Mail Music (tape, Psychic Rally, 1994)


A project organised by Joke Lanz (Sudden Infant) and Rudolv Eb.er (Schimpfluch), as part of a mail art exhibition, dealing with music send by mail. The cassette, a sort of broadcast on LoRa radio station in Zurich, documents the various pieces. It starts out with a collage of spoken word, the old Mail Music LP by Nicola Frangione and then, separate indexed here, the tracks by Factor X, Maggot Bile, TAC, Friedmann/Thur, Daniel Menche, Batchas, Aube, Macronympha, Telepherique, Clito Crime, Black Leather Jesus, K2, G*Park, Alvars Orkester, Costa Vece, Andy Viasmith, WTC, Zamlaka, Brume, Zapalka's Zespol, Dave Philips, Merzbow, Kapotte Muziek/IOS, Hess, Feine Trinkers and then a long outro, a collage of various bits. Look at the booklet, all scanned, and it makes more sense.

Tomorrow I move this blog into the final stage, after having scraped the barrel here and around the various collections of people that kindly donated stuff.

i never mind repeating myself: i started this blog with ripping my collection of real cassettes, and records (no cds), then started to borrow real records/tapes from friends. when this is exhausted it will stop. all of this stuff i have had in my hands as physical objects. this blog is not some grabbed together soulseek bullshit. when it is all done and said it will stop. i have no interest in keeping this going for the sale of my ego. that's not what this is about. just about good music which i think you should hear. if i don't have any more good music to share, the work is done.
