Fugitive - Ache For Love (tape, No Label Produktie Nr. 1, 1985)


Someone named Pieter wrote me some two weeks ago, saying how happy he was he found music of his band Fugitive posted and we exchanged some e-mails. In the end he send me some more music from his band. The four songs of 'Ache For Love' were released on cassette, and the four from 'Poisoned Desire' are unreleased, but were recorded in a studio. They started in 1982 as The Axe and Pieter joined as singer in 1983 and the name was changed in Fugitive. In 1986 they changed their name into A Fugitive Of Mercy, more on them later. They stopped in 1988. Great doom rock!
Ok so Pieter was very kind and send me a box of records and tapes to share with you. Which I will be doing the next week. Since I am again gone for a few days, this post is for saturday, plus two more of his donation for sunday and monday.

Debiele Eenheid - Life Is Hell (tape, Combinator Records 3, 198?)


From Rotterdam comes this craziness which they didn't record properly. Debiele Eenheid was a 'jazz punk' band from Rotterdam around the heavy Jazzbunker scene. More on that later. This tape was released by Combinator Records, and wether its this copy or the entire edition, its not the best tape quality in the world.

Finland Hardcore (tape, Eet U Smakelijk, 198?)


A few days ago I saw a new blog The Fallen Record Collection, who seems to be re-using what other people have posted already, and it had a lot of Terveet Kadet, a harcore punk band from Finland, and by strange fate Pieter also mailed me this tape with them on it, as well as Bastards and Riistetyt. As you may recall I am not the biggest lover of hardcore, but the reason for posting is that it was released by a Dutch label Eet U Smakelijk, who was released 'Alle 55 Kort', already posted here a long time ago.

For There Is No Heaven (tape, Fetisj , 1982)


From the Fetisj label here is a compilation with some of their bands, like Richenel (one of the few from this cassette world who got any real fame), Necronomicon, Mimi, Beez Kneez, Rite de Passage and Electric Party. More electro disco funk music. Submitted by Dr. Freakowitz.

Cybe - Cybernetika (tape, Syncop, 198?)


Another contribution from Dr. Freakowitz, this Cybe was from Haarlem, and I think Syncop was his own label with a few releases. Quite nice electro minimal synth music with not so much rhythm machines or vocals. I have no idea who was behind this, probably somebody named Siebe, a common Frysian name.

De Ontkenning Soundtrack (tape, Ding Dong Records & Tapes ODC 011, 1984)


Finally Dr. Freakowitz returns after some silence, with three posts. This is the first one, in which he gives a pretty unknown tape on Ding Dong Records & Tapes. Its music by Rob Hauser for a film by Orkater, made for the VPRO TV. Ding Dong's Ignit worked at that time for VPRO Radio ('Spleen' if you care to remember), so short ties on releasing this. Back then I (433 RPM) thought this was all pretty 'official' art business and it sucked that cassette releases were used for that. Now I think its pretty ok chamber music; I am so much more mild now.

De Fabriek - Music For Scanners (tape, De Fabriek Records & Tapes, 198?)


This could very well be a collaboration with Kapotte Muziek, since the cover indicates at that. Otherwise its a pretty obscure album of tape loops, radio noise and police scanners. Long before that other Scanner appeared on the scene!

Van Mens (tape, HP5, 1984), Character 6 - Eminenties (tape, HP6, 1986)



Two weeks ago I borrowed a small box of tapes from a friend and today is the final post I can make of this box and today is the final post with two highly obscure tapes. One is by Van Mens from 's-Hertogenbosch, a group around Frank van Mens (text, voice, music), Huub Urlings (music), Frans Leonard (music, production) and Josan Frissen (voice). Instruments used, according to the cover, TV, vacuum cleaner, various keyboards, various snares, percussion, rhythmbox, glass, voices, bagpipes and 'canned applaus'. Sound poetry meets experimental music. Mostly in Dutch, but quite nice.

On the same label, HP (not present in de Nederlandse Cassette Catalogus), is an even shorter cassette (single), with two pieces, 'Als Hij Komt...' (if he arrives) and 'Welkomstlied' (welcome song) and judying by the (stolen!) cover by cartoonist Opland, this deals with the visit of the Pope to 's-Hertogenbosch in 1985. I think with pretty much the same people. Maybe the donator of these tapes cares to leave an anynomous comment on this?

Yximalloo - Bush Of Bamboo (tape, Sakura Wrechords, 1986)


The second and last Yximalloo tape I borrowed, but there might be more. I looked very long and intense at the cover with and without glasses but I can't read the track titles properly. Maybe you can do and retag the songs.

Rod Summers - Helgisaga (tape, VEC editions, 19??)


This is a rip from the original tape release, but apparently there is a CD version to (thanks Jerry for letting me know). From the CD notes: The audio-drama Helgi Saga was written and recorded from May to November 1985. Inspiration sources for the original story were many and various but the main ones were my Viking friends Helgi "The Turtle" Fridjonsson and Por Elis Palsson, the Icelandic sagas, especially Burnt Njall's Saga, and the Bible, book of Ezekial, chapter one from verse four.
The story itself is a black comedy about the progress of a noble Viking who, whilst at battle on behalf of a Norwegian king, has a close encounter of the third kind with robot representatives from Cosmic Control.

