The Christmas Gift

I have been wanting to post these when this blog was a daily concern, but I didn't do. I don't know why. Anyway, I won't tell you what it is. These are four CDRs made (in a series of six, but I don't have the other two) released by a radio show who commissioned Christmas songs from musicians passing their studio as a holiday present for relations. Made in the late 90s/early 00s and so perhaps out of the normal scope of this blog. That certainly can be said from the music, which includes alternative rock, singer song writers, experiment, dance music and much more. You can Google and try and find more information, but you can unwrap this gift and enjoy.
Oh, one of these four seems like a mis-pressing; the cover (and you will find Discogs as well) has a song that should be 3:25, but it lasts five seconds here. I have no idea how that happened, I got this CDR like that from the original source handing them out. I didn't notice back then? I can't remember.

z.B.u.ä with Kapotte Muziek - Unformal Sound Report #5 (cassette, 1991)

I don't make enough space for advertising other great blogs, but Bleak Bliss a great blog for obscure music. I stumbled upon this post and it says: ""Original cassette was 'Unformal Sound Report #5', which was released at 5/Feb/'91 and contained 2 long pieces. Each parts were reformed concerning each themes." I have no idea what Unformal Sound Report was ..."
Luckily we do! Thanks to the archives of Kapotte Muziek we can present this highly obscure cassette (not yet on Discogs; and yes, someone will add it and then some other smart person will post a comment 'it is on Discogs, dude' and then that comment gets deleted) and it includes the original cassette cover, the backside with a comment, and a handwritten cover with more information. Mister Kapotte Muziek couldn't remember much about this project when asked. Must be the age, I guess.
