Van Kaye & Ignit ‎– A Slight Delay (cassette, 1980)


A slightly different and more obscure version of this release



Saturday, August 1, 2020

Mission Papua Holland ‎– Untitled (cassette, M.P.H. ,1988)

Pretty obscure tape, this one, of which there are only 12 copies. I posted some of their music before, so it's good to do this one as well. Band from 's-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands. Here is a more poppy mood but still electronic

No scans of the booklet, which contains photos of the bands performing on this two-day festival, Con-dom, The Haters, Merzbow (and the two them together) and THU20. Not indexed. Quite a noisy one

Noise compilation with Death Pact, Odal, Vox Populi!, No Unauthorized, F.A.R., Lyke Waje, Cinema Verite and Die Rache. Three hours of music!

Belt - S/he (cassette, 1991)

First release by Joel Bender, also knwn as Belt. He did only 3 in total. Solid industrial music.

But This Product Is Crap (cassette, My Smile Is A Mask Tapes 002, 1986)

A long time ago I posted the only other cassette by this label, a short compilation of Dutch punk bands. Now, there is the other one, also with punk music. With music by Scapegoats, B.T.D., Avskum, Scunner, Resistance, Running Riot, Crapscrapers, Mellakka, Strontium 90. Not indexed

Sex On The First Date With Boyd Rice (cassette, Epitapes , 1989)

Another compilation, probably poking fun at Boyd Rice; maybe it's a genuine love affair to the use of loops? I don't know. Click on the Discogs link if you want to see who's part of this. Not indexed.

Die Schönste Musik Of Japan Vol. 1 (cassette, Geschmack Records DSM 001, 1987)

Compilation cassette from this rather short-lived label with Merzbow, The Gerogerigegege, Incapacitants, Disacting Table, S.Core, Grim and Self Terror.

Rest In Peace - Dood (cassette, RIP Produktion KZS 002, 1982)

One of those I don't know anything about. A sort of naive new wave/punk music. Discogs says is a comic booklet but I don't have that. Not indexed

Rare Jongens Die Punkers (cassette, Midas Tapes ‎taped 003, 1982)

Midas Tapes (later Midas Music) released a lot of electronic and industrial music, but they started off (and before that as A Tapes) with punk and 'new wave' music. It contains music by Bounded Sound, The `berlin Wall, ZRQ, The Clefts, The Fall (the famous one, indeed), and ZRQ

Jac & Marc/Jac & Paul ‎– Pyramid Paranoid (cassette, Midas Tapes 006, 1984)

Two sets of guitar and bass improvisations by Jac van Bussel (also known as DMDN, member of THU20, Lewd, Bunkur) and one Marc Cuppens and Paul Driessen, both of whom I know nothing. This was released in an edition of 15 copies. Unindexed

Smexmec - (cassette, ClicheBootlegCenterTapesRecords&Publicery ‎003, 1983)

For years I only knew their short piece on Contactdisc 2, which I posted 12 or so years ago, but now I got this rip of their only official release. Last year I posted a demo of sorts. Not indexed.

Oost West (double cassette, Ruziek 14, 198?)

The final (double) cassette from Ruziek I post has no artist mentioned anywhere on the package, but according to Discogs members of Vacuum are involved in this. I may post the two LPs by Vacuum one day!

Friday, June 5, 2020

Christenskins Present (cassette, Ruziek #11, 198?)

I doubt if this a serious Christin punk tape, but you never know. It includes Christenskins, Vacuum, Danish Buttercookies and The $ñøяt

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.

Friday, May 22, 2020

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

Saturday, May 16, 2020

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
