Mick Ness/Dante's Inferno (tape, Tago Mago Holland 4753, 1983)
I know, I should try to post the 2 LPs released by Mick Ness, an Amsterdam band, but I don't have those. Instead I have this. Mick Ness' real name is Mick Witkamp, who started to play music in 1975. After 1997 they are part of the Dutch no wave Ultra movement, with a drummer on a metal drum kit, saxophone and Witkamp on vocals. In this period they make the recordings for this tape. Later on they are less experimental and more Joy Division like. From 1989 Mick Ness is the frontman of a Hungarian band Sexepil.
On this tape there is also the French band Dante's Inferno, of whom I know nothing. The thing was released by Tago Mago, the infamous French magazine, who had a department in Holland at that time. I must have it somewhere, but not here where I live. So only the music.
