Basic Principles (tape, 1985)


This is one one those tapes that could also be a demo, or a highly private release. Its one Waldimir Duijndam on synthesizer, tapes, loops and piano. Its not entirely ambient music, but also a bit experimental at times.

Frankfurt/Praha (tape, RDM, 1988)


This looks a like compilation of some kind, but I could detect or identify individual tracks here. Maybe one side has two bands from Frankfurt (Technische Abteilung and Radio Diffsuor Maracaibo) and on the other side bands from Prague: Maxa, Kvety Intimnich Nalad, Mondrian, Tristan 43, Odvazna Srdce. I might be wrong also. Quite experimental electronics.

Ax Genrich - RIF (tape, Transmitter 18, 198?)


Well, maybe the band is called RIF - now I look at the cover again. Oh well, that's about the extend of some of these obscure tapes I guess. They played punky new wave music and are from Germany.

Six Singles







We interrupt the flow from Eu Records with this anonymous donation from someone who I know and trust to deliver the real thing. Six 7" records. First there is the 7" noise compilation 'Easter, Puberty & Amplifiers, with Dog, Hyware, To Live And Shave In LA, The Flying Luttenbachers, ASM, Duotron, K Salvatore, Malta, Noggin, Rock Paper Scissors and Cock ESP. Each have a 1 minute track. Released by Ignivomous Records.
Also a compilation is 'Is It Safe 2' by Body Records (001), with Vomito Negro, Bill Pritchard, Absolute Body Control, Nicky Ricci's, The Klinik, The Splatters, Vita Noctis.
Then there is a limited 7" by Hyware on the Dutch Lab records label (003, 1995), with quite some noise, partly recorded live and a split 7" by Hyware and noise Armenia. Later Hyware evolved into Technoise, of which there is a 7" included here too. Radboud Mens' rework of Kapotte Muziek was released by Korm Plastics in 1997.

The Bearburger (tape, Uniton Records U018, 1983)


Norway's Uniton label mainly released vinyl, and Discogs doesn't list this cassettem but it lists a compilation on the same label with a track from this cassette (plus another compilation with them). The music is quite nice. Synth based ambient music, with small bits of rhythm.

Romantic Distortion (tape, Shot 002, 1983)


"An international group of musicians met in Berlin dec. 82. All sessions on this tape are played and recorded 1120 feet under the surface of the earth". Involved are Maria Weissgold (Praha), Murphy Tatcher (Johannesburg), Valentino Cawalho (Barcelona), Blake Colby (Houston), Steen Foss Andersen (Copenhagen) and Emad El Din Naguib (Cairo). Very improvised music, which sounds quite Dutch if you get my drift (think Suspect or Schalflose Nachte).

Kong (tape, 19??)


Most of the music posted on this blog was available in one form or another, and I rather not post demo's, but here I make an exception. I have no idea why I am doing this exception. Maybe because Kong always looked great on their four stages, with each member having one. Later on they became well-known. Heavy rock with samplemania.

Rasta Robert - Chronologie (tape, 1986)


Quite an odd tape. You could think this is reggae stuff but its not, or not really. It hints a bit towards it, more dub like if you wish, but also some overtone singing. Quite experimental stuff. From The Netherlands.
