Illuminated no. 1 and no. 2 (two tapes, Illuminated, ?, 1985)
The rather short lived magazine published by G.do Hübner, still of Das Synthetische Mischgewebe fame. The magazine came with a cassette. Volume one is rather short, with tracks by Falx Cerebri, Ltn. Murneau, Mauthausen Orchestra and Das Synthetische Mischgewebe. The magazine itself was a bunch a of A3 sheets with collages, info and such like. Number two was a c90 cassette, with a small book with information on everybody who contributed plus a an A4 set of sheets with collages. Music here is by Black Humor, Konstruktivits, HG Wells, Throw Me Your Finger, Pascal Comelade, Merzbow, Tomas Schmitt, George Miller, Bande Berne Cremetoire, Hotel Coventionell, Franz John, Das Synthetische Mischgewebe, Genetic Plans, Diseno Corbusier, Etant Donnes, The Haters, Falx Cerebri and Oskar Sala. I didn't find time to make any scans (not having the means to scan A3 pieces of paper, and a sufficient lack of knowledge of photoshop and such like). But the music stands easily by itself, I think. Two great compilations.
