Angst & Danny van Looy - De Weg Naar De Hel (GBC 08, 19??), Madam Desmet - Molensteen (GBC 09, 19??)
The man behind Angst is Erik Vloeberghs, who ran the Gezonde Boerse Copulaties (Healthy Boorish Copulations) label, and whose main band was Angst. He also was part of Kwajongens In Bloei, The Parts (with the duo Club Moral) and also a writer. His stenciled and xeroxed books are great, nonsensical and wise. Pick your choose. Much of his stuff is available for download from here but some the labels releases aren't, such as 'De Weg Naar De Hel' (the road to hell), which he recorded with the otherwise for me unknown Danny van Looy. Sound collages, taped family conversations, and instrumental parts. Nice one. On the same label also a shorter release by one Madam Desmet. I have no idea who she is, but on the Club Moral it is said of this tape "literary ramblings of a local visionary", so included as a joke here. All of the Angst and Kwajongens tapes are highly recommended.