La Revolution... Electroacoustique (tape, Colectif & Cie, 1990)


'This tape represents the works of the ten winners of the competition we organised to commemorate the 2nd centenary of July 1789 French Revolution' and the composers are inspired by that to create new works. Serious electro-acoustic music by Ch. Eloy, J.F. Mugnier, Ecole Nationale de Musique de Dieppe, Ph. jamin, F. Grunspan, A. Robin, Arnold & Schedel, R. Renouard-Lariviere and perhaps also surprisingly Autopsia and Luciano Dari (once the boss of Musica Maxima Magnetica, an Italian label)

Le Syndicat - Rectitude (tape, Le Syndicat 16, 1986)


I was looking at this box of tapes I borrowed and realized that I never posted a complete Le Syndicat tape before. They are a noise group from Paris, and have released many tapes and later on some CDs (with harsh techno music) and vinyl. They are still around, see the website which has an interesting history and such like.

Rod Summers - An Occluded Front At Full Moon (tape, VEC Audio, 1984)

Yximalloo - 15 Songs (tape, Sakura Wrechords Y-4323, 1982)


I must admit I was kinda surprised to see thatb Yximalloo entry on discogs is rather small, but I know he has done a lot more. "Naofumi Ishimaru is the man behind this strange Japanese act. Naofumi most notably took Yximalloo to notoriety when they played a gig at the lavatory in Honda's factory in Japan." It mentions this tape, but it says merely side a and side b, but whoever made the entry didn't have the version I have, since it does mention titles for all songs, which is more than 15 mentioned in the title. Quite wild, partly improvised music with lots of electronics.

Rod Summers - The Sound Of An Unsound Mind (tape, Vec Audio, 198?)


Over the weekend I got a small box of several tape releases by a friend who no doubt wishes to remain anonymous. I transferred them all, and in the next 14 days I will post them one by one. I won't spoil the surprise of saying what they all are, but the first one is by Rod Summers, of whom I posted music before. Here he deals with 'stories, effects and recordings', and falls into his work as a soundpoet I guess.

Assemblage Degenerator - De Gesloten Afdeling (tape, De Fabriek Records & Tapes, 1991)


On very few ocassions, De Fabriek acted as a label, with no immediate links to De Fabriek as a band. Behind Assemblage Degenerator we find Klaas Solenoid and Barry Kade Echo, also known as The Lost Attic, both close associated with De Fabriek, and musically along the lines of that and their own projects.

Recycled Body Programm - Themes Of Scenes (tape, Egmondse Klank Op-sessie, 1989)


More music by Bart Hanselaar, whom we also met with Black Death, The Hess Group and Royal Flush, which were all variations on the theme of noise, but here as Recycled Body Programm (he was also on the 'Statue Series' four cassette compilation with some rather ambient music) returns to the sampler and plays around with samples of classical orchestral music and reminded me a bit of a primitive late 80s Laibach. Nice enough.

Index Metrics (tape, Terminal Tapes 002, 1981)


Perhaps the shortest tape on this blog, as it lasts 10 minutes only. It is an one-off project by one Frank de Munnik and one Herbert Capelle, who were a member of Planung. This band from Enschede had a flexi disc with Dutch magazine Vinyl and I added their side of the flexi to this post along with the article (in Dutch) about them. This cassette has a solo piece by each. "Confused Reaction" is by Frank and 'Fields Of Force' is by Herbert. I know Planung released some more cassettes, which I never heard, but I would be keen to hear them. Planung is more of a band, no wave like, with influences of Cabaret Voltaire and A Certain Ratio, whereas the tape is more electronic.

O.R.D.U.C. - Pre Pink & Purple (tape, New Bulwark Records & Tapes, 1981)


In the early days of this blog I put up 'Pink & Purple' by O.R.D.U.C., today, towards the end of this blog, its time for the cassette version of that LP, which preceded the LP. I wrote back then:
"The name stands for One-O-Seventh Royal Dutch Underground Company and was led by Nicko Selen, who ran also the label, and later on IF Records (more of those records later), along with friends who played guitars and drums. Highly naive electronic music, partly inspired by krautrock. Released in an edition of 500 copies in five different coloured vinyls, each 100 copies. I think I have a lathe cut somewhere too, if I find it I will post this one too, one day. The band apparently still exist, they even have a myspace page."

Since then I have been in contact with Nico Selen every now and then and posted some stuff from his label. This cassette was a taster for the LP, and it has a coupon which you could send in to say which songs should make it to LP. I think I got the tape after the LP release, so I still have the coupon.

The Only Good Drummer Is A Dead Drummer (tape, Ruziek 05, 1987)


Things may not get obscurer than this. What you see here is the entire cover, but apparentely (according De Nederlandse Cassette Catalogus) it is released by Ruziek, a label from Utrecht, run by J.P. Kuil, who was the main man behind Vacuum. The label partly released punk and partly experimental music. This tape, according to the Catalogus, credited to El Ctrosan, belongs to the latter category. I guess its not surprise, when I say, 'and that's all I know'.
