Administratief Management ‎– Tibet & Australie (cassette, Ruziek Cassettes ruziek #10, 198?)

More from Ruziek, but this time it's not puk. This is more electronic pop music, minimal wave and some of these songs could easily fit on a compilation from the label that uses that as a name.

De Droog Tapes (Deel 1) (cassette, Ruziek Cassettes ruziek #6, 1983)

Another compilation by Ruziek, this time with Bart Droog, Vacuum, and Snortiblog. More rants and weird punk

Sibe Koster / Administratief Management ‎– Modern Music, Don't We? (cassette, Ruziek 2, 198?)

I have no idea who this Sibe Koster is, but along with Jan Pieter Kuil (him we know from Vacuum) they are also Administratief Management. More weirdo punk from this great label from Utrecht

Destructief Jong Nederland (cassette, Ruziek Cassettes ‎ruziek #3, 198?)

The second Ruziek cassette to post is also a compilation. The title is a reference to Constructief Jong Nederland, the youth club from Oud-Strijders Legin, a rightwing pressure group that existed between 1958 and 2010. The main portion is music by Vacuum, poetry/shouting/ranting by Bart Droog, some music by Ruzie and artists unknown. Pretty chaotic and great fun.

Ruzie (cassette, Ruziek Cassettes ‎#1, 1981)

About 90% what you find on this blog was ripped by the same group of a few enthusiasts, using each others technology. For the next few posts, until I say differently, I will post stuff from a good friend of mine, who has some interesting stuff. The first few were released by Ruziek Cassettes from Utrecht, The Netherlands. This label was run by JP Kuil. This is a highly obscure label where experiment and punk went easily together. Kuil was part of Vacuum, the punk band with a drum machine and which we will meet more over the next few posts. There were ties to the city of Groningen (I assume that's where Kuil came from), so we will see some of that too. Like the previous post, this is an fine collection of experiments and lo-fi rock, punk etc. So far, I only heard one release, 'The Only Good Drummer Is A Dead Drummer', so I am excited to finally post some more of this label. This is a great compilation to start with.

Pianoman is Dead (cassette, Finger In The Dike hole 021, 1981)

When I first heard about blogs around 2007, this cassette was one of the first I found. I had this cassette myself but never bothered to make a digital transfer and I was happy to find it online. I wanted to play the old rip again, found one track was lost so I decided to do a fresh rip and post it again, now with the booklet that was part of it. The booklet says that this is mainly "bedroom recordings, tryouts and other noise". Some punk also.
Of interesting note, two things. One member of Frigid Prams was Jeroen Flamman, who in the 90s scored big hits with gabber techno act Party Animals. Construction was the very first musical project by Frans de Waard, who is better known as mister Kapotte Muziek and still doing bits of experimental music these days. The mentioned Hatert Records he never properly started and was named after the suburb where he grew up. I am sure he's ashamed of this these days.

This release still didn't find its way to Discogs as of today

KAMPH ‎– Before & After Sex (cassette, Morpheus Editions , 198?)

Kamph (Or KAMPH) is a side project of Mission Papua Holland. I have no idea what the difference is between the mothership and this, I think, one-off release. Still pretty good ambient industrial music, like we know from their other work
