Throw Me Your Finger - Eleven Chants From Heaven (In Stereo) (tape, Finger In The Dike, 198?)
The first time I heard Throw Me Your Finger was on the Korm Plastics compilation 'Katacombe Vol. 3', with an excellent piece of industrial drumming and classical music (Anton Bruckner, my father knew it). The only other release they have, save a track on the 'Illuminated No. 2', which I posted earlier and '6x10=60 volume 1', is this thirty minute tape on Finger In The Dike, one of the first Dutch cassette labels. According to the insert Throw Me Your Finger are Dirk de Vries and Roelof-Jan Minneboo, the latter still active in art (I believe) and as far as I know they were from Amsterdam. This tape wasn't the same as the first meeting, but 'I think He's Dead' is a very nice and humorous piece.
