
