Blue Murder (cassette, Staaltape, 1982)

People often think that Staaltape, the label connected to Staalplaat, the cassette store from Amsterdam (now based in Berlin), is an industrial music label, with releases by Laibach as their first, but before that they released Blue Murder. This was six piece band from Amsterdam, following Soviet Sex, with some great guitar tunes and vocals. Later on they also released a bunch of records. Maarten van der Ploeg became a well-known designer and computer artist and died in 2004. Recently there a book about his life and work was published
