Kees van Kalmthout - 'N Aangetekend Stuk (tape, Blessure Records, 1983)
The final tape (so far) on Blessure Records is by poet Kees van Kalmthout, who lived from 1948 to 1991, when he died of a cardiac arrest. He started writing poetry when he was 19, and also painted. In the early 80s he was the manager of MAM, the band by Tom America (their first LP, a true classic in my ears, was posted earlier on this blog), with which band Van Kalmthout also recorded this cassette. So much more music on this poetry tape, and some are in english. I hope I managed to scan the entire cover alright.
